To better evaluate the impact of the Super Bowl on ecommerce and website traffic, SOASTA conducted a survey that examined the online and mobile habits and preferences of Americans watching this year's big game ...

While IoT is gaining traction with consumers, it's already having a transformative effect on the business world. Companies can analyze the volumes of data connected devices supply to improve decision-making processes and to help employees be more productive.
