XCMG is building a highly inclusive industrial cloud platform based on its complete data and information systems, as part of its partnership with Aliyun.
Called the XCMG-Cloud, it will be used to share massive data and support further global convergence.
XCMG hopes that the solution will establish a new model for future development of the Chinese manufacturing industry that merges internet technologies and a platform-based company, revolutionising the traditional product and market models that rely heavily on core technologies.
In 2009, XCMG upgraded its information system, linking research and development, production and supply chain, as well as gathering 150 terabytes of industrial big data. The system is now applied to multiple areas such as intelligent manufacturing, remote diagnosis and after-sales service, and will become the foundation of the preliminary basic cloud platform of XCMG-Cloud.
XCMG will also construct a sharing service centre together with Aliyun, which will include divisions for user, algorithm, trade, assessment and logistics to achieve modular development and management. All groups on the industrial chain will be able to take advantage of the open applications brought by XCMG-Cloud, including cloud, e-commerce, intelligent supply chain, intelligent factory and social service.
"Cloud computing has greater market potential in China" commented Jin Jie, General Manager of Aliyun Nanjing branch. "It takes time for enterprises to understand and accept new technology, but XCMG share our ideas and goals of forging China's Predix platform."
"By creating an unprecedented cloud computing platform in Chinese industrialised application and forming the first innovative cloud 'ecosystem', XCMG will lead the transition and upgrading of China's manufacturing enterprises," said Wang Min, Chairman and President of XCMG.
