Without wishing to state the obvious, 2020 has been a challenging year. With US political tension, US/ China economic conflict, Brexit, and the commercial and emotional impact of Covid-19, it has been tough. Many organisations have classified the effect of the pandemic as posing either a severe or having a significant impact on their business.
In a recent CFO survey by Deloitte, 57% of respondents said their focus was on reducing costs and increasing cash flow to help mitigate the impact of a changing business landscape. During the pandemic businesses have focussed on investments in organisational and business process, improvements across both software and data, and general IT. Unsurprisingly that focus looks set to continue during 2021 ensuring businesses will be fit for purpose as the ‘new normal’ emerges.
