IN the shadow of uncertainty and doubt cast by the Covid-19 pandemic, businesses have to learn to become agile by shifting their focus to online resources, in order to survive and even thrive.
While major corporations are relatively safe as most, if not all, of them have the infrastructure and knowledge for the shift, many small and medium enterprises (SMEs) still struggle to adapt towards these new models.
In fact many have already fallen victim to the economic onslaught caused by the pandemic, especially now as the surge in infections have called for a tightening of business hours and movement.
Further providing the know-how and even tools to start the journey towards revolutionising businesses for tomorrow, the Alibaba Cloud Summit Live! is set to help business owners “Accelerate Digitalization” through cloud and data intelligence.
Held for the second time in Malaysia, the first being back on Aug 1,2019, the live summit seeks to assist participants in resetting, rebuilding and reigniting their businesses for the next opportunities through digital innovation technologies.
It will feature new product launches, keynotes from senior leaders at Alibaba Cloud Intelligence, and share key takeaways from industry and technical experts on various verticals.
Summit participants will have firsthand knowledge from industry luminaries, technologists and early adopters' sharing their transformation stories.
They also get to explore the real-world digitalisation challenges and integrated approaches from experts and learn how to integrate the latest technology solutions and tools to power their businesses.
They will also be shown how to tackle critical infrastructural requirements and expand their core capabilities.
Scheduled to begin in the afternoon at 2pm, the event will kick off with a plenary session with an introduction by Alibaba Cloud Intelligence International Business Unit general manager Selina Yuan, who will elaborate on the “Accelerate Digitalization” theme.
This will be followed by an industry solutions launch by Alibaba Cloud Intelligence International Industry Solution Director Ye Huang, who will speak on "Thriving In The Digital Era".
Next will be some product launches on Alibaba’s cloud infrastructure, data management and cutting-edge video solutions, all of which will present participants with the potential and opportunities that the Alibaba Cloud products can offer.
These include introductions such as “Cloud Infrastructure [to] Accelerate Business Digital Transformation”, “One-Stop Cloud Native Data Management”, “Comprehensive Data Management Platform and Enterprise Best Practices” and “Building Video Innovation Solutions with Alibaba Cloud”.
The summit will then move into an interactive mode with breakout sessions on All in Cloud, Data Intelligence, Industries Digitalisation Trends, Asia Accelerator Solutions, Digital Sports Technology, Alibaba Cloud for Developers, Alibaba Cloud Partners Solutions and Customers Engagements.
Within each subject, different team leaders will then discuss topics relevant to the subject.
