*New Research* Public Sector Opportunities Bulletin

Maknig Tax Digital Our ninth UK Public Sector Opportunities Bulletin leads with an analysis of potential opportunities related to HMRC’ Making Tax Digital programme. Our analysis coincides with the HMRC’s launch of six consultations, the results of which will shape the initiative. In the bulletin, we consider the challenges that the programme might face; we do this my comparing and contrasting the issues faced by the other large digital transformation programme in UK Government: Universal Credit. At the beginning of September, the Institute for Government (IfG) published a fascinating review of the Universal Credit programme, highlighting various hurdles, some of which have been overcome, some of which continue to hamper progress. Our analysis concludes that ‘Making Digital Tax’ starts with a better foundation. But, won’t there always be some challenges that are inherent in the sector, due to the nature of Government and politics?

Sunderland CouncilOur second article may come as a surprise, focusing on a scrapped procurement. We switch our attentions to local government, where local authorities are increasingly accepting that radical transformation is the only way they will get through the next few stormy years. Yet, Sunderland Council has failed to find a transformational partner that can meet its demands. It appears the opportunities are there for grabbing, but suppliers aren’t evolving sufficiently, in terms of their propositions, partnerships and commercial innovations, to convince some local authorities of their suitability. What more can they do?

PublicSectorViews subscribers can read our analysis by downloading September's Public Sector Opportunities Bulletin now. If you can't get access, find out how to rectify the matter by contacting Deb Seth within our Client Services team - she will be more than happy to help.

*NEW RESEARCH* Investors rattled as Capita issues profit warning

lUnsurprisingly, we've had a lot of interest in Capita's first-ever profits warning (see Capita dives on first-ever profit warning). It's a real shock for the UK SITS market leader to not hit the numbers, and something that might put their long-held Holway Boring award at risk. 

Capita is facing a perfect storm of problem contracts (TfL and Co-Op Bank), underperforming businesses (reselling and recruitment), along with contract slippage and fierce competition. Oh, and of course, Brexit. This is all making for a really testing time for the UK SITS market leader. Indeed, Capita's shares are now off over a quarter from where they were before the announcement - an unprecedented one-day drop.

Following the management and investor call, we now have a good view on what are the real issues at play. Subscribers to TechMarketView's research services can read the full analysis in UKHotViewsExtra here.

Lumeon: Lighting the way in healthcare automation

Lumeon logoBusiness process automation (BPA) is now a well-recognised disruptor in the software & IT services market, but have you heard of Care Pathway Automation (CPA)? It has the potential to radically improve the way that healthcare is delivered, cutting costs and improving service.

UK digital health SME Lumeon is on a mission to define a market for CPA in the UK and internationally with its innovative Care Pathway Management platform. We recently met up with the management team to learn more about the company, which was founded by Robbie Hughes ten years ago, and CPA.

*NEW RESEARCH* Infrastructure Services Trends & Forecasts

This month we launch our latest round of analysis and forecasts for the UK Infrastructure Services market. The research covers Operations (including outsourcing), Provisioning (Hosting and IaaS/PaaS), Consulting, Installation & Integration, and Support & Maintenance.mtf

Subscribers to InfrastructureViews can access the report here: Infrastructure Services: UK Market Trends & Forecasts, 2016-2017 (by Kate Hanaghan, Research Director).

The overall Infrastructure Services market registered a slight decline in 2015, with some areas of the market declining by mid-single digits. However, the Infrastructure-as-a-Service and Platform-as-a-Service markets continue to grow significantly, which will help return the overall market to growth.   

We believe infrastructure services providers will play a crucial role in enabling the digitisation of the enterprise. The underlying infrastructure (e.g. networks, processing, storage) is the platform for the emerging software and services that will fuel the digital enterprise and will therefore be an investment priority for many CIOs.

However, cloud and the digitisation of processes and services will both drive and suppress overall IS market growth at the same time. On the one hand it will draw new investment into the market but by the same token we will see cannibalisation of traditional outsourcing services and an increase in automation leading to cheaper IT services and consequently lower revenue.

We maintain our view that the transition to a hybrid IT model that requires significant and strategic IT spend will take years to materialise in many mainstream organisations. It is a highly complex task that requires time and effort. Furthermore, Brexit could serve to delay decision-making by knocking the confidence of those just starting to explore the strategic possibilities of cloud.

