The use of technology at home and at work has become totally ubiquitous, accelerated by Covid-19 lockdowns in 2020 and 2021.
Those businesses focussed on the development, implementation and effective use of technology continue to benefit from macro-economic drivers such as hybrid-working, inflation, cost-control, supply chain security and efficiency and data volumes. Conventional terminology must run to catch up with technological developments and as Artificial Intelligence, Machine Learning, IOT, Cloud Services and UX technology delivers genuine cost or service gains, they will drive mid-market investment and M&A.
Meantime digital transformation consultancies, outsourced services, anything -as-a-service, consultancies with deep enterprise software (such as SAP, Microsoft) capabilities or extension applications and B2B software are all areas of buyer and investor focus.

- IT services
- IT consultancies
- IT Managed services
