Grid Technology Partners is a market research and consulting firm focused on the fields of grid computing, autonomic computing, utility computing and related technologies. Solid industry knowledge combined with technical expertise helps GTP provide clients the world over with timely unbiased information that they can use to guide their business decisions. Grid Technology Partners was established in May of 2002 in Silicon Valley. In May of 2003 the company relocated to the Boston metropolitan area.
Our debut publication, The Global Grid Computing Report 2002 Š Technology and Market Assessment was released in August of 2002, and to date remains the definitive study of the grid computing market. We have been hired to provide custom consulting services by numerous corporations and venture funds.
Our clients today include some of the largest companies in Asia, Europe and Americas including Sun Microsystems, Intel Corporation, Daimler Chrysler, British Telecommunications, Cisco Systems, Fujitsu Limited and NTT Group.
Grid Technology Partners has been quoted in Investor's Business Daily, Business Week, Red Herring, ZDNet, R&D Magazine, GridToday, Grid Computing Planet, Light Reading as well as many other regional print and web publications. We are also regularly invited to speak at conferences such as the Harvard Business School's Cyberposium, Grid Computing Planet Conference, Enterprise Linux Conference, Next Generation Networks Conference and CCGrid Conference.
We not only maintain deep industry contacts in this emerging field with established players such as Sun Microsystems, HP and IBM, but also with smaller startup firms. We work extensively with the academic as well the venture capital community to keep abreast of the latest academic as well as impending commercial developments.
Grid Technology Partners' technology and market assessment is based on the following three basic and inter-related tenets, which we have assembled from numerous years of participating in technology evolutions (and revolutions).
¤ Technology, Context & People (Organizations)
We believe that the degree of success of a particular technology depends not only on its technical sophistication, but whether it is being presented to right market at the right time and by the right organizations.
¤ Disruptive Capacity
While the term disruptive technology has attained somewhat of a clichˇd status, in our mind, it makes it no less important. It has now been proven time and again that technology and companies that target poorly defined and seemingly unattractive markets tend to possess enormous capacity for upward mobility into markets of incumbents. We therefore apply various litmus tests to determine the degree of disruptiveness of particular technologies.
¤ Technology Changes, Laws of Economics Don't
Our objective is not to get lost in the trees of technology and technological change, but to strictly keep an eye on the forest as well. While technology rushes forward, seemingly chaotically, a few basic economic concepts go a long way in determining who will succeed and who will fail. We pay particular attention to the impact of technology on total factor productivity; one of the significant indicators of corporate profit efficiency and real wage growth.
In our market studies, consulting and advisory services we systematically assess technology, markets and potential market opportunity based on these three tenets.
We believe our unique approach is best suited for technologies such as grid computing and on-demand computing due to their relative nascence in the technology life cycle.
