Three and a half years ago the Chancellor George Osborne set out his long-term economic plan in the Emergency Budget. One of the three strands of the plan focused on addressing the problem of unreformed public services. Today’s Autumn Statement highlights how that endeavour is ongoing, and in particular emphasises that the Government commits to “fix the roof when the sun is shining”.
Departments are currently keeping well within their budgets, further cuts are in the plan for some - but not all - public sector orgaisations, and budgets have been allocated to focus attention on certain key issues. In UKHotViewsExtra Georgina O'Toole analyses today's statement and highlights the key takeaways for SITS suppliers to the public sector market.

We are once again looking to recruit an analyst to join the ever-expanding TechMarketView research team.
The ideal candidate will have at least three years’ experience researching the UK IT industry; knowledge of the UK public sector market would be a distinct advantage. Your background could be in market intelligence in an IT supplier or as a tech journalist – or of course as an industry analyst.
You must have proven skills communicating an informed opinion based on your research, both in writing and face to face. Our extensive client list includes top executives in the IT industry, government officials and investors. We hold a privileged position with many of our clients as advisors as much as analysts.
This is a very demanding but highly stimulating role. You must be self-motivated, confident, disciplined, and very deadline-focused. We all work from our own homes but this is not a ‘work at home’ job; you will be spending much of your time out in the market meeting clients, attending company briefings and talking to the media. This also means you should live within an hour or so's commute of central London.
The compensation is very competitive and there is plenty of opportunity for the right candidate to take on more responsibility if they prove their worth. But perhaps the most significant reward is the recognition you get from being part of the most respected name in the UK IT research industry.
If you think you might fit the bill, please email your CV to TechMarketView Managing Partner Anthony Miller.

After announcing impressive full year 2013 results (see Innovation Group breaks £200m revenue mark), we spoke with Andy Roberts, CEO, and Jane Hall, FD of The Innovation Group, to discuss the detail behind the numbers, and where the business is heading as it enters its new 2014 financial year.
TIG is in fact heading into 2014 in a very good position, with a clear focus, a strong balance sheet, and some real momentum.

October and November have proved to be as busy a time as ever for the analyst team at TechMarketView.
In InfrastructureViews, hot on the heels of her Infrastructure Services Market Trends and Forecasts 2013 report research director, Kate Hanaghan, went on to release Mid-market Data Centre Services: Opportunities and Competitors. In this popular report, Kate delves into this highly fragmented market, which consists of a large number of enterprises with different business and technology challenges and is not the single market sector it is often thought to be. In UKHotViewsExtra, Kate covers the story on SCC sets sights on 46% growth.
The PublicSectorViews team has also been busy, publishing four new reports. In Scottish Public Sector SITS Market: Trends & Opportunities research director, Georgina O’Toole and the team look into why this relatively small market has bold ambitions, while in Steria & SSCL: a pivotal deal Georgina looks more closely at the new joint venture with the UK Cabinet Office called Shared Services Connected Ltd (SSCL).
The analysts also caught up with Dell’s UK public sector team and were surprised to find a business that is outperforming the market in many areas. Find out why in Tola Sargeant’s research note: Dell surprises in UK public sector. And finally in Agilisys leverages Blenheim Chalcot relationship, Georgina analyses why Agilisys continues to grow despite an increasingly tough local government outsourcing market. Further to this the PubicSectorViews team also produced UKHotViewsExtra articles; Alliantist gains G-Cloud IL3 accreditation, US healthcare IT woes carry lessons for the UK and BT teams up to join health and care.
In ESASViews, research director Angela Eager, followed on from her two part Market Trends and Forecasts research on the Enterprise Software and Application Services market with the eagerly anticipated ESAS Supplier Landscape 2013/14 report. Then, in SAP Business ByDesign: direction and market impact, Angela looks into why Business by Design is changing form quite radically. For UKHotViewsExtra, Angela writes about Servicing the cloud SMB accountancy market and PE firm Advent International offers €1.17bn for UNIT4.
In BusinessProcessViews, research director John O’Brien, follows on from his key report UK BPS Supplier Rankings & Landscape, 2013, with an in-depth look into the future of Indian HQ’d businesses in his report, What does the future look like for India HQ'd players in UK BPS?. John also writes on UK anomaly Genpact's opportunities and challenges in UK BPS after a recent European analyst even which he attended.
After the much anticipated launch of our latest research stream FinancialServicesViews (FSV), research director Peter Roe, published his core report Financial Services SITS Market Trends and Forecasts 2013. The report presents a heat map of SITS activity, identifying key areas for investment and focus. Keeping busy already, Peter also released Setting the Scene for Mobile Banking in which he looks at what has recently become one of the most exciting areas of the Financial Services industry with the increase in penetration of smartphones driving a revolution in how people bank, buy and pay.
From the Foundation Service stream, you’ll find IndustryViews Corporate Activity - Q3 2013, reporting on the mergers and acquisitions in Q3, the highest since Q4 2006; and IndustryViews Quoted Sector Q3 2013 in which we find out why the aggregate value of UK SITS companies listed on the London stock market (Main and AIM) hit a two-year peak last quarter, reaching £22.3bn. There’s also BrazilViews September 2013, which includes coverage of our managing partner Anthony Miller’s recent trip to the country’s largest tech hub, Porto Digital, in Recife, the state capital of Pernambuco. And in UKHotViewsExtra, Anthony Miller met up with Fouracre – read about it in Clear Books growing with the crowd.
