For New Zealand companies, finding the ‘new normal’ way of working and doing business with customers during and post COVID-19 continues to be top priority.
Connecting brands with IT.
New Zealand is generally considered to have been one of the nations that handled the disruption of COVID-19 the best. That’s not to say that it hasn’t had an impact – real GDP in New Zealand will fall by 4.3 per cent in 2020-21, but the country is well poised to recover, with projected real GDP growth of 5.7 per cent in 2021-22.
Events of 2020 have proven to be transformative to businesses, how they operate, and how they think about everything from their supply lines to staff health, through to resilience and continuity. In the eyes of many CIOs, 2020 galvanised the need to transform the business environment, and to shift to become driven by digital, agile, and innovative.
The need to adapt to emerging business continuity challenges continues to drive greater demand for edge computing. This is opening new opportunities for partners to assist their customers in building resiliency and strategically restructuring their businesses, according to global leader in IT infrastructure, power and cooling, APC by Schneider Electric.
