Even if predictive maintenance were to become widespread in the manufacturing vertical, it would impact only one area of a manufacturer’s operations. BDA has the potential to leverage data collected through IoT—and almost 40 other areas—to do much more for manufacturing companies, in almost every corner of the enterprise. This report analyzes what manufacturers are doing with BDA and IoT; identifies areas where they should be doing more; and assesses the financial impacts.

This Stratecast report briefly explores why NoSQL databases came into existence in the first place; the pros and cons of these databases compared to relational DBs; how each of the two DB types is evolving to be more like the other; and how this has led to the development of SQL-based systems that can query all types of data. It then discusses two totally separate types of solutions to the privacy concerns that these new querying capabilities raise; and where SQL, and privacy, are headed.

This SPIE is somewhat unique in that, rather than focusing externally on market forces, Stratecast is taking a hard look in the mirror. Is what we offer so unique that AI technology cannot replace us? Can AI provide the same sorts of market advantages that engaging with an analyst firm can? This SPIE explores these questions.

Stratecast is currently tracking approximately 600 vendors of Big Data and analytics (BDA) solutions. Stratecast has organized vendors into 18 solution types, grouped into the five broad categories: Big Data & Analytics Core Products and Services; Business Process and Strategic Analytics; Mobile, Retail, and Location Analytics; Social and Site Analytics; and Customer Experience, Marketing, and Sales Analytics. This report focuses on the Customer Experience, Marketing, and Sales Analytics category. This category—along with Mobile, Retail, and Location Analytics; and Social and Site Analytics—is also characterized by “analyze then act” solutions: rather than simply providing analytic insights, and leaving it to enterprises to determine where best to apply them, many vendors in these three categories provide analytic insights as key components in broader customer engagement or mobile marketing solutions.

This Stratecast report discusses the major challenges that the healthcare industry faces; how fitness trackers are both adding to the challenges and pointing toward solutions; and the benefits that are already accruing to those who are taking strides toward acquiring, managing, and leveraging data. It also discusses data privacy issues that must be dealt with to ensure that a world rushing headlong toward data-driven healthcare solutions also lives up to the spirit of the physician’s Hippocratic Oath, by “doing no harm” to patient data privacy.
