ARM Holdings plc Research Report

ARM, one of the top manufacturers of mobile device processors, is making the most of the declining sales of PCs and the rapidly growing demand for tablets and smartphones. Its shares jumped more than 5 percent with better than expected Q4 numbers across the board, notably the 19 percent rise in revenues to $258.4 million. To top it all off, ARM's board proposed a 35 percent increase in dividend payouts, or roughly 4 cents per share. The company had done so by designing chipsets and providing licenses to manufacturers and buyers like Apple, one of the most popular manufacturers of smartphones and tablets.

MEMC Electronic Materials, Inc. Research Report

MEMC, a developer, manufacturer, and vendor of silicon wafers, beat expectations in its Q4 earnings report by posting narrower losses than expected with just $11.8 million for the quarter, and smaller than last year's $1.48 billion in losses. Its solar power division SunEdison will be the company's bright spot moving forward as the solar power industry is looking to bounce back this year, but its demand/pricing improvement in the semi 300mm wafer segment would be contributory for good growth in 2013. MEMC is expected to break out of the $5.77 level by mid-July with these factors. The company is expected to release its Q1 2013 outlook on March 13.

In addition to all the benefits, IoT is also bringing new kind of customer experience challenges - cars that unlock themselves, thermostats turning houses into saunas and baby video monitors broadcasting over the internet. This list can only increase because while IoT services should be intuitive and simple to use, the delivery ecosystem is a myriad of potential problems as IoT explodes complexity. So finding a performance issue is like finding the proverbial needle in the haystack.
Machine Learning helps make complex systems more efficient. By applying advanced Machine Learning techniques such as Cognitive Fingerprinting, wind project operators can utilize these tools to learn from collected data, detect regular patterns, and optimize their own operations. In his session at 18th Cloud Expo, Stuart Gillen, Director of Business Development at SparkCognition, discussed how research has demonstrated the value of Machine Learning in delivering next generation analytics to imp...
Whether your IoT service is connecting cars, homes, appliances, wearable, cameras or other devices, one question hangs in the balance – how do you actually make money from this service? The ability to turn your IoT service into profit requires the ability to create a monetization strategy that is flexible, scalable and working for you in real-time. It must be a transparent, smoothly implemented strategy that all stakeholders – from customers to the board – will be able to understand and comprehe...
Extracting business value from Internet of Things (IoT) data doesn’t happen overnight. There are several requirements that must be satisfied, including IoT device enablement, data analysis, real-time detection of complex events and automated orchestration of actions. Unfortunately, too many companies fall short in achieving their business goals by implementing incomplete solutions or not focusing on tangible use cases. In his general session at @ThingsExpo, Dave McCarthy, Director of Products...

What are the key differences between wh...
Ask someone to architect an Internet of Things (IoT) solution and you are guaranteed to see a reference to the cloud. This would lead you to believe that IoT requires the cloud to exist. However, there are many IoT use cases where the cloud is not feasible or desirable.

The idea of comparing data in motion (at the sensor level) to data at rest (in a Big Data server warehouse) with predictive analytics in the cloud is very appealing to the industrial IoT sector. The problem Big Data vendors have, however, is access to that data in motion at the sensor location. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Scott Allen, CMO of FreeWave, discussed how as IoT is increasingly adopted by industrial markets, there is going to be an increased demand for sensor data from the outermos...
