Our latest review of the venture capital and private equity activity in the UK software and IT services sector, IndustryViews Private Equity, is ready for TechMarketView subscription service clients to download.
Besides the latest data on VC/PE deals from our corporate finance partners Ascendant and Regent, we have interviews with Imperial Innovations’ chief investment officer, Russ Cummings, Fidelity Ventures’ London partner, Simon Clark, and a last-gasp chat with Tim Hames just before he departed the BVCA to work with Commons speaker, John Bercow. And we look further at the controversial question, “Are UK entrepreneurs only in it for the quick buck”?

Indeed, companies responsible for around half of the UK’s SITS revenues are now TechMarketView Foundation Service clients.HotViews is firmly established on the UK scene. The email is sent to thousands everyday and is viewed by around 10,000 people every month. It’s also a major comment source for key media like the FT, the Times and BusinessWeek.And, of course, we have been adding to our team. It’s not just Richard and Anthony anymore. Puni Rajah is our Client Services Director. Philip Carnelley is our Software Research Director and Tola Sargeant is our Research Director with special responsibility for the Public Sector. More new joiners to be announced very soon!TechMarketView is about to get even better!On Monday we launch HotViewsExtra. Each morning HotViews will continue to carry our immediate views on the events of the moment. But, when we have been to the analyst briefings, talked to the CEO or have a more considered view, we will put this exclusively on HotViewsExtra. This is only available to TechMarketView Foundation Service clients who can either access it via the website or request a second HotViewsExtra email which will be sent at around 4.00pm each day.HotViews, HotViewsExtra and our rapidly growing range of research reports (MarketViews, CompanyViews, IndustryViews, OffshoreViews, SoftwareViews and AnalystViews) now form a superb and fully searchable archive library.

TechMarketView is still less than a year old but we are really delighted with its progress. In particular, how TechMarketView has become an 'Agenda setter' - indeed just like we were with the Holway Report.The first report in our new SoftwareViews research stream - on the State of the UK HQed Software Industry - has created great press coverage and favourable comment.

It’s been one of our busiest periods ever for new research from TechMarketView.
SoftwareViews – our new research stream – was launched with Philip Carnelley's report on the State of the UK HQed Software Industry. See TechMarketView launches new Software Research Programme. We are very pleased with its reception. It created some great media coverage including BusinessWeek – See British Software Industry is still Alive.
IndustryViews. We published the IndustryViews Quoted Sector Q3 2009 Review. IndustryViews also includes quarterly reports on M&A and Private Equity funding.
AnalystViews. Tola Sargeant, our new Research Director and one of the UK’s leading experts on IT in the Public Sector, produced two new AnalaystViews on the UK Public Sector 2010 – Threats and Opportunities.
- In Public sector spending cuts: Which contracts are at risk? Tola identifies over £26b worth of major UK public sector SITS contracts at risk of cancellation, curtailment or ‘de-scoping’, and calls out the suppliers most exposed.- In UK Public Sector 2010: Spotting the opportunities, we tell you the good news. Tola identifies the many opportunities for SITS suppliers to the UK public sector market in 2010 and where to find them. This research features Tola’s unique ‘heat map’ showing at a glance where the opportunities are and which are the hottest.
Since the launch of TechMarketView in April 2009, we have attracted a superb group of paying subscribers including HP and Microsoft. Indeed, companies representing around 50% of the revenues of the SITS sector in the UK are now paying subscribers.
Only paying subscribers get access to our full research programme – including the reports listed above. Our subscriptions are ‘per company’ not ‘per user’. So the cost of providing this invaluable research to All your employees is extremely modest. Can you really afford to be ‘out of the loop?”.
Just email Puni on firstname.lastname@example.org and could soon be enjoying the privileges of being a TechMarketView subscriber.
