The ability to place control of data back into the rightful owners' hands is the main reason that Macrocomm has selected ODE and will bundle the app into their offering to large enterprise customers.
TEMPE, AZ, February 10, 2021 /24-7PressRelease/ -- Open Data Economy (ODE) signed an agreement with South Africa's Macrocomm to deliver solutions to key partners in the Sub-Saharan region. They will provide the ODE Infinity platform to the Major Telecommunication network operators, large organizations in Financial Services, Healthcare, and State-owned enterprises as well as public sector organizations who are seeking to add value to their consumers by offering highly reliable compliance, data privacy, and monetization options for their data.
Data is becoming the currency of the modern economy. The use and abundance of Data have arguably contributed to its status as a valuable commodity. ODE (Open Data Economy) recently recognized as the Top 30 most innovative companies of 2020 by CIO Bulletin, is a revolutionary startup that is building a more equitable data economy for all, bringing digital data ownership and privacy back to individuals while enabling lean data science and organic compliance to enterprises.
The partnership with Macrocomm, a leading technology and IoT company in South Africa, helps organizations address critical technological challenges through a comprehensive portfolio of products and services. In 2020, South Africa enacted protection of consumers' personal information and with the increasing consumer concerns over privacy, the demand for an ODE Infinity platform is escalating.
In South Africa where privacy leaks have led to high numbers of identity thefts and even other crimes, protecting privacy is becoming vital. The ability to place control of data back into the rightful owners' hands is the main reason that Macrocomm has selected ODE and will bundle the app into their offering to their large enterprise customers.
"It is clear that South African citizens will benefit tremendously from the ODE solution as privacy protection is crucial in our developing economy. Right now, people live under the illusion of privacy, when in fact everything you do in the digital world is being monitored for commercial gain. The deployment of the ODE solution will help with the adoption of digital and IoT solutions, to deal with the new normal brought about by the Covid19 pandemic, by providing confidence to consumers that their personal data is protected. We want to give the consumers control of what they share and then get paid for sharing it. ODE makes good sense to us," said Sivi Moodley, Group CEO, Macrocomm.
