Dublin, Oct. 30, 2020 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- The "Content Services Platforms Market - Growth, Trends, and Forecasts (2020 - 2025)" report has been added to ResearchAndMarkets.com's offering. The Content Services Platforms Market is expected to register a CAGR of 23.7% over the forecast period 2020 to 2025. The major factors driving the content services platform market include the growing adoption of social, mobile, analytics, and cloud (SMAC) technologies and the proliferation of digital content across enterprises. Key Market Trends The On-premises Deployment Mode Holds a Dominant Position The on-premises deployment type is anticipated to be a more significant contributor to the market growth during the forecast period. On-premise deployment of CSP solutions requires initial high investment by organizations, though it does not require incremental costs throughout the ownership, as in the cloud deployment type. * Nowadays, corporate data can be accessed effortlessly from mobile devices; this has raised the amount of data transfer between business parties and has increased the risks of cyber-attacks and data losses. Therefore, security concerns associated with customers' private data are an important reason for the selection of on-premises deployment over the cloud. These kinds of implementations are widespread across large-sized enterprises. * For instance, according to Cisco Systems in 2022, the data volume of worldwide consumer IP traffic is expected to reach 333 exabytes per month at a 27% compound annual growth rate. Besides, in 2019, according to Verizon Communications Inc., the global accommodation industry experienced 125 cybersecurity incidents in total, and professional services and the public were the most targeted sectors with 7,463 and 6,843 reported incidents respectively. * Deploying on-premises allows users to keep the solution in-house and grow the solution as it makes sense for the organization. With an on-premises solution, the solution lives on one's infrastructure and IT department or other resources and maintains and evolves one's solution. An on-premises deployment means one can become the in-house expert on ECM solution, and changes and enhancements to one's solution are at fingertips.North America to Have the Largest Market Size North America is estimated to account for the most significant share of the market. The region includes developed countries such as the United States and Canada and is recognized as the most advanced area embracing new and emerging technologies. Furthermore, the North American region shows an extensive presence of fundamental industry players giving content services platform software and services. Their financial position allows them to invest majorly in the leading tools and technologies for efficient business operations. * North America is expected to contribute significant growth opportunities during the forecast period. The growing availability of skilled labor and intense focus from SMEs and large companies to enter and grow in this region are several factors propelling CSP's adoption in this region. For instance, according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, the United States, in 2019, about 63.1% of the American population, skilled, participated in the job market. * Principally, public cloud services have got massive traction in North America, as businesses seek to heighten their digital initiatives. According to the survey by LogicMonitor, 66% of respondents indicated that artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning would drive public cloud engagement in 2020, compared with 50% who said it currently drives public cloud engagement in the United States. * CSP has become the core of how companies work nowadays with the pressure to gain higher business activity and satisfy their clients. Companies are working on optimizing both application performance and guaranteeing excellent customer experience. * Major vendors offering content services platforms across the globe include Microsoft, Hyland, OpenText, Box, Laserfiche, Adobe, IBM, Nuxeo, Objective, GRM Information Management, Alfresco, and Oracle.Competitive Landscape The Content Services Platforms Market is moderately competitive and consists of several major players. In terms of market share, few of these major players currently dominate the market. Some of the major companies in the Content Services Platforms Market include Hyland, OpenText, Box, Laserfiche, Adobe, IBM, Nuxeo, Objective, among others. These influential players with a noticeable share in the market are concentrating on expanding their customer base across foreign countries. These businesses are leveraging strategic collaborative actions to improve their market percentage and enhance their profitability. July 2020: EY and IBM Corporation announced an enhanced, global multi-year alliance primarily designed to help organizations accelerate their digital transformation and improve client outcomes, that includes leveraging the hybrid cloud capabilities of Red Hat OpenShift, as well as IBM Blockchain, IBM Watson, and IBM's 5G and edge technologies.

