Mobile Marketing: Reaching The Untethered Consumer - Forbes

Mobile Marketing: Reaching The Untethered Consumer - Forbes | Communications for ICT | Scoop.it

Let’s face it: the mobile device is our new functional appendage, like the prehensile tail for the digital consumer. We depend on it for balance, to maneuver and, well, simply to hang out.

 

It’s the first thing we pick up when we rise and the last thing we put down before entering the analog slumber. In between, it’s our remote control of life. It’s made us universally connected and accessible.

 

Say what you will about the implications for humanity; the consumer is now always-on and free to roam. Gartner predicts that U.S. consumers will have purchased 188 million smartphones by 2016 and that tablets will comprise half of laptop shipments by 2015. The rise of the mobile device follows a tapering of traditional PC demand, as consumers increasingly replace tethered hardware with untethered devices.

 

Amplifying this effect is what Gartner calls “The Nexus of Forces,” which is the convergence and mutual reinforcement of social, mobile, rich information and cloud computing. It’s the combination of these factors that allows marketers to say with a straight face: Wherever you are, we can be right there with you.

Everything will be connected to the Internet | CNN Money

Everything will be connected to the Internet | CNN Money | Communications for ICT | Scoop.it

In January, I attended the World Economic Forum in Davos, Switzerland.

 

Much of the talk among economists and business leaders focused on austerity, inequality, and other anxiety inducers. There was, however, a set of more optimistic conversations going on that can be summed up in three vowels: IoE, or the Internet of Everything.

 

Networking giant Cisco Systems estimates that in 2000 there were about 200 million "things," mostly computers, connected via the Internet. Now the number is about 10 billion, from smartphones to climate-control systems to sensors on truck pallets.

 

As cloud storage, mobile computing, and data analysis expand, Cisco CEO John Chambers argued at Davos, we'll experience an even bigger transition in how many "things" are connected to the Internet -- nearly everything -- and in how they work.

MI: Local governments opt for cloud-based information storage

MI: Local governments opt for cloud-based information storage | Communications for ICT | Scoop.it

Macomb County is joining governments throughout Metro Detroit and elsewhere in the country in dumping antiquated tech systems and turning to cost-effective, cloud-based technology from providers such as Google, AT&T, Microsoft and IBM.

 

The cloud refers to Internet-based computing in which users can store and access information and data as it happens in real time from any Web-enabled device. Rather than paying to store data in costly hardware or software, customers of cloud services can pay on a contractual basis and have the benefit of the companies' IT departments to maintain the infrastructure.

 

The Macomb County Clerk/Register of Deeds Office is testing recording Macomb County Board of Commissioners meetings that use cloud-based Google apps.

 

"Anything we can do to make things run more efficiently, that's what we're doing," said Macomb County Clerk Carmella Sabaugh.

 

Robert Ferrari, director of digital strategy for Michigan Municipal League, said information technology upgrades are a big investment for cash-strapped jurisdictions.

 

"They have to buy servers, backup and hardware, where with the cloud you can kind of rent or pay on a monthly basis. You don't have the cost of having to update that infrastructure to stay current. That's what the big boys are for — the AT&Ts, the Googles, the Microsofts — to provide that support," Ferrari said.

 

The University of Michigan recently began rolling out Google Apps for Education, a free service to the campus's 90,000 students, faculty and staff. The university is to pay $1.8 million for initial merger assistance, but in the long-term will save $750,000 a year.

Socializing Your Enterprise to Succeed in a Creative Economy ... | Communications for ICT | Scoop.it

Collaboration is changing the way we do business on a fundamental level. The shift is being driven, in part, by the rise of mobile workforces and technology innovations like cloud-based collaboration tools. But, collaboration is also creating a more socialized workforce, which helps to drive technical innovation forward. A socialized workforce is a smarter workforce, because it leverages the organization’s collective intelligence. In the modern socialized workplace, this ability to tap into the creativity of multiple individuals can extend well beyond the physical office space to include external collaborators, even from around the globe, dramatically expanding the expertise and perspective from which you can draw upon to achieve a competitive advantage.

Small Business IT Tips: - Virtualization

Small Business IT Tips:  - Virtualization | Communications for ICT | Scoop.it

Using Virtual Machines to run your business services is probably the cheapest and easiest way to boost your business efficiency and lower costs... Maybe you have a web server, an Exchange server, a radius server, a database server, a firewall, and a file server...you could be using about 2500 WATTS!  That is a pretty great reason to consolidate all of your servers and have it pay for itself. Who says you need one of those large phone system boxes hanging on your wall that can only be serviced by an outside contractor.  How about a Voice Over IP System…All running from a Virtual Machine. The best part about virtualization is that there are paid versions… and there are FREE ones.  You could in theory run all of the suggested ideas above from a single machine with a Quad core processor and about 8GB of RAM.  Of course, server class hardware would be best, but it’s not required.

With more powerful machines becoming available it is now possible to reduce costs by consolidating several servers into one. Check out your options.

Ciaran Corcoran's curator insight, March 28, 2014 8:47 AM

Virtual machines can be used to recover data from old or obsolete forms of media and software, by emulating the media that supported the data. In a 2009 IBM study it was found that on average, a server used 425 Watts. The consolidation and virtualization of a company's many servers will greatly assist in reducing costs.

Understanding the Symbiosis of Cloud Computing, Big Data, and Mobile | Communications for ICT | Scoop.it

While most understand that cloud, big data, and mobile computing are somehow related, and benefit from each other, most don’t understand exactly what those relationships and benefits are.  Indeed, each emerging market segment is dependent upon other emerging segments of the market, and it’s helpful to break those apart to understand them better.  Perhaps even deal with them as linked concepts.

Researchers create cloud-based brain for robots | GigaOM Tech News

Researchers create cloud-based brain for robots | GigaOM Tech News | Communications for ICT | Scoop.it

A group of European researchers has released the first version of a cloud computing platform for robots that will help them take advantage of powerful virtual resources. Essentially, they’re treating robots like any other device — desktop, tablet or mobile phone — running web applications, only robots can learn from each other and can do a lot more than just update screen displays.

 

The project, carried out by a team at ETH Zurich, is called RoboEarth and its linchpin is a cloud software platform called Rapyuta. The way it works is pretty simple at a high level: robots communicate with a cloud-based application platform that carries out computation tasks and connects to a cloud database full of information such as maps, images, language, as well as to other web services. The robots themselves are pretty much hardware terminals equipped with sensors and moving parts but limited on-board processing power or data storage.

 

This, of course, is an idea that has been with us since the mainframe computer and continues today via cloud computing and web and mobile applications. Why limit a device to its own physical capabilities when there’s an infinite (although, in the case of mainframes, not so much) expanse of computing power, memory, storage and data available in the ether? As long as the device has a strong internet connection, it doesn’t need a massive hard drive or the latest, greatest processor.
