Information technology (IT) has been the single most instrumental factor in driving business growth across industry verticals in the last two decades. Today it has much larger implications. Organizations are under pressure to ensure that every decision they make for R&D to product development, from marketing to sales, from customer acquisition to service delivery-- there is agility, mobility and optimal customer experience.
The confluence of IT with connectivity is what will reshape our universe. The world will have least 80 billion connected devices by 2020. Hence IT morphs into Digital Transformation and is slated to disrupt just about every aspect of business; the way organizations interact with consumers and the way they discover new opportunities.
Frost & Sullivan’s Information Technology research and consulting programs look at conventional and unconventional technologies, services and changing business models, with specific focus on disruptors such as social, mobility, analytics, cloud (SMAC), cybersecurity, artificial intelligence, machine learning, big data, and IOT or the Internet of Things.
We work closely with the world’s largest IT firms and upcoming disruptive start-ups to predict macro and micro trends related to products, services, technology and business models that can define growth. Tailored, customized solutions provide clients with the best strategies for growth, supported by the right key data points researched to meet the client’s needs and the specific engagement. Our research spans broadly across the sector and provides deep insights into specific markets in the most significant areas of IT and the IT industry.
