Times they are a-changing! The dust may be settling a bit as companies are adjusting to a distributed enterprise, which takes on a whole new meaning from what we knew three months prior. IT leaders are reflecting on the quick decisions that were made and are starting to develop strategies beyond a temporary pivot. Business leaders had their business continuity strategies tested and are finding out just how resilient their business is. Business is moving, and sure it looks a little different than how it did a short time ago, but IT resiliency is now the topic of discussion.
Given the changes impacting security, connectivity, scaling virtual infrastructure, supporting a remote workforce, shifting to the cloud, navigating supply chain constraints (the list goes on), IT leaders are looking to the future for next gen technologies with steadfast requirements of flexibility, agility, efficiency, and as you will see in this week's theme of the blog post—resiliency.
In order for developers to keep up with the speed of business, new innovations in storage, backup, and disaster recovery are being rolled out at a breakneck pace.

The old fable of the lion and the gazelle is a great analogy for business today. Each day the lion must outrun the slowest gazelle or starve. Each day the gazelle must outrun the fastest lion or perish. Whether you are a lion or a gazelle, when the sun comes up, you best be running. The same is true for your business because tomorrow, you best be running. The main difference for many businesses today is it’s not just for when the sun comes up. It is all the time.
