According to research, organizations are expected to spend more on IT resources with notable increases in security spending. The data has found that information security spending grew more common by 28%, compared to 15% in March.

Meanwhile, organizations are spending more on communication and collaboration technologies (50%), employee devices and services (43%), information security tools (42%), and network capacity (38%).

At the same time, companies aren’t in a rush to head back to workplaces. Nevertheless, about 19% of businesses aim to have employees return to offices as soon as local regulations allow. 25% of them will wait a month or more whereas another 24% haven’t yet determined any timeline.

As organizations are heading back to the office in the wake of COVID-19, it is important to quantify what changes materialized during these past few months as a potential indication for the future of work.
