Tencent Cloud and Boston Consulting Group have announced a strategic alliance to bolster digital transformation.
Enterprises worldwide have been strengthening international collaboration to boost economic recovery in the post-pandemic era. Leveraging the innovations, resources and advantages of both parties, Tencent Cloud today announced its strategic alliance with the globally renowned Boston Consulting Group (BCG), cooperating in various areas, including finance and retail, to support enterprises in their digital transformation. In the future, the cooperation will be extended to the Asia Pacific and worldwide to explore the development of localised digital solutions jointly.
Amid the pandemic, leaders of every industry are exploring ways to bolster the digital transformation of enterprises. However, the change requires professional consulting agencies to advise 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.
Under the alliance, Tencent Cloud and BCG will carry out cooperation in various fields, including finance and retail, to facilitate digital transformation in enterprises and provide enterprise architecture design for enterprises’ access to the cloud. 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. These tools will enhance the collaboration, efficiency and creativity of employees.
In the future, the alliance between Tencent Cloud and BCG will be extended to Asia Pacific and the global market. Being one of the top five global cloud service providers, Tencent Cloud’s infrastructures have already covered 27 geographic regions on five continents. Since April 2021, Tencent Cloud has launched new data centres in Bangkok in Thailand, Jakarta in Indonesia, Singapore, and Tokyo in Japan offering more localised services to local enterprises.
As a global top management consulting services company established for more than 50 years, BCG is proud to add Tencent Cloud into its growing ecosystem of alliances. In 2020, BCG was recognised as a pioneer in the digital business transformation service industry by Forrester, an international authoritative research institution. Recently, it has been ranked as a leader in the digital strategy consulting services industry by IDC. Apart from the launch of digital centres in San Francisco and Paris, BCG has also launched a digital centre in Shenzhen, providing governments and enterprises in Greater China, Asia Pacific, and global customers with consulting services on digital solutions.
In the post-pandemic era, as every industry worldwide is accelerating its digital transformation journey, the internet infrastructure in the Southeast Asia region is still being developed. As a result, many enterprises are in need of technical support provided by cloud providers in their digital transformation. Leveraging the innovations, resources and advantages of both parties, Tencent Cloud will join hands with BCG to strengthen their cooperation in the international market, providing digital solutions to meet local needs and ultimately helping to boost economic recovery.
