Japan Internet of Things: Infrastructure and the Intelligent Edge (Japanese Version with Key English Language Reports)

IDC's Japan Internet of Things: Infrastructure and the Intelligent Edge (Japanese Version with Key English Language Reports) service provides in-depth analysis and forecasts IT infrastructure to realize IoT. In this service, the definition of IoT infrastructure is based on the three-layer model of IoT (cloud or datacenter, edge computing, and IoT endpoint). In the cloud or datacenter layer, it is defined as "IoT core infrastructure" and in the edge computing layer, it is defined as "IoT edge infrastructure." IDC reports the new business opportunity of IoT infrastructure in terms of data and analysis by capturing the market trends in Japan. All studies are designed to provide effective guidance that is essential for strategic and tactical planning, product management and development, and formulating critical marketing strategies. This service in 2021 expands the research scope to whole edge computing including IoT edge infrastructure and will report its market analysis and forecasts.
