*New Research* Trade finance emerges as blockchain's new sweet spot

BlockchainIt's around a decade since blockchain first came to the attention of the mainstream IT community and many have spent the intervening years looking for a problem for blockchain to solve. Now in 2019, perspectives have matured considerably and the previous era of unbridled hype and unfulfilled expectation has meant that the “gold rush” of speculative projects is a thing of the past.

Despite the relative lack of noise in public, there has been a great deal of activity around blockchain and distributed ledger technology (DLT) within the financial services industry of late. However, much of the recent development has effectively been going on “behind closed doors”. 

Whilst blockchain’s greatest, long term benefits, are likely to be realised when it is applied in conjunction with other transformational technologies, one area of the financial services value chain has come to the fore recently as a sweet spot for the application of this technology.

*NEW RESEARCH* UK SITS buyers slump to 18-month low

chartMerger and acquisition activity in the UK software and IT services (SITS) sector remained strong in Q3 but at a lower level than in the previous quarter as UK buyers undertook the lowest number of transactions since Q1 2018. Demand for IT services companies dropped to 38% of all UK SITS deals, as demand for software businesses surged.

*NEW RESEARCH* UK SITS indices fall as global tensions grow

CHARTUK tech stocks had mixed fortunes during Q3 as international trade tensions and talk of a global slowdown weighed on shares.

The FTSE SCS index, a proxy for UK listed software and IT services (SITS) companies, was the worst performer in the UK tech sector with a 17% fall. Micro Focus was a major contributor to the drop with its shares falling 45% in the quarter following a profit warning (see here).

The FTSE Telecom indices faired better, boosted by a 25% gain by Vodafone which lifted the FTSE Mobile index by 24% but stock price falls from BT and other fixed line providers resulted in a 9% drop in the FTSE Fixed Line index and limited the FTSE Telecom index to a 13% gain.

In the broader stock markets, the FTSE 100 was down very slightly (0.2%) as was the Nasdaq index (down 0.6%).

*UKHotViewsExtra* O'Connor and Trad3r look to change the rules

GianniFollowing the news earlier this week that UK startup, Trad3r, had successfully raised around £1.2m in new funding from a group of respected angel investors (see: Trad3r secures £1.2m cash boost), I caught up with the company’s charismatic young founder and CEO, Gianni O’Connor (pictured).

O’Connor is an extremely bright and enthusiastic individual with something of an infectious personality. In addition to his obvious energy and intellect, he is driven in part by altruistic sentiment, coupled with a healthy disrespect for the status quo. O’Connor hopes that Trad3r may help transform attitudes to financial services, both inside and outside of the established investment community.

The Trad3r app, which was launched in 2016, aims to broaden the appeal of trading to a wider audience by gamifying the stock market experience. Trad3r enables its users to gain their first experience of trading in an entertaining, low risk environment via innovative asset classes that are appealing to its target audience. As well as buying and selling traditional stocks, Trad3r enables users to trade other “virtual” commodities such as celebrities and footballers. Successful trading is rewarded with incentives such as points and prizes, as well as hard cash.

The 26-year old Londoner already has another successful startup under his belt, in the form of innovative free music streaming and social media app Micsu. O’Connor launched Micsu in 2013 whilst studying for a degree at Coventry University and first visualised the base code that was key to its success whilst sitting a mid-term exam.

Over £6K raised for GOSH!

RBC_Race for the Kids_Team celebratioWe did it!

A TechMarketView team consisting of Managing Director, Tola Sargeant, Chief Analyst, Georgina O’Toole, and Research Director, Marc Hardwick, along with our families, completed the RBC Race for the Kids 5k for Great Ormond Street Hospital (GOSH), on a very wet Saturday in Hyde Park over the weekend…

Our times ranged from a brilliant 24 minutes for the older boys – William and Josh – to a very respectable 56 minutes for Thomas, as he tackled the 5k on his first prosthetic leg. It brought home to us how much extra energy is required running on a prosthetic (apparently 60% extra!), and how much more you need to concentrate on your breathing and technique. Thomas is determined to become a Paralympian one day (he just can’t decide on which sport yet...) so he’ll be working on improving over the coming months and years!

