Moving to Cloud Could Be a Crucial Business Response to COVID-19 | Tempemail – Blog – 10 minute

Sourced from Tapscape

The current lockdown is testing the ability of businesses to adapt quickly to changing market conditions. Companies that have embraced more digital ways of working have been far less impacted. Several slower respondents are turning their focus away from only the cost benefits of cloud-based solutions to the agility and responsiveness that they now require. The more connected businesses are those that will survive.
Several years ago, SilverBridge identified the cloud as a key business driver for the financial services industry and therefore also for its own business. It has formed an integral part of its strategy of providing the industry with solutions for modernisation and digitalisation. With Microsoft being a strategic partner for many years, it made sense for SilverBridge to align with its strategy and work closely with them to enable their joint clients.
“We implemented our first cloud-based client project on Microsoft Azure in 2015. This was a few years before the datacentres were available in South Africa and at a time when most financial services companies were still very cautious and sceptical about the cloud. Since then we have worked closely with Microsoft to move more of our solutions to Azure and enable our clients to not only modernise their core line of business systems but also unlock the benefits of digitalising their processes. We now deliver a complete cloud-based digital suite of products to our clients,” says Lee Kuyper, COO at SilverBridge.

At a time when engaging with customers and staff is moving from physical to online, it is important to identify how best to apply digitalisation in a practical and people-centric way. Intermediaries, for example, can effectively onboard customers digitally and access critical information from any physical location. This involves replacing the previously physical processes of application and fulfilment with a completely digital experience.
“Those insurers who have already begun their digital transformation would have already put the necessary measures in place to enable staff to operate remotely. We can see that our clients who have partnered with us in using our cloud-based digital solutions still have complete access irrespective of the user’s physical location, ensuring the business can function as normal.”
However, SilverBridge says, those insurers who have been unable or unwilling to make the move to the cloud and who have been reliant on their own physical infrastructure to manage and engage customers will struggle to effectively do business during the lockdown.
“SilverBridge is now working closely with those customers who still have on-premise deployments to try and fast track a move to the cloud. This will not only modernise the way they work but will also accelerate the digitalisation of their businesses, something which every business would anyway have to do at some point in the future,” adds Kuyper.
Security must form part of this as employees access critical systems, with sensitive customer information, remotely. Microsoft has already invested over $1-billion in developing security solutions for the Azure cloud, one of the key reasons that SilverBridge has chosen to partner with Microsoft in this regard. They have also largely addressed any regulatory and data protection concerns that businesses might have. If any concerns remain, they have the expert resources to assist clients to effectively deal with them.
The lockdown is giving insurers no choice but to think differently about how business can be done. This includes adopting a more digital and modern approach to prove value in a very uncertain climate.
“Post the pandemic, the world, and business, in general, will be completely different. Companies across industry sectors will embrace online solutions to improve efficiencies and deliver value faster. The next few weeks will see cynics testing a digital way of working and realising that this is the future of the industry. People understand this on a conceptual level but need to move past the expected and perceived barriers that exist. They need to start working with the practical elements of modernisation and digitalisation while dealing with these barriers as they arise.”
Something positive that could come out of the current crisis, is that more businesses will embrace the cloud and digital transformation in more direct, practical, and beneficial ways.

YouTube profits from videos promoting unproven Covid-19 treatments | Technology – Blog – 10 minute

YouTube is profiting from videos promoting unproven coronavirus treatments, a new report has found, as the company struggles to crack down on misinformation.

The Google-owned tech company is running advertisements with videos pushing herbs, meditative music, and potentially unsafe over-the-counter supplements as cures for Covid-19, according to a report published on Friday by the Tech Transparency Project, a not-for-profit watchdog organization.
The report found at least seven videos hawking such dubious treatments with advertisements from sponsors including Donald Trump’s re-election campaign, Facebook, Liberty Mutual Insurance, the streaming startup Quibi, and Masterclass.com.
After being contacted by the Guardian, YouTube removed four of the videos in question for violating its policies against Covid-19 misinformation. Three of the videos remain as they are not promoting misinformation directly but offering wellness tips, according to a spokesman.
“We’re committed to providing timely and helpful information at this critical time, including raising authoritative content, reducing the spread of harmful misinformation and showing information panels, using WHO data, to help combat misinformation,” the spokesman said.
He said YouTube had removed thousands of videos related to misleading and dangerous coronavirus content in recent weeks.
Many social media platforms have struggled to quell coronavirus misinformation, as the number of people infected tops 1 million.
Companies including YouTube may be forced to rely more heavily on artificial intelligence tools to moderate content while employees are forced to work from home, said Megan Lamberth, a researcher at the Center for a New American Security, a Washington DC-based thinktank.

