Tencent says in the future the cooperation will be extended to Asia Pacific and around the world to jointly explore the development of localised digital solutions, and to leverage the innovations, resources and advantages of both parties.
Since April this year Tencent Cloud has launched new data centres in Bangkok in Thailand, Jakarta in Indonesia, Singapore, Tokyo in Japan, offering more localised services to local enterprises.
Under the alliance, Tencent Cloud and BCG say they will carry out cooperation in various fields, including finance and retail, together to facilitate digital transformation in enterprises, and to provide enterprise architecture design for enterprises’ access to the cloud.
“Amid the pandemic, leaders of every industry are exploring ways to bolster the digital transformation of enterprises,” Tencent and Boston Consulting said in a joint statement reeased on Tuesday.
“However, the transformation requires professional consulting agencies to advice on many aspects such as corporate strategy, business model and organisational transformation, among others.
“It also requires strong technical service providers to offer solutions based on new technologies such as cloud computing, big data, AI and IoT, to enable the launch of digital projects.
“In addition, talent has been a key element in digital transformation – together, both parties will offer staff enablement solutions, moving employees’ work and training online through tools such as Tencent Cloud’s AI, Tencent Agile Product Development (TAPD) and WeCom, to enhance collaboration, efficiency and creativity of employees,” the two companies concluded.
