The inexorable rise in the numbers of connected devices in our lives and businesses has led to an exponential growth in data collected. Smartly managing and analysing these vast public and proprietary databases is delivering fast and measurable returns for businesses, regulators and governments alike. The Big Data revolution promises faster and better decisions on the most basic level and the opportunity to get previously impossible insight at its most advanced.
Such is the ubiquity of businesses promising cloud services that one might be forgiven for thinking this ship had long since sailed for interesting investments in this space. In keeping with theme of this document, the reverse is the case. The vast majority of data and applications still sit on local devices ready for liberation, and those services that are already delivered via the cloud offer an infinite number of cloud based integration opportunities.
Our understanding of the applications of technology doesn’t stop at the conceptual. We have a deep knowledge of service delivery and a strong belief that as technology becomes ever more important to organisations, those service providers that can demonstrate genuine thought leadership and deliver competitive advantage and risk mitigation to clients will grow very quickly. Our interests cover IT infrastructure, marketing as a service, cyber security and more.
Driven lately by emerging markets and mobile devices, B2C ecommerce stands at $1.5 trillion and has been growing at 20% per annum according to emarketer.com. With same day and 24.7 delivery services sweeping across big cities it becomes hard to paint a good business case for any retail business that doesn’t offer immediate convenience or involve some level of human service.
Astuta’s management team brings years of experience in key areas, not least of which is hard-won experience starting technology businesses from scratch and building to multi- million pound exits.
Whether you are just starting your business, or if you are looking to finance your growth, Astuta can provide invaluable support at any stage of your journey.
