This IDC Market Perspective examines the trends impacting the enterprise infrastructure market in Sub-Saharan Africa (Nigeria, Kenya, and South Africa). It studies the impact of COVID-19 on ongoing investments in IT infrastructure and responses from enterprises. It examines emerging technologies that will enable enterprises to modernize their IT infrastructure.
"The COVID-19 pandemic had a negative impact on overall spending on enterprise infrastructure in Sub-Saharan Africa. Many organizations were impacted by disruptions in supply chains and the weakened economic environment. While this impact was significant, businesses are making more strategic initiatives focused on business continuity and long-term digital resilience. Recovery in the enterprise infrastructure market should be realized as organizations respond to the changing customer requirements and as uptake of emerging technologies gains traction." — Research Analyst Linda Ngenoh, IDC EMEA
