Research and Markets: Future of Mobile Commerce: Opportunities for Carriers, Merchants, and Telecom Vendors

Research and Markets (http://www.researchandmarkets.com/research/lws34n/future_of_mobile) has announced the addition of the "Future of Mobile Commerce: Opportunities for Carriers, Merchants, and Telecom Vendors" report to their offering.

Once an emerging service, prepaid communications is now considered a mature offering. However, it has evolved beyond communications to include content, applications and commerce.

From a mobile commerce perspective, mobile shopping is evolving as well with merchants increasingly recognizing the need to capture the attention of consumers on-the-go, drive purchase decisions, build brand loyalty, and support ongoing customer/business relationships.

The use of stored value and subsidization is one technique in the toolkit to encourage in-store shopping and purchasing to combat the so-called showrooming phenomenon.

This report evaluates technologies for prepaid content/commerce, stored value, and related areas. The report also analyzes third-party subsidization models and other methods to drive more shopping and actual buying at the point-of-sale.

While we have figured out how to run containerized applications in the cloud using schedulers, we've yet to come up with a good solution to bridge the gap between getting your contain...

In her session at @ThingsExpo, Dr Silvia Pfeiffer, WebRTC Applications Team Lead at National ICT Australia, looked at differ...
