LONDON, April 8, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Reportbuyer.com has added a new market research report:
United Kingdom Infrastructure Report Q1 2014
Includes 3 FREE quarterly updates
This quarter we have once again revised our construction industry growth forecast upwards in
light of growing activity and confidence in the residential sector and a number of mega-projects that are in
motion. The government's 'Help to Buy' scheme is pushing developers to start building, although we caution
the longevity of the boost to growth. The UK's largest planned project, the Hinkley Point C nuclear reactor,
is now set to enter construction in 2014 after EDF and the government agreed a strike price. Our view that
the railways sector will outperform in transport infrastructure gained more support after Network Rail's
CP5 investment plan was approved by regulators. In light of these factors, we now see the construction
industry value posting real growth of 1.5% year-on-year in 2013 and 2.3% in 2014.
Whilst we have revised our forecasts this quarter, we remain cautious in our optimism. Indeed, after a
prolonged contraction since 2007, the UK's construction sector will need sustained growth over the coming
years to return to its pre-crisis levels of output. Certainly, talk of a boom in the sector is misguided, with
much of the UK still struggling in comparison to London. In 2012 construction activity was 14% lower than
the pre-recession peak and deteriorated even further in the first quarter of 2013.

How do APIs and IoT relate? The answer is not as simple as merely adding an API on top of a dumb device, but rather about understanding the architectural patterns for implementing an IoT fabric. There are typically two or three trends: Exposing the device to a management framework Exposing that management framework to a business centric logic Exposing that business layer and data to end users. This last trend is the IoT stack, which involves a new shift in the separation of what stuff happe...

What do a firewall and a fortress have in common? They are no longer strong enough to protect the valuables housed inside. Like the walls of an old fortress, the cracks in the firewall are allowing the bad guys to slip in - unannounced and unnoticed. By the time these thieves get in, the damage is already done and the network is already compromised. Intellectual property is easily slipped out the back door leaving no trace of forced entry. If we want to reign in on these cybercriminals, it's hig...

The definition of IoT is not new, in fact it’s been around for over a decade. What has changed is the public's awareness that the technology we use on a daily basis has caught up on the vision of an always on, always connected world. If you look into the details of what comprises the IoT, you’ll see that it includes everything from cloud computing, Big Data analytics, “Things,” Web communication, applications, network, storage, etc. It is essentially including everything connected online from ha...

We are reaching the end of the beginning with WebRTC, and real systems using this technology have begun to appear. One challenge that faces every WebRTC deployment (in some form or another) is identity management. For example, if you have an existing service – possibly built on a variety of different PaaS/SaaS offerings – and you want to add real-time communications you are faced with a challenge relating to user management, authentication, authorization, and validation. Service providers will w...

The Internet of Things is tied together with a thin strand that is known as time. Coincidentally, at the core of nearly all data analytics is a timestamp. When working with time series data there are a few core principles that everyone should consider, especially across datasets where time is the common boundary. In his session at Internet of @ThingsExpo, Jim Scott, Director of Enterprise Strategy & Architecture at MapR Technologies, discussed single-value, geo-spatial, and log time series dat...
