*NEW RESEARCH* The Expanding Influence of Babylon

Babylon logoNHS England has given permission for Babylon’s GP at Hand service to extend outside of London for the first time. It had previously advised against expansion due to concerns about access to local clinical pathways and screening services. NHS Hammersmith and Fulham Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG), where GP at Hand is based, and Birmingham and Solihull CCG will now work together to agree when the service will start operating in Birmingham.

Report Cover ImageUse of Babylon’s GP at Hand app, which provides a symptoms checker, appointment booking and online consultation service, has grown rapidly since its introduction. It has been a controversial success story though, because when patients sign up for the service they deregister from their existing GP practice and the NHS funding for that patient goes with them. This is leading to concerns about a two-tier system developing where the younger and fitter patients are cherry picked from their previous practice.

Babylon has long wanted to expand the GP at Hand service outside of London, but, until now, had been blocked by Hammersmith and Fulham CCG and NHS England. The restrictions on expansion into Birmingham have now been removed and GP at Hand looks set to add patients from the city to its service shortly.

In this report we look at the history of GP at Hand, the impact of its expansion, the company behind the technology and concerns about how that company has been championed by the Government.

*NEW RESEARCH* Musing on the Mid-Tier Indian pure-plays

chartWhile the Top 6 Indian pure-plays (IPPs) have been struggling for growth in recent times, the mid-tier suppliers have generally shown them a clean pair of heels with double-digit growth rates.

Having revenues broadly between $500m-$1bn, there is much speculation about consolidation among the mid-tier players to create more formidable competition for the top tier suppliers.

In the latest edition of OffshoreViews, TechMarketView managing partner Anthony Miller takes a closer look at the mid-tier players and speculates on whether there are indeed any ‘marriages to be made in heaven’!

Plus there’s the usual Snapshot summaries of the Top Tier IPPs and all sorts of colourful charts to enlighten the uninformed on the state of play among the offshore services market leaders.

*New Research* Launching TechMarketView's Market Readiness Index

MRI logoIn case you missed the excitement yesterday, TechMarketView is proud to have launched the first research published as part of our brand-new Tech User Programme (see here for more information).

Our first Tech User Programme report focuses on the UK’s Top 10 IT and business process services providers: Accenture, Atos, Capgemini, Capita, Cognizant, DXC, Fujitsu, HCL, IBM, and TCS. The in-depth, highly valuable, 86-page, report answers a fundamental question for the end user community: how ready are these leading suppliers to support their clients – the tech buyers – as they seek to digitally transform their organisations?

To answer this question, TechMarketView’s has designed the Market Readiness Index (MRI). The Index has been devised with buyers, for buyers, to help assess how advanced suppliers are when it comes to being able to contribute to the creation of more intelligent and more automated organisations for their customers. Our conversations with end user decision makers have revealed that they are looking for independent and expert guidance that they can trust. They want new ideas, honest recommendations and true collaboration from suppliers. And we have responded to that.

The MRI applies our highly regarded, rigorous, research approach to assess suppliers across six key areas: Corporate Resilience; Suitability of Offerings; Skills & Resources; Partner Ecosystem; Industry Expertise; and Delivery & Execution. This involves in-depth, revealing conversations with various functions within the supplier organisations as well as with a selection of clients.

TUP logoOver the coming months, we will expand our Tech Users Programme and will set about assessing a broader cross section of players. The analysis will be shared with senior buyers in the TechMarketView’s end user community.

If you are an End User organisations and have joined our Tech User Programme, you can download the report – TechMarketView Market Readiness Index (MRI): Top 10 UK IT & business process services suppliers – today. If you would like to find out more about joining the programme and accessing the report, you can find out more from Deb Seth.

If you are an IT/BP services provider and you are an existing TechMarketView subscription service client, reports published within our Tech User Programme are available to purchase. Please contact Deb Seth for information.

*UKHotViewsExtra* Atos 3-year plan reflects changed shape of business

Atos logoAtos made two significant moves in 2018. The first, the acquisition by Atos Worldline of SIX Payment Services, came in May (see Worldline scores SIX to build lead in European payments), reinforcing Worldline’s position as the largest payments business in Europe. The second came in in July. It was the acquisition of Syntel – see All eyes on Atos North America – which made North America Atos’ largest geography, brought increased capabilities in banking, finance and insurance, and boosted the company’s offshore resources, particularly in digital.

Having changed the size and business mix of Atos, the influence of these two acquisitions was clear to see in the main announcements from the company’s Investor Day last week. There were three key reveals: 1) the deconsolidation of Atos Worldline, 2) the three-year plan (ADVANCE 2021) and 3) a first look at the FY18 performance.

HV Premium logoHaving spoken with Atos CEO UK & Ireland, Adrian Gregory about the Group’s future plans, in the UKHotViewsExtra – Atos 3-year plan reflects changed shape of business – we take a look at where Atos will be focusing its attentions in the years ahead and consider its biggest challenges and opportunities.  TechMarketView subscribers (including UKHotViews Premium subscribers) can download the research note now.

*NEW RESEARCH* Business Process Services Supplier Prospects 2019 and Beyond

coverWhilst shifting market dynamics remain consistent for all Business Process Services (BPS) providers, suppliers will continue to respond in different and varied ways. Currently most of the large players are busy repositioning and reinventing themselves in an effort to remain relevant in the new market.

The Business Process Services Supplier Prospects 2019 and Beyond report identifies the challenges facing BPS suppliers, how they can best respond to them, and the things they should be doing to thrive in the long term. It also includes profiles of the top 10 BPS suppliers to the UK, making it essential reading for suppliers operating in the UK BPS market.

The preference for tech enabled digital services is seeing some of the traditional lift and shift players, look to focus on developing scalable and reusable digital platforms. Others are emphasising their strong vertical capabilities and specialisms. 

Automation-powered digital change will continue to reshape the BPS landscape, Having the right partner ecosystem in place will be more crucial than ever, whilst the importance of strategic consulting expertise will increase as the opportunity to redesign and integrate business processes from customer experience right through to the back office becomes more compelling.

Share Indices in Jan 19

Jan 19 was a pretty good month for shares - tech in particular. NASDAQ rose by 10% but is STILL down nearly 10% from its high at the end of Sept 18. FTSE100 started 2019 with a 3.6% gain but is also STILL down over 9% from its Aug 18 highs.

HVPThe FTSE SCS Index - which most closely maps the UK SITS stocks we follow - rose 4% in Jan. A decent enough start to the year but still down a massive 34% from mid Jan 18. Those were the days before the big falls in Sage and Micro Focus.

Richard Holway’s Review of share performance in Jan 19 is exclusively available to TechMarketView clients including HotViews Premium subscribers. If you are not a paying subscriber, join today!
