Bringing about a Culture of Change

Written by

Op-ed Article by Sheikh Sultan bin Ahmed Al Qasimi Chairman of Sharjah Media Council

 

When we think about a culture, it is primarily defined in our minds by its people, their unique characteristics and values. Travelling to a new country, the foremost and overarching impression is gained from our interactions with the local people. Our perception of the place is only marginally impacted by its aesthetics, landscapes, infrastructure and public services offered, and largely by the people’s attitudes, their hospitality and generosity…or lack of them.

What makes a successful smart city? The idea of a smart city entails a synergy of various technologies that are deployed to transform cities or particular areas into more connected and safer environments to live and work. Technically that means that by using actual devices and sensors city can optimize the performance of city operations and services.

While all businesses wish for smooth sailing, waves of trouble are likely to roll through at some point along the journey. Once upon a time, in an "offline" era, sticky issues could be tightly managed and quietly dealt with. Yet in the digital age, people - and businesses - don’t often screw up in silence. In fact, once the pot boils over, we are no longer just worrying about cleaning up the mess within the immediate area - we are looking to cyberspace with panicked visions of how to tackle a communications crisis of exponential proportions.

As cellular service providers increasingly must compete in today’s brave new world of over-the-top (OTT) services and a mobile broadband explosion that features all-you-can-eat, unlimited data plans, mobile carriers can no longer operate on previous business models. Further complicating the challenge, new digital, cloud-based players, such as Amazon (AWS), Google (Cloud) and Microsoft (Azure) have changed the service delivery game with agile, pay-as-you-grow and on-demand pricing models for telecom services. Adding to the competitive landscape, cable/MSOs have begun building a fixed mobile network with Wi-Fi access points and hot spots enabling new services such as voice-over-Wifi (VoWifi).

An air purifier has many benefits, but not all units are equal. From asthma to pollution levels, here’s what you should know before putting your money down explains TR Ganesh, General Manager, Blueair Middle East.

 

As the weather begins to shift and the cool winters make way for fog and dust storms, UAE residents are bracing for another round of allergies, asthma and seasonal respiratory disorders.

How Marketers can start integrating AI in the work?

Written by

By Unni Kurup, Serviceplan Group Middle East

 

AI holds great promise for making marketing more intelligent, efficient, consumer-friendly, and, ultimately, more effective. Perhaps more pointedly, though, AI will soon move from being a “nice-to-have” capability to a “have-to-have.” AI is simply a requirement for making sense of the vast arrays of data — both structured and unstructured — being generated from an explosion of digital touch points to extract actionable insights at speeds no human could ever replicate in order to deliver the personalized service consumers now demand.
