"Thus this IDC Perspective gives purchasers of IoT technology a view into which IoT platform vendors are focused on their industry, the types of applications and solutions those vendors offer to their industry, and some of the key IoT platform characteristics they should consider across use cases."</P> IDC Perspective Fri, 20 Apr 2018 04:00:00 GMT Stacy Crook IDC TechBrief: Visibility Solutions for the Retail Enterprise <P>This IDC TechBrief describes visibility platforms for experiential retail. Visibility is being enabled in experiential retail to connect the dots between people and things, infusing retail processes and assets with intelligence that ultimately improves consumer experience. Objectives of initiatives tend to target improved productivity of assets, inventory, and people, as well as directly engaging the consumer in convenient, fast, and trustworthy interactions and checkout processes. This document provides a snapshot of the technology, technology benefits, adoption patterns, metrics, risks, and key vendors that offer the technology.</P><P>According to Leslie Hand, vice president, IDC Retail Insights, "The risk of not implementing visibility platforms in retail is high. Retailers consider visibility a strategic ingredient toward digitally transforming the consumer experience, making sure that inventory is in the right place at the right time, and that consumer and employee processes are as productive, efficient, and seamless as possible. Luckily, projects can be selected to maximize ROI in the short term, providing the groundwork for continuing cascading benefits with each use case applied. At a time when the ability to execute efficiently to manage basic operational processes and to assist consumers to find and buy products more efficiently literally makes or breaks consumer relationships, retailers cannot afford to wait any longer to deploy visibility solutions."</P> IDC TechBrief Fri, 20 Apr 2018 04:00:00 GMT Leslie Hand IDC's Worldwide Embedded and Intelligent Systems Taxonomy, 2018: Views by Internet System Landscape, Industry, Enabling Technology, and Artificial Intelligence <P>This IDC study presents four views into IDC's taxonomy for the embedded and intelligent systems markets:</P><UL><LI>The internet system landscape view looks across the layout of the internet that shows the relationships among the interconnected system types and the resulting path on which data travels from the edge of the internet to its core.</LI><LI>The industry segment view looks up and down the system types and how they segment across their intended functions, both general purpose and application specific.</LI><LI>The enabling technology view looks inside systems and sizes the markets for major technologies that enable systems' compute, connectivity, sensing, security, and storage capabilities.</LI></UL><UL><LI>The execution view looks at what is managing the computing and how that changes the nature of the electronic system: a human user or an artificial user.</LI></UL><P>"The advent of near-ubiquitous connectivity among systems, combined with sensors communicating evermore data and scalable data processing semiconductors, has transformed the landscape of the internet, with increasingly application-specific systems and robust infrastructure, both machine-run and human-run intelligent and embedded systems." — Shane Rau, vice president of Computing Semiconductors</P> Taxonomy Fri, 20 Apr 2018 04:00:00 GMT Shane Rau, Mario Morales, Michael J.
