ContextHub: an emerging platform for Context

Over the past four years, I have been fascinated at the speed at which the world has adopted mobile technologies: The advent of the App Store distribution model for software and media opened up new sources of revenue and dramatically accelerated what was already a fast adoption rate of smartphones: estimates peg today the global number of mobile users at 4.5 Billion, roughly two-thirds of the world population.

The advent of mobile, coupled with the rapid evolution of cloud-based offerings and proliferation of API’s everywhere, has drastically changed the technology landscape – the world today looks very different than it did just five years ago.
