    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.

    +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.
