Rise of Remote Work
It will be almost 2 years since the coronavirus epidemic started, and in this process, the number of companies working entirely from home or hybrid has increased significantly. This, of course, causes us to find fewer opportunities for face-to-face communication. On the other hand, collaboration tools such as Zoom, MS Office and Teams are becoming more and more important. The good news: these tools are really affordable and easy to use. Therefore, all kinds of businesses can benefit from them.

This year, companies will show even more demand for SaaS solutions, accounting software and similar offerings from cloud suppliers. As interest in cloud-based services grows, so does the need for people who can manage these systems efficiently. Therefore, the management of cloud-based solutions will play a major role in project management.
