Enterprise Mobility: The Power of Big Data & Mobility

Dinner Theme: Enterprise Mobility: The Power of Big Data & Mobility

Mobility and Big Data, however, when combined can provide an opportunity to not only offer users convenience and utility, but to actually drive real behaviour change. These two disruptive trends are intertwined, as the unique benefits of mobile – ubiquity, immediacy and relevance – are magnified by big data, and the societal impact of big data is tied to the increasingly central mobile device. And while the need for mobile has been proven across various industries, somewhere between seventy and ninety percent of mobile apps are abandoned within the first two months after being downloaded because they are not connected to data and analytics that make them impactful and engaging.
