New York, NY -- (SBWIRE) -- 09/22/2021 -- One of the most problematic shortages to hit supply chains in the wake of the pandemic has been that affecting semiconductors. These electronics supply chain problems have affected not only the automotive industry but IT and enterprise too. While the early stages of the pandemic saw a shortage of kit such as laptops as a result of these early problems, the situation has not eased but instead has become a very persistent problem that many IT leaders are now struggling to deal with. Lead times have been extended and extended and, according to Gartner, are now up to as long as 120 days. Plus, there is no imminent sign of this situation changing with most forecasts showing zero improvement until the second quarter of 2022. In the IT world this is creating pressure on suppliers to diversify the devices that are being employed and adjust requirements to fill equipment gaps.
