AI, Digital (remote) Employees, 5G (eSIM, IoT), quantum/cloud computing, BIG data, Machine Learning, Metaverse, Green Tech. The biggest changes and opportunities are still ahead of us, and technology, innovations and digitalisation are one of the most important trends in our region and a driving force.

Why is the topic you’re speaking on so important right now?

This is a great time to invest and develop new aaded value services based on eSIM technology,  as the value of the global eSIM market is expected to increase from $4.7bn in 2023 to $16.3bn by 2027, according to a recent study by Juniper Research.

New generation eSIM and SIM based Mobile Identity solution with improved cryptographic capabilities enable users to give legally binding e-signatures and securely use any e-service. To date, the World Bank estimates that there are 1 billion people without official proof of identity worldwide. For the economically excluded, SIM and eSIM based Mobile Identity could help close the digital divide by providing a secure enough digital ID to open a bank account or open the company. This will offer the potential users globally from capital cities to rural areas the fully digitized experiences they’re looking for. The digital onboarding process (also referred to as electronic Know Your Customer or eKYC processes) could be performed entirely from a user’s own device.
