TechMarketView’s Top Ten Tech Predictions

Today TechMarketView launches its Top Ten Tech Predictions for 2022, compiled by our TechSectorViews analyst team.

Drawing on our research theme for next year, Building Resilience, the Predictions consider the role of new and emerging technology in supporting the drive for greater resilience. Resiliency relates to many factors, and ensuring an organisation is ‘fit for the future’ is not an overnight task; and it is not just about technology, but purpose and people too.  front cover

The Predictions consider some of the most pressing challenges facing the market, including governance, skills, and supply chain restraints, and explain how some of these issues might be resolved. There are broader challenges too, such as the sustainability imperative and how approaches such as Augmented Intelligence are contributing to the humanisation of tech.  

From the second half of 2020, we saw a bounce back in Software and IT Services spend as organisations responded accordingly having emerged from the response phase of the pandemic. What the pandemic has not done is halt the focus many firms have on growth. Indeed, TechMarketView’s analysis of 2021 data - combined with our work with tech buyers - indicates that it has been a bumper year for the SITS market. 

However, behind the scenes, some organisartions are ‘unpicking’ certain approaches rapidly put in place as an immediate response to the lockdowns and pandemic. More generally, consideration is being given to resiliency in its broadest sense (tech and non-tech) - including important issues such as social value, long-term skills development, excellence in customer experience, data literacy, and cyber safety. These remain ongoing challenges that many will endeavour to tackle in 2022.

TechSectorViews clients can read the Predictions in full here: Top Ten Tech Predictions 2022.

On Thursday and Friday we publish our Predictions for the Financial Services and Public Sector verticals respectively.

*NEW RESEARCH* OffshoreViews Q3 2021 Review

Attrition among every single one of the top-tier Indian Heritage Providers (IHPs) rocketed last quarter as a combination of a ramp in client demand coupled with a work-from-home induced slump in employee loyalty saw staff walking out the virtual door at record levels.

In the latest edition of OffshoreViews, we look at attrition and hiring trends among the offshore services ‘majors’.

OffshoreViews also includes our regular summary of the top-tier and mid-tier IHP reporting season, along with insightful charts showing multiyear trends for the Top Tier players and an clickable index to relevant UKHotViews posts.

Building Resilience: Predictions for 2022

For almost two years, we have all had to sustain a level of personal and business resilience beyond anything we ever expected. So many of us have ‘dug deep’ and, indeed, continue to press on through the uncertainties as we approach the end of one year and the start of another.

In business, corporate resilience took on a new meaning in 2021. In sectors such as travel and hospitality, we saw incredible innovation and collaboration as businesses sought to bring revenue streams back to life - unaware of when ‘normality’ might return. Meanwhile in Government, the nation’s resilience was tested as the economy was disrupted, supply chains were impacted, and systems, procedures and processes were placed under incredible strain. tease

After such an experience, we cannot expect a return to the way things were. Furthermore, we expect - and indeed urge - organisations to re-assess their modus operandi and examine the ways in which they can infuse greater resilience across the board.

TechMarketView’s Research Theme for 2022 is Building Resilience. Resiliency has many aspects, and our theme reflects the need to prepare not only for low-probability, high-impact events (such as a pandemic) but for the day-to-day as well. Over the course of 2022, we expect this increased focus on resilience to result in an increased reliance on technology in decision making, in the design of new offerings, in the delivery of goods and services, and in internal and external communications. As such, tech suppliers will find themselves at the heart of ensuring organisations are fit for the future.

Against this backdrop - and starting from tomorrow - TechMarketView will be releasing its Predictions for 2022. Clients will be able to read both our broad market Top Ten Predictions, and our specific Predictions for both the Public Sector and the Financial Services sector. Stay tuned this week…..

*NEW RESEARCH* Merger and acquisition activity in the UK SITS sector rises again in Q3

q3 2021 corporate activity graphicMerger and acquisition activity in the UK software and IT services (SITS) sector rose again in Q3 2021, according to data from technology investment banSilverpeak. There were 123 acquisitions by and 140 sales of UK companies, up from 100 and 122 respectively in Q2 and on a par with the previous peak of 114 and 141 respectively in Q1.

As discussed in our Q2 2021 report, the dip seen in Q2 was likely due to deals having been accelerated in Q1 in anticipation of changes to the Capital Gains Tax (CGT) regime in the March budget, which in the end did not come to pass. That led to speculation of changes in the October budget, which may in turn have driven deals higher again in Q3.
