This report, sponsored by Eseye, examines the new SGP.32 ("IoT") standard for Remote SIM Provisioning (RSP) and the ways in which enterprises should be considering its use. SGP.32 is not a magic wand. It does not solve all of the challenges of deploying multi-country IoT connectivity. For most enterprise deployments it is optimally done as part of a managed service which handles all aspects of managing the connectivity besides just the eSIM profile switching. Furthermore, as it is not yet available, any company considering deploying SGP.32 today will need to ensure that a connectivity provider offers a well-considered roadmap for evolving to using that particular standard. The SGP.32 ("IoT") standard for Remote SIM Provisioning was unveiled in May 2023, promising a more streamlined and user-friendly mechanism for enterprises to manage the connectivity on their cellular devices. As an evolution on the previous SGP.02 ("M2M") and SGP.22 ("Consumer") standards, it certainly represents several steps forward, resolving many of the technical limitations on supporting constrained devices and offering a simplified mechanism for handling switch-over of connections between operators. But that is just one element of the story. This report starts with a brief background on eSIM and remote SIM provisioning, with a particular focus on how SGP.32 is an improvement on previous standards. The main focus of the report is on addressing some of the myths and misunderstandings associated with the technology. It is not, on its own, a magic wand that can be used to seamlessly provide unlimited access to every network. The truth is more complicated. Commercial contracts need to be negotiated with network operators, and back-end processes and settings need to be updated to reflect a change of connectivity provider. It's not just as simple as flipping a switch and changing from operator A to operator B. And, equally importantly, SGP.32 is not actually available today and likely won't be until 2025. Therefore anyone looking to deploy IoT imminently will need to use a different option and seek support to migrate to the new standard when it's available. We expect that most SGP.32 deployments will be handled not by the enterprise itself but by a managed service provider (most obviously the existing connectivity providers) handling the orchestration of connectivity changes and providing a managed transition to SGP.32 when the time comes. In the final section we consider what the profile should be of such an SGP.32 managed service provider. There is a very significant risk with SGP.32 that the real (and perceived) benefits will blind enterprises to the realities of the intricacies of managing the overall IoT solution deployment and the requirements for a migration path to get there.

        This report provides Transforma Insights’ view on the Inventory Management & Monitoring market. This segment comprises Stock Level Monitoring, Electronic Shelf Labels and Warehouse Management Systems. As is common for many commercial IoT applications efficiency improvements are the primary driver behind the adoption of Inventory Management & Monitoring solutions. There are considerable benefits for reducing the workload on employees, freeing them up for other higher skilled tasks and reducing the errors associated with manual inventory tracking. Greater knowledge of the stored quantity of goods and their flow enables the optimisation of inventories, allowing businesses to operate with a leaner inventory reducing the space and capital dedicated to inventory, or for a greater variety of goods for a given floor space. The growth of e-commerce has also put considerable pressure on improvements in logistics and supply chain processes with customers expecting greater speed of delivery and accelerated fulfilment times compelling companies to adopt inventory management and warehouse automation solutions. One obstacle to adoption is that many of the tasks that Inventory Management & Monitoring automate can be achieved by suitably equipped employees and extensive use of barcodes. Other IoT solutions such as drones and AI-based video monitoring solutions are also being increasingly used for inventory management, which will limit the market to an extent. The report provides a detailed definition of the sector, analysis of market development and profiles of the key vendors in the space. It also provides a summary of the current status of adoption and Transforma Insights’ ten-year forecasts for the market. The forecasts include analysis of the number of IoT connections by geography, the technologies used (including splits by 2G, 3G, 4G, 5G, LPWA, short range, satellite and others), as well as the revenue split between module, value-added connectivity and services.

