Working From Home
In Episode Two, Dominic, Mike, and Zack talk about what it's like to work from home, and some of the longer-term implications of that switch. Does this mean SD-WAN and VDI are going to have the day? Does the corporate network edge now reach into employee's homes, and does that mean surveillance is okay? What about onboarding, especially for interns or people starting their first job in this climate? And how come we aren't hearing more about VR?
