Alibaba Cloud Bets Big on Sports

January 10, 2018

Joey Tan, Head of Global Strategic Initiatives at Alibaba Cloud, discusses recent partnerships with FIFA and the Olympics and why getting into the sports industry is great for the company's continued growth.

Tan discusses how the cloud platform seeks to enhance the viewer experience and make games more widely available to groups that may not normally get to experience it. Tan talks how the Alibaba Cloud seeks to work in "smart" cities and how first tackling sports arenas can lead to developing municipalities.
