LONDON, April 8, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Reportbuyer.com has added a new market research report:
United Kingdom Infrastructure Report Q1 2014
Includes 3 FREE quarterly updates
This quarter we have once again revised our construction industry growth forecast upwards in
light of growing activity and confidence in the residential sector and a number of mega-projects that are in
motion. The government's 'Help to Buy' scheme is pushing developers to start building, although we caution
the longevity of the boost to growth. The UK's largest planned project, the Hinkley Point C nuclear reactor,
is now set to enter construction in 2014 after EDF and the government agreed a strike price. Our view that
the railways sector will outperform in transport infrastructure gained more support after Network Rail's
CP5 investment plan was approved by regulators. In light of these factors, we now see the construction
industry value posting real growth of 1.5% year-on-year in 2013 and 2.3% in 2014.
Whilst we have revised our forecasts this quarter, we remain cautious in our optimism. Indeed, after a
prolonged contraction since 2007, the UK's construction sector will need sustained growth over the coming
years to return to its pre-crisis levels of output. Certainly, talk of a boom in the sector is misguided, with
much of the UK still struggling in comparison to London. In 2012 construction activity was 14% lower than
the pre-recession peak and deteriorated even further in the first quarter of 2013.

My team embarked on building a data lake for our sales and marketing data to better understand customer journeys. This required building a hybrid data pipeline to connect our cloud CRM with the new Hadoop Data Lake. One challenge is that IT was not in a position to provide support until we proved value and marketing did not have the experience, so we embarked on the journey ourselves within the product marketing team for our line of business within Progress. In his session at @BigDataExpo, Sum...

Virtualization over the past years has become a key strategy for IT to acquire multi-tenancy, increase utilization, develop elasticity and improve security. And virtual machines (VMs) are quickly becoming a main vehicle for developing and deploying applications. The introduction of containers seems to be bringing another and perhaps overlapped solution for achieving the same above-mentioned benefits. Are a container and a virtual machine fundamentally the same or different? And how? Is one techn...

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.

As software becomes more and more complex, we, as software developers, have been splitting up our code into smaller and smaller components. This is also true for the environment in which we run our code: going from bare metal, to VMs to the modern-day Cloud Native world of containers, schedulers and micro services. While we have figured out how to run containerized applications in the cloud using schedulers, we've yet to come up with a good solution to bridge the gap between getting your contain...
