NEW RESEARCH: UK SITS Supplier Rankings report 2017

lOne of our most eagerly awaited reports of the year is out now: the UK SITS Supplier Rankings report 2017. And we can reveal that Capita has retained the UK SITS market crown for the fourth year running despite having one of its more ‘challenging’ years.  

But that's not all. There’s a lot going on below the top spot. For the first time, subscribers to TechMarketView’s Foundation Service can see where DXC Technology – the business created through the merger of CSC and HPE Enterprise Services – has landed in the rankings. Having based our analysis on the company’s proforma revenues, we get as close as we can to understanding the true underlying performance of the business.

As usual, the UK SITS Supplier Landscape report includes all our brand-new ranking tables; as well as rankings for UK SITS (Top 60), we include rankings by IT and business process services, rankings by pure IT services, and rankings for each of the four UK SITS areas as defined by TechMarketView: enterprise software, application services, infrastructure services, and business process services.

Overall, the UK SITS Top 60 grew faster in 2016 – at both headline and organic level – than in 2015. Diversity of performance amongst the players, combined with a high level of corporate activity, means we have seen three new players enter the Top 30 and four new players enter the Top 60.

The so-called ‘spin-merger’ that created DXC Technology, had the biggest impact on the infrastructure services rankings; as well as DXC emerging in the Top 20, HPE is also a high-ranking player. Meanwhile, in the application services market, we saw a particularly strong performance amongst the top players, boosted by intense M&A activity and strong demand as organisations sought to prepare for a digital shift. And in the business process services market, the major disruption, identified in our UK SITS Market Trends & Forecasts 2017 report, upset the established incumbents at the very top of the market, whilst benefiting those trying to climb the ladder.
