B2C E-Commerce in Western Europe shows strong regional Differences

In its latest "Western Europe B2C E-Commerce Report 2012", Hamburg-based secondary market research company yStats.com has compiled interesting facts and figures about the B2C E-Commerce market in Western Europe. Aside from trends and revenue figures, the report covers market shares and successful product categories, as well as Internet and online shopper figures and leading players in the B2C E-Commerce markets in the UK, France, Spain, Italy, the Netherlands, and Belgium. Furthermore, the report includes information about the entire Western European region as well as the countries Portugal, Ireland and Luxembourg. For Great Britain, France, Spain, and Italy, separate reports are also available.

The Western European countries UK, Ireland and France have the highest retail website penetration, clearly surpassing the European average of approximately 80%. With regard to M-Commerce compared to all B2C E-Commerce activities, the Western European countries UK and Spain are two of the top three Western European countries.

Food and Fashion Items important British E-Commerce Product Categories
While in 2010 almost two thirds of the British population ordered products and services online, 2011 saw this figure increase to more than 70%.
In the first half of 2012, online shoppers in the UK spent almost 35 billion GBP. "Fashion and sporting goods" were the most popular product categories in 2011, followed by "Travel" and "Household Items". In the UK, online food and fashion purchases are also becoming increasingly popular, along with the use of daily deal websites. Almost half of all consumers make at least one fashion purchase per month. Mobile shopping is another growing trend in the UK.
In the UK, Amazon has the highest number of unique visitors in 2012, clearly ahead of mass merchants Argos and Tesco, which have fewer unique visitors combined than Amazon has alone.

Growing B2C E-Commerce Revenue in France despite decreasing Transaction Value
Although B2C E-Commerce revenue in France increased by nearly a quarter in the first half of 2012 compared to the same period in 2011, the average value of individual online purchases decreased. In 2012, more than half of all Internet users in France intended to book "Travel Arrangements" online, followed by services and cultural products such as books and music. Approximately one eighth of all online shoppers in France have previously made purchases with their mobile devices and another two thirds intend to do so in the near future. Meanwhile, online shopping via Facebook is less successful. Less than 5% of all Facebook users intend to make purchases using this social media portal.
In the first half of 2012, almost half of all online shoppers in France made online purchases from mass merchant Amazon, followed by travel agency website Voyagessncf and consumer electronics outlet Fnac. In terms of unique visitor numbers, generalist La Redoute comes ahead of the competition.

M-Commerce and Social Networks increasingly important in Spanish B2C E-Commerce
In 2011, more than half of all Internet users made purchases online, spending more than 800 Euro on average. The most popular products in 2011 were "Holiday Accommodation" and "other Travel Services" as well as "Event Tickets". Online food shopping has yet to successfully establish itself in Spain, whereas the popularity of mobile shopping is soaring. Aside from mobile shopping, social media sites also spur B2C E-Commerce in Spain. Almost 50% of all social media users in Spain read product and service reviews on social networks prior to making a purchase.
In Spain, computer and consumer electronics retailers draw the highest numbers of visitors. Movistar, Orange, Apple, and Vodafone are four of the five most successful companies there.

Daily Deal Revenues contribute to B2C E-Commerce Growth in Italy
In Italian B2C E-Commerce, a mid-range double digit percentage growth is expected for 2012. This can be attributed to the soaring popularity of daily deal websites and private sales, as well as to the increase in mobile shopping. Despite the growing use of mobile devices, in 2011 they only accounted for 1% of all B2C E-Commerce revenue.
In Italy, Zalando is ahead of Amazon when it comes to the number of unique visitors. IBS, an Italian seller of books, music and films, is also very successful in Italy. In 2011, it increased its revenue to 70 million EUR, the majority of which was generated online.

Travel-related Online Purchases very popular in the Netherlands and Belgium
In the Netherlands, product-based E-Commerce increased by more than 10% between 2010 and 2011, even if the average online shopping basket decreased slightly. Travel-related categories accounted for the largest share of online revenue generated in 2011. The online retail websites with the highest number of unique visitors are mass merchants Bol and Wehkamp, clearly ahead of fashion retailer Zalando in third place.
The number of online shoppers in Belgium is growing proportionally to the confidence in B2C E-Commerce safety. According to forecasts, B2C E-Commerce revenue in 2012 is expected to grow by almost 10%. "Event Tickets" and "Holiday Accommodation" were the most popular online categories in 2011. Mass merchant Unigro and fashion retailer La Redoute are the leading online retailers in Belgium, measured by the number of unique visitors.

