The European Biometric market

Establishing identity is becoming critical in the European vastly interconnected society, and extensive demands and deployments of biometrics are observed in airports, immigration enforcement, law enforcement, and secure access control, commercial and forensic applications.
In effect, Biometrics has started to gain acceptance as a legitimate method for determining an individual's identity in many countries. According to Research and Markets, the European Biometric market (including systems sales, aftersales service and upgrades) is forecasted to grow by 92% by 2022.

Establishing identity is becoming critical in the European vastly interconnected society

I have a pleasure to recall that, the need for reliable user authentication techniques has increased due to information security requirements, privacy concerns and rapid advancements in networking, communication and mobility systems.

Internet of things (IoT) is driving the demand for connected devices, which is driving the demand for System-On-Chip (SoCs)

The Internet of things (IoT) is steadily at the core of our data-driven era. This network is flowing vast amount of data in real-time from multiple sources. For those who are unfamiliar, Internet of things (IoT) is the system of interrelated devices or things embedded with electronics, software, sensors, and network connectivity. It involves machine-to-machine (M2M) communication enabling devices to exchange and act upon information by eliminating human-to-human or human-to-computer interaction.
According to networking equivalent, Metcalfe's Law, formulated by Robert Metcalfe, the value of a telecommunications network is proportional to the square of the number of devices connected to it. Research and Markets reveals that, the number of connected devices will be more than 4.9 billion connected devices by 2021. Thus, Internet of things (IoT) is driving the demand for connected devices, which is driving the demand for SoCs used in these devices.

Combination of NVIDIA’s acceleration technology with IBM’s Cloud platform

Steadily, enterprises of all sizes are increasingly relying on cognitive and deep learning applications to make sense of these massive volumes and varieties of data.
Based on this reality, IBM makes the NVIDIA® Tesla® P100 GPU accelerator available on the cloud. By combining NVIDIA’s acceleration technology with IBM’s Cloud platform, businesses can expect to more quickly and efficiently run compute-heavy workloads, such as artificial intelligence, deep learning and high performance data analytics.

Oracle Exadata Cloud Machine

With this technology, we have at the center of stakes: choice and flexibility, the ability to help Organizations to reap the benefits of the Oracle Cloud Platform in their own datacenter. It is a way among many others to bridge the gap between the public cloud and on-premises workloads or environment. With the availability of Oracle Exadata Cloud Machine, organizations can now deploy Oracle Exadata in a number of ways, including as a cloud service inside their own datacenter, in the Oracle Cloud, and in a traditional on-premises environment.

Internet of Things (IoT) Marketplaces allow suppliers to build an IoT offering centered around their core offerings

These marketplaces are particularly effective when they are built around a single connection point, such as a platform or gateway; because that simplifies the work enterprise developers need to do on both the front and back end. ThingWorx successfully leveraged its platform alongside its partners’ expertise to offer a comprehensive supplier exchange.
Aeris’ Neo Marketplace provides enterprises not only end-to-end IoT solutions, but also access to support services, APIs, and network services tools. Dell, likewise, worked with its partner program to center its end-to-end marketplace offerings on its IoT edge gateways. Companies like Libelium, Sierra Wireless, and Telus offer solutions in the form of vertical-specific application development and solution kits aimed at enterprise developers. Other companies like Amazon Web Services and Microsoft currently limit their IoT Marketplace offerings to software solutions, but both are looking to integrate their existing program into a cohesive en…

Reduce the friction that enterprise developers encounter when developing Internet of Things (IoT) solutions

ABI Research finds that to reduce the friction that enterprise developers encounter when developing IoT solutions, IoT Marketplaces need to effectively address all components of the IoT value chain. While some IoT Marketplaces currently offer all solution components, many do not have comprehensive offerings. Suppliers are currently working to formalize and expand marketplace offerings and in some cases, integrate them with resources and programs already in place to fully leverage existing relationships.

Emerging IoT Marketplaces as a response to the complexity of current complexities of Internet of Things (IoT)

The reality is clear, is The Internet of Things (IoT) supplier landscape is scattered right now with a diverse array of companies offering a myriad of complex components and solutions. Marketplaces are a response to this complexity designed to reduce the friction buyers face when adopting and implementing IoT solutions. These emerging IoT Marketplaces not only simplify IoT solution creation and adoption, but they also facilitate supplier and buyer interactions ultimately creating open networks that encourage innovation.

Internet of Things (IoT) Suppliers Attempt to Defragment a Diverse IoT Landscape

As companies seek to transform themselves with IoT technologies, they are confronted by an incredibly complex and diverse supplier market from which to build IoT solutions. To address this challenge, suppliers are leveraging ecosystem partnerships to provide end-users with a one-stop-shop portfolio of hardware, software, and services.
