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."

DevOps is often described as a combination of technology and culture. Without both, DevOps isn't complete. However, applying the culture to outdated technology is a recipe for disaster; as response times grow and connections between teams are delayed by technology, the culture will die. A Nutanix Enterprise Cloud has many benefits that provide the needed base for a true DevOps paradigm.

But consumers and businesses will expect seamless experiences and real-time responsiveness. What does this mean for IoT devices and the infrastructure that supports them?

That organizational culture is influenced by the personalities and management styles of Executive Management, the wider culture in which the organization is situated, and the personalities of key team members at all levels of the organization. This culture and entrenched interests usually throw a wrench in the work...