We are overwhelmed by the support we have received from family, friends, clients, UKHotViews readers and social media followers. The generosity exhibited has been amazing. The total raised is still edging up but we have, so far, raised £6,330.21 from 108 extremely kind supporters. Thank you! An astounding amount that makes getting soaked to the skin all worthwhile!

There is still time to donate to help give other children the same wonderful care and support that Thomas has received at Great Ormond Street Hospital over the last decade. Here’s the link:

*NEW RESEARCH* Advanced: Developments and Differentiation

logoThe recent £2bn vote of confidence in Advanced by existing investor Vista Equity Partners and new investor BC Partners was the latest in a series of developments that have enabled the company to expand and grow its own confidence levels. 


Our latest research assesses the progress Advanced has made under CEO Gordon Wilson (who was recently named by The Telegraph as one of the UK's 50 most ambitious leaders) and his team, as they transform and grow this UK HQ’d company.

 “Advanced: Developments and Differentiation is available for TechMarketView subscribers to download.

The bigger picture is that the Advanced story provides a view into the priorities and types of changes suppliers need to undertake, particularly software providers serving the mid-market: from in-house development, acquisitions and industry depth, to cloud transition and partner ecosystems. While dealing with these multiple moving parts, suppliers also need to identify what they are really good at - and have the discipline to stick with it.

*UKHotViewsExtra* Liberata – getting “match-fit for digital”

LiberataFollowing on from Liberata’s renewal of its key contract with the London Borough of Bromley announced just a few days ago we spent some time with Chief Exec, Charlie Bruin to get a more detailed sense of what has been happening “under the bonnet” at the BPS specialist.

It’s just over three years since Liberata was acquired by Japanese BPO outfit Outsourcing Inc (OSI), with the new owner willing to take a longer-term view than the previous Private Equity owners. The Liberata acquisition has always been part of a wider OSI strategy of diversify away from the cyclical nature of the Japanese economy. As a consequence, Liberata is being given the luxury of being able to invest to future-proof its business, whilst accepting a short-term impact with a view to delivering sustainable medium to long-term UKHotViews Premiumgrowth. 

Subscribers to TechMarketView’s in-depth research streams and UKHotViews Premium service can read a detailed account of how Liberata has been getting itself “match-fit for digital” - here

*UKHotViewsExtra* Carbon Black forms spine of new VMware Security Business

*UKHotViewsExtra* Carbon Black forms spine of new VMware Security BusinessWith regulators having approved VMware’s offer for cloud native endpoint security specialist Carbon Black, the US$2.1bn acquisition is set to close in January next year in time for the end of the buyer’s financial year.

The combination of the two companies looks likely to propel VMware into our Top 20 Cyber Security Suppliers Ranking in 2020, which means a new source of powerful competition for rivals targetting the same MSSP and enterprise markets.

So we thought it was worth taking a more detailed look at what VMware intends to do with Carbon Black in terms of integrating their respective portfolios, embarking on joint product/service innovation and devising a fresh go to market strategy, both here in the UK and elsewhere.*UKHotViewsExtra* Carbon Black forms spine of new VMware Security Business

TechMarketView for GOSH: The countdown is on!

Thomas at GOSHThe countdown is on!

There’s only four days to go until TechMarketView’s Chief Analyst Georgina O’Toole, along with her sons William (14) and Thomas (10) will be taking part in the RBC Race for the Kids. And she’s absolutely delighted that some of the TechMarketView team – Tola Sargeant, our Managing Director, and Marc Hardwick, Research Director – will be participating with their families too.

The 5k sponsored run (or jog, or walk, or wheel!) is in aid of Great Ormond Street Hospital Children’s Charity. Some of you of you will already be aware that Georgina’s younger son (pictured) has been under the care of the Orthopaedic Department at Great Ormond Street Hospital for much of his life… indeed coinciding with Georgina’s time with TechMarketView.

Most recently the hospital supported Thomas and the rest of the O’Toole family through the difficult decision to have Thomas’ leg amputated. Without the whole-child and whole-family care of this wonderful hospital, the journey could have been so much harder.

Georgina has always spoken highly of the hospital for the amazing care it gives, thanks to the fantastic staff and facilities. Now TechMarketView is looking to raise some money to support the charity and make a difference to other children being treated there.

