OUR VIEW

    Many technology companies face daunting and sometimes contradictory challenges. On one hand, new markets and competitors continue to emerge, driven by innovation around seven general themes:
 
  • By doing IT architecture shifts
 
  • Create and emergence of new computing and communication platforms
 
  • By pure technical innovation
 
  • Develop new business models
 
  • By emergence of new ways to communicate
 
  •  Create "Accessory" opportunities created in the wake of platform success
 
  • By new applications generated by business processes
 
On the other hand, while changes are constant, In the themes in technology are perennial. In general, the new supplements rather than supplants the old, resulting in an increasingly complex landscape.
 
In a parallel to this continued innovation, many "older" swaths of the high-tech industry are maturing, following the same classic patterns are seen in other industries:
 
  • By increasing competitor concentration
 
  • More incremental product innovation
 
  • By increasing customer segment specialization
       Globalization
 
  • Migration to lower-cost channels
 
  • (De)regulation
 
  • Architectural, platform, format and business model shifts
 
  • The growing role of private equity firms in restructuring industry sectors facing growth challenges
