SAN FRANCISCO, CALIF. AND COLOGNE, GERMANY - MAY 17, 2013 — To help organizations and developers succeed in this new App Economy Peggy Anne Salz, author, analyst and mobile authority, and Jennifer Shambroom, top-producing marketing executive, have joined to produce The Everything Guide To Mobile Apps: A practical guide to affordable mobile app development for your business (F+W Media Inc.). The comprehensive guide, which is now available as an eBook through Amazon online book stores, provides brands and businesses with clear direction and critical information to enhance and extend the lifecycle of their mobile app.

Because producing a profitable mobile app requires companies to be experts in a wide variety of areas — ranging from app design and discovery, to app maintenance and mobile advertising — The Everything Guide To Mobile Apps has brought together the insights of more than 25 mobile professionals, practitioners and pundits to identify market trends, best practices and key lessons learned in developing, distributing and promoting mobile apps.

With mobile app downloads pegged to reach a whopping 81 billion by end-2013 according to eMarketer, the pressure is on companies to tackle the business and technology challenges of making and marketing a winning app.

"In an ideal world, an organization hoping to succeed in the new App Economy would have their own personal expert to guide them through the complexities and intricacies of designing, producing, and marketing a high-quality, professional, robust and usable app," observes Jez Harper, CEO of Tús Nua Designs, an Irish app development business, and a chief contributor to the Guide.

"Companies don't have that luxury, but they also don't miss it since The Everything Guide to Mobile Apps draws on the knowledge and experience of the authors, as well as the world's leading experts in the app arena, to package everything you'll need to know in order to turn a mobile app into a serious business."

"Even first-time app developers instinctively know it's no longer 'enough' just to develop a great mobile app," said social marketing authority and mobile startup advisor Ken Herron, the marketing contributor to the Guide. "To meet your download goals, it's critical to effectively use social media to build and engage your community of brand fans, and the Guide shows you how."

IoT solutions exploit operational data generated by Internet-connected smart “things” for the purpose of gaining operational insight and producing “better outcomes” (for example, create new business models, eliminate unscheduled maintenance, etc.).

The constant pressure to provide complete, omnichannel delivery of customer-facing solutions to meet both regulatory and customer demands is putting enormous pressure on...

IoT is at the core or many Digital Transformation initiatives with the goal of re-inventing a company's business model. We all agree that collecting relevant IoT data will result in massive amounts of data needing to be stored. However, with the rapid development of IoT devices and ongoing business model transformation, we are not able to predict the volume and growth of IoT data. And with the lack of IoT history, traditional methods of IT and infrastructure planning based on the past do not app...

IoT is rapidly becoming mainstream as more and more investments are made into the platforms and technology. As this movement continues to expand and gain momentum it creates a massive wall of noise that can be difficult to sift through. Unfortunately, this inevitably makes IoT less approachable for people to get started with and can hamper efforts to integrate this key technology into your own portfolio. There are so many connected products already in place today with many hundreds more on the h...
More and more brands have jumped on the IoT bandwagon. We have an excess of wearables – activity trackers, smartwatches, smart glasses and sneakers, and more that track seemingly endless datapoints. However, most consumers have no idea what “IoT” means. Creating more wearables that track data shouldn't be the aim of brands; delivering meaningful, tangible relevance to their users should be. We're in a period in which the IoT pendulum is still swinging. Initially, it swung toward "smart for smart...

The Jevons Paradox suggests that when technological advances increase efficiency of a resource, it results in an overall increase in consumption.
