Syniverse’s Enterprise Messaging Services to Authenticate Global Myriad msngr App Users

Syniverse today announced a new multi-year agreement with Myriad Group to enable the authentication of global end users of the Myriad msngr app via Syniverse’s Mobile Enterprise Services. Myriad msngr has seen a steady rise in traffic, including a recent increase to 67 million registered users with significant peaks in Latin America.

As one of the region’s largest mobile messenger services, the agreement with Syniverse includes direct connectivity to numerous top-tier Latin American mobile network operators that enable increased speeds and stability for Myriad’s app subscribers.

“Syniverse demonstrated the agility and innovation needed to help us to simultaneously grow and streamline our business, opening up new growth opportunities around the globe,” said Stephen Dunford, CEO, Myriad Group. “As a result, our msngr subscribers, both new and existing, will benefit tremendously.”

When an end user registers with Myriad msngr over a mobile phone, Syniverse’s highly reliable platform will deliver a one-time verification code via SMS. The one-time code is delivered directly to the end user with low processing latency, subsequently allowing the user to complete the registration and activate the app.

An integral piece of the app registration process requires Myriad’s subscribers to receive SMS messages. Reliability is of critical importance. Syniverse has built a reputation for consistently delivering more than 700 billion messages annually in real time. By personalizing the user experience in the mobile moment, Syniverse’s services result in deepened customer touch points that increase brand affinity and revenue while promoting and protecting brands.

“With our work together, Myriad now has the means to seamlessly validate the identity of their subscribers via SMS anytime, and anywhere in the world to provide an extra layer of security that today’s mobile users are growing to expect with registration,” said Alfred de Cárdenas, President, Enterprise and Intelligence Solutions, Syniverse. “In tailoring the end-user experience, Syniverse can help increase loyalty and build brand advocates for Myriad msngr service.”

The agreement with Myriad continues a steady stream of Mobile Enterprise Services announcements, including agreements with Amazon China; U.K.-based mobile video service provider swanbay.tv; threaded messaging communication provider Boomerang; Chinese Internet portal Tencent; and Cleartrip, one of the leading online travel companies in India.

From simple text reminders to short video advertisements, the services empower mobile messaging operations to enable the reach, reliability and security that enterprises and over-the-top providers need to achieve business objectives. In addition to one-time passwords, Syniverse helps brands deliver other personalized, time-sensitive actionable information, including reminders, news of sales or promotions, weather alerts, public safety alerts and more.

Additional features include intelligent message processing, two-way messaging, and multilingual, multiple time zone support.

With more than 30 Kubernetes solutions in the marketplace, it's tempting to think Kubernetes and the vendor ecosystem has solved the problem of operationalizing containers at scale or of automatically managing the elasticity of the underlying infrastructure that these solutions need to be truly scalable. Far from it. There are at least six major pain points that companies experience when they try to deploy and run Kubernetes in their complex environments. In this presentation, the speaker will detail these pain points and explain how cloud can address them.
The deluge of IoT sensor data collected from connected devices and the powerful AI required to make that data actionable are giving rise to a hybrid ecosystem in which cloud, on-prem and edge processes become interweaved. Attendees will learn how emerging composable infrastructure solutions deliver the adaptive architecture needed to manage this new data reality. Machine learning algorithms can better anticipate data storms and automate resources to support surges, including fully scalable GPU-centric compute for the most data-intensive applications. Hyperconverged systems already in place can be revitalized with vendor-agnostic, PCIe-deployed, disaggregated approach to composable, maximizing the value of previous investments.
When building large, cloud-based applications that operate at a high scale, it's important to maintain a high availability and resilience to failures. In order to do that, you must be tolerant of failures, even in light of failures in other areas of your application. "Fly two mistakes high" is an old adage in the radio control airplane hobby. It means, fly high enough so that if you make a mistake, you can continue flying with room to still make mistakes. In his session at 18th Cloud Expo, Lee Atchison, Principal Cloud Architect and Advocate at New Relic, discussed how this same philosophy can be applied to highly scaled applications, and can dramatically increase your resilience to failure.
Machine learning has taken residence at our cities' cores and now we can finally have "smart cities." Cities are a collection of buildings made to provide the structure and safety necessary for people to function, create and survive. Buildings are a pool of ever-changing performance data from large automated systems such as heating and cooling to the people that live and work within them. Through machine learning, buildings can optimize performance, reduce costs, and improve occupant comfort by sharing information within the building and with outside city infrastructure via real time shared cloud capabilities.
