At Apps World 2014, Airpush Featured on High-Level Panel Exploring Monetization Strategies for Mobile App Developers

“Show me the monetization.”

That could well be the call to action for Thursday afternoon’s panel at Apps World North America 2014, “Monetization as a Foundation for Developer Businesses.” Prominent on that panel will be Tan Tmangraksat, VP of Publisher Solutions, Airpush (www.airpush.com), a leading mobile ad platform. The company is exhibiting in Booth #101, at Moscone Center West.

Airpush’s appearance at Apps World follows closely on the heels of two watershed developments for the company: the news last week that Forbes has placed Airpush second on its 2014 list of “America’s 100 Most Promising Companies,” and this week’s announcement of a partnership with OpenX (www.openx.com), one of the world’s leading providers of digital and mobile advertising technology, to launch AirX, a major new private mobile ad exchange.

     

WHAT:

At Apps World North America 2014, members of the media are invited to attend a lively panel discussion on how industry leaders are exploring emerging trends to help drive new revenues, usage and engagement of mobile developers. Among the themes:

 

● Monetization strategies: in-app purchase, virtual currencies, freemium, ad-supported, and premium sponsorships

● How to increase your cart conversion, revealing the secrets

● Exploring different ways to enhance the revenue potential of both paid and freemium apps, tapping new revenue sources

● How to leverage an API sharing community portal to drive new revenues, usage, and engagement of mobile developers

 
AppsWorld North America 2014 features two days of engagement and discussion around the rapidly-growing mobile apps industry. The developer conference and exhibition takes place at San Francisco’s Moscone Center West, Feb. 5-6. With more than 8000 developers, mobile marketers, mobile operators, device manufacturers, platform owners and industry professionals, the conference features keynotes, targeted workshop tracks, 1-on-1 meetings, networking parties and more -- all tackling a spectrum of issues across the app ecosystem. The event also includes free developer workshop tracks and an exhibition with 250+ exhibitors.

Connected devices and the Internet of Things are getting significant momentum in 2014. In his session at Internet of @ThingsExpo, Jim Hunter, Chief Scientist & Technology Evangelist at Greenwave Systems, examined three key elements that together will drive mass adoption of the IoT before the end of 2015. The first element is the recent advent of robust open source protocols (like AllJoyn and WebRTC) that facilitate M2M communication. The second is broad availability of flexible, cost-effective ...
Collecting data in the field and configuring multitudes of unique devices is a time-consuming, labor-intensive process that can stretch IT resources. Horan & Bird [H&B], Australia’s fifth-largest Solar Panel Installer, wanted to automate sensor data collection and monitoring from its solar panels and integrate the data with its business and marketing systems. After data was collected and structured, two major areas needed to be addressed: improving developer workflows and extending access to a b...
When an enterprise builds a hybrid IaaS cloud connecting its data center to one or more public clouds, security is often a major topic along with the other challenges involved. Security is closely intertwined with the networking choices made for the hybrid cloud. Traditional networking approaches for building a hybrid cloud try to kludge together the enterprise infrastructure with the public cloud. Consequently this approach requires risky, deep "surgery" including changes to firewalls, subnets...

The true value of the Internet of Things (IoT) lies not just in the data, but through the services that protect the data, perform the analysis and present findings in a usable way. With many IoT elements rooted in traditional IT components, Big Data and IoT isn’t just a play for enterprise. In fact, the IoT presents SMBs with the prospect of launching entirely new activities and exploring innovative areas. CompTIA research identifies several areas where IoT is expected to have the greatest impac...
2015 predictions circa 1970: houses anticipate our needs and adapt, city infrastructure is citizen and situation aware, office buildings identify and preprocess you.

Container technology is sending shock waves through the world of cloud computing. Heralded as the 'next big thing,' containers provide software owners a consistent way to package their software and dependencies while infrastructure operators benefit from a standard way to deploy and run them. Containers present new challenges for tracking usage due to their dynamic nature. They can also be deployed to bare metal, virtual machines and various cloud platforms. How do software owners track the usag...

There is no question that businesses successful in adopting a DevOps mindset have seen departmental culture change, ...
