Alibaba Cloud to enhance Malaysia’s Education System



( – Alibaba Cloud, the cloud computing arm of Alibaba Group, together with Conversant Solutions Pte. Ltd. and Prestariang Berhad, today signed a Memorandum of Understanding (“MoU”) to collaboratively build an integrated education platform known as EduCloud.

The new single platform is aimed at delivering all activities linked to education and related services. These cloud-based services will include campus management, teaching and learning, entertainment, digital payment, and many other services and online applications.

Beginning in Malaysia, the collaboration will allow all three companies to deliver a comprehensive range of education services and explore new opportunities in the Asia Pacific market.
To ensure EduCloud’s success, the collaboration leverages each party’s strengths, including Alibaba Cloud’s cloud computing capabilities, Conversant’s Digital Media Enablement and Prestariang’s talent and education customer base and deployment expertise.

“The tripartite collaboration leverages Alibaba Cloud’s partnership ecosystem and expertise in cloud computing. We are excited to work with Conversant and Prestariang to empower education institutions in Malaysia with new IT cloud infrastructure,” said Ethan Yu, Vice President of Alibaba Group and General Manager of Alibaba Cloud Global.

“Partnering with Alibaba Cloud and Conversant is very much aligned with Prestariang’s new corporate growth strategies. EduCloud will capitalize on our existing footprint, help grow our customer base, and expand our offering to include not just licensing and training, but also online application and services.

It will enable us to journey into new areas such as digital platform and big data analytics and provide end-to- end solutions and services to the whole education market via the cloud. I am confident that this collaboration will open new opportunities in and beyond Malaysia,” Dr. Abu Hasan Ismail, President and Group CEO of Prestariang Berhad added.

Established in September 2009, Alibaba Cloud, Alibaba Group’s cloud computing arm, develops highly scalable platforms for cloud computing and data management. This is one of the many new involvements of the company in this region, late last year Founder and Executive Chairman of Alibaba Group Jack Ma was named Malaysia’s digital economy advisor.
