Operators worldwide have a massive opportunity to monetize their privacy policy compliant data. But to realize this opportunity, they need a combination of the right technology and go-to-market strategy. Adam will run the Zettics’ Monetization Division, helping operators develop and execute their monetization strategy. These services, when combined with the power of Zettics software, will deliver an end-to-end monetization solution for operators. Adam has deep expertise in all aspects of mobile data in the advertising ecosystem and we are excited to have him join our team,” said Sterling Wilson, President and CEO of Zettics.

Brands, agencies, ad platforms, publishers, researchers and investors around the world are hungry for mobile data to understand consumer behavior and marketing performance. Zettics software harnesses the power of massive samples of operator data to meet these market demands and remain fully compliant with their subscriber privacy policies. I look forward to helping operators unlock the value of their data for the benefit of the entire marketing ecosystem,” said Adam Guy, VP of Monetization at Zettics.

Commenting on the announcement, Sheryl Kingstone, Research Director, Mobile Leadership Strategies at Yankee Group, said, “Operators around the world are facing the challenge of how to best use their data assets to improve their business and also stay relevant as mobile marketing moves OTT. Internally, operators are set up to leverage subscriber analytics in day-to-day marketing, care and network organizations. But externally, data monetization requires a different set of business skills that most operators do not have in house. In order to be successful, operators need the right software solution coupled with the right industry expertise in marketing and sales of mobile data. A turn-key solution for operators is a real need in the market today.”

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 ...

We are reaching the end of the beginning with WebRTC, and real systems using this technology have begun to appear. One challenge that faces every WebRTC deployment (in some form or another) is identity management.

Service providers will w...
How do APIs and IoT relate? The answer is not as simple as merely adding an API on top of a dumb device, but rather about understanding the architectural patterns for implementing an IoT fabric. There are typically two or three trends: Exposing the device to a management framework Exposing that management framework to a business centric logic Exposing that business layer and data to end users. This last trend is the IoT stack, which involves a new shift in the separation of what stuff happe...

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...
