*NEW RESEARCH* Application Services Supplier Ranking 2018

Lower than anticipated market demand last year led to a starker than usual contrast in performance between theCover winners and losers in the Application Services (AS) world. Within the 2017 list of Top 20 UK AS suppliers, as many companies saw their revenues increase by 9% or more as witnessed their sales decline. The necessity to take market share to achieve top line growth has become the new normal in this increasingly competitive arena.

Continuing erosion of legacy services expenditure in 2017 was barely offset by increasing customer investment in “the new”. Moving buyer behaviour on to digital execution at scale remains a key challenge for the supply side. As the boundaries are increasingly broken both between adjacent service towers and into non-traditional, digitally-redefined sectors moreover, so AS suppliers must not only extend the breadth of their capabilities, but also widen the focus of their services to remain market relevant.
