Technology

We help our clients stay ahead of the curve and scale up with digital services and IT solutions.

Enabling digitization

As innovative technologies — like cloud computing, machine learning, the Internet of Things, blockchain, and robotics — become increasingly common around the world, they are poised to disrupt nearly every sector. The rapidly changing digital world and the huge numbers of potential new customers bring great opportunities for both technology firms and governments, but they also bring challenges.

At Strategy&, the longest-serving consulting firm in the Middle East, we help our clients make tough choices about what areas to pursue and what differentiating capabilities to build. By uniting strategy, design, and execution, we deliver immediate impact and long-term growth opportunities for governments, multinational and local IT companies, investors, media companies, and telecommunications companies. We advise leadership teams of all sizes on decisions related to:

  • Strategy and ways to play
  • Operating model
  • Planning and performance management
  • Portfolio and use cases design
  • ICT solutions design and development
  • Business development
  • Sales and pre-sales capabilities build up
  • Business operations and customer management
