Five Key Technology Expectations for 2014 Presentation Transcript

  • 1.       Five Key Technology Expectations for 2014 www.intersog.com 2014
  • 2. Mobility
  • 3. Mobility •  In  2014,  users  will  challenge  more  businesses  to  go  mobile  and  have  an  app   or  at  least  a  mobile  website   •  A  huge  mobile  mind  shi<  is  expected  with  more  clients  op>ng  for  service   providers  with  a  well  thought-­‐over  and  proac>ve  mobile  strategy   •  Mobile  payment  systems  and  virtual  wallets  as  well  as  mobile  3D  dressing   rooms   •  Rapid  evolu>on  of  4G  mobile  networks  across  the  Globe   •  More  geoloca>on-­‐based  check-­‐in  services  such  as  Foursquare  to  boost   mobile  shopping   •  Mobile  device  management  from  BYOD  to  cloud-­‐based  mobile  security   solu>ons  (as  a  result,  there’ll  be  an  increased  demand  for  consumer  apps   such  as  Dropbox  or  Evernote)   •  Mobile  search  adver>sing  will  see  a  52%  increase,  while  mobile  banner   adver>sing  will  see  a  54%  increase  and  mobile  click  through  is  likely  to  grow   as  high  as  18%  in  2014     •  More  mobile  video  services  like  Vine  or  Instagram  will  emerge  to  help   remove  technology  barriers  to  entry  for  startups  and  SMEs  
  • 4. Wearable Tech
  • 5. Wearable Tech •  Wearable  tech  market  is  expected  to  hit  over  $1.5B  ($800M  increase  from   2013)   •  Fitness  trackers  –  now  when  the  shape  and  design  issues  have  been   resolved,  the  next-­‐gen  fitness  and  healthcare  gadgets  will  be  all  about   features  and  capabili>es  they  offer   •  Smartwatches  –  big  companies  are  preparing  to  get  involved  in  a  smart   watch  game  where  the  winner  is  the  one  able  to  offer  a  wearable  app  that  is   simply  more  convenient  for  performing  a  task  than  pulling  out  a   smartphone  and  performing  a  task  on  it   •  Face  computers  –  2014  promises  to  put  in  place  some  clear  rules  and   purposes  for  face  mounted  computers.  Google  and  other  companies  will   finally  determine  most  common  use  cases  and  best  workflows  for  their   products  such  as  Google  Glass  and  will  focus  more  on  polishing  UI  design   and  UX  in  general.   •  NFC  and  Bluetooth  trinkets  –  while  NFC  rings  are  yet  to  make  a  long  way  to   go  mainstream,  the  technology  itself  is  expected  to  make  a  true  break-­‐ through  on  the  wearable  tech  market.  NFC  and  Bluetooth  enabled   accessories  will  become  stop-­‐gaps  for  features  that  we  want  to  be   embedded  in  our  daily  life  surrounded  by  smart  objects.  
  • 6. Internet of Things
  • 7. Internet of Things •  Evidence  shows  that  2014  won’t  be  the  >pping  point  for  consumer  adop>on   of  the  Internet  of  Things  (IoT)  –  in  2013,  only  17%  of  businesses  polled  plan   to  roll  out  an  IoT-­‐based  product   •  Data  scien>st  will  become  a  hard  sought-­‐a<er  role  in  all  digital  ecosystems   •  Vendors  selling  IoT  products  will  have  to  address  the  two  major  consumer   concerns  about  IoT:  1)  ensure  online  safety  of  personal  data  and  2)  achieve   consumer  loyalty  based  on  trust     •  Hardware  vendors  will  work  towards  a  common  communica>ons  plaform   to  enable  beger  and  faster  data  transmission  across  devices   •  Payment  systems  –  both  exis>ng  credit/debit  cards  and  new  systems  such   as  Google  Wallet,  PayPal  or  Coin  –  will  become  more  integrated  with  the  IoT   smoothing  the  fric>on  of  transac>ons  
  • 8. Big Data
  • 9. Big Data •  Loca>on  intelligence  will  play  a  pivotal  role  in  helping  companies  beger   understand  rela>onships  between  specific  loca>ons  to  be  able  to  iden>fy   growth  opportuni>es,  improve  internal  and  external  informa>on  sharing,   and  make  beger  strategic  business  decisions   •  Channel  retarge>ng  –  businesses  will  be  seeking  means  to  append  specified   data  points  to  get  the  appropriate  IDs  and  device  informa>on  to  retarget   customers  on  any  given  channel.  As  such,  the  focus  in  2014  will  be  on   automa>ng  the  way  data  is  reported,  packaged  and  sent  to  other  systems   •  Technology  advances  like  YARN  will  increase  the  use  of  new  and  more   op>mally  efficient  engines  and  expand  Hadoop  opportuni>es   •  Cloud  data  warehouses  such  as  Amazon  Redshi<  or  Google  BigQuery  will   reduce  >me  needed  to  build  out  a  data  warehousing  system  from  several   months  to  just  a  few  days  which  will  enable  rapid  prototyping  and  beger   flexibility   •  Self-­‐serving  analy>cs  will  become  a  standard  for  fast  moving  organiza>ons   and  will  break  a  monolithic  infrastructure  stack  into  numerous  innova>ve   solu>ons  to  work  effec>vely  with  new  data  sources  
  • 10. 3D Printing & Imaging
  • 11. 3D Printing & Imaging •  Laser  sintering  technology  patents  that  current  hold  3D  prin>ng  back  from   going  mainstream  due  to  a  very  high  pricing  will  expire  in  February  2014   which  will  result  in  a  significant  drop  in  the  cost  of  technology  and  beger   consumeriza>on  opportuni>es   •  Big  players  like  3D  Systems,  Au>desk,  Stratasys  and  others  will  be  working   hard  on  making  3D  prin>ng  and  imaging  more  useful  for  industry  and   manufacturing  in  par>cular   •  In  August  2014,  NASA  will  send  3D  printers  to  the  Interna>onal  Space   Sta>on  (ISS)  to  replicate  roughly  30%  of  all  parts
