Technology companies considering an exit cannot ignore the disruptive technologies changing lives and transforming markets. Even the largest firms must adapt to these trends or fall behind. No company has the foresight to always lead the innovation curve, so the most successful acquire the pioneering companies with the expertise to help them continue that disruptive success.
Each year, Corum composes a list of the key trends driving tech M&A, drawn from transactions in every sector, spanning hundreds of events, global reports and information from conversations with all of the buyers. 2017 has produced a particularly instructive set, described below. To learn more about these technology trends, and much more, request Corum's 2018 Global Tech M&A Report.
