Metrology refers to the measurement services offered to various end use industries such as automotive, aerospace, manufacturing, and power generation among others. The global metrology services market is expected to grow at a CAGR of 8.2% during the forecast period from 2012 to 2018 and reach the market size of USD 720.3 million in 2018. Need for precisely measured components across different industry verticals including electronics industry, power generation industry, automotive sector, and others is creating the demand for metrology services, globally.

Metrology services are beneficial in increasing efficiency by optimizing productivity without affecting the resource requirements. Different types of metrology products can be used independently or as an integrated system for quality control and inspection, 3D measurement, product quality optimization, reverse engineering, and others during manufacturing process. High precision equipments pose a significant challenge to the manufacturers to keep their inventory at par due to their high costs. This has given rise to a service industry where third party vendors offer measurement services to the manufacturers. 

The metrology services market is segmented into two major categories based on product type namely coordinated measuring machines (CMM) and optical digitizers and scanners (ODS). Global metrology services market for CMM is expected to grow at a CAGR of over 7% from 2012 to 2018 while metrology services market for ODS is expected to show the growth rate of around 9% during the same forecast period. This is because ODS provides more precision for measurement of difficult geometries with touch probe accuracy. Among all the ODS products, demand for 3D laser scanners is highest due to its high accuracy and better preciseness. 

The rise in industrialization in Asia Pacific in the past few years has significantly contributed to the growth of the metrology services market. The rapidly booming automotive industry in Asia Pacific is the largest contributor to the global metrology services market.

Today we can collect lots and lots of performance data. We build beautiful dashboards and even have fancy query languages to access and transform the data. Still performance data is a secret language only a couple of people understand.

They have a question on their mind like “How is my application doing” but no id...

In IT, we sometimes coin terms for things before we know exactly what they are and how they’ll be used. The resulting terms may capture a common set of aspirations and goals – as “cloud” did broadly for on-demand, self-service, and flexible computing. But such a term can also lump together diverse and even competing practices, technologies, and priorities to the point where important distinctions are glossed over and lost.
Predictive analytics tools monitor, report, and troubleshoot in order to make proactive decisions about the health, performance, and utilization of storage. Most enterprises combine cloud and on-premise storage, resulting in blended environments of physical, virtual, cloud, and other platforms, which justifies more sophisticated storage analytics. In his session at 18th Cloud Expo, Peter McCallum, Vice President of Datacenter Solutions at FalconStor, discussed using predictive analytics to mon...
All clouds are not equal. To succeed in a DevOps context, organizations should plan to develop/deploy apps across a choice of on-premise and public clouds simultaneously depending on the business needs. This is where the concept of the Lean Cloud comes in - resting on the idea that you often need to relocate your app modules over their life cycles for both innovation and operational efficiency in the cloud.
