Mobile Banking & Bob Egan

Last week I had the opportunity to speak with Bob Egan (Chief Analyst - Tower Group) and was able to gain a fresh perspective on the mobile banking industry. If you have not had the opportunity to meet Bob, I'd recommend making it a top priority for a number of reasons including:

1) This is his second exposure to the "mobile boom." In the late 90's Bob was heavily entrenched in the mobile industry.
2) Bob has more than 30 years of experience in information technology.
3) Prior to joining Tower Group Bob founded and led Mobile Competency, a boutique market analyst and consulting company focused on enterprise mobile and wireless technologies and solutions.
4) During our discussion I found his analysis to be eerily accurate.
