Endocrine glands and hormones are major elements of the endocrine system that are crucial for regulation of several body mechanisms such as growth, development and homeostasis. Responses to stress, injury, absorption of nutrients maintenance of water and electrolyte balance and energy metabolism constitutes major areas of control and integration offered by the endocrine system. There are endocrine glands (pituitary, pineal, thyroid and others) and secretory organs (pancreas, hypothalamus) that release hormones directly into the blood stream. These glands have rich blood supply which facilitate movement of hormones to reach their target organs and enable various alterations in metabolism of target organs by increasing or decreasing their activity.

Endocrine tests are crucial for monitoring normal functioning of endocrine system since any deviation (hypersecretion or hyposecretion) from the normal levels of hormones results in development of various endocrine disorders such as diabetes, thyroid, cancer and infertility. These tests enable both qualitative and quantitative determination of the hormone levels and can be performed either in hospitals, commercial laboratories (thyroid hormone tests, progesterone tests) or even at home (pregnancy test kit, blood sugar test strips). Endocrine testing market is witnessing increasing growth and adoption majorly due to constant rise in several disorders such as diabetes, thyroid and reproductive system disorders.These disorders indicate the abnormal level of endocrine hormones in the body thereby creating a need and demand for effective endocrine testing kits. In addition, continuous evolution of diagnostic platforms followed by increasing healthcare awareness would further augment the growth and development of endocrine testing platforms. The global market for endocrine testing market was valued at USD 1,537.5 million in 2012 growing at a CAGR of 4.3% from 2013 to 2019.

Endocrine testing market can be analyzed by the type of tests involved, diagnostic platforms and end users. The various hormone tests refer to estradiol, Follicle Stimulating Hormone (FSH), Human Chorionic Gonadotropin (hCG), Luteinizing Hormone (LH), Dehydroepiandrosterone sulfate (DHEAS), Progesterone, Testosterone, Thyroid Stimulating Hormone (TSH), Prolactin, Cortisol, Insulin tests and others. Thyroid stimulating hormone test market was estimated to be the largest market segment in 2012 growing at a CAGR of 5.4% during the forecast period. This is attributed to high prevalence of thyroid disorders among geriatric population and also is more common in females than males with a female to male ratio of 10:1. Also, as per the research findings published in Elsevier, Inc., among the population aged above 65, 1.7% have hypothyroidism and 13.7% of aging population have subclinical hypothyroidism. Insulin test is expected to be the fastest growing segment during the forecast period from 2013 to 2019. The major reason being constant rise in diabetic and obese population across the globe.

A critical component of any IoT project is what to do with all the data being generated. This data needs to be captured, processed, structured, and stored in a way to facilitate different kinds of queries. Traditional data warehouse and analytical systems are mature technologies that can be used to handle certain kinds of queries, but they are not always well suited to many problems, particularly when there is a need for real-time insights.
Providing secure, mobile access to sensitive data sets is a critical element in realizing the full potential of cloud computing. However, large data caches remain inaccessible to edge devices for reasons of security, size, format or limited viewing capabilities. Medical imaging, computer aided design and seismic interpretation are just a few examples of industries facing this challenge. Rather than fighting for incremental gains by pulling these datasets to edge devices, we need to embrace the i...
In 2014, Amazon announced a new form of compute called Lambda. We didn't know it at the time, but this represented a fundamental shift in what we expect from cloud computing. Now, all of the major cloud computing vendors want to take part in this disruptive technology. In his session at 20th Cloud Expo, John Jelinek IV, a web developer at Linux Academy, will discuss why major players like AWS, Microsoft Azure, IBM Bluemix, and Google Cloud Platform are all trying to sidestep VMs and containers...
Web Real-Time Communication APIs have quickly revolutionized what browsers are capable of. In addition to video and audio streams, we can now bi-directionally send arbitrary data over WebRTC's PeerConnection Data Channels. With the advent of Progressive Web Apps and new hardware APIs such as WebBluetooh and WebUSB, we can finally enable users to stitch together the Internet of Things directly from their browsers while communicating privately and securely in a decentralized way.
IoT is at the core or many Digital Transformation initiatives with the goal of re-inventing a company's business model. We all agree that collecting relevant IoT data will result in massive amounts of data needing to be stored. However, with the rapid development of IoT devices and ongoing business model transformation, we are not able to predict the volume and growth of IoT data. And with the lack of IoT history, traditional methods of IT and infrastructure planning based on the past do not app...
All organizations that did not originate this moment have a pre-existing culture as well as legacy technology and processes that can be more or less amenable to DevOps implementation.

This culture and entrenched interests usually throw a wrench in the work...
