PublicSectorViews is led by Chief Analyst Georgina O’Toole (middle), Managing Director Tola Sargeant (left) and Research Director Dale Peters (right). Georgina is well-known for her in-depth knowledge of all aspects of the UK public sector market with a particular interest in developments across Whitehall and Tola’s research focus is on healthcare.

Our in-depth coverage of the UK public sector SITS market enables organisations to plan their approach to the market based on realistic forecasts and easy-to-read market trend analysis that offers a consistent view of the UK market as a whole (public and private sector). TechMarketView’s analysis also supports your efforts to identify short term and long term areas of opportunity and respond to market threats pre-emptively. Our opinionated coverage of SITS suppliers, large and small, public and private, is invaluable for competitor analysis as well as for identifying and evaluating potential partners or investment opportunities.

Daily comment and analysis

Subscribers to PublicSectorViews read our analysis of developments in the UK public sector IT market as they happen in our news-driven research, UKHotViews and UKHotViewsExtra, which are delivered via email. Our UKHotViews archive contains over 5,000 articles and we’re adding to it every day with opinion-rich pieces that are easy to read and quickly get to the nub of the issue. Searching the archives enables you to rapidly build up a picture of SITS supplier activity in the sector and keep up-to-date with key changes in government strategy or policy.

Ground-breaking reports

PublicSectorViews subscribers also have access to all TechMarketView’s public sector-focussed research reports and analyst notes. These include our ‘flagship’ UK Public Sector SITS Market Trends and Forecasts report and the UK Public Sector SITS Supplier Landscape report. Throughout the year, TechMarketView also publishes a series of reports focused on market trends and the supplier landscape in particular subsectors of the UK public sector: central government, local government, education, health, police and defence.

Accurate forecasts

For our market sizing and forecasts, we segment the market by both subsector (central government, local government, education, health, police and defence) and by SITS market activity as defined by TechMarketView’s Asset Led Market Model (infrastructure services, application services, business process services and software), as well as combining the two. As such, subscribers will find detailed market size and forecast data, along with detailed analysis of performance and prospects, for each of the UK public sector sub-segments, enabling them to focus effort and investment on the areas of the market with the highest growth potential.

Investigating ‘hot topics’

In addition to this core research, the PublicSectorViews team produces ad hoc research reports and analyst notes on ‘hot topics’ throughout the year. Through these we have the flexibility to address issues that are important to our subscribers as they arise, providing timely insight and analysis. Topics covered over the last few months include the progress and direction of UK Government ICT Strategy, an analysis of offshore suppliers to the UK public sector, and a review of shared services in local government. Our public sector analysts also author CompanyViews notes – short reports that take an in-depth look at a supplier’s strategy in the UK government or healthcare markets.

An approachable team

As a subscriber to PublicSectorViews, our public sector analysts are happy to support your business by answering enquiries on our existing research either via email or in a short phone call. Many subscribers find the ability to chat directly to the analysts and ask the questions that really matter to them, an invaluable resource.

Custom engagements

TechMarketView subscribers also benefit from preferential pricing and scheduling of custom engagements with our public sector team. Both Tola and Georgina are frequently called upon to work with clients in tailored workshops or ‘sounding board’ sessions, providing independent input to the strategic decision making process. They also welcome the opportunity to present our view of the UK public sector SITS market in person at Board meetings, sales conferences, marketing events and the like.
