Research and Markets: Europe Mobile and M-Commerce Report 2012

Research and Markets (http://www.researchandmarkets.com/research/vwnxjr/europe_mobile_and) has announced the addition of the "Europe Mobile and M-Commerce Report 2012" report to their offering.

According to forecasts, approximately one third of all smartphone users in Europe will use their devices to conduct purchases within the next years. M-Commerce will then account for approximately five percent of all retail business. Figures on how many consumers make mobile purchases vary largely across Europe. In the three months leading up to July 2012, approximately 20 percent of all smartphone users in the UK conducted purchases via their mobile phones. In March 2012, ten percent of all mobile phone users in France claimed to have previously made at least one mobile purchase.

Many more indicated that they plan to do so in future. Two thirds of all Belgian online shoppers said in 2012 that they did not intend to conduct purchases via mobile devices. In Italy, the ticketing market is especially benefiting from M-Commerce. 60 percent of all Italians have expressed interest in using mobile devices for this purpose. By 2015, this sector is expected to be worth more than 200 million dollars. M-Commerce is also popular in Spain. 60 percent of all tablet PC users and one third of all smartphone users ordered something with their mobile devices in June 2012.

In Germany, individuals aged 14 to 28 account for most purchases via mobile devices. The share of mobile shoppers increased in 2011 to more than ten percent. Compared to 2011, the number of unique visitors to Otto Group in Germany among consumers who used mobile devices tripled in spring and summer 2012. Between May 2011 and April 2012, in Austria only a single digit percentage figure of smartphone users ordered something via their mobile devices. In 2012, orders via mobile devices increased in Switzerland, with mobile websites being more significant there than apps.

This report includes detailed information about mobile Internet and M-Commerce for 15 European countries.

Key Findings:

- It is expected that approximately 30% of smartphone users in Europe are going to use their devices to shop online in 2017.

- In 2012, the UK is expected to be the European country with the highest share of mobile sales on total online sales, followed by Sweden.

- The share of mobile shoppers on total consumers in Germany increased to more than 10% in 2011, with the age group 14-28 Years accounting for most mobile shoppers.

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...

Poor data quality and analytics drive down business value. In fact, Gartner estimated that the average financial impact of poor data quality on organizations is $9.7 million per year. But bad data is much more than a cost center. By eroding trust in information, analytics and the business decisions based on these, it is a serious impediment to digital transformation.
Digital Transformation: Preparing Cloud & IoT Security for the Age of Artificial Intelligence. As automation and artificial intelligence (AI) power solution development and delivery, many businesses need to build backend cloud capabilities. Well-poised organizations, marketing smart devices with AI and BlockChain capabilities prepare to refine compliance and regulatory capabilities in 2018. Volumes of health, financial, technical and privacy data, along with tightening compliance requirements by...
Predicting the future has never been more challenging - not because of the lack of data but because of the flood of ungoverned and risk laden information. Microsoft states that 2.5 exabytes of data are created every day. Expectations and reliance on data are being pushed to the limits, as demands around hybrid options continue to grow.

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. In this session, we will use customer use cases...
