BP announces post-pandemic shift to home working?

This week, BP announced that 25,000 of its office-based staff will be expected to work from home two days a week. Of course, for some businesses this is nothing new. But for corporate giants like BP, it demonstrates the huge shift in attitude towards remote working.

It will be interesting to see over the coming months, how many businesses – from the giants to the SMEs – make this move in their post-pandemic approach to their working patterns.

To anyone making the move, although it might seem like a complex task, moving your business over to the cloud doesn’t have to be daunting. And it can reduce your overall running costs, as well as keeping your data, devices and network secure – regardless of the multiple locations of you and your team.

How boredom can lead to your most brilliant ideas?

We’re often telling our children that the best ideas come from boredom, yet it’s a notion that, as adults, we struggle with – we simply don’t allow the time to be bored.

Manoush Zomorodi’s TEDEd is FULL of interesting information… A decade ago, we shifted our attention at work every three minutes – and now, it’s every 45 seconds. Every day. On average, we’re switching IT tasks 566 times a day – and checking emails 72 times a day. It really is exhausting stuff!

We’re always “on” – replying to emails and booking calls when previously we would have just enjoyed a brief moment of “down time”. But when we slip in to “default mode”, the results can be staggering. Awesome ideas, brilliant problem solving and great strategies…all appear with such clarity.

Market leading tech and intelligent thinking?

We strive to work with the best and as far as WAN edge infrastructure goes, there is no better choice than VMware SD-WAN by VeloCloud. Their market-leading technology is truly top notch… just ask Gartner. It’s the unique intelligence of VeloCloud’s SD-WAN technologies combined with the assurance of VMware’s partnership with Microsoft that made their solution an easy choice for Azured’s NWaaS.

Meet the team…?

All the best ideas come from a beer, a beach and a BBQ…Azured started out in sunny Melbourne, and we quickly became no.1 Microsoft Azure Partner in Australia. In 2019 we packed up our parasols and launched in the UK.

We’re a cloud network and security company, helping SMEs work safely from home. We combine market-leading SD-WAN technology from VMWare VeloCloud with next-gen firewall technology from Palo Alto.

Azure makes it possible. Azured makes it easy.
