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."

Predictions

In This Study

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

5. In 2014, There Will Be Continued Penetration of Wireless Connectivity (Such as Bluetooth, ZigBee, WiFi, and Cellular) into a Slew of Consumer Devices

6. ARM Instruction Set-Based Enterprise- and Datacenter-Class Systems Are Not Expected Until 2015

7. In 2014, the Form Factor (Ultrabook, Convertible, and Laptop) War Will Reach a Fever Pitch as Vendors Attempt to Nail Down End Users' Needs and Stimulate the Shrinking PC Market

8. Software-Defined Networking (SDN) and Network Functions Virtualization (NFV) Driven by Open Standards Will Create New Opportunities for Vendors in 2014

9. Small Cell Deployment Acceleration in 2014 to Augment Macrocell Capacity, Coverage, and Speed Will Create an Incremental Opportunity for Infrastructure Silicon Vendors, Especially in the Implementation of Self-Organizing Networks (SONs)

10. The NAND Industry Will Continue to Follow Moore's Law, with the Initial Production of 3D NAND in 2014

"We are a leader in the market space called network visibility solutions - it enables monitoring tools and Big Data analysis to access the data and be able to see the performance," explained Shay Morag, VP of Sales and Marketing at Niagara Networks, in this SYS-CON.tv interview at 19th Cloud Expo, held November 1-3, 2016, at the Santa Clara Convention Center in Santa Clara, CA.
According to Forrester Research, every business will become either a digital predator or digital prey by 2020. To avoid demise, organizations must rapidly create new sources of value in their end-to-end customer experiences. True digital predators also must break down information and process silos and extend digital transformation initiatives to empower employees with the digital resources needed to win, serve, and retain customers.
Amazon has gradually rolled out parts of its IoT offerings in the last year, but these are just the tip of the iceberg. In addition to optimizing their back-end AWS offerings, Amazon is laying the ground work to be a major force in IoT – especially in the connected home and office. Amazon is extending its reach by building on its dominant Cloud IoT platform, its Dash Button strategy, recently announced Replenishment Services, the Echo/Alexa voice recognition control platform, the 6-7 strategic...
Organizations planning enterprise data center consolidation and modernization projects are faced with a challenging, costly reality. Requirements to deploy modern, cloud-native applications simultaneously with traditional client/server applications are almost impossible to achieve with hardware-centric enterprise infrastructure. Compute and network infrastructure are fast moving down a software-defined path, but storage has been a laggard. Until now.
We're entering the post-smartphone era, where wearable gadgets from watches and fitness bands to glasses and health aids will power the next technological revolution. With mass adoption of wearable devices comes a new data ecosystem that must be protected. Wearables open new pathways that facilitate the tracking, sharing and storing of consumers’ personal health, location and daily activity data. Consumers have some idea of the data these devices capture, but most don’t realize how revealing and...
IoT solutions exploit operational data generated by Internet-connected smart “things” for the purpose of gaining operational insight and producing “better outcomes” (for example, create new business models, eliminate unscheduled maintenance, etc.). The explosive proliferation of IoT solutions will result in an exponential growth in the volume of IoT data, precipitating significant Information Governance issues: who owns the IoT data, what are the rights/duties of IoT solutions adopters towards t...
Get deep visibility into the performance of your databases and expert advice for performance optimization and tuning. You can't get application performance without database performance. Give everyone on the team a comprehensive view of how every aspect of the system affects performance across SQL database operations, host server and OS, virtualization resources and storage I/O.

Whether your IoT service is connecting cars, homes, appliances, wearable, cameras or other devices, one question hangs in the balance – how do you actually make money from this service? The ability to turn your IoT service into profit requires the ability to create a monetization strategy that is flexible, scalable and working for you in real-time. It must be a transparent, smoothly implemented strategy that all stakeholders – from customers to the board – will be able to understand and comprehe...
Between 2005 and 2020, data volumes will grow by a factor of 300 – enough data to stack CDs from the earth to the moon 162 times. This has come to be known as the ‘big data’ phenomenon. Unfortunately, traditional approaches to handling, storing and analyzing data aren’t adequate at this scale: they’re too costly, slow and physically cumbersome to keep up. Fortunately, in response a new breed of technology has emerged that is cheaper, faster and more scalable. Yet, in meeting these new needs they...
Complete Internet of Things (IoT) embedded device security is not just about the device but involves the entire product’s identity, data and control integrity, and services traversing the cloud. A device can no longer be looked at as an island; it is a part of a system. In fact, given the cross-domain interactions enabled by IoT it could be a part of many systems. Also, depending on where the device is deployed, for example, in the office building versus a factory floor or oil field, security ha...
An IoT product’s log files speak volumes about what’s happening with your products in the field, pinpointing current and potential issues, and enabling you to predict failures and save millions of dollars in inventory. But until recently, no one knew how to listen. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Dan Gettens, Chief Research Officer at OnProcess, discussed recent research by Massachusetts Institute of Technology and OnProcess Technology, where MIT created a new, breakthrough analytics model for s...
When it comes to cloud computing, the ability to turn massive amounts of compute cores on and off on demand sounds attractive to IT staff, who need to manage peaks and valleys in user activity. With cloud bursting, the majority of the data can stay on premises while tapping into compute from public cloud providers, reducing risk and minimizing need to move large files. In his session at 18th Cloud Expo, Scott Jeschonek, Director of Product Management at Avere Systems, discussed the IT and busin...
