Credete che la “digitalizzazione” sia solo una moda passeggera?

Vi ricordate che poco più di 10 anni fa non esistevano gli smartphone, i tablet e le Apps?

Usavamo telefonini Nokia, BlackBerry o Motorola: società’ ormai pressoché scomparse dal mercato. Cosi come e’ avvenuto alle videoteche Blockbuster con l’avvento dei film in digitale.

Il futuro sara’ sempre più “distruttivo” rispetto agli attuali stili di vita e di conseguenza cambieranno ancora di piu’ le professioni richieste dal mercato del lavoro, cioe’ cosa dovranno sapere fare i nostri figli.

Che piaccia o no, bisogna abituarsi all’idea, prepararsi a viverla e munirsi (soprattutto i ragazzi) delle competenze necessarie per saper gestire una societa’ in veloce cambiamento per esserne attori/promotori e non esserne travolti!

Mobile Telco: is it time for CTRL+ALT+DEL?

Telefonia mobile, un utente su 2 vorrebbe Google, Apple o Facebook come gestore: «Insoddisfatti dell’attuale customer experience»

Secondo i consumatori, gli operatori tradizionali investono troppo poco nei canali digitali (siti web, app mobili e social media), e solo l’8% ritiene i negozi fisici indispensabili, dice un report di Capgemini Consulting. «Emerge una correlazione tra uso dei canali digitali, livello di soddifazione, e crescita del fatturato»

Il report di Capgemini Consulting: “Unlocking customer satisfaction: why digital holds the key for telcos

“… rivela che quasi la metà (44%) degli utenti mobili passerebbe a Google, Apple o Facebook, se questi colossi introducessero un servizio di comunicazione mobile, per la “miglior qualità del servizio” (48%) e per la “esperienza più personalizzata” (23%) che essi potrebbero garantire rispetto all’attuale gestore telefonico.

[…]

«Ciò che i consumatori si aspettano dai fornitori di servizi di telecomunicazioni è cambiato, ma molti operatori non sono ancora pienamente in grado di soddisfare le richieste, con conseguente calo del livello di customer satisfaction, spiega Eraldo Federici, Senior Vice President, Market Unit Head, TME & Large Accounts di Capgemini Italia, in un articolo su CorCom. «La lenta diffusione dei servizi digitali costituisce il cuore del problema, e questo è un pesante richiamo agli operatori affinché accelerino gli sforzi di trasformazione in un’ottica digitale o si tengano pronti a rischiare uno sconvolgimento a opera dei gestori solo digitali”

McKinsey: nel 2025 l’Internet of Things può valere l’11% dell’economia mondiale

McKinsey stima che da qui al 2025 il mercato globale dell’Internet of Things potrebbe valere dai 3.900 agli 11.100 miliardi di dollari all’anno. Nella migliore delle ipotesi, si parla dell’11% dell’intera economia mondiale. Ma per arrivare a questa migliore ipotesi occorre costruire contesti, tecnologie e modelli di business che, al di là dell’entusiasmo e delle aspettative con cui ora si guarda al fenomeno, lo trasformino in una solida realtà.

How Google breaks through – via McKinsey Insight

Lorraine Twohill, Google’s senior vice president of global marketing:

The way I think about marketing—and the way I tend to talk to my team about it—is “knowing the user, knowing the magic, and connecting the two.”

Knowing the user means understanding who your consumers are, who your customers are. Not just knowing who they are, but what they need, what are their deep insights, and understanding how we can help them.

Knowing the magic means knowing what’s in the hearts and minds of your engineers and your product managers, and what they’re building.

Connecting the two means bringing the magic built by engineers to the world in a way that is relevant, meaningful, and compelling to the everyday consumer.

So we create something that the world will be excited about.

This Drone Can Save Lives And Fly Indoors Without Crashing Constantly – via Techcrunch

Surrounding the GimBall’s drone core is a spherical cage which serves three purposes: letting it roll along the wall or ceiling, keeping the device’s propellers away from your skin, and absorbing shock to keep the device in the air.

Google’s Project Ara pilot will be launched in Puerto Rico later this year

Another great innovation which will revolutionize the traditional concept of the “Mobile Phone”.

Before 2007 the Mobile phone was static: its features embedded by manufacturers and few software capabilities upgraded  on yearly basis!

Then the revolution of the Apps world made services provided by smartphone fully dynamic and fitting at any time any user needs with just a click : “There is even an app for that”!, so they say.

Now, the only part of the Smartphone which was supposed to stay the same for entire smartphone’s lifetime, the hardware, is going to be replaceable, configurable at any time … soon we may say “There even a module for that!”

Google’s Project Ara phone looks like it could be REALLY customizable.
