Japan Internet of Things: Infrastructure and the Intelligent Edge (Japanese Version with Key English Language Reports)

IDC's Japan Internet of Things: Infrastructure and the Intelligent Edge (Japanese Version with Key English Language Reports) service provides in-depth analysis and forecasts IT infrastructure to realize IoT. In this service, the definition of IoT infrastructure is based on the three-layer model of IoT (cloud or datacenter, edge computing, and IoT endpoint), which is IoT basic architecture. IoT infrastructure for the cloud or datacenter layer is defined as "IoT core infrastructure," and IoT infrastructure for the edge computing layer is defined as "IoT edge infrastructure." IDC reports the new business opportunity of IoT infrastructure in terms of data and analysis by capturing the market trends in Japan. All studies are designed to provide effective guidance that is essential for strategic and tactical planning, product management and development, and formulating critical marketing strategies.
