Chicago, Illinois (June 14, 2016), The Federation for Internet Alerts (FIA) today announced that its efforts underway for “Around The World in 200 Milliseconds” made the Innovative Technology Lions shortlist. The Innovation Lions celebrate pioneering technological creativity.
FIA is demonstrating the relationship between a big idea and radical tech; that is, a bespoke solution that fulfills an unaddressed need and delivers a product and service in a newly-invented way using adtech. FIA’s Hub is a free cloud service that provides robust scalability, availability, performance and reliability to alerting authorities and their local communities. The Hub supports the pulling and immediate pushing of alerts from the Hub to those who are in need of critical and life-saving information.
FIA will be presenting the Hub to the Cannes Lions Jury on Sunday, June 19th, in Cannes. Innovation Lion winners will be announced on Wednesday, June 23rd, as part of the Cannes Lions International Festival of Creativity.
