Get your 'LBB' applications in now!

LBB logoWe want to hear from the CEOs of small, privately-held, UK-owned software and IT services companies that are punching above their weight in UK tech for the fifth in our series of Little British Battler (LBB) events, which will be held in London on Wednesday 26 November 2014.

There’s no specific theme for November’s LBB day, but as always we’re particularly keen to hear from innovative SMEs that have an interesting story to tell. Successful applicants from past rounds have been active in a wide variety of fields from big data analytics and business process automation, through to cyber security and the Internet of Things.

As usual we will select twelve CEOs to meet the TechMarketView research team in central London in closed session to present their company and its market propositions. In return we will give unbiased, constructive feedback based on our extensive knowledge and experience of the UK software and IT services market. Each session lasts 50 minutes and there is no fee or commitment involved.

The twelve companies will also be featured in UKHotViews, the most highly regarded and widely read source of opinion and commentary on the UK IT scene, and in a special research report distributed to selected ‘movers and shakers’ in industry and government.

Many of the CEOs who participated in previous Little British Battler events have seen real benefit to their company in terms of increased market visibility and access to new business opportunities (see here for just a sample). This is an unparalleled chance to get your company on the radar of the UK’s premier software and IT services research firm.

Candidate companies must be headquartered in the UK (i.e. not subsidiaries of foreign firms), privately held (though may have accepted external funding), with annual revenues under £25m. Companies must derive the substantial majority of their revenues from software and/or IT services and/or IT-enabled business process services.

If you want to apply, all you have to do is click here and fill in the registration form (you may apply again if you were previously unsuccessful).

The deadline for registrations is this Friday, 17 October, so you need to act quickly. We aim to notify successful applicants by Friday 31 October.

Should you have any questions, please email us at lbb@techmarketview.com.

The TechMarketView Little British Battler programme is run in association with corporate finance firm MXC Capital.

NEW RESEARCH: ESAS Market Trends & Forecasts 2014/15

ImageThe future for Enterprise Software & Application Services (ESAS) is firmly rooted in digital transformation but before the market can bloom, suppliers have the task of unlocking digital spend. Enterprises are predisposed to investment but are held back by uncertainty: about the where to start the journey, where it will take them, the ROI and whether they can access the skills they need.

As always, uncertainty creates opportunities for suppliers but where digital transformation is concerned, capitalising on it requires substantial change. The latest major report from the ESASViews research stream, ESAS Market Trends & Forecasts 2014/15 - The Digital Transformation Journey, analyses the current and future digital impact and the core issues ESAS suppliers have to adjust to, namely low levels of revenue related to digital transformation compared to the overall ESAS market but much higher growth over the coming years - 10%-15% growth in digital investments vs. sub 2% for the overall ESAS market, along with the shift to ‘little and often’ spending and serial projects. Business and go-to-market models also need to change to reflect the new buying environment. Just as digital transformation is about businesses and government being brave enough to do things differently, so suppliers need to be bold enough to think, engage, deliver and price differently.

Eligible subscribers can read the report here, if you’re not part of the TechMarketView community as yet, contact Deborah Seth for information on how to join.

NEW RESEARCH - Can Financial Services lead a return to growth for HP Enterprise Services?

logoWith the announcement of major changes to HP's structure, attention will be focused on the revival of the Enterprise Services division. This report looks at the significant changes that are going on inside the UK Financial Services business which should drive a significant improvement in fortunes. 

TechMarketView considers that revenue in HP’s UK Financial Services business has declined in recent years. HP management is taking action to support this growing sector and as FS firms focus on change we anticipate significant opportunities for HP in areas where it is strong and has scale. Areas such as Infrastructure, payments, security and cloud services are expected to do well. As a result, this operation should be able to play a major role in the return to growth of the wider Enterprise Services division.

Subscribers to FinancialServicesViews can access the report here. If you want to subscribe to the service, please contact Deb Seth of our Client Services team.
