We’ve been looking through every issue of IndustryViews Quoted Sector since we launched TechMarketView three years ago and can’t find another quarter where the performance of the major tech-related indices has been quite so depressing. With the exception of Mobile Telecom, every other index that we track was down compared to the prior quarter. If we wanted to put a positive gloss on the numbers, we could at least point out that the UK IT indices fared less worse than Nasdaq or the FTSE 100, but you’d have to be a fully paid-up member of the ‘glass half full’ brigade to take any cheer from that!
So don’t expect to find heaps of good news stories about the fortunes of UK quoted software and IT services companies in the latest edition of IndustryViews Quoted Sector. But you will find all the usual comparisons of share performance with European, US and Indian players and of course the latest update on the Dearly Departed and New Arrivals.

We are absolutely delighted to announce that Phil Codling has joined TechMarketView in the newly created position of Research Director for Infrastructure Services.
Many of you will know Phil from his tenure at Ovum, where in latter times he led our predecessor business, Ovum Holway. Phil took a break from the industry in 2008 to do good works at the Guide Dogs for the Blind Association, and rejoins the team (well, that’s how we like to think of it) to launch exciting new research on the UK infrastructure services market.
We’ll be (re-)introducing Phil to TechMarketView clients just as quickly as we can, but until then you’ll be able to read his analysis and opinions on the sector in UKHotViews very soon. You can read more about Phil in About Phil Codling on our website.

Over recent weeks, TechMarketView has published a rich and varied selection of reports and analyst notes. One particular highlight is John O’Brien’s 2011 report on the UK Business Process Services Supplier Landscape. In the report, our research director for business process services (BPS) reveals the Top 20 suppliers to the UK BPS market, examines how the supplier landscape is changing and analyses the strengths and weaknesses of the leading players.
We’ve also published a string of CompanyViews and UKHotViewsExtra notes that shine the spotlight on suppliers of interest. These include John’s analysis of Xerox some eighteen months after the acquisition of BPS player ACS in Xerox’s challenges and opportunities post ACS.

In UK Government ICT Strategy: Progress and direction, we commented on the Cabinet Office’s launch of the Innovation Launchpad (see here). Through the Innovation Launchpad, Stephen Allott, Crown Representative for SMEs in the Cabinet Office, invited SMEs to pitch their business proposals for products and services to deliver better value for money for Government. By the end of the submission phase, the Innovation Launchpad had received a total of 351 proposals.
Australian-headquartered Objective Corporation, provider of content, collaboration and process management solutions exclusively for the public sector, was just one of the SMEs to submit a proposal. We recently met up with the management team from Objective: Founder and CEO, Tony Walls; UK GM Simon Etherington; and non-executive Director, Nick Kingsbury. Subscribers to PublicSectorViews can read more in our latest report: Objective Corporation: Finding a way into Whitehall.
