Bedrijven riskeren vervreemding van klanten met beperkte mobiele webstrategieën

LONDEN, December 12, 2012 /PRNewswire/ --

Driemaandelijkse Metrics Report van Netbiscuits onthult dat, ook al ontwerpen bedrijven voor de top 10 meest gebruikte mobiele apparaten, ze nog steeds slechts 56% van wereldwijde verkeersaandeel in beslag nemen

  • Meer webverkeer is afkomstig van functionele telefoons dan van tablets in 7 van de 8 markten*
  •  6 Blackberry-apparaten staan in de top 25 meest gebruikte apparaten  
  • Kindle Fire een van de top 25 apparaten voor mobiel surfen op het web in Noord-Amerika

Netbiscuits, de wereldwijde marktleider in softwareoplossingen voor adaptieve webontwikkeling, heeft vandaag bekendgemaakt dat een aantal bedrijven hun klanten mogelijk een slechte mobiele webervaring biedt. Deze bedrijven verliezen zo hun klanten aan concurrenten als ze geen mobiele strategieën opbouwen die gericht zijn op de veranderende webtoegangspatronen of de vele verschillende apparaten die mensen gebruiken. Het driemaandelijkse Metrics Report van Netbiscuits onthult dat, ook al ontwerpen bedrijven voor de top 10 meest gebruikte mobiele apparaten, ze nog steeds slechts 56% van het wereldwijde verkeersaandeel in beslag nemen.

De gewoonten van mobiele webgebruikers veranderen, en websites worden geopend via apparaten die zelden worden opgenomen in de mobiele strategieën van bedrijven. In 7 van de 8 onderzochte regionale markten is het meeste webverkeer nog steeds afkomstig van functionele telefoons in plaats van van tablets. Dit is essentieel voor mobiele bedrijfsstrategieën waarbij er vaak van uitgegaan wordt dat de pc-websites op tablets worden bekeken. Op zichzelf is dit ook een beperkte strategie door het negeren van functies zoals touch en GPS-functionaliteit.

Het dalende gebruik van Blackberry-apparaten heeft ertoe geleid dat sommige bedrijven ermee opgehouden zijn hun webervaring voor deze smartphones te optimaliseren. Uit het Metrics Report blijkt echter dat, hoewel dalende, zes Blackberry-apparaten zich nog steeds onder de top 25 apparaten bevinden op basis van het wereldwijde verkeersaandeel, met de Blackberry 8520 op de vijfde plaats.  

"Tenzij bedrijven de veranderende trends in de manier waarop mensen het internet opgaan omarmen, is het mogelijk dat ze het grootste deel van hun klanten laten zitten met een langzame, beperkte of zelfs irrelevant ervaring, en uiteindelijk klanten verliezen aan concurrenten met betere, boeiendere ervaringen," aldus Daniel Weisbeck, CMO, Netbiscuits. "Bedrijven moeten ervoor zorgen dat hun webapp of website wordt aangepast voor een superieure en op maat gemaakte webervaring op alle apparaten, browsers en functies als ze de grootste kans willen hebben om hun klanten te boeien en te behouden in een sterk concurrerende economie. Dit is een gebied waar responsief ontwerp nooit genoeg is.  Responsief ontwerp helpt bedrijven niet om de ervaring aan te passen door middel van bijvoorbeeld een snellere beeldconversie, GPS en touchfuncties."

Het Metrics Report maakt ook de top apparaatcategorieën op basis van wereldwijd webverkeer bekend. De iPhone 3G, 3GS, 4, 4S staat bovenaan de lijst met 31% van het wereldwijde verkeersaandeel, gevolgd door de Samsung GT-I9100 (Galaxy S2, Galaxy Z) met 6% aandeel en de Samsung GT-I9300 op de derde plaats met 4%.

Het cloud-gebaseerde adaptieve webontwikkelingsplatform van Netbiscuits stelt bedrijven in staat om snel en eenvoudig rijke mobiele webervaringen te creëren die aangepast worden aan elk mobiel apparaat, ongeacht het wereldwijde verkeersaandeel ervan.

Over het Metrics Report

Het Metrics Report is gebaseerd op een analyse van het wereldwijde webverkeer over het Netbiscuits Platform in oktober 2012. Regionale* markten bijgehouden in dit rapport omvatten Azië-Pacific, Oost-Europa, het Midden-Oosten en Noord-Afrika, Noord-Amerika, Midden- en Zuid-Amerika, Sub-Saharisch Afrika en West-Europa.  Om het rapport volledig te lezen kunt u terecht op http://www.netbiscuits.com/mobile-web-metrics-report-2012

Over the last few years the healthcare ecosystem has revolved around innovations in Electronic Health Record (HER) based systems. This evolution has helped us achieve much desired interoperability. Now the focus is shifting to other equally important aspects – scalability and performance. While applying cloud computing environments to the EHR systems, a special consideration needs to be given to the cloud enablement of Veterans Health Information Systems and Technology Architecture (VistA), i.e., the largest single medical system in the United States.
Cloud and Big Data present unique dilemmas: embracing the benefits of these new technologies while maintaining the security of your organization’s assets. When an outside party owns, controls and manages your infrastructure and computational resources, how can you be assured that sensitive data remains private and secure?

In his session at 15th Cloud Expo, Derek Tumulak, Vice President of Product Management at Vormetric, will discuss how to address data security in cloud and Big Data environments so that your organization isn’t next week’s data breach headline.
Scott Jenson leads a project called The Physical Web within the Chrome team at Google. Project members are working to take the scalability and openness of the web and use it to talk to the exponentially exploding range of smart devices. Nearly every company today working on the IoT comes up with the same basic solution: use my server and you'll be fine. But if we really believe there will be trillions of these devices, that just can't scale. We need a system that is open a scalable and by using the URL as a basic building block, we open this up and get the same resilience that the web enjoys.

Most of today’s hardware manufacturers are building servers with at least one SATA Port, but not every systems engineer utilizes them. This is considered a loss in the game of maximizing potential storage space in a fixed unit. The SATADOM Series was created by Innodisk as a high-performance, small form factor boot drive with low power consumption to be plugged into the unused SATA port on your server board as an alternative to hard drive or USB boot-up. Built for 1U systems, this powerful device is smaller than a one dollar coin, and frees up otherwise dead space on your motherboard. To meet the requirements of tomorrow’s cloud hardware, Innodisk invested internal R&D resources to develop our SATA III series of products. The SATA III SATADOM boasts 500/180MBs R/W Speeds respectively, or double R/W Speed of SATA II products.
