The tech sector is facing powerful, disruptive forces as innovation emerges at an accelerating pace and market conditions necessitate new ways to adapt.

While “growth at all costs” has defined the tech industry for many years, shifting capital markets, growth estimates, and investor expectations now force management teams to deliver profitable growth while self-funding investments to stay competitive. Additional headwinds such as slowing demand, supply chain constraints, and cyber threats pose further challenges for tech companies.

AlixPartners’ Technology Industry Practice is a trusted advisor to tech CxOs and investors as they shape their agendas to respond to strategic, financial, and operational challenges and drive their companies toward growth and profitability.

Our global team of 200+ practitioners brings together extensive sector-specific knowledge, a suite of cutting-edge proprietary platforms, and a demonstrated history of accelerated value creation. We deploy small, senior teams with a pragmatic and collaborative approach to provide hands-on support, ensure strong stakeholder alignment, build trust, and rigorously tie results to both strategic goals and P&L impact.

How we can help

Product Profitability & Development Performance

We help tech companies looking to optimize product strategy, product portfolios, development roadmaps, and R&D resource allocation to ensure the right balance between running and maintaining existing products and developing/launching new ones. Our approach provides a fresh, end-to-end view of product and customer lifecycles, creating transparency over development costs, go-to-market investments, and operational activities to create an adjusted reporting structure that highlights product and new development profitability and unveils imbalances between run-the-business and expansion, and sub-optimal operational processes. Typical levers include product roadmap planning and portfolio rationalization; optimization of R&D and engineering structure and operating model; and product architecture, operations, org structure, and commercial strategy—including pricing, go-to-market, channel strategy, and customer support.

Go-to-Market & Revenue Growth

We work with tech companies to develop a go-to-market approach tailored to drive operational effectiveness, sales productivity, and overall top-line growth and monetization.

Example levers include:

  • Top line growth
  • Go-to-market & sales org effectiveness
  • Customer segmentation & coverage model
  • Pricing & discounting
  • Partner operating model
