COVID-19 Impact on IT Buyer Sentiment Across European Vertical Sectors, Wave 2: End of April 2020
This IDC Survey focuses on European IT buyers' reaction to the COVID-19 pandemic. It analyzes the expected impact of the pandemic on the revenue, IT spending, technology investments, and digital transformation (DX) projects of European end-user companies in 2Q20 and 2020, providing IT vendors with actionable insights on how to face the radical changes taking place.
The presentation is based on the results of the IDC European IT Buyer Sentiment Survey, involving more than 200 organizations across five European subregions (i.e., the U.K., France, Germany, the Nordics, and Russia) and five vertical sectors (i.e., public sector, financial services, manufacturing/utilities, retail/wholesale/transportation, and telecom/media/business services). The survey comprises six consecutive waves running every two weeks from March 23 to June 8, 2020. Reports leveraging the survey data will be published monthly till the end of June. The current report focuses on the results of Wave 2 (April 6-13), comparing them with the results of Wave 1 (March 23-27) to follow the evolution of buyer sentiment between the first two waves of the survey.
