As Omdia analysts we are privy to regular press releases from vendors and service providers. Lately, we’ve noted that many of these press releases relate to “free stuff” aimed at helping with the challenges presented by COVID-19.
We have collated as much as we can to help anyone and everyone with what we know is available out there. Please note, this list isn't exhaustive and is based largely on the insights our analysts have gathered from interactions over recent weeks. We will be updating this list frequently, whenever new offers come to light. The list can be seen here.
Although classed as free, it should be noted that these solutions still have an impact on IT resources in terms of management and administration. Subsequently, due diligence should be taken, and an assessment made in terms of the investment required in adopting said services such as: compliance, data security and sovereignty, device support, etc., alongside the potential long-term implications.
As a technology vendor or service provider, if you feel you have a product/service that may help – it must be free and with no strings attached – please do get in touch at [email protected] Thank you!
Keep safe and well,
