IT Services - UK - May 2016
“Computer technology has migrated away from its origins of providing new ways to undertake activities to increase capabilities, improve efficiency, and transform cost competitiveness. It is evolving towards identifying and analysing data to benefit the growth and marketing potential of organisations.”
– Terry Leggett, Senior B2B Analyst
This report answers the following key questions:
- In a rapidly developing market are the dynamics constantly changing?
- Is the industry structure changing?
- Is the cloud the major current trend?
This report is concerned with information technology (IT) services. The market has two major elements:
- IT consultancy
- other information technology and computer services
IT consultancy (also called IT consulting, computer consultancy, business and technology services, computing consultancy, technology consulting, and IT advisory) is an industry that advises businesses on how best to use information technology to meet their objectives. In recent years, a specific sector of the market has arisen to address the facilities management computer services sector. More typically, the IT consultancy sector can be segmented into two separate areas: strategic advice and systems integration. Often, but not exclusively, these will be conducted in tandem during an initial contract. Subsequently, there tends to be further integration work conducted in isolation.
There is a relatively unclear line between management consulting and IT consulting. There are sometimes overlaps between the two fields, and most major international management consultancies are engaged in IT consultancy. There are, however, also specialist IT companies that are strongly active in the sector.