“Since the beginning of the pandemic, we’ve seen an enormous rise of misinformation on online platforms,” she said. “Social media companies have tried to respond to the deluge of misinformation, but in many cases, their moderation efforts have not been sufficient.”
TikTok has partnered with the World Health Organization to provide accurate information to users and has put a disclaimer on all videos using the #coronavirus hashtag with accurate information about the pandemic. Other sites, including Facebook, have pushed back against dangerous false cures including cleaning products and cocaine.
The global pandemic has created a situation ripe for the spread of false cures, said Lisa Fazio, a psychology professor at Vanderbilt University who studies misinformation and how it spreads.

“If the most profitable videos are those that feel good and provide easy answers, then it’s highly likely that they will contain misinformation,” she said. “In reality, the current situation is complicated and has few easy answers.”
YouTube initially prohibited the monetization of videos about Covid-19 under its “sensitive events” policy, which bars advertisements on videos regarding armed conflicts, terrorist acts, and “global health crises”.
However, it reversed that policy on 11 March, saying it wanted to “make sure news organizations and creators can continue producing quality videos in a sustainable way”. It then enabled coronavirus video ads for “a limited number of channels”, and on 2 April it expanded monetization of content mentioning or featuring Covid-19 to all creators and news organizations.
Doing so may be encouraging misinformation as a means of making profit, said the Tech Transparency Project report.
“In lifting restrictions on advertising in videos about the coronavirus pandemic, YouTube has made disinformation lucrative for some unscrupulous content creators and a liability for the brands that unwittingly support them,” the report said.

How the Covid-19 crisis locked Airbnb out of its own homes | Technology – Blog – 10 minute

“You would not have an empire without us,” an Airbnb host shouts down the lens in a video addressing the company’s billionaire co-founder and chief executive Brian Chesky. “It’s our homes on your platform. It’s our face on millions of listings. It’s our soul that brings the magic … It’s our place that makes you money.”

lol airbnb landlords are losing their minds because people canceled their trips due to the uh. global pandemic pic.twitter.com/2DeNluRuie
March 22, 2020

The man in the video is pulsating with anger at Airbnb’s decision to allow guests to cancel bookings for trips starting before 31 May with a full refund due to the coronavirus outbreak. The anger is so raw many commentators have dismissed it as a parody, and the Guardian was unable to confirm it’s authenticity.
But Airbnb’s army of 700,000 hosts are distraught at the income they are losing as a result of the company’s generosity to guests. Chesky this week apologised and said the company would spend $250m (£200m) covering 25% of what hosts would have been paid for reservations between 14 March and 31 May.
An additional $10m relief fund is being made available to “super hosts” offering grants of up to $5,000 for “hosts who hurt the most”. Airbnb founders will also take no salary for six months, and top executives will have their salaries halved.
“Although it may not have felt like it, we are partners,” Chesky said in email to hosts. “When your business suffers, our business suffers. We know that right now many of you are struggling, and what you need are actions from us to help, not just words.”
Airbnb has built up reported cash reserves of $3bn from booking fees charged to both guests and hosts. It collected revenues from the fees in excess of $4.8bn last year, according to Reuters. Hosts are charged 3% of every booking, while guests are charged up to 14.2%.
The hangover from the coronavirus pandemic is likely to last far longer than 31 May or whenever governments lift movement restrictions. Hosts report empty booking calendars stretching throughout the summer, and research by analysis website AirDNA shows bookings in some cities has fallen by as much as 96%.
For hosts who occasionally rent out their spare room in the style of a real bed & breakfast the lost Airbnb income due the coronavirus is a frustration.
But, for those who have built up mini (or in some cases not-so-mini) property portfolios that rely on a constant stream of guests churning through Airbnb apartments in Bath, Barcelona or Berlin, the prospect of weeks or months without guests spells financial disaster.

