Three mobile apps that can help you win the battle for customer mindshare?
Mobile is the new battleground for consumer mind share across many Industries. Although business and IT are aligned on what they think is important research shows it often isn’t what end users value.

Mobility has produced a mind shift with your customers. They have become the consumers of now. They demand an exceptional mobile user experience anytime and anywhere. Forrester Research calls this the mobile moment, a point in time when someone pulls out a mobile device to get what they want – when they want it. These mobile users have become impatient and intolerant of problematic mobile apps. And they are very likely to abandon or delete slow performing, crashing or battery-hogging mobile apps. So what should a mobility team do?
Watch this Webinar with Forrester analyst Ted Schadler and Hewlett Packard’s Christoph Pfister as they share how analyzing mobile applications with mobile APM tools can protect your company’s brand and future revenues. Learn how SpeechTrans used big data analytics to guide their development roadmap and achieve a 5-star mobile app rating in the app stores.
Learn how to:
• Measure what matters most from the user’s perspective
• Focus on the problematic issues that are impacting the most users
• Continuously monitor and improve – prioritize fixes to achieve a 5-star rating
Mobility is a catalyst for disruption in the architecture, operations, and governance of today’s enterprise IT. 2015 gave us a major evolution in operating system architecture (Android for Work, Windows 10), the emergence of wearables (Apple Watch), and an expanded threat landscape (StageFright, XcodeGhost, YiSpecter).
This coming year will require a rethink of traditional security approaches as mobile and desktop merge and application modernization becomes a priority. This session provides a practical walk-through of the issues and potential initiatives CIOs must address as they plan for 2016.

Mobile devices are becoming the preferred platform for online banking, commerce and accessing business applications. In the recent Black Friday to Cyber Monday weekend, mobile devices accounted for 39 percent of online transactions. This increased reliance on mobile is driving an increase in fraud and cybercrime attacks through mobile devices, with organized cybercriminals deploying sophisticated attacks that exploit mobile technology.
Cybersecurity and fraud prevention professionals require defenses specifically designed to protect against losses and exposure from mobile attacks. Attend this webinar to understand how to protect transactions from native mobile applications and browsers in real time, without adding friction to the user experience.
•How authentication from mobile devices differs from laptops and PCs
•Indicators of potential fraud from smartphones and tablets

Very few sectors and market segments are left untouched by the digital/mobile convergence ecosystem. The retail and distribution sectors are among those where new consumer behaviours and consumption patterns extensively using digital and mobile tools and devices are changing the paradigms. Comparing prices on the go, comparing products on the move, shopping on the go, Research Online, Purchase offline (RoPo), Social Local Mobile commerce/SoLoMo possibly including augmented reality and targeted advertisement are forcing to coordinate far better the physical and virtual distribution, retail and delivery channels.
Big data, which is increasingly linked to the use of mobile devices by adding a geographical component to the transactions, is therefore increasingly a strategic resource not only for mobile operators but also to technology giants such as Google or Amazon, retailers, banks and payment services providers.
Policy and regulation play a vital role here, especially in the EU markets where detailed provisions protect consumer privacy and regulate individual consent to process personal data. The new EU Data Protection Regulation foresees limits as to profiling.
Furthermore, according to the 2009 regulatory framework, a specific regime applies for the use of mobile location data. Because big data enables the making of huge amounts of unprecedented connections between consumer information, its reality inevitably challenges the ‘consent’ concept of the EU data protection rules.
Industry / policy solutions to be discussed:
• effective use of big data in the mobile business ecosystem
• linking data and profiling consumers across different platforms (mobile networks, online email and social network accounts, payment services, retailers)
• reconcile mobile big data with the EU data protection framework
• what do the expected new EU data protection laws mean for mobile data processing?
• how to obtain a valid customer ‘consent’ in the big data context?
