*NEW RESEARCH* Daisy must harness market disruption to accelerate transformation

daisyDaisy Group has become a significant provider in the Infrastructure Services market via its acquisition of Top 20 player, Phoenix (see UK Infrastructure Services Supplier Landscape 2015).

Daisy’s move into IT services is indicative of broader M&A activity we are seeing in the industry to bring together communications and IT capabilities. For example, we have seen Atos acquire Unify from Siemens, SCC make strategic investments in networking and comms, NTT buy Dell Services, and just this week, Six Degrees buy Carrenza.

We believe there is an opportunity for Daisy to position itself as a supplier that can help buyers overhaul the underlying technology to create the type of modern-day assets that help make organisations more responsive and better able to interact with their own customer base. Like other infrastructure services players, Daisy could become a key provider of the ‘plumbing’ that supports major digital transformation initiatives.
