Complete Guide to the Consulting Industry From Plunkett Research 2018

HOUSTON, Texas – Plunkett Research, Ltd. recently announced an important market research and competitive analysis report, Plunkett’s Consulting Industry Almanac, 2018 edition. A complete market research report, including forecasts and market estimates, technologies analysis and developments at innovative firms.

Global consulting industry revenues (including HR, IT, strategy, operations, management and business advisory services) will reach approximately $491 billion in 2018, according to Plunkett Research estimates. As corporate profits in general have grown dramatically in recent years, executives are reasonably willing to authorize new consulting projects as long as they see the potential for a good return on the cost. Over the same period, growth in government budgets in the U.S. and much of Europe have been under tremendous pressure at the national, state and local levels. Even with a rebound on most state and local levels, efforts are still underway to lower or outright curtail spending and debt. This has been particularly hard on some consulting firms, since governmental agencies are prime clients for consultancies.

Key Findings:

  • Plunkett Research lists 250 companies in Consulting and names top trends changing the industry for the mid term.

Smaller Satellites (SmallSats and CubeSats) Revolutionize Telecommunications

    Until recently, satellites orbiting the Earth were large, heavy craft. In recent years, however, a growing fleet of smaller satellites has been launched, ranging from the size of kitchen refrigerators down to golf balls. These relatively tiny SmallSats have an exponentially growing number of uses and, thanks to their miniaturization coupled with rocket technology innovation, are far cheaper to launch and maintain than ever before. A class of the smallest SmallSats are called CubeSats, which refers to a class of nanosatellites that use a standard size and form factor. The standard CubeSat size uses one standard module or unit (“1U”) measuring 10x10x10 centimeters.

    Satellites of all sizes are being streamlined to rely more on 3-D printing which saves manufacturing costs and increases orbit efficiency. For example, Boeing Co. is incorporating 3-D printing in the development of its 502 Phoenix satellites.

    Some of the uses for these new baby satellites include gathering weather data to aid farmers, transportation and logistics firms. Environmental impact data can be used by government agencies to monitor deforestation, polar icecap and ocean changes over time. Satellites are also bringing internet service to all parts of the globe, including rural areas that other providers cannot reach.

    SmallSats promise vast increases in cost-efficiency, utility and flexibility. Today’s state-of-the-art satellites feature computer circuitry that can be reprogrammed from the ground, on an as-needed basis. SmallSats are easier and faster to manufacture as well.

    Thanks to advanced technologies and miniaturization, today’s tiny satellites are much lighter in weight than former generations. This means that a launch rocket can carry a much higher number of satellites in one payload. This is important, because launch costs are one of the major investments required in completing the tasks required to get satellites into service. Entrepreneur Elon Musk, founder of electric car company Tesla, is revolutionizing satellite launches. His SpaceX firm has shown that rocket bodies can be recovered and reused in a highly efficient manner. His methods are slashing the cost of putting satellites into orbit.

    Entrepreneurs and investors at OneWeb are launching a revolutionary “constellation” of 882 low-orbit satellites that will drive down costs and improve performance in telecommunications and internet applications. They have created the world’s fastest, most cost-efficient satellite factory. Major investors in OneWeb include such non-military, non-aerospace firms as Coca-Cola.

    Low Earth Orbit (LEO) satellites are typically in orbit at altitudes of 400 to 1,000 miles, and are used for telecommunications and internet access. Because of their low altitude, the time required to send and receive Earth signals is shorter. This can be extremely advantageous in many circumstances. For example, passengers on cruise ships are dependent upon satellite systems for internet access, which traditionally has been very slow. LEO satellites are speeding up ship-board internet to the extent that movies, gaming and intense business applications are much more practical.

    Cruise ships are perfect customers for fast internet access via low-orbit satellites. RCL (Royal Caribbean Lines), one of the world’s largest cruise lines, is working with O3b to offer its passengers the ultimate in floating connectivity. (Users report that speed is definitely higher than on other cruise ships, but still subject to the fluctuations that satellite services is known for.) RCL claims that it offers more bandwidth than every other cruise ship in the world combined. Guests are encouraged to Tweet, Skype, Stream movies (using accounts with DIRECTV, Netflix or Hulu), connect with friends or play Xbox Live with gamers worldwide. Its newest ships even offer live, global gaming rooms.

This new data is now available at Plunkett Research Online, and in a brand-new book: Aerospace, Aircraft, Satellites & Drones (UAV) Almanac 2018 Edition.

Netflix Out-Invests Competition on Film Productions

Netflix was founded in a relatively modest way in 1997. The strategy was to solve the vast inconvenience that consumers suffered when they wanted to rent a movie. At the time, if you wanted to watch a movie at home, it required traveling to one of Blockbuster’s 4,000 locations or some other rental store, picking from a very limited selection and then being forced to make a return trip on a timely basis. The solution: for a small monthly subscription fee, Netflix enabled consumers to select online from a massive inventory of movies on DVD, receive the DVDs by mail and return them any time they wanted in a postpaid envelope. By 2010, Blockbuster was bankrupt and Netflix was a widely-known brand about to enjoy explosive global growth.

Meanwhile, Netflix had something much, much bigger in mind. Founder Reed Hastings wanted to deliver movies online through streaming video, not through the mail. With incredible focus and innovation, he led Netflix to be a world leader in delivering streaming entertainment. At the same time, consumers were benefiting from faster and faster internet download speeds provided by cable and wireless firms. Hastings knew that the boundless power of advancing technologies would continue to make everything better, smaller, cheaper and faster. Hastings made a huge bet, and was vindicated when online subscriptions soared, both in the U.S. and around the world.

Now he’s making an equally innovative gamble—turning Netflix into much more than an advanced subscription and delivery system. He knew that other technology-based firms could operate platforms that deliver entertainment online. So, the big question for the long-run was how could he create true competitive advantage? By creating and delivering unique content of extremely-compelling quality. Netflix completely stunned the entertainment industry by winning the bidding war for “House of Cards,” then paying for the production of a TV show that was a massive, award-winning success. It was the first time that such programming had ever been released without the aid of the usual TV networks and cable operators. Equally innovative was the fact that all 13 episodes were released at once, so that viewers could binge on them all they wanted.

For the future, Netflix is leading once again with its massive $8 billion budget for more than 700 TV shows, comedy programs and movies during 2018 alone. An interesting note: 80 of those shows will be produced in non-English languages focused on international markets. This makes Netflix among the top spenders for original content, among deeply-entrenched names like Disney. The strategy works—with about 120 million subscribers worldwide, Netflix is a soaring success. This still leaves Netflix with hundreds of millions of global broadband users to sign up in the future. Nearly anyone can create a good website with enough time and money, but it takes guts, brains and true innovation to create compellingly irresistible content. In today’s brutally competitive entertainment industry, Netflix is a clear winner.
