We live in an era of risk and instability. Now more than ever before, leaders are facing changes and complexity. In order to succeed they must be flexible and adapt quickly to new challenges and uncertainties. Under new circumstances, remote work has become one of the fastest growing trends in the modern workplace.

How to schedule a Teams Conference Call on Behalf of Another User

Each day supervisors face challenges in their day-to-day activities. And having an assistant who helps you manage your meeting requests and responses on your behalf is very important and helpful. You can always grant the delegate access to your Outlook calendar to ensure that your executive assistant can easily schedule appointments right from your calendar while not actually being a part of these meetings.


Microsoft Build 2020

Microsoft’s build conference kicked off this year as a fully remote event, with keynotes, panels, and even breakout tutorials all online. Microsoft updates “Fluid Framework” which aims to unify all Office 365 apps into a single program, in addition to making individual elements of a document, say a table or a paragraph of text, shareable and editable by anyone. Beyond office, Microsoft is expanding it’s cloud offerings with services tailored to various industries, and is launching with cloud services especially for Healthcare.


Worldwide Government Security

Government agencies work hard to deliver value to society. As modern technology shifts societal behavior, citizens expect their governments to adapt accordingly. The reality today is that confidence and trust in government throughout much of the world are consistently low and constantly being challenged. Public officials have additional pressure now to double down on their good stewardship of sensitive information, but they are also required to do more with a smaller budget, which can be a hurdle to delivering on these commitments.

How to organize remote work

When people ask us about remote work, we tell them our team and I make sure every our employee has the tools, resources, and solutions to be as productive, creative, and secure as possible—working from any location and on any device. Below, I’ve identified some of the top ways we are enabling remote work at IT Partner. I hope you find them useful.


Remote work: our expirience

As you might know IT Partner work as a distributed team. From 2014 (some of us even earlier) we have been working and collaborating remotely. It wasn’t simple shift. You should challenge yourself every day ‘cause you have Youtube, Facebook, Netflix and all this stuff around. Also, you may have kids and pets, probably. As Jimmy Kimmel said yesterday, “Did you know you can make coffee at home?”. And he even spelt his name on a cup correctly :)
