Devin Redmond CEO and Cofounder Theta Lake:
The traditional office as we know it will disappear. The pandemic-specific concept captured in the phrase ‘work-from-home’ will be replaced by the permanent concept of ‘work-from-anywhere’ by leveraging collaboration platforms and cloud-based applications. Remote collaboration platforms will become the “new normal” and the traditional office as we’ve known it won’t come back soon.
Organizations will double their usage of cloud-based video conferencing and collaboration tools in 2021, resulting in more compliance violations. The vast majority of video users will turn on their cameras most or all of the time – leading to video hosts suffering from unintended incidents as their cameras capture NSFW events or controversial background scenes. This will result in an increased amount of compliance violations.