In Infrastructure Services: UK Market Trends & Forecasts, 2016-2017 we explore the interconnected themes they are driving the market and examine the opportunities for suppliers as they look to navigate these complex waters.

*New Research*: Oracle and Salesforce stock up on AI/machine learning

LogoThis week has been a feast for machine learning and AI watchers as Oracle and Salesforce fought to take prime position on the menu, and Microsoft Research chipped in with news of its Hanover project.

logoFirst there was Salesforce’s Einstein announcement on the eve of Oracle’s major OpenWorld conference. Then Oracle joined in with a host of AI and machine learning demos and announcements, from its chatbot platform to Adaptive Intelligence Applications. And Microsoft Research reminded us of the big jobs machine learning can be applied to.

The key takeaway - these advanced techniques are becoming mainstream so suppliers need to be on board with this disruptive wave. Subscribers can read our analysis of the activity from the week in HotViewsExtra, here

Capita aims to transform Adult Social Services with ChooseCare launch

Capita logoCapita is hoping to transform the way that adult social care services are provisioned - and in time some healthcare services – with the launch of its ChooseCare platform this summer. ChooseCare is a business unit in its own right at Capita, nestled amongst other digital health services in the Local Government, Health and Property division. The team has worked agilely to co-develop the ChooseCare platform over the last year with Capita’s flagship local authority partner Barnet Council.

The platform combines Amazon-like functionality for the procurement of Health & Care services with PayPal-like functionality that enables ‘consumers’ and their families to buy the services they need using Direct Payment funding from their local authority, or, in due course, with Personal Health Budgets or self-funding. ChooseCare is now being piloted by two different local authorities and Capita is in advanced discussions with a number of others with a view to full market availability in 2017.

TechMarketView subscription clients can read the full story, and more on how ChooseCare fits with evolving market trends and the supplier landscape, in today’s UKHotViewsExtra article: Capita launches ChooseCare to transform adult social services.

* New Research* Trends and Drivers in the UK Network Connectivity and Services Market

In the rush to optimise their application and service delivery UK organisations cannot afford to overlook the single most important enabling element in the entire ecosystem: the underlying network infrastructure which binds the new cloud-connected world of fixed and mobile devices together.

As such we don't think that ongoing demand for LAN, WAN, WiFi and cellular connectivity upgrades, management and implementation advice is in any doubt - enough by volume to keep SITS suppliers, network service providers and mobile operators equally busy anyway.

But whilst it can be struggle to make big profits from bandwidth alone as competition, price pressure and regulation takes its toll, the network can still be a conduit to greater gains elsewhere, particularly when it comes to upselling value added services around cloud hosting, data security and next generation unified communications.

TechMarketView launched a new research stream, SecureConnectViews, which analyses the increasingly close integration between supplier networking, cloud and data security portfolios, earlier this year.

Our latest report – Trends and Drivers in the UK Network Connectivity and Services Market – explores these themes and identifies areas of the market that offer the best opportunities for suppliers looking to provision network services to public and private sector organisations. It is available for subscribers to download here.

Atos applies ‘100 Minds’ to innovation Centres

LogoA recent session with Atos provided a glimpse into how its innovation operations are developing. For Atos they have a practical base. Rather than promoting blue sky thinking, its Business Technology & Innovation Centres (BTIC) blend a consulting approach with SI capabilities to ensure blue sky thoughts come back down to earth and generate projects that create tangible and rapid results for clients (e.g. from conversation to a tool in days/weeks) - and revenue for Atos.

Given the proliferation of innovation labs across the supplier landscape and their importance in building digital credibility and supplier differentiation, the ‘how’ of their operation is all important. In the HotViewsExtra analysis “Atos applies ‘100 Minds’ to Innovation Centre- Extended Version” which can be accessed here, we look at the Atos approach to its BTICs and the role of crowdsourcing via its ‘100 Minds’ approach.

*** NEW RESEARCH *** Down, down, down go IPPs

picEarlier this year, Indian software and services industry association Nasscom predicted that offshore services growth in FY17 (to 31st March 2017) would be in the 10-12% range. But going by the results of the Top Six Indian Pure-Plays (IPPs), this is looking more and more like a triumph of hope over reality.

The latest edition of the new-look OffshoreViews shows just how far off Nasscom’s target the Top Six really are – and the direction of travel does not inspire confidence.

