A new survey from ZK Research shows that COVID-19 is driving additional IT spending and increasing the priority for SD-WAN investments. In fact, the data shows that almost half of surveyed employers (47%) have increased spending on technology in general as a result of the pandemic. And, another 45% expect to increase technology spending even more once the stay-at-home orders are lifted and employees start returning to the workplace. Where will that spending go specifically, and how will it be prioritized?

While the world is still in the middle of the COVID-19 pandemic, the reality is that most IT organizations are starting to think about post-pandemic planning. Zeus Kerravala, Principal Analyst at ZK Research, conducted a survey that investigates IT strategies and the impact of COVID-19 on technology budgets. Don’t miss this webinar replay, where Zeus and I take attendees through the survey results, turning data into IT advice.

We address the shift to work-from-anywhere business models, the challenge companies face, and new IT priorities in today’s business landscape. In evaluating the results of the survey, Zeus explains how the value of the network has increased as organizations are more reliant on it to connect employees, applications, and devices. Together, we show you how IT leaders are putting more emphasis on network evolution, WAN modernization, and SD-WAN deployments.

Attendees will learn:

  • How COVID-19 has changed IT spending, security and the role of the network
  • Challenges companies face as they shift from work-from-home to work-from-anywhere
  • How SD-WAN helps overcome challenges in the new business environment
