Englewood, Colorado, USA. September 6, 2012 — Sam Lucero has been appointed senior principal analyst, M2M & Connected Devices at IHS. IHS recently acquired IMS Research.

In his previous role at ABI Research, Lucero launched the company’s M2M Research Service in 2006, building off a standalone annual report that ABI had published the year before. ABI had been collecting cellular M2M embedded module shipment data from 2003. In 2009 he launched a full research practice area around M2M, with multiple service offerings, including the core cellular M2M service as well as services covering telehealth, home automation, smart cities, wireless sensor networking, and smart buildings. With a team of analysts based in Singapore and the UK, ABI Research clients ranged from chipset providers and module makers, to operators and software platform providers, making the M2M research practice was one of ABI’s most successful research programmes.

In his new role at IHS, Lucero has joined a team of analysts that is focused on the cellular M2M opportunity. Says Lucero, we are “pulling together the existing deep and long-standing M2M research efforts of IMS and iSuppli (both now IHS companies), and leveraging the vast scale of research content and resources across the IHS organisation.

There are over 100 analysts in the IHS Automotive group, and the entire InMedica division researching telehealth issues, and there are IHS analysts focused on researching smart gas meters. There is a also group focused on mobile technology and operator research. The team can draw on this vertical market research in conjunction with original research that IHS conducts, to address the needs of the cellular M2M ecosystem.

IHS’s cellular M2M team consists of Bill Morelli (Manager), Josh Builta (Senior Analyst), and Abel Nevarez (Research Associate). IHS is in the process of developing and launching a cellular M2M database product that will be updated on a quarterly basis and will consist of:

– Cellular M2M module vendor market shares

– Cellular M2M module market sizing and forecasts, by region, air standard, and application/vertical

– Cellular M2M connection service market shares, by operator

– Cellular M2M connectivity services market sizing and forecasts, by region, select country, air standard, and application/vertical

– Market Brief updates on each application/vertical market area
