Cloud (software, platforms, and infrastructure), Industrial IoT (IIoT), and Mobile Edge Computing (MEC) represent three powerful technologies that are driving substantial innovation within ICT. Cloud Computing technology and the “as a service” business model is transforming Services, Platforms, and Infrastructure (SPI) for the entire ICT ecosystem (data centers, storage providers, CDN providers, broadband service providers, etc.) as well as enterprise across virtually every industry vertical.
IIoT represents a substantial opportunity for both the centralized cloud “as a service” model for software, platforms, and infrastructure as well as distributed computing often referred to as Fog Computing wherein IIoT edge computing will avail industry of real-time processing and analytics. MEC will enable many new and enhanced applications and services including improvements in Augmented Reality, Location-based Services, Enterprise-specific Context Aware Services, Real-time Data as a Service (DaaS), and more.
This research evaluates the global cloud computing marketplace including centralized and distributed services, platforms, and infrastructure. The report also analyzes the market for cloud computing “as a service” across major industry verticals as well as carrier cloud services and market opportunities for cloud support of IoT networks and associated apps and services. The report includes detailed forecasts for the aforementioned from 2017 - 2022.
This research also assesses the technologies, players, and solutions relied upon for Cloud Computing in IIoT. The report analyzes the impact of SaaS, PaaS, and IaaS upon IIoT as well as Cloud Computing software, platforms, and infrastructure in support of edge computing. The report also assesses market opportunities for Cloud Computing support of IIoT Devices and the Objects/Things that will be monitored, actuated, and controlled through IoT enabled processes. The report includes detailed forecasts for the global and regional outlook as well as by industry vertical, devices, and objects/things from 2017 to 2022.
This research also evaluates MEC technology, architecture and building blocks, ecosystem, market drivers, applications, solutions, and deployment challenges. The report also analyzes MEC industry initiatives, leading companies, and solutions. It includes a market assessment and forecast for MEC users and MEC revenue globally, regionally, and within the enterprise market for years 2017 to 2022. Forecasts include MEC infrastructure (equipment, platforms, software, APIs, and services).
