How IoT Analytics will Reach $5.7 Billion in 2015

In the coming years, the deluge of data from internet connected sensors and other devices will be significant. The revenues generated from integrating, storing, analyzing, and presenting Internet of Things (IoT) data will reach $5.7 billion in 2015, according the the latest global market study by ABI Research.

In the next 5 years, ABI believes that the market will expand dramatically, to an extent that in 2020 it's estimated to account for nearly one-third of all big data and analytics revenues.

"About 60 percent of this year’s revenues come from three key areas -- energy management, security management, as well as monitoring and status applications," said Aapo Markkanen, principal analyst at ABI Research.

Within these segments, there are analytic applications that reduce the cost base of asset-intensive operations (condition-based maintenance), automate routine workflows (surveillance), or even enable new business models (usage-based insurance).

According to ABI's assessment, these early growth drivers also have in common the fact that the economics of IoT connectivity align easily enough with the requirements of analytic modelling.

Making sense of IoT-kind data from machines and sensors data comes often with its unique challenges, such as the need for time-series databases in storage, and for relatively deep domain expertise in analysis.

These kinds of factors create a certain mismatch with many leading technologies that have been designed for more traditional, digital-first analytic environments. This, in turn, is attracting the growth of start-up level activity -- aimed at filling the apparent gaps in the market.

ABI says what's truly remarkable about this market is how much of the innovation actually comes from new start-ups. Take, for instance, the ParStream geo-distributed architecture, the Cyberlightning 3D visualization technology, or the Peaxy work on software-defined data access.

All three address some of the problems that usually come up in discussions with end-users. Meanwhile, of the more incumbent vendors likes of Datawatch, Informatica, Software AG, and Splunk seem well-positioned to seize the emerging IoT big data opportunity.

Digital Transformation Investment at $3.4 Trillion

Business technology leadership matters. Across the globe, more leaders have been pursuing bold Digital Transformation (DX) initiatives with the goal of creating new sources of business value through digital products, services, and experiences. As an additional benefit, the COVID-19 pandemic revealed that digital transformation efforts improve an organization's resilience against global market disruptions. Global DX investment is forecast to reach $3.4 trillion in 2026 with a five-year compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 16.3 percent, according to the latest worldwide market study by International Data Corporation (IDC). Digital Transformation Market Development "Despite strong headwinds from global supply chain constraints, soaring inflation, political uncertainty, and an impending recession, investment in digital transformation is expected to remain robust," said Craig Simpson, senior research manager at IDC . The benefits of investing in DX technology -- including aut

Artificial Intelligence for National Border Security

National border protection agencies are under pressure to provide the highest level of security in the face of growing threats, such as increasing illegal migration and international terrorism. Now, government agencies are embracing advanced border security technologies to aid in effectively and reliably securing national borders. These solutions look to detect and identify potential threats and prevent them from escalating to a point that may jeopardize security. Security Surveillance Market Development Traditional border security patrols and Closed-circuit Television (CCTV) surveillance systems aren't adequate protection, and agencies must increasingly deploy new solutions to stay ahead of criminals and other potential threats to ensure the safety of a country’s borders. According to the latest market study by Juniper Research, the value of the border security technology market will exceed $70 billion globally in 2027 -- that's rising from $48 billion in 2022.
