IoT Myths Debunked
Everyone loves a good myth. But sometimes myths get in the way of solving problems and unfortunately in the technology world, this can mean wasted time, money and resources.
The Internet of Things (IoT) buzzword is everywhere, as it should be. The IoT market is expected to grow from USD 170.57 Billion in 2017 to USD 561.04 Billion by 2022, according to the June 2017 MarketsandMarkets research report, Internet of Things (IoT) Market by Software Solution Platform, Application Area, and Region .
The problem is that these Internet ‘things’ have myths surrounding them, some of which are impacting how organizations develop the applications that support their businesses -- It’s time we bust these myths.
Solving Problem Apps
Consumers' demand for apps is mounting. However businesses hurry the app development process, lack a strategy behind why they are building an app, or don't test the app enough. The app goes to market, gets a ton of bad reviews from users, and is not a success. We call these 'problem apps'.
As we depend more and more on the internet, relying on legacy technology and trusting in traditional integration patterns won't cut it in today's app economy. The world of "traditional IT" has come to an end.
Push Internet Messaging and Oracle Event Processing
Today's data is constantly in motion, traveling in and out of databases, to and from connected devices, and across continents, all in less than a blink of an eye. This evolution of real-time data requirements represents a huge opportunity for app providers because it can power everything from critical health monitoring to in-game betting, as well as many new and growing use cases for the Internet of Things.
But capturing the value of real-time data in a mobile app is proving to be quite a challenge for developers.
In this paper we show how Push Technology's Internet Messaging technology, integrates with Oracle Event Processing (OEP) and Oracle Stream Explorer to deliver a real-time system for data analysis.

Six Mobile Data Challenges
Mobile Data movement is changing the way business is done as we seek to collect more data and analyse it to make better informed commercial decisions. But how exactly do you make smart decisions if the information you receive is not in real-time, not the right content and not available on the device, platform or application you are using?
The Second Screen Revenue Opportunity
Regardless of whether you work on the business side or the development side, the above points should resonate. Organizations require a way to ease the pain of meeting consumer demand on the second screen. This includes the technology to supply an efficient, scalable, instant and high performing data distribution strategy to resolve the limitations of second screen.
Instant Data Gratification
Web and mobile application technology has given rise to a new breed of customer – the constantly connected consumer, who is by definition better connected, more aware and technologically savvy. Businesses that are more astute will already have strategies in place to reach these customers. Others are still playing catch up and quickly realizing that there is no “one size fits all” solution.
Mobile Financial Apps
Mobile has transformed the financial services industry – it has reinvented banking, revolutionized communications with customers and increased the expectations that organizations can deliver instant information. Similar to the industrial revolution, we now face changes that are transforming our way of life. The financial services industry must quickly react to this and create apps that help to generate revenues and increase loyalty; otherwise they will negatively impact the business.
Mobile Data Distribution Tips
For organizations that depend on live data for their business within financial services, eGaming, utilities or transportation and logistics, achieving application e!iciency and e!ective data distribution while minimizing the hardware costs associated with making ‘it all happen’ are the foundation to achieving commercially successful and competitive web and mobile applications.
Solving App Performance
Mobile devices have become as essential as house keys and wallets, in some cases even replacing them. This reliance on mobility, however, causes a new set of challenges for mobile application providers. End users are impatient, they want apps to perform at desktop or even real-time speeds. If an application does not, there are millions of other apps available to take its place.
Financial Services Mobile Revolution
Financial services encompass a broad range of organizations. For the purpose of this white paper, we define financial services organizations as credit unions, banks, credit card companies, insurance companies, consumer finance companies, broker/dealers, investment managers and hedge funds. This white paper highlights many of the shared challenges these di erent organizations face as they embrace the communication age to deliver financial services on mobile devices.
Diffusion 5.0 Performance Whitepaper
Diffusion 5.0 (Diffusion) from Push Technology employs the opposite approach. Data is pushed out to mobile applications, as it changes, in a highly scalable and efficient manner. Only the data that actually changes is sent and attention is paid to the capabilities of the mobile devices running the Web application and the networks over which the data is sent, to ensure the best possible performance to every end user.
15 Do's and Don'ts of App Development
You might already have a mobile or web application or you might be starting from scratch. Either way, once in the mobile and web application game you are constantly in a battle for improvement. Your business, no matter the industry or if it’s B2C or B2B, will benefit from a functionality-rich performance application. It might be gained revenue, increased productivity or improved brand loyalty. Whatever the benefit to your organization, the rewards are worth it.
Are you developing reactive apps?
If you want to deliver rich, real-time experiences - on mobile platforms - you need to think about the data optimization, responding to the network, going reactive in the way that you've developed applications and using contextual information to enrich those reactive experiences.
Mobile Development Models
Every business wants to provide services to their customers, wherever they are and whatever they are doing. Some do this through their website; others by using a mobile app. The challenge is that there is a multitude of different devices used by customers. So which devices should the app be supported on? Can all be supported? Are there features on some devices that could be used to make the app more engaging? Do we have the right skill sets in-house to develop an app that can be supported on all these different platforms?