European government bond yields rose on Friday as Spain joined other countries on the continent in imposing tougher rules to curb the spread of the coronavirus. Spain will be under a state of emergency until early May, giving regions legal backing to decide curfews and restrict travel to try and contain rampant COVID-19 contagion. "Tighter covid-related restrictions across Europe, this time in Spain and the UK, remain the main theme and allowed EU and U.S. government bonds to recover their supply-related weakness from the U.S. session," ING analysts said in a note to clients.

(Bloomberg) -- Total SE continued to ride out tough times for the oil industry by posting third-quarter profit that exceeded the highest analyst estimate, paying down debt and maintaining a generous dividend.The French energy giant, which has fared better than its rivals through the severe downturn caused by the coronavirus, still offered some cause for concern. The company boasted of its resilience to oil at $40 in a week when prices slumped below that level as the second wave of the pandemic took hold.The oil market remains uncertain and dependent on the speed of the global recovery, Total said in a statement Friday. Still, the company’s results were a bright spot in a gloomy industry. Third-quarter adjusted net income was $848 million, down 72% from a year earlier but well above the average analyst estimate of $478 million.“Total is not immune to sector headwinds, and has similar exposures to peers, however the balance sheet remains stronger,” RBC analyst Biraj Borkhataria wrote in a note. “Total has managed to find the balance between growing its low-carbon business, sustaining its core business and maintaining its dividend.”So far this week, Total’s European peers Repsol SA and BP Plc eked out small profits, while Italy’s Eni SpA and Austria’s OMV AG said they lost money in the quarter. On Thursday, U.S. oil giant Exxon Mobil Corp. said it will slash its global workforce by 15% to adjust to low prices.While Royal Dutch Shell Plc also reported better-than-expected earnings, the Anglo-Dutch company is struggling to match its French rival’s appeal to investors after slashing its dividend in April. Total is the only European major to leave its payout unscathed this year.Total shares rose 2.1% to 25.65 euros at 9:43 a.m. in Paris, while the country’s benchmark index dropped slightly.Low CostsThe company is benefiting from spending cuts initiated since the previous oil-industry downturn five years ago and investments in low-cost barrels. Its upstream operating expenditure has dropped by half since 2014 to $5 a barrel, which Total says is the lowest among the five supermajors.Total’s gearing, the ratio of net debt to capital, was 22% on Sept. 30, down from 23.6% three months earlier and well below the level of many of its peers. Debt-adjusted cash flow was $4.3 billion, down 41% from a year earlier.To weather the continuing downturn, Total cut its net capital expenditure forecast for this year by $1 billion to less than $13 billion. It also said it will surpass its $1 billion savings target for operating expenses.LNG ReboundMost of the company’s profit in the third quarter came from oil and gas production and gasoline sales at service stations. Total’s liquefied natural gas business was hit by plunging prices and its refineries posted a loss because of weak demand, especially for jet fuel.“The group benefited during the third quarter from a more favorable environment, with oil prices above $40 a barrel thanks to strong OPEC+ discipline as well as the demand recovery for petroleum products for road transportation,” Total Chief Executive Officer Patrick Pouyanne said in the statement.The company expects that the increase in oil prices over the second and third quarters will have a positive impact on its average LNG selling price in the fourth quarter. Refining margins have rebounded since the start of the fourth quarter, though remain fragile given the low demand for jet fuel, Total said.(Updates with analyst comment in the fourth paragraph.)For more articles like this, please visit us at bloomberg.comSubscribe now to stay ahead with the most trusted business news source.©2020 Bloomberg L.P.

France is engaged in a war against Islamist ideology and more militant attacks on French soil are likely, the interior minister on Friday. Gerald Darmanin was speaking a day after a knife-wielding attacker shouting "Allahu Akbar" (God is Greatest) beheaded a woman and killed two other people in a church in Nice before being shot by police and taken away. "We are in a war against an enemy that is both inside and outside," Mr Darmanin told RTL radio. "We need to understand that there have been and there will be other events such as these terrible attacks." A judicial source said a 47-year-old man had been taken into custody on Thursday evening on suspicion of having been in contact with the perpetrator of the attack.
