Hackers and criminals are getting more and more sophisticated and are devising more complex attacks which can cause significant damage to the affected parties. Companies are adopting more advanced solutions to protect their vital assets against these attacks. While data security and device usage policies were a concern of security teams until now, they are now becoming a management concern with the implementation of BYOD (Bring Your Own Device) and IoT (Internet of Things). Cybersecurity budgets have been increasing globally among companies in every industry vertical. With increased funding around cybersecurity, more startups have emerged in the space and have leveraged advanced technologies to develop products that have helped enterprises manage their security function better. In brief, this research service covers the following points: Cybersecurity & Enterprises An overview Drivers and challenges for Adoption of Best Practices in Cybersecurity Technologies Impacting the Future of Cybersecurity Considerations for Management Decision Making. Mon, 31 Dec 2018 00:00:00 +0000 Redefining the Future of Mobility with Blockchain The rising demand for faster and more secure transactions along with full transparency has made Blockchain one of the fastest growing technology markets in the world. Banks and technology providers are investing heavily in R&D activity related to verifying and recording finance transactions. Also, major US technology companies such as IBM, Microsoft, and startup innovators are developing Blockchain-based services and applications, thereby driving the global Blockchain market. Blockchain technology is positioned to meet the increasingly complex demands of the digital-first future through smart contract capabilities, middlemen elimination and provenance and consensus on all transactions. Blockchain greatly reduces transaction costs by eliminating middlemen along the supply chain. This is a key factor that will drive the adoption of this technology across all industries. Blockchain is capable of resolving issues prevalent across industry sectors by introducing Blockchain-based micro payments and contract pricing models, thereby eliminating the transaction cost. In brief, this research service covers the following points: Blockchain An overview Drivers and challenges for Blockchain adoption Blockchain-based automotive applications Use cases in the Auto Sector Patent and Implementation Scenarios Sun, 30 Dec 2018 00:00:00 +0000 Customer Perceptions and Preferences of Big Data and Analytics, United States, 2018 The world is creating 2.5 exabytes of data daily. Every organization needs to access that tidal wave of information to make better, faster decisions or risks being left behind. We have discovered that IT decision makers find that cyber security, big data and analytics, and data centers are the most impactful for revenue growth and cost reduction efforts when compared to a host of other IT and communications solutions. BDA is a top 3 investment priority across all IT and Communications solutions. Over 90% improved customer metrics with BDA implementations. Over 75% reduced customer turnover with BDA installations BDA is primarily used to improve internal business processes and to make better decisions.--BEGIN PROMO--

Research Scope

We used the online survey method to interview 400 U.S. based big data and analytics purchase decision makers across business sizes. The overall research objective was to measure the current use and future decision making behavior toward Big Data & Analytics (BDA).

Frost & Sullivan aimed to:

  • Monitor the status and customer perceptions of Big Data & Analytics trends
  • Assess the current and future use of Big Data & Analytics
  • Evaluate factors that drive investments in Big Data & Analytics

This study also covers the impact of artificial intelligence and Internet of Things on BDA implementations.

The Paradigm of Digital Industries Beyond Vision Tue, 11 Dec 2018 05:56:44 +0000 ASEAN and Taiwan Data Center Services Market, Forecast to 2024 Owing to the growing presence of hyperscale cloud service providers, extensive penetration of Internet connectivity as well as keen focus on cybersecurity and data privacy, the demand for data storage and managed hosting services is expected to grow exponentially across the ASEAN and Taiwan region (henceforth collectively referred to as ASEAN ). In mature data center markets such as Singapore, which still remains the data center hub in the ASEAN region, the demand for wholesale colocation from global cloud service providers will drive data center services revenue growth. Upcoming data center markets such as Malaysia, Indonesia, and Thailand are poised to experience exponential data center growth due to abundant availability of resources as well as conducive government policies concerning data center infrastructure. Governments in these high-growth markets are vying to increase data center adoption to promote digital transformation across industry sectors through effective strategic partnerships with global as well as local data center vendors as well as offering them tax incentives. Emerging data center markets such as Vietnam and Myanmar are witnessing growing data center penetration, thanks to local service providers, but these countries lack the necessary connectivity and infrastructure capabilities to attract global data center vendors. Governments in these emerging economies, are, therefore, focusing on improving the readiness of these countries to support hyperscale data centers by enhancing telecommunications and network infrastructure. In established data center markets such as Singapore as well as countries witnessing high data center growth rates such as Malaysia, Indonesia, and Thailand, governments have been undertaking several smart city projects as a part of their digital transformation initiatives. Data center service providers are, therefore, adopting innovative solutions such as data center infrastructure management, data center modernization, and edge or modular data centers to optimize operational workloads and enhance service delivery by limiting latency related issues. With rising power costs across the region, many enterprises are taking a keen interest in management capabilities that enable them to generate operational insights into their on-premise data center infrastructure.--BEGIN PROMO--
