Impressive as this seems, Sky has recently revealed a massive shift in strategy with the launch of Sky Glass. Not only does this signal the end of the road for satellite dishes with a move to streaming, it also sees Sky enter the TV manufacturing market - a development that experts say puts it in direct competition with the likes of Samsung and Sony.
In one fell swoop, Sky has not only changed a long-standing component of its core business model, but it’s also entering a mature and highly competitive consumer manufacturing market.
Clearly, they have the resources to back this up with serious levels of investment, but its strategy offers some important lessons for every ambitious business.
A key point is that for businesses of all sizes and in every niche, technology is a huge enabler of business innovation, operational improvement and better financial performance. In today’s digital economy, IJYI works closely with clients to transform business effectiveness with innovative, high quality software that delivers on their requirements.
In practical terms, many organisations face large-scale project management challenges which can lead to damaging overspend and missed delivery deadlines. In contrast, our approach dramatically improves the way software projects are managed and implemented.
In the words of Richard Finch, Managing Director of Plant Parts "IJYI's collaborative approach has meant that we have been fully engaged in the project at each stage. Their team are highly competent and bring a level of creativity and flair which has meant that we've not only achieved the results we hoped for but the process has been an enjoyable experience."
