Innovations & Disruptions through Mobile
Mobile broadband revolution has been jump started by the entry of new telecom operators, conclusion of one of the largest spectrum auctions, and the continued hyper growth in the mobile start-up space. Bengaluru continues to be in the top 20 in the Global Start-up Ecosystem Ranking, thanks to the continued disruption by the start-ups. The mobile broadband penetration continues to increase and is more than 125 million now with expected exponential adoption this year. Mobile Apps are being integrated into many traditional activities ranging from grocery shopping to calling a cab, a trend that is rapidly spilling revenue from almost every industry in the higher revenue traditional economy into the app economy. It is expected that the spill-overs are greater in emerging countries such as India where there are substantial inefficiencies in the traditional industries. There is intense competition in the sector and innovation is the key for survival.
In this edition of Mobile India, we will explore the innovation and disruptions caused by the mobile ecosystem in areas ranging from mobile authentication and security, mobile data analytics and privacy, mobile payments.
