Wearable technology represents a monumental shift of business practices and even new business models for device manufacturers, content and application providers, and service providers. Wearable technology today represents an array of products including watches, wristbands, and various clothing items. While there is not yet a clear winner in terms of product or even product category, what is clear is that the future of wearable technology in terms of implementation and operations will be completely different than today.
We see the future encompassing new business models and use cases that will present both huge challenges and opportunities, which will test alliances between various entities in the value chain including network operators, component suppliers, application developers, and industry intermediaries. One area of particular interest that crosses many industries is mobile commerce as we see an emerging Wearable Device Commerce (WDC) ecosystem.
This report provides a view into the future of wearable technology with an emphasis on emerging business models and use cases. All purchases of Mind Commerce reports includes time with an expert analyst who will help you link key findings in the report to the business issues you’re addressing. This needs to be used within three months of purchasing the report.

Cloud computing abstracts and virtualizes the need for as much physical computing as possible and then it dynamically provisions that computing so that it can change to meet user demands. Based on deployment models, cloud computing can be classified into three primary types: Private, Public and Hybrid. Based on service provided, cloud computing can be classified into three types: Software as a Service (SaaS), Platform as a Service (PaaS) and Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS).
Cloud is moving beyond computing and storage and into an entirely new realm of communications, applications, content and applications. Evidence of this evolution ranges from common examples, such as Google Voice for Cloud-based communications, to less common examples such as Cloud-based payments solutions within the mobile commerce arena.

The telecommunications industry is rapidly evolving to a world in which objects (devices, equipment, and other assets) are autonomously communicating, transacting, signaling, etc. Arguably this so-called Internet of Things (IoT) market will overtake human communications rapidly as there are vastly more objects in the world than humans, they can communicate much faster, much more frequently, and for many more reasons than humans.
This report provides an evaluation of leading companies and associated solutions within IoT marketplace. Companies included in this study include ARM, Broadcom, Cisco, Freescale, Google, Intel, McAfee, Oracle, PTC, Qualcomm, Samsung, SAP, TE Connectivity, and Texas Instruments.

- Companies providing the fundamental building blocks and support infrastructure for IoT are positioned to capitalize the most in the early days of IoT. This group of companies consists of component (hardware, software, and middleware) as well as support solutions (security, privacy, interoperability, and controls).
- There will be many companies/solutions that will emerge in the years 2014 – 2020, which are prior to a large inflection point for IoT, and also represent the formative years for the IoT ecosystem to develop functionality necessary to sustain itself and for sufficient market verticals to adopt automated business practices and related service offerings.
- We see consolidation occurring, both early and late, within the IoT lifecycle and ecosystem. Some of the early players fulfilling critical roles such as Identity Management, will be acquired by much bigger companies very early in the introduction stage.
- The IoT mediation capability is key to the sustainable growth of IoT services as it provides critical functions such as privacy, security, access control, preference control, and more.
- Identify leading IoT companies and their strategies
- Identify critical needs and solutions such as IoT mediation
- Learn why the companies/solutions evaluated are IoT leaders
- Understand why other companies are not included and their future
- Identify potential acquisition targets such as IoT identity management companies
