Demand for Media Tablets, Notebooks and eReaders

If you're looking for signs that the U.S. economy is recovering and that business technology spending has returned, then you should look at the recent purchase activity on 3G and 4G non-handset devices -- such as media tablets, notebooks, and e-readers.

This segment of U.S. business spending has become a larger portion of the overall business wireless spend. According to the latest market study by In-Stat, overall spending in this segment was up nearly 30 percent in 2010 -- when compared with 2009 results.

"A key take away from the research is that the non-handset spending increase trend seems to be universal across all sizes of business," says Greg Potter, Research Analyst at In-Stat.

Apparently, there are several variations in some of the vertical segments but, they too, share a robust 2010 and have a very healthy five-year forecast.

Additional data points from the In-Stat study include:

Enterprise spending makes up over 62 percent of business spending on non-handset data services, spending over $1.9 billion in 2010.

Enterprise (1,000-4,999) will increase spending in 2011 by 19.5 percent in the professional services vertical.

Small Office Home Office (SOHO) spending will surpass $275 billion by 2014.

The healthcare and social services vertical represents the largest share of spending, over $400 million in 2010.

Software-Defined Infrastructure: The Platform of Choice

As more organizations adapt to a hybrid working model for their distributed workforce, enterprise CIOs and CTOs are tasked with delivering new productivity-enabling applications, while also seeking ways to effectively reduce IT cost, complexity, and risk. Traditional IT hardware infrastructure is evolving to more software-based solutions. The worldwide software-defined infrastructure (SDI) combined software market reached $12.17 billion during 2020 -- that's an increase of 5 percent over 2019, according to the latest market study by International Data Corporation (IDC).

Global Pandemic Accelerates the Evolution of Transportation

Given the current trends across the globe, organizations that depend upon the continued growth of personal vehicle ownership will need to consider a plan-B scenario. While some companies will be able to adapt, others may find that their traditional business model has been totally disrupted. According to the latest worldwide market study by Juniper Research, Mobility-as-a-Service (MaaS) will displace over 2.2 billion private car journeys by 2025 -- that's rising from 471 million in 2021. Juniper believes that for MaaS to enjoy widespread adoption, subscription or on-the-go packages need to offer a strong combination of transport modes along with feasible infrastructure changes, high potential for data collection and low barriers to MaaS deployments. Mobility-as-a-Service Market Development The concept of MaaS involves the provision of multi-modal end-to-end travel services through a single platform by which users can determine the best route and price according to real-time traffic
