"The top five challenges IT departments face in fulfilling their IT hardware demands are insufficient request information (37%), single vendor reliance (32%), vendor-enforced order limits (32%), opaque delivery timeframes (30%), and employees not returning their systems (30%)."

"GetApp discovered that 78% of the respondents faced an IT hardware supply chain delay in the past 12 months, including from Dell (50%), Microsoft (47%), and Apple (43%). 71% of respondents are experiencing shipping delays of up to six months, and 52% have waited between four to 13 months."
