Corporations operating within Technology, Media, and Telecommunications (TMT) sectors are facing challenges on global, regional and national levels as they transition through a period of rapid change and disruption. Traditionally operating in a separate but interconnected fashion, a digital revolution and evolution is breaking down boundaries between these sectors and driving a wave of connectivity.

Over the past decade, increasing processor power, connectivity speeds and data storage facilities have paved the way for the rapid uptake of cloud- and SaaS-based technologies at both the enterprise and consumer levels. Looking ahead, the emergence of the Internet of Things (IoT), also referred to as M2M, opens an entirely new vertical of connectivity that has the potential to drive TMT advancements over the coming years, with contributions to the global economy estimated to be approaching $100B USD and device connections predicted to show more than 50% year-on-year increases. Meanwhile, the growing volume of digital traffic and demand for speed is opening new channels and markets for media outlets to exploit, putting increasing burdens on traditional operator networks and requiring a host of new software and hardware technologies.

At Moorland Gray, we believe these circumstances have had the most significant impact upon the executive tier of corporate personnel, where a fusion of best-in-class technical skill sets and transformational leadership capabilities are increasingly required of the senior professionals who will be equipped to fulfill the demands and positively impact the trajectory of our clients’ organizations.
