Syntonic's Connected Services Platform gives content providers new opportunities to generate greater use of their mobile applications, leading to increased revenue through content purchases, third-party advertising, and premium upgrades.
Sponsored content delivery is easily deployed, and requires no changes to either the content or its delivery network. Syntonic's easy-to use web portal interface makes updating content, changing offers, evaluating data usage, and other tasks simple and fast.

For many that’s a good sign, as data has been proven to equal money – IF it’s ingested, integrated, and analyzed fast enough. Without real-ti...

I wanted to gather all of my Internet of Things (IOT) blogs into a single blog (that I could later use with my University of San Francisco (USF) Big Data “MBA” course). However as I started to pull these blogs together, I realized that my IOT discussion lacked a vision; it lacked an end point towards which an organization could drive their IOT envisioning, proof of value, app dev, data engineering and data science efforts. And I think that the IOT end point is really quite simple…

Traditional data warehouse and analytical systems are mature technologies that can be used to handle certain kinds of queries, but they are not always well suited to many problems, particularly when there is a need for real-time insights.
