How would you explain events of 2020 to someone emerging from a cave in just two minutes? We took a stab at this task for last night's Channel Awards
Satya Nadella's proclamation in May that the world has seen "two years of digital transformation in two months" is probably the quote that best sums up 2020 for the technology industry.
But if you had just two minutes to explain the year to someone emerging from a 12-month caving expedition, what would you tell them?
We've had a stab at this task in the above video, which aired last night as part of the first digital CRN Channel Awards.
2020 saw the one-year anniversary of our sister title, Channel Partner Insight. Since then, however, there's only been one story in town in the form of the disruption caused by the pandemic.
Since we made the video, Pfizer's news on Monday of an imminent vaccine knocked 17 per cent off Zoom's share price. Not great news for the videoconfencing giant (or Donald Trump Junior, who was also enraged by the timing of Pfizer's announcement), but a COVID breakthrough that would have made a worthy alternative ending to our summary.
