AMSTERDAM -- Yandex (NASDAQ: YNDX) has purchased Israeli startup KitLocate, the developer of an energy-efficient geolocation technology for mobile devices. The KitLocate team has now fully joined the staff of Yandex.

KitLocate’s technology can be applied in mobile applications for which data on a user’s movements are essential, in order to offer services at the right location and at the right time. It is based on statistical analysis and allows location-based apps to less frequently request the device's geographic coordinates via GPS or GLONASS – a battery-consuming process.

KitLocate is already well known in a number of markets and is used in applications to find parking spaces, for example, and in the payment services such as IsraCard. Yandex will distribute the technology on the international market and also use KitLocate to improve its own services, including in the personalisation of mobile search and targeted advertising.

A CSP's digital transformation involves so much more than technology. Crucial – and often most challenging – is the cultural transformation that goes along with it. As Sigma's Chief Technology Officer, Catherine Michel has extensive experience with technology as she leads the company's entire product portfolio and strategy. But she's also no stranger to merging technology and culture, having taken a company — Tribold — from inception to acquisition (by Sigma in 2013), and she continues to advise service providers on how to drive their own transformations. This impressive female leader and vocal advocate for other women in the industry will join Women in Comms for a live radio show to discuss all things digital transformation, including the cultural transformation that goes along with it.
