IDC has conducted written interviews with more than 30 industry CXOs in China. This report summarizes these CXOs' core views, including how the COVID-19 outbreak affects their businesses, the role and value of IT during the fight against the COVID-19 epidemic, and new digital transformation measures they will adopt to support better corporate development after the COVID-19 epidemic. The report also presents key conclusions and recommended actions.

"Digital transformation has become a core strategy of enterprises. IT is not something that can be done overnight but is a journey of at least 10 years. Achieving large-scale and faster innovation has become the core of digital transformation today. The COVID-19 outbreak has fully embodied the value of IT and digital transformation. Corporate CXOs should take full advantage of this opportunity to turn the crisis into business opportunity, accelerate the promotion and implementation of new digital transformation strategies, and support enterprises to look for breakthroughs and innovative spots in the business to achieve a healthy and sustainable corporate development after the epidemic is over," says Lianfeng Wu, VP and chief research analyst, IDC China.
