To ensure that your cloud applications can be accessed remotely, make sure you have updated the settings. Ensure that your team has the appropriate devices to manage the performance and memory requirements of all cloud applications in your business.
Step 4: Create a remote communications plan
You don’t want employees working in silos during these difficult times. Now is the time to get together and create a comprehensive remote communication plan. Use tools such as Slack or Microsoft Teams for team communications, “away”, messages, project-specific chat channels, and team collaboration tools to make sure everyone is on the same page.
