- Robust Infrastructure (including broadband, end user computing etc..)
- Agile Working Culture (work from anywhere)
- Collaboration Tools (including office 365, G Suite etc..)
These are only some of the success factors which allowed organisations empowering their employees to embrace remote working. More success can be attained with the investment in
- Platforms (including CRM, ERP etc..)

Organisations should continue to invest in Digital Technologies depending the type of industry. Industries who have had less impact should continue with their Digital Transformation Programme and their investment of at least 70 to 80%. Other industries who have had impact should still continue slowly but surely with the investment of at least 30 to 40%.
Digital Transformation for organisations should be designed in such a way that could easily be adopted to changing needs with respect to environment, industry, regulations and other impacts.
