The Natural Language Processing (NLP) Market Report - Worldwide Market Forecast & Analysis to 2018 With Company Profiles on Prominent Market Players Including IBM, Microsoft and More

DUBLIN, IRELAND -- (Marketwired) -- 03/05/14 -- Research and Markets ( has announced the addition of the "Natural Language Processing (NLP) Market (IVR, OCR, Pattern Recognition, Auto Coding, Text Analytics, Speech Analytics, Machine Translation, Information Extraction, Question Answer, Report Generation) - Worldwide Market Forecast & Analysis to 2018" report to their offering.

Natural language is easier for humans to learn and exercise but difficult for computers to comprehend. Machines have proven their potential in computationally intensive tasks. However, they still fall short to master the basics of spoken and written languages. Natural language processing is a human to computer interaction, which analyses and understands both spoken and written forms of human languages. It helps computers in formulating basic and advanced levels of interaction with humans.

This form of communications assists the computer to perform various other additional tasks. Such application include the processing of large amounts of data by utilizing natural language processing for information retrieval, information extraction, automatic summarization, machine translation and dialogue systems. The prominent market players using this technology for various applications include IBM, SAS, Nuance Communications, Microsoft, 3M, M(i)Modal, Fuji Xerox and NetBase.

This report provides a comprehensive analysis of the major market drivers, restraints, opportunities, challenges and addresses the key issues in the natural language processing market.

Too often with compelling new technologies market participants become overly enamored with that attractiveness of the technology and neglect underlying business drivers. This tendency, what some call the “newest shiny object syndrome” is understandable given that virtually all of us are heavily engaged in technology. But it is also mistaken. Without concrete business cases driving its deployment, IoT, like many other technologies before it, will fade into obscurity.
With all the incredible momentum behind the Internet of Things (IoT) industry, it is easy to forget that not a single CEO wakes up and wonders if “my IoT is broken.” What they wonder is if they are making the right decisions to do all they can to increase revenue, decrease costs, and improve customer experience – effectively the same challenges they have always had in growing their business. The exciting thing about the IoT industry is now these decisions can be better, faster, and smarter. Now ...
The Internet of Things is clearly many things: data collection and analytics, wearables, Smart Grids and Smart Cities, the Industrial Internet, and more. Cool platforms like Arduino, Raspberry Pi, Intel's Galileo and Edison, and a diverse world of sensors are making the IoT a great toy box for developers in all these areas. In this Power Panel at @ThingsExpo, moderated by Conference Chair Roger Strukhoff, panelists discussed what things are the most important, which will have the most profound...
In today's enterprise, digital transformation represents organizational change even more so than technology change, as customer preferences and behavior drive end-to-end transformation across lines of business as well as IT.

Traditional approaches for driving innovation are now woefully inadequate for keeping up with the breadth of disruption and change facin...

Culture is the most important ingredient of DevOps. The challenge for most organizations is defining and communicating a vision of beneficial DevOps culture for their organizations, and then facilitating the changes needed to achieve that.

The hard truth is that many IT managers have risen through the ranks based on their technical skills, not their leadership ab...
Microservices are a very exciting architectural approach that many organizations are looking to as a way to accelerate innovation. Microservices promise to allow teams to move away from monolithic "ball of mud" systems, but the reality is that, in the vast majority of organizations, different projects and technologies will continue to be developed at different speeds. How to handle the dependencies between these disparate systems with different iteration cycles? Consider the "canoncial problem"...
I recently attended and was a speaker at the 4th International Internet of @ThingsExpo at the Santa Clara Convention Center. I also had the opportunity to attend this event last year and I wrote a blog from that show talking about how the “Enterprise Impact of IoT” was a key theme of last year’s show. I was curious to see if the same theme would still resonate 365 days later and what, if any, changes I would see in the content presented.
