Philippine Telegraph and Telephone Corp. said over the weekend it teamed up with US-based IT solutions provider Status Pros to enable companies to work and manage the workforce from anywhere or outside their traditional office amid the global pandemic. “As a telco and IT company, PT&T is one with the industry in fully embracing this digital transformation of work, and thru VDI [Virtual Desktop Instances] technology, we are able to assist companies in ensuring that technology extends well beyond the confines of a traditional office,” said PT&T president and chief executive James Velasquez. “But we must emphasize that this is not a pivot to circumvent the realities of the current situation, rather, the pandemic merely accelerated what some are already into: working from anywhere,” he said.
