The move to a home working environment for many has underscored the importance of software, to collaborate, be productive and to keep sales coming in.
Already thoughts are turning to what will happen after life gets back to its “new normal” and the software industry is already laying out its hopes, with BSA | The Software Alliance sharing its Response & Recovery agenda.
The industry organisation wants governments across the globe to learn the lessons of remote working and take steps to provide more flexibility going forward into a post-COVID-19 future. Many workers are expecting to remain working from home for some time to come and the use of software and cloud tools needs to be extended to as many people as possible, both now and in the future, according to the organisation.
“BSA’s members create the trusted enterprise technology platforms that power the remote economy,” said Victoria Espinel, president and CEO of BSA | The Software Alliance. “People across the globe rely on software to work, learn, run their business, and stay connected with their loved ones during the COVID-19 pandemic.
BSA | The Software Alliance (www.bsa.org) is the leading advocate for the global software industry before governments and in the international marketplace. Its members are among the world’s most innovative companies, creating software solutions that spark the economy and improve modern life.
With headquarters in Washington, DC, and operations in more than 30 countries, BSA pioneers compliance programs that promote legal software use and advocates for public policies that foster technology innovation and drive growth in the digital economy.
