Transmedia Newswire - Multiplatform Communications


Starting today, I'm evolving my Digital Lifescapes postings on a Saturday. First and foremost, my weekly summaries of research by eMarketer will now be posted on my Transmedia Newswire site.

Going forward, my weekend posts will be different than in the past -- I'll be sharing more about that editorial transition in an upcoming post.

The eMarketer study insights that I share will now be shorter, more frequent and include a link to the source webpage - here's an example from today. Moreover, that content will no longer appear on Digital Lifescapes.

Note, I'm the editor and publisher of the Transmedia Newswire.

If you subscribe to the Digital Lifescapes feed, then you may want to also subscribe to the Transmedia Newswire feed -- which now includes the eMarketer study summaries and noteworthy insights from numerous other sources.

Perhaps you're wondering, why change the GeoActive Group daily publishing schedule?

First, I've wanted to increase my focus on Internet-oriented market development related study findings, but have not been able to invest the time to produce more long-form posts. Second, I'm exploring Commercial Transmedia practices in the B2B Marketing realm that I've adapted from the Entertainment industry's multi-platform storytelling pioneers.

As you may recall, I've previously outlined my guidance on the transformation of marketing communications in the 21st century -- from a predictable monologue to an engaging dialogue.

The ongoing adoption of transmedia storytelling practices is the next phase of my own progressive journey to seek ways that improve the effectiveness of the content I will publish.

I welcome your comments or suggestions -- as I proceed along this path.

How the COVID-19 Pandemic Advanced Telehealth Adoption

The global COVID-19 pandemic has accelerated digital transformation across many industries. As an example, consider the healthcare sector. Some routine medical situations can be diagnosed and resolved online. While the trend was already in motion long before the pandemic arrived, the adoption of telehealth increased rapidly in 2020. Around the world, many governments responded to the disruption and inaccessibility of healthcare facilities by loosening previous regulations and restrictions on the practice of telemedicine apps, and teleconsultations. This decision resulted in the mass adoption of these medical services among patients and providers. According to the latest market study by Juniper Research, telemedicine will save the healthcare industry $21 billion in costs by 2025 -- that's rising from an estimated $11 billion in 2021. This increased app usage represents an anticipated growth rate of over 80 percent in the next four years. Telehealth Services Market Development The co

Worldwide Semiconductor Demand will Accelerate in 2021

The technology sector is a key driver of the U.S. economy. Therefore, components like semiconductors play an important role in America's future. The 'CHIPS for America Act' is a new law that calls for incentives on domestic semiconductor manufacturing and investments in research and development. But these renewed efforts will require years of ongoing commitment. Meanwhile, despite the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic, the semiconductor market performed well in 2020. However, new demand by industry was uneven throughout last year due to global lockdowns, remote working adoption, and shifts in consumer and commercial buying behavior. Worldwide semiconductor revenue grew to $464 billion in 2020 -- that's an increase of 10.8 percent compared to 2019, according to the latest market study by International Data Corporation (IDC). Semiconductor Technology Market Development IDC now forecasts that the semiconductor market will reach $522 billion in 2021, that's a 12.5 percent

How Edge Computing and AI Applications Drive IoT

The global pandemic has accelerated the adoption of emerging technologies, including edge computing and TinyML. As more CIOs and CTOs seek ways to capture and process data at the edge of their enterprise IT network, the demand has fueled investment for Internet of Things (IoT) applications. According to the latest worldwide market study by ABI Research, the global edge Artificial Intelligence (AI), Software-as-a-Service (SaaS), and turnkey service market will grow at a CAGR of 46 percent between 2020 and 2025 to reach $7.2 billion. This is 25 percent of the global edge AI market, which is estimated to be $28 billion by 2025. The market is comprised of edge AI chipsets, SaaS, and turnkey services, as well as professional services. As the benefits of edge AI becomes more obvious, enterprises are searching for edge AI solutions that offer low latency and are fully secured to assist them with data-based analysis or decision-making.
