This MoU is to create synergy
between I-ON’s proven unstructured data management software and UComm’s

fundamental development of the industry as well as prepare the fourth
industrial revolution of Korean golf industry

collects golfer shot data and I-ON will provide real-time streaming service with
the data using its ticket and event marketing service TAMM under carrier
