"As we stand at the vanguard of our future, technology will enable and empower individuals and organizations to advance in the face of this unrivaled adversity.”
2016 marked the beginning of The 4TH Industrial Revolution. The term was coined by Klaus Schwab, Chairman of the World Economic Forum, to describe this period in which unprecedented technological innovation is fundamentally changing the way we live, work and relate to one another.
At the root of the 4th IR, is the global movement to maximize our potential through the development and deployment of innovative technologies across all industry sectors. When conceived 4 years ago, it was largely unthinkable that the world would be crippled by a global pandemic. Yet, the core attributes of this era address the very challenges that the Coronavirus has plagued us with.
Through the provision of interactive platforms, application of digital tools, and management of infinite data volume, the accomplishment of all pursuits is within reach. As we stand at the vanguard of our future, technology will enable and empower individuals and organizations to advance in the face of unrivaled adversity.
US companies currently command almost 1/3 of the world’s $5 Trillion Information Technology (IT) industry. In addition to the continuing demand for technology products and services here at home, the global growth is expected to continue to outpace all other industry sectors.
Those companies that are developing, delivering, or whose business models are anchored by technological innovation, are expected, with few exceptions, to outperform in this challenging environment.
Looking across the digital landscape, we forecast that Business Software and Services, Cyber Security, Digital Health and Managed Services are just four of the verticals that have the opportunity to outperform during and/or early after we stabilize the economy with a predictable market.
Drawing on our award-winning experience from leading over 147 successful technology M&A transactions, the Generational team has carefully evaluated and assembled a representative sampling of our current technology client assignments that we expect to excel in the market.
