The Platform Wars of 2018


The new battleground in enterprise software is likely to be the software platform. This is not to say that analytics and security are not important, but they are being handled in different ways. Security is being handled in ways that address both hardware and software vulnerabilities, but these things aren’t what customers spend their days thinking about. While everyone wants security, the attitude is that it’s someone else’s job. Platforms, on the other hand, affect more people — and importantly, they are key to making and saving money.

Winning Tactics for Marketing in the Micro-Moment


Google believes that all the important consumer buying decisions happen in a brief flash of time.

IoT and 5G: New Revenues, Use Cases, Value-added Services


The 5G standards target billions of new devices that will connect to operators’ networks over the next decade and beyond. Each device type serves a use case that can be high-volume with low throughput requirements, or low-volume but high-value from a customer’s point of view. The list of use cases keeps growing as new types of devices are added to the network, and as existing devices find new use cases with embedded mobile connectivity. For instance, a GoPro-type of wearable camera helps sports fanatics capture their exciting experiences and broadcast them live worldwide through a mobile broadband connection.

Big Players Scored in the E-Commerce Battles of 2017


Moves that allowed major e-commerce players to jockey for position both off and on the Internet made headlines in 2017. “The year was a triumph for market leaders,” said Mike Comstock, a senior adviser at GrandCanals. “Leading companies like Amazon, Target and Walmart just got stronger, as they have the resources to either build or buy whatever they need to win.” Walmart had been out of the e-commerce race for a long time, but that changed with the $3.3 billion acquisition of Jet in 2016, which led to more acquisitions.
