Anupam Govil, Partner and Digital practice lead with Avasant, congratulated the winners noting, “The need for digital capabilities has been felt like never before as the COVID-19 pandemic restricts business activities in the physical world. Companies that are more digitally mature have been able to overcome the disruptions posed by this crisis and are in a much better position to address the new opportunities coming out of it. As enterprises prepare for the new normal, these innovative service providers can help them accelerate their digital transformation, especially in the areas of hybrid cloud, unified communications, digital workplace, intelligent automation, and cybersecurity.”
The Digital Masters 2020 RadarView™ report is the culmination of our RadarView research program in 2019-20 to address the need of enterprises to understand the larger tech-enabled transformation imperative, and to identify implementation services providers that can support initiatives that span multiple technologies. This report also highlights how the COVID-19 outbreak has driven enterprises to reprioritize their digital investments and redefined client/vendor relationships.
Some of the key findings from the report include:
- Enterprises worldwide suffered substantial economic and social impact due to COVID-19, from which they may take years to recover.
- Many enterprises have been forced to make new investments due to COVID-19. Those that were digitally immature and slow to respond to the changing requirements for business continuity are facing an existential threat.
- Enterprises’ digital investments will accelerate and will continue to grow in the post-COVID-19 era. Several technology areas including hybrid cloud, advanced networks, intelligent automation, cybersecurity and AI will grow at even faster rate.
- Digital Masters have helped enterprises in managing disruptions and minimizing their impact. The masters are also creating solutions to help companies recover from the impact in the mid-term and be future-ready in the long term.
“It is commendable that these Digital Masters have been able to help their clients minimize operational disruption, even though the providers themselves have been severely impacted. Their solutions for remote workforce, end-point security, and their COVID-specific digital offerings have been especially well received,” said Akshay Khanna, Partner with Avasant. “Clients know they need digital-driven innovation to stay ahead of the competition. As they start new large-scale digital projects, we expect them to collaborate even more with these Digital Masters.”
