Research and Markets: Reform within austerity: UK public sector ICT overview and forecast to 2016-17

Research and Markets (http://www.researchandmarkets.com/research/ccr22m/reform_within) has announced the addition of the "Reform within austerity: UK public sector ICT overview and forecast to 2016-17" report to their offering.

Two years into its programme of government the coalition continues to wrestle with economic challenges and is already experiencing its fair share of events. Recovery of the economy has not been as sustained or as marked as the government hoped. Government forecasts for growth did not materialize as planned, and instead the economy hit a double-dip recession, which resulted in the chancellor of the exchequer announcing an extension of austerity measures.

The intended reforms of the NHS within n the Health and Social Care Bill continue to be opposed by a majority of clinicians and their professional bodies, which has kept the government in an energy-sapping battle of wills with the very doctors they seek to support. The events that triggered the Leveson enquiry into phone hacking and into relations between the press, politicians and civil servants, together with the proceedings of the enquiry itself, have exposed the actions of individual ministers and the prime minister himself to forensic scrutiny. While the coalition remains stable, it is under pressure and the strains between the coalition partners are beginning to tell. In the circumstances, the coalition's appetite for headline-grabbing far-reaching reforms is diminished, and for large-scale ICT programmes it is virtually non-existent.

For many that’s a good sign, as data has been proven to equal money – IF it’s ingested, integrated, and analyzed fast enough. Without real-ti...
I wanted to gather all of my Internet of Things (IOT) blogs into a single blog (that I could later use with my University of San Francisco (USF) Big Data “MBA” course). However as I started to pull these blogs together, I realized that my IOT discussion lacked a vision; it lacked an end point towards which an organization could drive their IOT envisioning, proof of value, app dev, data engineering and data science efforts. And I think that the IOT end point is really quite simple…
A critical component of any IoT project is what to do with all the data being generated. This data needs to be captured, processed, structured, and stored in a way to facilitate different kinds of queries. Traditional data warehouse and analytical systems are mature technologies that can be used to handle certain kinds of queries, but they are not always well suited to many problems, particularly when there is a need for real-time insights.
