As media conglomerates amass content and pursue direct to consumer platforms, traditional media distribution models face increasing challenges to their business models. Making the necessary strategic investments becomes increasingly challenging for highly leveraged businesses.

Evolving consumer preferences of how content is consumed through mobile devices and on demand platforms coupled with rapid digitalization is stressing existing telecommunications infrastructure.   Emerging technologies such as 5G will require substantial capital investments throughout the telecommunications industry fueling increased consolidation and marginalization of undercapitalized players.

AI, demand for new network services, 5G migration and overall capex requirements, coupled with disruptive competition from technology vendors, service management providers, and other spaces are collectively challenging the competitive landscape of the telecommunications industry.

In the midst of sector convergence and shared challenges, the technology sector must also grapple with customer privacy and security concerns, governmental scrutiny and regulation, adoption of cloud technology, AI and machine learning, and obsolescence resulting from new technologies and disruptive industry upstarts.

MERU’s experienced professionals partner with companies and their management teams to help navigate through the challenges caused by these disruptive factors.
