The present document (D1.1) is the first report of WP1 of UNLOCK-CEI project covering the demand landscape analysis. UNLOCK-CEI’s ambition is to UNLOCK the potential for accelerating the deployment of the Cloud-to-Edge-IoT (CEI) computing continuum in Europe. The focus is on demand-side drivers and challenges that can help identify technology-driven innovation and business opportunities that will stimulate demand value chains. To this end, UNLOCK-CEI deals with several technological concepts surrounding cloud, edge and IoT. This report provides a comprehensive overview of the main technologies that are the core of UNLOCK-CEI, analysing these from a demand market perspective and providing insights on their evolution and maturity, their current and future uptake, the key use-cases, and the main drivers and barriers for the adoption. This report is generated leveraging IDC research on the CEI market and other major public sources.
