Our view on "Reflection of the impact of COVID-19 on digital market demands"

Cloud services are more in demand than ever. Video conferencing and remote collaboration are at the pinnacle of use more than ever as managers strive to maintain themselves and the productive workforce. Also, companies have a new assessment of cloud scalability and sustainability. The tech industry has helped people and companies stay connected, and in many cases, stay in business. The decisions companies make today can help them recover from the effects of COVID-19. Technology companies have the opportunity to come out stronger, more resilient and more innovative. And because technology has changed the way every industry works, the decisions that tech developers make today can help companies in every industry recover and also thrive. We are already seeing countless ways in which technology has grown to help people and industries survive various catastrophic situations. Jobs are surviving thanks to work away from home. The human connection continues thanks to video chat. Physicians and health professionals can continue their work virtually (and safely) some of the essential services. Even personal trainers are able to keep their clients healthy and active thanks to the technology sector. Other areas that would see an impact include e-learning, online education and e-government. As shoppers begin to isolate themselves and avoid crowded areas, the clear winner is the e-commerce sector, with digital payments taking over much faster than physical payment options. The main reason for the growth of the economy for this industry is the increased demand for software and social media platforms such as Google Hangouts, Video Call WhatsApp, Zoom, Microsoft Teams, etc. The economy will also thrive because, during these crises, people realized the importance of the internet and technology as this is helping us stay safe and help communicate between doctors and the public. In the world war on coronavirus (COVID-19), technology has a major task for the effective implementation of preventive measures and new generation technologies are at the forefront of governments as the biggest supporter. Intelligent and useful solutions are being developed every day more and more to reduce the rate of epidemic spread and make the world safer than it was a few months ago. Various countries around the world are trying to tackle the pandemic by developing their digital infrastructure and engineering capabilities and mitigating the spread of COVID-19 with community-led communication technology. Although the virus can spread quickly, information and hope spread faster thanks to our technology-enabled world. Given these facts, each of us will necessarily have to open up to learning new technologies, adapt to the new lifestyle, be ready and open to innovation and trend, and try to develop the company of its in digital format, necessarily.
