We are looking for partner feedback to help us understand what’s happening in your business during the pandemic.

We are living in unprecedented times. Like nearly every industry, the channel is going through a paradigm shift due to the impact of COVID-19. The economic downturn and uncertainty over the global pandemic are pushing entire sectors to shift from office to remote work. This has caused thousands of businesses to re-evaluate 2020 budget forecasts, and has forced employers to make hard decisions about how much of their own workforce they can continue to support at pre-COVID levels.

We are hearing a range of responses from partners, with some SMBs having to take measures such as furloughing employees or significantly cutting hours and others watching their business increase drastically as the economy shifts to a remote work norm. We want to drill down into what’s on the minds and balance sheets of our readers and community members.

That’s why today, Channel Partners and Channel Futures launched a new survey, “Channel in Crisis: How Partners are Navigating COVID-19.” The survey looks at the impact of COVID-19 and examines other factors such as:

  • Trends by company size and location, including if business has picked up or slowed down.
  • The status of cloud migrations among customers.
  • The impact of shadow IT.
  • Security
  • Projected revenue streams.

In order to continue to offer the most relevant industry insights and thought leadership, we need your input. We encourage you to take 10 minutes to give us your feedback.
