Free Report. TV Delivery Evolution: Hybrid TV, Over The Top (Internet) TV and TV Everywhere (Multi-Screen) TV

Back in September 2012 I published this report “TV Delivery Evolution: Hybrid TV, Over The Top (Internet) TV and TV Everywhere (Multi-Screen) TV.

The Next Generation On Device Portal – Do it or Drop the Service Provider title

The missed opportunity of the ODP (On Device Portal) has been discussed on this weblog several times.  The fact it took Apple to show the industry how to get it right is an embarrassment.  Apple’s iPhone has redefined the relationships in the mobile ecosystem.  Essentially they have become the service provider and the operator a […]

Developer Community / Ingestion Management Taxonomies

I show below a sample of a taxonomy of the operators’ developer communities across consumer applications (e.g. widgets), consumer content (music, ring-tones, caller ring back tones, wallpaper), enterprise applications (e.g. field force automation tools) and enterprise IT (that is having enterprise IT departments build apps for their employees only).
