Atea Action 2021
Atea is the largest IT company in the Nordic and Baltic countries and they want to keep their customers up to date with the latest developments in the IT world. To do that, they organize various events and one of them is Atea Action. It has become a meeting place for IT people. The main topics this time were home office and working remotely.
Over the last two years, the number of people working in home offices has grown steadily, and this would not have been possible without the rapidly evolving IT services. Starting with how people communicate with each other, ending with how to ensure maximum security in the home office.
The transition to working remotely was difficult for both companies and employees. Companies had to ensure that necessary hardware and software were available for proper working conditions. This required a rapid response and was costly. This form of work was unfamiliar to employees and digital skills were also initially lacking.
One of the goals for IT companies who were represented at the conference was to help make working outside the office more efficient and safer. This will be done with smart software solutions as well as convenient and environmentally friendly devices. New and user-friendly solutions are definitely needed, because remote working will not disappear any time soon. For companies, this means great savings on real estate costs, and for employees it means more flexibility and free time, as there is no transport to work and back.
