There has been a rapid and drastic shift in many industries to a hybrid workforce - a mixture of onsite and remote personnel. According to many projections this trend will continue to grow throughout the next couple years. By 2024, many believe that 56% of the work done will be offsite (AT&T via prnewswire). They also suggest that 72% of businesses are underprepared and don’t have a solid hybrid work strategy.

Microsoft recently referred to this as “The Next Great Disruption” (microsoft.com) One of the many aspects that can present a challenge is the technology infrastructure.
