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.

Big Data Analytics Revenue to Reach $215.7 Billion

Across the globe, more leaders seek actionable insight from the customer data they've stored in huge data lakes. Worldwide spending on big data and business analytics (BDA) solutions is forecast to reach $215.7 billion in 2021 -- that's an increase of 10.1 percent over 2020, according to the latest worldwide market study by International Data Corporation (IDC). Moreover, BDA technology investment will likely gain momentum over the next five years as the global economy recovers from the COVID-19 pandemic. The compound annual growth rate (CAGR) for global BDA spending over the 2021-2025 forecast period will be 12.8 percent. Big Data Analytics Market Development "As executives seek solutions to enable better, faster decisions, we're seeing relatively healthy BDA spending across all industries. Leveraging data for insights into everything from internal business operations to the customer journey is top of mind and of strategic importance," said Jessica Goepfert, vice

Warehouse Robot Deployment Gains New Momentum

The retail and wholesale back-office infrastructure market is being transformed by technology. The warehousing industry has accelerated automation efforts due to the increased order volume and labor shortages driven by the global pandemic. In addition to technology solutions such as handheld devices with enhanced capabilities, autonomous, collaborative, and mobile robots are proving to be the fastest-growing productivity-enhancing solution in the warehouse workspace. Commercial Robotics Market Development According to the latest worldwide market study by ABI Research, global commercial robot revenue in warehouses will have a Compounded Annual Growth Rate (CAGR) of over 23 percent from 2021 to 2030 and exceed $51 billion by 2030. "Mobile robots are at the heart of the warehouse robotics market and account for most shipments and revenue. These robots, made up of Autonomous Guided Vehicles (AGVs) and Autonomous Mobile Robots (AMRs), are being used to move goods within the warehouse a

Hybrid Work: How to Enhance Employee Productivity

When you hire qualified talent for a key role and trust them to perform, you'll likely achieve the best outcome. Skilled and experienced people will deliver results, regardless of the challenges. That's a key lesson learned from the pandemic experience as most knowledge workers were asked to work from their homes. However, some resist returning to an open-plan office. It's unacceptable. Meanwhile, forward-thinking leaders decided a "return to normal" is undesirable, and in hindsight, everyone should aspire to be more accomodating than before. Therefore, location flexibility is okay. Hybrid Workforce Market Development How will people adapt to these changes? They'll apply the modern IT tools at their disposal. They'll learn new skills and thrive. Nearly 80 percent of employees are now successfully using online collaboration tools for work in 2021 -- that's up from just over half of workers in 2019, according to the latest market study by Gartner.
