IT & Business Services Report 2H2020

This year, enterprises – be they startups, publicly-listed, or even governmental agencies – have been forced to rapidly digitise their products, processes and services. Lockdown measures around the world have accelerated the move to digital. For instance, working from home has required better IT capabilities, whether in-house or outsourced. In some cases, IT departments have had to move entire companies off-site.

To enable this, IT services firms and departments are working with virtualisation tools and integration with other systems, software and platforms. They are also working with the cloud for efficiency in remote working and corporate agility.

The report looks into the sectors Integration Services, Tech Services & Support and IT Outsourced Services and includes:

  • Trends and analysis of deal activity
