Research and Markets (http://www.researchandmarkets.com/research/q2zn3r/digital_signage) has announced the addition of the "Digital Signage & DOOH Working with Smartphones" report to their offering.
With the majority of the target audience in major countries now owning a smartphone, the ability to reach into these smartphones is very tempting. All kinds of advantages can be talked about if digital signage and Digital Out Of Home (DOOH) advertising is somehow able to connect to a viewer's smartphone. Content can now stay with the viewer after they've walked away from the sign. Content can be personally interactive. Viewer metrics are directly measured, making advertising easier to sell. New use modes are possible, some of which have yet to be imagined.
This is a young market segment that appears to be on a growth path, but one that still has its training wheels on. There is lots of confusion.
It is also a business that involves many different industries, digital signage, smartphones, App development, big data, electronic tags/beacons, advertising, mobile payment, and retailing. This mix of industries makes it particularly tough for a company to master. This report looks at the following:
- Scenarios and use modes. Some applications are obvious, but there are some that are not. There are also applications that are not yet practical.
- Technology options. There turns out to be several technical approaches, each with strengths and weaknesses. The perfect solution doesn't quite exist, and there is where new business opportunities are found.
- Vendors. Some companies have early products and deployments now, or have made some early announcements. Business models are based on both products and services.
- Issues. Privacy is an obvious issue, but there are others. An important issue that some people in Digital Signage may not have thought about is mobile payment. Some scenarios should make the industry worried.
- Analysis and Recommendations. You don't have to read on to know that the ecosystem for mobile-enabled digital signage is, at best, in the early stages. The question is "how to make it work and be attractive for merchants and consumers?" Three recommended steps are given.
Key Topics Covered:
2 Scenarios and use modes
- 2.1 Variations of the Coupon

- 2.3 Opt-in vs. opt-out

For organizations that have amassed large sums of software complexity, taking a microservices approach is the first step toward DevOps and continuous improvement / development. Integrating system-level analysis with microservices makes it easier to change and add functionality to applications at any time without the increase of risk. Before you start big transformation projects or a cloud migration, make sure these changes won’t take down your entire organization.

My team embarked on building a data lake for our sales and marketing data to better understand customer journeys. This required building a hybrid data pipeline to connect our cloud CRM with the new Hadoop Data Lake. One challenge is that IT was not in a position to provide support until we proved value and marketing did not have the experience, so we embarked on the journey ourselves within the product marketing team for our line of business within Progress.

Apache Hadoop is emerging as a distributed platform for handling large and fast incoming streams of data. Predictive maintenance, supply chain optimization, and Internet-of-Things analysis are examples where Hadoop provides the scalable storage, processing, and analytics platform to gain meaningful insights from granular data that is typically only valuable from a large-scale, aggregate view. One architecture useful for capturing and analyzing streaming data is the Lambda Architecture, represent...

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.

Providing the needed data for application development and testing is a huge headache for most organizations. The problems are often the same across companies - speed, quality, cost, and control. Provisioning data can take days or weeks, every time a refresh is required. Using dummy data leads to quality problems. Creating physical copies of large data sets and sending them to distributed teams of developers eats up expensive storage and bandwidth resources. And, all of these copies proliferating...

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. In his Day 3 Keynote at 20th Cloud Expo, Chris Brown, a Solutions Marketing Manager at Nutanix, will explore t...
