AT&T Vice Chairman Ralph de la Vega references Jeff Cotrupe’s Stratecast IoT report on LinkedIn

Ralph de la Vega IotRalph de la Vega, Vice Chairman, AT&T, referenced Jeff’s Stratecast report, The Internet of Things (IoT): How Real is It Today?, on LinkedIn Pulse in a piece titled The 4th Industrial Revolution: What Businesses Need to Know. In the piece, de la Vega discussed figures from Cotrupe’s report assessing the scope and impact of IoT and Jeff’s assertion that “Every organization in every sector needs an IoT strategy.”

Fewer than 23% of the respondents to Stratecast’s 2015 Big Data & Analytics (BDA) Survey indicated they are considering, planning, implementing, or using IoT, but the market is expected to experience enormous growth: the economic impact of IoT is expected to reach up to $11 trillion by 2025. The report also analyzed how  “The Internet of Things” is today a multitude of intranets of things–but that this siloed nature of IoT could be a blessing in disguise by limiting the potential risk in the event that devices malfunction or fall under the control of those with malicious intent.

Data disconnects are blowing a $1.75 trillion hole in the global retail market–but unified order management can close the gap


Retailers are in search of answers about who their customers are; how much traffic their stores and sites are getting; what customers are doing in-store and on-site; and how stores, sites, and employees are performing. They seek answers to those questions—and a way to plug the $1.75 trillion hole that overstocks, out-of-stocks, and returns are blowing in the retail market.

Jeff Cotrupe’s Stratecast report, A $22 Trillion Economy Depends on It: How Big Data Powers the Retail Enterprise, analyzes these issues and presents a solution: unified order management that integrates omnichannel inventory and fulfillment on a single unified platform. Managing the retail enterprise with a platform that unifies data from all sources, and integrates it with systems such as mobile marketing, site and social analytics, and CRM can help retailers recapture lost revenue opportunities.

The report, designed to speak to the needs of the roles and teams across the retail enterprise, asserted that the global retail economy, including both brick-and-mortar and online revenue, now accounts for approximately $22 trillion; and that Big Data solutions for retail constitute a $7.30 billion market. Approximately 40 Big Data and analytics providers now compete in this space.

Jeff Cotrupe, Stratecast, and IBM show how combining diverse datasets can help CSPs survive in an over-the-top (OTT) era

IBM GC_CX by 2020“Broadband everywhere” could leave communications service providers (CSPs), such as mobile carriers, nowhere. Now that most users are broadband-connected, providers such as Google, Netflix, Facebook, and more can provide over-the-top (OTT) services–video, voice and video calls, and text messaging over the Internet, often for free–that consumers used to pay CSPs to provide. The good news for CSPs is that by delivering great customer experiences, they can still win. The bad news: CSPs cannot capitalize because, as a group, they are delivering poor customer experiences. Through a series of communications, Jeff Cotrupe, Stratecast, and IBM show how by combining data from customer satisfaction surveys and social media with data about subscriber experiences with specific services, CSPs can retain subscribers–and create and sell more of the services those subscribers truly want.

The theme of the campaign is How User Behavior Data Can Help CSPs Prosper in an OTT Era. Communications include a webcast; a white paper; a blog post; and an infographic, a small portion of which is shown here.

Jeff Cotrupe’s Stratecast report analyzes Big Data at the speed of business: real-time analytics

BIG DATA

Companies are starting to get a handle on Big Data, accessing all types of data from all relevant sources–but the pace of business, and of life itself, now demands they take it a step further by equipping their people with real-time insights. Jeff Cotrupe’s Stratecast report, Monetizing Core Big Data Technology: Real-time Analytics, is a 29-page analysis of arguably the hottest (and certainly the “fastest”) area of the Big Data and analytics (BDA) market.

The report asserts there is not a private or public organization on the planet that cannot benefit from real-time insights, and illustrates the point with many case study snapshots of companies, from large enterprises to SMBs, which are obtaining not just quantifiable but bankable results through the deployment of real-time analytics. The report tackles business factors shaping the need for real-time analytics; the technologies it takes to deliver it, including in-memory processing; and the need for a balanced view of real-time analytics as one of three “data speeds” companies need today (along with near-real-time and batch analytics).

The report also identifies more than 60 BDA providers, out of the nearly 400 that Stratecast tracks in the market, who deliver the most effective real-time analytics solutions. In addition, each case study snapshot identifies the vendor and specific solution(s) delivering this important capability to the client.
