Alcatel-Lucent Enterprise is making progress becoming a communications enabler and thereby an enabler of digital transformation via Open Rainbow, their "enterprise Whatsapp" solution which allows a company to customize communications solutions for various markets.
We first covered it in 2016 and there are now 40-50 low-level APIs allowing integration with applications in hospitality - room service for example, retail and more.
Moreover, the company tells us their solution is superior to OTT solutions such as social networks as the customer relationship stays within the control of your organization. Also, with routing, scheduling and communications control - you can be sure you're on the right side of various regulations which your industry may have to comply with.
The company's "no-memory APIs" allow fully anonymized calling for solutions which require such privacy. For example public services in France... Job matching services require such controls.
In addition, Ranbow has chatbot support and will soon support IoT.
The bottom line, is Alcatel-Lucent Enterprise has an enterprise-grade CPaaS solution which companies and integrators can leverage to provide flexible and secure solutions which allow for more rapid digital transformation.
