Technology

In an industry where innovation is both an opportunity and a threat, technology companies have to plan for the long-term and be ready to change on a dime. But how? Whether you lead a software, hardware, semiconductor, services, storage, components or peripherals business, our cross-sector expertise and global insights can help you plan for—and sustain—success.

What We Do

We have worked with clients in computer software and hardware, semiconductor, IT services, storage, components and peripherals sectors. Our clients include eight of the ten largest technology conglomerates, three of the five leading software manufacturers and many key participants in the semiconductor industry. Our experience extends across the globe.

RSTCA works with companies in all stages of industry and life cycles. We help:

  • Market leaders think through how acquisitions, adjacency moves, refined customer segmentation, improved sales force effectiveness, streamlined R&D processes, strategic sourcing and cost reduction efforts can help them maintain, or even increase, their advantage.
  • Companies that have hit a speed bump find defensible niches, overhaul their cost structure, and think through and execute potential changes in capital structure.
  • Software companies identify opportunities for growth that will propel them into the ranks of top performers.
  • Emerging players continue their trajectory by helping them to scale their organizations and processes to the increased complexity of their market participation.
  • CTOs, CIOs, financial sponsors and companies of all sizes and in all sectors understand the full potential of cloud computing to transform how work gets done.
  • Companies across many industries leverage the continually expanding capabilities of the Internet of Things.
  • Private equity portfolio companies align strategic imperatives with their new owners, develop and implement plans to improve operational performance.

RSTCA works with leading technology companies to build strategic plans that address the industry’s challenges, such as how technical and business model innovations shape the growth of a company’s core business; the ways in which cloud computing will impact the business; and whether a company should consider entry into the services profit pools of the industry—and if so, how.

RSTCA Technology practice also provides clients with comprehensive how-to expertise via our Media and Telecommunications practices.

In addition, our Private Equity group has an extensive history of involvement in the technology industry.
