Following the launch of Jazz as Mobilink’s umbrella brand, Mobilink has now introduced ‘JazzCash’ as its brand name for Mobile Financial Services (MFS) to replace its Mobicash brand. The decision was made to further strengthen Jazz as a one-stop solution to cater to the wider needs of subscribers in a digitally progressive world.

Talking about the launch, Aamir Ibrahim, Deputy CEO & CCO – Mobilink, said:“The reintroduction of Jazz as the face of Mobilink’s digital journey meant a string of communication solutions under the Jazz ecosystem primed for the digital age.  In this way, our latest offering, JazzCash, is version 2.0 of our mobile financial service, Mobicash.”

 

“For our customers,Jazz is not just a SIM, it is a platform to further success. Through our combined product offerings under the Jazz ecosystem, we will aim for our customers to understand that that the device they hold in their hands has the power to change their lives and of those around them,” he added.

 

“In a world powered by the internet, it is imperative that we, as a nation, double our efforts to keep pace with the ever changing environment. Mobilink has taken great strides in this regard over the past few years, and the launch of JazzCash as a digitally powered mobile financial service enables us to cater to a larger unbanked market as smartphone usage increases across the country,” said Aniqa Afzal Sandhu, Head of Mobile Financial Services – Mobilink.

While talking about the diverse portfolio that JazzCash offers, she added, “Our ever growing product portfolio now includesDomestic Remittances, Transfers to and from Banks, Bill Payments, Mobile Top Ups, ATM Cards, Passport Fee Payment, Online Payment Gateway, Savings, and NFC payments& Life insurance.

Subscribers will have an option to pay through their JazzCash Mobile Account and Retailers. In addition, customers of other banks can also pay through Credit or Debit card.

Cloud computing is an online and internet based system or program that provides various forms of services. It works as Software, Platform, Infrastructure and Data. As a software, applications of software can be accessed provided by cloud computing. It also provides services as a Platform to others who want to establish and create their own services. Being an infrastructure, it is used to build data centers like power, hardware, networking, storage, distributed systems, scale etc. Cloud computing also imparts data, knowledge and intelligence by providing map, POIs, road networks, videos, pictures, history and etc .

To understand working of cloud computing, examples of Gmail, Yahoo mail and Hotmail can be inspected. Through these mail accounts, email and messages can be sent and are managed by email management software with internet connection. Likewise, through cloud computing one can easily store, share and avail the data given by cloud providers. It enables users and companies to enjoy its resources as a utility. It does not required maintenance and any effort from user end. It has infinite size. Its applications and services can be accessed from anywhere with internet connection. To avail its services, one has to just download cloud app, just open a browser, log in, and start working.

There are various benefits of cloud computing. On demand self service, broad network access, rapid elasticity, measured service and resource pooling are some of them. Through on demand self services, end users and customers can systematize and supervise their computing services. Services offered by Internet and Private Internet can be used with the help of broad network access. Pooled resources provide computing resources in the remote data centers.

Services of cloud computing are divided into private, public and hybrid forms. In private clod services, business data center is used to deliver data to end users.  In public clod services third party gives the cloud services on the internet. Amazon Web Services,  Google Compute Engine, IBM / Soft Layer, Microsoft Azure are some of public cloud providers. Hybrid Cloud services are combination of public cloud services and private cloud services. Hybrid cloud services are especially used by multinational companies who want public for their product consumption and marketing and also manage working employs for specific task through private cloud services. There is also a community cloud services that are shared and used mutually by two or more than organization.

Working of Cloud computing is classified into three models i.e. Software as a Service (SaaS), Platform as a Service (Paas), Infrastructure as a Service (Iaas).  Software as a Service (SaaS) model is used to provide software applications and backup on internet. These are called web services. These services are provided by Google, Microsoft, Zoho, etc . Through Platform as a Service (Paas), customers and end users can build their own applications on cloud computing. While Infrastructure as a Service (Iaas) provides storage and application program interface. Networking equipment, Servers, data center space , storage systems  etc are made available to handle  workloads. Software can also be deployed on the infrastructure.

On the whole, Cloud computing is very handy platform for individuals and organizations for their online requirements and services. But there are also security and privacy concerns. Cloud computing can be easily accessed by unsecured internet connections. Therefore appropriate protective measures must be taken before using services of cloud computing.
