NEW YORK, April 21, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Oi S.A. (NYSE: OIBR) Brazil is in a unique position in the telecommunications industry with access to the considerable growth in mobile that has spread throughout the world as of late. Although Brazil is currently fourth in the number of mobile phones in the world, the country sports a relatively high 136 mobile phones per 100 citizens, which is higher than the three countries in front of Brazil (China, India, and the US). Further, mobile growth is only expected to increase as Brazil's middle class sees increasing wealth and therefore higher smartphone penetration. Presently, Brazil is the world's 7th largest economy with GDP of approximately $2.2 trillion annually. One of the companies that has and should continue to capitalize on the growth potential in Brazil is Oi S.A.
Oi S.A. (OIBR), through its subsidiaries, provides integrated telecommunication services for residential customers, companies, and government agencies in Brazil. The company operates in three segments: fixed-line and data transmission services (i.e. local and long distance services); mobile services (i.e. voice, text, and data applications); and other services (i.e. internet access services, online advertising, television services, etc.). The company is one of the principal telecom service providers in Brazil with approximately 75 million revenue generating units (RGUs). According to ANATEL, the Brazilian agency that regulates and supervises telecommunications in the country, OIBR most recently controlled approximately 41.4% of the Brazilian fixed-line market and 18.6% of the Brazilian mobile telecom market. Further, the company's mobile network covers areas in which roughly 88.5% of the Brazilian population lives and works.

Too often with compelling new technologies market participants become overly enamored with that attractiveness of the technology and neglect underlying business drivers. This tendency, what some call the “newest shiny object syndrome” is understandable given that virtually all of us are heavily engaged in technology. But it is also mistaken. Without concrete business cases driving its deployment, IoT, like many other technologies before it, will fade into obscurity.

With all the incredible momentum behind the Internet of Things (IoT) industry, it is easy to forget that not a single CEO wakes up and wonders if “my IoT is broken.” What they wonder is if they are making the right decisions to do all they can to increase revenue, decrease costs, and improve customer experience – effectively the same challenges they have always had in growing their business. The exciting thing about the IoT industry is now these decisions can be better, faster, and smarter. Now ...

In this Power Panel at @ThingsExpo, moderated by Conference Chair Roger Strukhoff, panelists discussed what things are the most important, which will have the most profound...

To capitalize on the ubiquitous disruption driving this transformation, companies must be able to innovate at an increasingly rapid pace. Traditional approaches for driving innovation are now woefully inadequate for keeping up with the breadth of disruption and change facin...

Microservices are a very exciting architectural approach that many organizations are looking to as a way to accelerate innovation. Microservices promise to allow teams to move away from monolithic "ball of mud" systems, but the reality is that, in the vast majority of organizations, different projects and technologies will continue to be developed at different speeds. How to handle the dependencies between these disparate systems with different iteration cycles? Consider the "canoncial problem"...

I recently attended and was a speaker at the 4th International Internet of @ThingsExpo at the Santa Clara Convention Center. I also had the opportunity to attend this event last year and I wrote a blog from that show talking about how the “Enterprise Impact of IoT” was a key theme of last year’s show. I was curious to see if the same theme would still resonate 365 days later and what, if any, changes I would see in the content presented.
