Tapit wins hotly contested AIMIA award for Best New Mobile Service or Application

Amazing achievement for year old startup.

SYDNEY - August 31, 2012 - At the AIMIA 2012 Australian mobile awards last night, Tapit took home the 'Best New Mobile Service or Application' award, after facing stiff competition from Commonwealth Bank, Roamz and Airtasker.

Tapit offers people the easiest way to get content on their mobile phones and brands the easiest route to a consumer who is out and about. At the same time Tapit by-passes traditional painful methods of getting content such as searching, downloading an application, scanning a QR code or thumb typing a URL. Tapit enables everyday objects and environments with Near Field Communications (NFC) technology so that all people have to do is tap their mobile phone on objects of interest to get content on their mobile phone. It's a truly magical experience, because it is effortless, useful and feels futuristic.

"This is an excellent validation of the Tapit ecosystem and we thank AIMIA. Tapit is disrupting and enhancing a number of sectors such as OOH advertising, Tourism, Retail and Transport through its simplicity and mass market appeal. We are starting to change the urban fabric " said Tapit CEO and co-founder Jamie Conyngham. "This award shows you that a mobile service like Tapit can be better than a mobile application, you don't always need an app and it's easier for people if you don't have to download one".

IoT & Smart Cities Stories
The deluge of IoT sensor data collected from connected devices and the powerful AI required to make that data actionable are giving rise to a hybrid ecosystem in which cloud, on-prem and edge processes become interweaved. Attendees will learn how emerging composable infrastructure solutions deliver the adaptive architecture needed to manage this new data reality. Machine learning algorithms can better anticipate data storms and automate resources to support surges, including fully scalable GPU-c...
Machine learning has taken residence at our cities' cores and now we can finally have "smart cities." Cities are a collection of buildings made to provide the structure and safety necessary for people to function, create and survive. Buildings are a pool of ever-changing performance data from large automated systems such as heating and cooling to the people that live and work within them. Through machine learning, buildings can optimize performance, reduce costs, and improve occupant comfort by ...
The explosion of new web/cloud/IoT-based applications and the data they generate are transforming our world right before our eyes. In this rush to adopt these new technologies, organizations are often ignoring fundamental questions concerning who owns the data and failing to ask for permission to conduct invasive surveillance of their customers. Organizations that are not transparent about how their systems gather data telemetry without offering shared data ownership risk product rejection, regu...

Enterprises have taken advantage of IoT to achieve important revenue and cost advantages. What is less apparent is how incumbent enterprises operating at scale have, following success with IoT, built analytic, operations management and software development capabilities - ranging from autonomous vehicles to manageable robotics installations. They have embraced these capabilities as if they were Silicon Valley startups.
As IoT continues to increase momentum, so does the associated risk. Secure Device Lifecycle Management (DLM) is ranked as one of the most important technology areas of IoT. Driving this trend is the realization that secure support for IoT devices provides companies the ability to deliver high-quality, reliable, secure offerings faster, create new revenue streams, and reduce support costs, all while building a competitive advantage in their markets.
