Instant payments are the answer to new consumer requirements for B2B, B2C and P2P payments. Having services available 24/7/365 will optimize digital payments by providing a real added value. A future global solution will create a standard format (ISO20022) for payments and an interoperable system. However, real-time payments will have to be coupled with a more secure platform and strengthened by artificial intelligence and machine learning features. In this webinar, we will share industry insights and strategies to help your organization tackle these challenges and seize the growth opportunities provided by today’s fast-moving market.

In an era of personalized medicine, the current trajectory of growth across the microbiome industry parallels the growth that took place across genomics. Some of the milestones that have occurred in the microbiome field include the application of next-generation screening toward identifying and assessing microbial levels within the human gut. Using these microbial biomarkers, scientists are pushing the boundaries by identifying novel drug targets as well as probiotic or prebiotic products that could aid in balancing the microbial ecosystem within the human body.

Online business-to-business (B2B) eCommerce is at a retraction point. The B2B market will outgrow the business-to-consumer (B2C) market by 2025, marking the beginning of an important transformation for B2B. The focus area for B2B vendors has shifted from procurement tools and electronic data interchange (EDI) to hypermarkets and an omni-channel presence, thereby creating a unique and personalized service experience. B2B growth strategies will include investing aggressively in born-in-the-cloud platforms that are increasingly selling speed, scale, and simplicity. The value proposition of B2B models (one-to-many and many-to-many) will depend on the impact of mobility and the role of digital channels. In the one-to-many model, businesses will start their own independent B2B markets, focusing on migrating specific services, such as aftermarket, and offering a wide range of services on the platform and intelligent buy-sell-order matching. Moreover, B2B will see growth opportunities through the integration with hyper markets, flexible fulfillment, and product customization as a benchmark to delivering a unique buying experience. Evolving with the market’s changing needs is important to ensure the business survives and thrives.

Today, digital transformation has become a strategic priority for healthcare industry participants as they strive to justify value in the anticipated data-driven, outcome-based reimbursement regime. Regardless of these digital initiatives, current limitations around security, integrity, and access control for transacting healthcare data and value are creating critical bottlenecks for care delivery innovations. This, in turn, creates an inefficient digital health workflow, with acute data silos impeding care coordination between different providers, hospitals and payers, and even various departments within a health system. As the healthcare industry struggles to find the trade-off between the risk and reward of going digital, the potential applications of blockchain and emerging distributed ledger technologies (DLT) provide a way to mitigate some of these pressing needs.
The Smart Water Networks (SWAN) North American Alliance and the Energy & Environment Team at Frost & Sullivan
Think “smart water” only applies to the drinking water sector? The wastewater sector of the North American water industry is experiencing unique challenges that smart-water, data-centric solutions can address. Whether dealing with combined sewer overflows (CSOs), climate change, aging infrastructure, or suboptimal customer service, smart-water solutions are poised to deliver a range of benefits. These include accurate monitoring and management, activity prioritization and preventative maintenance, and innovative solutions such as robotic cleaning tools.

Over the past 50 years there has been unparalleled economic growth among the oil-rich Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC) countries, and they now rank among the world leaders in per-capita income. However, recent price fluctuations have caused complications in these oil-dependent economies. GCC nations have recognized that oil resources alone cannot support economic prosperity over the long term, and they have shifted toward economic diversification. Almost all GCC countries will undertake social and political reform by 2020 to increase non-oil revenue and the private sector’s contribution to GDP. In the next decade, GCC will see tremendous growth in mobile connectivity; internet usage, online retailing and cities will create larger economies than countries. GCC countries will shift toward renewable resources for energy generation to preserve the oil wealth. Accelerated privatization of companies, resources, property and sectors is expected to fortify the region’s financial resources and lend greater stability to future economic prospects. These forces will strengthen the GCC economies and help eradicate oil-price complications.

Developing Asia, which has significant peak power shortages and substantial electrification gaps, offers abundant opportunities for developers or independent power plants (IPPs). Increasing energy demand due to economic growth, an increase in population, and urbanization have necessitated that governments of all countries develop policies opening up and attracting private investments in the power generation sector. Despite current economic conditions, the IPP growth outlook is still optimistic, considering that South Asia and many Southeast Asian countries are expected to have some of the highest GDP growth rates in the world. The governments are putting in place policy framework and institutional mechanisms to attract investment and facilitate development of IPPs to power their growth.

The business of selling cars, parts and services is undergoing tremendous disruption at every level. From omni-channel retailing to digital dealers to Uberization of service, the downstream automotive ecosystem is expected to be completely transformed in the next 10-15 years. Frost & Sullivan predicts that nearly $50 billion automotive parts will be sold online globally by 2020. Similarly, nearly 70% of car sales leads will be fully digital by 2020. However, these disruptive forces also present challenges. For instance, the rise of Amazon is set to completely transform car sales and aftermarket models. In this scenario, OEMs will have to recalibrate their strategies while protecting their investments in current sales footprints.
Global Digital Health Team
Digital health brings a diverse range of growth opportunities for vendors across the value chain. As the space evolves we have experienced a multitude of stepwise successes and stellar failures, yet funding continues to flood the sector. Major moves continue to come into the industry from the broader vendor environment, underlining the importance of health in everyone’s lives and progressively in strategic interests of the C-Suite across the ecosystem. Join Frost & Sullivan in this webinar update showcasing different facets of the market, and learn why there’s something for everyone in digital health.
