What are the preferred themes or use cases?
Calling for ideas and startups focused on Cloud Communications. We look at all ideas, but we are passionate about:

Security & Privacy

In the era of digital transformation, privacy and security are paramount and should be front and center. Convenience and accessibility should not come at the expense of invading privacy or breaching security. Users expect their confidential data to be protected, and organizations are keen to offer users more access to products and services. Hence the need for more innovation and standardization to maintain balance.

Focus areas and use cases include:

  • Identity Protection
  • User Authentication
  • Know Your Customer
  • Fraud Detection

Customer Experience

Nowadays customers are the focus of every vendor and service provider. Customer expectations are on the rise and demand for instant services is becoming more of a norm rather than an exception. A customer-centric approach to solving business problems leads to higher customer satisfaction and increases their chances of repeat business. Organizations need to ensure that every customer receives the attention they deserve, find the information they need, and fulfill their expectations from the organization.

Focus areas and use cases include:

  • Customer Service
  • Order Fulfillment
  • Location Based Services
  • 24/7/365 Self Service

Digital Transformation

Public and private entities are rapidly accelerating their digital transformation initiatives, budgets, and timelines to navigate the new normal. Projects that required years of planning and execution are now expected to complete in months or weeks. With technology advancements and reliable infrastructures, the impact exponentially multiplies with larger enterprises such as governments and public services. The scalability and reach required to serve millions of citizens and residents is now in high demand.

Focus areas and use cases include:

  • Utility Companies (Electricity, Water, Gas, etc)
  • Healthcare Authorities & Medical Service Providers
  • Education Authorities & Academic Institutions
  • Social Programs & Services
  • Financial Services, Banks, Insurance, etc
