Enabling Business Success in Digital China
Lin Zhiyuan, Business Development Manager, Singapore
Is your business is looking at establishing a business presence in China and around APAC, developing a go to market strategy, or figuring how to deliver the best online experience for your customers?
Since the early 2000’s a web presence has been the cornerstone for most consumer businesses. Unfortunately, when it comes to maintaining a web presence in China, there is little written guidance available in English. China has a system of regulating websites which requires every commercial website hosted in Mainland China to be registered and licensed there. With the help of advisors from Alibaba Cloud and our partners, we can help you smoothen the application process.
In this webinar, we shall examine compliance and regulatory issues that are specific to the country, and explore various multiple IT architectures suitable for different business needs.
We shall also share how our comprehensive cloud infrastructure and unrivaled expertise create efficiencies that will save time and provide a better online experience for your customers in China and around APAC.
How Organization Creates a Competitive Data Edge
Pradeep Menon, Director of Big Data and AI Solutions
Digital transformation has data running through its veins. Data is the new oil, and AI refines the new oil. However, to harness data in this new world, organizations need to create data-driven strategies. Organizations need to embrace new technologies and adopt new data architectural patterns to harvest their data assets.
Successful AI transformations require data, business and cultural transformations, including:
- Identifying use-cases and articulating business needs.
- Breaking down data silos and identifying high-value data.
- Building or buying the right tools and adopting a fail-fast approach.
- Integrating AI into workplace processes and optimizing human/machine interfaces.
- Adopting an open, collaborative culture and building trust in AI insights.
This talk will cover how organizations can leverage cloud, big data and AI technologies to harness data and create value out of it. This talk will also discuss how data products in Alibaba Cloud can be woven together to create an agile data-driven architecture.
