We are delighted to have been selected as one of 12 companies for the 2015 Little British Battler (LBB) programme.
The LBB initiative, which started in 2012, is run by one of the leading IT services analyst firms, TechMarketView, in association with MXC Capital. LBB celebrates small companies that are punching above their weight and recognised for their innovative approach. We join over 70 other small companies that have been awarded LBB status.
Our CEO, Storry Warner, presented to the LBB panel at this year’s ‘Magnificent Seventh’ event on 12th November, 2015. Below is their summary of AgilityWorks, which has been shared with the UKITS community.
The commentary was written by Angela Eager, Research Director at TechMarketView. "As its name suggests, Little British Battler AgilityWorks is all about agility – using its combination of services and solutions to deliver agile outcomes for businesses keen to make the most of disruptive change.
Originally set up as specialist consultancy to provide faster, better data insight services for SAP implementations, it aims to bring the digital way of thinking and operating to bear on traditional application environments. It applies a digital layer that enables agility without disrupting core systems. This message resonates in the market and helps AgilityWorks send a clear signal in a noisy environment. To achieve this it has been also been building its own software solutions – a good move in our view as we believe IP aligned with services capability is how providers can differentiate and add value.
Its approach means this small but well formed operation can compete head-to-head with large SI’s for big brand customers such as Vodafone and Muller (and several more that we can’t disclose at the moment) – and win. When it comes to innovative projects, big businesses are willing to bet on small innovators.
As you would expect, AgilityWorks is not standing still. While SAP estates continue to provide opportunities, it has also developed the Connected Cloud Enterprise managed cloud integration service. This sounds like a smart move - inter-cloud integration is something TechMarketView sees as key in the age of digital disruption.
Being small means our Little British Battlers have to be smart - and agile of course - and we see evidence of this from co-founder and CEO Storry Warner and his team. In an environment dominated by large scale/long term projects, the AgilityWorks proposition of quality solutions, delivered quickly and cost efficiently, that take advantage of disruptive change to produce business outcomes, is garnering attention and budgets.”
Commenting on the LBB programme, Storry said, “Meeting the TMV team has been invaluable in terms of their input and suggestions around our vision and future plans. We feel quite humbled to be recognised for our ambition and innovation - I’m really proud of our team, who are completely deserving of this status. Based on how previous LBB companies have benefited, we are really looking forward to seeing how this helps our profile and exposure to new partners and opportunities.“
