Americans in 2020

NEW YORK, Aug. 18, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Reportlinker.com announces that a new market research report is available in its catalogue:

Americans in 2020

http://www.reportlinker.com/p02076264/Americans-in-2020.html

The fabric of who we are as a nation—from our employment prospects to our family structures—is constantly fraying and being rewoven. We are a graying nation inhabited by Baby Boomers and seniors who are decidedly not just fading away. People are living longer even as birth rates decline. Our residential and job communities are more diversified than ever due to a swelling—and increasingly more educated—minority populace. And delayed marriage combined with a greater propensity to pursue "three letter" degrees has allowed women in the workplace to both secure positions of authority and to usher the nation to an era of income equality among the genders. This latest report by Packaged Facts is designed to help forward-thinking individuals and companies understand the demographic changes that are shaping the country's short-term and longer-term future.

Scope and Methodology

Americans in 2020 focuses on the demographic data—economic, occupational, and domestic—that will serve as the backbone of American life in coming years. Among the sources of primary data are Simmons National Consumer Surveys through Spring 2013, from Experian Marketing Services. On an ongoing basis, Experian Marketing Services conducts booklet-based surveys of a large and random sample of consumers (approximately 25,000 for each 12-month survey compilation) who in aggregate represent a statistically accurate cross-section of the U.S. population. This report is also based on U.S. Census Bureau data and projections for key insights into population trends in America. The report also draws on upon data collected from a range of sources, including business and academic publications as well as non-governmental organizations and think tanks.

There is an ever-growing explosion of new devices that are connected to the Internet using “cloud” solutions. This rapid growth is creating a massive new demand for efficient access to data. And it’s not just about connecting to that data anymore. This new demand is bringing new issues and challenges and it is important for companies to scale for the coming growth. And with that scaling comes the need for greater security, gathering and data analysis, storage, connectivity and, of course, the...
Much of the value of DevOps comes from a (renewed) focus on measurement, sharing, and continuous feedback loops. In increasingly complex DevOps workflows and environments, and especially in larger, regulated, or more crystallized organizations, these core concepts become even more critical. In his session at @DevOpsSummit at 18th Cloud Expo, Andi Mann, Chief Technology Advocate at Splunk, will show how, by focusing on 'metrics that matter,' you can provide objective, transparent, and meaningfu...
Many private cloud projects were built to deliver self-service access to development and test resources. While those clouds delivered faster access to resources, they lacked visibility, control and security needed for production deployments. In their session at 18th Cloud Expo, Steve Anderson, Product Manager at BMC Software, and Rick Lefort, Principal Technical Marketing Consultant at BMC Software, will discuss how a cloud designed for production operations not only helps accelerate developer...

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 will dis...
We’ve worked with dozens of early adopters across numerous industries and will debunk common misperceptions, which starts with understanding that many of the connected products we’ll use over the next 5 years are already products, they’re just not yet connected. With an IoT product, time-in-market provides much more essential feedback than ever before. Innovation comes from what you do with the data that the connected product provides in order to enhance the customer experience and optimize busi...
The increasing popularity of the Internet of Things necessitates that our physical and cognitive relationship with wearable technology will change rapidly in the near future.
