Three keys to the digitalization of industries in 2021: efficiency, safety and symbiosis

In the past year, history has come to the fore, such as smart cities, smart manufacturing, digital logistics, smart medical care, and digital finance. . . . . . Everyone is the protagonist in it. 2021 has passed through the embrace of digitalization. The term “industry” has been re-cut and deeply understood. The scope it covers is no longer a single-dimensional production and manufacturing. At present, it also includes credit, efficiency, connection, Co-prosperity and other kinds of things.

In 2021, new infrastructure construction will take off, and industrial intelligence will be in full swing. The government and enterprises will jointly cultivate a fertile “digital soil”, so that the new technology of “walking in the cloud” can be integrated into the core scene of the industry more quickly, and “incubated in digital” “The demand for new business has been released to a greater extent. To break the old and create the new, for many companies, the digital transformation of the industry is no longer a single point application of digital technology, but a transformation and upgrading from the inside out, all-round, and the entire industry chain.

Policy-driven and industry demand jointly deconstruct the effectiveness of digital technology and industry integration. As a result, many traditional businesses have new opportunities to advance from linear growth to exponential growth under the “clustered” of new variables. More importantly, this has also made more and more market players more and more aware that only by actively embracing changes can they cope with the future when uncertain factors are proliferating.

Time has passed. At a sufficiently profound point in the history of countless industries, there are always people who choose to move forward and keep the new. And if you look back at today after many years, people will definitely have a deeper perception of how shocking the revolutionary innovations digital technology brings to the optimization and iteration of the current industry track.

01丨Digital technology stands in the center of the stage

Since 2021, the wave of digitization has been in the ascendant. Digital technologies represented by artificial intelligence, cloud computing, and big data are changing rapidly, supporting the digital development of the industry, and profoundly affecting and changing people’s lives. Among them, artificial intelligence technologies such as knowledge engineering and machine learning are empowering the acceleration of the digital transformation of the industry. From the perspective of domestic support for the technology industry in recent years, “let AI become the core productivity of the digital age” has moved from the height of top-level design. Established, as a new driving force for the development of the digital economy, AI has become a key infrastructure supporting and leading the development of the digital economy, emerging industries, smart cities, and smart society.

This is highly matched with the four major business segments of SenseTime, which has just landed in Hong Kong stocks, in the existing large-scale business landscape of smart business (ie corporate services), smart cities, smart life, and smart cars. As an AI algorithm provider, SenseTime has developed and provided a modular and flexible standard software platform based on the SenseCore large model based on the SenseCore model, and relied on the sales software platform to generate revenue.

“Born on the cloud, grows on the cloud”, cloud computing technology covering edge computing, hybrid cloud, and cloud native is regarded as the technical base of industrial digitalization. With the in-depth evolution of industrial digital transformation and the innovative development of the cloud computing market , The mixed use of public cloud and private cloud is adopted by more and more enterprises. In particular, the “cloud” and “edge” synergistic linkages to jointly release the value of data have become a consensus reached by the industry. Edge computing provides computing power for applications with the advantages of business real-time, data integration, innovative intelligence, and security protection, and assists the industry in digital empowerment. Yes. At this stage, edge computing has been widely used in vertical industries such as manufacturing, energy, public transportation, agriculture, healthcare, and education.

Looking at the current cloud computing track, in addition to the inherent giants such as Tencent, Huawei, Alibaba, Baidu, and, many vertical cloud players have also ushered in good growth, such as UCloud, Qingyun and so on. This year ByteDance has also made full efforts in cloud computing, and over a ten-year period, it will provide customers with “technology-driven, extremely cost-effective cloud”, “business value-driven cloud” and “open sharing cloud”. According to industry insiders, not only in 2021, but also in the next five to ten years, cloud computing will be the absolute home of enterprise development, and it will also be the gold nugget pool of Internet giants.

In addition to AI and cloud computing, big data including distributed databases, data twins, data security, etc. is also known as a booster for industrial digital transformation and coordinated development of the digital economy. In particular, distributed databases have been continuously applied in the financial and Internet industries due to their excellent elastic scalability, high reliability, low cost, and the ability to meet the needs of cloud computing and other scenarios, helping to promote the digital upgrade of the industry. Since 2021, distributed databases have become more deeply integrated with cloud natives, and the trend of separation of storage and computing has been realized.

Relying on big data technology, and under the upright innovation of many companies such as Yingpu Technology, Tongdun Technology, and Yingtong Technology, many digital solutions have emerged in the retail, medical, financial and even government fields this year. With the continuous surge in industrial demand and the further expansion of the scale of the digital industry, more innovative and integrated companies will emerge in the digital market in the future and continue to integrate into the wave of industrial digitalization.

02丨Continue to solve three key issues

Different industry characteristics, the landing posture of the digital strategy are also various. What are the problems that people are trying to solve through digital technology in the changing and unchanging?

You can find out from three key words: efficiency, safety, symbiosis.

