Flexible workstyles are important to employees today — even more than pay raises, a new survey by Softchoice finds. Almost three-quarters (74 percent) of respondents said they would change jobs in order to work from home more often, even if their salary stayed the same.
However, collaboration technology is a barrier to flexible workstyles. The majority (83 percent) of respondents use technology to collaborate in real time with people in other locations. But 74 percent say frequent technical difficulties impact the collaborative experience. Trouble connecting, poor connection quality and dropped connections are among the top technical issues.
In most cases, the WAN connection is the root cause of these problems. Most home-based workers have a consumer-grade broadband Internet link, and those services simply don’t provide the quality needed for communication and collaboration tools. SD-WAN is supposed to resolve those issues but can you deploy it for home-based workers?
