LONDON, Jan. 6, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Reportbuyer.com just published a new market research report:

Asia/Pacific Manufacturing 2014 Top 10 Predictions

"2014 will continue its pace as Asia/Pacific Manufacturers continue to seek new opportunities for either lower-cost manufacturing centers or new emerging markets. IDC Manufacturing Insights expect to see more manufacturing activities coming to Southeast Asia as manufacturers based in China increasingly seek to reduce cost by moving to lower-cost Asian countries," says Dr. William Lee, senior research manager, IDC Manufacturing Insights Asia/Pacific.

"From a technology perspective, innovation in emerging economies will be a hot topic for 2014 and beyond, driven by an ever more demanding customer and increased competition from Western companies. Focusing on innovation from both internal and external sources will require improved means of collaboration. With ever increasing vertical and subvertical specific applications being introduced, IDC Manufacturing Insights expects the continued transition to packaged applications and the increased involvement in the line of business (LOB) making technology decisions. The use of a social business approach will be seen within forward-thinking organizations to facilitate the instantaneous spread of information and the reformation of the organization. This will drive visibility into the supply chain and facilitate the ability to take decisions in real time, based on actual information within specified time limits," adds Dr. Lee.

For IoT to grow as quickly as analyst firms’ project, a lot is going to fall on developers to quickly bring applications to market. But the lack of a standard development platform threatens to slow growth and make application development more time consuming and costly, much like we’ve seen in the mobile space. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Mike Weiner, Product Manager of the Omega DevCloud with KORE Telematics Inc., discussed the evolving requirements for developers as IoT matures and conducte...
Container technology is sending shock waves through the world of cloud computing. Heralded as the 'next big thing,' containers provide software owners a consistent way to package their software and dependencies while infrastructure operators benefit from a standard way to deploy and run them. Containers present new challenges for tracking usage due to their dynamic nature. They can also be deployed to bare metal, virtual machines and various cloud platforms. How do software owners track the usag...
Explosive growth in connected devices. Enormous amounts of data for collection and analysis. Critical use of data for split-second decision making and actionable information. All three are factors in making the Internet of Things a reality. Yet, any one factor would have an IT organization pondering its infrastructure strategy. How should your organization enhance its IT framework to enable an Internet of Things implementation? In his session at @ThingsExpo, James Kirkland, Red Hat's Chief Arch...
Providing the needed data for application development and testing is a huge headache for most organizations. The problems are often the same across companies - speed, quality, cost, and control. Provisioning data can take days or weeks, every time a refresh is required. Using dummy data leads to quality problems. Creating physical copies of large data sets and sending them to distributed teams of developers eats up expensive storage and bandwidth resources. And, all of these copies proliferating...
Malicious agents are moving faster than the speed of business. Even more worrisome, most companies are relying on legacy approaches to security that are no longer capable of meeting current threats. In the modern cloud, threat diversity is rapidly expanding, necessitating more sophisticated security protocols than those used in the past or in desktop environments. Yet companies are falling for cloud security myths that were truths at one time but have evolved out of existence.
Digital Transformation is the ultimate goal of cloud computing and related initiatives. The phrase is certainly not a precise one, and as subject to hand-waving and distortion as any high-falutin' terminology in the world of information technology. Yet it is an excellent choice of words to describe what enterprise IT—and by extension, organizations in general—should be working to achieve. Digital Transformation means: handling all the data types being found and created in the organizat...
Public Cloud IaaS started its life in the developer and startup communities and has grown rapidly to a $20B+ industry, but it still pales in comparison to how much is spent worldwide on IT: $3.6 trillion. In fact, there are 8.6 million data centers worldwide, the reality is many small and medium sized business have server closets and colocation footprints filled with servers and storage gear. While on-premise environment virtualization may have peaked at 75%, the Public Cloud has lagged in adop...
