Mobile Internet will become the "Hero" that saves the Indonesian Telco in 2013, Finds Frost & Sullivan

~ Cheaper smartphones and Social Network adoption will be the key growth drivers

JAKARTA, Indonesia, Feb. 13, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Frost & Sullivan projects mobile internet will become the "hero" that saves the Indonesian telco in 2013 as it will open the new horizon beyond the data communication segment. The "mobile internet fever" will contribute to the growth of the country's telecom industry and benefit the players. Helping to drive the growth are cheaper smartphone prices and rapid social network adoption in the country.

Dev Yusmananda, Head of Consulting ICT Practice - Indonesia, Frost & Sullivan explained as the market gets competitive, telecom players need to transform to maintain its growth. Thus, value added mobile data services started to become the important source of revenue growth for operators in Indonesia.

He added that mobile internet will continue to be the enabler of strong internet penetration in Indonesia and create potential income windows for telecom players by participating in mobile monetization. 

"The main four windows to go beyond just data segment are mobilization (a trend where devices, softwares and services are starting to adapt and incorporate smartphone-like features and capabilities); Mobile payment; Mobile e-commerce; and mobile advertising," said Dev.

With the increasing of mobile internet, Frost & Sullivan sees wireless internet devices growing significantly. Dev explained that wireless dongle is expected to grow at 47.5% CAGR, smartphones at 16.1% CAGR and tablets at 11.6% CAGR, by 2013.

Meanwhile globally, Nitin Bhat, Partner, Frost & Sullivan pointed out smartphone shipments are growing rapidly and projected to reach 1 billion by 2016. Asia Pacific is likely to be the fastest growing region for smartphone shipments, reaching 37.6% in the same period.

In 2015, Asia Pacific will be the biggest region for Mobile Payments with Japan and South Korea to lead the Asia-Pacific region in m-payments adoption.

"However, mobile payments services in Japan are largely operator driven where financial institutions involvement remains partial," Nitin concluded.

Every innovation or invention was originally a daydream. You like to imagine a “what-if” scenario. And with all the attention being paid to the so-called Internet of Things (IoT) you don’t have to stretch the imagination too much to see how this may impact commercial and homeowners insurance. We’re beyond the point of accepting this as a leap of faith. The groundwork is laid. Now it’s just a matter of time. We can thank the inventors of smart thermostats for developing a practical business application that everyone can relate to. Gone are the salad days of smart home apps, the early chalkb...
Cloud data governance was previously an avoided function when cloud deployments were relatively small. With the rapid adoption in public cloud – both rogue and sanctioned, it’s not uncommon to find regulated data dumped into public cloud and unprotected. This is why enterprises and cloud providers alike need to embrace a cloud data governance function and map policies, processes and technology controls accordingly. In her session at 15th Cloud Expo, Evelyn de Souza, Data Privacy and Compliance Strategy Leader at Cisco Systems, will focus on how to set up a cloud data governance program and s...

We certainly live in interesting technological times. And no more interesting than the current competing IoT standards for connectivity. Various standards bodies, approaches, and ecosystems are vying for mindshare and positioning for a competitive edge. It is clear that when the dust settles, we will have new protocols, evolved protocols, that will change the way we interact with devices and infrastructure. We will also have evolved web protocols, like HTTP/2, that will be changing the very core of our infrastructures. At the same time, we have old approaches made new again like micro-services...
Operational Hadoop and the Lambda Architecture for Streaming Data Apache Hadoop is emerging as a distributed platform for handling large and fast incoming streams of data. Predictive maintenance, supply chain optimization, and Internet-of-Things analysis are examples where Hadoop provides the scalable storage, processing, and analytics platform to gain meaningful insights from granular data that is typically only valuable from a large-scale, aggregate view. One architecture useful for capturing and analyzing streaming data is the Lambda Architecture, representing a model of how to analyze rea...
