Unlocking the Intelligence with TechMarketView

Sage company logoThank you so much to everybody who joined us at RIBA last night for the fifth annual Evening with TechMarketView, we hope you enjoyed ‘Unlocking the Intelligence’ as much as we did. We’d particularly like to express our thanks once again to our sponsors Sage, without whom the event wouldn’t have been possible, and to tx2 Events for their flawless event management.

SageAfter a warm welcome from TechMarketView’s Managing Director Tola Sargeant, we heard inspiring words from Alan Laing, Sage’s Managing Director UK & Ireland, and were treated to KidsViews – a look ahead to 2035 through the eyes of today’s 12 year-olds - by TechMarketView Chief Analyst Georgina O’Toole.

Then it was down to business with Kate Hanaghan, Chief Research Officer, and Angela Eager, Research Director for Enterprise Software & Application Services, analysing trends in the sector and warning traditional SITS suppliers that complacency could be fatal. This was followed by TechMarketView’s public sector expert Dale Peters and financial services guru Peter Roe debating the trends in these key verticals, notably their success or otherwise at Unlocking the Intelligence.

RestorWe also heard two contrasting stories of SME success as our very own Martin Courtney interviewed Christian Nagele, now at Autotask but formerly CEO of erstwhile Little British Battler (LBB) CentraStage, and Paul Evans, CEO and co-founder at Great British Scaleup Redstor, about their respective experiences of ‘selling out’ and ‘scaling up’.

And finally, TechMarketView Chairman Richard Holway MBE closed the show with his take on what the future holds – we can look forward to an abundance of AI, transportTech and Missions to Mars amongst other things!