Internet Use more widespread in Luxembourg and Ireland than in Portugal
In 2011, only slightly more than half of all consumers in Portugal used the Internet every week, mainly to research product information and other topics. After completion of online research, "Consumer Electronics" and "Gardening Equipment" were mostly bought online. In Ireland, more than 40% of all people shopped online in 2011, with travel-related arrangements accounting for the majority of purchases. In Luxembourg, both the number of Internet users and that of online shoppers were clearly above the EU average. "Books, Magazines and Newspapers" and "Holiday Accommodation" ranked as the most popular product categories.

Overall, B2C E-Commerce is widespread in Western Europe, whereby the number of Internet users and online shoppers is lower in Southern countries within Western Europe.

The true value of the Internet of Things (IoT) lies not just in the data, but through the services that protect the data, perform the analysis and present findings in a usable way. With many IoT elements rooted in traditional IT components, Big Data and IoT isn’t just a play for enterprise. In fact, the IoT presents SMBs with the prospect of launching entirely new activities and exploring innovative areas. CompTIA research identifies several areas where IoT is expected to have the greatest impact.
The 4th International Internet of @ThingsExpo, co-located with the 17th International Cloud Expo - to be held November 3-5, 2015, at the Santa Clara Convention Center in Santa Clara, CA - announces that its Call for Papers is open. The Internet of Things (IoT) is the biggest idea since the creation of the Worldwide Web more than 20 years ago.
The Industrial Internet revolution is now underway, enabled by connected machines and billions of devices that communicate and collaborate. The massive amounts of Big Data requiring real-time analysis is flooding legacy IT systems and giving way to cloud environments that can handle the unpredictable workloads. Yet many barriers remain until we can fully realize the opportunities and benefits from the convergence of machines and devices with Big Data and the cloud, including interoperability, data security and privacy.
The Internet of Things is tied together with a thin strand that is known as time. Coincidentally, at the core of nearly all data analytics is a timestamp. When working with time series data there are a few core principles that everyone should consider, especially across datasets where time is the common boundary. In his session at Internet of @ThingsExpo, Jim Scott, Director of Enterprise Strategy & Architecture at MapR Technologies, discussed single-value, geo-spatial, and log time series data. By focusing on enterprise applications and the data center, he will use OpenTSDB as an example t...
The Internet of Things is not only adding billions of sensors and billions of terabytes to the Internet. It is also forcing a fundamental change in the way we envision Information Technology. For the first time, more data is being created by devices at the edge of the Internet rather than from centralized systems. What does this mean for today's IT professional? In this Power Panel at @ThingsExpo, moderated by Conference Chair Roger Strukhoff, panelists will addresses this very serious issue of profound change in the industry.
Scott Jenson leads a project called The Physical Web within the Chrome team at Google. Project members are working to take the scalability and openness of the web and use it to talk to the exponentially exploding range of smart devices. Nearly every company today working on the IoT comes up with the same basic solution: use my server and you'll be fine. But if we really believe there will be trillions of these devices, that just can't scale. We need a system that is open a scalable and by using the URL as a basic building block, we open this up and get the same resilience that the web enjoys.
We are reaching the end of the beginning with WebRTC, and real systems using this technology have begun to appear. One challenge that faces every WebRTC deployment (in some form or another) is identity management. For example, if you have an existing service – possibly built on a variety of different PaaS/SaaS offerings – and you want to add real-time communications you are faced with a challenge relating to user management, authentication, authorization, and validation. Service providers will want to use their existing identities, but these will have credentials already that are (hopefully) i...
All major researchers estimate there will be tens of billions devices - computers, smartphones, tablets, and sensors - connected to the Internet by 2020. This number will continue to grow at a rapid pace for the next several decades. With major technology companies and startups seriously embracing IoT strategies, now is the perfect time to attend @ThingsExpo, June 9-11, 2015, at the Javits Center in New York City. Learn what is going on, contribute to the discussions, and ensure that your enterprise is as "IoT-Ready" as it can be
Container frameworks, such as Docker, provide a variety of benefits, including density of deployment across infrastructure, convenience for application developers to push updates with low operational hand-holding, and a fairly well-defined deployment workflow that can be orchestrated. Container frameworks also enable a DevOps approach to application development by cleanly separating concerns between operations and development teams. But running multi-container, multi-server apps with containers is very hard. You have to learn five new and different technologies and best practices (libswarm, sy...
