JUST TWO WEEKS LEFT TO APPLY FOR GBS2

logoThere's just two weeks to go before applications close for the second TechMarketView Great British Scaleup event (GBS2), to be held in London on 7-8 November.

logoIf you are a privately held, UK-owned tech SME and feel that you are ready to make a step-change in growth, then you really should apply. Yours could be one of eight companies invited to meet TechMarketView analysts and advisors from GBS programme Advisory Sponsor ScaleUp Group, the team of successful tech entrepreneurs and experienced executives that have been responsible for accelerating growth – and achieving successful exits – at many well-known tech companies.

You will spend 90-minutes in an intensive session to help you uncover the opportunities for your business to scale up, using the ScaleUp Index, the new proprietary scorecard developed by ScaleUp Group. You will come away with much greater clarity on your scale-up potential and plans, and feel much better equipped to undertake the next stage of your scale-up journey.

logoIn addition, every applicant will be entitled to an optional initial infrastructure assessment at no charge by managed cloud and infrastructure services firm Cogeco Peer 1, the Enterprise Cloud & Infrastructure Services Technology Partner for the Great British Scaleup programme.

And of course, participating companies will also enjoy invaluable exposure in TechMarketView UKHotViews, along with coverage in selected TechMarketView research.

To apply to participate in GBS2, a senior member of your team will need to complete the Pre-Qualification Form on our website here by Wednesday 4th October. We will let you know by Friday 18th October whether your application has been successful.

There is absolutely no charge, so don’t miss out on the opportunity to tap into the market knowledge of the TechMarketView team, and the entrepreneurial experience of ScaleUp Group advisors, to understand what it could take to materially accelerate your company’s growth.

** NEW RESEARCH ** INFOSYS - THE SIKKA YEARS

On 18 August 2017, Bangalore-based offshore services firm Infosys issued a terse statement saying, “the Board of Directors (has) accepted the notice of resignation of Dr. Vishal Sikka as the Managing Director and CEO, effective immediately.” The statement cited among his reasons for leaving, “a continuous stream of distractions and disruptions over the recent months and quarters, increasingly personal and negative as of late, as preventing management's ability to accelerate the Company's transformation”.

His resignation was not the end of the matter. The long-standing dispute between Infosys lead co-founder and industry scion, NR Narayana Murthy and the erstwhile Infosys board continues to play out in the very public eye of the very excitable Indian media.

TechMarketView Managing Partner Anthony Miller – widely acknowledged as an authority on the so-called Indian Pure-Plays (IPPs) – asks the only question that really matters about this unhappy state of affairs: Did Sikka leave Infosys in better shape than when he joined?

You may be surprised by the answer!

If you are not a subscriber but would like a FREE COPY of this report, please drop your details (name, company, position) to info@techmarketview.com with SIKKA YEARS in the subject line.

NEW RESEARCH: Understanding containers – Docker, but who else?

Containers have progressed from being a relatively niche technology just a few years ago to becomicontainersng the method of choice for developing new workloads in the cloud. Furthermore, some believe they will largely displace virtual machines as the preferred way of operating workloads, whether on-premise or in the cloud.

The recent interest in containers is largely attributed to the efforts of Docker, which took the containers concept and built a platform that made it simple to create and deploy workloads in containers.

In this research note we examine some of the key players and the opportunities and challenges they face. The research note will help you understand the main use cases, how Docker’s platform compares with the others, and how the market opportunities are shaping up.

Subscribers to InfrastructureViews can read the research here: Understanding the containers ecosystem.
