Coordinate activities that are designed to ensure the connectivity of the business functions. Identify the sites that you feel are going remote and equip them with the technology that they need to be productive with. The team should always be well-equipped and alert. They should create scenarios associated with the outbreak.
Milind Wagle, CIO, Equinix aptly quotes it in one of his excerpts, “My department has been actively involved in crisis management and discussing the ‘art of the possible’ since the onset of the coronavirus in the U.S. No one expected a crisis as big as this, but I’m seeing natural leaders emerge in my entire organization”
