Overview of the global enterprise storage market

The global enterprise storage market is anticipated to grow rapidly and will post a CAGR of close to 16% during the forecast period. The increasing demand for the cloud-based storage will drive the growth prospects for the global enterprise storage market until the end of 2020. Cloud storage is known and considered to be an effective solution for enterprises worldwide. The size of commercial data varies between small-medium-sized enterprise (SMEs) and large enterprises and requires an efficient platform to store the huge amount of data. Also, with the growing amount of data generated through the Internet of thing (IoT), on-premise storage has become an expensive affair for enterprises. These factors compel the enterprises to move their data to the cloud storage (STaaS) by selecting service providers such as Amazon Web Service, Microsoft Azure, and Google Cloud Platform. Moreover, factors such as reduced cost, better scalability, and high availability have resulted in the increased demand for the cloud-based storage systems.

The growing demand for software-defined storage (SDS) is expected to drive the growth prospects for the global enterprise storage market in the forthcoming years. SDS is a data storage software that helps in data management, data protection, data placement, and input or output capabilities. Some of the factors responsible for its increasing demand is enhanced flexibility, scalability, and automation capabilities of an enterprise storage infrastructure. Also, it reduces the overall storage costs for enterprises by allocating storage resources efficiently.

Overview of the data center market in Europe

Market research analysts at Technavio have predicted that the data center market in Europe will grow steadily during the next four years and post a CAGR of more than 10% by 2020. This market research analysis identifies the increased use of containerized data center modules as one of the primary factors that will have a positive impact on the growth of the market. With the availability of portable data centers that are pre-installed inside a shipping container, enterprises have started building modular data centers that include several data center container modules in a single facility. These data center modules can host IT, power, and cooling equipment and are available in various sizes depending on the needs of the end-user. Moreover, since these containerized data centers can host a wide range of racks and computing equipment within a container, their deployment time and cost is much lesser than traditional data centers. This will induce enterprises in the region to prefer building modular data centers, in turn, propelling the market’s growth prospects.

One of the major trends that will gain traction in this market is the Increased implementation of software-defined data center (SDDC). SDDC is delivered as a service through virtualization of the physical infrastructure and helps in improving efficiency and reducing operational costs. It also offers higher availability and better security and facilitates the delivery of workloads through the cloud. Due to the need for better control over their operations, enterprises in Europe will start implementing SDDCs, which will in turn, help them reduce their operational

Overview of the global RTLS in sports market

Market research analysts at Technavio predict that the global RTLS in sports market will grow steadily during the next four years and post an impressive CAGR of more than 36% by 2020. This market research analysis identifies the increased use of RTLS for indoor asset tracking as one of the primary growth factors for this market. Mainly used for asset tracking by the sports industry, RTLS helps enterprises increase their efficiency and reduce costs. Though several enterprises currently depend on cellular networks and satellites asset tracking, the limited signal strength makes it difficult to track assets in the indoor environment. This will result in increasing the demand for low-cost RFID tags for asset tracking. Moreover, the RFID transponders already available in the market ensure continuous traceability. This will enhance the usage of RTLS-based devices to measure distance travelled, speed, and other fitness activities, in turn, boosting their adoption in asset tracking.

This market research and analysis estimates that in terms of geographical regions, the Americas will be the major revenue contributors to the RTLS market throughout the next four years. The US will contribute to the major revenue shares, where the increased adoption of RFID tags will aid in the growth of the market. Also, the increasing adoption of RFID tags by the sports industry in other major countries in the region such as Canada, Mexico, and Brazil will also boost the market’s growth prospects in the Americas in the next four years.

Overview of the global governance risk and compliance (GRC) platform market

Market research analysts at Technavio predict that the global governance risk and compliance platform market will grow steadily during the next four years and post a CAGR of more than 13% by 2021. This market research analysis identifies benefits such as the quick and easy deployment of GRC policies as one of the primary growth factors for this market. GRC policies include business and jurisdictional requirements that control the use of sensitive information. New business requirements, increasing costs, and regulatory demands result in constant policy changes, which demand the need to deploy policies quickly to enable organizations across the world make better business decisions. The cloud-based GRC solutions centralizes all GRC policies across various information sources including databases and data warehouses, email systems, and enterprise content management systems, which, in turn, creates a single policy engine. This will allow enterprises to update existing policies or enforce new ones without disrupting the regular business operations.

With the increased use of social media among customers, employees, and partners to communicate with organizations, enterprises will soon start incorporating social media content in their policy definition and enforcement. A number of vendors already offer automated solutions for social media data collection and help in selecting, executing, and monitoring social media tools. With organizations trying to digitize their businesses to remain competitive in the market, the emergence of social media governance will be one of the major trends that will gain traction in the


Outlook of the global computer-aided design (CAD) market in the electrical and electronics industry

According to Technavio’s market research analyst, the global computer-aided design (CAD) market for the electrical and electronics market will experience moderate growth and post a CAGR of over 8% by 2020. The growing demand for CAD from the semiconductor industry is a key factor responsible for the strong growth of this market during the forecast period. The semiconductor industry is one of the major contributors to the overall revenue of the CAD market. Factors such as the continuous decrease in the size of semiconductors and an increased scale of integration have compelled semiconductor manufacturing companies to use the available CAD technologies. Since these technologies help decrease the complexity and difficulties involved in the design of semiconductor chips, its demand among the end-users will increase substantially over the next few years.

The recent shift from the perpetual license model to the subscription model is a key trend that is also envisaged to aid in this market’s growth over the forecast period. It has been estimated that by the end of 2016, the global CAD market in the electrical and electronics industry will phase out the perpetual CAD licenses and shift toward periodic CAD subscription or licenses. The high ROI on subscription will encourage CAD vendors to reduce the sale of perpetual CAD licenses gradually. Another major reason for this shift is the benefits of the subscription model over the perpetual license model. The subscription model is simple and provides a better user experience for the customers.
