New on the MEF Minute
A2P messaging is on the up. It could grow even faster if the market could classify traffic and introduce tiered pricing. But how? In this exclusive video, Max Pellegrini, president of mobile services at RealNetworks, explains one approach…
Imagine if there was only one price for a plane ticket. Everything the same, no matter the leg room, the entertainment, the food, the boarding. It would be wasteful and inefficient for everyone. Passengers would wait around for longer. Airlines would miss out on a huge amount of revenue that customers would happily pay.
In this guest post, Founder and Executive Chairman of digi.me Julian Ranger discusses the concept of a trust framework for personal data, along with the potential for use of an internationally recognised symbol such as a kitemark.
The need for a trust framework to ratify who we can safely charge with holding even the most sensitive personal data from every area of our lives is becoming increasingly urgent.
As trust becomes the key consumer differentiator in an ever more data-driven and personalised world, how we identify those who will be good stewards of our digital identities has never been more important.
