The newest wave of robotics is being deployed across several industries and a broad range of business processes. As this technology continues to proliferate, it is becoming more important for strategy consulting and systems integration services firms to be able to support their clients in the effort to deploy, integrate, and operate robots in their business processes.</P><P>John Santagate, research director for Service Robotics at IDC, says, "Deploying robots in many new business processes requires tight integration into the existing IT architecture. As companies increasingly turn to service robots, they will subsequently look for guidance and support to enact these implementations. It will become increasingly important for strategy consulting and IT systems integrators to be capable of supporting their clients' robotics-related initiatives."</P> IDC Perspective Mon, 20 Nov 2017 05:00:00 GMT John Santagate TDK Launches New Products and Development Kit at First Developers' Conference http://www.idc.com/getdoc.jsp?containerId=lcUS43176617 <P>TDK InvenSense launches new products and boosts outreach to developers as it expands into new market areas following TDK's acquisition of InvenSense.</P> IDC Link Mon, 20 Nov 2017 05:00:00 GMT Michael J.

IDC views managed cloud services as an extraction view of IDC's technology outsourcing services markets involving application management (AM), hosted application management (HAM), hosting infrastructure services (HIS), IT outsourcing (ITO), and network and endpoint outsourcing services (NEOS). This is the first forecast for this market (for more details, see the Market Definition section as well as <I>IDC</I><I>'</I><I>s </I><I>Worldwide Managed Cloud Services Taxonomy, 2017</I><I>,</I> IDC #<B><A href="/getdoc.jsp?containerId=US43147017">US43147017</A></B>, October 2017).</P><P>This study also includes advice to providers of IT services, an analysis of key market and industry trends by key managed cloud services markets and regions, key market drivers and inhibitors, and significant market developments.</P><P>"The managed cloud services market is creating fundamental changes in the outsourcing industry involving the entrance of new providers, partnership ecosystems, investment requirements, and opportunities, though also bringing with it some critical challenges to players shifting from a world of noncloud (legacy) outsourcing," says David Tapper, VP, Outsourcing and Managed Cloud Services at IDC. "Building a successful managed cloud services business will require that providers build deep knowledge of their customers' businesses, embed professional services as part of MCS offerings, offer a robust portfolio of managed cloud services, provide a management platform for orchestration and instrumentation of partner ecosystems and services, offer a full array of partnerships, create MCS offerings to support industry-specific digital applications, incorporate a robust set of business resiliency and privacy capabilities, and establish critical KPIs to manage transition to a capex world."</P> Market Forecast Mon, 20 Nov 2017 05:00:00 GMT David Tapper, Jason Bremner, George Mironescu, Douglas Hayward, Cathy Huang, Vladimír Kroa, Francesca Ciarletta, Courtney Munroe, Waldemar Schuster, Jonathan Tullett, Petr Zajonc, Peter Marston, Satoshi Matsumoto, Daniel Povis, Jennifer Thomson, Seiichiro Yoshii, Takuya Uemura we.trade: The First Financial Services DLT Consortium to Go to Production Phase? http://www.idc.com/getdoc.jsp?containerId=EMEA43202917 <P>This IDC Perspective examines we.trade to understand the success factors that contributed to its evolution toward a commercial status and the challenges that it has found along the way.

This is important as it represents an evolution to a more agile mode of operations. With over 70% of organisations having a level of involvement in developing a technology strategy, there is a shift to the development of an organisation's digital leadership programme, which challenges the traditional functional role-based structure (sales, finance, and so forth) to something that is more aligned with the areas of omni-/customer experience, operational excellence, information integration, and worksource optimisation.</P><P>Hybrid is the key investment theme from a technology perspective (on- to off-premise, off-premise into public cloud, and platforms for orchestrating across the environment). Collaboration has the highest overall intent for organisations to invest in, but there is a notable shift towards business automation as opposed to more communication- or content-based investments.</P> Market Presentation Fri, 17 Nov 2017 05:00:00 GMT Adam Dodds, Donnie Krassiyenko Patient Centricity, Connectivity, and Value: Highlights from the 2017 Whinn Conference http://www.idc.com/getdoc.jsp?containerId=EMEA43182217 <P>The IDC Health Insights Perspective summarizes the key themes and discussion points from the 2017 Whinn Conference (http://www.whinn.dk/) hosted by the Region of Southern Denmark, Municipality of Odense, and Odense University Hospital.
