Action Engine Reports Outstanding Growth in 2008 for Mobile Applications for Major Media Brands

Action Engine Launches Mobile Applications for AOL, MSNBC.com, TiVo, Sports Illustrated, The Wall Street Journal Digital Netwo

Action Engine® Corporation, The On-Device Portal Company™ (ODP), today announced that it has launched more mobile applications for major media brands than any other on-device portal company in 2008. The company’s recent deployments include the following mobile applications and on-device portals currently available to mobile consumers:

“It is clear that the big brands are viewing mobile applications as the future and Action Engine as the company to take them there,” said Scott G. Silk, president and CEO of Action Engine. “Companies, like Apple and Google, have recently placed their strategic bets on the mobile applications market and that has created a new excitement around developing and deploying downloadable services. Mobile consumers are going to benefit from this surge with a tremendous variety of new services and content to download and enjoy on their phones.”

Many of the applications and on-device portals Action Engine develops for their customers on their Mobile Application Platform (MAP) have banner advertisements displayed throughout them. Collectively, Action Engine customers, including AOL, MSNBC.com, Dow Jones, and Sports Illustrated, have delivered ads to millions of consumers via on-device portals and mobile applications in the last year. The milestone illustrates adoption of Action Engine’s ad-enabled mobile application products, a growing trend towards in-application mobile advertising, and growth in the mobile advertising sector overall.

“I believe that custom applications yield the best user experience in mobile,” said J. Gerry Purdy, VP and Chief Analyst, Mobile & Wireless, Frost and Sullivan, in his July newsletter. “Due to the launch of the Apple App Store and richer operating environments in a larger number of phones, custom applications will become dominant on phones over the coming five years. It won’t be long until you’ll scout out the applications that you want on the Web and designate them to be downloaded to your phone. That process is going to greatly enhance the value of the wireless handset for all of us.”

Action Engine forecasts continued growth for their mobile application and advertising products in the second half of 2008. The company’s products are addressing more handsets than ever before with support for Java, Windows Mobile, BREW, and Blackberry devices. This year Action Engine also became the first on-device portal company to support social networking features including instant messaging and user generated content within their applications. As a result, the company has two new social networking applications scheduled to launch with major brands later this year with continued mobile application and on-device portal deployments planned into 2009.

The challenges of aggregating data from consumer-oriented devices, such as wearable technologies and smart thermostats, are fairly well-understood. However, there are a new set of challenges for IoT devices that generate megabytes or gigabytes of data per second. Certainly, the infrastructure will have to change, as those volumes of data will likely overwhelm the available bandwidth for aggregating the data into a central repository.

Cell networks have the advantage of long-range communications, reaching an estimated 90% of the world. But cell networks such as 2G, 3G and LTE consume lots of power and were designed for connecting people.

Cell IoT modules that support narrow-band IoT and 4G cell networks will enable cell connectivity, device management, and app enablement for low-power wide-area network IoT. B...

When talking IoT we often focus on the devices, the sensors, the hardware itself. The new smart appliances, the new smart or self-driving cars (which are amalgamations of many ‘things'). When we are looking at the world of IoT, we should take a step back, look at the big picture. What value are these devices providing. IoT is not about the devices, its about the data consumed and generated. The devices are tools, mechanisms, conduits. This paper discusses the considerations when dealing with the...
