Big Data Analytics Apps Transform IoT Operations

As more enterprises embrace the Internet of Things (IoT), we're seeing an increase in demand for analytics apps that can extract insight and meaning from sources of big data. Vendors are now busy identifying opportunities for software and professional services to assist buyers with their transformation projects.

According to the latest market study by Technology Business Research (TBR), 57 percent of analytics software customers in IT departments believe analytics adoption 'significantly' or 'very significantly' changed their internal operations and their relationships with lines of business (LOB) leaders.

Additionally, 28 percent of surveyed IT buyers reported a moderately significant impact.

"IT and LOB decision makers play important roles in analytics purchasing and implementation," said Andrew Smith, software analyst at TBR.

However, the unique demands of IoT require organizational and operational changes to ensure the success of customer analytics implementation, and for IT organizations to effectively train others to apply analytics solutions in their day-to-day business activities.

TBR research found the top three IT operational pain points related to analytics adoption were:

  • Re-engineering of internal IT processes and workflows using data and insights. 
  • Training end users on how to utilize new analytics applications or practices.
  • Determining which analytics tools, platforms or software applications would best suit the organization’s needs, prior to purchase.

At least 70 percent of respondents reported being at least moderately likely to use professional services to help execute operational transformation -- highlighting the significant vendor opportunity created by analytics-driven upheaval in IT.

Impact of Analytics on Digital Transformation

TBR believes that analytics adoption changed the way that many IT departments already make decisions, organize themselves, and manage purchasing and implementation of digital transformation solutions.

According to the TBR assessment, as new waves of organizational change and business process re-engineering directly impact mainstream IT leaders, the savvy vendors with skilled and experienced professional services talent will benefit in the near term.

During the worldwide market study, TBR analyzed survey data of 178 analytics software and professional services buyers who identified their department as the IT organization.

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

Hyper-automation Propels Superior Business Process Redesign

When the world was disrupted by a global pandemic during 2020, many CEOs and their board of directors were consumed by reacting to immediate problems. Meanwhile, a few forwarding-thinking enterprise leaders also paused to invest in accelerating their prescient digital transformation agenda. What enables executives to envision an opportunity while others see only challenges? Strategic foresight, and a willingness to embrace the apparent changes that are transforming the legacy status quo. During this period of uncertainty, hyper-automation investment has gained new momentum. Hyperautomation is the application of advanced technologies that augment humans by helping to streamline processes in new ways that are significantly more impactful than the legacy approach. Hyperautomation Market Development The global market for technology that enables hyperautomation will reach $596.6 billion in 2022, according to the latest worldwide market study by Gartner. This is up from $481.6 billion in 202
