Welcome to the May edition of the Storage magazine eNewsletter, and as I write this we seem to be no nearer to any meaningful conclusion to the global lockdown that has seen the economies of pretty much every country in the world grind to a halt. The UK seems to have an air of resignation about it at the moment, as opposed to the shock that was felt when restrictions were first introduced.
It has been encouraging to see though that for many people working from home has proven far more manageable than might have been anticipated - and this is due in large part to the major role that technology now plays in our home lives as well as our businesses. Without always-on broadband it is inconceivable that the country would have managed to soldier on as it has done - can you imagine what might have happened if this pandemic had hit us 20 years ago before widespread smartphones, video chat capabilities, and collaboration tools? It may seem an odd thing to suggest, but perhaps we have actually been incredibly lucky in the timing of this global disaster.
On a lighter note I’d like to remind our readers that nominations for the 2020 Storage Awards are still open, till July 13th - so some things are carrying on (almost) as normal, albeit somewhat delayed. For attendance enquiries, as ever, contact Lyndsey at the office.
