Defining Web 3.0 and Developing the Fastest Enterprise Mobility Apps I value a strong opinion.  Especially when the opinionated is an expert and willing to stand up and place a flag in the sand.  In this article, my ambitious friend, programming guru, gamer, colleague, bona fide geek and mobility expert Peter Rogers shares his opinions on the meaning of Web 3.0 and how it will impact mobile application development and the enterprise.  While he is English and prone to use words like whilst, that should not be held against him. I have two ambitions in life: to be the first person to define Web 3.0 in a meaningful way; and to be able to reform Atomic Kitten to sing at my next birthday.

Ambiguity and Digital Transformation By @KRBenedict | @ThingsExpo #IoT

We will never have complete and perfect information, or a full understanding.  We are bound to operate in an environment of ambiguity, meaning unclear, uncertain and difficult to comprehend.

Instantly Personalizing Mobile Apps - Cutting Through Chaos By @KRBenedict | @ThingsExpo #IoT

Smartphones, laptops, PCs and in-store visits have made path-to-purchase journeys very complex and confusing for online retailers to recognize and support.  Consumers can search and discover products and services using a smartphone on their way to work.  In the evening they can pull out a tablet and engage in immersive research while laying in bed.  They may decide to review some more on their desktop at work, then at lunch time stop at a brick and mortar store to look at the product in more detail.  That evening, they purchase the product online using a laptop.  How is a retaile...

Mobile and IoT Technologies Are Inside the Curve of Human Time By @KRBenedict | @ThingsExpo #IoT
