PALO ALTO, CA -- (Marketwired) -- 01/14/14 -- With the holiday retail season now in the rearview mirror, Jumio, Inc. today released its 2013 mobile commerce analysis, finding that retailers celebrated the most successful mobile holiday shopping season to date, yet still missed out on billions of dollars in sales due to the prevalence of outdated mobile payment experiences. While shoppers increasingly took to their smartphones in search of the perfect gift, lost sales were equivalent to over one-quarter (27 percent) of total mobile commerce profits, according to Jumio's analysis.
Data released by the National Retail Federation shows that holiday sales overall totaled $601.8 billion with online purchases accounting for $95.7 billion. According to IBM, 16.6 percent of online sales during the fourth quarter were made on mobile. But, according to a recent Harris poll, 47 percent of shoppers abandon purchases(1) on mobile devices due to payment friction, and the majority (57 percent) do not attempt the transaction later(2) on a computer, meaning nearly $15.9 billion was left on the table by retailers this holiday season in the form of lost sales.
"While consumers abandon mobile shopping carts for a variety of reasons, from slow network speeds to high shipping costs, the most significant among them is entirely under a retailer's control -- removing payment barriers," said Daniel Mattes, founder and CEO, Jumio. "On the whole, retailers with mobile apps have done a remarkable job with most aspects of their mobile shopping experience and this season's numbers certainly show that. However, checkout pages and payment methods have not kept pace with what smartphone devices and services can do today to streamline those processes. This cost the industry billions of dollars this holiday season. Good news is that we expect that number to diminish as new technologies take root."
In addition to revenue lost due to payment friction at the time of checkout, retailers risk losing money on future purchases as well, with 63 percent of consumers less likely to buy from the same company via other purchase channels after abandoning a mobile transaction due to a poor experience, according to the recent Harris poll. While nearly one-half of consumers (47 percent) said they failed to complete a purchase because the checkout process took too long, other reasons shoppers don't complete a mobile transaction include:
- 51 percent reported they didn't feel safe entering their credit card information
- 41 percent said the checkout was too difficult on their device
- 23 percent said they failed to complete their purchase because it would not go through
"As mobile commerce sales increase each year, retailers need to offer a mobile checkout process that caters to on-the-go shoppers," continued Mattes. "Increased security measures to protect consumers and merchants as well as more convenient payment options are essential in creating the seamless mobile experience necessary to drive purchases from the cart to the front door."

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.

Virtualization over the past years has become a key strategy for IT to acquire multi-tenancy, increase utilization, develop elasticity and improve security. And virtual machines (VMs) are quickly becoming a main vehicle for developing and deploying applications. The introduction of containers seems to be bringing another and perhaps overlapped solution for achieving the same above-mentioned benefits. Are a container and a virtual machine fundamentally the same or different? And how? Is one techn...

Adding public cloud resources to an existing application can be a daunting process. The tools that you currently use to manage the software and hardware outside the cloud aren’t always the best tools to efficiently grow into the cloud. All of the major configuration management tools have cloud orchestration plugins that can be leveraged, but there are also cloud-native tools that can dramatically improve the efficiency of managing your application lifecycle.
