We are excited to announce that as of August 1st, 2019, the majority of IHS Markit’s Technology portfolio has been acquired by Informa, joining with leading research brands Ovum, Heavy Reading and Tractica as part of the Informa Tech data and research portfolio.
Informa Tech’s new combined research group will provide comprehensive data, research, consulting and marketing services on: service providers and platforms; digital communications services and technologies; consumer and enterprise devices; media and advertising; digital transformation; semiconductors; display technologies; emerging technologies and cybersecurity; and end-markets ranging from manufacturing to medical applications.
If you would like to learn more about additional research offerings available through Informa Tech, please review the Ovum.com or Tractica.com websites, or reach out to your IHS Markit Technology account manager who can connect you with an Informa colleague.
Will my account manager or subscription be changing?
For now, there is no change to how either IHS Markit Technology or Ovum customers interact with us or do business. Customers can still access all of their subscriptions and analyst teams through the same individual websites and can still contact their existing account managers.
Some IHS Markit Technology products will not be joining the Informa portfolio and will remain with IHS Markit, specifically:
- Power and Energy Technology (excluding the Smart Utility Meter Intelligence Service)
- Teardowns & Cost Benchmarking
- Automotive Technology
If I take a subscription that is not transferring to Informa, what will happen?
For the time being, you are still able to access all of the above content through the technology.ihs.com website. Additionally, your account managers can discuss renewals or subscriptions to the above products as well as to the other IHS Markit Technology products that have transferred to Informa.
Beginning on September 9th, 2019, customers who take the above products will need to access these in a different location. Further details on how to access these services will be communicated well in advance, and customers will still be able to discuss renewals with your account manager.
Is IHS Markit Technology changing its name?
For the time being, IHS Markit Technology is retaining its name and you can still reach us through the technology.ihs.com URL. We expect that the new research brands at Informa will unify under a single name at some point in Q1 2020. At that time, we will tell customers about the new name and any changes to URLs – we will provide redirects as appropriate.
Who should I speak to if I have questions?If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to contact your account manager directly or email us at CustomerCare@ihsmarkit.com.
