Sense Networks Reveals Mobile Marketing Predictions for 2013

Sense Networks, the original Big Data mobile location company, today announced its predictions for mobile marketers in 2013. In 2012, Sense Networks transformed the landscape for mobile marketers with the release of Retail Retargeting™, the first geo retargeting solution for mobile advertising which allows retailers to identify mobile users who have been shopping at their store and retarget them with personalized ads when they are planning future purchases. Retail Retargeting also targets prospects that are frequently near a retailer’s location and that meet the retailer’s unique behavioral targeting priorities, helping retailers attract and convert new customers.

“This past year marketers began to realize the power of using location data combined with understanding consumer behavior and intent in order to reach the right consumers via mobile, with the best offer, at the optimal time in the shopper’s journey,” said David Petersen, CEO, Sense Networks. “Next year will be even more disruptive for marketers and the industry as a whole. We predict we’ll see major industry players putting a focus on mobile, and brands will finally realize the power of direct mobile communication. Sense Networks looks forward to being part of the innovation and change in 2013.”

Sense Networks 2013 Predictions Include:

1) Amazon and Google will catapult daily deals 2.0
Major online players like Google and Amazon will soon dethrone Groupon and LivingSocial, by leveraging their mobile payment capabilities. Advertisers will see greater ROI if consumers can use mobile to take advantage of a deal in just one or two mobile clicks--Amazon and Google can make that happen with their mobile payment capabilities.

2) Ad targeting will bridge the chasm between PC and mobile
This year we’re likely to see technology providers crack the code on how to translate PC user targeting data over to mobile. This capability will enable marketers to connect with their audience on whichever screen they are using, as well as get a more complete view of the consumer for sales attribution.

3) Brands will bypass retailers en mass and advertise directly to consumers
Instead of depending upon retailers to promote new products on store shelves, brands will embrace mobile ads in a big way in 2013. Rather than shying away from mobile, brands will embrace mobile as a way to deliver information and deals directly to consumers without the retailer “middleman.”

4) Yahoo! causes mobile acquisition domino effect
Mergers and acquisitions in mobile advertising will take center stage in 2013. We predict that Yahoo! will place a major emphasis on mobile. Start-ups and market leaders will be snatched up by years end as major players look to build up their mobile arsenal.

5) AdExchanges will dominate growth in impression supply
While mobile Ad Networks will still be the leading source of impression inventory in 2013, AdExchanges will emerge this year as marketers focus on quality over quantity. As marketers put a greater focus on targeted audience-focused, data-centric ad buying, they will increasingly work with specialized DSP partners who can skim impressions of interest to their customers.

Amazon has gradually rolled out parts of its IoT offerings, but these are just the tip of the iceberg. In addition to optimizing their backend AWS offerings, Amazon is laying the ground work to be a major force in IoT - especially in the connected home and office. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Chris Kocher, founder and managing director of Grey Heron, explained how Amazon is extending its reach to become a major force in IoT by building on its dominant cloud IoT platform, its Dash Button strat...
Internet-of-Things discussions can end up either going down the consumer gadget rabbit hole or focused on the sort of data logging that industrial manufacturers have been doing forever. However, in fact, companies today are already using IoT data both to optimize their operational technology and to improve the experience of customer interactions in novel ways. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Gordon Haff, Red Hat Technology Evangelist, will share examples from a wide range of industries – includin...
"We build IoT infrastructure products - when you have to integrate different devices, different systems and cloud you have to build an application to do that but we eliminate the need to build an application. Our products can integrate any device, any system, any cloud regardless of protocol," explained Peter Jung, Chief Product Officer at Pulzze Systems, in this SYS-CON.tv interview at @ThingsExpo, held November 1-3, 2016, at the Santa Clara Convention Center in Santa Clara, CA.
"Once customers get a year into their IoT deployments, they start to realize that they may have been shortsighted in the ways they built out their deployment and the key thing I see a lot of people looking at is - how can I take equipment data, pull it back in an IoT solution and show it in a dashboard," stated Dave McCarthy, Director of Products at Bsquare Corporation, in this SYS-CON.tv interview at @ThingsExpo, held November 1-3, 2016, at the Santa Clara Convention Center in Santa Clara, CA.
The cloud promises new levels of agility and cost-savings for Big Data, data warehousing and analytics. But it’s challenging to understand all the options – from IaaS and PaaS to newer services like HaaS (Hadoop as a Service) and BDaaS (Big Data as a Service). In her session at @BigDataExpo at @ThingsExpo, Hannah Smalltree, a director at Cazena, provided an educational overview of emerging “as-a-service” options for Big Data in the cloud. This is critical background for IT and data professionals...

There are proven methods to bind both legacy voice applications and traditional PSTN audio into cloud-based applications and services at a carrier scale. Some of the most successful implementations leverage WebRTC, WebSockets, SIP and other open source technologies. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Da...

Today we can collect lots and lots of performance data. We build beautiful dashboards and even have fancy query languages to access and transform the data. Still performance data is a secret language only a couple of people understand. The more business becomes digital the more stakeholders are interested in this data including how it relates to business. Some of these people have never used a monitoring tool before. They have a question on their mind like “How is my application doing” but no id...

Information technology is an industry that has always experienced change, and the dramatic change sweeping across the industry today could not be truthfully described as the first time we've seen such widespread change impacting customer investments. However, the rate of the change, and the potential outcomes from today's digital transformation has the distinct potential to separate the industry into two camps: Organizations that see the change coming, embrace it, and successful leverage it; and...
The Internet of Things (IoT) promises to simplify and streamline our lives by automating routine tasks that distract us from our goals. This promise is based on the ubiquitous deployment of smart, connected devices that link everything from industrial control systems to automobiles to refrigerators. Unfortunately, comparatively few of the devices currently deployed have been developed with an eye toward security, and as the DDoS attacks of late October 2016 have demonstrated, this oversight can ...
Extracting business value from Internet of Things (IoT) data doesn’t happen overnight. There are several requirements that must be satisfied, including IoT device enablement, data analysis, real-time detection of complex events and automated orchestration of actions. Unfortunately, too many companies fall short in achieving their business goals by implementing incomplete solutions or not focusing on tangible use cases. In his general session at @ThingsExpo, Dave McCarthy, Director of Products...

More and more brands have jumped on the IoT bandwagon. We have an excess of wearables – activity trackers, smartwatches, smart glasses and sneakers, and more that track seemingly endless datapoints. However, most consumers have no idea what “IoT” means. Creating more wearables that track data shouldn't be the aim of brands; delivering meaningful, tangible relevance to their users should be. We're in a period in which the IoT pendulum is still swinging. Initially, it swung toward "smart for smar...
