SOHO Tech Spending will Surpass $17 Billion in 2015

The developments in office system and business communication technology have helped to foster what has been a significant rise in telecommuters.

Recent economic conditions have also helped to create, in many cases out of necessity, a large self-employed and home-based labor force.

The combination of the two has been instrumental in the growth of the SOHO (single office/home office) work environment. That expansion in turn has led In-Stat to forecast that SOHO business technology spending will surpass $17 billion in 2015.

"The overall trend in SOHO spending will see a 20 percent increase over the next five years,” says Greg Potter, Analyst at In-Stat.

According to In-Stat's latest market assessment, there will be pockets of spending in business technology products and segments that are more significant than others.

For example, healthcare and social services, construction, and retail trade market segments will experience the largest overall gains over the forecast period -- each increasing their overall spend by $240 million.

Meanwhile, cloud computing -- as a product category -- continues to experience the largest overall percentage of growth.

Insights from In-Stat's latest market study includes:
  • Software as a service (SaaS) spending will increase to almost $800 million by 2015.
  • The professional services vertical segment will spend 2.5 billion in 2013.
  • Wireless data spending will increase 45 percent from 2010-2015.
  • Cloud computing continues to experience the largest growth in terms of percentage, growing roughly 150 percent.

Mobility-as-a-Service Creates Disruptive Travel Options

Building on significant advances in big data, analytics, and the Internet of Things (IoT), more innovative transit service offerings aim to increase public transport ridership and reduce emissions or congestion within metropolitan areas. By providing these services through smartphone apps, the transit services also significantly increase user convenience, providing information on different human mobility offerings -- including public transport, ridesharing, and autonomous vehicles. Mobility-as-a-Service Market Development According to the latest market study by Juniper Research, Mobility-as-a-Service (MaaS) subscribers will generate $53 billion in revenue for MaaS platform providers by 2027 -- that's rising from $5.3 billion in 2021. Let's start with a basic definition. MaaS is the provision of multi-modal end-to-end travel services through single platforms, by which users can determine an optimal route and price. The study identified a monthly subscription model as key to incr

Robocall Mitigation Solutions to Halt Criminal Threats

If you answer the phone and hear a recorded message instead of a live person, it's likely a robocall. A robocall is a phone call that uses a computerized autodialer to deliver a pre-recorded message. In 2020, the U.S. Federal Trade Commission (FTC) received 2.8 million consumer complaints about robocalls. Offering solutions to robocalling and associated fraudulent business practices, computerized mitigation platforms are an integral part of the solution. Platforms that are focused on actionable systems to disrupt unsolicited and potentially criminal phone calls help telecom service providers and industry regulators. Issues of whether one-size-fits-all developments are sufficient to be effective across the spectrum need to be addressed, and whether a single telecom network operator working unilaterally with a third-party platform could compromise desired or mandatory industry-wide standards. Robocall Mitigation Market Development According to the latest worldwide market study by Jun

Upside for New 5G Network Transport Infrastructure

The global mobile communication sector is in the midst of a significant network infrastructure upgrade to support the introduction of new high-bandwidth and low-latency broadband service offerings.  Telecom service provider data centers have an important role in fifth-generation (5G) network deployments. Providers undergoing their transition to Stand-Alone (SA) 5G must understand the technical demands of telco data centers and the key enablers of those offerings. According to the latest worldwide market study by ABI Research, the major prerequisites of 5G and the emerging transport solutions would help operators position themselves to successfully capitalize on the new revenue opportunities from delivering differentiated 5G connectivity services. 5G Transport Network Market Development "The rise of the telco data center has a high degree of confluence with the requirements of SA 5G architectures. SA 5G and its increasing reliance on telco data centers can be attributed to the incr
