Author: Hyoun Park
Key Stakeholders: Chief Information Officers, Chief Technology Officers, Chief Financial Officers, Finance and Accounts Payable Directors and Managers, Human Resources Officers, Procurement Directors, Telecom Directors and Managers, Mobility Directors and Managers, IT Architects, Vice President/Director/Manager of IT Operations, DevOps Managers, System Architects, Product Managers, IT Sourcing Directors and Managers, IT Procurement Directors and Managers
Why It Matters: The brightfin merger brings together three growth firms with synergistic capabilities: MobiChord, Mobile Solutions, and Visage Mobile. The Technology Expense Market (TEM) has seen many mergers and acquisitions with mixed results. In this light, IT departments want to know how this merger will affect their spend environments and when brightfin should be considered as a solution.
Top Takeaway: brightfin is taking a bold stance by consolidating on a single platform and only using the best-in-class capabilities associated with each acquired company. This approach is rarely taken in this market because of the fear of losing customers in the short term. Amalgam Insights believes that this approach is the right one for supporting customers in the long-term as well as making it easier to pursue future innovation and evolution as IT management only becomes more complicated.
