A collaboration between Thailand’s True Internet Data Centre (True IDC) and Tencent (Thailand) has produced the country’s "first" in-country interactive and artificial intelligence (AI) enabled cloud platform.
The new platform will offer a complete range of cloud services to both the public and private sectors and is expected to enable organisations with a strategic option to provide cloud solutions within the country on a standard platform.
“In 2019, revenues from cloud services in Thailand have an average growth of 31.5 per cent,” said Supparat Sivapetchranat Singhara Na Ayutthaya, managing director of True IDC.
“The projected growth can be exceeded if there is a scalable and secure cloud service with the capabilities to provide infrastructure, platform, and software-as-a-service and can support multi-tenant and single tenant use from both private and public sectors,” added Ayutthaya.
“With our collaboration with Tencent (Thailand), we could deliver in-country world-class cloud platform that enables organisations and businesses such as the government, financial institutions, and media content service providers with an option to secure their data in the country.”
“This will result in the incoming investments in the country and eventually make Thailand an epicentre of Indochina,” asserted Ayutthaya.
The ultimate aim of this new AI-enabled cloud platform is to provide local businesses with intelligent and secure cloud solutions at lower costs, enabling them to improve their efficiencies and performances and, thus, enabling Thailand to maintain its competitive edge in the digital transformation era.
“With a swift growth in digital economy in Thailand, the nation is in need of smart cloud services to fulfil its economic potential,” said Chang Foo, chief operating officer of Tencent Thailand. “This is why we decided to join hands with True IDC to establish a centre in Thailand.”
“We believe that our collaboration will enable us to deliver world-class cloud experience to users through our full array of vertical solutions and cutting-edge technology including face recognition, smart retail solution, and content delivery network.”
“This interactive and AI-enabled cloud platform will strengthen the digital infrastructure of the nation, which is key to economic success in this digital age,” added Foo.
