How COVID will impact the future of Technology?

With the Union Budget 2021 announced, electronics giant Lenovo India revisits some of its 2020 technology predictions from pre-pandemic to see how they’ve evolved, and predict COVID-19’s effect on (re)emerging technologies and the biggest trends set to take a centre stage into 2021 and beyond.

The pandemic has triggered unprecedented disruptions in work, school, social connections, and many industries from healthcare to entertainment. It has also accelerated digital transformation into warp speed in 2020, creating radical shifts in the new “everything-from-home” environment. The year 2020 was all about transitioning to the ‘Work from Home’ scenario. While remote working existed in parts even before the pandemic, the last few months have taught us that it’s possible to work remotely. In a white-collar work environment, the productivity question will always be up for debate, but we have seen that it can be efficient if you have the right IT infrastructure and collaboration tools. The pandemic has also resulted in a lot of new technology trends coming up. Here are a few Technology predictions by Lenovo for the year 2021:

“There are some jobs that cannot be done remotely (like retail sales) and there are some tasks that are better done face-to-face. Hence, I think the future of work is going to be a hybrid of remote working and working from the office. The work/learn-from-anywhere culture will prompt  companies to enhance their technological infrastructure according to the new age workforce. The six pillars of the Union Budget 2021 add enormous value to the economic relief post the pandemic issues and paint a futuristic picture for the new year. It has managed to address some of the key issues around Atmanirbhar Bharat, education and Digital India that presents significant business opportunities for global corporates such as Lenovo. With the PLI scheme announced along with the increased focus on ‘Make in India’ in this budget, we are confident that it will encourage local manufacturing, and further bolster the local PC market. Lenovo will also support the government in enriching India’s economy, by boosting digital infrastructure in the field of education and additional focus on promoting inclusive development. The national education policy also creates an opportunity to build the Indian EdTech ecosystem to make it best across the globe for research & innovation, and empowers the citizens to scale up their skills.”
