Amazon’s launch of the Sidewalk network in late 2020 represents a huge opportunity for the company. The mesh network relies on the presence of Amazon’s range of smart home products to propagate its coverage. Initially the focus has been on developing consumer IoT use cases, but this report also explores potential commercial use cases for the new network, as well as potential benefits for Amazon’s own operations.

                            The walls are closing in on traditional system integrator (SI) opportunities. Hyperscalers and similar products-based providers are developing richer, more vertically tailored, and more flexible product sets that eat into SI revenue opportunities for solution development and deployment. These same trends also enable less technically sophisticated consultancies to develop and deploy solutions that would traditionally have needed SI capabilities. Meanwhile, the increasing sophistication of software and cloud computing better enables direct competition to SIs from providers based in lower-cost markets. Lastly, sophisticated but niche solution providers are better able to offer end-user solutions underpinned by public cloud resources. What’s a systems integrator to do? This report explores how SIs can respond to the emerging competitive landscape.

                                  The Internet of Things (IoT) is one of the more developed of the digital transformation technologies that we track at Transforma Insights. However, it is clear that the IoT market overall is constituted of a wide variety of different projects with varying impacts to potential industry transformation, value propositions, and process efficiency. Some projects are mission critical for a business while others are less critical. In this Key Topic Insight report we analyse the relationship between these factors.

                                      The last six months have seen a flurry of announcements about Microsoft’s ‘industry clouds’ offerings. Cloud for Healthcare was introduced in October 2020, with early 2021 seeing a more expanded offering covering Financial Services, Manufacturing, Nonprofit and Retail. These new product suites represent a significant switch towards more verticalised offerings, tailored to particular vertical sectors. Earlier in 2020 we also saw another significant switch aimed at better addressing the enterprise market. In July, Microsoft launched its Consulting Services business unit as part of its Cross-Industry Solutions group. The new unit is focused on strategic advisory, project guidance and implementation of Microsoft technologies. These two moves mark a shift away from being a horizontally oriented products-only company towards providing a much more holistic set of vertical-specific services supported by consulting services for customization and implementation. This report examines the capabilities and remit of the industry clouds and Microsoft Consulting Services and offers our perspectives on how valuable its offering will be to enterprise adopters.

                                              Companies looking to procure connectivity for IoT devices could save on average 28 percent by using a ‘Hyperscale IoT Connectivity’ solution where compliance, security and cloud optimization are standard features. In total, these savings equate to USD117 billion for enterprises around the world over the next decade. This is the key finding of an extensive new set of research undertaken by Transforma Insights.

                                                    Transforma Insights’ series of Digital Transformation research covers all aspects of the Digital Transformation technologies, markets and vendors that we cover, including Internet of Things (IoT) and Artificial Intelligence (AI). Technology Insight Reports provide a qualitative guide to the impact of the twelve technology families upon which we focus, Case Study Insight Reports analyse the information in the Best Practice & Vendor Selection Database, Forecast Insight Reports expand upon the data in the TAM Forecasts, Key Topic Insight Reports cover other interesting and noteworthy topics, and Vendor Insight Reports identify the relative strengths and weaknesses of vendors and show which should be top of any buyer's list when implementing Digital Transformation. A more detailed version of the Vendor Insight Reports is available for our ‘Corporate’ subscribers in the form of our Peer Benchmarking reports detailing the capabilities of vendors within the market being examined.

                                                    Digital Transformation Reports are far from the only way that we help our clients. We offer comprehensive support, strategic insight and market intelligence for any organisation interested in Artificial Intelligence (AI), Internet of Things (IoT) and Digital Transformation (DX).
