Ahead of an exclusive panel at MWC examining the next generation of disruptive content services, Syntonic Co-Founder and CEO Gary Greenbaum here discusses the market opportunities for content solutions that allow consumers to experience the mobile internet beyond their data plan with unrestricted access to apps and content.
Today’s basic data plan is built around ‘megabytes’ and ‘gigabytes’ of data, however, the concept of data is fundamentally abstract and confusing for the consumer.
In this guest post, Founder and Executive Chairman of digi.me Julian Ranger discusses the concept of a trust framework for personal data, along with the potential for use of an internationally recognised symbol such as a kitemark.
The need for a trust framework to ratify who we can safely charge with holding even the most sensitive personal data from every area of our lives is becoming increasingly urgent.
As trust becomes the key consumer differentiator in an ever more data-driven and personalised world, how we identify those who will be good stewards of our digital identities has never been more important.
Tim Barber, VP of Telecommunications & Media Industry at MEF Member ForgeRock discusses the potential of superfast 5G networks to affect the journey to becoming “Identity native” for brands and businesses, and how trust plays an essential role in the transition – as discussed in a new whitepaper, available to download now.
In a previous post I described an Identity Native organization as a company that has understood, either intuitively or by transformational design, that Identity needs to sit at the centre of everything in the digital world.
SMS is the most successful communications platform of all time, connecting billions of people worldwide. Now SMS is 25 years old, Chief Evangelist Oisin Lunny of MEF Member OpenMarket takes a look back at its origins, and the developments that have shaped its phenomenal success.
From presidents to philanthropists, the humble text message has helped connect billions of people worldwide. In the process it’s transformed our work and social lives, and saved countless lives.
SMS can trace its origins back to 1984, when Friedhelm Hillebrand and Bernard Ghillebaert from the GSM Corporation first developed the concept of sending a short message (hence SMS – the short message service) to and from a mobile device. But it wasn’t until 1992, when the first text was sent, that we can say SMS was truly born.
