BBVA Research unveils iPad® app for its macroeconomic analyses

-- The new tool provides more intuitive access to reports published by BBVA Research, with chronological, geographic or sector-based filters

MADRID, Jan. 10, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- BBVA Research has launched a new app for the iPad that provides access to all the content developed by BBVA's research service. The tool, called BBVAResearch, is available for free at Apple's App Store. The application offers the user a dynamic way of accessing the economic information available at www.bbvaresearch.com.

The app's features include a new format for viewing global, regional and local macroeconomic forecasts developed by BBVA Research, as well as filters for viewing all of the BBVA Research content using a range of criteria. Specifically, users can access all the reports by geographic area (global, Europe, Spain, U.S., Mexico, Latin America or Asia); by theme (macroeconomic or sector-based analyses, financial systems, pensions, migration) or by type of publication (Economic Outlooks, Watches, Working Papers, Flashes, books, opinion articles, etc.).

Furthermore, all users can access the EAGLE (Emerging and Growth-Leading Economies) or Country Risk reports and will have the option of selecting content and saving them as favorites to read later. The tool also has the capability to share content on social networks, including Twitter and Facebook.

The head of BBVA Research, Jorge Sicilia, believes that this new application represents "another step toward BBVA Research's consolidation as a benchmark in macroeconomic research and analysis, thanks to the increase in the distribution of our reports to new users." Sicilia also pointed out that "this project stems from a need to bring economic analysis within reach of our customers and society at large during these particularly challenging times, using cutting-edge technologies that allow a wider and better distribution of the information."

New lines of work

The new app is being developed jointly by the areas of Innovation and Processes of BBVA Research, and BBVA Group's area of Innovation & Technology-Mobility. The new app is part of the BBVA Research Service's digital strategy, which is based on the application of new information technologies to provide access to all of BBVA Research's content from any location in a dynamic and interactive way.

The strategy is complemented by other lines of action that have been in development since early 2012 and are due to be completed this year. These include the transformation of the website www.bbvaresearch.com to make it easier for all types of interested audiences to access macroeconomic information, and to produce reports in new digital formats in order to enhance their versatility and make them easier to read and distribute through new channels. Similarly, work is also being done to achieve the revitalization of the presence on social networks to support the establishment of an ongoing and dynamic dialogue with the different types of audiences, such as those on Twitter™, LinkedIn® and YouTube®.

The project is in line with BBVA Group's innovation strategy, which places the spotlight on technology as an instrument of transformation and customer service, and reinforces its engagement with society and its contribution to the economic debate.

DevOps is being widely accepted (if not fully adopted) as essential in enterprise IT. But as Enterprise DevOps gains maturity, expands scope, and increases velocity, the need for data-driven decisions across teams becomes more acute. DevOps teams in any modern business must wrangle the ‘digital exhaust’ from the delivery toolchain, "pervasive" and "cognitive" computing, APIs and services, mobile devices and applications, the Internet of Things, and now even blockchain. In this power panel at @...
WebRTC services have already permeated corporate communications in the form of videoconferencing solutions. However, WebRTC has the potential of going beyond and catalyzing a new class of services providing more than calls with capabilities such as mass-scale real-time media broadcasting, enriched and augmented video, person-to-machine and machine-to-machine communications. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Luis Lopez, CEO of Kurento, introduced the technologies required for implementing these idea...

Who are you? How do you introduce yourself? Do you use a name, or do you greet a friend by the last four digits of his social security number? Assuming you don’t, why are we content to associate our identity with 10 random digits assigned by our phone company? Identity is an issue that affects everyone, but as individuals we don’t spend a lot of time thinking about it. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Ben Klang, Founder & President of Mojo Lingo, discussed the impact of technology on identity. Sho...
Technology vendors and analysts are eager to paint a rosy picture of how wonderful IoT is and why your deployment will be great with the use of their products and services. While it is easy to showcase successful IoT solutions, identifying IoT systems that missed the mark or failed can often provide more in the way of key lessons learned. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Peter Vanderminden, Principal Industry Analyst for IoT & Digital Supply Chain to Flatiron Strategies, will focus on how IoT depl...
Data is an unusual currency; it is not restricted by the same transactional limitations as money or people. In fact, the more that you leverage your data across multiple business use cases, the more valuable it becomes to the organization. And the same can be said about the organization’s analytics. In his session at 19th Cloud Expo, Bill Schmarzo, CTO for the Big Data Practice at Dell EMC, introduced a methodology for capturing, enriching and sharing data (and analytics) across the organization...
With all the incredible momentum behind the Internet of Things (IoT) industry, it is easy to forget that not a single CEO wakes up and wonders if “my IoT is broken.” What they wonder is if they are making the right decisions to do all they can to increase revenue, decrease costs, and improve customer experience – effectively the same challenges they have always had in growing their business. The exciting thing about the IoT industry is now these decisions can be better, faster, and smarter. Now ...
WebRTC is about the data channel as much as about video and audio conferencing. However, basically all commercial WebRTC applications have been built with a focus on audio and video. The handling of “data” has been limited to text chat and file download – all other data sharing seems to end with screensharing. What is holding back a more intensive use of peer-to-peer data? In her session at @ThingsExpo, Dr Silvia Pfeiffer, WebRTC Applications Team Lead at National ICT Australia, looked at differ...
The cloud market growth today is largely in public clouds. While there is a lot of spend in IT departments in virtualization, these aren’t yet translating into a true “cloud” experience within the enterprise. What is stopping the growth of the “private cloud” market? In his general session at 18th Cloud Expo, Nara Rajagopalan, CEO of Accelerite, explored the challenges in deploying, managing, and getting adoption for a private cloud within an enterprise. What are the key differences between wh...

In 2014, Amazon announced a new form of compute called Lambda. We didn't know it at the time, but this represented a fundamental shift in what we expect from cloud computing. Now, all of the major cloud computing vendors want to take part in this disruptive technology.

The many IoT deployments around the world are busy integrating smart devices and sensors into their enterprise IT infrastructures. Yet all of this technology – and there are an amazing number of choices – is of no use without the software to gather, communicate, and analyze the new data flows. Without software, there is no IT. In this power panel at @ThingsExpo, moderated by Conference Chair Roger Strukhoff, Dave McCarthy, Director of Products at Bsquare Corporation; Alan Williamson, Principal ...
IoT is at the core or many Digital Transformation initiatives with the goal of re-inventing a company's business model. We all agree that collecting relevant IoT data will result in massive amounts of data needing to be stored. However, with the rapid development of IoT devices and ongoing business model transformation, we are not able to predict the volume and growth of IoT data. And with the lack of IoT history, traditional methods of IT and infrastructure planning based on the past do not app...
