Question:How can we evaluate the technology base of a company and give an accurate assessment of its breadth and depth?
Answer:It is because we have "been there, done that" in many diverse industries and with many diverse technologies.
- Schooled in the Fundamentals
We are, by training and by profession, engineers and computer scientists. We apply rigorous methodologies to all we do. We have been called both "anal" and "retentive". We can't argue.
- Experienced in the History of Technology
We have experienced the evolution of technology, the "S" curves, the "knees" and the "discontinuities". We can recognize an old idea in a new outfit. This is not to say that old ideas, applied to new circumstances, can't be innovative. It's just good to know the difference.
- Grounded in Realities ofBusiness
Because of our breadth of business experience we can remain objective in the face of the best "hype" assaults. We believe that these are exciting times with massive opportunities for those delivering and/or using the newest technologies. But unless the technology fits within a basic business plan, contributing to and augmenting that plan, it may not be adding value.
