This latest issue of Mahindra Comviva’s quarterly magazine Vritti presents a selection of articles covering NFC, the Internet of Things, the growth of the mobile wallet market in the Middle East and the role of mobile money in rehabilitating refugees in conflict zones.
The ‘Demystifying the Internet of Things’ chapter sees how the future growth of IoT is more likely to come from applications in commercial and industrial environments, healthcare and public safety.
The magazine goes on to examine how the concept of transferring cash directly to refugees’ mobile money accounts, rather than providing food supply, has multiple advantages for those affected by conflict and the local economies.
Vritti also takes a look at how the mobile wallet and banking revolution is “well and truly underway” in the GCC region (Bahrain, Kuwait, Oman, Qatar, Saudi Arabia, and the United Arab Emirates), and how a “customised stance” is needed to take advantage of how this revolution takes shape in the years to come.
This magazine has been produced and sponsored by Mahindra Comviva and has been approved by the NFC World editorial team.
