A compelling track record combined with a solid market footprint

CXP Group has a unique and comprehensive offering combining subscription-based access to content and market intelligence, market research and selected advisory services for the software and IT services industry.

Uniquely positioned at the converging point of key driving forces

  • An unparalleled set of research and consulting capabilities to drive decisions and go-to-market strategies in a rapidly changing IT environment
  • Increasing need for a local understanding of both vertical users and local vendors' needs which the global, US-based players fail to properly address
