The integration combines the powerful forces of the Snowflake Data Cloud and Tealium CDP to accelerate CX across the entire customer journey

San Diego, May 16, 2024 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Tealium announced today that it is one of the first customer data platforms (CDPs) to seamlessly connect to Snowflake’s Snowpipe Streaming API, offering industry-leading customer data collection and activation capabilities. Tealium’s CDP, powered by Snowflake, streamlines the process of landing low latency customer behavior data into the Snowflake Data Cloud to power analytics, AI, and customer-360 initiatives, allowing enterprises to better serve and engage their customers.

“At the heart of any CX strategy, is your data. CDPs and cloud data platforms are powerful catalysts for managing, analyzing, and activating customer data successfully to achieve this. And although unique on their own, together, they become a powerful force. That’s why Tealium and Snowflake are truly better together, providing a centralized consented data hub combining the benefits of historical data, real-time behavior, and utmost flexibility,” says Bob Page, Chief Product Officer at Tealium.

Real-time access to customer data is crucial for organizations to stay competitive and deliver exceptional customer experiences. Tealium’s integration with the Snowpipe Streaming API enables businesses to capture, process, analyze, and activate data efficiently. This powerful combination allows organizations to unlock valuable insights, enhance personalization, and make data-driven decisions, ultimately driving growth and customer satisfaction.

The integration leverages the power of a real-time CDP coupled with Snowflake’s elastic performance engine to drive customer data capabilities, including:

  • Establish unified and actionable customer views to power real-time engagement, leveraging enhanced identity data in Snowflake
  • Fuel and activate AI initiatives across the entire data infrastructure 
  • Minimize wasted time on data wrangling for more strategic and higher-quality insights 
  • Reduce regulatory risk by enabling consented data collection and activation, honoring customer privacy preferences across the entire journey
  • Improve ROI and achieve business goals through enhanced measurement and data-driven decision making

“As third-party cookies phase out and privacy regulations intensify, the demand for secure, privacy-first, real-time data solutions has never been greater,” said Onil Gunawardana, Head of Product Management, Marketing Data Cloud, at Snowflake. “Tealium’s advanced CDP with consent management, integrated with Snowflake’s Snowpipe API, provides enterprises with immediate access to cleansed, high-quality, first-party data. This seamless connectivity not only speeds up data ingestion for AI and improves customer experiences, but also ensures that data usage remains compliant within Snowflake’s robust analytics environment, elevating customer data strategies with unmatched security and efficiency.”

The integration also equips teams with widened flexibility, allowing them to augment customer data with AI, fueling models with clean and consented data. With every business having an AI mandate, the biggest challenge being faced during initial adoption is access to AI-ready data. The Tealium and Snowflake integration enforces enhanced data quality and governance, which supports successful AI implementation across the enterprise.

Braving the extreme: Deriv-sponsored Patagonian expedition Kahuna and its impact on climate science

  • Deriv’s CSR sponsorship programme supports the Kahuna team in collecting essential environmental data and improving global understanding of climate change.
  • In partnership with OSER and Cheer Up, the environmental expedition aims to uplift and educate young patients and students.

CYBERJAYA, Malaysia, May 16, 2024 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — As Deriv gears up to celebrate 25 years of innovation and responsibility, it proudly marks this milestone through a series of new initiatives that will have an impact in 2024 and beyond. The Kahuna sponsorship supports scientific research and community projects that provide educational value and inspire positive action towards protecting the environment.

Deriv recently sponsored the Kahuna team to carry out an environmental research expedition in Patagonia. The environmental expedition aimed to investigate the presence of microplastics and black carbon in the snow. These substances are critical indicators of environmental pollution that affect climate change.

The team partnered with the Argentinian Institute of Nivology, Glaciology, and Environmental Sciences and sought community outreach through collaborations with charitable organisations OSER and CheerUp (affiliated with CentraleSupelec).

Seema Hallon, Chief Human Resources Officer of Deriv, shares, “The 25th anniversary is an opportunity for Deriv to recommit to the things that matter to us as an organisation. Investing our CSR efforts in meaningful projects such as the Kahuna expedition is our way of contributing to the efforts for a sustainable future for the planet and communities.”

The expedition began in mid-January in Puerto Murta, Chile, with a team consisting of Baptistin Coutance, Robin Villard, Thomas Jarrey, Vincent Lavrov, and Yvan Lazard.

The route took them across Lago General Carrera, through Rio Baker into the Pacific fjords, along the Campo De Hielo Continental, ascending Volcan Lautaro and Cerro Francisco Moreno, where bad weather conditions led to an early ending of the journey.

Robin Villard shares, “The expedition was a success. The samples collected are in good condition and are scheduled for analysis in May and July. By the end of the summer, we should have results on the presence of microplastics in the ice field below. That’s a huge success.

“Our scientific research aimed to collect snow samples for analysis to determine the level of microplastics. Simply put, the samples will be examined under a microscope in the lab to see if there is significant pollution from microplastics in the snow.”

Expedition outcomes:

  • Research impact: The Kahuna team successfully collected and analysed samples from the region, providing valuable data for ongoing climate studies.
  • Community impact: Through real-time updates and subsequent presentations, the environmental expedition will provide educational and motivational experiences to young cancer patients and underprivileged students once their documentary film is ready.

The expedition faced challenges — adverse weather conditions and dangerous terrain, but could complete their research objectives effectively.

