Modern workplaces for secure remote work need of the hour: HP CEONew Delhi, Oct 15 (IANS) As large enterprises and small and medium businesses (SMBs) in India and elsewhere hit the refresh button in the pandemic times, the onus is on tech companies to keep their customers secure and provide them modern devices that make their lives easy as they work from home, HP President and CEO Enrique Lores said on Thursday.

Responding to an IANS question, Lores stressed on the fact that digital transformation has entered top gear as organisations realise the importance or remote learning with modern workplaces that can be set up right at home premises.

“I think the conversation we’re having with most of our clients is about acceleration and transformation. The digital transformation we have seen during the last few months is something we saw happening in the timeframe of two to three years in the pre-Covid era,” Lores told IANS during the virtual ‘HP Innovation Summit 2020′.

He said that the adoption to digital technologies is something not limited to large corporations only as more and more SMBs are on the path to realise their digital dreams and embrace state-of-the-art, secure workplaces.

“We tell our customers how they can work remotely in a secure way, to use the technology in ways that were not possible before. HP Inc is leading the digital transformation journey for enterprises of all sizes,” Lores emphasised.

SMBs account for 97 per cent of all businesses in Asia-Pacific and employ over half of the workforce.

“We are witnessing the dawn of a new age, where our cyber and physical worlds converge to create amazing new opportunities,” Lores said at the company’s ‘Reinvent 2020′ virtual conference last month.

“This is a defining moment for each of us, our companies and our industry,” he told partners.

The Covid-19 pandemic “has accelerated trends such as workforce mobility, digital education and the rise of the subscription economy. Even in our core PC and print businesses, people expect more personalized solutions,” Lores said.
