Biomarkers comprise definite cells, genes, molecules, gene products, enzymes, or hormones which are objectively measured as an indicator of typical biological processes, pathogenic processes, or pharmacologic response to a therapeutic intrusion. Major application areas of biomarkers are early disease diagnosis and prevention, drug target recognition, and drug discovery and development. The global market showcases high growth potential in the near future. This market is expected to grow at a CAGR of 18.5% from 2013 to 2018, to reach $40.8 billion by 2018.

The global market has been segmented into biomarker discovery technologies, biomarker services, applications, and disease indications. The biomarker discovery technologies are classified as omics technology, imaging technology, and bioinformatics. Omics technology, which includes proteomics, genomics, transcriptomics, and metabolomics, accounts for the largest share of the biomarker discovery technology market. The biomarkers services market is classified into sample preparation, assay development, and biomarker validation and testing services. Biomarker applications market has been segmented as drug discovery and development, molecular diagnostics, and personalized medicine. Based on type of diseases, the biomarker disease indication market has been classified as oncology, cardiology, neurology, and other diseases (HIV, renal disorders, diabetes, arthritis, and tuberculosis).

Globally, the biomarkers market is witnessing a transformation and is expected to grow at a high growth rate in the coming years. The growth in the market will be primarily driven by advancements in discovery technologies, government initiatives and grants for biomarker research activities, and rising demand for personalized medicine. The incidence and prevalence of chronic diseases such as cancer, cardiac diseases, and diabetes is increasing globally and hence, it is crucial to develop new preventive and diagnostics treatments. Since, biomarkers play a significant role in development of preventive and diagnostic tests and drugs, the demand of biomarkers is expected to increase rapidly.

Over the past few years, the biomarkers industry has been witnessing increasing number of contracts and partnership agreements among market players for the development of novel biomarkers. Major research on biomarkers is taking place in the field of oncology. Recent developments of companies such as Thermo Fisher Scientific, Inc. (U.S.), QIAGEN N.V. (Netherlands), Roche Diagnostics (Switzerland), Hologic, Inc. (U.S.), and Johnson & Johnson (U.S.) have exhibited inclination towards agreements and partnerships, in accordance to their key strategy to expand their market share and geographical presence.

When it comes to IoT in the enterprise, namely the commercial building and hospitality markets, a benefit not getting the attention it deserves is energy efficiency, and IoT’s direct impact on a cleaner, greener environment when installed in smart buildings. Until now clean technology was offered piecemeal and led with point solutions that require significant systems integration to orchestrate and deploy. There didn't exist a 'top down' approach that can manage and monitor the way a Smart Buildi...
Recently announced Azure Data Lake addresses the big data 3V challenges; volume, velocity and variety. It is one more storage feature in addition to blobs and SQL Azure database.

In his session at @ThingsExpo, Tony Shan, Chief Architect at CTS, will explore the synergy of Big Data and IoT. First he will take a closer look at the Internet of Things and Big Data individually, in terms of what, which, why, where, when, who, how and how much. Then he will explore the relationship between IoT and Big Data. Specifically, he will drill down to how the 4Vs aspects intersect with IoT: Volume, Variety, Velocity and Value. In turn, Tony will analyze how the key components of IoT ...
As-a-service models offer huge opportunities, but also complicate security. It may seem that the easiest way to migrate to a new architectural model is to let others, experts in their field, do the work. This has given rise to many as-a-service models throughout the industry and across the entire technology stack, from software to infrastructure. While this has unlocked huge opportunities to accelerate the deployment of new capabilities or increase economic efficiencies within an organization, i...

You have your devices and your data, but what about the rest of your Internet of Things story? Two popular classes of technologies that nicely handle the Big Data analytics for Internet of Things are Apache Hadoop and NoSQL. Hadoop is designed for parallelizing analytical work across many servers and is ideal for the massive data volumes you create with IoT devices. NoSQL databases such as Apache HBase are ideal for storing and retrieving IoT data as “time series data.”
Clearly the way forward is to move to cloud be it bare metal, VMs or containers. One aspect of the current public clouds that is slowing this cloud migration is cloud lock-in. Every cloud vendor is trying to make it very difficult to move out once a customer has chosen their cloud.
