COVID-19: The impact of the pandemic for Tech User Organisations

Thank you for participating in TechMarketView's COVID-19 impact research survey. Our survey (listed below) can be completed in less than a couple of minutes, and, we would welcome your contribution by close of business Thursday 30th April.

We have compiled this survey to gather as much insight as we can on the potential impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on Tech User Organisations.

We want to know how that view varies depending on the type of business you work for, or the type of role you undertake.

By gathering views from as many of you as possible, we will be able to get a comprehensive view of how the pandemic may impact the UK Tech market over the next few years. The TechMarketView analyst team is talking with ICT suppliers and end users of technology on a daily basis. We hear voices of optimism. We hear voices of pessimism. As we enter our forecasting period (ahead of the publication of our series of Market Trends & Forecasts reports, within our subscription research streams), the results of this survey will help us improve our understanding of where the opportunities and threats lie.  

We will publish the results in a special report over the next few weeks. You should keep an eye out on UKHotViews, where we will feature some of the highlights. In addition, the detailed report will be made available to participants of the survey and TechMarketView research subscription clients. If you are not a subscriber to TechMarketView’s research services, and haven’t participated in the survey, the report will also be available to purchase.

This survey is completely confidential. All results published will be aggregated and anonymised so no individual responses can be identified. A copy of our Privacy Policy can be found here.

​If you would like any further information about the research then please email info@techmarketview.com

​Many thanks for your participation.
