Technology, media & telecommunications
An industry that never stands still
Like the industrial revolution before it, the digital revolution is changing the world for ever. Economically, socially and practically, our lives will never be the same again.
Even now, the way we work, the entertainment we consume, the personal connections we make, are all facilitated by technology. It affects everything we do - with more to come once the Internet of Things goes mainstream. The technology, media and telecommunications (TMT) industry is a massive part of that development. It, like the world around it, is constantly evolving.
Fortunately, the TMT industry and the businesses within it thrive on change. They are rising to the challenge. Just as technology firms are innovating and scaling rapidly, media companies are personalising and integrating. And all the while telecommunication companies are feeding the monster that is the ever-increasing demand for bandwidth. The lines are rapidly blurring between these formerly distinct sectors.
The winners in this environment are those prepared to assess the risks and possibilities, and rethink their strategies. Ambitious businesses are developing new operating models and compliance procedures. They are thinking seriously about M&A’s, both at home and abroad. And they are competing for talent more fiercely than ever before.
And they are succeeding at achieving accelerated growth. But adaptability and focus are crucial components as well: cool heads and clear thinking is imperative. And that’s where Grant Thornton comes in.
