Surveys Say There's A New Normal in the Electronics Industry

"2020 Trends in Electronics Sourcing" report dives deep into the ways that COVID-19 has impacted the global supply chain, and the ramifications that has had on the engineering community.

 

In this episode of the Embedded Insiders, Brandon and Rich continue to probe the impact that COVID-19 is having on the electronics industry today and it’s implications for the future.

They begin with a review of recent research published by ByteSnap, “Navigating COVID-19: The New Normal,” which takes a snapshot survey of U.K.-based electronics professionals. Are the somewhat optimistic results of this survey indicative of the global tech sector?

Later, Brandon and Rich are joined by Richard Barnett, CMO of SupplyFrame. His company’s “2020 Trends in Electronics Sourcing” report dives deep into the ways that COVID-19 has impacted the global supply chain, and the ramifications that has had on the engineering community. So, what recourse do organizations have to recover from and/or mitigate the risk of such phenomenon? According to Barnett, the answer lies in closer relationships between internal and external partners.

Tune in.
