The pandemic has put the world into an altered state of commerce, as more business is conducted virtually. While the pandemic may have altered the society social norms, it hasn't completely stopped businesses. IDC continues to field the COVID-19 Impact on IT Spending Survey every two weeks. The survey brings forward the spending profiles of organizations globally. Our most recent study for this content is from IDC's COVID-19 Impact on IT Spending Survey, conducted May 21–28, 2020.
"Organizations are starting to shift their focus from business continuity to the economic slowdown, with some even moving into the areas of return to growth and the next normal. The most digitally fit are finding cloud helps them traverse the decline. Organizations are now understanding the value of cloud in business," says Mickey North Rizza, program VP, Enterprise Applications and Digital Commerce at IDC.
