At present, there are three problems demanding prompt solution in the education industry. Fu Qingming said, with the approaching of new technologies, the traditional education industry requires a reform, and JD Cloud is able to help the education industry with the reform and provide better educational modes.


How to gain the trust of accurate customers is one of the problems demanding prompt solutions by numerous education institutions. JD Cloud takes advantages of intelligent marketing modes to enhance the sales conversion of education institutions.


As regard to integrators’ lack of integration capacity and channels for education institutions and academies, JD Cloud provides integrators with basic capability and ability to link with academies and joins hands with its partners to build segmented scenarios for education based on JD Group's resource benefits, core capabilities of education partners, its own technology accumulation and technology abilities.


The unbalance and high cost of infrastructure in the education industry lead to uneven distribution of education resources. JD Cloud eases education institutions with IT through one-stop connection and video service, and facilitates education institutions with AI from underlayer to application. Although on-line education brings channel innovation, it might not entirely supersede off-line education. Depending on combination of on-line multichannel reaching and off-line solutions, JD Cloud gets through the four blocks of service, content, software and hardware to provide services fully covering content, scenario, data and device, and set up the education technology service platform thus to minimize the infrastructure cost of education institutions. The education institutions then only need to focus on improving class preparation, managing students, and helping teachers enhance teaching quality.


Fu Qingming emphasized in his speech that "JD Cloud will offer AI and other technical capabilities to help its partners focus better on the improvement in professional ability of education industry, and explore together with its partners to effectively address the challenges and difficulties of the education industry, making contributions to the education industry and increasing the education level through technical empowerment.