And what about IPP endeavours to 'break linearity' and decouple revenue growth from headcount growth? Our startling predictions will frighten the horses!

Plus there’s our graphics-heavy IPP SnapShots for each of the Top Six IPPs, along with new summary sections on the mid-tier players and notable IPP corporate activity.

*NEW RESEARCH* Trends and Drivers in the UK Enterprise Cyber Security Market

It may be an exaggeration to say that UK IT departments are running scared of the rapidly growing cyber security threat but there’s no doubt that nerves are jangling as the volume of attacks being detected continues to rise (just ask GCHQ).

Public and private sector organisations alike are engaged in a constant race to update their IT infrastructure, applications and devices against new strains of malware and attack patterns, an going trend which is seeing SITS suppliers large and small (see Corero, Mimecast, FireEye and Sophos) reap rich dividends.

TechMarketView launched a new research stream, SecureConnectViews, which analyses the increasingly close integration between supplier cloud, networking and data security portfolios earlier this year.

Our latest report – Trends and Drivers in the UK Enterprise Cyber Security Market –documents current security buying and implementation initiatives, market drivers and forthcoming data protection regulation. It is available for subscribers to download here.

*NEW RESEARCH*: Hireserve and breatheHR Snapshots

LogoWith so many businesses citing access to skills as one of their challenges, the ability to manage the workforce effectively is becoming more pressing, particularly among SMEs. One of the consequences is a rise in demand for SaaS HR solutions suitable for smaller businesses – and the sector is getting busier and more competitive. In the latest in our series of supplier Snapshots we examine two up and coming providers in the sector: breatheHR and Hireserve.

logobreatheHR is emerging as a small but increasingly viable HR software provider to the UK small business sector, while Hireserve with its SaaS applicant tracking solution is a small player with specialist capability that is interestingly positioned to target both in-house recruiting departments and third-party recruiting firms.

What is emerging from our Snapshot series is the scope for these SME’s to work with each other to extend their range of accessible functionality and broaden their appeal (e.g. moving beyond the ‘one product company’ model) via an ecosystem of similarly sized business. That point is particularly important because it provides a safe environment to develop and thrive.

TechMarketView subscribers can downloaded the Hireserve Snapshot here; and the breatheHR Snapshot here. If you’re not a subscriber, contact Deb Seth for information on how to change that.

TechMarketView's Presentation and Dinner last night

There is a much used term in surfing – “You should have been here yesterday’. That most certainly applies to those who didn’t manage to attend TechMarketView’s annual presentation and dinner last night entitled ‘Surfing the Waves of Disruption’

It was a sell out – again – and the feedback has been universally positive. A Big Thankyou to all the TechMarketView team – in particular those on stage – for a great evening. Also to the two Tinas at tx2 for their flawless event management and our Silver Sponsor – Wells Fargo – and Gold Sponsor – Netsuite. (BTW – If you would like to sponsor next year’s show, please let us know soonest as we have already had several serious expressions of interest)

And, of course, to all the attendees last night for their support. What struck me the most was the fantastic ‘buzz’ at the drinks reception and dinner. Indeed difficult to get people to leave! TechMarketView really values its relationships and last night it was shown to be reciprocated by our customers.

Finally, we will be sending out copies of the slides to all attendees next week.

Three days left to book the UK tech event of the year!

You've very little time left to book a seat for the fourth annual ‘Evening with TechMarketView’, this year sponsored by NetSuite.

Once again we're heading for a sell-out, so don't miss the chance to mix with the broadest range of UK-focused tech execs you are likely to find in one place at one time.

Plus you get to hear from TechMarketView's top analysts on the prospects for the UK market and its many players in the context of our theme for the year, Surfing the Waves of Disruption, along with an interview with the CEO of one of our 'disruptive' Little British Battler companies.

The Evening with TechMarketView takes place next Thursday 8th September at the Royal Institute of British Architects (RIBA) in Portland Place, London. Registration opens at 6:15 for a prompt start at 7:00 pm  (yes, we close the doors!).

And once the TechMarketView team has spent an hour filling your head with insights, we will then satisfy your gastronomic needs with a lavish dinner, preceded by a drinks reception, sponsored by Wells Fargo.

More details below, and you can book by clicking here.

You'll kick yourself if you miss it!
