COVID-19 Impact on IT Infrastructure Equipment - Thematic Research
The COVID-19 outbreak has now spread across the world, leaving a trail of destruction in its wake. This report discusses the impact of the virus on leading companies in the IT infrastructure equipment sector.

Despite uncertainty over whether it could support remote working at scale, IT infrastructure coped well in the first stage of the crisis. However, with countries only coming out of lockdown in stages, there will be a long-term need for IT infrastructure - data centers, cloud IT, and networking - to support changing business practices.
