Where every one is waiting for the real impact of COVID-19, business continues as normal. However clients get used more and more to virtual meetings and video conferencing.
Now the first storm has been weathered, companies are getting ready for the next big wave. In order to survive they need to re-baseline their cost base, which requires an in depth look at their way of operating and the IT resources required to facilitate this.
Hence currently i am busy with several optimization and cost reduction initiatives to help adjust clients to the new normal.
Sofar without travel to the client location, which has to wait a bit longer.
Keep the inspiration when working from home and do not forget, set your goals high, otherwise you never improve and exceed the market expectations.

While the whole world is trying to manage the impact of the pandemic outbreak of COVID-19, it also creates a world of opportunities. I am convinces that people will be talking about a new BC (Before COVID) and AC (After COVID) time.
The current global situation will have impact on the way we act, behave and manage things. Work from Home has become the standard and companies like Microsoft do not expect to open up their physical office locations before beginning of 2021.
IT has become more and more important how business operate and applications should be able to function and manage remote, hence many quick and dirty actions have been taken in the last months, where in many cases the Supplier has taken advantage of the situation and urgency at client side, which results in an inflated cost level for the client.
Now is the time to review and act and redefine you future partners, want to have a discussion on the topic and see how I can support you in your cost optimization efforts, please contact me.

The first Quarter of 2017, has been a quarter with many interesting projects across Europe. I continue to see IT - Suppliers chasing Clients and spreading their Fear, Uncertainty and Doubt, in order to push them into new commercial negotiations and solve a "Problem"that actually does not exist.
One of the Key elements for Clients to work on is to fully understand their contractual rights and the key dates of the contract, like notice period for terminations, date for usage reporting, etc.