Thomas will be completing the 5K on his new prosthetic leg. Considering he only underwent his amputation in June, and only received his new leg in the middle of August, that is pretty impressive! And surely worth a few pounds’ donation?

GOSH_RBC_Race for the Kids_logoWe have set up a JustGiving page for donations – TechMarketView for GOSH - so please consider digging as deep as you can to support this very worthy cause.

$44m to help Tide ride the SME banking wave

TideUK challenger bank, Tide, has secured an additional $44m via a funding round led by a major Japanese investor. The latest cash injection has come via a funding round led by Softbank spin-off SBI (Strategic Business Innovator Group) and supported by existing investor Augmentum.

Tide is one of an increasing number of providers targeting the small business banking sector in the UK (see: CGI partners with SME focused FinTech Ordo). In recent months there have been several new entrants launching their own banking offerings aimed specifically at this previously underserved segment (see: Scottish banking startup selects Temenos and revverbank selects Finastra for core banking).

The latest investment takes the total raised by Tide to date to more than $200m. The bank intends to use the cash to fuel its expansion efforts, as it seeks to establish scale in this increasingly competitive space. The impressive array of services now available to SMEs, after years of neglect by the established players, is clearly testament to the benefits of increased competition and the Open Banking reforms off the back of PSD2.

Finch lands at DXC as tech giant seeks to improve HR

FinchFollowing the recent move to replace Mike Lawrie as its CEO (see: Salvino replaces Lawrie as CEO at DXC Technology) DXC Technology has announced the appointment of another new member of its senior leadership team.

In his first major appointment since taking the helm in September, DXC's new CEO, Mike Salvino, has installed Mary Finch (pictured) as the company’s new Chief Human Resources Officer (CHRO). Like Salvino, Finch is a former Accenture senior executive with impeccable credentials. She spent more than 14 years with the company, where she served as Chief Operations Officer for Global Human Resources. Most recently as the CHRO of AECOM, Finch transformed human resources by implementing a global talent strategy, incorporating new performance and productivity tools, coupled with training and development, career progression and workforce engagement initiatives.

Finch holds a degree in accounting and business management from Miami University. In 2016 she received the accolade of Most Powerful and Influential Women from the California Diversity Council. She is also a founding member of Her Story, an organization focused on improving the lives of single mothers and committed to helping people living in survival mode around the world by improving safety, health, income, and education. Via her involvement in Her Story, Finch is one of 20 female leaders funding homes for single mothers in El Salvador.

Finch replaces DXC’s former Chief of Staff, Jo Mason, who had presided over DXC’s global HR function since the company’s formation in 2017 and, alongside ex-CEO Mike Lawrie, had held a similar role at antecedant CSC. DXC’s approach and effectiveness in respect of human resources and talent management has long been been seen by some as an area of weakness for the organisation. It may thereforefore be no coincidence that Salvino appears to have recognised this and acted swiftly to make leadership changes. The advent of Finch marks a further postive step for DXC, as the tech giant seeks to improve its internal culture, in the face of its ongoing transformation.

*UKHotViewsExtra* OLM's brave new cloud-native world

OLM logoIt takes a brave CEO to decide, after nearly 30 years at the helm of an SME, to go back to the proverbial drawing board and invest to develop a brand-new, cloud-native application to replace their flagship legacy product. But that is exactly the decision that Peter O’Hara, CEO and founder of social care software provider OLM, made five years ago.  

When we decided to build the system from the ground up with input from social workers, people called me crazy as it was a significant investment, but I knew it was the right thing to do,” O’Hara told us admitting that the challenge of creating something from the ground up was huge. He realised at the time that to have a successful future in the evolving UK social care market, OLM needed a cloud-native application that was built with an open systems platform approach.  

The period following O’Hara’s bold decision wasn’t an easy one for OLM, coinciding with challenging trading conditions in the local government market as austerity measures led to reduced spending and pricing pressure. The evidence suggests that the investment was worth it, however. 

