If necessity is truly the mother of invention, then a pandemic might be the mother of transformation. This isn’t meant to make light of COVID 19 – the virus has taken countless lives and sunk the worldwide economy. Leaders, both in government and business, have scrambled to ensure that life continues to be as “normal” as possible while protecting our health and safety.

In the business world, and especially with the technology sector, terminology seems to change as fast as your Twitter feed. Even for the savviest of us, it’s often hard to keep up with the latest acronyms and industry lingo. Take “call centers”.
