World-class partnership for Anam and Innovation Value Institute (IVI) at Maynooth University

September 2018. Dublin, Ireland. Anam is delighted to announce a strategic partnership with the renowned Innovation Value Institute (IVI) at Maynooth University focused around innovation in Advanced Data Analytics, Artificial Intelligence, Machine Learning and Predictive SIM Box Detection. Backed by international industry leading experts, IVI has earned a world-class reputation for its work in the area of digital business transformation.

The partnership with IVI will ensure Anam’s fraud detection portfolio remains first choice of Global Mobile Operators for A2P monetisation.  This exciting new collaboration is part of Anam’s Innovation 24/7 initiative – involving the participation of leading external industry experts in this field.

Spearheaded by Professor Martin Curley, Chair of Anam’s Innovation programme, the company has built close relationships with third level academic research institutions in Ireland and in particular with IVI, which was co-founded by Intel Corporation and Maynooth University.

The Innovation Management Assessment provided Anam with a benchmark of the current internal perception of innovation, along with recommendations and actions towards the development and implementation of a capability improvement plan.

Speaking at IVI’s Annual Member Summit in Croke Park, Anam’s Chief Operations Officer, Alan Darcy, said: “The innovation capability was already present but we just weren’t capitalising on it across the business. Anam’s partnership with IVI focuses on the application of their IT-CMF Framework assessment to drive results. We have been working with the IVI to implement a number of structures in order to further develop the culture of innovation in their offices and has already reaped some very valuable outcomes right across our business.”

Commenting on the partnership, Prof Curley said: “In the creation and delivery of our products and services we keep a constant eye on how innovative techniques can result in better ways to do things – better for our customers and better for our business.  Embracing and reaping benefits from this culture of creative thinking has enabled Anam to achieve its leading market position and is essential to maintaining our competitive lead in growing our business in an expanding market”.
