Tealeaf introduces powerful new mobile customer experience solution, gives organisations the ability to see mobile channels through the eyes of their customers
SAN FRANCISCO - March 28, 2012 - Tealeaf®, a leader in digital customer experience management solutions, today introduced the latest version of Tealeaf CX Mobile™, a complete mobile customer experience management solution.
Tealeaf CX Mobile enables sophisticated customer experience analysis across all mobile channels, including mobile web sites, native iOS and Android apps, hybrid apps, and the growing number of apps and sites built in HTML5.
The Mobile Ecommerce Revolution
Mobile commerce is growing faster than any form of ecommerce has previously. (2) The era of creating websites solely for customers using desktops or laptops is over.
Mobile devices will outnumber humans in 2012. (1)
By 2014 mobile will exceed desktop internet usage.(2)
Mobile transactions will grow exponentially and are expected to exceed $1T by 2015.(3)
This explosion in mobile adoption adds to the mounting pressure on consumer-organisations to deliver the best possible mobile experiences or risk losing customers, and not just from the mobile channel.
85 percent of consumers expect the mobile experience to be better than online experiences using a laptop or desktop computer.(4)
63 percent of all online adults said they would be less likely to buy from the same company via other purchase channels if they experienced a problem conducting a transaction on their mobile phones.(4)
Tealeaf CX Mobile Helps Businesses Get it Right
Tealeaf CX Mobile allows businesses to understand, respond to and optimise the complete mobile customer experience by enabling them to see their sites and apps through the eyes of their customers.
Tealeaf CX Mobile gives organisations the context necessary to enable their mobile apps and mobile sites to be useful, engaging and functioning properly. It provides documented evidence of customer struggles and the ability to quantify the business impact of customer challenges. For example, Tealeaf CX Mobile captures:
In-screen actions, including orientation, pinching, and scrolling
Enhanced mobile browser replay to re-create problems and optimise functionality
Device-level data, such as device type, browser version or operating system
With this information, companies can drill down to understand the context of every interaction. Using Tealeaf CX Mobile, organisations are able to:
Automatically detect customer struggles, obstacles or issues
Isolate problems and quantify users affected and business impacted
Identify opportunities to optimise the end user experience for the small screen
Translate customer feedback and ratings into actionable improvements
Correlate customer behaviour with network and application problems
Tealeaf CX Mobile is part of the Tealeaf CX suite and the data captured is available for analysis, optimisation and customer service by both the Tealeaf CX Customer Behavior Analysis Suite™ and the Tealeaf CX Customer Service Optimization Suite™.
Tealeaf CX Mobile is immediately available.

The security devil is always in the details of the attack: the ones you've endured, the ones you prepare yourself to fend off, and the ones that, you fear, will catch you completely unaware and defenseless. The Internet of Things (IoT) is nothing if not an endless proliferation of details. It's the vision of a world in which continuous Internet connectivity and addressability is embedded into a growing range of human artifacts, into the natural world, and even into our smartphones, appliances, and physical persons. In the IoT vision, every new "thing" - sensor, actuator, data source, data con...

The Internet of Things is tied together with a thin strand that is known as time. Coincidentally, at the core of nearly all data analytics is a timestamp. When working with time series data there are a few core principles that everyone should consider, especially across datasets where time is the common boundary. In his session at Internet of @ThingsExpo, Jim Scott, Director of Enterprise Strategy & Architecture at MapR Technologies, discussed single-value, geo-spatial, and log time series data. By focusing on enterprise applications and the data center, he will use OpenTSDB as an example t...

How do APIs and IoT relate? The answer is not as simple as merely adding an API on top of a dumb device, but rather about understanding the architectural patterns for implementing an IoT fabric. There are typically two or three trends: Exposing the device to a management framework Exposing that management framework to a business centric logic Exposing that business layer and data to end users. This last trend is the IoT stack, which involves a new shift in the separation of what stuff happens, where data lives and where the interface lies. For instance, it's a mix of architectural styles ...

Enthusiasm for the Internet of Things has reached an all-time high. In 2013 alone, venture capitalists spent more than $1 billion dollars investing in the IoT space. With "smart" appliances and devices, IoT covers wearable smart devices, cloud services to hardware companies. Nest, a Google company, detects temperatures inside homes and automatically adjusts it by tracking its user's habit. These technologies are quickly developing and with it come challenges such as bridging infrastructure gaps, abiding by privacy concerns and making the concept a reality. These challenges can't be addressed w...

The Domain Name Service (DNS) is one of the most important components in networking infrastructure, enabling users and services to access applications by translating URLs (names) into IP addresses (numbers). Because every icon and URL and all embedded content on a website requires a DNS lookup loading complex sites necessitates hundreds of DNS queries. In addition, as more internet-enabled ‘Things' get connected, people will rely on DNS to name and find their fridges, toasters and toilets. According to a recent IDG Research Services Survey this rate of traffic will only grow. What's driving t...

Scott Jenson leads a project called The Physical Web within the Chrome team at Google. Project members are working to take the scalability and openness of the web and use it to talk to the exponentially exploding range of smart devices. Nearly every company today working on the IoT comes up with the same basic solution: use my server and you'll be fine. But if we really believe there will be trillions of these devices, that just can't scale. We need a system that is open a scalable and by using the URL as a basic building block, we open this up and get the same resilience that the web enjoys.

We are reaching the end of the beginning with WebRTC, and real systems using this technology have begun to appear. One challenge that faces every WebRTC deployment (in some form or another) is identity management. For example, if you have an existing service – possibly built on a variety of different PaaS/SaaS offerings – and you want to add real-time communications you are faced with a challenge relating to user management, authentication, authorization, and validation. Service providers will want to use their existing identities, but these will have credentials already that are (hopefully) i...

The definition of IoT is not new, in fact it’s been around for over a decade. What has changed is the public's awareness that the technology we use on a daily basis has caught up on the vision of an always on, always connected world. If you look into the details of what comprises the IoT, you’ll see that it includes everything from cloud computing, Big Data analytics, “Things,” Web communication, applications, network, storage, etc. It is essentially including everything connected online from hardware to software, or as we like to say, it’s an Internet of many different things. The difference ...
