On-line Presentation


This IDC Survey provides a fresh standpoint on the business and ICT market outlook of manufacturers in the Middle East. It presents the results of IDC's Digital Transformation CIO Survey, conducted in the Middle East in late 2020. This survey looked at CIOs' perspectives on 2021 ICT budgets and respective shifts, digital initiatives, and technology focus areas, as well as gauging the impact of COVID-19 on manufacturing organizations in the region.

"The trade value chain in the Middle East underwent disruptive changes during the COVID-19 pandemic. Consumer demand fluctuated significantly, and the supply chain was considerably disrupted. Organizations suddenly had to implement and adhere to work-from-home protocols. In adapting to the situation and preparing for the next normal, manufacturing organizations have been rapidly implementing digital technologies on which to build long-term resiliency." — Research Manager Eman Elshewy, IDC Egypt
