Portfolio


Since the 1950s and the introduction of mainframe computers, the information technology industry has grown rapidly, often driven in bursts by major new technology cycles. Supercomputers, minicomputers, the personal computer, mobile devices, client/server networks, the Internet, and software as a service - all of these developments have led to substantial productivity gains and economic growth for companies large and small. Today, global IT spending is approaching $4 trillion dollars annually, with annual growth estimated at 3 to 5 percent, and at Ascent, we are interested in the revolutionary tech advancements occurring at an international level.

Accordingly, IT spending is shifting away from existing legacy systems and toward disruptive next generation solutions that we loosely organize into four areas of focus:

» Data & Analytics

» Cloud Innovation

» Cybersecurity

» Mobile First and IoT

Bottom line: We invest in high-growth markets and leverage all of our resources to make your company as successful as possible.
