Organised by CIO Asia magazine at the Raffles Hotel in Singapore.Key personnel from the new Security Systems unit in IBM updated CIOs and key IT managers on the numerous reports of data leaks, Denial-of-Service attacks, and social Hacktivisim in 2011.

“Integration of other media around mobile helps to create a level of engagement that has always been lacking, letting consumers move effortlessly from online to offline to online,” Loehnis added.The MMAF was sponsored by Amobee, BuzzCity, The Coca-Cola Company, Gemalto, Google Inc., mediba Inc., Microsoft Advertising, Millennial Media, m-Stars, Nokia, Poynt Corp.

Some 300 delegates and speakers gained new understanding of the importance of mobile, the central position of the consumer, and the use of mobile for brand-building.

“Consumers will be less concerned about the distinctions between mobile and digital and Internet, but will simply operate within a converged space,” said Guest-of-Honour, Mr Michael Yap when he delivered his Keynote Address. Mr Michael Yap is Deputy CEO, Media Development Authority of Singapore (MDA).The future of mobile marketing were discussed against the changing digital media landscape of today.

Closely focused on evolving consumer behaviour in the current technological environment and how brands and marketers can engage, inform and influence them, the first day of MMAF offered industry the chance to identify market trends that will shape a smarter future.

Industry and media leaders such as PricewaterhouseCoopers, Google and Nokia presented topics themed around “A Smarter Tomorrow” at the Grand Hyatt in Singapore.

The presentations highlighted how the development of the mobile marketing and advertising industry is contingent on a deeper understanding of tech-equipped digitally-aware consumers, who have come to understand and shape the new emerging media.

“There may be low-end devices, but there are no low-end consumers,” said Srikanth Raju, Head, Ecosystem, APAC, Nokia, referring to how all consumers want compelling experiences, regardless of the device. The next talk was by Marcel Fenez, Global Leader Entertainment & Media, PricewaterhouseCoopers, who eschewed a discussion of technology in favour of talking about what consumers want in terms of content and how they behave.

Against the backdrop of an informative video that included candid comments from consumers from all over the world, Fenez explained that consumers take technology as a given, and that they are more interested in content than in channels.
