Even before the pandemic, cloud-based tools were surging in popularity. As the rise in remote work has skyrocketed due to COVID-19, businesses have been forced to rely more on cloud computing in order to improve their internet connectivity and security of vital data.

If you haven’t noticed the IoT (internet of things) market has taken off. There are now 26 billion IoT devices with 127 new devices being connected every second. It is predicted that the IoT device market will reach $1.1 trillion by 2026, aided by the evolution of enabling tech like 5G (more on this next time).
