Enterprise (B2B and B2E) vs. Consumer mobile applications

Technology and market forces are the two important factors that drive enterprise mobility. With enterprise mobility focusing on front-user interfacing apps, many brands have switched on from traditional emailing to addressing the end user’s mobility needs with persona-based mobility solutions.

With multiple mobile personas for enterprises to handle, enterprises have a gargantuan task of crafting mobile strategies and applications for different platforms and programming languages.  44% of U.S. enterprises are mainly focused on building mobile applications for native devices (e.g., iOS, Android, Microsoft), and 39% that are focused on mobile web development.

To address the mobility needs of each persona, enterprises need to understand the various user profiles and their relationships and behaviors w.r.t different business processes (like talent management, sales, delivery, etc.) and subsets. There is a huge difference in developing and deploying mobile capabilities for enterprise-based and consumer-based relationships.

Google Beware! Here comes Siri…..

Apple’s voice assistant Siri, an exclusive feature of iPhone 4

It’s not Apple’s first foray into the voice-activated controls and speech-recognition realm, yet the best attempt so far. It seems so.

For those of you who are clueless about Siri, it’s time to get introduced to speech-recognition “personal assistant” , inbuilt in Apple iPhone 4S smartphones, unveiled last month. Don’t get mistaken for Siri isn’t an app. So, you can’t download it in a click from any App store. Nor is it any icon on the menu which you can tap on your iPhone.

Siri: All set to steal Internet searchers from Google

Siri is a speech-recognition computer software. It’s your new friend right in your pocket, who can speak to you or who you can speak to. It has already succeeded in capturing the eyeballs of tech watchers.

But why does Google need to be alert? Can Siri eat into Google like a Moth? Or is the media simply yammering about this young virtual assistant at full blow? Is Siri free of all backlashes?

Well, just like everything Siri too isn’t perfect but can be a great game changer. At least, for Google, that considers Siri as a completely novel approach to search technology and even the biggest threat to Google search control.

What cements this suspicion? The usage of Siri has been 10 times more than what even Apple had expected.

Siri, a voice-controlled virtual personal assistant, based on artificial intelligence.

One of the experts, Morgenthaler, is of the opinion that even one right answer from Siri holds more significance than a million search links from Google. And, if it starts getting more and more used to bypass search then Google can be in deep trouble.

Siri sets Google blindsided

With its beta version out, Siri tech titans are already busy supplementing its artificial-intelligence knowledge base with varied streams of user data. Siri is on a roll, guys!

Some have even gone to the extent of pitching their anticipation that Siri will successfully ape human beings in performing tasks in another couple of years. The real twist of the game would be if the Big Daddy Apple opens its API to third-party developers.

The new speech engine, Siri, certainly has a clear technological edge.

If this happens, I repeat if this happens, Android is most likely to suddenly disappear from the race. Why? The answer is obvious. In dearth of apt response to artificial intelligence competence, Google can bite the dust since mass developer mobilization to Apple can be witnessed as this brain child of Sir Steve Jobs focuses on developing some ‘out-of-the-box’, cool apps.

Apple vs. Google..Who will win?

You don’t need to speak like a robot as you do on Google since Siri permits  natural language interaction and applies logic. And, the users get the treat of human-like experiences and engagement level. Not only does it provide you with a blue link, but also navigates you to transactions, which you need to confirm. And, it’s done! It, therefore, saves your lot of time and effort.

It’s the future of search.

Hey all you techie friends, do let me know your insights on this.
