report to their offering.

The analysts forecast the IT market in the Benelux region to grow at a CAGR of 3.24 percent over the period 2012-2016. One of the key factors contributing to this market growth is the widespread adoption of mobile devices in workplaces. The IT market in the Benelux region has also been witnessing increasing demand for analytics and business intelligence solutions. However, the lack of resources to finance initial investment for IT systems could pose a challenge to the growth of this market.



The report, the IT Market in the Benelux Region Report, has been prepared based on an in-depth market analysis with inputs from industry experts. The report covers the market in three Benelux countries, namely Belgium, Netherlands, and Luxembourg; it also covers its growth prospects in the coming years. The report also includes a discussion of the key vendors operating in this market.



The huge amount of data generated by the cloud, social media, and mobiles causes problems for data management, but it also provides ample opportunities for better BI and analytics solutions. Older BI tools such as Excel spreadsheets are no longer able to tackle the huge amount of data generated each day, and hence organizations are adopting newer technologies such as BI and analytics solutions to deal with the data.


BI solutions help process the data of various departments such as finance, marketing, sales, and human resources to enable better decision making. To gain a competitive edge in the market, organizations are increasingly adopting BI and strong business analytics solutions. Though BI was earlier thought to be an enterprise tool, SMEs in Benelux are now realizing the potential of using such technologies to gain market knowledge and make smarter decisions. The increasing demand for such technologies will also increase the demand for a skilled workforce.

According to the report, there are a number of factors that act as growth drivers to the IT market in Benelux. One of the most important factors is the widespread adoption of mobile devices in workplaces. Employees working in various organizations are carrying their own mobile devices such as smartphones and tablets to their workplace and connecting them to their company's network. These devices also facilitate remote access to data and help employees remain productive at all times even when they are not at their workstations. The increasing number of devices used with company networks is increasing the need for IT systems and services, thus driving the growth of the market.

Further, the report states that despite the presence of many growth drivers, the growth of the IT market in Benelux is curtailed by some serious challenges. One such challenge is the high cost of buying and implementing IT systems. Most businesses in Benelux are presently facing resource constraints, and hence any substantial expenditure is a matter of concern for them. The economic scenario in Benelux has not yet recovered after the economic recession, and hence businesses are cautious about spending large amounts of money on building their IT infrastructure.

How do APIs and IoT relate? The answer is not as simple as merely adding an API on top of a dumb device, but rather about understanding the architectural patterns for implementing an IoT fabric. There are typically two or three trends: Exposing the device to a management framework Exposing that management framework to a business centric logic Exposing that business layer and data to end users. This last trend is the IoT stack, which involves a new shift in the separation of what stuff happens, where data lives and where the interface lies. For instance, it's a mix of architectural styles ...
