Strong growth in UK private sector
In early coverage of our results, TechMarketView focused on UK performance:
“In the UK, revenues contracted 0.3% in 2013 (to €2,004m), but grew 1.8% in H2 (after a particularly strong Q4 – 6.4% up)… the private sector business grew in the double digits and now represents 39% of UK revenues. A significant win with Network Rail (application development) boosted Q4 growth. The Network Rail deal also contributed to Capgemini’s growth in its ‘innovations’ business, as it had a big data/analytics element.” Follow the link for the full article at TechMarketView.
