Box, Citrix, Dropbox, Egnyte, Google, Intralinks, and Microsoft evaluated as EFSS service providers

Due to their importance within modern companies and business processes, enterprise file sync and share (EFSS) services deserve a special attention.
IDC has evaluated Box, Citrix, Dropbox, Egnyte, Google, Intralinks, and Microsoft. One can observe that, each EFSS service was subjected to a series of tests that compared performance and reliability across three file sizes: small (less than 500K), medium (20 MB) and large (greater than 4GB) to emulate different use cases. 
Their results show that sync performance is dramatically different across EFSS services because of differences in architectures and the choices vendors make in implementing sync capabilities. 
Among the seven vendors, Dropbox and Egnyte ranked the highest in aggregate test results. All of the vendors passed their reliability tests.

Here is why it is important to evaluate, measure and compare Enterprise File Sync and Share Performance platforms

Streamlined collaboration, productivity and performance across enterprise boundaries are essential in our ever-connected digital world where the competition is increasingly rude.
Enterprise File Sync and Share Performance platforms are now playing an important role when it comes to provide enhanced collaboration, productivity and performance within enterprises and beyond. Therefore, it becomes necessary to evaluate, measure and compare them.
In effect, while Sync is challenging to evaluate, it remains obvious that, Enterprise File Sync and Share Performance platforms deal with large volumes of files, so that, performance differences translate to increased networking costs and lower end user productivity.
Then, adopting a service with low performing sync can result in buyer regret, with low adoption rates and unnecessarily higher networking costs.

Smart wearables particularly smartwatches are waging new trends

We are still at the initial stages regarding Smart wearables particularly smartwatches. 
Apple Watch for instance is building its consumer-based ecosystem with new interesting functionalities, and partners; while others vendors struggle to improve their own. 
In effect, the transition from basic wearables to smart wearables will remain low, as smartwatches still need to convince users that they are a must-have item with useful and exciting third party applications.

Current powerful trends around Basic wearable devices

The finding is now clear on the fact that, Basic wearables, which include most fitness trackers, have benefited from a combination of factors such as: a clear value proposition for end-users, an abundant selection of devices from multiple vendors, and affordable price points, to name a few.
IDC reveals that basic wearables accounted for 82.8% of all wearable devices shipped during the 2Q16, and more vendors continue to enter this space. 
Unfortunately, most devices end up being copycats of others, making it increasingly difficult to differentiate themselves in a crowded market.

Basic Wearables Soar Vs Smart Wearables devices

Currently, the most exciting in the wearable devices industry is to observe that, consumers adopt new functionality, such as communication and mobile payments, while enterprises investigate wearables’ productivity potential.
According to IDC, shipments of wearable devices reached 22.5 million in the second quarter of 2016 (2Q16) , and the overall market for wearable devices grew 26.1% year over year as new use cases are slowly starting to emerge.
Basic wearables (devices that do not support third party applications) grew 48.8% from 2Q15 levels while smart wearables (devices that support third party applications) declined 27.2% year over year.