PTA Announces Unlicensed RLAN Operation (Wi-Fi 6E) in 6 GHz Band in Pakistan

The Pakistan Telecommunication Authority (PTA) announced 6 Gigahertz (GHz) spectrum band for unlicensed operation for RLAN in Pakistan. With unlocking of this band, Pakistan has become the 10th country in Asia Pacific to embrace 6 GHz for Wi-Fi. Currently, only 60 Countries worldwide have unlocked 6 GHZ (full or partial) for RLAN (Wi-Fi) services. This announcement was made in an event titled 'Unlocking Pakistan's Connectivity: Enablement of Next-Gen Wi-Fi in 6 GHz Band'. Speaking on the occasion, Chairman PTA Major General (R) Hafeez Ur Rehman, said that this development has positioned Pakistan as a regional frontrunner in embracing next-generation RLAN (Wi-Fi) technology, joining a select group of forward-thinking nations in Asia to unlock the transformative potential of Wi-Fi 6E. In the event, speakers from META, Dynamic Spectrum Alliance (DSA), Jazz, Nayatel and Huawei shed light on the benefits of embracing Wi-Fi 6E in Pakistan. It is pertinent to mention that, currently, Wi-Fi in Pakistan operates in two bands: 2.4 GHz and 5 GHz, with available bandwidths of 100 MHz and 150 MHz, respectively. However, these Industrial, Scientific and Medical (ISM) bands are accommodating multiple applications, including everyday technologies like microwave oven, bluetooth, and cordless phones, co-exist with Wi-Fi, resulting in congestion. WI FI 6E will overcome the congestion and latency issues. PTA, under the government's vision of 'Digital Pakistan,' aims to ignite a wave of digital innovation to empower businesses and bridge the digital divide by providing more reliable and high-speed internet access, ultimately fostering a more inclusive digital economy in Pakistan.

NCERT Prepares Guidelines to Safeguard National Critical Information Infrastructure

The National Computer Emergency Response Team (NCERT) has released Critical Information Infrastructure (CII) Guidelines, which have been distributed to all federal ministries and departments. Sources told Propakistani that NCERT has also written to these ministries and divisions, urging them to identify critical infrastructure in line with the new guidelines. According to sources, Critical Information Infrastructure (CII) includes assets, networks, systems, processes, information, and functions essential to the nation. The incapacitation or destruction of these elements would significantly impact national security and the economic and social well-being of citizens. CIIs are characterized by essential interdependencies and critical information flows. Under the national cybersecurity policy, NCERT defines CII as any computer system or network vital for national security or the economic and social well-being of citizens. Federal ministries and divisions are tasked with identifying critical infrastructure base d on NCERT's guidelines. Public sector organizations will compile lists of such infrastructure and submit them to NCERT, which will then designate them as CII under CERT Rules 2023. According to CERT rules, the National CERT will recommend both public and private infrastructure for critical infrastructure status to the relevant authorities when necessary. The National CERT is responsible for developing grading criteria to classify public CIIs and will offer services according to these rankings. Additionally, the National CERT will coordinate and support private-sector CII organizations in handling security incidents. The CERT rules stipulate that the concerned ministry designate public or private infrastructure as critical, in line with the relevant clauses of the Prevention of Electronic Crimes Act (PECA) and the National Cyber Security Policy (NCSP). These designations will be reviewed annually. Any infrastructure can be declared CII based on its sensitivity or criticality and the potential impact of its compromise. The National CERT may recommend to the Ministry of IT and Telecommunication (MoITT) or the relevant ministry to designate public or private infrastructure as critical. A dedicated CII CERT will be established to develop grading criteria for public CII and manage them according to these rules and the National Cyber Security Policy. The CII CERT will also support private-sector CII organizations in handling security incidents. Until an independent CII CERT is established by MoITT or the concerned ministry, the National CERT will serve as the interim CII CERT. Source: Pro Pakistani

The Supreme Court was informed by the Higher Education Commission (HEC) on Wednesday that 66 out of 154 public-sector Higher Education Institutes (HEIs) across the country are currently without a vice-chancellor (VC) or rector, or have individuals serving in these roles on an ad hoc basis. The revelation came during a hearing for a petition filed by the All-Public Universities BPS Teachers Association (APUBTA), represented by its president, Dr. Samiur Rahman in front of a three-judge bench, led by Chief Justice of Pakistan Qazi Faez Isa. The petition raised concerns about the substantial number of universities operating without legally appointed VCs, prompting the HEC to present the report. Supreme Court | hafiz-e-quran students | 20 extra marks According to the HEC report, the situation is particularly worrisome in Punjab and Khyber Pakhtunkhwa, where a significant portion of HEIs lack permanent VCs. In Punjab, 29 out of 49 HEIs have VCs serving on an acting charge basis, while in Khyber Pakhtunkhwa, 16 o ut of 32 HEIs face a similar scenario. The report also highlighted vacancies in key positions in several universities across Balochistan. On a positive note, the report indicated that in Sindh, the majority of universities have regular VCs, with only a few operating with acting VCs. Similarly, all universities in Azad Jammu and Kashmir have VCs serving regularly. In response to the concerning situation, the Supreme Court directed the respective governments to expedite the process of appointing VCs and rectors in the vacant positions. Chief Justice Qazi Faez Isa expressed regret over the decline seen in various sectors of society, emphasizing the importance of addressing such issues promptly. Additionally, the SC instructed the HEC to provide comprehensive data regarding the ratio of academic to administrative staff at universities and the status of vacant positions for director finance and examination controller. The court also sought information on the financial resources generated by universities indepen dently and the funds received from the government. Source: Pro Pakistani
