Le Mali devient l’un des premiers pays d’Afrique à rendre visible ses TICS

BAMAKO, Mali, le 7 Juin 2023, /African Media Agency/- En mars dernier, N-Soft a implémenté une nouvelle solution de gouvernance pour l’internet mobile au Mali. Les tests de cette nouvelle solution de données ont été officiellement approuvés par les experts de l’AMRTP et de N-Soft.

Grâce à l’installation de ces solutions avancées de gouvernance numérique, le Mali se positionne comme l’un des pays pionniers en Afrique pour renforcer la transparence et la supervision de ses politiques nationales. Cette évolution offre un avantage considérable aux institutions financières mondiales et aux investisseurs qui recherchent une visibilité claire sur des secteurs spécifiques de l’économie afin de prendre des décisions d’investissement éclairées et d’accorder des prêts dans un environnement commercial fiable.

Depuis 2019, N-Soft supervise la voix mobile, les SMS et les transactions de Mobile Money au Mali, gérant par exemple un volume mensuel de transactions de mobile Money d’une valeur de 3.3 milliards de dollars par mois.

En signe de confiance, N-Soft s’est vu accorder une prolongation du contrat initial et fournit désormais une visibilité en temps réel sur les données mobiles, notamment en ce qui concerne le volume (téléchargement/upload) et la bande passante par application (OTT, Web, Streaming, etc.).

Cette extension du projet initial vise à superviser l’Internet mobile et à calculer en temps réel l’utilisation du volume et la bande passante générée par les applications mobiles Android, IOS, etc., afin de fournir une visibilité sur la bande passante réelle.

« N-SOFT est très honoré de la confiance que lui accorde l’AMRTP, renouvelée par la signature de ce projet. Ce projet vise à doter le Mali d’outil de régulation précis, lui donnant la visibilité totale sur les volumes internet consommés par les nationaux. 

Il ne s’agit pas de contrôler les usages que font les Maliens de l’Internet, mais de mesurer la bande passante globale utilisée par le Pays, de classifier les applications OTT (eg : WhatsApp, YouTube, Netflix, Spotify etc..) en fonction de leur adoption par la population, et d’une multitude de questions similaires. 

Le Mali compte aujourd’hui parmi nos partenaires privilégiés et nous continuerons de mobiliser toutes nos ressources pour lui apporter la visibilité totale sur son environnement numérique » explique Alex-Ariel Tchetgnia, Vice-Président des Services chez N-Soft.

N-Soft supervise les secteurs numériques depuis plus de dix ans ; ses solutions de gouvernance sont les meilleures du secteur, éprouvées dans de nombreux pays. Elles aident les gouvernements à lutter contre l’économie informelle et l’évasion fiscale en fournissant une visibilité complète sur l’économique numérique.

Les solutions N-Soft couvrent la télévision payante, l’industrie des jeux et des paris, l’importation de téléphones mobiles, la publicité numérique, les services financiers et tout autre secteur faisant partie de l’économie numérique.

La transparence apportée par les outils N-Soft optimise la mobilisation des ressources domestiques en permettant aux gouvernements d’enrayer les fuites de revenus. Seul un suivi minutieux de toutes les transactions garantit aux gouvernements la perception de tous les impôts qui leur sont dus.

N-Soft has been managing mobile voice, SMS, and mobile money in Mali since 2019. For example, they are overseeing USD 3 billion in mobile money transactions per month. 

As a vote of confidence, N-Soft was granted an extension of the initial contract and now provides real-time visibility on Mobile Data service with regards to volume (download/upload), and the bandwidth per application (OTT, Web, Streaming, etc.)

This service extension also aims at overseeing mobile internet and calculating, in real-time, volume usage, the bandwidth generated by Androids’ mobile apps, apple, etc. to bring visibility over the effective bandwidth. 

“N-SOFT is highly honored by the trust bestowed upon it by the AMRTP, reaffirmed by the signing of this project. This project aims to provide Mali with a precise regulatory tool, giving it complete visibility into the internet volumes consumed by its nationals.

It is not about controlling how Malians use the internet, but rather measuring the overall bandwidth used by the country, classifying OTT applications (e.g., WhatsApp, YouTube, Netflix, Spotify, etc.) based on their adoption by the population, and addressing a multitude of similar questions.

Mali is now among our privileged partners, and we will continue to mobilize all our resources to provide it with complete visibility into its digital environment.” Explains Alex-Ariel Tchetgnia, VP of services at N-Soft.

Since N-Soft has been a Digital Sector Supervisor for more than ten years, its governance solutions stand out in the GovTech sector as tried-and-true and reliable.

N-Soft solutions can also be used in other sectors besides mobile telephony. In addition, they supervise pay TV, the gambling and betting industry, mobile phone importation, digital advertising, financial services, and any other sectors part of the digital economy. 

The transparency brought by N-Soft tools can be used for the volume of transactions, as in Mali’s case, or for revenue mobilization to allow governments to pinpoint revenue leakages to maximize revenue mobilization. Such thorough tracking ensures that governments can collect all taxes owed to them.
