DSP-Partners is a management consulting firm which focuses on Digital Strategies for the TIMES-industries (Telecommunications, IT, Multimedia, Entertainment and Security) and strategic internet-topics in related industries.
Besides Telecommunications and Media, today more and more industries have to successfully address the challenges of Digital Times - be it software-companies, retail, consumer electronics and telephony hardware, automotive suppliers and OEMs or banks and utilities.
Increasingly, more and more of a company's strategic decisions are impacted by the digitization of society, the growing penetration of mobile internet, cloud computing and the 'internet of things'. This second wave of the internet is not solely focused on 'websites' and eCommerce as it was in the year 2000. Increasingly, the real and the digital world merge, creating the need for strategies that address the trend towards convergence of products and services, rapid change and ever more technology and hardware in most products and services. These strategic and operational challenges span across large parts of the enterprise: functions, processes, culture, products...
In Digital Times, a customer-driven, holistic approach is essential. Due to quick turnaround times for product development and a fast pace in the industry, Strategy and the operative business merge very closely. Strategic decisions need to be taken fast (based on a robust and holistic framework), implementation barriers need to be identified early. During implementation and later operations, the customer's view, competition and technological topics need to be monitored at all times.
