Research and Markets: Global Big Data Market in the Healthcare Sector 2011-2015: DataStax Inc., EMC Corp., Hewlett-Packard Co. and IBM Corp. Dominate

Research and Markets (http://www.researchandmarkets.com/research/d3t2g4/global_big_data) has announced the addition of the "Global Big Data Market in the Healthcare Sector 2011-2015" report to their offering.

TechNavio's analysts forecast the Global Big Data market in the Healthcare sector to grow at a CAGR of 32.96 percent over the period 2011-2015. One of the key factors contributing to this market growth is the growing data explosion. The Global Big Data market in the Healthcare sector has also been witnessing the emergence of epidemiology. However, the issues with data quality could pose a challenge to the growth of this market.

The other vendors mentioned in the report are: Cloudera Inc., MapR Technologies Inc., DNAnexus Inc., GNS Healthcare Inc., NextBio Inc., Appistry Inc., Health Fidelity Inc., Predixion Software Inc. 100plus, Welldoc Inc., Humedica Inc., Watson Pharmaceuticals Inc., Explorys Inc., and Sproxil Inc.

Commenting on the report, an analyst from TechNavio's Enterprise Computing team said: ''Usage of big data for epidemiology, which is study of health-related issues across a wide network of geography, is one of the major trends of the Global Big Data market in the Healthcare sector. Big data solutions help in the assessment, monitoring, and analysis of the spread of a disease among the inhabitants. This technology also helps in determining the reason behind global or local disease outbreaks. The increasing number of epidemics, significantly in the developing countries, and technological advancements of healthcare organizations to control such epidemics has increased the popularity of epidemiology. Therefore, the emergence of epidemiology is a major trend in the Healthcare sector which might drive the Big Data market in future years.''

According to the report, one of the major drivers for big data solutions in the Healthcare sector is the need to improve the availability and transparency of vast amounts of data stored across enterprises. Mostly, the healthcare enterprises are not aware of the potential benefits of data stored in their databases. Big data solutions help such enterprises in leveraging this vast pool of data for better and improved patient care. The big data technology provides actionable insights to healthcare providers based on the understanding of the entire population. Patients can also have a better view of their health. Therefore, efficiency in data analysis can result in better decision-making both by decision-makers as well as by patients.

IoT & Smart Cities Stories
The deluge of IoT sensor data collected from connected devices and the powerful AI required to make that data actionable are giving rise to a hybrid ecosystem in which cloud, on-prem and edge processes become interweaved. Attendees will learn how emerging composable infrastructure solutions deliver the adaptive architecture needed to manage this new data reality. Machine learning algorithms can better anticipate data storms and automate resources to support surges, including fully scalable GPU-c...
Machine learning has taken residence at our cities' cores and now we can finally have "smart cities." Cities are a collection of buildings made to provide the structure and safety necessary for people to function, create and survive. Buildings are a pool of ever-changing performance data from large automated systems such as heating and cooling to the people that live and work within them. Through machine learning, buildings can optimize performance, reduce costs, and improve occupant comfort by ...
The explosion of new web/cloud/IoT-based applications and the data they generate are transforming our world right before our eyes. In this rush to adopt these new technologies, organizations are often ignoring fundamental questions concerning who owns the data and failing to ask for permission to conduct invasive surveillance of their customers. Organizations that are not transparent about how their systems gather data telemetry without offering shared data ownership risk product rejection, regu...

Enterprises have taken advantage of IoT to achieve important revenue and cost advantages. What is less apparent is how incumbent enterprises operating at scale have, following success with IoT, built analytic, operations management and software development capabilities - ranging from autonomous vehicles to manageable robotics installations. They have embraced these capabilities as if they were Silicon Valley startups.
As IoT continues to increase momentum, so does the associated risk. Secure Device Lifecycle Management (DLM) is ranked as one of the most important technology areas of IoT. Driving this trend is the realization that secure support for IoT devices provides companies the ability to deliver high-quality, reliable, secure offerings faster, create new revenue streams, and reduce support costs, all while building a competitive advantage in their markets. In this session, we will use customer use cases...
