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.

In the midst of the widespread popularity and adoption of cloud computing, it seems like everything is being offered “as a Service” these days: Infrastructure? Check. Platform? You bet. Software? Absolutely. Toaster? It’s only a matter of time. With service providers positioning vastly differing offerings under a generic “cloud” umbrella, it’s all too easy to get confused about what’s actually being offered. In his session at 16th Cloud Expo, Kevin Hazard, Director of Digital Content for SoftL...

In his session at @DevOpsSummit, Brian “Redbeard” Harrington, a principal architect at CoreOS, will examine how CoreOS helps teams run in production. Attende...

IT data is typically silo'd by the various tools in place. Unifying all the log, metric and event data in one analytics platform stops finger pointing and provides the end-to-end correlation. Logs, metrics and custom event data can be joined to tell the holistic story of your software and operations. For example, users can correlate code deploys to system performance to application error codes. In his session at DevOps Summit, Michael Demmer, VP of Engineering at Jut, will discuss how this can...