64% rise in rental properties across #Dublin in midst of #Covid_19 crisis according to property website @daftmedia as landlords start withdrawing their rentals from short-term listing sites like #Airbnb and are offering them into the market instead.#HousingCrisis #CoronaCrisis pic.twitter.com/Wfj56HaNLC
March 21, 2020

It is also a disaster for Chesky, 38, and the large number of Airbnb’s employees who hold stock options. The company was lining up for a stock market flotation this year, which some investors hoped would value the 11-year-old tech giant at up to $42bn – even though the Wall Street Journal reported the business lost nearly $320m in just the first nine months of last year.
In a video presentation on Thursday, Chesky told staff the company had lowered its valuation to $26bn, down from $31bn when it last raised money from investors in September 2017, according to the Financial Times.
Airbnb employees have long been pushing executives to press ahead with an initial pubic offering (IPO) because stock options granted to seasoned staff start to expire in November 2020. Those shares could be worthless if the platform is not trading on the public market.

“They are stuffed, the IPO just can’t happen,” Richard Holway, chairman of analyst firm TechMarketView, said. “Airbnb is in the worst of the worst situations. Unlike other tech firms, like Uber which can do deliveries instead of driving people, it can’t diversify. There’s nothing Airbnb can do to make money.
“Everything indicates that Airbnb income around the world has just stopped,” he said. “It [coronavirus and lockdown] has exposed the Airbnb business model, and it’s going to pull thousands and thousands of people down with it. People [hosts] have gone into it as an absolute business and they’re in a very, very difficult situation.”
To try and make some income from their empty properties landlords have flooded the rental market with their Airbnb flats. On Edinburgh’s Princes Street, for example, there are 209 Airbnb listings on a road of just 494 homes. Property portal Rightmove said the number of new rentals coming on to the market in the week the UK lockdown started increased by 45% in London, up 55% in Brighton, 62% in Edinburgh and 78% in Bath. It’s a similar story the world over with a 61% increase in Dublin and 41% in Prague.

Holway said many hosts are reliant on Airbnb income to pay mortgages on not one but several properties, while others “rent flats off commercial landlords and then seek to make a profit renting it out on short lets on Airbnb – that’s not going to happen now”.
Sheffield based entrepreneur Alex Milburn claims to have made “£1,000,000 in Airbnb sales in 12 months” and now markets his “rent to rent” strategy in one-day seminars costing £997 (plus VAT). He promises, in YouTube videos, he can teach others how to make six figure sums “with very little or none of your own money”.
One Airbnb host rented out 881 properties in London in a single year making revenue of £11.9m, according to AirDNA. The unnamed person was said to be highest-earning Airbnb landlord in the world in 2017.

E- Consultation and Telemedicine in India in the midst of COVID-19- Tempemail – Blog – 10 minute

Read Article
India is one of the largest and fastest-growing markets for digital consumers, with 560 million internet subscribers in 2018, second only to China. Indians have 1.2 billion mobile phone subscriptions and downloaded more than 12 billion apps in 2018. India is digitising faster than any other country and there is plenty of room to grow: just over 40 percent of the populace has an internet subscription. These statistics are interesting to note for a developing country like India.
At a time, when social distancing is among the major measures used to fight COVID-19 pandemic, telehealth is stepping-up as a key technology for safe and efficient communications. The World Health Organization mentioned telemedicine among essential services in “strengthening the Health Systems Response to COVID-19” policy.  For us at Cloudnine, we have always been looking at an ecosystem which comes together for the customer. In order to assure steady and quick medical services available to its customers, Cloudnine Group of Hospitals, India’s leading chain of maternity, childcare and fertility care group of hospitals headquartered in Bengaluru, launched its teleconsultation service with doctors in response to the growing public health concerns caused by the spread of the COVID-19 virus. This first of its kind service in the maternal and child healthcare which was  a part of the emergency response measures for new coronavirus infectious disease based on the guidelines released by Medical Council of India in partnership with NITI Aayog. The service has been made available across all our 14 hospitals and 3 clinics in India thereby allowing all the customers to consult doctors from their homes via video thereby avoiding all the non- essential travel to the hospital. Doctors will advise and follow up with patients according to their conditions and symptoms. Customers may use this service for follow up consultation on their ongoing treatment as well. This value-added health service shall be available on mobile phones through “Its our Baby” app which has currently 100k users. This will include doctor consultations, electronic prescriptions and electronic medical certificates.
At Cloudnine, providing digital solutions has always been core to our business that, unlike a lot of others, we really didn’t look at it (digital) as being a separate entity but instead we brought that on completely in-house. The introduction of extensive telehealth capability adds to our comprehensive functionality for practitioners and patients. For customers, the technology partnership helps to connect their doctor at their fingertips — saving on travel and waiting time. It also provides incredible convenience for people who are working to see a practitioner without needing to leave home to do so.  We have never been shy of looking at new-age companies, new-age startups and new-age ideas to get incorporated which helps us to serve customers better. We encourage people to innovate in technology, bring in cutting edge stuff, something new to the industry.
In my view, telehealth can directly influence flattening the curve of demand on health systems worldwide, slowing transmission and spreading incidence over a longer time period. Almost all telehealth providers have already faced a tsunami of demand, which may be better described as a global real-time piloting and go live. Therefore, if telemedicine is replaced by 30 to 40 percent of in-person outpatient consultations, India could save up to $10 billion and improve care for the poor and those living in remote areas. Consolidating individual patients ‘lifelong medical history into an electronic health record (EHR) can help healthcare providers make more accurate diagnoses and lower the risk of medical errors. Today’s healthcare system is facing many challenges globally, including growing aging populations, a rise in chronic conditions and co-morbidities, and increasing constraints on the healthcare workforce. As the industry works towards achieving the quadruple aim to help address these the industry must embrace the shift to digitisation. Technology is something that touches every customer’s life especially in maternity and when it comes to healthcare it should not be something which is non-digitized for this millennial customer.
The COVID-19 pandemic is a challenging test for all solutions to prove how reliable and agile they are in the new circumstances.

