WhatsApp is gearing up to finally monetize its messaging app by charging large enterprise businesses for tools to better communicate with customers. While I was studying engineering, I was certain that I didn’t want to pursue my career in the same field. I was anxious about what I wanted to do and approached my uncle, who at the time was very happy with his business. He suggested that I try selling online. That idea caught my interest immediately and I got in touch with the Prione team. The moment I met them, I stopped feeling anxious as they explained everything in detail, gave complete assistance and the perfect launch to sell online. They ensured that I understand how to sell online properly, earn profits and constantly expand my business. Because I belong to a small city, I was really excited that I could sell nationally and expand my product categories in such a short time span.
The ability to monitor the health of business services is a key advantage of having a service-alignedâ€ view of IT. Underpinning this service-aligned view is a concise, accurate, real-time mapping of applications, their supporting IT components, and their inter-relationships. Once these maps are bound to real-time data from IT service monitoring and event management systems, an accurate, always up-to-date measurement of the health of each business service is readily accessible, including the criticality and priority of incidents affecting service health. Ideally, this information is presented in an intuitive dashboard that lets IT staff see the health of business services across the enterprise at a glance.
When Facebook acquired WhatsApp for $19 billion in 2014, the companies said they wouldn’t put ads in WhatsApp because it would degrade the experience. But it also ditched its $1 annual subscription fee, leaving few monetization options beyond charging businesses for tools. The introduction of display ads and sponsored messages to Facebook Messenger may indicate a relaxation of WhatsApp’s stance against ads.
