TechMarketView is looking for a Customer Services Director
Although it was less than two years since we launched TechMarketView it really has been a great success. We are considered to be one of the most influential analyst firms in the UK. Around 10,000 of the most senior people in the UK SITS sector rely on their daily dose of HotViews. Already our subscribing clients (ie those who pay us real money) represent over 50% of the UK market by revenue and include the leaders like HP, BT, Microsoft.
We are now looking for a person to take charge of our Customer Services which covers everything from generating new sales to looking after our existing client base where our renewal rates are the envy of the industry.
It should be stressed that this is a senior appointment. We are looking for someone with real experience of – and demonstrable success - selling subscription-based research to the UK SITS vendor community. Someone used to operating at the very highest CEO level. Someone driven by the same passion for excellence as the rest of the team. Clearly you’ll need all the communication, organisational, management and technical skills required to operate at this level.
In return, we can offer a really attractive package, the convenience of a virtual working environment and a unique career and personal opportunity to be a part of a small team helping to grow TechMarketView in the future.

Our report John Suffolk to leave Government CIO post on Tuesday got, perhaps, the highest number of comments in other ‘organs’ ever. The Information Age article is pretty typical of the coverage with Tola Sargeant quoted widely. The news had, as most readers will know, been ‘doing the rounds’ for ages. I think we did everyone concerned a public favour by at long last getting the Cabinet Office to confirm what everyone already knew.
We had several quotes in the Financial Times. John O’Brien in Offshore outsourcing – Location, Location Who cares anymore? And Tola, again, in UK Public Sector; Role under scrutiny as spending cuts loom. Anthony Miller contributed to an excellent article in Computerworld – Should I work for an Offshore Outsourcer? This should be read in conjunction to my post below TechMarketView..in the House of Commons.
Finally, I’m always interested to see how far away HotViews is read. My comments Facebook “It’s not email..” made it to the Economic Times of India.
It really is very satisfying to see TechMarketView’s influence growing stronger every week. HotViews is now read by c10,000 CEOs and senior execs in our sector. Judging by our inbox and your comments when we meet face-to-face, our views really do matter and indeed can have a real effect!

I’m off today to celebrate the Prince’s Trust Technology Leadership Group (TLG) raising £10m for the Trust since its inception in 2002.
Since its foundation, the TLG has become the de facto CSR initiative for our sector. Indeed, I ran a check recently and found that companies representing over 75% of the revenues of the UK SITS sector were either Patrons (who contribute over £100K in to the Trust) or Members. The Corporate Patron roll call alone includes Accenture, Atos Origin, Autonomy, BT, Capgemini, CSC, EMC, Ernst & Young, Fujitsu, HP, Microsoft, Oracle and Qualcomm.
The TLG model was so successful that it gave birth to the whole Leadership Group movement at the Trust . First came the Insurance Leadership Group, formed by a TLG member Steve Verrall of Sirius, and then Construction, Women, Sports, Retail, Health & Beauty and, the most recent, the Internet & Media Leadership Group. Together they now contribute about a third of the Trust’s revenues from the private sector and are one sector of the Trust’s fundraising which is still rising in these troubled times.
To name the people who have really ‘made a difference’ to the success of the TLG since 2002 would be to risk major omissions. But, it would never have happened without James Bennett, John O’Connell and the current Chair, Adam Hale. At the Trust, the TLG has been headed by Julian Barrell, Tara Leathers and currently Jamie Webb – all fantastic people that it has been a pure pleasure to work with. Lastly a special word for Lord Young who has leant his special brand of support to this group from Day One.
But the real Success has come from the tens of thousands of really disadvantaged young people that the Trust has helped because of the efforts of the TLG. Lives that have been turned around and put back on the right track by the fantastic work that the Trust does. They are the ones who should Celebrate Success today.

Earlier this morning, in Paywalls Revisited, I was discussing the importance of ‘influence’ for both analysts and journalists alike. I then flicked through my (ironically paper) copy of Computer Weekly to discover I've been voted as one of the ‘Most influential people in UK IT” in Computer Weekly’s IBM UKTech50. Indeed I am the ONLY analyst or commentator – everyone else is a CIO or CEO. List headed by Philip Clarke – CIO @ Tesco and includes the likes of Tim Berners Lee, Jonathan Ive, Mike Lynch, Herman Hauser, John Suffolk, Martha Lane Fox etc. So I’m in quite good company!
This is a complete surprise and thanks to whoever might have put me on that list.
In time honoured fashion, I actually think the award was for TechMarketView as a whole. Clearly and indisputably now THE most influential analyst firm in UK IT!
Footnote - Just as an illustration of TechMarketView's 'influence', we were in the Financial Times twice today/Thursday. Firstly, Anthony Miller's comments on Staff turnover at Logica on the rise and then River Lea shapes up as Silicon Valley. The latter comments on the speech David Cameron is giving today on the establishment of a tech, media and internet centre in East London around the Olympic Park. We covered this last week - see Jeremy Hunt and the importance of Clusters. We will undoubtedly return to the subject - not least 'cos we think it's a great initiative.
