Mr. D. stands for "Mister Digital" and is a symbol for the developments in the digital generation. "With Mr. D. as an example, digital content trends become visible. On the one hand we would like to get a better insight into the developments in this area, and on the other hand, we would like to show companies their business potential and success with mobile operator payment," Tauchner explains the project objective.

Digital  generation  trends  overview: 

  • More than 130 million Western European smartphone owners accessed social media sites on their handsets in 2012; Facebook alone now has more than 870 million users worldwide on mobile handsets and tablets, while Twitter has around 175 million. (Source: Juniper Research, 12/2013)
  • Digital content worth around €790 million was billed via direct carrier billing in Europe in 2012; this is expected to increase to more than €5.2 billion per annum by 2017 (DIMOCO - Juniper Research, 12/2013)
  • More than 45% of Western Europeans purchased digital content on their smartphones or tablets in 2013 (Juniper Research, 12/2013)
  • According to Localytics, the average time spent on a tablet news app session is just under 15 minutes. (12/2013)
  • Across Europe, more than 80 million consumer-owned devices were used in the enterprise in 2013. (Juniper Research, 12/2013)
  • NFC retail payments in Europe approached €1 billion in 2013. (Juniper Research, 12/2013)

  • Mr. D. is both media meshing - performing a second media activity related to his TV viewing (posting on social media about the TV programme) and media stacking - performing an unrelated media activity (playing the game on his tablet) while watching TV. According to OFCOM's 2013 Communications Market Report, 25% of UK adults now media mesh and 49% media stack; amongst tablet owners, 81% media mesh and/or media stack. (12/2013)

In a recently published white paper by Juniper Research and DIMOCO, mobile operator payment was confirmed as the ideal digital content payment method. Companies profit from a higher reach, a better conversion rate and a transaction volume increase: "By implementing direct carrier billing, a 10 to 14 time higher conversion rate and a transaction volume increase was determined.

A strange thing is happening along the way to the Internet of Things, namely far too many devices to work with and manage. It has become clear that we'll need much higher efficiency user experiences that can allow us to more easily and scalably work with the thousands of devices that will soon be in each of our lives. Enter the conversational interface revolution, combining bots we can literally talk with, gesture to, and even direct with our thoughts, with embedded artificial intelligence, wh...
Ask someone to architect an Internet of Things (IoT) solution and you are guaranteed to see a reference to the cloud. This would lead you to believe that IoT requires the cloud to exist. However, there are many IoT use cases where the cloud is not feasible or desirable. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Dave McCarthy, Director of Products at Bsquare Corporation, will discuss the strategies that exist to extend intelligence directly to IoT devices and sensors, freeing them from the constraints of ...
The Internet of Things will challenge the status quo of how IT and development organizations operate. Or will it? Certainly the fog layer of IoT requires special insights about data ontology, security and transactional integrity.

The first three rules for winning in this age of hyper-digital transformation are: Advantages in speed, analytics and operational tempos must be captured by implementing an optimized information logistics system (OILS) Real-time operational tempos (IT, people and business processes) must be achieved Businesses that can "analyze data and act and with speed" will dominate those t...
The Jevons Paradox suggests that when technological advances increase efficiency of a resource, it results in an overall increase in consumption. Writing on the increased use of coal as a result of technological improvements, 19th-century economist William Stanley Jevons found that these improvements led to the development of new ways to utilize coal. In his session at 19th Cloud Expo, Mark Thiele, Chief Strategy Officer for Apcera, will compare the Jevons Paradox to modern-day enterprise IT, e...
