Push for indoor location technologies in 2014

Wednesday, April 16th, 2014

In the latest edition of ABI Research’s quarterly Market Data “Location Technologies”, it looks like 2014 could be a breakout year for indoor location technologies in retail environments. Early adopters are shifting from trials to full-scale deployments of the technology, as they are entering the end of the three-year adoption cycle.

Low-cost BLE/iBeacons and Wi-Fi solutions are creating a wave of second generation start-ups to fuel new growth and use cases across all major verticals. This activity is estimated to result in over 30,000 indoor location installations in 2014.

Major grocery and pharmacy chains are really moving towards this technology, and adoption and resulting revenues for all indoor location technologies are available across 11 major verticals. In fast food, for example, a small percentage of improvement in queue lengths can translate to a savings of millions of dollars. Many chain stores are doing trials of the technology just to see if indoor location is right for them. (more…)

Pitney Bowes and IBM collaborate on new “Blue Mix” hybrid cloud location services

Tuesday, April 8th, 2014

In an interview with James Fairweather, Vice President of Architecture, Technology and Experience for Pitney Bowes Inc., he answered the following questions about the new collaboration on IBM’s “BlueMix” platform-as-a-service. This collaboration is designed to develop new hybrid cloud location intelligence services that help businesses unearth deeper customer insights based on geography, enabling them to deliver more personalized services and contextually relevant experiences.

1) Can you tell me how hybrid cloud location services are different than other location based services?

“Applications that need to leverage big data-residing in both public and private clouds, especially real-time data and analytics, benefit from hybrid cloud location services. For developers, it’s a system that significantly reduces the time needed to create an application.  For businesses, it’s a system which allows line-of-business users to easily create applications without needing a high level of technical know-how.

Public beta of Geotrigger Service launched

Friday, November 22nd, 2013

Yesterday,  Esri launched the public beta version of its cloud-based Geotrigger Service for developers to  create location-aware apps for iPhone and Android without using up their battery life. The beta Geotrigger Service is free and the official release will rely on feedback from developers.

Apps built on the Esri location platform will be able to gather business intelligence of the location of people and when the app is being used, adding location awareness and alerts to other services developers can take advantage of on the Esri location development platform. Developers will be able to design apps that send messages to users to signify when they arrive or leave an area defined by a geofence. (more…)

Smartphones will have location-based sensor fusion as standard

Wednesday, November 20th, 2013

Location-based sensor fusion will become a standard feature in as smartphones embrace constant, ubiquitous location, according to ABI Research’s report, “Location-based Sensor Fusion: Companies, Technologies, and Revenue Opportunities”. The report outlines how sensor fusion will evolve to support indoor location and the companies best placed to succeed in this space. Location-based sensor fusion will pave the way for the use of the “quantified self, ambient intelligence,” as well as provide huge potential around advertising and retail.

Research and Markets “GIS Market in U.S. 2012-2016” Report reveals integration as a top topic

Thursday, November 7th, 2013

In a recent Research and Markets Report, “GIS Market in US 2012-2016” the analysts discovered that many GIS vendors in the U.S. are adding integrated GIS solutions to their portfolios to avoid interoperability problems. These solutions are often seen as fully-integrated application in enterprise applications. End-users can integrate GIS solutions with design, analysis, and simulation software. It has become customary for manufacturing companies to integrate GIS solutions into analytical and simulation applications as part of the product life cycle, thereby extending the reach of GIS. Enterprise applications provide companies with asset management, planning, analysis, remote access, distribution of information, and controlling existing IT systems. Those vendors who have a history in providing design, analysis and simulation software from other industry perspectives such as asset management, planning, etc. can take advantage of this trend by integrating GIS directly into their existing product portfolios. (I have just returned from the Bentley Year in Infrastructure Conference in London where integrated GIS solutions was demonstrated).

“The analysts forecast the GIS market in the US to grow at a CAGR of 10.96 percent over the period 2012-2016. One of the key factors contributing to this market growth is the increasing demand from the Government sector. The GIS market in the US has also been witnessing the development of integrated systems. However, the increasing government regulations and guidelines could pose a challenge to the growth of this market.
