The pandemic has brought into sharp focus the need to continuously plan for future risks and scenarios.

The crisis-of-the-century has given huge rise to the digital commerce and the contactless product delivery is likely to continue long after the pandemic is gone.
Consumer behaviors continue to be driven by their new personal circumstances, and stay-at-home mandates. With more time spent at home, consumers are engaging in renewed activities, such as conduction board meetings online through video conferencing, taking online classes and connecting with others virtually, such as through online bars. Virtual collaboration is being stepped up to flatten the impact curve of the pandemic and reshape businesses through collaboration technologies.
