New! Blue Hill - AOTMP Expand Research Practice Areas

Dual logo header image

Welcome to 2018, a year that will bring great transformation in the technology, IT and telecom sectors. As part of that evolution, AOTMP Research has acquired Blue Hill Research. Together our AOTMP Research and Blue Hill teams are expanding coverage far beyond traditional focal points to specialize in the following practice areas:

  1. IoT/Telematics/VR/IoT Analytics
  2. Cybersecurity
  3. BI/Data Analytics/Machine Learning/AI
  4. Mobile Application Development
  5. Enterprise Mobility Management
  6. IT Service Management
  7. Enterprise Telecom Environments
  8. Telecom Management Ecosystem
  9. Telecom Expense Management

Indeed, 2018 will see the emergence of exciting technologies that enterprises must use to bolster competitive advantage, market share, customer acquisition and retention, profits and more. This year will usher in true inflection points where technology transcends hype and becomes usable. Expect this to happen in augmented reality, wearable technology, machine learning, lightweight and rapidly developed mobile applications, and in mobility dominating as the primary tool of entire workforces.

Meanwhile, technologies that have experienced their inflection points will undergo the adoption that follows the period of hype. Look for the much-discussed Internet of Things (IoT) and certain aspects of cloud to lead. To the latter point, 2018 will be the year enterprises become mainly cloud-based entities.

The trends are not all sunshine, however – with the positive comes more challenges for enterprises. The chief example? Cybersecurity. As hacks and breach grow more sophisticated and frequent, enterprises must arm themselves against attacks. At the same time, organizations are generating more data than ever before – and letting more valuable information fall to the wayside than ever before. Shoring up a business intelligence/data analytics practice will create functional insights that lead to revenue. Finally, adding technology into an enterprise also adds expense. Managing the intricacies of licensing, user and other costs still requires budget, expertise and attention.

Each of these trends holds significant implications for enterprises. That is why AOTMP Research and Blue Hill Research have combined, and why analysts are diving into new practice areas and addressing the growth and change within existing domains. 

With that in mind, look for an expanded roster of deliverables in the first quarter of 2018 as AOTMP Research and Blue Hill Research hit the ground running. Enterprises and vendors alike can expect the following:

  • Market Alerts
  • Analyst Perspective reports
  • Analyst Insight reports
  • Anatomy of a Decision
  • Market Landscape reports
  • Special survey projects
  • Podcasts
  • Webinars
  • Interviews
  • Whitepapers

As always, AOTMP Research and Blue Hill Research will augment these deliverables as trends and markets demand. Along the way, enterprise and vendor input is critical. Share your perspective by answering short questionnaires distributed to the Enterprise Research Panel and to the Vendor Research Panel. Such feedback helps guide the AOTMP Research-Blue Hill Research agenda, and connects organizations with peers and resources to elevate the entire technology/IT/telecom industry.
