Technology

Technology companies face many common challenges, whether they are in semiconductor devices or equipment, digital devices or network infrastructure, software or IT services. They operate in a global environment. The pace of change is rapid and driven by the unrelenting velocity of technology, the emergence of new competitors, the evolution of customer needs and expectations, and business-model innovations that reverberate across the world.
