Research and Markets: Worldwide Tablet Industry Development Trends and its Clout in the Post-PC Era

Research and Markets (http://www.researchandmarkets.com/research/g2t4m2/worldwide_tablet) has announced the addition of the "Worldwide Tablet Industry Development Trends and its Clout in the Post-PC Era" report to their offering.

Being one of products with high growth momentum in recent years, tablets not only have created a unique market segment but also have further eroded the netbook PC share. The burgeoning market opportunities have induced the vast majority of companies to set foot in this segment. Three years later, the tablet industry has become highly concentrated. Following the unveiling of Windows 8/RT, tablets have been evolving from being entertainment- to business-centric.

With three operating systems competing with each other in the tablet industry, it is anticipated that the competition will become highly intense. This report profiles the development trends of global tablet industry, its subsequent effect on the PC industry, and examines different product strategies adopted by leading tablet branded vendors.

Key Topics Covered:

1. Rise of Tablet Reshuffles the PC Industry Landscape

2. Development of the Global Tablet Market

2.1 Tablet Growth Momentum Remains

2.2 Competition of iOS and Windows OS in the Enterprise Market Intensifying

2.3 Pricing Key to Determine Future of Windows 8/RT Products

2.4 Small-size Tablet Shipment Bouncing Back; Industry Concentration Intensifying

2.5 Competition among Branded Vendors Intensifying on Windows 8/RT Launch

2.6 Apple's iOS Sustains Tablet Dominance

3. Development of the Global Tablet Industry

3.1 Tablet Vendors Diversify with Different Product Strategies

3.2 Samsung's Product Strategy in Line with Industry's New Product Rollouts

3.3 Transformer Series Helping Asus Revitalize Brand Image

3.4 Apple iPad to Double Shipment Growth of MacBook Air

3.5 Amazon Focuses on Content- and Cloud-based Services through Tablets

4. The Subsequent Effect of Tablet on the PC Industry

4.1 Emergence of Tablets Stirs Branded Mobile PC Rankings

4.2 Apple and Google Aim to Secure Footholds in the Mobile PC Market

4.3 Microsoft Hinges on Windows Office Competitiveness

4.4 Microsoft Aims for Cloud-based Service Platform Creation

4.5 Apple's Converged Operating System User Experience

5. Conclusion

With more than 30 Kubernetes solutions in the marketplace, it's tempting to think Kubernetes and the vendor ecosystem has solved the problem of operationalizing containers at scale or of automatically managing the elasticity of the underlying infrastructure that these solutions need to be truly scalable. Far from it. There are at least six major pain points that companies experience when they try to deploy and run Kubernetes in their complex environments. In this presentation, the speaker will detail these pain points and explain how cloud can address them.
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.
When building large, cloud-based applications that operate at a high scale, it's important to maintain a high availability and resilience to failures. In order to do that, you must be tolerant of failures, even in light of failures in other areas of your application. "Fly two mistakes high" is an old adage in the radio control airplane hobby. It means, fly high enough so that if you make a mistake, you can continue flying with room to still make mistakes. In his session at 18th Cloud Expo, Lee Atchison, Principal Cloud Architect and Advocate at New Relic, discussed how this same philosophy can be applied to highly scaled applications, and can dramatically increase your resilience to failure.
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 sharing information within the building and with outside city infrastructure via real time shared cloud capabilities.
