Re: What is the IW Pick Badge?
@Laurianne    Thanks for the explanation of just what the IWpick is.      I like the idea, but it looses some of it's luster if a person can like their own comment.   (Thanks for pointing this out Rich.)

SAP Real-Time In Real- Time
Kudos to Brazil and SAP for finding an innovative way to address a very difficult issue.   I think SAP is on the right road in their thinking.   Their goal is to be "real-time in real-time".   I encourage everyone to check out the link furnished by Curtis ( thank you Curtis).

The first video will give you an idea of just what SAP's overall business goal is in this area.

Re: Everything is mobile now
@batye: are you using anything yet that is served by IoT? Wearable technology? M2M to monitor your power usage? If so, I'm curious to know what your experience has been.

I have not used wearables though our power and water usage is monitoring remotely now (no more meter readers coming to the house every month).

Re: Everything is mobile now
@Curt: While your point is well taken, I wonder what the smartphone penetration is for less-privileged regions of our country. Or, among the elderly population. Something like a text-based solution that you're talking about here could work if the goal is to be as egalatarian as possible to reach all members of society.

I fear the digital divide in the US is becming greater every year, and the digital/mobile have-nots are going to miss out on many important services and, even, job opportunities because of economic hardship.

Re: Everything is mobile now
@ Curt.  The key is finding out which solution and technology fits better with the unique business problems in a country.  Smartphones and apps may not work for everyone.  I agree that finding out the best user experience for a wide variety of people is a huge challenge; the same with market research, different age group have various challenges.

The Business of Going Digital

It's about bringing big data analytics, mobile, social, marketing automation, cloud computing, and the app economy together to launch new products and services. We're seeing new titles in this digital revolution, new responsibilities, new business models, and major shifts in technology spending.
