ABI Research identifies several security solutions available to smartwatches, but with many enterprises touting bring-your-own-device (BYOD) policies and the mix of devices entering the workplace on the rise, potential breaches are harder to avoid. Addressable solutions include Enterprise Mobility Management (EMM), Mobile App Management (MAM), and Mobile Device Management (MDM). These solutions enable enterprises to automate the connectivity and management of devices on the corporate network. "Enterprises interested in adopting smartwatches for use in the workforce must be aware of potential security issues to effectively mitigate them," continues Lawrence. "The strategic implementation of security platforms will allow employers to maximize the benefit of an enterprise smartwatch procurement without the worry of sensitive data reaching the wrong hands." Companies such as Apple, IBM, Kony, Samsung, and SAP frequently provide such solutions to interested organizations. Samsung recently worked with communications platform Total Communicator Solutions to provide an EMM solution for smartwatches in the San Diego Airport with the intent to improve employee communication. "The introduction and availability of Android Wear 2.0 activates the potential of eSIM, supports the development of hybrid watch designs, and taps into the promise of standalone, wearable devices," concludes Ryan Martin, Principal Analyst at ABI Research. "In a recent survey conducted by ABI Research, 55% of respondents stated that wearables, such as head-worn and wrist-worn devices, are part of their companies' innovation strategies." The findings are from ABI Research's Enterprise Wearable Device Market Overview: Watches (https://www.abiresearch.com/market-research/product/1027043-enterprise-wearable-device-market-overview/) report. ABI Research stands at the forefront of technology market research, providing business leaders with comprehensive research and consulting services to help them implement informed, transformative technology decisions.

LONDON, May 4, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- ABI Research forecasts enterprise smartwatch shipments will reach nearly 14 million in 2022, increasing from just more than two million in 2017.

"These pre-programmed, self-executing, autonomous contracts can be used for numerous applications, including: digital identities, governance, asset tracking, and M2M transactions, among many others," says Michela Menting, Research Director at ABI Research. "Through these evolving technologies, blockchain can affect and perhaps radically transform all kinds of interactions: from business and legal to social and political." Blockchain's potential as a market beyond cryptocurrency can be analyzed against venture capital funding, which hit half a billion USD globally in 2016. There are currently more than 1,500 startups on the blockchain scene. But not all are public. Some blockchains are permissioned and private, while others are of a hybrid nature or run by a consortium. Not all distributed ledger technologies are blockchains either, as the goals and objectives of the various participants are compelled by other imperatives. While blockchain undoubtedly holds great transformative potential, the technology itself needs to overcome numerous obstacles. As a nascent technology, it is not immune from vulnerabilities, and unknowns may bar the way to growth and maturity. Vendors, such as BitNation, Modum, MultiChain, and Riddle&Code, will need to drive interest in blockchain for technology end users and create awareness of how it can be applied in varying applications across many different sectors. But first they will need to address issues associated to immutability, scale, cost, and privacy, as well as clarify the legal uncertainties surrounding smart contracts. Above all, they will need to tackle misconceptions about what blockchain can enable and its limitations. "While the cryptocurrency market may be maturing, IoT applications are still largely untested," concludes Menting. "The excitement around Bitcoin's success is nonetheless fueling a great many endeavors beyond fintech that are likely to impact the IoT." These findings are from ABI Research's Blockchain Applications: Beyond Fintech to the IoT (https://www.abiresearch.com/market-research/product/1027514-blockchain-applications-beyond-fintech-to-/) report.

LONDON, May 8, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- The emergence of blockchain-based applications is driving substantial investment in IoT-oriented projects. ABI Research finds there to be great promise for the technology to alter and transform established industries beyond fintech. In addition to transactions, blockchain technology can also be used for communication, identification, ownership, and device management. With continued architecture improvements, blockchain technology is expanding into smart contracts that both people and machines can be leverage.

For seemingly ever the conventional wisdom has been that a wired connection would always be more reliable than a wireless one. That may just be changing. ABI Research forecasts that the global wireless connectivity market — excluding cellular connectivity — will reach more than 10 billion annual IC shipments by 2021. And the protocols are starting to sound pretty compelling. Here are the top five ways wireless might just win: 1. Bluetooth. Certainly long in the tooth, but pervasive. Bluetooth will be in 60% of total devices by 2021. And Bluetooth Smart will be in 16% of devices by that time. Bluetooth Smart emphasizes power efficiency while the recently adopted Bluetooth 5 emphasizes range and speed. 2. Wi-Fi. By 2021, Wi-Fi will be found in 47% of all devices, half of which will be smartphones. For high-speed wireless data transfer like networking, mobile devices, computing, and peripherals you've got 802.11ad, aka WiGig. For low-power Internet of Things devices and wireless sensor networks there's the sub-1GHz Wi-Fi HaLow aka 802.11ah. 3. 802.15.4-based technologies like ZigBee and Thread. These are good for growth in energy management and smart city applications, like building automation, smart metering, smart lighting, and industrial applications. This will make up almost 9% of the market by 2021. 4. NFC. Payments from smartphones and wearables will continue to take advantage of NFC and their growth may be slow but it's starting to look more sure. 5. Combined multiprotocol System on Chips. No more will you have to choose which protocol to support or how you can stuff all the chips for all the protocols you need into an ever-shrinking form factor. Multiprotocol SoC will reduce complexity and cost, while future-proofing devices and getting them to market faster. Someday plugging in a wire may feel as outdated as cranking a car to start it.

ABI Research finds that smart retail technology benefits are most often linked to "secondary" aspects like supporting collaboration, sustainability, and decision making. Main adoption barriers include integration with existing solutions and privacy concerns, next to ROI, cost, and cultural resistance. There is a clear preference to outsource cybersecurity and fulfilment, but to keep research and development in-house. Key survey findings concerning attitudes toward, and perceived benefits of, key technologies include: "Our findings provide compelling evidence that conservative and protectionist attitudes still prevail in the retail sector, especially with smaller players," concludes Bonte. "Concerns about privacy and the adoption of data sharing and public cloud technologies also illustrate this. Clearly, the retail vertical still finds itself in the 'awareness building phase,' not ready yet to fully embrace disruptive instore technologies and approaches to transform the very nature of its operations." These findings are from ABI Research's Industry Survey: Transformative Technology Adoption and Attitudes - Retail (https://www.abiresearch.com/market-research/product/1028102-industry-survey-transformative-technology-/) report.

Carlaw goes on to state that the "air gap" between technological evangelism and end user focus is something that the tech vendor community will need to address through significant education and awareness activities. "All initiatives must factor in company size and vertical market as key demographic indicators," concludes Carlaw.
