Watch Video


The global COVID-19 outbreak has brought the world to an almost complete standstill. The impact on the Middle East, Turkey, and Africa (META) region has been significant, and the situation continues to evolve. The ICT industry is feeling the effects as customers – whether consumers, governments, or businesses – face unprecedented disruption. IDC is keeping a close eye on these changing ICT market trends, both worldwide and across the region.

This webinar will focus specifically on COVID-19's impact on the META ICT industry and the market changes we can expect to see over the coming months. The session will examine both the economic and ICT market outlook, as well as the anticipated impact on key technology sub-markets and verticals. It will showcase CIO perspectives and responses, while also outlining the emerging opportunities that tech vendors and providers can explore as they look to help their customers navigate these uncertain times.
