DUBLIN, Apr. 16, 2014
/PRNewswire/ --Research and Markets (http://www.researchandmarkets.com/research/6vr5xn/realtime) has announced the addition of the "Real-Time Location Systems (RTLS) Market by Product, Technology, Application, Industry Vertical & Geography to 2020" report to their offering.
A Real-Time Location System refers to a location tracking solution that enables enterprises to identify, track, and manage their key assets such as equipment, tools, and personnel in real time by placing a tag/badge on them. The tags affixed to the asset send signals to the location readers/sensors periodically and utilize wireless technologies such as RF signals, Wi-Fi, Infrared, Ultrasound, Zigbee, and others for communication between tags and readers. These readers then communicate with the middleware/software platform, which analyzes the data received and correlates useful information that improves the operational efficiency and staff productivity in an enterprise.
Some of the major applications of Real-Time Location Systems solutions include asset tracking & management, personnel & staff tracking, patient tracking, staff safety & work flow automation, and environment sensing & monitoring, among others. Presently, active RFID and Wi-Fi based solutions are the two major market shareholders in the global market. Wi-Fi based solutions are more popular in healthcare environments, whereas RFID is mainly being employed in industrial environments. Both these technologies hold a very promising future in the coming years as well. Moreover, UWB and Zigbee are the emerging technologies with a tremendous market potential, mainly due to advantages such as high location precision & accuracy and a long battery life.
The main driving factors propelling the tremendous growth of the market include the need of optimum resource utilization through the efficient asset tracking in real time, increasing standardization, declining cost of tags, technological advancements, escalating Real-Time Location Systems applications in numerous industry sectors, and government support & funding. However, factors that are hindering the growth of this market are high upfront costs & budgetary constraints and lack of awareness among customers regarding RTLS benefits. Among all industry verticals, healthcare contributed to the largest market share in 2013; however, industrial manufacturing and process industries (mining, oil & gas) are expected to grow explosively in the upcoming future.
In the geographical analysis, Americas accounted for the largest market share in terms of the market value as well as the RTLS deployments followed by Europe. In developed economies, the technological advancements regarding RTLS tags, and emerging technologies such as UWB & Zigbee are the major drivers for the Real-Time Location Systems growth.

What happens when the different parts of a vehicle become smarter than the vehicle itself? As we move toward the era of smart everything, hundreds of entities in a vehicle that communicate with each other, the vehicle and external systems create a need for identity orchestration so that all entities work as a conglomerate. Much like an orchestra without a conductor, without the ability to secure, control, and connect the link between a vehicle’s head unit, devices, and systems and to manage the ...

"Once customers get a year into their IoT deployments, they start to realize that they may have been shortsighted in the ways they built out their deployment and the key thing I see a lot of people looking at is - how can I take equipment data, pull it back in an IoT solution and show it in a dashboard," stated Dave McCarthy, Director of Products at Bsquare Corporation, in this SYS-CON.tv interview at @ThingsExpo, held November 1-3, 2016, at the Santa Clara Convention Center in Santa Clara, CA.

In IT, we sometimes coin terms for things before we know exactly what they are and how they’ll be used. The resulting terms may capture a common set of aspirations and goals – as “cloud” did broadly for on-demand, self-service, and flexible computing. But such a term can also lump together diverse and even competing practices, technologies, and priorities to the point where important distinctions are glossed over and lost.

All clouds are not equal. To succeed in a DevOps context, organizations should plan to develop/deploy apps across a choice of on-premise and public clouds simultaneously depending on the business needs. This is where the concept of the Lean Cloud comes in - resting on the idea that you often need to relocate your app modules over their life cycles for both innovation and operational efficiency in the cloud. In his session at @DevOpsSummit at19th Cloud Expo, Valentin (Val) Bercovici, CTO of Soli...

Enterprise IT has been in the era of Hybrid Cloud for some time now. But it seems most conversations about Hybrid are focused on integrating AWS, Microsoft Azure, or Google ECM into existing on-premises systems. Where is all the Private Cloud? What do technology providers need to do to make their offerings more compelling? How should enterprise IT executives and buyers define their focus, needs, and roadmap, and communicate that clearly to the providers?

IoT solutions exploit operational data generated by Internet-connected smart “things” for the purpose of gaining operational insight and producing “better outcomes” (for example, create new business models, eliminate unscheduled maintenance, etc.). The explosive proliferation of IoT solutions will result in an exponential growth in the volume of IoT data, precipitating significant Information Governance issues: who owns the IoT data, what are the rights/duties of IoT solutions adopters towards t...
