Research and Markets: Global Augmented Reality Report 2014 - 9 Dimensional Assessment

Research and Markets (http://www.researchandmarkets.com/research/hsdlr2/augmented_reality) has announced the addition of the "Augmented Reality - 9 Dimensional Assessment (Technical Insights)" report to their offering.

Augmented reality (AR) refers to latest and futuristic advancements where real-world environments are augmented with virtual information.

New technologies and applications are evolving in this space to make an effective contribution to proliferating segments such as social and mobile computing. The research service offer insights upon market potential of Augmented Reality along with year of impact. The service also has covered key innovations which are likely to have a long-term impact on Augmented Reality.

The nine dimensions of the research service are listed as follows:

  • Year of Impact
  • Market Potential
  • Global Footprint
  • IP Intensity
  • Funding
  • Breadth of Industries
  • Megatrend Impact
  • Potential Points of convergence
  • Size of the Innovation Ecosystem

Summary of Key Findings

  • Augmented reality is expected to evolve from a simple branding and marketing solution into a technologically comprehensive solution catering to applications in retail (warehouse management), defense (augmented training), education (augmented books), and manufacturing (augmented assembly line).
  • Augmented reality is expected to bring out the capabilities of contemporary technologies for the user using augmented views. For example: big data (visualization), IoT (graphical view of various objects interacting), authentication (transaction based on distant facial projections), and surgery (augmented guidance).
  • The funding trends for AR in North America (NA) and Europe have shown an exponential increase in 2012 and 2013. This is mainly due to the capabilities of AR being recognized by various investors through full fledged research. Advent of wearable device-based AR has opened up new possibilities eventually resulting in investors being impressed over AR's future.
  • Augmented reality is expected to impact the majority of megatrends with high-level impact in urbanization, social trends and new business models. Innovation in Europe which allows users to build social networks using AR as a platform is expected to overtake existing social platforms due to its imaginative experience.
  • North America and Europe occupy a major part of the AR market compared to other regions of the globe. These regions not only focus on marketing and gaming applications, but also conduct extensive research in maximizing AR's presence in human lives. Research initiatives in analytics, social visualization, and haptics are expected to prolong control of the AR market by North America and Europe.

There’s Big Data, then there’s really Big Data from the Internet of Things. IoT is evolving to include many data possibilities like new types of event, log and network data. The volumes are enormous, generating tens of billions of logs per day, which raise data challenges. Early IoT deployments are relying heavily on both the cloud and managed service providers to navigate these challenges. In her session at 6th Big Data Expo®, Hannah Smalltree, Director at Treasure Data, to discuss how IoT, B...
Predicted by Gartner to add $1.9 trillion to the global economy by 2020, the Internet of Everything (IoE) is based on the idea that devices, systems and services will connect in simple, transparent ways, enabling seamless interactions among devices across brands and sectors. As this vision unfolds, it is clear that no single company can accomplish the level of interoperability required to support the horizontal aspects of the IoE. The AllSeen Alliance, announced in December 2013, was formed wi...
SYS-CON Events announced today that Connected Data, the creator of Transporter, the world’s first peer-to-peer private cloud storage device, will exhibit at SYS-CON's 15th International Cloud Expo®, which will take place on November 4–6, 2014, at the Santa Clara Convention Center in Santa Clara, CA. Connected Data is the creator of Transporter, the world’s first peer-to-peer private cloud storage device. Connected Data is focused on providing elegantly designed solutions for consumers, professi...
Goodness there is a lot of talk about cloud computing. This ‘talk and chatter’ is part of the problem, i.e., we look at it, we prod it and we might even test it out – but do we get down to practical implementation, deployment and (if you happen to be a fan of the term) actual cloud ‘rollout’ today? Cloud offers the promise of a new era they say – and a new style of IT at that. But this again is the problem and we know that cloud can only deliver on the promises it makes if it is part of a well...
Cisco on Wedesday announced its intent to acquire privately held Metacloud. Based in Pasadena, Calif., Metacloud deploys and operates private clouds for global organizations with a unique OpenStack-as-a-Service model that delivers and remotely operates production-ready private clouds in a customer's data center. Metacloud's OpenStack-based cloud platform will accelerate Cisco's strategy to build the world's largest global Intercloud, a network of clouds, together with key partners to address cu...
I write and study often on the subject of digital transformation - the digital transformation of industries, markets, products, business models, etc. In brief, digital transformation is about the impact that collected and analyzed data can have when used to enhance business processes and workflows. If Amazon knows your preferences for particular books and films based upon captured data, then they can apply analytics to predict related books and films that you may like. This improves sales. T...
Technology is enabling a new approach to collecting and using data. This approach, commonly referred to as the “Internet of Things” (IoT), enables businesses to use real-time data from all sorts of things including machines, devices and sensors to make better decisions, improve customer service, and lower the risk in the creation of new revenue opportunities. In his session at Internet of @ThingsExpo, Dave Wagstaff, Vice President and Chief Architect at BSQUARE Corporation, will discuss the real...
IoT is still a vague buzzword for many people. In his session at Internet of @ThingsExpo, Mike Kavis, Vice President & Principal Cloud Architect at Cloud Technology Partners, will discuss the business value of IoT that goes far beyond the general public's perception that IoT is all about wearables and home consumer services. The presentation will also discuss how IoT is perceived by investors and how venture capitalist access this space. Other topics to discuss are barriers to success, what is n...
