Unlocking The Tremendous Possibilities Of Audience Data

I don’t think it’s news to anyone that there is more readily-available audience data than ever before.
“From the dawn of civilization until 2003, humankind generated five exabytes of data. Now we produce five exabytes every two days… and the pace is accelerating.” – Eric Schmidt, Executive Chairman, Google
In fact, according to Rick Smolan and Jennifer Erwitt in the book, The Human Face of Big Data, the average person today processes more data in a single day than a person in the 1500s did in an entire lifetime. In the world of advertising, this data comes from many sources, including online browsing behavior and countless offline sources.

Vodafone Launches New Developer Platform, Allows Apps To Integrate Operator Billing Easily

Due to fierce smartphone growth across the world, and especially in India, development of mobile apps and games has gone mainstream. We have now arrived at a scenario, where every major web application is available on mobile as well in form of an app. Infact, given the features smartphones offer, the app eco-system has expanded much beyond that! App stores from iOS and Android have millions of app available for their phones.
But one issue has constantly plagued mobile app developers in country like India – It is the mobile payment mechanism.
