Project Latte: How Microsoft wants to integrate Android apps into Windows 10

Windows 10 may soon be able to run mobile apps designed for Android. Update on the technical details that allow this porting.  Microsoft is working on a software solution that would allow app developers to run their Android apps on Windows 10 with little or no code changes. How? 'Or' What ? By packaging them as an MSIX app package format and allowing developers to submit them to the Microsoft Store. The project is codenamed " Latte ," according to Windows Central, which says it will go into production next year.

Tanzania: towards 90% digitization of CRDB Bank

Customers of this bank will soon be able to avoid spending more time in its branches and engage in other production activities. This is in any case the objective aimed by the dematerialization of this banking establishment.

In its commercial strategy for 2022, it is about meeting customer needs with a single click. To achieve this, its leaders are betting on "Popote Inatiki" a special campaign that aims to see more applicants use the digital platform to boost the efficiency of service delivery. This, in a simplified way and to save time spent in physical establishments.

"Thanks to digital transformation, a customer does not need to go to branches to access services in urban, rural, home or street, regardless of day or night," said Dr Joseph Witts, the group's commercial director, picked up by the local press.

The digital platform currently available for CRDB customers is already accessible every day and at all hours. According to the bank, transactions are carried out digitally via SimBanking, SimAccount and Internet Banking, CRDB and TemboCard agencies via the shopping center (PoS) and online (electronic commerce).




Its chief commercial officer also claimed that over the past year, all of these digital service delivery systems have been upgraded. Now it's about educating customers.

In this mission Joe Bendera, the main marketing director of the company recognizes that young people are the most advanced in this field. A fact, which should allow him to reach all Tanzanians. He even counts on the influence of some local artists to raise awareness and educate the rest of the community on the use of electronic services.
