Android will Transform OS Landscape for Embedded & M2M Applications

VDC is pleased to announce the publication of its most recent outlook for the adoption of Android in embedded systems and M2M deployments. This research, which is part of VDC’s extensive coverage of the embedded OS market, is an invaluable strategic and tactical planning tool for all embedded technology suppliers, system integrators, and engineering organizations.

Highlights include:

Nearly one million developers will be developing applications for embedded systems and M2M applications using Android by the end of 2015.

Customer inertia will help Microsoft defend its position in many critical embedded OS markets, but we see strong enthusiasm for Android in the highest growth markets, and increasing enthusiasm for Android in many of Microsoft’s core markets.

Engineers’ concerns about Android’s security are diminishing, and their willingness to use Android for an expanding range of applications is on the rise. Automotive and health care solutions will be particularly important growth markets for Android.

ARM stands to be a major enabler and beneficiary of Android’s rapid adoption, with its big.LITTLE and TrustZone technologies, as well as its DS-5 tool suite, paving the way.

Other vendors to watch include Electric Cloud, Imagination Technologies, Intel, Mentor Graphics, and Wind River Systems.
