Mobile innovations as embodied in mobile wallets, payments, marketing, shopping and loyalty are redefining global business. This ecosystem of mobile commerce elements is at the heart of a revolution that is fundamentally changing how retailers and consumer engage with one another while online, in-store and via social media.

Unfortunately, very few truly understand this evolving mobile commerce model. The massive volume of information and the rapid pace of change are making it difficult for even the most astute companies to stay on top of it all.
