Vartan, thank you for your comment. Have just checked the latest news. It has been announced Disney is going to test facial recognition in theme parks in Orlando starting from April. The primary objective, as was announced, it to make experience of visitors as much contactless as possible.

Great article, Tim. I loved the ideas of Rolando. It really looks like the right time for pivoting and introducing value-added services. Corporate clients and community engagement can be beneficial and prospective avenues for expansion. When we back to normal, many people would want more engaging opportunities and activities. So why not CoachUp to pivot to TeamUp or ChallengeUp, huh?

Very interesting case, thank you. Never heard about Anaplan, so good to know now. I was always thinking the software types and clouds are coming in and out, but Excel will be always there. Now looks like Anaplan has everything for individual and organizational planning, not only for finance but across many functions. I am wondering how much it is friendly with existing on-premise solutions that captures actual performance data such as ERP solutions. Will explore Anaplan in more detail.

On February 11, 2021, Almas Kaptagayev commented on How Zoom Won the Pandemic :

At the beginning of that crazy year, I personally do not even remember how I downloaded and started using Zoom. I do not even remember what occasion made me download it. Now I realize that it was so smooth and organic, any other use of tools (Teams, Google) seems like an exception, whereas Zoom becomes a standard tool for communications. However, I would love to have more filtering features (like blurring) in Zoom but maybe I am just a bad lazy non-educated user. 🙂

Very valid point, Cristina, thank you. Data privacy and security is definitely is the key aspect they will need to think about. While the customer base is growing, it will be an even more attractive target for phishing and hacking attempts.
