Video: VEON Chief Technology Officer explains the re-birth of Vimpelcom

Yogesh Malik, CTO of VEON, the new name for Vimpelcom, has outlined how and why the operator has changed in an exclusive video interview.

The exec was on hand to elaborate on the new platform that is powering VEON, which was unveiled at Mobile World Congress.

Malik reveals how the new platform has been designed to “unleash a whole new ecosystem of microservices” from taxis and food to logistics.

“The telco model in its current state will not survive,” Malik said.

“We need to move on.

“Of course, connectivity is needed but we have to get closer to the customer… and VEON is a platform that enables us to do that.”
