Why Automation is the DNA of APAC Enterprises in a Post-COVID World

To maintain business continuity and sustainable growth during the COVID-19 pandemic, leading enterprises in Asia Pacific (APAC) are investing heavily in digital transformation. According to market research company IDC, Information Communications and Technology Spending (ICT) spending in Asia is forecasted to reach $950 billion in 2021, which is a 7.1% increase from 2020.

In addition, despite a general decline in spending due to the pandemic, demand for technology that directly impacts business continuity — such as task automation and cloud computing — remained strong.
