Here are some examples of past Market Research and Analysis Studies:
The Applications Data Routing (ADR) market has its roots in the content networking market where edge devices and smart proxy technology are evolving into ADRs. Content networking vendors will continue to advance products in response to market demands, producing products that perform application layer data routing and switching functions. The deployment of applications and growth information is staggering. Web-based applications are rapidly being deployed using standards-based technology such as XML as a means to distribute information and more effectively communicate to customers, partners, and employees. New edge devices will act as Web service gateways, becoming the interface to applications and perform application layer Network Address Translation-like functions in application layer smart proxies. The adoption of Web services and XML are key drivers for the ADR market. This study examines the opportunity for emerging products and services that utilize application layer routing and switching to direct content in proper format to and from applications and data sources.
The HTRC Group’s 2001 Streaming Media and CDNs in the Enterprise Study examines emerging products and services that utilize streaming media as well as content delivery technology. Enterprise streaming is the use of streaming media within the organization’s network, i.e., the Intranet and/or the Extranet. Enterprise content delivery network (CDN) technology is a solution that enables content to be intelligently delivered through an overlay network of CDN devices, such as caches, located strategically close to end users. Organizations can reduce bandwidth demand that streaming media can place on local area networks (LANs) and wide area networks (WANs) with the use of enterprise CDNs (eCDNs).
The growing use of multi-homed locations and increased use of VPNs are driving the need to more effectively manage and optimize upstream Internet connections. According to The 2002 Route Control Study, a significant number of enterprises are migrating away from private lines to less costly VPN solutions, in turn increasing the importance of Internet connectivity. The increased reliance on Internet connectivity is driving the need for multi-homed locations. For enterprise organizations this marks a clear shift in priority for sustained Internet connectivity. Using critical supply and demand side information, The HTRC Group’s 2002 Route Control Study examines the opportunity for emerging route control vendors.
The 2000 CDN Product Market Share and Forecast Report concentrates on supply-side and demand-side research. Supply-side research was conducted
directly with the manufacturers of content delivery network (CDN) products. Demand-side research was conducted with providers of CDN services
regarding current and future plans for CDN products. Information gathered from the 2000 Content Delivery Service Study was also used to determine
growth and product demands for CDN providers. This market share report identifies the leading product manufacturers of CDN equipment for 2000.
Included in this report are forecasts for 2000-2004 CDN product revenue resulting from shipments to service providers and enterprises.
The 1999 Content Distribution Services study examines an emerging service market focused on providing Internet content sites with new performance enhancements utilizing content delivery technology. In the study, we examine demographics, plans for content delivery service use, content site connectivity, current and future service plans, bandwidth utilization, desired service level agreements, technologies used to enhance performance, expenditures, the cost of content downtime, and challenges. Using supply and demand side information gathered in this study, we examine the opportunity for providers of content delivery services and manufacturers of content delivery products.
The use of content delivery network (CDN) services to increase Web site performance is steadily growing. Study respondents from last year and this year, indicated planned use of CDN services increases from 8% in 1999 to 31% in 2001. The results from The 2000 Content Delivery Service Study indicate a strong growth in a largely untapped market. The market for CDN services increases from $97 million in 2000 to $2.1 billion by 2003.
