The Satellite Big Data market is still in its infancy, with the landscape of players ever evolving. The COVID-19 pandemic threw geospatial applications into the spotlight this past year, when most of the world’s workforce went remote, and multiple industries looked towards digitizing their operations.
Satellite data applications have grown recently due to a variety of factors: the rise of small satellite platforms, the increased adoption of cloud computing, IoT, and machine learning, amongst others.
The satellite industry poses interesting use cases and opportunity for cloud adoption, and mainstream Cloud Service Providers (CSPs) are beginning to take note.
Leveraging the power of cloud computing and Big Data, data analytics is expected to add value across a range of applications. Will the drive for digitization spanning these market verticals suffice to meet industry expectations of customer demand?
The adoption of Industrial IoT (IIoT) continues to drive the digitization and automation of the commercial transportation sector, whether it is land, maritime or air transport.
