Avanade Ireland’s Malcolm Barske discusses the tech trends he sees coming down the line and how Covid-19 has affected them.

Covid-19 has forced many businesses to pivot and quickly change their operations in order to work within restrictions and address client needs.

Avanade Ireland’s security lead Malcolm Barske said the current crisis has caused many companies in Ireland to speed up plans for digital transformation, for example.

“What we’re finding now is adoption into Azure and adoption into Office 365 is at front of mind for most clients at the moment,” he said.

Barske added that while adoption into cloud is quickly becoming essential, data must also continue to be protected.
