Chairing the second day of the third Mobile Research Conference I set myself the task of presenting a round-up of the new ideas at the end of the day. Here’s a write-up of what I verbalised at the close of a fascinating day. It shows that mobile research is growing up up fast.
With social media research continuing to attract attention, findings from the 2010 Globalpark MR Software Survey, which are just out, reveal that research firms around the globe seem divide between adopters and sceptics, and among the adopters, between high-tech and low-tech practitioners - with some intriguing variations.
It's not the first time I've postulated that MR firms can be laggards with their technology. An early finding from the 2010 Globalpark MR Software Survey seems to back this up.

Melissa - there are two different price models - the £2,794 price is for a single licence tied to a single user on their PC, the £6,985 is for a single network licence that anyone can use in the organisation, but the number of people using it at once is limited to the number of concurrent user licences you buy - and the £6,895 price is for just one licence. These are the prices I was given in April last year,so they may have varied since then, especially since the underlying prices are in US Dollars. I don't have prices for add-on users, but these were less than the base price.
