Don’t miss a thing...

Stream chartWith all the frenetic activity of the festive season, you may have missed some of the research & analysis published by the TechMarketView team in the latter half of December.

The analyst team finished 2015 with a flourish. Of course, a highlight was the synopsis of our 2016 Predictions published on UKHotViews (see TechMarketView’s theme for 2016: Surfing the Waves of Disruption), the full version of which will published this month. But, there was plenty more besides.

As 2015 drew to a close, PublicSectorViews Research Director, Georgina O’Toole, published an in depth analysis of the Comprehensive Spending Review & Autumn Statement. The report (see Comprehensive Spending Review 2015: Delving the detail for SITS opportunities) delves into the finer detail of the Government’s plans, separates the spin from the reality, and identifies potential opportunities for SITS suppliers.

Meanwhile, in FinancialServicesViews, Research Director Peter Roe, published his 2nd Payments Bulletin (see Payments Bulletin December 2015). In it he looks at two disruptors to payments in 2016, which are at very different stages of development: Blockchain and the Smartphone.

From the InfrastructureViews team, we were treated to research into the impact of Software Defined Networking (SDN) and Network Function Virtualisation (NFV), highlighting some of the early commercial uses of the technology and how it can be applied to improve the margins of cloud delivered services. In addition, the research lays out some of the challenges faces by suppliers as they move into this market (see SDN/NFV to boost cloud services profit margins).

And in ESASViews, Research Director, Angela Eager, published ‘Developments shaping the fast-flowing security market’. The report looks at the fundamentals of emerging security models and provides a snapshot of the security market in terms of key developments, opportunities and the overall supplier landscape.

We will have much more in January and beyond. In the meantime, if any of the above whets your appetite for our research and you don’t have access to the research stream in question; please don’t hesitate to contact Deb Seth who can talk you through your options.
