Complementary advantages between digital intelligence and the cloud
Develop the industrial Internet market together to boost the digital transformation of industries
With the changes in the market environment, the gradual maturity of 5G, cloud computing, IoT and other technologies, and the burst of demand for “digital transformation” in vertical industries, the “consumer-oriented Internet” has shifted to the “industrial Internet” step by step, and the transformation and remodeling of industry chain and value chain of vertical industries currently have become major issues in the industry. Compared with consumer-oriented Internet, the demand side of the industrial Internet market has extremely high requirements on technologies, products, and customized services of the supply side. Therefore, the cooperation and complementarity between supply-side companies allow them to make full use of their advantages to guarantee the deliverables to customers, and to maximize the value of services.
As a leading provider of software products, solutions and services in China, AsiaInfo is committed to driving the transformation and upgrading of industrial customers in communications, finance, energy, transportation, postal service, broadcasting, and government affairs by relying on its “carrier-grade” products, services, operations and integration capabilities. Gao Nianshu, Executive Director and CEO of AsiaInfo, said that as AsiaInfo and Tencent Cloud are leading companies in their respective fields, the signing of the agreement in this day opened a new chapter in the cooperation between the two parties for the industrial Internet era and the digital transformation market of vertical industries, which is bound to set up a model of cooperation between technology companies in the context of “Digital China”.
“As a pioneer of the industrial Internet, AsiaInfo and Tencent Cloud are highly consistent in the goal of boosting domestic industrial upgrading.” Qiu Yuepeng, Vice President of Tencent and President of Tencent Cloud, introduced that Tencent Cloud is currently rooted in government affairs, education, transportation, medical and other physical industries, and has established several digital transformation standards.
