Intel Corporation Research Report

Intel has announced it will be buying the core service of HTML5 mobile-app development firm appMobi, but only its tools and related staff and not the entire startup itself. The move is part of the semiconductor giant's bid to enter the mobile application developer tools market. Meanwhile appMobi will become a pure play cloud services provider, offering developers backend services support for HTML5 mobile applications instead. The HTML5 tools Intel acquired include the jqMobi framework, which connects mobile app developers with a mobile-ready version of JQuery, as well as other appMobi frameworks XDK IDE, GameDev XDK, PhoneGap XDK and jqUI. Also included are the directCanvas HTML5 acceleration tool and the Mobius web browser. According to ReadWrite, developers currently using the tools will not be affected by the move to Intel save for a one-time re-registration to Intel's systems. The tools will continue to be free to use with Intel.

NVIDIA Corporation Research Report

Nvidia has found its biggest customer to date with its recently announced Tegra 4 chips, Chinese handset and equipment manufacturer ZTE, who will be making a smartphone using the new processor and another phone using the company's i500 LTE modem. The new handset is set to come out in the first half of this year. The processing power of the higher-end Tegra 4 and the lower-cost Tegra 4i both supports full HD video playback on a 5-inch screen, in a smaller 28 nanometer process node which consumes less power. Meanwhile, Nvidia met expectations on revenues and beat expectations on earnings per share in its Q4 financial report released last week, and forecast optimistic numbers in the wake of the new chips. It reported revenue of $1.11 billion while earnings per share were at 35 cents. Analysts expected revenues at $1.10 billion while earnings per share of 29 cents. The Street upgraded the stock to a "buy" from "hold," as a result.

QUALCOMM Incorporated Research Report

Qualcomm released a new range of radio phone chips for mobile cellular networks this week, increasing competition for other players in the segment. The chips, called RF360, will be addressing the headache of smartphone manufacturers that is band fragmentation, enabling smartphones to connect to all seven of the world's cellular modes: LTE-FDD, LTE-TDD, WCDMA, EV-DO, CDMA 1x, TD-SCDMA and GSM/EDGE. It also translates to improved radio performance and coverage, and possibly fewer voice dropouts and lost calls. In addition, the need for smartphone manufacturers to produce multiple versions of their smartphones to support multiple carrier frequencies will be eliminated, potentially cutting costs and logistics and increasing margins.  The Full Research Report on QUALCOMM Incorporated - including full detailed breakdown, analyst ratings and price targets - is available to download free of charge at: [http://www.investors-alliance.com/r/full_research_report/f231_QCOM]

As enterprises work to take advantage of Big Data technologies, they frequently become distracted by product-level decisions. In most new Big Data builds this approach is completely counter-productive: it presupposes tools that may not be a fit for development teams, forces IT to take on the burden of evaluating and maintaining unfamiliar technology, and represents a major up-front expense. In his session at @BigDataExpo at @ThingsExpo, Andrew Warfield, CTO and Co-Founder of Coho Data, will dis...

Most people haven’t heard the word, “gamification,” even though they probably, and perhaps unwittingly, participate in it every day. Gamification is “the process of adding games or game-like elements to something (as a task) so as to encourage participation.” Further, gamification is about bringing game mechanics – rules, constructs, processes, and methods – into the real world in an effort to engage people. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Robert Endo, owner and engagement manager of Intrepid D...
Eighty percent of a data scientist’s time is spent gathering and cleaning up data, and 80% of all data is unstructured and almost never analyzed. Cognitive computing, in combination with Big Data, is changing the equation by creating data reservoirs and using natural language processing to enable analysis of unstructured data sources. This is impacting every aspect of the analytics profession from how data is mined (and by whom) to how it is delivered. This is not some futuristic vision: it's ha...
WebRTC has had a real tough three or four years, and so have those working with it. Only a few short years ago, the development world were excited about WebRTC and proclaiming how awesome it was. You might have played with the technology a couple of years ago, only to find the extra infrastructure requirements were painful to implement and poorly documented. This probably left a bitter taste in your mouth, especially when things went wrong.

In his session at WebRTC Summit, Cary Bran, VP of Innovation and New Ventures at Plantronics and PLT Labs, provided an overview of this technological shift, including associated business and consumer communications impacts, and opportunities it may enable, complement or entirely transform.
There are so many tools and techniques for data analytics that even for a data scientist the choices, possible systems, and even the types of data can be daunting. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Chris Harrold, Global CTO for Big Data Solutions for EMC Corporation, showed how to perform a simple, but meaningful analysis of social sentiment data using freely available tools that take only minutes to download and install. Participants received the download information, scripts, and complete end-t...
For manufacturers, the Internet of Things (IoT) represents a jumping-off point for innovation, jobs, and revenue creation. But to adequately seize the opportunity, manufacturers must design devices that are interconnected, can continually sense their environment and process huge amounts of data. As a first step, manufacturers must embrace a new product development ecosystem in order to support these products.
Manufacturing connected IoT versions of traditional products requires more than multiple deep technology skills. It also requires a shift in mindset, to realize that connected, sensor-enabled “things” act more like services than what we usually think of as products. In his session at @ThingsExpo, David Friedman, CEO and co-founder of Ayla Networks, discussed how when sensors start generating detailed real-world data about products and how they’re being used, smart manufacturers can use the dat...
When it comes to IoT in the enterprise, namely the commercial building and hospitality markets, a benefit not getting the attention it deserves is energy efficiency, and IoT’s direct impact on a cleaner, greener environment when installed in smart buildings. Until now clean technology was offered piecemeal and led with point solutions that require significant systems integration to orchestrate and deploy. There didn't exist a 'top down' approach that can manage and monitor the way a Smart Buildi...
