ORLANDO, FL -- (Marketwired) -- 10/10/13 -- Engage Mobility, Inc. (OTCQB: ENGA), a provider of mobile marketing technologies and solutions, today announced its utilization of an extensive 'Big Data' database of mobile users totaling more than 32 million consumers and 8 million businesses. This resource is a fundamental element of the Company's Mobile Engagement System, a proprietary platform that helps retailers and mobile marketers reach relevant potential customers.
The market opportunity for mobile marketing and associated technologies is staggering. Deloitte recently found in a study that 5% of in-store purchases were influenced by mobile in 2012, a figure that is expected to grow to 20% by 2016, amounting to $628-$752 billion in mobile-influenced retail sales.
Engage Mobility's rich database is constantly improved and expanded as its platform is continuously acquiring new users. The Mobile Engagement System implements cutting-edge mobile technology such as geo-targeting, geo-fencing, but also incorporates social insights, loyalty, sharing and rewards programs, as well as real time robust analytics. This technology initiates high-quality customer acquisition as retailers communicate with consumers of the right demographic for their product. Furthermore, as retailers implement Engage's program to attract customers, new data is gathered which enriches existing and future data pools. The more information available on a given user, the more tailored the conversation can be. Engage's database is fully opt-in and abides by all privacy laws. This data is extremely valuable, as mobile marketing becomes the go-to method to create in-store sales. The Engage 'Big Data' Consumer Database has 23 basic columns of demographics per record and over 70 categories of interests. Business data includes geo-location, industry (SIC/NAISC) codes, company revenues, employee size, and titles of executives.
"Engage offers mobile marketers a database of more than 40 million consumers and businesses, a huge pool through which to cultivate relevant and loyal customers and partnerships," explained James Byrd, CEO of Engage. "This is a database that the founders of our Company have cultivated and built over years of being in the direct marketing and data management business, and we are fortunate to have such an asset as a central part of our business offering. Our Mobile Engagement System leverages this information and segments relevant users based on demographics and geography to maximize engagement and conversion-to-sales rates. We are well positioned as mobile marketing becomes integrated with in-store sales towards the goal of customer acquisition and customer engagement. Our clients can track potential customers on our backend data platform, which can lead to repeat sales and product advocacy."

Complete Internet of Things (IoT) embedded device security is not just about the device but involves the entire product’s identity, data and control integrity, and services traversing the cloud. A device can no longer be looked at as an island; it is a part of a system. In fact, given the cross-domain interactions enabled by IoT it could be a part of many systems. Also, depending on where the device is deployed, for example, in the office building versus a factory floor or oil field, security ha...

Between 2005 and 2020, data volumes will grow by a factor of 300 – enough data to stack CDs from the earth to the moon 162 times. This has come to be known as the ‘big data’ phenomenon. Unfortunately, traditional approaches to handling, storing and analyzing data aren’t adequate at this scale: they’re too costly, slow and physically cumbersome to keep up. Fortunately, in response a new breed of technology has emerged that is cheaper, faster and more scalable. Yet, in meeting these new needs they...

When it comes to cloud computing, the ability to turn massive amounts of compute cores on and off on demand sounds attractive to IT staff, who need to manage peaks and valleys in user activity. With cloud bursting, the majority of the data can stay on premises while tapping into compute from public cloud providers, reducing risk and minimizing need to move large files. In his session at 18th Cloud Expo, Scott Jeschonek, Director of Product Management at Avere Systems, discussed the IT and busin...

In this strange new world where more and more power is drawn from business technology, companies are effectively straddling two paths on the road to innovation and transformation into digital enterprises. The first path is the heritage trail – with “legacy” technology forming the background. Here, extant technologies are transformed by core IT teams to provide more API-driven approaches. Legacy systems can restrict companies that are transitioning into digital enterprises. To truly become a lead...

In IT, we sometimes coin terms for things before we know exactly what they are and how they’ll be used. The resulting terms may capture a common set of aspirations and goals – as “cloud” did broadly for on-demand, self-service, and flexible computing. But such a term can also lump together diverse and even competing practices, technologies, and priorities to the point where important distinctions are glossed over and lost.

All clouds are not equal. To succeed in a DevOps context, organizations should plan to develop/deploy apps across a choice of on-premise and public clouds simultaneously depending on the business needs. This is where the concept of the Lean Cloud comes in - resting on the idea that you often need to relocate your app modules over their life cycles for both innovation and operational efficiency in the cloud. In his session at @DevOpsSummit at19th Cloud Expo, Valentin (Val) Bercovici, CTO of Soli...

"Once customers get a year into their IoT deployments, they start to realize that they may have been shortsighted in the ways they built out their deployment and the key thing I see a lot of people looking at is - how can I take equipment data, pull it back in an IoT solution and show it in a dashboard," stated Dave McCarthy, Director of Products at Bsquare Corporation, in this SYS-CON.tv interview at @ThingsExpo, held November 1-3, 2016, at the Santa Clara Convention Center in Santa Clara, CA.
