Etisalat a récemment établi un partenariat stratégique régional avec CDNetworks par le biais du SmartHub d'Etisalat, pour offrir de plus grandes possibilités de commerce électronique et d'achat en ligne aux Émirats arabes unis (EAU).
Ce partenariat avec Etisalat fait des EAU le dernier pays à devenir un point de présence (PoP) de CDNetworks au Moyen-Orient. Les EAU rejoignent ainsi la Turquie, l'Irak, le Qatar et l'Arabie saoudite et CDNetworks compte maintenant plus de 140 points de présence dans le monde entier.
« Avec 70% de la population des EAU en ligne, les clients de CDNetworks bénéficieront grandement de ce partenariat avec Etisalat », a déclaré Jeff Kim, directeur des régions Amériques/EMOA de CDNetworks. « Ce point de présence, ajouté à notre couverture actuelle, permet à nos clients qui offrent des biens et des services en ligne dans la région de fournir la meilleure expérience utilisateur possible ».
Les EAU ont une solide clientèle fortunée qui se tourne vers l'Internet pour rechercher et acheter des articles. Une récente étude de MasterCard révèle que les consommateurs des EAU achètent en ligne leurs chambres d'hôtel, billets d'avion et appareils ménagers ainsi que leurs articles vestimentaires. Selon le Fonds monétaire international, les Émirats arabes unis affichaient en 2011 le septième plus grand PIB par habitant dans le monde. Et, selon la Banque centrale, la croissance potentielle de ce PIB est de 3,5 % en 2012, ce qui représente un marché important pour les clients du tourisme et du détail de CDNetworks.
« Nous sommes ravis de collaborer avec CDNetworks », a déclaré M. Ali Amiri, vice-président exécutif, Carrier and Wholesale Services, chez Etisalat UAE. « La combinaison de notre solide infrastructure SmartHub et de l'accélération du Cloud mondial de CDNetworks va améliorer l'expérience des internautes aux Émirats arabes unis en offrant un contenu enrichi au niveau local ».
« Grâce à ce partenariat et à d'autres semblables, nous développons un accès de classe mondiale aux plus récentes applications TIC en utilisant notre infrastructure SmartHub que nous allons continuer à développer afin de maintenir notre position de leader dans ce domaine », a ajouté M. Amiri.

Microservices are a very exciting architectural approach that many organizations are looking to as a way to accelerate innovation. Microservices promise to allow teams to move away from monolithic "ball of mud" systems, but the reality is that, in the vast majority of organizations, different projects and technologies will continue to be developed at different speeds. How to handle the dependencies between these disparate systems with different iteration cycles? Consider the "canoncial problem" in this scenario: microservice A (releases daily) depends on a couple of additions to backend B (re...

Too often with compelling new technologies market participants become overly enamored with that attractiveness of the technology and neglect underlying business drivers. This tendency, what some call the “newest shiny object syndrome” is understandable given that virtually all of us are heavily engaged in technology. But it is also mistaken. Without concrete business cases driving its deployment, IoT, like many other technologies before it, will fade into obscurity.

I recently attended and was a speaker at the 4th International Internet of @ThingsExpo at the Santa Clara Convention Center. I also had the opportunity to attend this event last year and I wrote a blog from that show talking about how the “Enterprise Impact of IoT” was a key theme of last year’s show. I was curious to see if the same theme would still resonate 365 days later and what, if any, changes I would see in the content presented.
