In a sector driven by fast-growth, the emergence of non-traditional competitors and markets is challenging established technology business models.

Emergence of non-traditional competitors is challenging technology business models.

The twin pressures of globalisation and market convergence confront electronics, software and services' businesses with significant opportunities and risks. Competition is squeezing margins, undermining the ownership of intellectual property and threatening revenue streams.

As new technologies are adopted around the world, it has become increasingly important for the leaders in this sector to understand the complexity and business transformation impact of rolling out these new products and services.

Technology executives must also confront a variety of industry trends that include:

  • cloud services
  • consumerisation of IT
  • mobility
  • shorter product life cycles
  • digital convergence
  • optimising global supply chains
  • big data
  • customer privacy and security
  • IT transformation initiatives
  • counterfeiting and grey market distribution
  • IP protection.
