Recently, the trend of digital transformation of global enterprises is in the ascendant, coupled with the outbreak of the COVID-19 (new crown pneumonia) epidemic in 2020, which has accelerated the transformation of enterprises, and promoted the business opportunities of cloud AIaaS (Artificial Intelligence as a Service). Due to the characteristics of pay-as-you-go and flexible expansion of public cloud platforms, many enterprises regard public cloud platforms as a springboard for digital transformation.
Looking forward to 2023, DIGITIMES Research observes that the AIaaS public cloud platform will gradually develop towards an industrial cloud that is more Company banner design customized and closer to the needs of vertical markets. In the past, the AIaaS services provided by public cloud platform providers (such as AWS, GCP, and Azure) mostly provided software and hardware technical resources required for enterprise users to develop AI applications, focusing on cross-industry versatility, such as image recognition, voice processing, Chatbots, etc., allow enterprise users to directly use AIaaS services provided by public cloud platforms to develop AI applications. However, due to the lack of contextual knowledge in specific industries, these general-purpose AIaaS make it difficult for enterprises to import existing business processes, and it is difficult to substantially solve business problems.
DIGITIMES Research observes that recently, public cloud platform operators have gradually expanded to specific industrial application scenarios, creating industrial cloud solutions dedicated to vertical industries, in order to be closer to the operational needs of various industries. The public cloud indicator industry is currently giving priority to the retail, medical, financial and manufacturing industries to launch dedicated industrial cloud solutions. The main reason is that most of these industrial types already have relatively complete data assets, so they have become the first public cloud platforms to promote industrial cloud. area of the program.
