Mobile services must be ubiquitous meaning they should be available anywhere and able to communicate across service providers as well as country boundaries. A concept called IPX or IP eXchange is a global interworking and interconnection cloud that enables a wide variety of services – especially for today’s increasingly IP ecosystem. While the direct beneficiaries are Mobile Network Operators, the IPX will also benefit fixed and OTT service providers as well as Enterprises and of course, ultimately the subscribers or end users.
This webinar will:
- Provide an overview of the IPX
- Show how the IPX is used today
- Explain IPX benefits to both Mobile Network Operators and other Service Providers
- Explain how IPX will evolve going forward to encompass a variety of new services

Overcoming Showroom Syndrome: Using the Mobile Channel to Bring Consumers back to Traditional Brick and Mortar Retail
Showroom Syndrome is when consumers browse products in brick and mortar retail locations and purchase those items online. In the past few years, this "syndrome" has helped lead to the demise of many well-known chains. Retailers not adapting to today’s new marketplace are doomed to repeat many of the same mistakes their out-of-business predecessors made.
The mobile channel provides an increasingly powerful set of tools that can bring consumers back into brick and mortar stores. The right mix of products, a continuous engagement cycle, leveraging loyalty, coupons and other tactics will enable enterprises to learn and understand consumer behaviors and in turn shape consumer experiences. This will require a multi-channel, multi-faceted mobile strategy that will promote consumers to purchase products in brick and mortar locations, as opposed to purchasing online.

Introductory Corporate Mobile Banking solutions currently allow corporations and small business owners access to simple banking services such as such as alerts, account balances, customer service, bill payments, fraud alerts etc. As corporate mobile banking consumers mature and begin to appreciate the mobile channel, banks will begin to introduce more interactive functionalities like positive pay decisioning, payment approvals, wire releases payment initiation.

The mobile revolution is about the ability to access data regardless of when, how or where you need it, but going mobile with customer relationship management is much more than convenience. It's about bottom line impact by engaging the end customer in a timely and relevant way.
Retail and brand owners are becoming aware that the use of mobile in a piecemeal fashion with no real follow up or ongoing dialogue with customers, and little tie-in to larger in-store loyalty schemes do not yield desired results. Many are increasingly shifting to a more ‘personal relationship management’ approach with their campaigns, which looks at using the mobile channel to create ongoing relationships with consumers, tying existing campaigns and mobile loyalty programs together and using analytics to measure and improve interactions with customers.
In fact, getting your Brand into the consumers’ hands has never been easier.
In this installment of the Sybase 365 Webinar Series, our panel of industry experts will present changing trends in the use of mobile in marketing, showcasing regional and global case studies; have an in-depth discussion on ways to build a value-added ‘go to market’ mobile strategy; and most importantly, how to engage your customers in a ‘personal relationship’ with your brand via the mobile channel.

This webinar will go in depth and discuss the following:
•How IPX services can provide a variety of functions for today's 3G and fixed operators as well as trusted enterprises.
•The variety of solutions today and more tomorrow as services evolve across the telecom ecosystem.
•How soon this evolution will take place and the challenges and opportunities it presents along the way.
