Mobile Commerce, Speed, Operational Tempos and the Real-Time Enterprise | Part 1 In a recent survey of eighty IT and business professionals, 73 percent responded that having optimized mobile applications and user experiences was "very important to critical" to their company's future success.  In the same survey however, 78 percent reported their mobile strategies and plans were inhibited or limited by their existing IT environment. These results reveal a critical gap between the requirements for success and the reality of the obstacles enterprises are facing. Overcoming these challenges is the strategic imperative facing large enterprises today. Enterprises understand that digital transformations being driven by mobile technologies and the Internet of Things (IoT) are changing their industries and markets.

IoT and Networked Field Services By @KRBenedict | @ThingsExpo [#IoT]

Articles about the IoT (Internet of Things) have moved from technical journals to our daily newspapers.  They are a popular mainstream media topic today, but where are there actual business values found as a result of the IoT?  In this article we will explore some of these topics.

Smart companies when designing mobile applications consider how they can personali... (more)

Sensing and Sharing the Physical World By @KRBenedict | @ThingsExpo [#IoT]

Sensors - Sensing and Sharing the Physical World We spend a lot of time talking and writing about the IoT (Internet of Things) in the macro, as a giant worldwide network of objects and things, communicating with themselves and others.  That is indeed interesting, but the most interesting components of the IoT, in my opinion, are the sensors. Sensors are defined as, "Devices that detect or measure a physical property and record, indicate, or otherwise responds to it."  In the context of IoT, sensors detect or measure a physical property and then communicate the findings wirelessl...

Mobile Apps - Respecting Personal Privacy By @KRBenedict | @ThingsExpo #IoT

Mobile Apps - Personalizing While Respecting Personal Privacy All the data I have been reading this week suggest mobile users want and value a personalized experience on their mobile apps or mobile website, but on the other hand they don't like giving up their personal data.  That means it is imperative to find the right balance so a mutually satisfying relationship can be fostered.  As we all know, the more data you have on an individual, the easier it is to configure a personalized experience. In a fresh Cognizant survey this week involving 5,000 participants, 68% reported they ... (more)
