EMC's Transition to SMS for Real-Time IT Alerts
EMC, a global leader in cloud computing, data storage, and data virtualization, was struggling with an inefficient and slow method of alerting its 68,000 employees about IT system updates. The traditional method involved drafting an email, proofing it, getting approval from several stakeholders, and finally sending it. This process was not only labor-intensive but also unreliable as it depended on the user's email being unaffected and the user actually opening and reading the email. After sending 1.2 million alert emails in a single month, EMC decided to find a more efficient and immediate way to alert employees. The challenge was to find a solution that was not only faster and less labor-intensive but also globally available and scalable to EMC's needs.
SchoolCloud: Revolutionizing Parent-Teacher Meetings with IoT
The traditional model of parent-teacher meetings in schools has been fraught with inefficiencies and logistical challenges. These meetings, typically conducted in-person, often involve inaccurate scheduling, overrunning of meetings, and long waiting times for parents. The advent of the COVID-19 pandemic and the subsequent closure of schools further exacerbated these issues, necessitating a shift towards virtual meetings. However, the existing video conferencing platforms were not equipped to handle the unique requirements of parent-teacher meetings, such as tight scheduling and the need for visual cues to indicate the next parent waiting. SchoolCloud, an edtech company, recognized these challenges and sought to develop a solution that could streamline the process of conducting parent-teacher meetings in a virtual environment.
Enhancing App Engagement and User Verification with Twilio: A Duolingo Case Study
Duolingo, a globally recognized language learning app, aimed to integrate social sharing into their platform to boost user engagement. The challenge was to create a secure and efficient way for users to connect with their friends on the app. The existing methods of finding friends via a search engine or Facebook were either slow, lacked meaningful validation functions, or were hindered by tightened privacy policies. Furthermore, as Duolingo sought to add more robust social sharing features, the need for enhanced security to protect users' information became paramount. The challenge was to find a solution that could easily integrate with Duolingo's existing technology stack and provide a geographically agnostic way to validate users and connect them with their friends.
