High Tech & Telecom Providers (HTTP)
The HTTP industry continues to experience unprecedented change — technology paradigms such as cloud computing are forcing companies to rethink business models and ecosystems. This change is blurring market boundaries creating hyper-competition from both traditional and non-traditional competitors. Customers are demanding more and improved services at lower prices with shorter time-to-market. HTTP firms have global reach, hence they undertake M&As to enter new markets and access new capabilities.
In addition to rapidly evolving markets, costs optimization remains a priority thus complex processes and legacy IT systems require urgent and radical re-engineering. HTTP executives need to be bold - they must accelerate their firm's pace of innovation while aggressively reducing operational costs. Leveraging Gartner's unique industry positioning - sitting objectively between buyers and sellers of technology - we assist HTTP clients to sharpen competitive market strategies while optimizing their enterprise IT operations.