# efficient

As we all know, efficiency is the key to business operations. Digitization first makes the target measurable, and the measurable can be continuously optimized. The result is to improve the efficiency of manufacturing, supply and demand matching, and maintenance services, which can ultimately reduce operating costs and improve corporate competitiveness. For example, most “we” have participated in this year’s JD Double Eleven. Behind the speed and passion we feel is that JD and JD Cloud help companies expand their service boundaries and operational efficiency to get rid of the inherent industrial problems and improve The best sample of digitization speed. Whether it is the initial construction of a logistics system, or today’s filling of cloud computing, or relying on AI to drive industrial manufacturing, behind each business is a dual step based on service and efficiency.

In particular, when JD Logistics goes public in 2021, the value of digital logistics has also begun to upgrade from continuous to continuous. Combining the Internet of Things technology with the Internet, connects information with traditional warehousing and transportation. Through the Sirius system, the density of storage and the efficiency of picking are improved, so that high-intensity services can gradually replace the original inefficient services. , So that the management efficiency of the customer’s integrated supply chain is once again improved. In the number of JD’s inventory turnover days, the digital effect brought by JD Logistics has also been demonstrated: Since 2012, has kept the inventory turnover days below 40 days, although the number of SKUs managed by JD is increasing, and it was self-operated in the last quarter. On the basis that the product has reached 10 million SKUs, still shortened the inventory turnover days by 4 to 30 days.

For another example, the domestic large aircraft manufacturer “Commercial Aircraft Corporation of China” uses AI vision technology to assist quality inspectors to catch material defects that cannot be detected by the human eye, increasing the defect detection rate to 99%. In the field of automobile manufacturing, some unmanned vehicles can complete a test of 10 million kilometers a day in a digital simulation environment. And the same test, if you rely solely on building prototypes and conducting them on the spot, you need to modify hundreds of cars, and it will take several years to complete. The simulation system combined with high-precision maps, virtual reality, game engines and other digital technologies not only saves the cost of building prototypes and burning fuel, but also greatly improves the test efficiency and avoids the risk of on-road testing.

The purpose of the Industrial Internet is to reduce costs and increase efficiency. To be “efficiency” from “digital” is an inevitable choice for industry reshaping. And such digitalization also emphasizes improving the efficiency and flexibility of organizational operations. The Beijing Metro Company has 450 subway stations and 50,000 employees. To ensure the normal operation of the subway, many face-to-face offline meetings and communication were required in the past. During the epidemic, through Tencent meetings remote collaboration, 142 large-scale meetings were held up to a day to carry out real-time work arrangements and achieve flexible scheduling. In order to create a more offline communication and collaboration experience, Tencent released its accumulated audio and video technology capabilities for more than 20 years, with a minimum delay of only 80 milliseconds, and fixed-point noise reduction for common meeting noises such as keyboard sounds and coughing sounds.

Starting from 2021, Dingding has turned efficiency into productivity. Through the implementation of AI translation, voice shorthand, real-time subtitles, dialogue robots, multi-modality and other technologies in voice AI and visual AI, AI has become ordinary Productivity tools at your fingertips. New productivity tools such as DingTalk are a strong support for the digital transformation of enterprises. They can help enterprises move towards “two digitizations”-organizational digitization and business digitization, and through the mutual integration and promotion of the two digitizations, the organization’s personal, financial, and material affairs can be realized. The full-link digitization of scene links such as production, supply, marketing, research, and organization of upstream and downstream ecological industry chains has become true productivity.

# Safety

The application of 5G, Internet of Things, AI, cloud computing and other technologies has accelerated the digitization and cloudification of production and service processes. However, while industrial digitization creates tremendous value, network security incidents are not uncommon. From Douyin’s infringement of user information rights, to face recognition companies such as Megvii Technology being pushed to the focus of public opinion, to Zhaolian recruiting user resumes flowing into the black market, to knowing 4 days to obtain 3w+ user information, to Meituan being questioned about differentiated pricing “Kill familiar” customers. . . . . . Driven by economic interests, while users’ personal information is being digged and utilized by various entities, fraud incidents caused by information leakage are commonplace, and “big data cracking” multi-domains and multi-platforms proliferate.

On the first day of November 2021, the ever-calling “Personal Information Protection Law of the People’s Republic of China” was officially implemented. The law clarifies that excessive collection of personal information, “big data”, regulates the processing of sensitive personal information such as facial information, and improves the working mechanism for personal information protection complaints and reports.

“A good cure must heal the place where it suffers, and a good rescuer must treat the cause of the evil.” The Personal Information Protection Law will build a security wall for the protection of personal information. At the same time, as the application of big data gradually penetrates every “capillary” of social production and life, companies are also actively taking relevant measures, setting up compliance mechanisms, and focusing on technology. Safety upgrades, and fundamentally avoid those “thunders” that should not be touched.

In June 2021, the Canton Fair with a long history was held online. Through iterative protection systems and mobile deployment, Tencent helped the Canton Fair intercept more than 1.3 million various security attacks, completed nearly 700 million content reviews, and finally achieved zero security. accident.

