Quantifying Online Ad Spending Phenomenon

According to eMarketer, it's time to compare the numbers. First the Interactive Advertising Bureau (IAB) and PricewaterhouseCoopers (PwC) released the latest update of the "Advertising Revenue Report," which estimated U.S. Internet advertising revenue at over $4 billion for the second quarter of 2006.

Then the Online Publishers Association (OPA) reported that, according to an informal survey of its members, online advertising revenues will grow by 28 percent in the third quarter of 2006 compared to the third quarter of 2005. OPA members, including include, and the Walt Disney Internet Group, said they continue to see strength across all online advertising categories.

Tomorrow eMarketer will release its "U.S. Online Ad Spending" report, which forecasts continued growth in online ad revenues, but at a slower rate in coming years. "We still see robust growth," says eMarketer CEO Geoff Ramsey, "but it is difficult for any industry to sustain a 30 percent-plus growth rate for three years in a row."

The new eMarketer report projects that US online ad spending will grow by 26.8 percent in 2006, reaching a total of just under $16 billion. Looking ahead to 2007, eMarketer projects that the growth rate will fall to a still healthy 15.1 percent. "The Internet will still be growing at a faster rate than television and most other media, but it's going to be coming back down to a sustainable level," Mr. Ramsey told Reuters.

Industrial Cloud Computing Apps Gain Momentum

In the manufacturing industry, cloud computing can help leaders improve their production efficiency by providing them with real-time data about their operations. This has gained the attention of the C-suite. Total forecast Industrial Cloud platform revenue in manufacturing will surpass $300 billion by 2033 with a CAGR of 22.57 percent, driven by solution providers enhancing platform interoperability while expanding partner ecosystems for application development. ABI Research found the cloud computing manufacturing market will grow over the next decade due to the adoption of new architectural frameworks that enhance data extraction and interoperability for manufacturers looking to maximize utility from their data. Industrial Cloud Computing Market Development "Historically, manufacturers have built out their infrastructure to include expensive data housing in the form of on-premises servers. The large initial upfront cost of purchasing, setting up, and maintaining these servers is

Demand for Quantum Computing as a Service

The enterprise demand for quantum computing is still in its early stages, growing slowly. As the technology becomes more usable, we may see demand evolve beyond scientific applications. The global quantum computing market is forecast to grow from $1.1 billion in 2022 to $7.6 billion in 2027, according to the latest worldwide market study by International Data Corporation (IDC). That's a five-year compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 48.1 percent. The forecast includes base Quantum Computing as a Service, as well as enabling and adjacent Quantum Computing as a Service. However, this updated forecast is considerably lower than IDC's previous quantum computing forecast, which was published in 2021, due to lower demand globally. Quantum Computing Market Development In the interim, customer spend for quantum computing has been negatively impacted by several factors, including: slower than expected advances in quantum hardware development, which have delayed potential return on inve
