The COVID-19 pandemic radically disrupted every aspect of life, including education. Remote learning experiences implemented by schools and universities during the pandemic revealed challenges, including equity, access, and capacity. As quarantine orders end, school systems around the world are examining the best ways to meet on campuses and connect with students remotely. Schools and universities are exploring different educational models to meet the needs of their students.

Going forward, Hybrid learning is going to stay, the new, cloud-first operating system- Windows 11 SE, built for Education. The affordable and simple way to help make learning accessible to every student.

We would like to extend a heartfelt thanks to all those who have attended the first of it's kind Hybrid event which was held on 26th November'21, Friday.

I appreciate your ideas and suggestions contributed immensely during various sessions. I am encouraged by the speeches, presentations and anticipate the results will please the partners in the country. The outcome of the event is, 70% of IT companies are trying to make the hybrid model work effectively and many companies in IT and allied industries will continue to work in a hybrid model and grow at a rapid pace as they have adapted to the hybrid set-up quickly,

I once again Thank you!! We appreciate your continued support and time spent speaking with us during the event. We will keep you posted about our next initiatives for growth and welfare of the partners and VARs in the country. For those who were unable to attend, we missed you.

We look forward to celebrating our 11th edition of the Brand Book with you next year! Stay tuned for more information on the latest trends and technologies.
