Computing technologies are developing at a rapid pace across the full technology spectrum including traditional computational systems as well as cloud-based, edge computing, and emerging areas such as edge computing, and cognitive computing. Quantum computing has the potential to transform all computational capabilities with processing abilities that are orders of magnitude greater than today’s systems. This research represents the most comprehensive available covering all of these computing areas.

Cloud Computing technology and the “as a service” business model is transforming Services, Platforms, and Infrastructure (SPI) for the entire ICT ecosystem (data centers, storage providers, CDN providers, broadband service providers, etc.) as well as enterprise across virtually every industry vertical. Distributed Cloud Computing is becoming increasingly important in both fixed and wireless networks. Mobile Edge Computing (MEC) in particular is anticipated to become a critically important aspect of Communication Service Provider operations.

The Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) represents a substantial opportunity for both the centralized cloud “as a service” model for software, platforms, and infrastructure as well as distributed computing often referred to as Fog Computing wherein IIoT edge computing will avail industry of real-time processing and analytics. The combination of robotics, teleoperation, and cloud technologies is poised to transform enterprise operations, industrial processes, and consumer services across many industry verticals.

Cognitive Computing involves self-learning systems that use data mining, pattern recognition and natural language processing to mimic the way the human brain works. Quantum computing represents a theoretical computational system, based upon quantum theory, which deals with physical phenomena at the nano-scale. The implications for data processing, communications, digital commerce and security, and the Internet as whole cannot be overstated as quantum computing is poised to radically transform the Information and Communications Technology (ICT) sector.

This research evaluates the technologies, players, and solutions relied upon for Cloud Computing, Cloud supported robotics and Industrial IoT, Edge Computing, Cognitive Computing, and the emerging Quantum Computing arena. The research provides global and regional forecasts for all key product, service, and solution areas from 2017 – 2022.
