Qualcomm Incorporated Research Reports
On July 30, 2014, Qualcomm Incorporated (Qualcomm) announced that its subsidiary, Qualcomm Technologies, Inc., has completed the acquisition of EmpoweredU -a pioneer developer of an intuitive, mobile-centric cloud-based learning environment that is both device and operating system agnostic. The integration of EmpoweredU with other education initiatives within the Company will help the latter to accelerate mobile innovation and 24/7 learning into education. Steve Sprigg, Senior Vice President, Qualcomm Technologies, Inc, said, "From the Company's long involvement in the education space, including nearly 40 education projects funded by the Qualcomm® Wireless Reach™ initiative since 2007, we've learned that providing students with 24/7 access to their peers, teachers and learning materials can dramatically improve learning outcomes. However, the digital divide continues to widen as there has not yet been a viable solution to address the gaps for those students without 24/7 access."

When dealing with multiple application or transport protocols, you would be...

We are given a desktop platform with Java 8 or Java 9 installed and seek to find a way to deploy high-performance Java applications that use Java 3D and/or Jogl without having to run an installer.

Further, we seek to do this in a way that does not depend on bundling a JRE with our applications, as this makes downloads and installations rat...

In this strange new world where more and more power is drawn from business technology, companies are effectively straddling two paths on the road to innovation and transformation into digital enterprises. The first path is the heritage trail – with “legacy” technology forming the background. Here, extant technologies are transformed by core IT teams to provide more API-driven approaches. Legacy systems can restrict companies that are transitioning into digital enterprises. To truly become a lead...

Forrester Research has predicted the IoT will become “the backbone” of customer value as it continues to grow. It is no surprise that retail is ...
