Threats to technology businesses

Posted on

Disputes cost time, money and emotional capital – they cause disruption and are a very real threat to technology businesses of all sizes. Even the winners can end up crippled by the costs.

In the technology world the potential to be drawn into expensive, long running disputes is almost unlimited – there are just so many complex areas where unexpected threats can emerge…

Just a few:

  • Complex agreements
  • End user licenses
  • Software implementation
  • IP infringement
  • Disaster recovery
  • Cyber security breaches
  • Former employees stealing data, IP, clients
  • Functionality
  • Performance issues
  • Cost overruns
  • Digital fraud
  • Scope redefinition

Disputes can arise from a variety of sources:

  • Customers
  • Suppliers
  • Sub-contractors
  • Operating partners
  • Joint ventures
  • Former employees
  • Competitors

What are the threats to your business from a dispute?

  • Real cost in time
  • Real cost in ££££/$$$$ – even if you win
  • Real cost in emotional capital
  • Real cost to relationships
