*NEW RESEARCH*: Opportunities in mobile micro moments

ImageWith so much business and consumer activity switching to mobile devices the battle for the hearts, minds and fingers of mobile users is frenetic. Where there is frenzy, there is radical change and the emergence of mobile micro moments is the latest proof point.

The mobile environment is at the sharp end of changes in user behaviour and how individuals consume data to make decisions. One of the effects of these changes is the emergence of mobile micro moments. These are bursts of activity driven by an immediate need, question, or simple curiosity that occur multiple times a day and can be over in a matter of seconds. They are the epitome of ‘I want something, and I want it now’ urges, with users fulfilling them by reaching for their nearest mobile device. For UK SITS providers they present both hard challenges and fresh revenue opportunities but the level of complexity means the benefits will be hard won.

The latest research from the ESASViews stream - Spotting the Opportunities in Mobile Micro Moments  - delves into this emerging area, examining the challenges, opportunities, key technologies and providers in the market. Eligible subscribers can download the report here. If you don’t have an ESASViews subscription, contact Deborah Seth who will be happy to advise on how to access this service.

*NEW RESEARCH* Trustmarque's services ambitions post Liberata takeover

lLiberata, the public sector-focused business process services (BPS) provider, made a bold move to acquire troubled software reseller and services provider Trustmarque last September, with the backing of PE owner Endless LLP (see here).

lTrustmarque operates as a separate entity today under the existing management, led by CEO Scott Haddow and sales & marketing director Angelo Di Ventura, who we met recently for an update on how business has progressed.

This was not the obvious match for Liberata. But it more than doubled the size of its business, bringing together two companies with combined revenue of c£240m – in software reselling, infrastructure services and BPS.

Trustmarque has made progress under its new owner Liberata. However the challenge will be capitalising on the cross-selling potential as they remain two separate companies.

*NEW Research*: Public Sector Opportunities Bulletin July 2015

Opportunities Bulletin front coverSubscribers to TechMarketView's PublicSectorViews' research stream, can now download the 4th edition of our recently launched Public Sector Opportunities Bulletin. The latest bulletin focuses on SITS supplier opportunities in the health, local government and police sectors. They represent developments that we have picked up in our everyday research and we think are interesting, not just from the perspective of the specific opportunity, but because there are potentially broader implications for the market and its suppliers.

In this edition, we look at the Metropolitan Police Service's search for an integrated operational policing system; at Ireland's plan for a 5-year investment in e-Health; at the Transport for London's network Tower procurement; and at attempts by the Scottish Government to consolidate its datacentre estate. If you are a PublicSectorViews subscriber, you can download the bulletin now, otherwise please contact Deb Seth to find out more.

Have you booked yet?

We are delighted that so many of you have already booked your places at the third annual TechMarketView Presentation & Dinner in September. The event was completely sold out last year and is well on the way to being so again, so if you haven't reserved a place yet don’t leave it until the last minute – book now!

RIBASponsored by Wells Fargo Capital Finance and Avnet Technology Solutions, the event is to be held on 9 September 2015 in London at RIBA, Portland Place from 6pm onwards. 

The theme for this year mirrors TechMarketView’s overarching research theme for 2015 - ‘Joining the Dots’. Top of the agenda will be the opportunities and challenges for technology suppliers as the number of ‘things’, datasets and systems that need to be joined together grows.

During the evening TechMarketView’s analyst team, topped and tailed by Chairman Richard Holway MBE and Managing Partner Anthony Miller, present their latest views on the UK software, IT services and business process services markets. TechMarketView’s research directors will highlight emerging trends, hot new opportunities, growing threats and suppliers worth watching, in their respective fields.

The analyst presentations will be preceded by welcome drinks and followed by a pre-dinner drinks reception and then a sumptuous three course dinner. The event, which is attended by ‘the great and the good’ in UK tech, has been a sell-out for the last two years and the networking opportunities are second to none.

Tickets for the event cost £395+VAT per person for TechMarketView subscription clients and £495+VAT for everyone else. There are also some tables of 10 available on a first come, first served basis.
