This IDC Market Perspective takes a look at recent economic disruptions and how past lessons may help us predict some of the possible outcomes during the recovery from the disruption being caused by the COVID-19 pandemic. "History tells us that the IT industry responds to economic disruption in both short-term (cost-cutting) and long-term (technology adoption shifts) ways. There is no reason to believe this disruption will not follow suit, and we can expect the industry to come out of this event different than it was in January 2020," said Al Gillen, GVP, Software Development and Open Source, IDC.