SYS-CON Events announced today that DragonGlass, an enterprise search platform, will exhibit at SYS-CON's 16th International Cloud Expo®, which will take place on June 9-11, 2015, at the Javits Center in New York City, NY. After eleven years of designing and building custom applications, OpenCrowd has launched DragonGlass, a cloud-based platform that enables the development of search-based applications. These are a new breed of applications that utilize a search index as their backbone for data retrieval. They can easily adapt to new data sets and provide access to both structured and unstruc...
The Internet of Things is a misnomer. That implies that everything is on the Internet, and that simply should not be - especially for things that are blurring the line between medical devices that stimulate like a pacemaker and quantified self-sensors like a pedometer or pulse tracker. The mesh of things that we manage must be segmented into zones of trust for sensing data, transmitting data, receiving command and control administrative changes, and peer-to-peer mesh messaging. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Ryan Bagnulo, Solution Architect / Software Engineer at SOA Software, focused on desi...
An entirely new security model is needed for the Internet of Things, or is it? Can we save some old and tested controls for this new and different environment? In his session at @ThingsExpo, New York's at the Javits Center, Davi Ottenheimer, EMC Senior Director of Trust, reviewed hands-on lessons with IoT devices and reveal a new risk balance you might not expect. Davi Ottenheimer, EMC Senior Director of Trust, has more than nineteen years' experience managing global security operations and assessments, including a decade of leading incident response and digital forensics. He is co-author of t...
SYS-CON Events announced today that MetraTech, now part of Ericsson, has been named “Silver Sponsor” of SYS-CON's 16th International Cloud Expo®, which will take place on June 9–11, 2015, at the Javits Center in New York, NY. Ericsson is the driving force behind the Networked Society- a world leader in communications infrastructure, software and services. Some 40% of the world’s mobile traffic runs through networks Ericsson has supplied, serving more than 2.5 billion subscribers.
While great strides have been made relative to the video aspects of remote collaboration, audio technology has basically stagnated. Typically all audio is mixed to a single monaural stream and emanates from a single point, such as a speakerphone or a speaker associated with a video monitor. This leads to confusion and lack of understanding among participants especially regarding who is actually speaking. Spatial teleconferencing introduces the concept of acoustic spatial separation between conference participants in three dimensional space. This has been shown to significantly improve comprehe...
Buzzword alert: Microservices and IoT at a DevOps conference? What could possibly go wrong? In this Power Panel at DevOps Summit, moderated by Jason Bloomberg, the leading expert on architecting agility for the enterprise and president of Intellyx, panelists will peel away the buzz and discuss the important architectural principles behind implementing IoT solutions for the enterprise. As remote IoT devices and sensors become increasingly intelligent, they become part of our distributed cloud environment, and we must architect and code accordingly. At the very least, you'll have no problem fil...
The Domain Name Service (DNS) is one of the most important components in networking infrastructure, enabling users and services to access applications by translating URLs (names) into IP addresses (numbers). Because every icon and URL and all embedded content on a website requires a DNS lookup loading complex sites necessitates hundreds of DNS queries. In addition, as more internet-enabled ‘Things' get connected, people will rely on DNS to name and find their fridges, toasters and toilets. According to a recent IDG Research Services Survey this rate of traffic will only grow. What's driving t...
Today’s enterprise is being driven by disruptive competitive and human capital requirements to provide enterprise application access through not only desktops, but also mobile devices. To retrofit existing programs across all these devices using traditional programming methods is very costly and time consuming – often prohibitively so. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Jesse Shiah, CEO, President, and Co-Founder of AgilePoint Inc., discussed how you can create applications that run on all mobile devices as well as laptops and desktops using a visual drag-and-drop application – and eForms-buildi...
The Internet of Things promises to transform businesses (and lives), but navigating the business and technical path to success can be difficult to understand. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Sean Lorenz, Technical Product Manager for Xively at LogMeIn, demonstrated how to approach creating broadly successful connected customer solutions using real world business transformation studies including New England BioLabs and more.
The recent trends like cloud computing, social, mobile and Internet of Things are forcing enterprises to modernize in order to compete in the competitive globalized markets. However, enterprises are approaching newer technologies with a more silo-ed way, gaining only sub optimal benefits. The Modern Enterprise model is presented as a newer way to think of enterprise IT, which takes a more holistic approach to embracing modern technologies.
Every day we read jaw-dropping stats on the explosion of data. We allocate significant resources to harness and better understand it. We build businesses around it. But we’ve only just begun. For big payoffs in Big Data, CIOs are turning to cognitive computing. Cognitive computing’s ability to securely extract insights, understand natural language, and get smarter each time it’s used is the next, logical step for Big Data.
