INTRODUCTION

STUDY GOALS AND OBJECTIVES
BCC Research's goal in conducting this study was to determine the current status of the global therapeutic market for blood-brain barrier (BBB) technologies, including its
growth potential over a five-year period from 2014 through 2019. Our key objective was to present a comprehensive analysis of the current BBB technology and drug
development market and its future direction, with the aim to first define and classify that technology as it pertains to therapeutics in which the technology enables the
therapeutic to directly cross rather than bypass the BBB.

REASONS FOR DOING THIS STUDY
BBB technologies are poised to open up a vast untapped potential in the growing central nervous system therapeutic market, where today growth is limited by the
complexity of this layer in the brain that prevents the passage of many potentially useful molecules/compounds. This report offers an outlook of the technology's potential that is on the verge of rapid increase. Therapeutics make up the main area of investment related to this technology — and the main focus of this report. BCC Research has not yet examined the BBB, although the central nervous system has been a consistent focus. As such, this snapshot and study of trending and growth is unique.

SCOPE OF REPORT
The scope of this study encompasses companies that develop technologies to enable the crossing of the BBB and drug development, in which a quality of the development
is enabling the crossing of the BBB, where passage was previously impossible often due to size. BCC Research analyzes each technology, determines its current market
status, examines its impact on future markets, and presents forecasts of growth over the next five years. Technological issues, including the latest trends, are discussed.

INTENDED AUDIENCE
In the report, the various BBB technologies are defined and given their history in medicine. The report also looks at the types and technology categories, major companies, impact on the pharmaceutical market, applications, current market values, growth potential and significant trends. This study will be of interest to the biotechnology and pharmaceutical industries and related life sciences, analytics, drug discovery, and diagnostic test manufacturing companies, as well as all those interested or actively working in drug and imaging agent research and investors in all of the above.

METHODOLOGY
BCC Research presents an analysis of the types of technologies, applications, and therapeutic areas representing financial value in the area of BBB technology in medicine as it relates primarily to drug discovery, development, and commercialization. Estimated values are based on actual aggregate sales for the years discussed. Overall, information is compiled through a combination of primary and secondary research, including annual reports and interviews with company officials.

INFORMATION SOURCES
BCC Research's analysis includes the review of more than 50 companies and information from financial and trade publications, as well as the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA). Pharmaceutical and biotechnology companies, as well as support companies, are also included.

"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.
Cloud applications are seeing a deluge of requests to support the exploding advanced analytics market. “Open analytics” is the emerging strategy to deliver that data through an open data access layer, in the cloud, to be directly consumed by external analytics tools and popular programming languages. An increasing number of data engineers and data scientists use a variety of platforms and advanced analytics languages such as SAS, R, Python and Java, as well as frameworks such as Hadoop and Spark...
The Internet giants are fully embracing AI. All the services they offer to their customers are aimed at drawing a map of the world with the data they get. The AIs from these companies are used to build disruptive approaches that cannot be used by established enterprises, which are threatened by these disruptions. However, most leaders underestimate the effect this will have on their businesses. In his session at 21st Cloud Expo, Rene Buest, Director Market Research & Technology Evangelism at Ara...
Join us at Cloud Expo June 6-8 to find out how to securely connect your cloud app to any cloud or on-premises data source – without complex firewall changes. More users are demanding access to on-premises data from their cloud applications. It’s no longer a “nice-to-have” but an important differentiator that drives competitive advantages. It’s the new “must have” in the hybrid era. Users want capabilities that give them a unified view of the data to get closer to customers and grow business. The...
"We are a monitoring company. We work with Salesforce, BBC, and quite a few other big logos. We basically provide monitoring for them, structure for their cloud services and we fit into the DevOps world" explained David Gildeh, Co-founder and CEO of Outlyer, in this SYS-CON.tv interview at DevOps Summit at 20th Cloud Expo, held June 6-8, 2017, at the Javits Center in New York City, NY.
The current age of digital transformation means that IT organizations must adapt their toolset to cover all digital experiences, beyond just the end users’. Today’s businesses can no longer focus solely on the digital interactions they manage with employees or customers; they must now contend with non-traditional factors. Whether it's the power of brand to make or break a company, the need to monitor across all locations 24/7, or the ability to proactively resolve issues, companies must adapt to...

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.
In the world of DevOps there are ‘known good practices’ – aka ‘patterns’ – and ‘known bad practices’ – aka ‘anti-patterns.' Many of these patterns and anti-patterns have been developed from real world experience, especially by the early adopters of DevOps theory; but many are more feasible in theory than in practice, especially for more recent entrants to the DevOps scene. In this power panel at @DevOpsSummit at 18th Cloud Expo, moderated by DevOps Conference Chair Andi Mann, panelists discussed...
