Remote Developers: Fad or Future?

The Gig Economy is changing how people work and where they work. In particular, software developers are choosing to work from home and work for themselves to have the most flexibility and the most control over their careers.

The panel discusses the impact remote workers have had on their IT operations. Are remote workers more productive than their in-house counterparts? Are IT groups encouraging this trend and do they see it continuing? How do in-house employees perceive the value of remote staffing?
