CDNetworks kiest Etisalats SmartHub voor beter online shoppen

Etisalat is onlangs een regionaal strategisch samenwerkingsverband aangegaan met CDNetworks via Etisalats SmartHub om zo meer mogelijkheden te creëren voor e-commerce en online bestedingen in de VAE.

Door het samenwerkingsverband met Etisalat voegen de VAE zich als laatste point-of-presence (PoP) voor CDNetworks in het Midden-Oosten bij Turkije, Irak, Qatar en Saoedi-Arabië, waarmee CDNetworks wereldwijd nu over meer dan 140 PoP's beschikt.

“Met meer dan 70% van de bevolking van de VAE online zullen klanten van CDNetworks flink profiteren van de samenwerking met Etisalat,” aldus Jeff Kim, COO van CDNetworks voor het Amerikaanse continent en de EMEA-regio. “Gevoegd bij onze huidige aanwezigheid in het Midden-Oosten betekent deze point-of-presence dat onze klanten die goederen en diensten in de regio aanbieden voor de best mogelijke gebruikservaring kunnen zorgen.”

De VAE beschikt over een welvarende bevolking die op het internet zoeken naar artikelen en daar aanschaffen. Uit een recent onderzoek van MasterCard is gebleken dat consumenten uit de VAE online vluchten boeken, hotelovernachtingen reserveren en huisapparatuur en ook kleding aanschaffen. Volgens het Internationale Monetaire Fonds hadden de VAE in 2011 het op zeven na grootste bruto nationaal product per hoofd van de bevolking, en groeit dit volgens de centrale bank potentieel met 3,5% in 2012. Daarmee zijn de VAE een aanzienlijke markt voor reis- en retailklanten van CDNetworks.

“We zijn erg blij met de samenwerking met CDNetworks,” aldus dhr. Ali Amiri, uitvoerend directeur van luchtvaart- en groothandelsdiensten van Etisalat VAE. “Dankzij de combinatie van onze veerkrachtige SmartHub-infrastructuur en de Global Cloud Acceleration van CDNetworks zal door het lokaal aanbieden van rich content de gebruikservaring op het internet van onze klanten in de VAE verbeteren.”

“Via dit en andere samenwerkingsverbanden zorgen we dat de nieuwste TCT-applicaties binnen bereik van onze klanten komen, daarbij gebruikmakend van onze SmartHub-infrastructuur die we zullen blijven ontwikkelen om onze leidende positie in dit veld te behouden,” aldus dhr. Amiri.

If you’re responsible for an application that depends on the data or functionality of various IoT endpoints – either sensors or devices – your brand reputation depends on the security, reliability, and compliance of its many integrated parts. If your application fails to deliver the expected business results, your customers and partners won't care if that failure stems from the code you developed or from a component that you integrated. What can you do to ensure that the endpoints work as expect...

Digitization is driving a fundamental change in society that is transforming the way businesses work with their customers, their supply chains and their people. Digital transformation leverages DevOps best practices, such as Agile Parallel Development, Continuous Delivery and Agile Operations to capitalize on opportunities and create competitive differentiation in the application economy. However, information security has been notably absent from the DevOps movement. Speed doesn’t have to negat...
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 de...
Your business relies on your applications and your employees to stay in business. Whether you develop apps or manage business critical apps that help fuel your business, what happens when users experience sluggish performance?

Fact is, enterprises have significant legacy voice infrastructure that’s costly to replace with pure IP solutions. How can we bring this analog infrastructure into our shiny new cloud applications? There are proven methods to bind both legacy voice applications and traditional PSTN audio into cloud-based applications and services at a carrier scale. Some of the most successful implementations leverage WebRTC, WebSockets, SIP and other open source technologies. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Da...
Most of us already know that adopting new cloud applications can boost a business’s productivity by enabling organizations to be more agile and ready to change course in our fast-moving and connected digital world.

At the same time, the cloud – because of its interconnected, flexible and adaptable...
Digital transformation is too big and important for our future success to not understand the rules that apply to it.