At this year’s Yunqi Conference, Xiao Li, Vice President of Alibaba Group & General Manager of Alibaba Cloud Security, mentioned: The value of data is generated when it flows, and data that cannot be used and analyzed is meaningless. Data security is to promote the efficient flow of data. This core builds a trust mechanism. Not touching user data is the red line of Alibaba Cloud, and it is also the minimum requirement. It gives data rights and obligations so that its owners, sharers, and regulators can release the value of data based on a trust mechanism. This is Alibaba Cloud’s data security philosophy.

HUAWEI CLOUD has also noticed data security compliance issues and risks very early, and starting from the full life cycle of data security, it provides data security solutions that are visible, controllable, and traceable. Through cloud security services such as data security centers, data security audits, and data encryption, companies can clearly grasp the risk status of data assets, do a good job in monitoring and early warning and emergency response to security incidents, and build a full-stack data protection system.

# Symbiosis

Digital transformation enters the deep water zone, and it is easy for all industries to know how to do it. The success of digital and intelligent transformation and upgrading of an enterprise is not only related to the survival and development of the enterprise itself, but also determines whether the entire industry can fully achieve high-quality development in the future. In particular, industries with long processes, multiple categories, and complex application scenarios need a digital transformation partner who can understand industry trends and transformation needs, and then promote the deep integration of their business and technology. Only when industry participants rise from “working on projects together” to “working on industries together” can new growth points under the new ecological cooperation relationship be formed. Therefore, industrial digitization and ecological co-construction are the inevitable choice for industrial development.

I have to mention Xiaomi here. Focusing on the core core business within the ecosystem, Xiaomi’s overall control of its own supply chain is increasingly focusing on the supporting output of technology + finance, in order to create intelligent enterprises for upstream and downstream partners in the supply chain and other non-strongly connected entities outside the ecosystem. Provide financial services; more importantly, achieve full-scene and full-chain financial service coverage from raw material procurement to terminal sales. Create a closure of ecological co-construction and common prosperity.

Indeed, the pattern and energy of individual “worrisome development” is not as great as the “team fight”. On the larger scale, in the industrial Internet, each industry has its own ecology. If it wants to develop, it must integrate into the ecology of each industry, combine the capabilities of its ecological partners, and provide services to customers. After all, digital innovation has become a new engine for domestic economic growth. From the perspective of national strategy, this kind of socialized digital intelligence transformation should not only emphasize the upgrading of individualism, but should stand at the big industry level and focus on Realize external empowerment based on a certain technology, and strive to seek “intergenerational iteration.”

Since the beginning of this year, JD Cloud has released its PaaS ecological cloud construction plan, and expanded the entry of nearly 30 partners, including PingCAP, Giant Sequoia, AsiaInfo, EasyStack, etc., involving multiple technical fields such as database and middleware. ; Through the “Thousand Sails Project”, Tencent builds and connects the SaaS ecosystem. Cooperating with more than 50 leading SaaS vendors such as Weimob, Kingdee, Fada, and eSale, launched multi-scenario solutions covering office collaboration, personnel management, industrial and commercial finance and taxation, production research and development, supply chain management, and precision marketing. . Now, more and more SaaS partners have joined the “Thousand Sails Project”. Through the Qianfan technology center, industry-based SaaS and general-purpose SaaS are interconnected and integrated to provide enterprises with one-stop SaaS services. . . . . .

It can be said that in 2021, “partners” will become the top priority of Internet TO B, and are often included in the transcripts of Ali, Tencent,, and Xiaomi. It can even be said that this is the TO of the current Internet technology companies. B focus.

03丨Enlighten the future together

2021 is a crucial year for the digitalization of the industry.

In the past 300 days, we have witnessed the changes in the digitalization of the industry, and we are more aware of the speed of the times. There are regrets, but more hope. Amid the drastic changes in the global situation, China’s economy has begun to move towards a new pattern of “dual cycles”, a major strategic deployment to promote the development of my country’s open economy to a higher level. “Digital technology promotes the conversion of new and old kinetic energy”, “Digital technology helps digital China”······The voice of the market has drawn a beautiful blueprint for digital technology, and various fields are waiting for opportunities, hoping to evolve and regenerate in opportunities , To write a new annotation for this era.

We are in the “intelligence” of the industry. People always say that the value of a commodity has long surpassed the price marked on the shelf. Behind it is the IoT ecosystem including important elements such as hardware, consumption, entertainment, social networking, medical care, travel, and finance. If it is mapped to the ecology of industrial digitalization, on the one hand, co-prosperity is the fertile ground for its own business closed-loop, on the other hand, it can also leverage greater value space through ecological opening.

The new year of 2022 is about to start, and the domestic digital market is undergoing drastic changes. The competition between Alibaba and Huawei has intensified, Tencent Cloud’s ecological expansion has accelerated, and the byte beating is high. The relationship between the giants has changed from separate races to a “face-to-face war.” It is not difficult to foresee that in the digital age of the industry, the fate of each player in the future may be determined by their own ecological capabilities, and the essence of this ability actually points to one point, that is, the integration of industry and finance and the co-prosperity of ecology.

Of course, under the combination of ecological co-prosperity and the integration of industry and finance, the breadth and depth of the interconnection of all things will surely deepen.

From point to surface, for you and me, so stay tuned.
