New technologies come and go. Yet some can truly disrupt the status quo. This is what we see on the global market place right now.
The advance of cloud computing and new online services. The integration of new technology platforms, creating new possibilities and new risks - the ascent of Big Data and Advanced Analytics Management. The ‘Internet of Everything’ and the explosion in electronic products. Technology leaders are dealing with multiple evolutionary changes. Moreover, relentless competition means that they must walk a tightrope to deliver price advantage whilst delivering cutting-edge, high quality and relevant products and solutions.
As connected, agile and forward-looking as its clients, Amrop Carmichael Fisher’s Technology Practice Group has the borderless reach and the industry insights to offer unparalleled support through the transition.
Leaders For What’s Next is our core value proposition. Guiding the leading growth companies of tomorrow towards What’s Next.
Hardware, Semiconductors & Electronics
The outlook remains challenging given the sluggish economic recovery and the rapid softening of end product demand, particularly for PCs, handsets, servers and consumer electronics. Still in the long term, growth is expected as the newer technologies are adopted in new product categories and the demand for electronic products continues to grow.
In this context, the Amrop Carmichael Fisher team is aware that this industry will require business leaders and senior managers with business agility, a strong focus on constant innovation and the ability to provide robust leadership. All whilst maintaining firm operational control and further developing key customer relationships.
Software & Internet
Software permeates all facets of the technology industry and software company leaders are constantly challenged to innovate, improve reliability and service, deliver more for less and keep pace with rapid-fire growth. This makes Software and Internet the most volatile part of the Tech industry with perpetual changes to product and business models. Innovation and value can come from any player - from a small software start-up to a global networking provider. At the same time, Internet is expanding into enterprise assets and consumer items such as cars and televisions with multiple implications in terms of operational and organisational impact.
Amrop Carmichael Fisher Partners understand this fast-moving environment – one which calls for senior executives able to anticipate and address the transformational challenges of their businesses and industry.
System Integration, IT Services & Outsourcing
From System Integration, Infrastructure and Application Management Outsourcing, Managed Services and IT Consulting, service providers operating in this rapidly evolving environment are under intense pressure to increase value delivery and optimise efficiency. They must design value-added solutions which can be delivered anywhere in the world, evolve their offering and differentiate the customer experience.
Amrop Carmichael Fisher is aware that services are fundamentally a people business, making the importance of high-quality, senior talent absolutely pivotal.
