(Keynote) App Economy trends: developer sentiments, forecasts and motivations:

As the leading authority on the apps economy, VisionMobile’s CEO, Andreas Constantinou, will present the company’s latest findings from the largest ever mobile dev survey of 6,000+ developers. The presentation will analyse developer sentiment around platforms, revenues and revenue models, platform prioritisation, iOS vs Android vs HTML5 shoot-out, app economy forecasts 2013-2016, and a unique peek into the Hierarcy of Developer Motivations.  Attend the session to benefit from an unprecedented depth of insights into developer economy trends and opportunities.

(Workshop) Business model disruption: decoding the masterminds of Google and Amazon:

How does Google monetize Android? How do Google’s 60+ services fit into the ambitions of the most successful advertising network? Why does Amazon need Kindle, and how does the company manage to appease investors while returning almost no profit? VisionMobile’s team of PhDs, MBAs, economists and engineers have studied the world’s most successful technology companies and “cracked the code” underpinning their strategies and business models. Andreas Constantinou, VisionMobile’s CEO and Founder will present the blueprints of Google’s and Amazon’s business models, in unprecedented clarity, helping startups and Fortune-500 companies alike visualise how these companies are using novel business models to disrupt mobile and many more industries.
