The COVID-19 crisis is having a profound effect on people and organizations around the world, particularly CIOs. Businesses are being forced to find different ways to work and technology is at the heart of these efforts. Technologies that we take for granted under normal circumstances — such as, remote work infrastructure, associated security requirements, and collaboration tools — are all in high demand for organizations as they quickly and strategically find ways to provision their workforce.

Many technology providers are offering to help in the crisis. Some are providing free product upgrades, pertinent solutions for a specified time period and other services in order to help their customers and/or the world at large pivot to a new way of working. Some are offering financial assistance in the form of grants and access to their services.

This Excel file contains a curated list of these providers, giving you easy access to products and services that may be available to your organization during this time. The list will be periodically updated as vendors announce or alter their offerings.
