o Single Digits Acquires Annapolis-Based Airwave Networks

Annapolis, Md. -- Single Digits, a New Hampshire-based developer of high speed Internet access management software, said it has acquired Annapolis-based Airwave Networks, which provides Internet access and digital TV services to student housing and apartment buildings. Financial terms of the deal were not disclosed. Airwave's staff of more than 150 employees will make the transition. "We were approached by many different companies, and ultimately felt that Single Digits was the best fit," said Bill Rinard, the CEO of Airwave. "As the Wi-Fi hospitality leader, providing over 200 million unique authentications per year, we were convinced that Single Digits has the technology and capacity to handle the demands of our customer base and provide top-notch service." Founded in 2001, Airwave is the developer of Broadband Authentication Platform (BAP) software, designed to streamline the process of managing telecom subscription services for students in 44 states and Canada.

o Study: IT Incidents Damaged the Business Reputation of 70% of Firms

San Francisco -- More than two-thirds of companies (70%) in a new survey say that a critical IT incident has harmed their reputation. The survey, conducted by analyst firm Quocirca for Splunk, also found that the average organization suffers five critical IT incidents a month, with each one costing the IT department on average $36,326 and a further $105,302 to the rest of the business. "It's clear that organizations are finding it challenging to maintain end-to-end visibility with the growing volume of data being generated by their IT systems and infrastructure," said Bob Tarzey, an analyst at Quocirca. "This is holding IT teams back from being able to drill down and pinpoint the root cause of issues that are causing frequent and recurring problems. This often results in reputational damage and poor customer experience, impacting a company's bottom line." The complete study is available at the link below.

o Survey: Most Americans Still Prefer Shopping at Physical Stores

Hayward, Calif. -- When it comes to shopping, the vast majority of Americans prefer brick-and-mortar stores to exclusively e-commerce, according to a new study by June20. The survey of 1,000 U.S. adults conducted by Propeller Insights found that 84% prefer either brick-and-mortar or at a combination of online and in-store retailers. The majority said they continue to visit physical stores because they like to see and touch products before buying them. But when asked what they like about the online shopping experience that is missing from stores, 42% said they miss the ability to compare items and 31% miss the easy access to information about products. "Our research shows that Americans gravitate to online shopping because they like having more choices and the ability to compare items with rich content and information at their fingertips. This helps them make their buying decisions,” said Jason Seed, the chief operating officer (COO) of June20. "However, our research also reveals that Americans are craving the curated experience that being in a physical store brings." Clothing, beauty products and accessories are the top items Americans prefer to experience in-store before purchasing, while smartphones are the items they feel they least need to experience in person.
