rssbigdata IDC RSS alerts Where Are Automated Systems Becoming More Critical to Investments? <P>This IDC Survey Spotlight examines where automated systems are becoming more critical to investments. With remote work and new digital services comes the need for cutting-edge automation to help build resiliency into digital transformation. This will help offset some of the need to increase head count by supporting new capabilities with fewer staff, saving resources that can then be deployed to more critical functions. Governments are prioritizing the areas that automation can help them most including data protection/security, infrastructure resource management, and IT asset provisioning and management.</P> IDC Survey Spotlight Fri, 23 Apr 2021 04:00:00 GMT Curt Savoie Japan Big Data and Analytics Technology and Service Forecast, 2020−2024 <P>This IDC study provides 2019 big data and analytics (BDA) technology and service market performance and forecast from 2020 to 2024. The COVID-19 pandemic affects the Japan economy, and it is likely that corporate IT spending will also be affected by the economy. The Japan BDA technology and service market is also predicted to be affected by the COVID-19 pandemic, and the market forecasts used in this research report consider the impact and outlook of the COVID-19 pandemic as of the end of March 2020. "The impact of the COVID-19 pandemic can considerably affect the Japan economy, and this impact is unavoidable in the Japan BDA market.

Video analytic software is the game changer for video surveillance. Such software not only enables the management of large numbers of cameras, but it also automates detection and categorization of activities which the cameras see. Such software also enables the integration of video data into other business applications so that activities like process improvement can leverage video data. Many technologies are now being leveraged to enable advanced video analytics. Technologies such as big data, the cloud, machine learning, deep learning, and analytics at the edge are all utilized to facilitate the extraction of insights from video data in near real time.</P><P>According to Mike Jude, research director for Video Surveillance and Vision Applications at IDC, "Video analytics are the technology that will enable video surveillance to transcend security to leverage video data for business process improvement, as well as innovative new technologies such as TaaS." "Video data is a rich source of intelligence that has not been readily accessible to business intelligence applications until recently," he added. "Now video analytics will increasingly define the video surveillance market and will be a primary driver of growth."</P> IDC TechScape Thu, 08 Apr 2021 04:00:00 GMT Mike Jude Asset-Oriented Manufacturing Value Chain 2021 Investment Guide <P>This IDC Tech Buyer Presentation provides IT budget benchmark data and priorities for the asset-oriented value chain (AOVC), those manufacturers that are heavily influenced by the capabilities, capacity, and efficiency of their assets, such as chemicals, pulp and paper, and metals.</P><P>This presentation was shared with clients in March 2021.</P> Tech Buyer Presentation Mon, 05 Apr 2021 04:00:00 GMT Reid Paquin Brand-Oriented Manufacturing Value Chain 2021 Investment Guide <P>This IDC Tech Buyer Presentation provides IT budget benchmark data and priorities for the brand-oriented value chain (BOVC), those manufacturers that invest significantly in protecting and promoting their brands, specifically the consumer products (CP) industry.</P><P>This presentation was shared with clients in March 2021.</P> Tech Buyer Presentation Mon, 05 Apr 2021 04:00:00 GMT Reid Paquin Engineering-Oriented Manufacturing Value Chain 2021 Investment Guide <P>This IDC Tech Buyer Presentation provides IT budget benchmark data and priorities for the engineering-oriented value chain (EOVC) — those manufacturers that must deal with complex products, such as automotive, aerospace and defense (A&D), and farm, construction, and industrial machinery.</P><P>This presentation was shared with clients in March 2021.</P> Tech Buyer Presentation Mon, 05 Apr 2021 04:00:00 GMT Reid Paquin European SMB Software Priorities <P>This IDC Survey examines the software priorities of European small and medium-sized businesses (SMBs).

The study examines individual technology categories and provides additional insights about the speed of adoption, technology potential for success (risk), and level of market buzz so that end users may make their own decisions about investment.</P><P>"There has been a distinct transition from a site-focused model, employing elaborate clinical trial methodology to a lean, agile, and flexible decentralized model, which is more 'patient centric.' While COVID-19 has served as a major propulsive force in triggering this change, the industry has recognized the value of technology adoption as a key enabler in driving patient centricity, and lot of this may now be here to stay," says Dr. Nimita Limaye, research VP, Life Sciences R&D Strategy and Technology at IDC Health Insights. "It is important to carefully analyze which technologies are best suited for the appropriate trial as this is not a one-size-fits-all model. The industry needs to leverage technologies such as wearables, telehealth solutions, social media, and others to reduce the patient burden and build a closer patient connect. Analytics should be used to unravel the data chaos, drive real-time monitoring and data sharing to build transparency and trust, and redesign the patient experience."</P> IDC TechScape Tue, 30 Mar 2021 04:00:00 GMT Nimita Limaye European Big Data and Analytics Software Forecast, 2020-2024 <P>This IDC Market Forecast study presents a view of analytics software revenue in Europe from historical year 2019 through to the 2020–2024 forecast period.</P><P>"The complexity and scale of data being produced and used by businesses across sectors are more than humans can handle," said Wiktor Markiewicz, senior market analyst, IDC EMEA.
