Interview
Lee Sung-jae, Research & Development Team Leader of Mobidoo
Please tell us about the company and the provided services.
“New Experience in Everyday life”
With the development of information and technology, many devices are connected and the world is gradually becoming more connected into one integrated, communication network. Mobidoo is a company made to create these new experiences in our daily lives by reading the flow of the society. We are trying to provide a new experience to people by developing ‘SmartSound,’ a technology that carries information through sound waves out of hearing range and delivers it. Going beyond the limitations that current technology such as NFC, Bluetooth, or beacon have, it is used in diverse places such as simple payments, advertisements, IoT and access systems, with just a speaker and without any other hardware or device required. Also, recently, we’re preparing a new form of e-commerce service. It is a platform service for the millennial generation and Generation-Z who are familiar with new information and technology. We aim to provide new and interesting experiences of shopping to consumers who are more familiar with pictures than words, and videos than photos. We look forward to your interest in it.
Why did you choose the NAVER Cloud Platform?
We need to deal with many international regulations in order to provide independent services in the domestic fintech market.
At the end of last year, regulations on using financial services in fintech were relaxed, so we considered adopting a domestic cloud service. As a result of evaluating many cloud companies, we adopted it as its cloud allowed easier expansion of services from domestic to overseas.
What NAVER Cloud Platform services are you currently using and what help have you had since using it?
We’re using the NAVER Cloud Platform for various objectives.
Firstly, we're using the region service in order to smoothly cooperate with the client company's developers for our SmartSound service. We arranged our products to overseas servers to enable the fast co-development.
Secondly, it's fintech services. Originally, we provided security for only user apps through security solutions adopted internally, but we really liked how the NAVER Cloud Platform provided a stable security service and dealt with problems by informing the infrastructure manager swiftly. When fintech companies in Korea try to use cloud services, they need to select one that has a Korean security verification because of government regulations. When evaluating security, it was good that NAVER Cloud Platform's professionals actively listened to our difficulties and dealt with them.
Thirdly, it's a service for our Saucelive (live commerce) services. It’s a newly opened service, but from its developing stage, we’ve been establishing our API, security, user verification, and streaming services, and were able to use NAVER Cloud Platform to successfully open it. We’re cutting costs as well as enhancing performance by using many different functions such as server, autoscaling, load balancer, cloud for MySQL, Redis, CDN+, monitoring, SENS, object storage, NAS, certificate manager, and DevOps.
For anyone who is considering overseas expansion of their start-ups, there are many issues to be evaluated for adopting a cloud solution. NAVER Cloud Platform has many support systems that can provide satisfactory services.
What are the distinctive features or advantages of NAVER Cloud Platform?
It's pretty much the only domestic cloud service that could compete with overseas cloud companies.
The cloud market is ever-changing, and among many companies that were evaluated for adoption, it was the only company that offered diverse services and options for which we could give the highest score. Moreover, what was great was that they swiftly dealt with problems that start-ups like us ran into, and guided and advised us. We also liked that if there were things to improve internally, they shared the problems with the manager in charge and solved them together.
What kind of services do you want to provide using the NAVER Cloud Platform in the future? A. The live commerce service we started recently is still in its starting phase. As the one who develops and manages infrastructure, I hope to be able to provide a safe and stable service by making it possible to deal with high user traffic flexibly and by using many services. Also, I want to provide a business that makes active use of region for a stable service, by working with many domestic and international fintech companies."
