    Smart Home: Home is where the IoT is

    €190.00
    +vat
    The home is one of the most dynamic fields in IoT, with some of the highest market growth rates (+40% compared to 2018, now worth €520 million). But if we compare the absolute value with other countries such as Germany, the UK or France, Italy is still some way behind. Consumers are playing an increasingly important role: the level of awareness is growing, as is the number of users who install their own devices, and those who actually use the smart functions in objects they have purchased. This opens up considerable growth prospects for companies operating in this market.

    The cloud Journey towards hybrid information systems

    €110.00
    +vat
    ICT Departments are becoming more aware and are beginning to take a more mature approach to this topic and to understand the real repercussions for the corporate information system. Companies have invested 1.05 billion Euros to develop and update their existing infrastructural and application assets. In doing so, the use of Cloud services appears less improvised and more closely connected to corporate information system strategies of evolution. Investment for these enabling factors, which we know under the umbrella term “Cloud Enabling Infrastructure”, allow a hybrid information system to be created. This system combines the internal systems with the services offered by the Public Cloud and enhances the features and opportunities of both models.

    Cloud & ICT as a Service: Market Context

    €110.00
    +vat
    The shadows overhanging Cloud computing have vanished and now is a good time to act. Despite a 25% overall growth in Cloud computing with an estimated value of 1.51 billion Euros in 2015, organisations are still unable to grasp the enabling elements, reference models and main approaches linked to Cloud technology. We will begin by examining the choices that affect an organisation’s strategies in the Cloud field, what is changing in the ICT offer, how the offer is evolving to meet new company requirements, how intermediation and aggregation models for Cloud services have altered and what their level of maturity is.

    B2C E-Commerce: Comparing the International and Italian Markets

    €110.00
    +vat
    Taking as a benchmark the major European markets (UK, Germany, France and Spain), the USA, and the major Far Eastern markets (South Korea and Japan), these show markedly higher penetration rates for e-commerce than Italy, and slightly lower growth rates. Compared to the emerging markets (Brazil, India and Russia), Italy has a somewhat higher penetration rate and a generally lower growth rate. Italy occupies an anomalous position, having a growth rate in line with more mature markets, but a penetration rate only slightly above that in emerging markets. In other words, a market that is neither very dynamic nor very mature, but holding as yet untapped potential.

    Digital agenda: no more excuses

    FREE
    The last 12 months have been rather exciting and full of surprises for the Italian Digital Agenda. While there has yet to be a jump in quality, the foundations have certainly been laid to reduce, at least in part, the gap between Italy and the countries that act as a reference point in Europe. The Observatory, in this year’s research, has worked on the evidence, models, tools and proposals that enable and accompany this digital transformation.
