*NEW RESEARCH* UK BPS Supplier Ranking 2018

BPS ranking cover

There has been a lot of movement among the Top 20 providers of Business Process Services (BPS) in the past year, reflecting the disruption taking place within a market continuing its move away from traditional BPO towards technology-enabled services.

The shift in delivery models away from ‘lift and shift’ BPO towards tech-enabled BPS is accelerating with platform-based BPS winning an increasing share of the business and with vendors putting ever greater emphasis on partnering, acquiring, building and ‘uncovering’ IP. The blurring of the boundaries between BPS and enterprise software and application services is continuing whilst the deployment of maturing Intelligent Automation solutions is delivering even greater market disruption.

Subscribers to TechMarketView's BusinessProcessViews research services can read the full analysis of who's hot and who's not, and why, in our new report UK BPS Supplier Ranking 2018.

If you are not yet a BusinessProcessViewssubscriber, please contact Deb Seth (dseth@techmarketview.com) to find out how you can access the research.

*New Research* Clanwilliam Group: Ambitious Plans in Healthcare

Clanwilliam Group logoA short time ago TechMarketView caught up with Howard Beggs, CEO of Dublin-based Clanwilliam Group. After acquiring 14 healthcare businesses in the last four years the business shows no signs of slowing down (quite the opposite), so we wanted to learn more.

From Howard’s first step in healthcare technology with Medicom Medical Solutions in 1995, through the launch of Helix Health in 2007 and the acquisition by Eli Global and the creation of Clanwilliam Health in 2014, the business has seen a huge amount of change. Since being acquired by Eli it has grown rapidly through an acquisition strategy that mirrors the “buy-grow-and-hold” approach of its parent company.

As Clanwilliam’s M&A capability matured we saw six deals completed in 2017, including NHS clinical correspondence and dictation business Medisec Software (see Clanwilliam Group acquires another NHS technology provider). Further deals have been completed in 2018, including NHS predictive analytics provider Informatica Systems (see Clanwilliam Group acquires Informatica Systems).

Clanwilliam’s total investment in new businesses since it was acquired by Eli now totals c.€150m, but it’s not resting on its laurels, in fact we can expect to see it ramp up its acquisition ambitions. PublicSectorViews clients can read more about Clanwilliam’s history, strategy, its approach to acquisitions and what it plans to do next, here: Clanwilliam Group: Ambitious Plans in Healthcare.

*NEW RESEARCH* Cyber Security Supplier Ranking 2018

*NEW RESEARCH* Cyber Security Supplier Ranking 2018Sales of enterprise cyber security hardware, software and services again outpaced most other areas of the UK SITS market in 2017/2018.

A combination of GDPR-related data privacy compliance assessments and persistent threats from cyber criminals and state-sponsored hackers kept security top of mind. IT departments invested heavily in the products, services and skills they needed to maintain optimum levels of protection against the data loss, unauthorised access and operational disruption which could bring their organisations to their knees.

But the headline double-digit market growth rate masks uneven fortunes as some suppliers enjoyed a stellar year and others saw their security businesses shrink.

Our latest Cyber Security Supplier Ranking 2018 report rates the performance of the Top 20 players by revenue and analyses the differences in strategy and approach that determined their comparative successes during the year.

The report is available for subscribers to SecureConnectViews to download here: Cyber Security Supplier Ranking 2018.

*NEW RESEARCH* Financial Services SITS Supplier Ranking 2018

coverNot only is the Financial Services sector the most important buyer of Software and IT Services, it is also on the threshold of further major disruption. Many FS enterprises are embarking on significantly more aggressive strategies to digitalise operations, improve customer experience and slash costs. While we don’t expect much net new money to be directed to this epiphany, it will mean a big shift in spending as legacy systems are replaced and as automation revolutionises many processes.

But who are the leading suppliers to the sector today? How big is the gap between the largest players and the next group of would-be leaders?

Interestingly, the top 10 positions in TechMarketView’s annual supplier ranking are occupied by the same companies as last year - but how have their relative positions changed and who actually grew revenue in a tight market?

Several companies lower down the rankings recorded exceptional growth, while others delivered steady progress up the table.

As aspiring companies develop new skills, refresh their partnership strategies and develop deeper customer relationships, they have every chance to move up the ratings. Established players have their work cut out to maintain their positions.

Subscribers to FinancialServicesViews can access our 2018 Financial Services SITS Supplier Ranking report, here. If you want to know who is where in the pecking order and learn how to move your company up the ranking, this report is a must-read.

*NEW RESEARCH* UK Public Sector SITS Supplier Rankings 2018

Report CoverThis year’s edition of the UK Public Sector SITS Supplier Rankings report is now available. Subscribers to TechMarketView’s PublicSectorViews research stream can read our analysis of how the leading software and IT services (SITS) suppliers have performed in the public sector.

The report updates the Top 20 supplier ranking based on revenues from the latest available financial information (as at end of June 2018). It also contains Top 10 rankings for each of the subsectors we track (central government, local government, health, education, police and defence), as well as providing a snapshot of the ‘ones to watch’ from outside of the ranking tables.

Many major suppliers across multiple subsectors had another tough year operating in a market that continues to transition away from legacy contracts to smaller and shorter deals. Four suppliers in the Top 20 experienced double digit declines this year and just two had double digit growth. Only one supplier made in excess of £1bn from UK public sector SITS in its latest financial year. In central government the continued disaggregation of contracts sees a new name take its place at the top of the ranking.

The report is available for download by PublicSectorViews clients, here: UK Public Sector SITS Supplier Rankings 2018.
