my name is Dietmar. I am a senior consultant and researcher at wi-mobile (http://www.wi-mobile.de). My main research field is mobile financial services and mobile marketing. I have worked on several studies in these areas focusing on acceptance and usability as well as market forecasts. I have been responsible for a number of industry and EU projects, e.g., the SEMOPS project (http://www.semops.com).
After my dissertation [hopefully in March 2009 ;-)] I am seeking the next challenging opportunity in a consulting company with focus on m-payment, m-marketing or other mobile topics.
PS: By the way, do not miss the MCTA 2009 (http://www.mcta.de), the leading m-payment conference in German speaking countries!
the latest study on e-commerce in Germany conducted by ibi research shows that 26% of online retailers think that mobile payment has "high" or "very high" potential. Protection agains payment defaults and low costs are the most important requirements of online retailers.
