Worldwide Enabling Technologies and Semiconductors 2014 Top 10 Predictions

LONDON, Jan. 22, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Reportbuyer.com just published a new market research report:

Worldwide Enabling Technologies and Semiconductors 2014 Top 10 Predictions

This IDC study identifies IDC's top 10 predictions for the worldwide enabling technologies and semiconductor market for 2014. As in the past, some of our top predictions for this year are natural extensions of trends that began earlier. Other predictions discuss relatively new phenomena that have yet to gain the attention of the industry -- LTE proliferation, sensors, connectivity, wearable technologies, and the evolving Internet of Things market to name a few.

According to Les Santiago, research director in IDC's Semiconductors Research practice, "Underlying virtually every new gadget or system trend in the industry is a vibrant semiconductor ecosystem that continually innovates and pushes the bounds of design and process technology. Our 2014 predictions will be particularly relevant to clients in executive management, strategic management, and product management roles."

Situation Overview

Future Outlook

1. LTE Deployments in the United States Dominated 2013, But 2014 Will Be the Year That Will Bring Increased FDD-LTE Deployments in Europe and TDD-LTE in China

2. The "Plumbing" for the Internet of Things (IoT) Will Attract Significant Activity in 2014, Including Low-Cost IP-Enabled Sensors and IoT Hubs

3. In 2014 -- the Year of the Sensor -- Sensors (and Sensor Processing Elements) Will Be Incorporated into a Slew of Devices Beyond Smartphones, Including Tablets, Notebooks, Consumer Devices, and Industrial Devices

4. In 2014, the Wearable Market Will Remain in an Early Stage of Adoption, But Vendors Will Invest in Optimizing Wearable Platforms and Software Vendors Will Focus on Developing Innovative Apps That Extend Support for This New Class of Device

The essence of data analysis involves setting up data pipelines that consist of several operations that are chained together – starting from data collection, data quality checks, data integration, data analysis and data visualization (including the setting up of interaction paths in that visualization). In our opinion, the challenges stem from the technology diversity at each stage of the data pipeline as well as the lack of process around the analysis.
Cloud computing changed data analytics for good. It enabled companies to drastically decrease resources and architecture previously assigned with business intelligence departments. It also enabled laymen to run advanced business analytics. Cloud was also the architecture of choice for storing and processing big data. Data piling is a continuous process, which is going to explode with emerging Internet of Things concept. Answer to this issue developers found in new concept called fog computing. ...