HotViews Premium logo

Building a case management system from the ground up gave OLM the opportunity to look afresh at the care market ‘in the round’ and design a platform that enables a person-centred approach – supporting not just social care but health, education and not-for-profit services too. The result is ECLIPSE, a cloud-native platform benefiting from the public cloud, which was developed in the UK with input from some 500 social workers and launched by OLM earlier this year. Although competition in the UK social care software market remains strong, early indicators bode well for ECLIPSE’s success.  More…

*UKHotViewsExtra* Share indices in September 2019

tableSeptember was a mainly positive though relatively muted month for the major market indices that we track. The FTSE 100 was up 2.8% ahead of Nasdaq (+0.5%) and the FTSE IT index (all but flat). FTSE SCS – our proxy for UK-listed software & IT services companies – was also flat (though still up 11.8% ytd), outperformed by tech hardware (+4.9%). BT’s shares recovered by nearly 8% after last month’s 14% decline, and therefore so did the FTSE Fixed Line Telecom index. So far this year, Fixed Line Telecoms is the only sub-index below water, with the FTSE Support Services leading with 21% growth ytd.

British tech companies topped the charts in September led by two acquisitions. Shares in Watchstone Group, the software and services outfit born from the ashes of the infamous Quindell Group ,were up 56% by the end of the month after news of the sale of the healthcare services businesses of its Canadian subsidiary, Quindell Services Inc.

News of the buy-out of Wimbledon based, financial services technology provider, StatPro, by US-based Confluence Technologies, saw its shares rise by nearly 50%. Confluence is owned by private equity firm TA Associates. Frankly this is the ‘right answer’ for StatPro, which has long been struggling with the transition to SaaS.

Meanwhile, Edinburgh-based, though totally US-focused, healthcare analytics specialist, Craneware, saw its shares rise 40% in the month on the back of a promising outlook from its FY results. And surprisingly (to us), shares in UK-based 'recruiter of two halves' Nakama Group were also up 40% in the month after what the market must have interpreted as a positive outlook from its FY results.

UK companies also championed the Wooden Spoon brigade, led by (or should that be trailed by?) financial services  software player Brady, whose shares tanked by over 70% after an ugly set of half-time results. LoopUp Group, IDE Group and Quartix all saw their shares fall by over 30%.

Among the US stocks, the surprising leader was Unisys (+14%), recovering after a taking a bath in August. Even so, its shares are now worth some $7.4 compare to over $20 a year ago. Investors need a strong stomach for the roller-coaster ride on this ‘old soldier’. Worst performer was Pinterest (-23%), probably reflecting the negative sentiment to US tech unicorns (see just about anything written by our chairman Richard Holway).

Usual author Richard Holway is travelling. He will be back in the saddle in time for next month’s share performance roundup.

*UKHotViewsExtra* Proximity pays-off for Cognizant Europe

LogoCognizant has been having a tougher time of it of late (see here). Five months ago new CEO, Brian Humphries had the dubious honour of marking his fifth week in post by announcing an almost halving the growth outlook for FY19. The story since January has so far been very much a tale of two territories for this technology major. The company’s North American business has only managed to grow constant currency turnover by some 3.6% during the first two quarters of this current fiscal year. Conversely, Cognizant’s European unit, which accounts for around a sixth of global sales, has surged ahead increasing revenues during the same period by over 14% yoy.

HV Premium logoWe recently caught up with Cognizant’s European management team to find out more about what’s behind the strength of the performance on this side of the Atlantic.

*UKHotViewsExtra* Sibos 2019 exceeds expectations

SibosI’ve just spent a very interesting and informative few days at Sibos, the world’s pre-eminent gathering of the banking and payments industry. For 4 days every Autumn, the Sibos community gathers to discuss the latest pressing issues and to exchange views on the future shape of the industry. Banking institutions from all over the globe are represented, along with service providers and technology partners. As a result, a fair number of deals are set in motion at Sibos every year.

Sibos actually stands for SWIFT International Banking Operations Seminar and the event is named after SWIFT, the global financial messaging platform that organises the gathering. However, over the years, Sibos has grown into a much broader church than just the banks and the event is now a major destination for many different stakeholders in the financial services ecosystem.

If the record number of attendees at this year's event is anything to go by then Sibos 2019 appears to have been a tremendous success. For my part, I found the conference, exhibition and associated activities to be an extremely fruitful and informative use of my time.
