Mobile devices are ideal data capture and presentation points. They offer boundless opportunities for data collection and the presentation of temporally- and spatially-relevant data. The most compelling mobile applications will require aggregation, analysis and transformation of data from many devices and users. But intermittent network connectivity and constrained processing, storage, bandwidth and battery resources present significant obstacles. Highlighted with real-world applications, this session will cover challenges and approaches to device data collection; device-device and device-cloud data synchronization; and cloud-based data aggregation, analysis and transformation.
