DUBLIN, Ireland, December 30, 1899 /PRNewswire/ --



Research and Markets (http://www.researchandmarkets.com/research/9zgp5g/pointofcare) has announced the addition of the "Point-Of-Care Diagnostic Market by Products, End Users, Over the Counter & Prescription Based - Global Forecast to 2018" report to their offering.

The global point-of-care diagnostics market is dominated by North America, followed by Europe, Asia-Pacific and the Rest of the World (RoW). North America will continue to dominate the market in the forecast period, followed by the Asia-Pacific. However, the Asia-Pacific region is expected to grow at the highest CAGR of -13.6% from 2013 to 2018. 

Over the next five years, the growth of the market in the Asia-Pacific region is likely to be centered at Japan, China, and India. A number of factors such as the huge patient population base, increasing funding/investment toward the development of point of care diagnosticproducts, growing focus of both international and domestic players on the Asia-Pacific point-of-care diagnostics market, and large number of R&D activities are driving the growth of the market in the Asia-Pacific region.

A number of factors such as the rising prevalence of lifestyle and infectious diseases, increasing usage of home-based POC devices, and decreasing number of technicians in central labs are driving the growth of the global market. Furthermore, growing government support and increasing private investments and venture funding to support new product development are other factors that are propelling the growth of the market. In addition, rising adoption of POC devices, expansion of therapeutic horizon, and technological advancements is further fueling the growth of this market.

However, a few pivotal factors such as lack of alignment with definitive central lab methods, and reluctance to change existing treatment practices are hindering the growth of this market. Moreover, disadvantages of POC testing over central lab methods and recalls of leading glucose monitoring devices are the foremost challenges faced by industry players.

New product launches is the key strategy followed by leading market players to ensure their growth in the POC diagnostics market. Moreover, partnerships, agreements, collaboration, and joint ventures; mergers and acquisitions; and expansions are some other growth strategies adopted by industry players in the global market.

You know you need the cloud, but you’re hesitant to simply dump everything at Amazon since you know that not all workloads are suitable for cloud. You know that you want the kind of ease of use and scalability that you get with public cloud, but your applications are architected in a way that makes the public cloud a non-starter. You’re looking at private cloud solutions based on hyperconverged infrastructure, but you’re concerned with the limits inherent in those technologies.
Both SaaS vendors and SaaS buyers are going “all-in” to hyperscale IaaS platforms such as AWS, which is disrupting the SaaS value proposition. Why should the enterprise SaaS consumer pay for the SaaS service if their data is resident in adjacent AWS S3 buckets? If both SaaS sellers and buyers are using the same cloud tools, automation and pay-per-transaction model offered by IaaS platforms, then why not host the “shrink-wrapped” software in the customers’ cloud? Further, serverless computing, cl...
The taxi industry never saw Uber coming. Startups are a threat to incumbents like never before, and a major enabler for startups is that they are instantly “cloud ready.” If innovation moves at the pace of IT, then your company is in trouble. Why? Because your data center will not keep up with frenetic pace AWS, Microsoft and Google are rolling out new capabilities. In his session at 20th Cloud Expo, Don Browning, VP of Cloud Architecture at Turner, posited that disruption is inevitable for comp...
"When we talk about cloud without compromise what we're talking about is that when people think about 'I need the flexibility of the cloud' - it's the ability to create applications and run them in a cloud environment that's far more flexible,” explained Matthew Finnie, CTO of Interoute, in this SYS-CON.tv interview at 20th Cloud Expo, held June 6-8, 2017, at the Javits Center in New York City, NY.

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...
Wooed by the promise of faster innovation, lower TCO, and greater agility, businesses of every shape and size have embraced the cloud at every layer of the IT stack – from apps to file sharing to infrastructure. The typical organization currently uses more than a dozen sanctioned cloud apps and will shift more than half of all workloads to the cloud by 2018. Such cloud investments have delivered measurable benefits. But they’ve also resulted in some unintended side-effects: complexity and risk. ...
It is ironic, but perhaps not unexpected, that many organizations who want the benefits of using an Agile approach to deliver software use a waterfall approach to adopting Agile practices: they form plans, they set milestones, and they measure progress by how many teams they have engaged. Old habits die hard, but like most waterfall software projects, most waterfall-style Agile adoption efforts fail to produce the results desired. The problem is that to get the results they want, they have to ch...
With the introduction of IoT and Smart Living in every aspect of our lives, one question has become relevant: What are the security implications?

In his session at @ThingsExpo, Nevi Kaja, a Research Engineer at Ford Motor Company, discussed some of the security challenges of the IoT infrastructure and related how these aspects impact Smart Living. The material was delivered interac...
