Research and Markets: Global E-learning Market 2014-2018: HTML5 Now Increasingly being Used to Deliver Interactive Content and Videos through Mobile Phones

Research and Markets (http://www.researchandmarkets.com/research/mwjdxm/global_elearning) has announced the addition of the "Global E-learning Market 2014-2018" report to their offering.

The analysts forecast the Global E-learning market to grow at a CAGR of 25.81 percent over the period 2013-2018. One of the key factors contributing to this market growth is the increasing acceptance of E-learning among corporates. The Global E-learning market has also been witnessing the emergence of a new standard of HTML i.e., HTML5. However, the reluctance in accepting E-learning as an alternative to traditional learning could pose a challenge to the growth of this market.

Key vendors dominating this space are Adobe Systems Inc., Blackboard Inc., Oracle Corp., and SAP AG.

Other vendors mentioned in the report are Aptara, Inc., Cornerstone On Demand Inc., Desire2Learn Inc., Edmodo, Inc., NetDimensions Ltd., Schoology, Inc., Saba Software Inc., Skillsoft Corp., and SumTotal Systems Inc.

Commenting on the report, an analyst from the team said: The introduction of HTML5 has boosted the growth of the Global E-learning market. For instance, HTML5 has reduced the need for creating apps used for E-learning. In addition, HTML5 is compatible with many web browsers and mobile OS, and is capable of providing better performance, and enriched multimedia and connectivity. Flash was the major platform used by content developers before the advent of HTML5. However, as many mobile devices do not support flash content, HTML5 is now increasingly being used to deliver interactive content and videos through mobile phones. Despite the many benefits associated with HTML5, it is still considered a new technology, and content developers are not experienced enough to develop content through it. However, this trend is catching up fast and is likely to contribute to the growth of the Global E-learning market in the near future.

According to the report, the growth of the Global E-learning market is driven by several factors, of which the increasing acceptance of E-learning in the Corporate sector is a major driver. In order to reduce training costs and increase employee productivity, companies are increasingly adopting E-learning solutions.

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.
