Technology strategy

Technology strategy

In the aftermath of the recent global economic slowdown, companies have been searching for ways to cut costs while at the same time grow capabilities that are core to their future growth. Traditionally, Technology strategy has been viewed as a cost center for most companies, one of the first areas where cost cutting would occur, due partially to the enormous complexity that was created within the Technology strategy organization over the years. Moving forward, as organizations have been forced to cut costs and look strategically at where the company is going, Technology strategy has the opportunity to take a strategic role as an enabler of future business success.

PwC’s strategy consulting team Strategy& has extensive experience on a global scale helping large organizations in both the private and public sector make technology a strategic enabler of business success through our four interrelated service areas:
