Worldwide Business Use Smartphone 2013-2017 Forecast Update

LONDON, Jan. 9, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Reportbuyer.com just published a new market research report:

Worldwide Business Use Smartphone 2013-2017 Forecast Update

This IDC study presents the five-year forecast for business use smartphone shipments worldwide by operating system and user type (consumer, employee liable, and corporate liable).

As the worldwide smartphone market continues its aggressive growth in the years ahead, so does the trend toward greater business use for smartphones. The trend toward BYOD acceptance continues its ascent in enterprises throughout the world, though the corporate-liable model is still very much alive and well, with certain enterprises opting to maintain tight control over devices and furnish them directly. IDC believes that by the end of 2013, 132.3 million smartphones will end up as employee-liable devices, up a 50.3% from the 88.1 million smartphones in 2012. In the same vein, corporate-liable smartphone shipments will reach 61.4 million units in 2013, up 18.5% from the 51.8 million units in 2012. This will lead to a total of 193.7 million business use smartphone shipments in 2013, up a strong 38.5% from the 139.9 million units in 2012. Total employee-liable smartphone shipments in 2017 will reach 328.4 million units, resulting in a CAGR of 30.1% for 2012-2017. Corporate-liable smartphone shipments will reach 88 million units, resulting in a CAGR of 11.2%. Total business use smartphone shipments will reach 416.4 million units in 2017 at a CAGR of 24.4% for 2012-2017.

"As the world becomes mobile, smartphone use for business purposes rises in sync," said Ben Hoffman, research analyst with IDC's Mobile Enterprise Research team. "As employees continue to demand the ability to use the devices of their choosing, and as enterprises begin to incorporate BYOD within their organization, it is critical to ensure the right policies and strategies are in place so both sides -- employees and enterprise -- reap the benefits of leveraging employee-liable mobile devices."

In 2014, Amazon announced a new form of compute called Lambda. We didn't know it at the time, but this represented a fundamental shift in what we expect from cloud computing. Now, all of the major cloud computing vendors want to take part in this disruptive technology. In his session at 20th Cloud Expo, John Jelinek IV, a web developer at Linux Academy, will discuss why major players like AWS, Microsoft Azure, IBM Bluemix, and Google Cloud Platform are all trying to sidestep VMs and containers...

A critical component of any IoT project is what to do with all the data being generated. This data needs to be captured, processed, structured, and stored in a way to facilitate different kinds of queries. Traditional data warehouse and analytical systems are mature technologies that can be used to handle certain kinds of queries, but they are not always well suited to many problems, particularly when there is a need for real-time insights.
Providing secure, mobile access to sensitive data sets is a critical element in realizing the full potential of cloud computing. However, large data caches remain inaccessible to edge devices for reasons of security, size, format or limited viewing capabilities. Medical imaging, computer aided design and seismic interpretation are just a few examples of industries facing this challenge. Rather than fighting for incremental gains by pulling these datasets to edge devices, we need to embrace the i...
Web Real-Time Communication APIs have quickly revolutionized what browsers are capable of. In addition to video and audio streams, we can now bi-directionally send arbitrary data over WebRTC's PeerConnection Data Channels. With the advent of Progressive Web Apps and new hardware APIs such as WebBluetooh and WebUSB, we can finally enable users to stitch together the Internet of Things directly from their browsers while communicating privately and securely in a decentralized way.
IoT is at the core or many Digital Transformation initiatives with the goal of re-inventing a company's business model. We all agree that collecting relevant IoT data will result in massive amounts of data needing to be stored. However, with the rapid development of IoT devices and ongoing business model transformation, we are not able to predict the volume and growth of IoT data. And with the lack of IoT history, traditional methods of IT and infrastructure planning based on the past do not app...
Fifty billion connected devices and still no winning protocols standards. HTTP, WebSockets, MQTT, and CoAP seem to be leading in the IoT protocol race at the moment but many more protocols are getting introduced on a regular basis.

In his session at @ThingsExpo, Chris Matthieu, co-founder and CTO of Octoblu, walked through how Octob...
