Video market in the world: TV Everywhere and SVoD Explosion in Europe

Image
Current data and findings from Rethink Technology Research are very interesting. One can then observe that, the European market for OTT subscriptions is growing fast, and can reach €8.1 billion by 2021, a growth of €3.9 billion in just five years from the $4.2 billion it is today. A report just out called The Rise of paid OTT in Europe from Rethink Technology Research’s OTT service Rethink OTT Intelligence shows that the European OTT market is more diverse and advanced than any other video market in the world, and while it has taken the stimulation of Netflix to trigger widespread SVoD usage, already some 85 million are who looking at paid OTT streams if you include both TV Everywhere (52 million) and SVoD (32 million). Free to air OTT services in Europe are more deeply penetrated than anywhere else in the world, with close to 50% of the entire population over the age of 12 (216 million) watching free to air broadcast catch-up regularly across the EU countries. The firm also realized …

Lenovo GameState for kids to code paves its way within the game industry

Image
Always, exciting to narrate about adage. Today I talk about Amy Poehler’s Smart Girls’ slogan: Amy Poehler’s Smart Girls:Change the World by Being Yourself. Inspired by this motto, I have a pleasure to recall that, LenovoGameState.comas a free, online destination for kids ages 13 and up, it lets kids become part of a Code & Play Adventure, powered by Code Combat, where they can learn to code by playing a game.
I can also observe that, tapping into the STEAM (Science/Technology/Engineering/Arts/Mathematics) and “Maker” movements, LenovoGameState.com combines the entertainment of traditional computer games with the educational benefits of real code development, providing an even playing field for girls and boys to learn to code at their own pace. Players start out learning programming basics like writing syntax, calling methods and storing data in variables before moving on to exploring if-statements, x-y coordinates, Boolean operators and other coding concepts.

The Secure DevOps market with Veracode and CA Technologies

Image
As Security testing is on an exciting curve than any other security market, the combination of CA’s portfolio with privately-held Veracode can establish CA Technologies as one of key players in the Secure DevOps market through the automation and scaling of application security testing (AST) to develop and deploy applications faster with fewer defects. With Veracode, CA Technologies aims to bridge its Security business with its broad DevOps portfolio. I can also observe that, Veracode extends CA’s go-to-market strategy into midsize enterprise customers while CA accelerates Veracode’s global reach into larger enterprise customers.

Artificial Intelligence (AI) changes supply chain processes into algorithms to monitor the entire operation

Image
Artificial intelligence changes supply chain processes into algorithms to monitor the entire operation. This is useful in many ways, such as locating inefficiencies in the production process and determining the best ways to mitigate them. Artificial Intelligence (AI) can also analyze data from other operational aspects, such as financial information and team structure.
By looking at information from different viewpoints of business, Artificial Intelligence (AI)can find insights that would otherwise be missed. With the use of Artificial Intelligence (AI) in supply chains, companies can establish an agile supply chain, enabling them to anticipate and deal with business uncertainties and disruptions. Artificial Intelligence (AI) technology in supply chains can also result in building a structure where there is a continuous flow of products and data from one end point to the other of the global supply chain operation.

3D printing at the core of the creation of prototypes

Image
While at their early stage, Artificial intelligence and additive manufacturing or 3D printing are emerging technologies that have a huge potential in a variety of industries and applications.
Regarding 3D printing at the core of the creation of prototypes, I can recall that, 3D printing makes the creation of prototypes much easier and faster, allowing manufacturers to test multiple iterations of a design quickly. In effect, as designing a successful product can be very expensive and time-consuming, 3D printed prototyping makes it quite simple at the same time shortens the manufacturing cycle.
