Sapphire is entering its early maturity stage. There is a surge of sapphire-based devices and applications that can be employed in a number of industry verticals. Thanks to the advancement in growth technologies; it is now possible to leverage high-end technologies for the processing of sapphire that can be extensively used in applications that are yet to be developed.

The key market drivers for sapphire include: high cost effectiveness compared to other materials as the cost incurred in the growth of this material is very low compared to its peers. For example, the cost of 2-inch GaN wafer is more than 10 times the cost of 2-inch sapphire wafer. Other key driver for sapphire is the vast addressable market for sapphire power semiconductors such as RFIC, IC, and MMIC. The important driver for the growth of the sapphire market is the LED market application that holds the crown of the entire sapphire ecosystem. 

While the already existing materials, apart from sapphire, have an established supply chain, it would eventually be helpful for sapphire as well. Inspite of being in its growth stage and facing an increasing demand, sapphire still has some restraints that restrict its growth. The key market restraints can be classified as: high level of competition from the new entrants due to innovative technology and high market growth and competition from the high-end materials which is fierce due to the rising demand in the high-end products.

This report focuses on giving a detailed view of the complete sapphire industry with regards to the growth technology, with detailed market segmentations, combined with qualitative analysis of each and every aspect of the classification on the basis of growth technology, production methods, substrate wafer type, devices, applications, sub-applications, and geography. All the numbers, both, revenue and volume, at every level of detail, are forecast till 2020 to give a glimpse of the potential revenue base in this market. Major players in Sapphire Technology Market includes: GT Advanced Technology (U.S), Rubicon Technology (U.S.), Namiki Precision Jewel Co. Ltd (Japan), Monocrystal Inc. (Russia), DK Aztec Co. Ltd (Korea), and Tera Xtal (Taiwan) among others.

The Internet of Things will challenge the status quo of how IT and development organizations operate. Or will it? Certainly the fog layer of IoT requires special insights about data ontology, security and transactional integrity. But the developmental challenges are the same: People, Process and Platform and how we integrate our thinking to solve complicated problems. In his session at 19th Cloud Expo, Craig Sproule, CEO of Metavine, demonstrated how to move beyond today's coding paradigm and sh...
DevOps is often described as a combination of technology and culture. Without both, DevOps isn't complete. However, applying the culture to outdated technology is a recipe for disaster; as response times grow and connections between teams are delayed by technology, the culture will die. A Nutanix Enterprise Cloud has many benefits that provide the needed base for a true DevOps paradigm.
Big Data, cloud, analytics, contextual information, wearable tech, sensors, mobility, and WebRTC: together, these advances have created a perfect storm of technologies that are disrupting and transforming classic communications models and ecosystems.

For organizations that have amassed large sums of software complexity, taking a microservices approach is the first step toward DevOps and continuous improvement / development. Integrating system-level analysis with microservices makes it easier to change and add functionality to applications at any time without the increase of risk. Before you start big transformation projects or a cloud migration, make sure these changes won’t take down your entire organization.
WebRTC is about the data channel as much as about video and audio conferencing. However, basically all commercial WebRTC applications have been built with a focus on audio and video.

DevOps is being widely accepted (if not fully adopted) as essential in enterprise IT. But as Enterprise DevOps gains maturity, expands scope, and increases velocity, the need for data-driven decisions across teams becomes more acute. DevOps teams in any modern business must wrangle the ‘digital exhaust’ from the delivery toolchain, "pervasive" and "cognitive" computing, APIs and services, mobile devices and applications, the Internet of Things, and now even blockchain.
A strange thing is happening along the way to the Internet of Things, namely far too many devices to work with and manage.

Enter the conversational interface revolution, combining bots we can literally talk with, gesture to, and even direct with our thoughts, with embedded artificial intelligence, whic...
