Reformulating Growth Strategy for a Global IT Company

Find opportunities and route to market for a niche IT asset


A major global private equity firm turned to GLG after struggling to find a partner that could satisfy its research needs. It wanted to find growth opportunities for a niche IT security asset and to identify the company’s competitive advantage in priority client segments (including intelligent transportation systems), geographies, and products and services.

The GLG Solution

GLG appointed four subject matter experts to assess the asset, including one from the intelligent transportation systems space . The team also conducted 15 interviews with GLG experts who were former competitors, potential customers, and technologists, and launched a B2B survey to 100 potential customers to test out the company’s new product ideas.


The final report outlined paths for growth and opportunities. It also suggested a route to market, size of the prize, and partnership options. The client had different assumptions about the results, but the unexpected findings helped it reformulate its strategy for this portfolio company.
