NEW YORK, Nov. 19, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Reportlinker.com announces that a new market research report is available in its catalogue:

Cloud Telephony: Technology and Market Analysis & Forecast 2012-2017

http://www.reportlinker.com/p01042100/Cloud-Telephony-Technology-and-Mar...

When most people think of the Cloud, they think about infrastructure hosting as it is a cost effective alternative for enterprise application implementation and ongoing operations. However, few people understand the potential in Cloud Telephony, which represents a significant opportunity for replacement of traditional telecommunications systems, especially for small-to-medium businesses (SMB) communications services.

Some of the advantages of Cloud Telephony include unified communication system without maintaining hardware, software and maintenance cost reduction, single number integration, common system to support multiple locations, improved disaster recovery, and cost effective operations. The Cloud Telephony ecosystem includes cloud telephony providers, smartphone manufacturers, cloud telephony API providers, and various customers such as large corporations, SMB, and various intermediaries.

This research evaluates key growth parameters and market and technology trends for cloud telephony. The report includes market projections and comparative analysis for SMBs, large organizations, NGOs, governments, VoIP vendors, and telecom operators.

Target Audience

-VoIP service providers including MSO and OTT operators

-Non-traditional telephony service providers such as Google

-Traditional fixed/wireline and mobile/wireless network operators

The cloud promises new levels of agility and cost-savings for Big Data, data warehousing and analytics. But it’s challenging to understand all the options – from IaaS and PaaS to newer services like HaaS (Hadoop as a Service) and BDaaS (Big Data as a Service). In her session at @BigDataExpo at @ThingsExpo, Hannah Smalltree, a director at Cazena, provided an educational overview of emerging “as-a-service” options for Big Data in the cloud. This is critical background for IT and data profession...
Whether your IoT service is connecting cars, homes, appliances, wearable, cameras or other devices, one question hangs in the balance – how do you actually make money from this service? The ability to turn your IoT service into profit requires the ability to create a monetization strategy that is flexible, scalable and working for you in real-time. It must be a transparent, smoothly implemented strategy that all stakeholders – from customers to the board – will be able to understand and comprehe...
In addition to all the benefits, IoT is also bringing new kind of customer experience challenges - cars that unlock themselves, thermostats turning houses into saunas and baby video monitors broadcasting over the internet. This list can only increase because while IoT services should be intuitive and simple to use, the delivery ecosystem is a myriad of potential problems as IoT explodes complexity. So finding a performance issue is like finding the proverbial needle in the haystack.

"We work in the area of Big Data analytics and Big Data analytics is a very crowded space - you have Hadoop, ETL, warehousing, visualization and there's a lot of effort trying to get these tools to talk to each other," explained Mukund Deshpande, head of the Analytics practice at Accelerite, in this SYS-CON.tv interview at 18th Cloud Expo, held June 7-9, 2016, at the Javits Center in New York City, NY.
The idea of comparing data in motion (at the sensor level) to data at rest (in a Big Data server warehouse) with predictive analytics in the cloud is very appealing to the industrial IoT sector. The problem Big Data vendors have, however, is access to that data in motion at the sensor location. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Scott Allen, CMO of FreeWave, discussed how as IoT is increasingly adopted by industrial markets, there is going to be an increased demand for sensor data from the outermos...
