Report Provides View Of The Growth Of The UK Software And IT Services Market Through The End Of The Decade


DUBLIN, Ireland - Research and Markets has announced the addition of “Market Trends 2006: UK Software and IT Services To 2010” to their offering

The maturing of the software and IT services (S/ITS) industry continues, with IT services growth rates firmly in the mid single digits in our forecast period to 2010. Software growth will approach double digits, and software has now replaced outsourcing as the fastest-growing industry sector. Excluding the expected effects of inflation, combined S/ITS growth is expected to slightly exceed GDP growth rates during our forecast period.

Cost cutting remains an important rationale for new contracts, but end users are showing an increased interest in spending for ‘growth agenda’ purposes: using technology innovation to raise corporate revenues or improve service quality to customers.

One sign of this maturity is the ‘industrialisation’ of IT services, with service delivery becoming more standardised and modular, promising customers and suppliers alike greater efficiency, quality control and predictability.

This 2006 report provides our complete view of the growth of the UK software and IT services market from now until the end of this decade. It supports your market planning with forecast data and trend analysis covering the key service lines (outsourcing, BPO, consulting, systems integration, enterprise software, IT support etc) and vertical sectors (public sector, financial services, telecoms/media, retail etc).

Market rankings by subsector help you compare your own performance with that of your competitors. And as youd expect, Market Trends 2006 highlights the big picture trends - from software-as-a-service to global sourcing to shared services to the componentisation of IT architectures - that will shape the S/ITS market in the coming years, enabling you to capitalise on the changes ahead.
