WHAT: Orange Business Services is launching a new webinar series to help enterprises navigate the business and technology challenges brought on by the COVID-19 pandemic and beyond. Participants will include solution experts and industry leads from both Orange Silicon Valley and Orange Business Services, along with interviews with partners Aruba, Checkpoint, and Cisco, as well as advisory firm ISG. Together they will offer insights on creating resilient organizations for the next normal that lies ahead.
WHEN: The webinar series will run from June 23rd through August 26th. Episodes will examine the impact of the current pandemic across industries and technologies with perspectives on how digital innovation can elevate businesses. Remote work, healthcare, education, security, retail, supply chains, connectivity, and entertainment are some of the topics on the schedule.
WHY: The COVID-19 pandemic forced over a third of the global population into lockdown, causing the largest global recession in history.
