Health care IT
Over the last decade, interesting trends have begun to emerge. Rapidly ageing population in developed countries and the need for basic healthcare in developing countries is quickly becoming a challenge for the healthcare industry. Providing access to high quality, affordable, and accessible health care, anywhere and anytime without increasing costs is now a bigger challenge than ever. Different systems need to be interoperable ensuring the highest efficiency without compromising on accuracy.
Medical electronics companies are developing innovative new products that allow this industry to offer better quality care at reduced costs. Solutions like telemedicine helps reduce the length of hospital stays and eliminates the need for frequent visits to a hospital. Early disease detection through modalities like ultrasound can significantly improve diagnosis. However, such innovation requires faster time to market for the medical electronics companies. The present technology savvy generation believes prevention is better than cure. Hence solutions need to be tailor made, yet be cost effective to be productized.

The semi-conductor industry is increasingly becoming solution-centric as semiconductors and embedded systems are playing a critical role in industries from consumer electronics, automotive, communication infrastructure to retail and industrial.
The solution centric approach is to an extent driven by the social, mobile, analytics and cloud technologies that have converged to create countless new business opportunities for the semiconductor industry. When you combine the reach of social sharing, the immediacy of mobile, the insights from analytics and the agility of the cloud, you get untapped potential for growth and efficiency for the semiconductor industry in these different industry segments.
International Data Corporation (IDC) 2014 predictions were that mobile computing, cloud services, big data analytics, and social networking will continue to expand beyond smartphones, tablets, and PCs in 2014 to the Internet of Things (IoT). With IoT momentum building in 2014, IDC expects to see new industry partnerships to emerge as traditional IT vendors will accelerate their partnerships with semiconductor vendors to create integrated offerings in the consumer electronics and connected device spaces. This kind of collaboration and coordination will be necessary to reach the 30 billion autonomously connected end points and $8.9 trillion in revenues that IDC believes, the IoT will generate by 2020.
