Henderson Scott has created a new division to capitalise on opportunities in the rapidly emerging cloud computing market and other developing technology areas.

The Emerging Technology division will be led from Henderson Scott’s London office by Callum Wallace, who has been promoted to the position of divisional manager following a highly successful period serving the company as a senior consultant in Singapore.

Henderson Scott’s Emerging Technology division will focus on a range of developing technology markets, including software as a service (SaaS), mobile applications, social enterprise, social media, digital and associated consultancy services.

Leading analysts predict worldwide revenues from public IT cloud services alone will reach $72.9 billion in 2015, representing an annual growth rate of 27.6% from a level of $21.5 billion in 2010.

This rapid rate of increase is over four times the projected growth for the worldwide IT market as a whole, which sits at 6.7% for the same period, while demand for private IT cloud services also continues to soar.

Callum Wallace, divisional manager at Henderson Scott, said: “A fundamental aspect of cloud computing is that it is facilitating a comprehensive change in the market, in addition to providing its own immediate solution. The cloud based model is already enabling the rapid development of other facets of the IT and telecommunications industry, which in turn is acting as an accelerant to the broad adoption of cloud based services. A prime example of this is in the creation and uptake of the expanding range of mobile devices and mobile applications, and their integration into consumer and corporate environments.”

Chris Hunter, head of sales and manager of Henderson Scott’s London office, added: “It is clear that cloud computing is going to revolutionise the IT industry along with the way people communicate and do business. It is essential that Henderson Scott is at the forefront of this change and the newly created Emerging Technology division will ensure our award winning, international operation continues deliver a market leading service to our clients.”
