IT Spending Forecast, 3Q20: Technology Trends Accelerated by COVID

| 1 hour

The public health interventions that countries imposed to control the spread of COVID-19 devastated global IT spend. Industries facing prolonged lockdowns, such as entertainment and air transport, are cutting total IT spending by more than 30 percent in 2020. However, some technologies and IT trends accelerated in both adoption and spending. COVID-19 actually brings the future forward. This complimentary webinar breaks down the global IT spending of both enterprises and consumers, and delves into three trends accelerated by COVID: Digital acceleration, hyperautomation, and remote work.
