Diginomics: Published Resources

“Diginomics” Recognized in Spain

diginomics (en espanol)“Diginomics” began here in Houston in 1998 (not the scientific technology, but the term itself) when it was first posted on the Internet. Do a web search, and you will find increasing global trending of the term, just as was originally desired.

Now, there is a book —  “Diginomics: The impact of technology in business” — that has been published by a couple of professors, Gabriel and Patrick Foglia O’Gorman, members of the Faculty of Economics of the University of Palermo. In Google, you can have the reference page translated. Check it out: http://diginomicsinfo.wordpress.com/

This is expected to spur buoyant growth for various mobile-enabled services, especially ‘Mobile Payments’ or ‘m-payments’.

M-payments subscribers will increase from 206 million worldwide users at the end of 2010 to 1,050 million users by the end of 2015.”

Those predictions and more appear in the Future of Mobile Payments 2013 special report produced by the editors of PaymentEye.com, a “global news intelligence and analysis tool for a network of professionals involved in the payments sector worldwide, from innovative start-ups and clearing banks to merchant PoS innovators and mobile solutions companies.”
