CompTIA launches interactive forum to serve tech community

An interactive online forum has been launched to help technology companies, professionals and government agencies weather out the COVID-19 crisis.

The COVID-19 Resources Forum — devised by IT trade association CompTIA — will let users share valuable information, resources and best practices on managing business operations during the crisis. The site will also serve as a platform for listing timely ‘virtual’ events and programs in the technology industry.

CompTIA’s Executive Vice President for Industry Relations, Nancy Hammervik, said, “CompTIA is committed to helping the technology community stay connected and in step with each other by providing continued access to peers, business insight, useful tools and the resources organisations need to navigate the current environment.”

The effects of COVID-19 are having a significant impact on the technology sector. Like many industries, the sector has been forced to accelerate its transition to remote working. In addition, disruptions to raw materials supply and the electronics value chain is putting a strain on business operations and causing inflationary risk to products.

As a result, the industry has been forced to evaluate and de-risk its end-to-end value chain, while managing challenges like a virtual and skeletal workforce, against tight budgets.

Via the COVID-19 Resources Forum users can share tips on remote work along with details of philanthropic and community initiatives designed to help the industry.

Nancy Hammervik said, “Our members and the technology industry are doing incredible work in communities around the world and we want to make sure they have a platform to share best practices, success stories and valuable resources. The technology industry has stepped up and answered the call on so many levels and we want to empower professionals and companies to continue to serve their customers and the public.”

All content posted to the COVID-19 Resources Forum is moderated by CompTIA, which reserves the right to remove any postings that do not adhere to the user guidelines.
