Since the global health crisis began, organizations we work with have told us, “We need to maintain stability while reducing costs.” In fact, a survey of 1,000 North American IT executives found 1 in 5 of those surveyed have already paused IT deployments and new projects.
While this requirement for cost efficiency isn’t new, it has taken on a new sense of urgency. With the right approach and the right guidance, however, organizations can overcome the challenges presented by new budget pressures and start on the path to a robust recovery.
