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.

The IoT is changing the way enterprises conduct business. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Eric Hoffman, Vice President at EastBanc Technologies, discussed how businesses can gain an edge over competitors by empowering consumers to take control through IoT. He cited examples such as a Washington, D.C.-based sports club that leveraged IoT and the cloud to develop a comprehensive booking system. He also highlighted how IoT can revitalize and restore outdated business models, making them profitable ...
With 15% of enterprises adopting a hybrid IT strategy, you need to set a plan to integrate hybrid cloud throughout your infrastructure. In his session at 18th Cloud Expo, Steven Dreher, Director of Solutions Architecture at Green House Data, discussed how to plan for shifting resource requirements, overcome challenges, and implement hybrid IT alongside your existing data center assets. Highlights included anticipating workload, cost and resource calculations, integrating services on both sides...
Big Data engines are powering a lot of service businesses right now. Data is collected from users from wearable technologies, web behaviors, purchase behavior as well as several arbitrary data points we’d never think of. The demand for faster and bigger engines to crunch and serve up the data to services is growing exponentially. You see a LOT of correlation between “Cloud” and “Big Data” but on Big Data and “Hybrid,” where hybrid hosting is the sanest approach to the Big Data Infrastructure pro...
"We are a well-established player in the application life cycle management market and we also have a very strong version control product," stated Flint Brenton, CEO of CollabNet,, in this SYS-CON.tv interview at 18th Cloud Expo, held June 7-9, 2016, at the Javits Center in New York City, NY.
We all know the latest numbers: Gartner, Inc. forecasts that 6.4 billion connected things will be in use worldwide in 2016, up 30 percent from last year, and will reach 20.8 billion by 2020. We're rapidly approaching a data production of 40 zettabytes a day – more than we can every physically store, and exabytes and yottabytes are just around the corner. For many that’s a good sign, as data has been proven to equal money – IF it’s ingested, integrated, and analyzed fast enough. Without real-ti...
I wanted to gather all of my Internet of Things (IOT) blogs into a single blog (that I could later use with my University of San Francisco (USF) Big Data “MBA” course). However as I started to pull these blogs together, I realized that my IOT discussion lacked a vision; it lacked an end point towards which an organization could drive their IOT envisioning, proof of value, app dev, data engineering and data science efforts. And I think that the IOT end point is really quite simple…
A critical component of any IoT project is what to do with all the data being generated. This data needs to be captured, processed, structured, and stored in a way to facilitate different kinds of queries. Traditional data warehouse and analytical systems are mature technologies that can be used to handle certain kinds of queries, but they are not always well suited to many problems, particularly when there is a need for real-time insights.
We're entering the post-smartphone era, where wearable gadgets from watches and fitness bands to glasses and health aids will power the next technological revolution. With mass adoption of wearable devices comes a new data ecosystem that must be protected. Wearables open new pathways that facilitate the tracking, sharing and storing of consumers’ personal health, location and daily activity data. Consumers have some idea of the data these devices capture, but most don’t realize how revealing and...
Unless your company can spend a lot of money on new technology, re-engineering your environment and hiring a comprehensive cybersecurity team, you will most likely move to the cloud or seek external service partnerships. In his session at 18th Cloud Expo, Darren Guccione, CEO of Keeper Security, revealed what you need to know when it comes to encryption in the cloud.
You think you know what’s in your data. But do you? Most organizations are now aware of the business intelligence represented by their data. Data science stands to take this to a level you never thought of – literally. The techniques of data science, when used with the capabilities of Big Data technologies, can make connections you had not yet imagined, helping you discover new insights and ask new questions of your data. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Sarbjit Sarkaria, data science team lead ...
Extracting business value from Internet of Things (IoT) data doesn’t happen overnight. There are several requirements that must be satisfied, including IoT device enablement, data analysis, real-time detection of complex events and automated orchestration of actions. Unfortunately, too many companies fall short in achieving their business goals by implementing incomplete solutions or not focusing on tangible use cases. In his general session at @ThingsExpo, Dave McCarthy, Director of Products...

In his session at @ThingsExpo, Leo Papadopoulos, CTO of Cloud9, discussed the importance of WebRTC and how it enables companies to focus...
Is your aging software platform suffering from technical debt while the market changes and demands new solutions at a faster clip? It’s a bold move, but you might consider walking away from your core platform and starting fresh. ReadyTalk did exactly that. In his General Session at 19th Cloud Expo, Michael Chambliss, Head of Engineering at ReadyTalk, will discuss why and how ReadyTalk diverted from healthy revenue and over a decade of audio conferencing product development to start an innovati...
Early adopters of IoT viewed it mainly as a different term for machine-to-machine connectivity or M2M. This is understandable since a prerequisite for any IoT solution is the ability to collect and aggregate device data, which is most often presented in a dashboard. The problem is that viewing data in a dashboard requires a human to interpret the results and take manual action, which doesn’t scale to the needs of IoT.

IoT generates lots of temporal data. But how do you unlock its value? You need to discover patterns that are repeatable in vast quantities of data, understand their meaning, and implement scalable monitoring across multiple data streams in order to monetize the discoveries and insights. Motif discovery and deep learning platforms are emerging to visualize sensor data, to search for patterns and to build application that can monitor real time streams efficiently. In his session at @ThingsExpo, ...
