Research released excerpts from its latest Broadcast
and Streaming Video Equipment and Pay TV Subscribers report,

“We are very early in a long-term transition to software-based and SDN-controlled
video processing, but we believe the shift will result in increased
spending on both multiscreen encoders and content delivery network
equipment, as pay-TV and over-the-top (OTT) providers begin purchasing
these platforms to more efficiently process and distribute video
content,” says Jeff
Heynen, principal analyst for broadband access and pay TV at Infonetics
“Multiscreen and multi-format video give providers the flexibility to
deliver video to any end device from nearly every point in their

Pay-TV providers are using a mix of platforms, from GPU-based devices
to software-only, to create massive and distributed encoding
horsepower in the cloud—all managed centrally via software-defined
networking (SDN) controllers
Harmonic continues to lead the global broadcast and streaming
video equipment market, although its revenue share decreased about one
point while some competitors gained in 2013

The essence of data analysis involves setting up data pipelines that consist of several operations that are chained together – starting from data collection, data quality checks, data integration, data analysis and data visualization (including the setting up of interaction paths in that visualization). In our opinion, the challenges stem from the technology diversity at each stage of the data pipeline as well as the lack of process around the analysis.
