Top UK IT services vendors in 2008

EDS took the largest share of the IT services market in the UK last year before it was acquired by Hewlett-Packard, according to a new report titled ‘Market Trends 2088: competitive landscape,' released by the global consulting firm Ovum last week. On the list of top IT vendors in 2008, IBM came in second Capgemini was the third.

In spite of having leading rank, EDS experienced negative growth and witnessed its market share slip. Several other IT services companies, including Fujitsu and Logica, also struggled in this respect, while Steria, Capita and Tata Consultancy Services (TCS) showed the strongest growth.

Dr Alexander Simkin, senior analyst at Ovum and author of the report, recommended courses of action for IT vendors this year:

“There were mega-deals, particularly in the public sector, that turned out to be poisoned chalices in 2008. IT services vendors will need to bid more selectively going forward if they are to avoid repeating this year’s mistakes. Imprudent bidding, portfolio and go-to-market strategies at this stage will prove especially damaging to revenue growth as the UK economy worsens in 2009.”
