Accelerated computing is quickly gaining traction in the enterprise

For those who are unfamiliar, Accelerated Computing is the ability to accelerate applications and workloads by offloading a portion of the processing onto adjacent silicon subsystems such as graphics processing units (GPUs) and field programmable gate arrays (FPGAs). Accelerated computing is gaining traction in the enterprise as businesses seek solutions for overcoming the limitations of central processing units (CPUs) for workloads that require data processing acceleration. Such apps/workloads rely on (single stream) pipeline processing where data locality is important for quick handoffs between various components.

Here is how Accelerated computing is used

Accelerated computing is used for unstructured data management workloads, including cognitive, deep learning, artificial intelligence, machine learning, and similar types of applications; data analytics workloads, including visual analytics; technical and scientific workloads; cloud computing, both internally and in the form of acceleration as a service; and edge computing.

Smartwatch Within global digital fitness market

Multi functionality features, growing health awareness, and rising in disposable income is at the core of stakes. For many analysts, within global digital fitness market, smartwatch is expected to remain the largest segment by product type. Research and Markets reveals that, North America is expected to remain the largest region due to an increasing obesity rate and growing awareness on physical fitness with the availability of a more sophisticated digital wearable fitness device.

The future of the global digital fitness market looks promising

Current trends are interesting with promising opportunities in smart wearable fitness devices and smart wearable sports devices. The most exciting is to see increasing awareness on fitness, rising demand of user-friendly and self-monitoring devices. According to Research and Markets, emerging trends, which have a direct impact on the dynamics of the digital fitness industry, include integration and cross-compatibility of personal health data and introduction of cross over products.

The most exciting regarding the global Hypervisor Market

Ease of operating and managing the virtual infrastructure is at the core of stakes. Then, one can observe that, Virtual Desktop Infrastructure (VDI) offers enhanced user experience compared to the traditional desktop infrastructure. The benefits of VDI include application compatibility and the authorization of access to data and applications from any location. User access can also be modified through a centralized management software. Additional endpoints can be deployed quickly to save on costs and ensure enhanced scalability compared to a traditional PC network. VDI also offers easy maintenance where administrators can remove or change any software based on requirements. The global Hypervisor Market is expected to grow 4.4% during 2017-2021; with key Vendors like Citrix, Microsoft, VMware & Red Hat, according to Research and Market.

There are many reasons for enterprises to consider data center consolidation projects

Steadily, one can observe that, there are many reasons for enterprises to consider data center consolidation projects,including the cost reduction and acquisition of enterprises. Research and Markets reveals that, consolidation helps in saving the cost up to 30%, reducing the power consumption by 55%, enhancing security up to 35%, and improving efficiency by 50%. In the US, the federal government is involved in the consolidation of data centers to reduce operational costs and shift investments toward an efficient computing platform.

Conversational interfaces like chatbots and virtual assistants

Very exciting to observe that, many analysts believe that, conversational interfaces like chatbots and virtual assistants are in the midst of an enterprise market evolution.
At the core of stakes, we have the three leading chatbot development platforms: Amazon, Facebook, and Microsoft, accruing more than 90,000 developers this year, according to ABI Research.
The firm predicts that the revolution will occur in three phases: enterprise-proprietary solutions, common developer tools on competing platforms, and then at-scale deployments and the proliferation of third-party Software as a Service (SaaS) solutions.

Today, most chatbots focus on the customer service function

Steadily, one can observe that, messaging platforms replace carrier-based SMS and MMS texting in consumer popularity, and are also challenging the way that workgroup and team communications occur.
Today, most chatbots focus on the customer service function; at the same time, a lot of experimentation is occurring with marketing campaigns to identify prospective customers and build brand affinity.
Prominent brands leading experimentation include Budweiser, General Electric, Nationwide Financial, Nissan, Pizza Hut, Taco Bell, USAA, Vodafone, and Whole Foods Market.

Virtual assistants automate the recurring business tasks that employees are required to use in the workplace

For those who are unfamiliar, Virtual assistants automate the recurring business tasks that employees are required to use in the workplace, including interactions with Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) systems and line of business software, including Microsoft, Oracle, Salesforce, SAP, and others. 

According to ABI Research, Automation reduces the training each system and role requires, which can be as much as 18% of the cost to implement an ERP system resulting in more than US$100,000 savings for a large enterprise.

The firm also reveals that, Virtual assistant automation also eliminates the time and cost for IS/IT to phase out legacy systems while gaining the ability to adopt modern technologies including mobile apps and messaging platforms.

The amount of savings that a chatbot can provide an enterprise is difficult to measure, but the overall benefit is clear

One can observe that, while the amount of savings that a chatbot can provide an enterprise is difficult to measure, it is obvious that, the use of automation and predictive capabilities will undoubtedly enable current business models to be augmented.
“The value might be in customer satisfaction, in training methodologies, or in system deployments; but the overall benefit is clear. The interfaces create a new way for brands to engage with audiences and for businesses to simplify employee tasks,” says Jeff Orr, Research Director at ABI Research.

3DEXPERIENCE Platform for Manufacturing Operations Management and Product Lifecycle Management

Very interesting to see that, Boeing will deploy the 3DEXPERIENCE platform in phases and rely on Winning Program, Co-Design to Target, Ready for rate, build to operate and License to fly industry solution experiences for aerospace and defense to deepen its end to end digital collaboration, design, engineering, analysis, manufacturing planning and shop floor execution capabilities throughout the enterprise.
