Market research firm Infonetics
Research released excerpts from its latest M2M
Connections and Services by Vertical report, which
provides market size, analysis, and forecasts for machine-to-machine
(M2M) connections and services by technology, vertical, and geographic
M2M ANALYST NOTE
continues to gather momentum as enterprises, in the never-ending pursuit
of competitive advantage, seek to find new ways of using connected
technologies to improve business agility and lower operational costs,”
Chua, directing analyst for M2M and The Internet of Things at Infonetics
adds: “For service providers, there are significant and fast-growing
opportunities ahead. Specifically, cellular technologies are playing an
increasingly important role in enabling M2M services, comprising the
vast majority of WAN wireless M2M connections today, over 220 million,
and nearly tripling to just over 630 million connections by 2018.”
“Among the cellular generations, 2G and 3G are the majority currently,
but it’s LTE that will grow the fastest, starting from a small base and
then expanding rapidly, supported by efforts like AT&T/GM/OnStar
and other connected car initiatives, as well as China Mobile’s
massive LTE-TDD network rollout,” continues Chua.
M2M MARKET HIGHLIGHTS
The global market for M2M
services reached just over $16 billion in 2013, and there were nearly
1.7 billion M2M connections worldwide
A growing list of global tier 1 players are supporting more than 10
million M2M connections each
M2M “access” services—where operators’ broadband services function as
M2M access solutions—make up over 16% of M2M service revenue, around
80% of M2M devices in 2013 were connected via personal area network
(PAN) technologies such as WiFi, Bluetooth, and ZigBee
Global revenue from M2M services is forecast by Infonetics to grow at
an 18% CAGR
from 2013 to 2018
For technology vendors, it is increasingly important to build
networking solutions that take into consideration the architectural
requirements of the various M2M use cases that are proliferating, as
well as the portfolio of emerging connection technologies

While DevOps most critically and famously fosters collaboration, communication, and integration through cultural change, culture is more of an output than an input. In order to actively drive cultural evolution, organizations must make substantial organizational and process changes, and adopt new technologies, to encourage a DevOps culture. Moderated by Andi Mann, panelists discussed how to balance these three pillars of DevOps, where to focus attention (and resources), where organizations might...

Microservices are a very exciting architectural approach that many organizations are looking to as a way to accelerate innovation. Microservices promise to allow teams to move away from monolithic "ball of mud" systems, but the reality is that, in the vast majority of organizations, different projects and technologies will continue to be developed at different speeds. How to handle the dependencies between these disparate systems with different iteration cycles? Consider the "canoncial problem" ...

The essence of cloud computing is that all consumable IT resources are delivered as services. In his session at 15th Cloud Expo, Yung Chou, Technology Evangelist at Microsoft, demonstrated the concepts and implementations of two important cloud computing deliveries: Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS) and Platform as a Service (PaaS). He discussed from business and technical viewpoints what exactly they are, why we care, how they are different and in what ways, and the strategies for IT to transi...

The Internet of Things is clearly many things: data collection and analytics, wearables, Smart Grids and Smart Cities, the Industrial Internet, and more. Cool platforms like Arduino, Raspberry Pi, Intel's Galileo and Edison, and a diverse world of sensors are making the IoT a great toy box for developers in all these areas. In this Power Panel at @ThingsExpo, moderated by Conference Chair Roger Strukhoff, panelists discussed what things are the most important, which will have the most profound e...

All organizations that did not originate this moment have a pre-existing culture as well as legacy technology and processes that can be more or less amenable to DevOps implementation. That organizational culture is influenced by the personalities and management styles of Executive Management, the wider culture in which the organization is situated, and the personalities of key team members at all levels of the organization. This culture and entrenched interests usually throw a wrench in the work...

Keeping pace with advancements in software delivery processes and tooling is taxing even for the most proficient organizations. Point tools, platforms, open source and the increasing adoption of private and public cloud services requires strong engineering rigor - all in the face of developer demands to use the tools of choice. As Agile has settled in as a mainstream practice, now DevOps has emerged as the next wave to improve software delivery speed and output. To make DevOps work, organization...

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...

Web Real-Time Communication APIs have quickly revolutionized what browsers are capable of. In addition to video and audio streams, we can now bi-directionally send arbitrary data over WebRTC's PeerConnection Data Channels. With the advent of Progressive Web Apps and new hardware APIs such as WebBluetooh and WebUSB, we can finally enable users to stitch together the Internet of Things directly from their browsers while communicating privately and securely in a decentralized way.

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.
