Research and Markets: Social Media, Digital Tools, and Mobile Technology Trends in Life Science - Growing Demand for Mobile and Tablet Applications

DUBLIN --(Business Wire)--

Research and Markets (http://www.researchandmarkets.com/research/fsfm4b/social_media) has announced the addition of the "Social Media, Digital Tools, and Mobile Technology Trends in Life Science" report to their offering.

The purpose of this survey was to understand the current and future use of digital technologies and how this landscape is changing the scientists that use them and the vendors and advertisers that wish to engage them.

Report highlights

  • Many mainstream social media platforms are being used for both personal and professional use concurrently with the exception of LinkedIn (News - Alert) which remains primarily a professional venue.
  • Women between 25-34 are the most active segment of users of social media.
  • Newer tools such as Reddit, Tumblr and Pinterest, although used less than mature tools such as Twitter, LinkedIn and Facebook (News - Alert), are attracting a significant number of younger researchers.

Companies should take notice f this trend, not only as a potential channel for outreach, but also for insights into what of these features of these tools appeal to future decision-makers.

  • Even highly active users of popular social media are not highly engaged with science-specific platforms.
  • Many science-specific platforms have struggled to establish a presence in the community; more than 50% of respondents had not joined or did not know about science-focused communities.
  • Reference management tools are one of the most highly used science-specific tools among those surveyed, while inventory and lab management applications are eclipsed by multipurpose utilities like Microsoft (News - Alert) Office® programs and Google Docs.
  • There is a growing demand for mobile and tablet applications in life sciences.
  • There is a strong distinction between the applications used in mobile versus tablets.

Oracle in Enterprise Communications

Most in the industry have heard of the acquisition of Acme Packet by Oracle. What you may not know is that Oracle has a number of telecommunications products including a UC suite, WebRTC Session Controller, and Operations monitoring tools. Oracle is pursuing both the enterprise and service provider.

Featured Whitepapers

WebRTC Security Concerns

This whitepaper covers two of the most relevant topics in communications industry today: WebRTC and security. We will introduce the problem of security in WebRTC including those traditional VoIP attacks that are going to be present in WebRTC services. Later we will mention ad-hoc WebRTC attacks and protection mechanisms, to close with an overview of identity management solutions.

Migrating Real Time Communications Services to the Web

In the Internet age, businesses that own fixed and mobile communication networks, including traditional Communications Service Providers (CSPs) of all kinds, are being challenged with some tough questions: How do we stay relevant to our customers?

Delivering Enterprise-Class Communications with WebRTC

WebRTC is an emerging industry standard for enabling Web browsers with real-time communications capabilities. It enables enterprises to enhance Web sites, empower BYOD users, and improve video collaboration and on-line meetings, to name but a few examples.

WebRTC Report Extract Reprint

This document examines the growing important of WebRTC, both generally and for telecom service providers. It considers the expanding range of use-cases, the multiple layers of interoperability likely to be desired by telcos, and some implications in terms of network integration and mobility.

Robust Enterprise Grade WebRTC Systems and Services


The emerging WebRTC standard has become one of the industry's hottest topics – and with good reason. Being able to "communications enable the web" has Communications Service Providers as well as Enterprises busily making plans for deployment. But, as these plans unfold, reality is starting to intrude on those plans. Our expectations of telephony services are much higher than web browsing. We expect the phone to connect instantly, operate with minimal disruption, and work seamless across any network, anywhere, at any time. There is also an understanding that phone service is inherently secure. With WebRTC, the expectation is for these applications to behave in the same manner.

This session looks at the user experience and expectations of a WebRTC Enterprise service. It will also cover how a WebRTC enterprise handles security, reliability, and interoperability within browsers and networks.

ORACLE COMMUNICATIONS WEBRTC SESSION CONTROLLER

The Oracle Communications WebRTC Session Controller enables communications service providers (CSPs) and enterprises to offer WebRTC services – from virtually any device, across virtually any network – with carrier-grade reliability and security.

ORACLE COMMUNICATIONS WEBRTC SESSION CONTROLLER SOLUTION

Communication Service Provider (CSP) voice service revenues continue to face pressure due to shifts in communication preferences and competition from non-traditional service providers. Voice communications are now often embedded into applications outside the domain of traditional telephony voice usage. CSPs have been challenged to effectively leverage and monetize new web-oriented communications technologies.
