VIENNA, January 14, 2014 /PRNewswire/ --
Leading telephone directory provides a solution to missed merchant mobile calls
Mobile ad-tech company CIAmedia today announced a deal with German print, online and mobile telephone directory service Das Telefonbuch. The directory has added CIAmedia's patented call triggered advertising SDK into its Android App, giving its user an automated and easy-to-use number suggest service.
Each time a user makes an unanswered business call, the CIAmedia SDK automatically provides alternative merchants based on location and merchant type which the user can then click to call. Up to 40% of business calls go unanswered when users call outside office hours, lines are busy, numbers are discontinued, businesses simply don't answer the phone, or the user only gets through to voicemail.
The CIAmedia SDK operates as part of the Das Telefonbuch app, in the background, so that alternatives are suggested to the user, even when the app is closed. With CIAmedia's technology inside the Das Telefonbuch app can now detect any unsuccessful business call, independent of where the user sourced and dialled the number from, e.g. following a search on Google, Bing, Yahoo, Yelp, Foursquare or any other site or app.
The service will drive more calls to Das Telefonbuch advertisers, greatly increasing value for advertisers that subscribe and appear in its directory. In addition, CIAmedia's SDK multiplies impressions within the Das Telefonbuch App as every time a user cannot get through to a business the app automatically displays suggestions to the user, greatly increasing the value of its in-app inventory.
Frank Gondorf, Managing Director for Das Telefonbuch-Servicegesellschaft said: "Integrating the CIAmedia SDK allows us to add a new level of convenience to our app users, making the Das Telefonbuch brand relevant to our users on a daily basis whenever a phone call goes unanswered. At the same time we provide an unprecedented opportunity for our advertisers to win new customers when other merchants miss calls."
Claudia Dreier-Poepperl, CEO and founder at CIAmedia, said: "We are delighted to see our patented ad-technology live in the largest market in Europe. For local search apps like Das Telefonbuch our technology represents an opportunity to increase the monetisation of their service offering by filling unanswered calls with highly targeted advertising. The benefits are threefold: increased call traffic to local advertisers, a massive uplift of in-app impressions, and an improved user experience for its customers."

We all know the latest numbers: Gartner, Inc. forecasts that 6.4 billion connected things will be in use worldwide in 2016, up 30 percent from last year, and will reach 20.8 billion by 2020. We're rapidly approaching a data production of 40 zettabytes a day – more than we can every physically store, and exabytes and yottabytes are just around the corner.
For many that’s a good sign, as data has been proven to equal money – IF it’s ingested, integrated, and analyzed fast enough. Without real-ti...

I wanted to gather all of my Internet of Things (IOT) blogs into a single blog (that I could later use with my University of San Francisco (USF) Big Data “MBA” course). However as I started to pull these blogs together, I realized that my IOT discussion lacked a vision; it lacked an end point towards which an organization could drive their IOT envisioning, proof of value, app dev, data engineering and data science efforts. And I think that the IOT end point is really quite simple…

A critical component of any IoT project is what to do with all the data being generated. This data needs to be captured, processed, structured, and stored in a way to facilitate different kinds of queries. Traditional data warehouse and analytical systems are mature technologies that can be used to handle certain kinds of queries, but they are not always well suited to many problems, particularly when there is a need for real-time insights.
