Horizon Scanning, Technology and Strategy

Image of Cheetah scanning the horizon

The cheetah, the fastest land animal on earth, is capable of achieving 80-120km/h. Success is rooted in agility, but aside from raw speed, it’s also a highly effective hunter.

Missing the weight and power of its cousins; it compensates through incredible timing and intelligence, outwitting its target, wrong-footing it then suffocating it. The macabre reality of the natural world.

The cheetah scans the horizon for threats, risks and opportunities and then acts fast using its strengths to mitigate or exploit them.

This paradigm translates well into the business and stakeholder environment. Sadly the cheetah cannot mitigate the threat to its habitat by humans. Humans have created problems which pose a threat to our own survival too.

This is why horizon scanning is so important.

A continual assessment of the threats, risks and opportunities arising from the proliferation of the digital world requires a forward-thinking mindset.

Accept that things will change and don’t fear the unknown.

We can wait and suffer the consequences, or we can actively look and act with agility. This is the key to survival and success in this rapidly changing landscape.

How Anekanta can help

Based on primary and secondary research, due diligence and strategic analysis, we assess the market, determine the current position and develop the plans.

We review and evaluate innovations and product road maps with a focus on matching benefits to user needs in our specialised sectors: defence and security, professional security and video surveillance, healthcare and manufacturing.

Looking at problems from many perspectives – our core Anekanta philosophy – we create new strategies, examine the value chain, create the value proposition, growth strategy and determine barriers to entry to the target sectors.

Looking into the future

We believe that innovation has no boundaries therefore not all of our clients are bringing technology to market. Ideation and creativity are in our DNA and we are open to talk about solving any problem which generates stakeholder value.

When working with Anekanta Consulting we will bring your board and organisation a different perspective through:

  • Horizon scanning, creating vision and deep insights into the risk and opportunities arising from technology trends
  • Evaluating and re-purposing existing technology, adding AI capability and bringing new value to solving problems caused by unmanaged data proliferation
  • Reviewing and evaluating product road maps and their fit to market vs growth plans
  • Educating and informing the Board, explaining technically complex concepts in relatable terms to enable better decisions about technology, process and people
  • Product and market due diligence to support M & A strategy

We recommend and facilitate digitalisation through the use of artificial intelligence and machine learning in products and business process. For custom projects, we act as the bridge between the user and the developer resulting in the application of AI and other emerging technologies which meet real-world needs, coded in the right environment and which can be maintained and supported into the future.