What brands can learn from startups’ responses to Covid-19- Tempemail – Blog – 10 minute

Should corporations be taking learnings from – and working alongside – startups to ready their coronavirus business response efforts? Nestlé -marketer-turned- incubator boss Pete Blackshaw thinks so.
Having previously led FMCG digital strategy, Blackshaw is now chief executive of Cintrifuse; a syndicate ‘fund of funds’ and startup accelerator created by P&G, Kroger, Western & Southern and other major entities in the Greater Cincinnati region.
Earlier this month, the group unveiled its own resource guide for startups looking to scale back against the backdrop of a pandemic, but behind the scenes, its community has been quick to get to work projects Blackshaw believes bigger, more established firms can take lessons from.
“We want to use what our startups do as inspiration. What big companies need more than anything right now is confidence and inspiration.
“Startups have the power to spark a different kind of thinking and get big firms to lather up to a discontinuous step-change in terms of the way they transform,” he said in an interview recorded as part of Tempemail’s Digital Transformation Festival.
Cintrifuse currently has $126m dollars invested in 26 VC firms. This includes AM Health, which was one of the first players to bring certified home Covid-19 testing kits and New York-based pharmacy app Medley which has been “rewriting the rules” around how medical supplies are delivered.
Blackshaw believes big brands have a lot to learn from these fast movers.
“What’s happening right now is a tragedy and we [as an industry] have to double down and address it. And we have to use some of the innovation we’re seeing as inspiration and motivation to move faster.
“Who would have believed that habits could shift so quickly and startups could pivot so quickly in this direction? We’re all saddled down by cynicism, old rules, legacy processes and we need to ask how to take what we’re seeing in this crisis and use that energy to think differently.”
He finished: “I see [startups] as playing a critical transformation role. For a lot of companies out there, we want to show them that startups are moving incredibly fast and they can too move the needle and help solve this horrible crisis.”

With the surge in contactless payments amid the COVID-19 outbreak, how will you keep your money secure and safe?- Tempemail – Blog – 10 minute

