We surveyed 500 project managers in the U.S. in March 2020 about their enterprise software purchasing plans. This was at a time when most offices were closed, and many businesses were already responding to the COVID-19 global pandemic. We wanted to know if people were still planning to buy enterprise software in 2020, and why. Was it to deliver better reporting, save on costs, or change how people work, for example. We also wanted to find out what the barriers were to new enterprise software purchases and the main reasons why these projects didn't always go to plan.
