XCMG has partnered with Aliyun, the cloud computing service provider of Alibaba Group Holding Limited, to build the XCMG-cloud, an inclusive industrial cloud platform based on XCMG´s complete data and information systems in the industry 4.0 revolution, the company said.
The XCMG-Cloud will be used to share massive data and support further global convergence.
XCMG launched projects in 2009 to upgrade the company´s information system, linking research and development, production and supply chain as well as gathering 150 terabytes of industrial big data. The system has now been applied to multiple areas such as intelligent manufacturing, remote diagnosis and after-sales service, and will become the solid foundation to support building the preliminary basic cloud platform of XCMG-Cloud.
XCMG will construct a sharing service center 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.
XCMG is a multinational heavy machinery manufacturing company with a history of 73 years.
