SAN MATEO, CA -- (Marketwire) -- 02/06/13 -- Kii Corporation today announced the launch of Kii Analytics, the only fully customizable in-app analytics solution to give developers the ability to define their own app metrics. Now, developers can dynamically track the in-app user behavior they care about most, in terms specific to each application, gaining insights far beyond generic, vanity numbers such as mere installs and activations. For the many app developers in need of a responsive, flexible solution for tracking unique user behaviors, Kii Analytics enable them to quickly iterate and improve retention and engagement, better maximize conversion and monetization, and turn their mobile applications into successful businesses.
Kii is also announcing the general availability of Kii Cloud. The services are available separately, but when used in tandem, offer the added ability to instantly run new custom metrics without having to update the app or instrument additional code. The combination of flexible analytics and an infinitely scalable cloud backend allows developers to deploy apps and manage users and data immediately, while improving overall app functionality and monetization more efficiently than any other end-to-end solution on the market.
Kii Analytics features:
- Define your own metrics: Complete customizable tracking of unique in-app user behavior accessible through a web interface.
- Track unexpected, emergent user behavior: Once deployed on Kii Cloud, developers can track user behavior across time -- including activity the developers didn't anticipate during launch or update.
- Create multiple dimensions per metric: Slice and dice data in endless combinations.
- Aggregate data in multiple ways: Including count, sum, average and more.
- Developer Dashboard: The Kii developer portal allows developers to visualize metrics, drill down into different dimensions, filter, etc, and is fully customizable.
- Pull app data metrics through APIs: Retrieve app metric results thru APIs in order to change behavior based on how a metric is doing.
- Analyze from anywhere: Analyze app data directly and instantaneously from Kii Cloud without having to insert any SDK or write any code.
- Enhance current analytics: Run Kii alongside other available analytics offerings and decide which provides the most useful data for you.
"No other analytics offering is as flexible or insightful as Kii Analytics," said Masanari Arai, CEO and co-founder of Kii Corporation. "There is a huge divide between the metrics app developers really want to track and what other current solutions are able to offer. Kii Analytics puts the app developer squarely in control -- allowing the developer to define and track metrics that make sense to them -- in the terms that make sense to them."
"We needed deep visibility into usage of our app that goes well beyond the retention and conversion metrics that some app analytics solutions seem to offer," said Goeun Kim, CEO of HUGG, an app for romantic couples and Kii Analytics beta developer. "We needed visibility into usage patterns of various parts of our application -- like number of messages exchanged by couples, and types of offers liked, sliced further by details such as age, location, relationship strength and more. Kii Analytics gave us control over the definition of metrics that we wanted to track. Plus, we could define and track these metrics on data in the cloud, without having to keep updating our app."
Kii technology is proven to be highly scalable and reliable, but app developers also benefit by partnering with a company with the size and scale of Kii. An established, profitable company with its own Venture Capital fund (Kii Capital), Kii also provides mobile app developers access to a distribution network of Asian mobile operators and OEMs (Kii Partners). The fusion of technology, financial backing and distribution partners creates a one-stop business accelerator for participating mobile developers.

The industrial software market has treated data with the mentality of “collect everything now, worry about how to use it later.” We now find ourselves buried in data, with the pervasive connectivity of the (Industrial) Internet of Things only piling on more numbers. There’s too much data and not enough information. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Bob Gates, Global Marketing Director, GE’s Intelligent Platforms business, to discuss how realizing the power of IoT, software developers are now focused on understanding how industrial data can create intelligence for industrial operations.

Operational Hadoop and the Lambda Architecture for Streaming Data Apache Hadoop is emerging as a distributed platform for handling large and fast incoming streams of data. Predictive maintenance, supply chain optimization, and Internet-of-Things analysis are examples where Hadoop provides the scalable storage, processing, and analytics platform to gain meaningful insights from granular data that is typically only valuable from a large-scale, aggregate view. One architecture useful for capturing and analyzing streaming data is the Lambda Architecture, representing a model of how to analyze rea...

The Internet of Things (IoT) is causing data centers to become radically decentralized and atomized within a new paradigm known as “fog computing.” To support IoT applications, such as connected cars and smart grids, data centers' core functions will be decentralized out to the network's edges and endpoints (aka “fogs”). As this trend takes hold, Big Data analytics platforms will focus on high-volume log analysis (aka “logs”) and rely heavily on cognitive-computing algorithms (aka “cogs”) to make sense of it all.

In the consumer IoT, everything is new, and the IT world of bits and bytes holds sway. But industrial and commercial realms encompass operational technology (OT) that has been around for 25 or 50 years. This grittier, pre-IP, more hands-on world has much to gain from Industrial IoT (IIoT) applications and principles. But adding sensors and wireless connectivity won’t work in environments that demand unwavering reliability and performance. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Ron Sege, CEO of Echelon, will discuss how as enterprise IT embraces other IoT-related technology trends, enterprises with i...

When it comes to the Internet of Things, hooking up will get you only so far. If you want customers to commit, you need to go beyond simply connecting products. You need to use the devices themselves to transform how you engage with every customer and how you manage the entire product lifecycle. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Sean Lorenz, Technical Product Manager for Xively at LogMeIn, will show how “product relationship management” can help you leverage your connected devices and the data they generate about customer usage and product performance to deliver extremely compelling and reliabl...

Since 2008 and for the first time in history, more than half of humans live in urban areas, urging cities to become “smart.” Today, cities can leverage the wide availability of smartphones combined with new technologies such as Beacons or NFC to connect their urban furniture and environment to create citizen-first services that improve transportation, way-finding and information delivery. In her session at @ThingsExpo, Laetitia Gazel-Anthoine, CEO of Connecthings, will focus on successful use cases.

The true value of the Internet of Things (IoT) lies not just in the data, but through the services that protect the data, perform the analysis and present findings in a usable way. With many IoT elements rooted in traditional IT components, Big Data and IoT isn’t just a play for enterprise. In fact, the IoT presents SMBs with the prospect of launching entirely new activities and exploring innovative areas. CompTIA research identifies several areas where IoT is expected to have the greatest impact.

Wearable devices have come of age. The primary applications of wearables so far have been "the Quantified Self" or the tracking of one's fitness and health status. We propose the evolution of wearables into social and emotional communication devices. Our BE(tm) sensor uses light to visualize the skin conductance response. Our sensors are very inexpensive and can be massively distributed to audiences or groups of any size, in order to gauge reactions to performances, video, or any kind of presentation. In her session at @ThingsExpo, Jocelyn Scheirer, CEO & Founder of Bionolux, will discuss ho...