Speed and convenience have rapidly shaped the future of digital payments in India. The Government has taken multiple initiatives to encourage people to move towards digital payments and move India towards a less-cash economy. While the number of digital transactions have picked up, people are still apprehensive about using these methods in order to transact. But with the outbreak of COVID-19 and with the need for social distancing to prevent the spread of the virus, contactless payments is an ideal way to transact.
The World Health Organization (WHO) has also recommended “contactless payment methods” whenever possible, to avoid spreading the virus. This should be considered an opportunity for India to move towards adopting digital mode of payments.
Unfortunately, fraudsters are also keeping pace with the growth of digital payments, and are on the look- out for weaknesses to exploit. It is extremely crucial for us to understand the numerous fraudulent vulnerabilities associated with digital payments and take necessary actions.
There are multiple ways to avoid these frauds and keep your money secure and safe.
∙Never install or use applications and apps other than the officially recommended ones: Post demonetization, a lot of these fraudulent apps came into being. It is critical that one doesn’t install or use such applications which can trigger fake transactions or even skim data from their device. It is best to download only popular apps and mobile wallets.
∙Do not fall for spoofing where the websites whose names “sound” similar to the real ones: There are hundreds of spoof websites or web pages tricking customers looking for help to reveal their account or card details. For instance, irdaionline.org is not the official website of IRDAI, but it poses as one.
∙Never click on Phishing SMSes: Phishing is the most common type of fraud for wallets and all online transactions. Never provide login credentials or other details on an email / SMS regardless of the context of the conversation in an email. Do not click on links in any SMS received unless you are convinced it is from a trustworthy source such as your banker. Such URLs often promise cashback, income tax refunds, and even purport to be from government agencies such as EPF.
∙Never give out your OTP or PIN or password: This is the most common type of fraud which a lot of people fall prey to. Banks or Credit Card Companies or any such trustworthy agency will never have to ask you for such details. Instead, they would use IVR or some such system to eliminate interference and fraud to anyone who calls and asks, even if they are known to be from a trustworthy agency.

Keep your passwords difficult to guess: Most of the people use the same password across different platforms so that it is easy for them to remember. However, this is the most dangerous thing to do. Passwords must be difficult to predict by third-parties and should not contain names of family members, friends or special dates known in public such as birthdays, anniversaries etc. Even if one of them is compromised, other linked accounts too stand the risk of being hacked.
∙Apart from these frauds, there are various other frauds associated with UPI payments, none of which are issues with UPI itself but are modes of deception. Here are a few of them:
o In this case as well, do not click on links in any of the SMSes, especially those from unknown agencies. It could be an attempt to skim money off your account. Also remember, the name is not everything on the Internet. www.my.banker.com is not the same as www.mybanker.com. It is crucial that you are aware of the official website and official email ID of your banker, stockbroker etc.
o UPI handles can be deceptive. Just because a handle has the word NPCI, BHIM, Govt units or Bank names in it, it does not make it authentic as many tricksters create such handles to make you reveal your card or account details.
o You must make sure that you never enter UPI PIN without fully understanding that your money will be debited from your account, and knowing who it will be credited to. You are not required to enter the PIN for getting money credited to your account!
o Never send / forward any SMS text from your device, since fraudsters often cajole victims into sending text messages from their device which will bind your device with a fraudulent identity, and it then becomes easy for them to skim money off their accounts.
oDo not install and use any remote screen mirroring tool as these tools are indeed convenient for genuine use cases such as remote technical support. But if fraudsters get access to your device remotely, the sky is the limit to what they can do.
Contactless payments are not only one of the most convenient modes of payments but also by far the safest and secure, and in the present situation the best mode to conduct transactions while maintaining social distancing. Being mindful of the aforementioned safe practices, customers can avoid falling prey to someone’s unscrupulous intentions and enjoy the benefits of this futuristic method of transaction.

Frontline NHS footage features in new government film as Covid-19 cases escalate- Tempemail – Blog – 10 minute

As coronavirus cases increase by the day, the NHS has urgently adapted its strategy to make the ‘Stay Home’ message harder hitting by featuring footage of frontline staff.
Created by MullenLowe, the latest campaign parks the chief medical officer’s direct address in favour of real footage of NHS workers at the frontline, reminding those at home of the severity of the crisis.
The film also features real clips from other aspects of the ongoing pandemic, including those clapping in support of the health service, abandoned streets due to lockdown, those taking food responsibly to vulnerable adults, and people taking their one hour of exercise a day.
While this change of direction ditches Chris Witty’s address, actor Mark Strong’s voice is still present.
Against the backdrop of footage, his reads out: “Coronavirus is a national emergency – life-threatening for people of all ages, everywhere in the UK. To help save lives, stay home.
“Only go outside for food, health reasons or work – but only if you cannot work from home. Stay home. Anyone can get it and anyone can spread it – stay home. Protect the NHS front-line staff working to save lives.”
The work is accompanied by display and social media activity that urges people to ‘act like you’ve got it.’

Since the outbreak began, the government has been scrambling to relay the public message that people must take the outbreak seriously. Despite this, coronavirus cases are accelerating by the day, highlighting the need for the government to ramp up its approach and make its messaging more direct and urgent.
The previous TV campaign followed the Prime Minister’s televised address, whereby Boris Johnson announced stricter measures to combat the spread of the coronavirus outbreak.
