  • Membership IoT, IoE & M2M Sector

    We are in the early stages of a new world where everything that should be connected will be connected. Connected cars, homes, industrial processes, healthcare, agriculture, and other sectors comprise a few billion connections today. In the next 20 years, connections to things, sensors, computers, and people will grow nearly 10 times. Helping businesses limit the risk and maximize the opportunity is the IoT, IoE, and M2M intelligence sector. This sector provides an end-to-end view of the connected thing value chain from devices to value-added services. Critical IoT solution components of connected devices, service platforms, security, analytics, IoT applications, partner programs, and professional services are examined by supplier and technology viewpoints. The sector is grounded in the IoT Market Tracker, a highly segmented database that quantifies the entire IoT value chain by connection technology and six revenue categories. Additionally, the IoE Market Tracker provides a total market view by fixed and wireless connection technologies and by vertical market for computing devices and connected things.

    Seeing the Bigger Picture of SoftBank’s Potential Acquisition of ARM Holdings

    3Q 2016

    A number of SoftBank’s investors took umbrage with its CEO, Masayoshi Son, when SoftBank announced it would acquire ARM Holdings, the UK firm behind the ARM application processor architectures. Semiconductor vendors such as Qualcomm, Samsung, Apple, etc., then use the ARM chipset architectures and/or the processor instruction set to mass produce APUs that power more than 95% of the world’s handset and smartphones. Despite ARM’s dominance in one of the world’s most important industries (ICT), SoftBank’s shares dropped 10% in trading on Tuesday, July 19, 2016. Why the bolt for the exits by investors?
