  • The Mobile Network in 2015
    Global mobile data traffic will increase 26-fold between 2010 and 2015. Mobile data traffic will grow at a
    compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 92 percent from 2010 to 2015, reaching 6.3 exabytes per month by 2015.
    There will be nearly one mobile device per capita by 2015. There will be over 7.1 billion mobile-connected
    devices, including machine-to-machine (M2M) modules, in 2015—approximately equal to the world’s population
    in 2015 (7.2 billion).
    Mobile network connection speeds will increase 10-fold by 2015. The average mobile network connection speed
    (215 kbps in 2010) will grow at a compound annual growth rate of 60 percent, and will exceed 2.2 megabits per
    second (Mbps) in 2015.
    Two-thirds of the world’s mobile data traffic will be video by 2015. Mobile video will more than double every
    year between 2010 and 2015. Mobile video has the highest growth rate of any application category measured within
    the Cisco VNI forecast at this time.
    Mobile-connected tablets will generate as much traffic in 2015 as the entire global mobile network in 2010.
    The amount of mobile data traffic generated by tablets in 2015 (248 petabytes per month) will be approximately
    equal to the total amount of global mobile data traffic in 2010 (242 petabytes per month). The same will be true of
    M2M traffic, which will reach 295 petabytes per month in 2015. White Paper

    The average smartphone will generate 1.3 GB of traffic per month in 2015, a 16-fold increase over the 2010
    average of 79 MB per month. Aggregate smartphone traffic in 2015 will be 47 times greater than it is today, with
    a CAGR of 116 percent.
    By 2015, over 800 million terabytes of mobile data traffic will be offloaded to the fixed network by means
    of dual-mode devices and femtocells. Without dual-mode and femtocell offload of smartphone and tablet traffic,
    total mobile data traffic would reach 7.1 exabytes per month in 2015, growing at a CAGR of 95 percent.
    The Middle East and Africa will have the strongest mobile data traffic growth of any region at 129 percent
    CAGR, followed by Latin America at 111 percent and Central and Eastern Europe at 102 percent.
    There will be 788 million mobile-only Internet users by 2015. The mobile-only Internet population will grow 56-
    fold from 14 million at the end of 2010 to 788 million by the end of 2015

    Savings in carbon emissions: 84,400 tonnes
  • George Siemens claims that ‘…the internet of things will likely have a greater impact on humanity than social media.’ His reasoning is that whilst social media is an ‘…overlay of socialization on top of our physical worlds,’ that
    It is important to stress that the internet of things is not just a synchronization of appliances and processes with the internet in a one way linear relationship. Indeed, as more and more objects are being embedded with communicative equipment and sensors, the conversation will be as much a two-way route between objects, using the internet as a medium.
    . In 2009 the Internet had around 575 million host computers. There will be 22 billion web-connected devices in the world by 2020, according to a 2010 study, with internet connectivity set to surge. At the moment, the number of web-enabled devices resides at around 5 billion.
    Network effect theory:
    They get better as more people use them.
    The Moore's Law of mobile gadgets.
    We'll be overrun with social and location-aware apps.
    Have a smartphone, a car, and extra time? Now you can become a part-time cabdriver:
    Uber connects riders via GPS and ubiquitous networks.
    Park Circa lets you turn your private driveway into a shared parking space.
    Parker pays through their smartphone. 
    Apps like these will become not just useful, but normal

    People won’t follow a plan - the will follow a dream!
    Ironically – people don’t really need certainty, they do need inspiration!
    The consultants don’t tell you this because they cant sell you inspiration!
  • All of these books, and all of these consultancies, advocate their own methodology which, so we are told, will guarantee success.
    The problem is that none of these methodologies deal with change, they only deal with the process of change.
    That raises the question as to what do we mean when we say “change”