          This report provides Transforma Insights’ views on the In-Vehicle Infotainment market, accessed through the Vehicle Head Unit or through aftermarket devices. In-vehicle Wi-Fi and media streaming has become increasingly popular amongst consumers over the past decade. In-vehicle Wi-Fi allows passengers to stream media, download applications and internet access. It also allows for media consumption in the vehicle. Previously, media used to be owned, nowadays many consumers choose to stream this media. To make use of this media whilst in a moving vehicle users will require a reliable, high bandwidth connection, driving demand for in-vehicle infotainment. This trend is likely to continue in the future as bandwidth becomes cheaper. However, the ubiquitous smartphone is likely to limit the size of this market, particularly in vehicles with Apple CarPlay or Android Auto installed. Vehicles compatible with smartphone mirroring can take advantage of the vehicle’s controls to access their media. Some drivers will simply choose to use their smartphones to browse the internet or stream media instead. Nonetheless, drivers are increasingly being discouraged from the distractions of smartphone usage whilst driving. Those who wish to lower their risk of an accident or falling foul of local traffic laws will be keen to make use of In-Vehicle Infotainment on the Vehicle Head Unit. The report provides a detailed definition of the sector, analysis of market development and profiles of the key vendors in the space. It also provides a summary of the current status of adoption and Transforma Insights’ ten-year forecasts for the market.

              The development of quantum computers is well under way. Even though these machines are still in quite early development stages it will not be long before they become mainstream in many industries. Over the past few years, some remarkable milestones have been achieved by different tech giants in this field. For instance, Google was able to construct a quantum computer in 2019 which could do a mathematical calculation in 3 minutes 20 seconds, that would have taken a regular supercomputer 10,000 years to solve. The latest and the most advanced development has been the IBM Quantum Condor processor with a 1,000-qubit capacity. Quantum computing increasingly provides great opportunities to enterprises, especially in the field of new drug discovery, financial trading, and supply chain optimisations. In this report we analyse the contexts in which quantum computing (potentially) has advantages compared to classical computing and the leading use cases for quantum computing. The report highlights ways in which organisations can leverage the advantages of quantum computing already today and also talks about the technologies being leveraged today to apply quantum computing to practical problems and achieve enhanced results. It discusses in detail the use, advantages, and disadvantages of quantum computers in the field of financial services, the insurance industry, medical and drug discovery, climate change, automotive, energy, and telecommunications, and how governments are investing into the technology to aid these developments.

                          This report provides a guide to the various regulations that affect deployments of the Internet of Things and the associated provision of connectivity, device functionality, and management of data, as well as regulatory drivers and barriers to adoption. The report draws heavily on the Transforma Insights Regulatory Database, which details the key aspects of regulations (the ‘DNA of Regulations’) that apply in a range of new and emerging technology domains, such as the Internet of Things, Hyperconnectivity, Artificial Intelligence, Data Sharing, Distributed Ledger, Additive Manufacturing, and Autonomous Robotic Systems. A further domain relates to Privacy, which will often need to be considered alongside any technology-specific regulations. The report pulls together and summarises those areas related to the Internet of Things in seven major areas: hardware and spectrum, licensing and permanent roaming, privacy, security, data sovereignty and data access/portability, national resilience, and regulations in vertical sectors.

                                The concept of a circular economy is becoming a priority for governments and organisations as they become increasingly aware of the environmental consequences associated with traditional linear waste disposal processes. Although regulations supporting the transition towards a circular economy began to emerge in the early 1990s, it is only now that they have become more defined and have started incorporating the use of new digitally transformative technologies. Digital technologies hold tremendous potential to enable the circular economy objectives of governments and corporate and other organisations. From advanced techniques which optimise product designs (that reduce waste) to intelligent interconnected systems (that optimise resource use), the possibilities are endless. By integrating these technologies, businesses can benefit from improved resource management, extended life of products, increased degree of recycling and reuse, appropriate waste disposal practices at the end-of-life, and more. For example, by analysing datasets related to product design materials and recycling processes, AI algorithms can suggest product designs that are aligned with circular economy principles. In this report, we focus on the role of digital technologies such as IoT, AI, Distributed Ledger, Autonomous Robotic Systems, 3D Printing and Additive Manufacturing, and Data Sharing in enabling a circular economy transition. Solutions using these technologies will make business models, products, and manufacturing processes more circular by facilitating knowledge exchange and connecting different stakeholders in the value chain. By integrating these technologies, businesses can benefit from improved resource management, extended life of products, increased degree of recycling and reuse, appropriate waste disposal practices at the end-of-life, and more.
