LONDONJune 2, 2020 — CIOs and tech leaders in Europe are facing an uncertain and rapidly deteriorating economic outlook as a result of COVID-19. With shrinking tech budgets and spending on software, tech outsourcing, and tech staff declining across all industries, organisations need to reassess their priorities and embrace adaptiveness in these times of constant change. To guide business leaders on how to navigate this change, Forrester today announced a complimentary webcast series, Adapt To Win: The Future Of Technology In EMEA, from 8–10 June 2020.

The series will feature webinars, complimentary guides, and research reports focused on the current European business climate; how this will evolve; and how businesses can proactively adapt to changing market forces. Forrester analysts will share their perspectives and provide technology leaders in EMEA with the tools and insights they need to build the capabilities of an adaptive enterprise.

“The new ‘normal’ will be framed by continuous change as European businesses enter the next phase of this global pandemic,” said Forrester VP and Research Director Pascal Matzke. “We will not only see customers be more cautious with their spending, but we will have a workforce that has seen the possibilities and limitations of working remotely. To recover from COVID-19 and beyond, smart businesses will have to put technology at the centre of their strategies to constantly adapt to the continuously changing world — not just to survive but to thrive.”
