Tencent executives have told employees that the company’s silo culture, which helped create its hugely successful WeChat product, will need to change to a more collaborative approach if it is to succeed in the future in areas such as AI and cloud computing.

The Shenzhen-based company aims to break up in-house fiefdoms and promote more cooperation across different groups as part of a business restructuring that has set the direction of the company for the next two decades.
