Global Location-based Learning Market to Reach $682 million by 2016

Ambient Insight Publishes the World's First Location-based Learning Market Report

SEATTLE, Nov. 15, 2012 /PRNewswire-iReach/ -- The worldwide growth rate for Location-based Learning products and services is a robust 26.3% and revenues will more than triple to $682.13 million by 2016, up from $212.3 million in 2011, according to a new Ambient Insight report called, "The Worldwide Mobile Location-based Learning Market: 2011-2016 Forecast and Analysis."

"Ambient Insight identified Location-based Learning as a new native type of Mobile Learning in 2009," reports Ambient Insight's CEO Tyson Greer. "Mobile Location-based Learning emerged in tandem with the global proliferation of location-aware devices and has been propelled by strong demand across the planet. Learning takes place in what is called the 'proximity perimeter,' where the learner engages with content that is highly contextual and immediately relevant to the user's physical location in both space and time."

There are three sections in this report: a trends analysis, a demand-side analysis, and a supply-side analysis. Additionally, there is an index of suppliers competing in specific countries across the globe.

The free Executive Overview is available at: http://www.ambientinsight.com/Reports/MobileLearning.aspx

"Ambient Insight has identified six catalysts that are driving the expansion of the mobile Location-based Learning market across the globe," comments Chief Research Officer Sam S. Adkins. "For example, the rapid evolution of 'smart' location-aware devices that have multiple location features and rich multimedia support has created the foundation for a fundamentally new type of learning technology."

The demand-side analysis provides suppliers with insight into the catalysts driving global buying behavior. The report includes revenue forecasts for products and services for five buyer segments in North America. It also includes forecasts for Western Europe, Asia, and a combined "rest of world" category.

"As we have seen in other learning technology markets, user readiness is even more important than technical readiness and there is strong consumer demand for Location-based Learning experiences," adds Greer. "The learning experience can be breathtaking when fossils and exhibits come to life on the device in your hand via augmented reality. Looking at dinosaur bones in a glass case is one thing - watching a 'live' one run around the museum bellowing and shrieking is astonishing."

The supply-side section provides revenue forecasts for two types of Location-Based Learning products and services including packaged content and applications, and custom content development services.

"Suppliers are entering this market at a rapid rate, and partnerships between suppliers and nonprofits are common," comments Adkins. "Museums, tourist attractions, and large cultural institutions were the first to adopt Location-based Learning as a way to enhance the user experience. They continue to lead the way with a range of extraordinary innovations. For example, the ability to virtually transport a user back or forward in time at a specific location adds a completely new dimension to learning."

Over 110 suppliers in specific countries are cited in this report. This will help international suppliers identify local partners, distributors, resellers, and potential merger and acquisition (M&A) targets.

DXWorldEXPO | CloudEXPO are the world's most influential, independent events where Cloud Computing was coined and where technology buyers and vendors meet to experience and discuss the big picture of Digital Transformation and all of the strategies, tactics, and tools they need to realize their goals. Sponsors of DXWorldEXPO | CloudEXPO benefit from unmatched branding, profile building and lead generation opportunities.
Disruption, Innovation, Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning, Leadership and Management hear these words all day every day... lofty goals but how do we make it real? Add to that, that simply put, people don't like change. But what if we could implement and utilize these enterprise tools in a fast and "Non-Disruptive" way, enabling us to glean insights about our business, identify and reduce exposure, risk and liability, and secure business continuity?
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-centric compute for the most data-intensive applications. Hyperconverged systems already in place can be revitalized with vendor-agnostic, PCIe-deployed, disaggregated approach to composable, maximizing the value of previous investments.
In this Women in Technology Power Panel at 15th Cloud Expo, moderated by Anne Plese, Senior Consultant, Cloud Product Marketing at Verizon Enterprise, Esmeralda Swartz, CMO at MetraTech; Evelyn de Souza, Data Privacy and Compliance Strategy Leader at Cisco Systems; Seema Jethani, Director of Product Management at Basho Technologies; Victoria Livschitz, CEO of Qubell Inc.; Anne Hungate, Senior Director of Software Quality at DIRECTV, discussed what path they took to find their spot within the technology industry and how do they see opportunities for other women in their area of expertise.
Enterprise architects are increasingly adopting multi-cloud strategies as they seek to utilize existing data center assets, leverage the advantages of cloud computing and avoid cloud vendor lock-in. This requires a globally aware traffic management strategy that can monitor infrastructure health across data centers and end-user experience globally, while responding to control changes and system specification at the speed of today’s DevOps teams. In his session at 20th Cloud Expo, Josh Gray, Chief Architect at Cedexis, covered strategies for orchestrating global traffic achieving the highest-quality end-user experience while spanning multiple clouds and data centers and reacting at the velocity of modern development teams.
