2023 Predictions on Tech Transformation in a Downturn from Zayed Al Jamil
Zayed Al Jamil, Partner, discusses the challenges and opportunities arising from the economic downturn and how technology will transform the business environment in 2023. Zayed expects several major tech driven transformations. One is distress in the tech supply chain as companies have more complex tech stacks than last time we were in a downturn. Another is AI becoming incorporated into standard products and services, so buyers will need to be aware of the risks. Lastly, Zayed sees an uptick in carve-out transactions with technology being a real driver of deal complexity.
