Based on Strategy Analytics preliminary estimates, Qualcomm widened its lead in the smartphone applications processor market with 54 percent revenue share, followed by Apple with 16 percent share and MediaTek with 10 percent share in 2013.

Some of the highlights of this Strategy Analytics report:

  • Qualcomm, Apple, MediaTek, Samsung and Spreadtrum captured the top-five revenue share spots in the smartphone applications processor market in 2013.
  • Qualcomm capitalized on its flagship Snapdragon 600 and 800 families of chips and captured 54 percent revenue share in 2013. In addition, Qualcomm's mid-range Snapdragon 400 and 200 families of chips also gained strong traction across multiple price tiers.
  • Apple ranked number two with 16 percent revenue share in the smartphone applications processor market in 2013. Apple's industry first 64-bit smartphone applications processor A7, featured in the iPhone 5S, gained significant traction in the latter half of the year.
  • MediaTek ranked number three with 10 percent revenue share, thanks to the company's strong momentum in sub-$200 smartphones. MediaTek's 28 nm-based quad-core chips have been received well in 2013.
  • Samsung ranked number four in the smartphone applications processor market in 2013. Samsung's Exynos 5 Octa featured in flagship devices such as the Samsung Galaxy S 4 and Note 3. During 2013, Samsung also released its first baseband-integrated applications processor, a significant product in the search for future growth.
  • Spreadtrum ranked number five in the smartphone applications processor market with the help of its EDGE, TD-SCDMA and UMTS applications processors. For the first time, Spreadtrum gained double-digit volume share in the smartphone applications processor market in 2013.
  • Multi-core chips from Broadcom, Marvell and HiSilicon gained traction in 2013. Broadcom came under pressure from Marvell and Spreadtrum at its key customer Samsung in 2013, but managed to win multiple high-volume design-wins. Marvell's applications processor business entered a growth path, thanks to improved product portfolio and diversified customer portfolio.
  • Tegra smartphone revenue at NVIDIA recovered in the second half of 2013, thanks to the introduction of Tegra 4. NVIDIA's upcoming Tegra 4i LTE chip could improve its smartphone applications processor volume.
  • Intel captured a minor 0.2 percent revenue share in the smartphone applications processor market in 2013.

According to Sravan Kundojjala, Senior Analyst, "Qualcomm widened its lead over competition in the smartphone applications processor market in 2013, thanks to its LTE-integrated Snapdragon chips and strong execution. Strategy Analytics believes that Qualcomm's multi-mode LTE technology coupled with its in-house CPU, GPU and DSP technologies made Qualcomm a force to reckon with in the mobile processor market."

According to Stuart Robinson, Director of the Strategy Analytics Handset Component Technologies service, "Strategy Analytics estimates that low-cost suppliers MediaTek and Spreadtrum registered significant growth and together captured about one-third volume share in the smartphone applications processor market in 2013. Strategy Analytics asserts that MediaTek and Spreadtrum will have to focus on high-end LTE and global markets for further growth."

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...
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.

The Internet of Things (IoT) promises to simplify and streamline our lives by automating routine tasks that distract us from our goals. This promise is based on the ubiquitous deployment of smart, connected devices that link everything from industrial control systems to automobiles to refrigerators. Unfortunately, comparatively few of the devices currently deployed have been developed with an eye toward security, and as the DDoS attacks of late October 2016 have demonstrated, this oversight can ...

"Once customers get a year into their IoT deployments, they start to realize that they may have been shortsighted in the ways they built out their deployment and the key thing I see a lot of people looking at is - how can I take equipment data, pull it back in an IoT solution and show it in a dashboard," stated Dave McCarthy, Director of Products at Bsquare Corporation, in this SYS-CON.tv interview at @ThingsExpo, held November 1-3, 2016, at the Santa Clara Convention Center in Santa Clara, CA.

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.
Data is the fuel that drives the machine learning algorithmic engines and ultimately provides the business value.

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.
