Industry Clouds and the Pandemic: What Worked and What Didn't in the Fight Against COVID-19

Industry Clouds and the Pandemic: What Worked and What Didn't in the Fight Against COVID-19

This IDC Market Perspective reviews industry clouds' (ICs') role in the response to the COVID-19 pandemic and provides guidance for technology suppliers and professional services providers that participate or consider building or joining industry clouds. As industry clouds become a preferred structure for organizations working together on industry-specific solutions, pandemic-born industry clouds and their various business and participation models provide valuable lessons for new entrants, highlighting ICs' versatility, as well as their advantages and challenges, especially under the stressful and time-sensitive conditions of the crisis."The global pandemic and the resulting economic downturn put the resiliency of all types of organizations in many industries to the test. It is telling that many of them turned to the adaptive and collaborative structures of industry clouds to respond to the crisis. And, as businesses look to turn this crisis into a post-pandemic opportunity, they can again use industry clouds to expand their operational capabilities and leverage their assets in new and innovative ways," said Nadia Ballard, research manager, Industry Clouds and SaaS at IDC.
