Technavio Announces the Publication of its Research Report – Global Middleware Market 2017-2021
Technavio recognizes the following companies as the key players in the global middleware market: Fujitsu, IBM, Microsoft, Oracle, and Red Hat
Other Prominent Vendors in the market are: BMC, HPE, MuleSoft, Objective Interface Systems (OIS), and SAP.
Commenting on the report, an analyst from Technavio’s team said: “The latest trend gaining momentum in the market is Evolution of cognitive computing. Cognitive computing is a technology of imitating human thoughts in a computerized model. This technology tries to mimic human brain by using self-learning techniques with the help of pattern recognition, data mining, and natural language processing. The aim of cognitive computing is to create new products and services based on its understanding of advanced text and content analytics and machine learning. For instance, healthcare cognitive computing can help doctors to make decisions based on their understanding of similar previous cases.”
According to the report, one of the major drivers for this market is Growing innovation in Internet of Things. IoT is making it possible for devices like sensors in consumer durable products and jet engines to get connected and communicate over the network. All these devices are based on different platforms. These devices should communicate with each other and turn data into valuable information. Middleware works as a bridge to enable communication between these devices by providing a connectivity layer. In the manufacturing sector, IoT will help in connecting machines and automation, which will help improve the efficiency of the manufacturing operations.
Further, the report states that one of the major factors hindering the growth of this market is Data privacy and security risk. Security is the most important aspect of middleware as it handles the data transfers and communication among client servers or distributed systems. One of the major challenges in a wide network is to implement privacy methods that are dependable. To overcome this challenge of security and privacy, middleware vendors have to define policies, encryption methods, and authentication models to ensure secure communication and safe transaction of data.
