The 2020 IT Economic Impact Study was conducted by Helix Market Research on behalf of Windward Consulting Group on May 18, 2020. Windward’s CEO Sean McDermott wished to gain a better understanding of how other IT Leaders were steering their ship in the wake of the global pandemic which still holds us tightly in its grip.

Sean spoke to other C-Suite executives in the IT space and was getting disparate answers. He decided to partner with Helix Market Research to conduct a one-of-a-kind study to get inside the heads of Fortune 1000 leaders and see what their priorities are, where they planned to make sweeping changes, and where they were holding steady. In essence, he wanted to see the changes IT leaders were making to go Windward and where they are steering their ships.

In our final release of the research data from The 2020 COVID-19 IT Economic Impact Study we will share all of the results, discuss what this will mean for the IT industry as a whole, and how IT leaders can use this information to create strategic advantage.
