PhD Project

Mobile Analytics

Consumers’ increased use of Internet on mobile devices has challenged modern firms, who are struggling to respond to this changed behavior. Over the last few years, mobile apps, mobile internet and mobile advertising, and mobile commerce grew fast and drove rapid growth in digital marketing and digital advertising. Consumers shift their time spend on the Internet towards mobile devices challenging advertisers and publishers. Both sides of the network are struggling on how to respond to this changed behavior resulting in less efficient advertising, lower spending and lower revenues per consumer. This project will tap into the big data opportunity that specifically pertains to mobile generated data. Examples of mobile big data applications are location based marketing, localized m-commerce, and user-profile driven design differentiation- and optimization.
