Business Insider: Most startups won't cut employee salaries if they move to cheaper cities, but many will, a Lightspeed survey finds

Summary List Placement In the first quarter, Lightspeed Venture Partners ran a survey of 328 companies, mostly early-stage startups, to figure out when business will return to normal. It reported that half of companies polled will let employees decide when they want to go back to the office, and that some form of remote work is the "new normal" for about 90% of companies. One of the more interesting findings was on the topic of salaries. "The ability to work from anywhere has inspired some employees to leave expensive tech hubs and settle in areas with a lower cost of living," Lightspeed talent partner Luke Beseda, who led the companies survey, wrote in a blog post . The migration has led some companies like Facebook, Microsoft, and Stripe to adjust salaries for those employees. But Lightspeed's survey suggest they're in the minority, which is good news for workers settling in suburban zip codes. The survey asked, "How do employee salaries change if they move to a new region?" 50% said "salaries stay at the original rate" 21% said "salary is adjusted to local rate" 17% said "salary is frozen at original rate until it matches local rate" 8% said they're undecided 4% did not answer the question The survey results suggest that most tech workers fleeing cities don't have to worry about pay cuts, although some might not be getting raises until the standard pay for someone local in the position catches up to their salary. "This will likely result in employees optimizing for cost living," Beseda said. [more....]

Business Insider: IBM's cloud head lays out the tech giant's future plans and the biggest opportunities for increasing adoption of the public cloud on Wall Street

Summary List Placement IBM's cloud is ready for primetime. The tech giant's cloud offering announced a wide release of its IBM Cloud for Financial Services on Wednesday. Built for banks and other financial institutions, the IBM Cloud has standardized compliance, security, and confidential computing tools alongside more traditional cloud tech. It also puts the tech giant in position to capitalize on what Howard Boville, the head of IBM's hybrid cloud, previously told Insider was a $1 trillion market for cloud adoption within enterprise-sized firms. Now, IBM's "really moving at a much quicker pace in terms of meeting the specific needs of the marketplaces that we're facing into," Boville recently told Insider. And while building out the foundation of a cloud offering is one step in the battle to compete with the likes of Amazon Web Services, Microsoft Azure, and Google Cloud, that's only half the battle. It's the tools built around the cloud that really set it apart, Boville said. "There's no real inherent competitive advantage of building a cloud architecture. [more....]

Business Insider: Microsoft is pushing back its earliest office reopening date to September to give 'flexibility for employees to make summer plans' (MSFT)

Summary List Placement Microsoft is pushing back its earliest possible date for when employees can return to the office without health and safety restrictions to September from July, Insider has learned. "We believe this date will afford additional flexibility for employees to make summer plans, and we'll continue to keep you updated if the date moves out," Microsoft executive vice president Kurt DelBene told employees in an email viewed by Insider. September 7 is the earliest possible date Microsoft offices will move to what the firm calls "Stage 6," which is when most health and safety restrictions can be removed because COVID-10 is "no longer a significant burden on a country/region," DelBene wrote. Microsoft started giving employees the option to return to the office if they wanted starting March 29 , but it will not be required (except for essential workers) until Stage 6 is reached. Microsoft has been "continually monitoring conditions" in its US-based offices, DelBene wrote, which has influenced the decision to move the earliest possible date back form July 6, which it had announced last fall.

Business Insider: ENTERPRISE SECURITY IN THE CORONAVIRUS PANDEMIC ERA: How to support remote work while securing the distributed enterprise through the Zero Trust security model

Summary List Placement A staggering number of employees have moved to a new mode of remote work in 2020, kicking off a significant andlasting transformation of the workplace?one that will require a different approach to enterprise security. Starting in February, the first outbreaks of the coronavirus pandemic resulted in China shutting down, followed by other countries from March onward. Companies had to quickly pivot to enabling remote work where possible and crafting new work-from-home (WFH) policies, many of which will remain in effect into 2021 and beyond. Hackers have rapidly moved to target remote workers and adjusted their tactics to take advantage of the move to WFH. IT departments are reacting to the rapid move to WFH by adding network, virtual private networks (VPNs), and firewall capacity to keep up with user demand?but the road has been bumpy. These technologies have been around for years, and will still be in use for years to come, but they have many shortcomings in terms of cost and performance that will require the use of newer, cloud-based technologies.
