At Apps World 2014, Airpush Featured on High-Level Panel Exploring Monetization Strategies for Mobile App Developers

“Show me the monetization.”

That could well be the call to action for Thursday afternoon’s panel at Apps World North America 2014, “Monetization as a Foundation for Developer Businesses.” Prominent on that panel will be Tan Tmangraksat, VP of Publisher Solutions, Airpush (, a leading mobile ad platform. The company is exhibiting in Booth #101, at Moscone Center West.

Airpush’s appearance at Apps World follows closely on the heels of two watershed developments for the company: the news last week that Forbes has placed Airpush second on its 2014 list of “America’s 100 Most Promising Companies,” and this week’s announcement of a partnership with OpenX (, one of the world’s leading providers of digital and mobile advertising technology, to launch AirX, a major new private mobile ad exchange.



At Apps World North America 2014, members of the media are invited to attend a lively panel discussion on how industry leaders are exploring emerging trends to help drive new revenues, usage and engagement of mobile developers. Among the themes:


● Monetization strategies: in-app purchase, virtual currencies, freemium, ad-supported, and premium sponsorships

● How to increase your cart conversion, revealing the secrets

● Exploring different ways to enhance the revenue potential of both paid and freemium apps, tapping new revenue sources

● How to leverage an API sharing community portal to drive new revenues, usage, and engagement of mobile developers

AppsWorld North America 2014 features two days of engagement and discussion around the rapidly-growing mobile apps industry. The developer conference and exhibition takes place at San Francisco’s Moscone Center West, Feb. 5-6. With more than 8000 developers, mobile marketers, mobile operators, device manufacturers, platform owners and industry professionals, the conference features keynotes, targeted workshop tracks, 1-on-1 meetings, networking parties and more -- all tackling a spectrum of issues across the app ecosystem. The event also includes free developer workshop tracks and an exhibition with 250+ exhibitors.

This week, the team assembled in NYC for @Cloud Expo 2015 and @ThingsExpo 2015. For the past four years, this has been a must-attend event for MetraTech. We were happy to once again join industry visionaries, colleagues, customers and even competitors to share and explore the ways in which the Internet of Things (IoT) will impact our industry. Over the course of the show, we discussed the types of challenges we will collectively need to solve to capitalize on the opportunity IoT presents.
As more intelligent IoT applications shift into gear, they’re merging into the ever-increasing traffic flow of the Internet. It won’t be long before we experience bottlenecks, as IoT traffic peaks during rush hours. Organizations that are unprepared will find themselves by the side of the road unable to cross back into the fast lane. As billions of new devices begin to communicate and exchange data – will your infrastructure be scalable enough to handle this new interconnected world?
Today’s connected world is moving from devices towards things, what this means is that by using increasingly low cost sensors embedded in devices we can create many new use cases. These span across use cases in cities, vehicles, home, offices, factories, retail environments, worksites, health, logistics, and health. These use cases rely on ubiquitous connectivity and generate massive amounts of data at scale. These technologies enable new business opportunities, ways to optimize and automate, al...

Similarly large monolithic development processes have been forced to be broken into smaller agile development cycles. Looking at trends in software development, microservices architectures meet the same demands. Additional benefits of microservices architectures are compartmentalization and a limited impact of service failure versus a complete software malfunction....
