LONDON, March 8, 2013 /PRNewswire/ --
The U.S. Supreme Court last year upheld President Obama's Affordable Care Act (ACA). The ACA is the biggest overhaul of the healthcare industry in decades. While critics say that ACA will have a negative impact on the healthcare industry, supporters of the reform believe that the increase in the amount of insured individuals will ultimately benefit the industry. Apart from ACA, another major trend that is having an impact on drug makers such as Mylan Inc. (NASDAQ: MYL), Forest Laboratories Inc. (NYSE: FRX), Avanir Pharmaceuticals Inc.

Much of that potential comes from the evolving data management and analytic (DMA) technologies and processes that allow us to gain insight from all of the IoT data that can be generated and gathered. This potential may never be met as those data sets are tied to specific industry verticals and single markets, with no clear way to use IoT data and sensor analytics to fulfill the hype being given the IoT today.
