London and Beijing, 11th February 2016 – AsiaInfo has announced its plan to build a world-class business internet platform based on Amazon Web Services (AWS) infrastructure with AWS Inc.’s assistance on development, training and marketing. The goal is to help the telecommunications industry and enterprise customers drive more efficient operations and management by transforming their IT environments using the AWS Infrastructure.
The new Business Internet Platform enables telcos and other companies to develop new products and services faster that better serve their customers, and remain competitive in the rapidly changing global economy.
Yadong Jin, CTO at AsiaInfo, and Alex Yung, corporate vice president and Managing Director of AWS China, signed the cooperation agreement that states the two companies will team on specific technology innovation, market development activities, and professional training supporting the delivery of AsiaInfo’s Business Internet Platform on a global scale.
AsiaInfo's Executive Chairman Dr. Edward Tian said: “We are building on our solid foundation of large system software and services, and converging big data, network security and Internet innovation. We are constantly exploring brand new business models, promoting industrial innovation and cross-boundary integration, and striving to build a business ecosystem powered by the Business Internet. This collaboration with AWS Inc. is critical and makes our vision of ‘building the Business Internet’ a reality.”
“AWS is committed to helping our customers and partners drive innovation and IT transformation by leveraging the AWS Infrastructure,” said Adam Selipsky, Vice President of Amazon Web Services, Inc. “Working with AsiaInfo underscores the importance of helping telecommunications and enterprise companies innovate in their markets by leveraging the AWS Infrastructure to deliver faster and more flexible transformation IT infrastructure.”
“By removing complexity, companies are focusing their time and resources on adding real value to their business, and to those of their customers,” he added.
