Friday, 13 January 2017

PUTRAJAYA: The collaboration between Alibaba Group’s cloud computing arm Alibaba Cloud, Prestariang Bhd and Singapore’s Conversant Solutions Pte Ltd marks Alibaba Cloud’s first venture into the education sector for the international market.

The 3 parties signed a memorandum of understanding yesterday to build an integrated education platform known as EduCloud.

EduCloud, a cloud-based platform for education and related services, will be launched in Malaysia, with eventual plans to market it to other parts of Asia-Pacific.

The collaboration leverages on each party’s strengths, namely, Alibaba Cloud’s cloud computing capabilities, Conversant’s digital media enablement, as well as Prestariang’s talent and education customer base and deployment expertise.

EduCloud entails campus management, teaching and learning, entertainment, digital payment, as well as online services and applications.

With more than 6 million students in schools and higher learning institutions in Malaysia, EduCloud stands to shape Malaysia’s education system through the digitalisation of education, cultivating mobile-first cloud-enabled future entrepreneurs, establishing lifelong partnerships with education communities, as well as encouraging students to drive new ideas and innovation.
