Connected Vehicle Apps will Grow at 34.5 Percent CAGR

The introduction of new applications will give greater meaning to the esoteric concept of mobile machine to machine (M2M) communications. As an example, the number of new cars shipping globally with factory-installed safety and security telematics is expected to grow from 11.5 million in 2013 to 50.8 million in 2018, with a CAGR of 34.5 percent.

"Traditional safety and security telematics services such as eCall, bCall, stolen vehicle tracking, and remote diagnostics continue to be rolled out across the globe. Recent announcements include VW’s Car-Net in the US, GM’s Onstar in Mexico, and a host of domestic and foreign car OEM offers recently having become available in China, said Dominique Bonte," vice president at ABI Research.

However, the high expectations surrounding telematics mandates -- such as the EU eCall, Russia ERA GLONASS, and Brazil CONTRAN stolen vehicle tracking legislation -- have not materialized due to successive delays, mounting uncertainty and criticism on technology choices becoming outdated.

More promising trends include the use of mobile network telematics technology for toll collection and road user charging and the quickly growing insurance telematics market.

While safety telematics services remain a core component of most connected car solutions, car OEMs such as Ford, BMW and Daimler are increasingly looking at ADAS, V2X, and various forms of autonomous driving to add additional levels of active safety functionality by focusing on collision prevention and ultimately aiming at making a zero-accident environment a reality.

Usage Based Insurance is already bridging the gap between passive and active safety via driver behavior monitoring alerts and feedback aimed at reducing driver risk.

At the same time, while connected in-car infotainment is about to become main stream, the need for security protection against cyber-attacks and intrusions becomes ever more critical and will start dominating safety and security telematics in the near future.

Flexible Working: Why Company Culture Matters

The main reasons for the Great Resignation are obsolete leadership, fearful middle managers, and a toxic culture that hinders employee engagement. Perhaps that's why some organizations are still struggling with the consideration and development of a flexible working model.  They're incapable of evolving to a more enlightened approach to work where employees are treated with respect. They're stuck in a bygone era of the 20th-century industrial revolution where 'shareholder value' tops all other values, and where spreadsheets and financial data analysis drives all key decision making. We should not be surprised that 76 percent of human resource (HR) leaders now feel that hybrid work challenges an employee's connection to organizational culture, according to a recent survey by Gartner. A 2022 poll of HR leaders reveals the most challenging aspect of setting their hybrid strategy is adjusting the current organizational culture to support a hybrid workforce. In fact,

Securing Fintech via Mobile User Authentication

The global COVID-19 pandemic accelerated the development and adoption of online digital services, including mobile user authentication services. This led to more Fintech solutions growth at a rapid rate from 2020 to 2022, as companies started to adopt one-touch verification. These services enable CIOs and CTOs to increase the level of security offered to customers who are concerned about online financial transactions. However, there are numerous other industry use cases that require increased security measures to protect sensitive data. According to the latest worldwide market study by Juniper Research, mobile network operators will generate $27 billion from the termination of Short Message Service (SMS) related to multi-factor authentication in 2022 -- that's an increase from $25 billion in 2021. Commercial SMS Apps Market Development Juniper analysts predict this 5 percent growth will be driven by increased pressure on digital service providers to offer highly secure user authent
