Analyst insight, networking drinks and dinner...

TMV logoOur fourth annual ‘Evening with TechMarketView’, sponsored by NetSuite, will take place in London on Thursday 8 September 2016. We're delighted that so many of you have already booked your place but if you haven't got around to it yet don't leave it any longer! We're down to the last few places - you can book by clicking here.

The TechMarketView analyst team is busy preparing for what promises to be an enjoyable and informative evening with drinks, dinner and of course analysis of the disruptive trends and suppliers shaping the UK software, IT services and business process services sectors.

Following the success of the sell-out 2015 TechMarketView Presentation & Dinner, this year’s event will once again be held in the magnificent premises of the Royal Institute of British Architects (RIBA) in Portland Place, London, from 6.15pm. We’re expecting a similar audience to the previous three years with around 250 ‘movers and shakers’ from the UK tech scene, for what has been described by previous C-level attendees as “the best networking event in the industry”.

The evening, which will be centred around our 2016 research theme ‘Surfing the Waves of Disruption’, will commence with short, insightful presentations from the TechMarketView analyst team highlighting key trends in the UK software and IT services market. As in previous years there will also be a guest appearance from the CEO of a disruptive ‘Little British Battler’ company.

The formal part of the evening will be followed by ample time for networking over pre-dinner drinks, sponsored by Wells Fargo, and a sumptuous three course dinner with your peers.

**NEW RESEARCH** Banking Software and Sector Transformation

cityMajor banking companies in the UK are dependent on bespoke software for their core banking operations. These businesses are central to the banks’ success but are under pressure due to higher costs, increasing competition and additional regulation. We have long argued that the established banks should increase their use of third party providers of more standardised software to reduce cost and complexity and to accelerate innovation.

Following a series of meetings with software vendors and several company-specific reports, FinancialServicesViews now provides an overview of the banking software market in its latest report; “The role of Banking Software Providers in the transformation of the sector”.

This analysis discusses the issues of dependence on bespoke software and comments on the key criteria for supplier choice as the banking sector increasingly looks to the suppliers of standardised software for a wider range of core banking functionality. With the emergence of new challengers to the established banks, the inexorable move to more standardised systems and the role that the software providers can play in the implementation of innovative technologies and services, this area should continue to experience above-average growth over the medium term.

This report is available to subscribers to FinancialServicesViews, via this link. If you would like to subscribe to this research stream, please contact our Client Services team.

ICYMI: Public Sector cloud services research

Clouds behind ParliamentIn case you missed it... last week the PublicSectorViews team published two pieces of research looking at the cloud services market in the public sector.

The first report was entitled 'Cloud Adoption in Whitehall'. Five years after the UK Government published its Cloud Strategy, the report looks at the current situation in central government, summarises the original objectives, considers the progress made and asks what the future holds for adoption of as-a-service solutions within the central government departments and agencies.

The second piece of research was entitled 'Memset: Light at the end of the tunnel'. Here, the PublicSectorViews team investigates the story behind several quarters of slowing growth for Memset, makes clear the company's UK Government intentions, explains why Craig-Wood is optimistic about the coming months, and delves into some of her most ambitious plans.

Don't miss out. If you already a PublicSectorViews subscriber, you can download the research now. If you are not yet a subscriber, please contact Deb Seth to find out more.

*New Research* Cloud Adoption in Whitehall

Clouds behind Houses of ParliamentIn March 2011 the Government announced the Government Cloud Strategy as a sub strategy of the Government ICT Strategy.

More than five years on, the latest research from the TechMarketView PublicSectorViews team looks at the current situation in Whitehall. We look at the original objectives, consider the progress that has been made and ask what the future holds for adoption of as-a-service solutions within the central government departments and agencies.

What has been the impact of the G-Cloud procurement framework? Which suppliers are making their mark? What place does the Crown Hosting Service have? And is there enough impetus for cloud adoption to accelerate? Or will a myriad barriers hamper progress?

If you are a PublicSectorViews or InfrastructureViews subscriber, you can download the research – Cloud Adoption in Whitehall: Where are we now? - today. If you would like to find out how to access this research report (and much more), please contact Deb Seth, who will be more than happy to help.

*NEW RESEARCH* Japanese BPO firm OSI buys Liberata (update)

lThe takeover of Liberata UK, the long-time public sector business process services (BPS) playerby Japanese BPO provider Outsourcing Inc (OSI), came as something of a surprise (see Japanese BPO firm buys Liberata for £43m). We had been anticipating a deal, but expected one of the ‘usual suspect’ BPS providers.

The takeover means we now have, for the first time, a Japanese-owned BPO company competing in the UK public sector BPS market.

lOSI will be a new name to many in the UK SITS market, and very much an 'unusual suspect' new parent for Liberata. So who is OSI, and, why are they making this entrée in to the UK BPS market? Also, what does this mean for Liberata and their customers as part of this new group?

TechMarketView subscribers can read our analysis in the UKHotViewsExtra comment here: Japanese BPO firm OSI buys Liberata (update). If you aren’t yet a TechMarketView subscriber, and would like to learn more, contact Deb Seth who will be happy to help.

*NEW RESEARCH* Attenda: Retracing its steps to growth

attendaAttenda has been backed by Darwin Private Equity since 2011 meaning the time looks right for a possible exit this year. The application hosting firm is well placed to serve enterprises requiring business critical hosting services – an area of the infrastructure services market that is growing strongly. However, Attenda has struggled to grow its core hosting business, although the Group has received a small uplift from the Datum datacentre business it established a few years ago. Some new client wins in the first half of 2016 have helped to lift what has been a fairly static topline performance in the past two years, but the company needs to power up its revenue flow and take better advantage of fast-growing areas of the market.

This research note examines Attenda’s performance and areas of potential growth, and we look at how that might impact a possible sale in the near term.

Subscribers to either our Foundation Service or InfrastructureViews research stream can read the note here: Attenda: Retracing its steps to growth.

*New Research* UK Government: Digital leadership changes

Kevin Cunnington photoThe wires are hot with speculation over what the future holds for the Government Digital Service (GDS) after it was announced, yesterday, that Stephen Foreshew-Cain stepped down from his role as Executive Director, GDS, after only a year in position. In his place, Kevin Cunningham, formerly Director General of Business Transformation at DWP, steps into the position of Director General, GDS.

This is the first time GDS has been led by a Director General, which in the UK Civil Service is usually a Senior Civil Servant reporting directly to the Permanent Secretary of the department (in this case of the Cabinet Office).

In the latest UKHotViewsExtra from the PublicSectorViews team, Georgina O'Toole considers recent changes within the Cabinet Office and GDS and what they mean for the future of digital transformatin within Whitehall and the wider public sector. TechMarketView subscribers can read UK Government: Digital leadership changes now. If you are not yet a subscriber, please contact Deb Seth to find out more.
