David Watkins, Director of Connected Home Devices at Strategy Analytics, said: "We are witnessing a precipitous drop in the price delta for Smart TVs compared to their traditional counterparts, reflecting the expectation of major TV vendors that they will make more money down the road from content partnerships rather than upfront on higher hardware costs. Though it remains to be seen how quickly this scenario will materialize, the immediate need for Over-the-Top content on Ultra HD TVs may be a catalyst."

Eric Smith, Analyst of Connected Home Devices at Strategy Analytics, added: "We expect that Smart TVs will comprise more than half of all FPTV shipments in the U.S. in 2014, but the Smart TV market will continue to be dominated by a handful of vendors at the top. Vendors competing solely on price will be slow to embrace Smart TV."

1. Strategy Analytics defines Smart TVs as subset of Connected FPTVs that have broad internet access and include advanced smart functionalities.

"When we talk about cloud without compromise what we're talking about is that when people think about 'I need the flexibility of the cloud' - it's the ability to create applications and run them in a cloud environment that's far more flexible,” explained Matthew Finnie, CTO of Interoute, in this SYS-CON.tv interview at 20th Cloud Expo, held June 6-8, 2017, at the Javits Center in New York City, NY.
When growing capacity and power in the data center, the architectural trade-offs between server scale-up vs. scale-out continue to be debated. Both approaches are valid: scale-out adds multiple, smaller servers running in a distributed computing model, while scale-up adds fewer, more powerful servers that are capable of running larger workloads. It’s worth noting that there are additional, unique advantages that scale-up architectures offer. One big advantage is large memory and compute capacity...

Both SaaS vendors and SaaS buyers are going “all-in” to hyperscale IaaS platforms such as AWS, which is disrupting the SaaS value proposition. Why should the enterprise SaaS consumer pay for the SaaS service if their data is resident in adjacent AWS S3 buckets? If both SaaS sellers and buyers are using the same cloud tools, automation and pay-per-transaction model offered by IaaS platforms, then why not host the “shrink-wrapped” software in the customers’ cloud? Further, serverless computing, cl...
You know you need the cloud, but you’re hesitant to simply dump everything at Amazon since you know that not all workloads are suitable for cloud. You know that you want the kind of ease of use and scalability that you get with public cloud, but your applications are architected in a way that makes the public cloud a non-starter. You’re looking at private cloud solutions based on hyperconverged infrastructure, but you’re concerned with the limits inherent in those technologies.
