Winning Formula of Tencent Cloud
Respondents of the 2020 Frost & Sullivan Global Cloud User Survey indicated that improving business process efficiency and quality, customer experience and employee productivity are their top strategic business goals. To support companies in achieving these goals, Tencent Cloud has presented multiple initiatives as cited by Frost & Sullivan, including the launch of VooV Meeting, Global Office Access (GOA) and the establishment of 300 edge computing centers, among others.
