Mobile Internet Media Usage Analytics Tool

The GSMA and comScore announced the launch of Mobile Media Metrics (MMM), a solution to the challenges of mobile media usage measurement and reporting. Taking anonymous mobile Internet usage data from all five UK mobile operators, the service provides insights into market-specific mobile media consumption.

MMM was designed to deliver actionable reporting tools to the media industry, while respecting the privacy of individual mobile service subscribers. According to comScore, access to transparent measurement is essential in establishing Mobile as a legitimate marketing and advertising medium.

The service is based on anonymized census-level data for mobile Internet usage across all mobile networks, which is then augmented with demographic data that has been collected with the consent of a representative sample of mobile Internet users.

The service provides an aggregated view of mobile Internet usage behavior, enabling market-level analysis of site visitation and engagement metrics -- such as page views, time spent on specific sites, and mobile device types and features.

Based on pre-production data, 16 million people in the UK accessed the Internet from their mobile phones in December 2009, viewing a combined total of 6.7 billion pages and spending an aggregate of 4.8 billion minutes online during the month.

The top 10 sites accounted for 70 percent of both total pages viewed and total time spent online on mobiles during the month.

Mobile Internet usage is accelerating, driven largely by the adoption of smartphones, which are now used by one fifth of the total UK mobile phone service subscriber base, according to comScore.

While smartphone users represent just 29 percent of the UK total mobile Internet audience, they accounted for 47 percent of total page views, and 51 percent of the total time spent online in December 2009.

The service will also be expanded to include Wi-Fi traffic through site-centric measurement of publisher and ad network sites -- using comScore's Media Metrix 360 solution, for a de-duplicated view of the online and mobile Internet.

How a Digital-First CEO Leads Transformation

Some leaders reject the notion that "wait and see" is the best response to disruptive change. Savvy senior executives are already driving digital business transformation throughout their organization in an effort to gain a bold strategic advantage. According to the latest market study by International Data Corp (IDC), Digital-First CEOs plan to drive at least half of their income from digital business products, services, and experiences by 2027 -- that's ahead of the market average of 39 percent. Driven by their response to the COVID-19 pandemic, these business leaders have changed how they think about the relationship between business and technology, and how they approach the next digital transformation era -- from scaling digital technology to guiding a viable digital business. Digital Business Market Development IDC defines digital business as value creation based on technology, which entails: 1) Automated customer-facing processes and internal operations; 2) Provision

Digital Solutions for Industrial & Manufacturing Firms

Executive leaders of fast-moving consumer goods (FMCG) are seeking guidance on how to apply new business technology in their manufacturing operations. CIOs and CTOs are tasked with gaining insight into the best solutions for digital transformation. ABI Research evaluated the impact politics, regulation, the economy, supply chain, ESG, and technology are having on FMCG, pharma, producers of steel, chemicals, pulp and paper -- as well as the mining and oil & gas sectors. Digital Transformation Market Development "Our assessment found that the FMCG sector is under pressure from all sides," says Michael Larner, industrial & manufacturing research director at ABI Research . Securing raw materials is challenging considering lockdowns in China and limited grain supplies from Ukraine. Supply shocks are raising input costs, and operating costs are rising with higher energy costs coupled with the pressure to pay higher wages and work sustainably. "We all hoped that with th

5G Fixed Wireless Access Revenue to Reach $24B

Available Internet access at an affordable cost is essential for everyone to participate in the Global Networked Economy. The deployment of fifth-generation (5G) wireless communications infrastructure is enabling the introduction of lower-cost broadband services in some markets. Fixed Wireless Access (FWA) allows mobile network operators (MNO) to deliver high-speed Internet connections in areas that have either insufficient or no prior wireline broadband access services. It's also used in urban, suburban, and rural areas where fiber optic communication is considered too expensive to install and maintain. With this new technology, MNOs have the potential to provide broadband capability at similar levels to fiber optic networks. Fixed Wireless Access Market Development Therefore, FWA can be used to supplement existing wired broadband Internet service offerings, provide additional broadband capacity, or act as a backup service for home or business applications. Although FWA is well es
