joyn Innovation Challenge, the GSMA competition for mobile & web apps developers.

The GSMA has announced the joyn Innovation Challenge, an initiative to encourage innovation based on joyn.
Developers will have the opportunity to use a real joyn enviroment and using the API build innovative use cases on top of the messaging experience. The best new ideas will be showcased on the GSMA’s exhibition stand at the Mobile World Congress.

Developers will have access to the joyn "Innovation Accelerator" a global access to a live GSMA Rich Communication Services (RCS) network where they create their own use cases on RCS APIs, Solaiemes is technology partner, see the banner :-), and test their use cases in a trusted and safe environment. GSMA explains in the website that the use of the Innovation Accelerator will be free and you do not have to enter the competition in order to use it. We consider this initative a very good move.

We want to highlight that API becomes key in joyn from the beginning and it means that joyn aims to be seen as a platform, our vision being evangelized the last years. It is great that the industry realizes that it is not about replicating telco version of great OTT messaging products that going beyond and creating an open platform based in a natural experience as the messaging.
