These partnerships increased overall satisfaction levels by 21% in 2019 and 2020, versus a drop in satisfaction levels by 5% in 2018 and 2019, particularly due to a sudden shift in enterprise expectations in terms of adopting a digital-first working model and technology vendors’ investments in enhancing their cloud, digital, and data offerings.
