Tech Companies Case Study: Major Challenges and How Remote Working Can Help Them 1000 466 Leandro Eclipse

The emergence of technology brought many opportunities for businesses to prosper. Modern technology solved so many problems like instant communication, information technology, deeper data analysis, etc. 

Tech companies provide a wide array of services ranging from mobile applications, database management, social media channels, and more. It’s also present in almost all industries like healthcare, insurance, agriculture, and the list goes on.

And it doesn’t stop there! The world continues to evolve, and we are yet to see the best advancements in technology moving forward.

But there’s a lot of room for improvement in Australia’s tech industry. According to the economic advisory group AlphaBeta, the current trajectory of the industry is one of the worst-performing in the OECDs. It contributes around $83 Billion USD to the GDP and second last after Mexico.

But as a silver lining, it can be a source of GDP growth if cultivated at the same rate as the U.S., U.K., and Japan. 

Challenges Faced by Tech Companies

But this fast-paced evolution is a double-edged sword. There are opportunities but looming challenges for tech companies every day. Some of which are:

 

Data-Security-Cloud-Management-and-Privacy

Data Security, Cloud Management, and Privacy

Tech companies should be wary of data security and privacy issues that can be used maliciously. Many companies faced PR nightmares because of the mishandling of data privacy like Facebook’s Cambridge Analytica Scandal. Data privacy is a delicate aspect that all tech companies need to handle carefully.

 

Market-Relevance-and-Branding

Market Relevance and Branding

Ultimately, every business needs income to survive. Even with the best products and services on hand, a tech company needs to market themselves and strengthen their brand. 

They have to continuously show the market relevance of their products and services. It can be through different social media platforms or SEO optimized pages to get more sales.

 

Innovation

Lastly, many tech companies grow quickly. But they die down because they lack innovation. More and more problems are yet to be solved. And new and better solutions pop-up every once in a while. 

So tech companies need to be updated in their niche and explore other niches as well to provide better service. The good thing is, if they innovate, they thrive even further.

 

Remote-Working-Staff-as-a-Solution

Remote Working Staff as a Solution

It’s evident that a fully remote team or a hybrid (both remote workers and office-based) team can be productive for your business.

Tech companies are in the best position to take advantage of a remote working setup. Twitter announced that its team would permanently work-from-home while Facebook is also preparing for the same setup.

Our homegrown tech giant Atlassian has closed down their Sydney offices due to COVID. But prior to this, they have started the remote working movement. They are hiring people outside Sydney to tap into a greater pool of quality talent at a potentially lower price.

And some of these Remote workers are currently outsourced in the Philippines.
