The Mobile Revolution and B2B (Business-to-Business)

The Mobile Revolution and B2B (Business-to-Business) | How the Mobile Revolution Is Changing Business Communication | Scoop.it

Why mobile is igniting a revolution.

Bovee & Thill's Online Business Communication Magazines's insight:

The mobile revolution is expanding at an unprecedented, almost unbelievable, pace all around B2B organizations.


A revolution, by definition, changes the current order in a relatively short period. With 5 billion mobile subscriptions worldwide—eclipsing the combined penetration of PCs, landlines and TVs—120 billion apps downloaded in 2013 alone, and $5 billion in sales in the three quarters following iPad's launch, mobile not only qualifies as revolutionary, but also firmly stakes claim to being the most sweeping set of media of our time...or any time.

Year of Mobile? The Mobilists take on mobile commerce, mobile marketing, mobile OS trends, and predictions.

Bovee & Thill's Online Business Communication Magazines's insight:

"We have seen how apps give us control of our everyday life, whether it is turning on the lights, monitoring the security of our homes, controlling our ovens or thermostats and telling us if our milk is getting low or starting to spoil. We are seeing how it can change animal care and the effectiveness of emergency responders.


This is just the beginning of how mobile will integrate into our everyday lives. Expect everything to be super hyper-connected and communicated to us via our mobile phones allowing us to not only get information but control, as well."  . .

How Digital Technology Has Changed Communication - Part I

How Digital Technology Has Changed Communication - Part I | How the Mobile Revolution Is Changing Business Communication | Scoop.it
Changes in technology require changes in communication.
Bovee & Thill's Online Business Communication Magazines's insight:

"Twenty-first century communication has changed how we connect to the world in three essential ways:  connectivity, authenticity, and style. 


The first way is obvious to any sentient being within reach of the digital world.  As Nicco Mele notes in his brilliant book about the darker implications of the digital revolution, The End of Big, radical connectivity – our breathtaking ability to send vast amounts of data instantly, constantly, and globally – has all but transformed politics, business, and culture, bringing about the upheaval of traditional, ‘big’ institutions and the empowerment of upstarts and renegades.” . . .

Mobile Devices Make Communication Much Easier While Increasing Productivity in the Business World

Mobile Devices Make Communication Much Easier While Increasing Productivity in the Business World | How the Mobile Revolution Is Changing Business Communication | Scoop.it

"Mobile devices blur the line between work and leisure for many business professionals."

Bovee & Thill's Online Business Communication Magazines's insight:

"Many businesses that do not use mobile technologies currently and are not willing to change will most likely perish. The reason for this is because organizations that neglect to develop a mobile platform will not be able to challenge competing organizations on a productivity-based level. 


Let’s be honest, a car goes faster than a horse and buggy in the same way that a search engine is faster than flipping through an encyclopedia."  . . .
