The first mine: technology empowerment enhances value
Generally speaking, commercial value refers to the economic value of things in the process of production and consumption. It is mainly displayed through the market scope of products, brand awareness, and reputation. Technology is the systematic knowledge of manufacturing products. Whether this kind of knowledge is reflected in invention, shape design or service or assistance provided for a specific production entity, technology is undoubtedly a powerful promoter of economic benefits. Science and technology are the first productive forces, and innovation is the first driving force to lead development. Before the National Development and Reform Commission clarified the scope of the new infrastructure, the “seven areas”-5G infrastructure, UHV, intercity high-speed railway and intercity rail transit , New energy vehicle charging piles, big data centers, artificial intelligence and industrial Internet-all inseparable from deep research and development and high dependence on technology.
Li Yongjian, director of the Internet Economy Research Office of the Academy of Economics and Social Strategies of the Chinese Academy of Social Sciences, said that the new infrastructure is the foundation for building an industrial powerhouse, and the various facilities of the new infrastructure, such as the communication network foundation represented by 5G, Internet of Things, industrial Internet, and satellite Internet Facilities, such as new technology infrastructure represented by artificial intelligence, cloud computing, blockchain, etc., and computing power infrastructure represented by data centers, intelligent computing centers, etc., can directly empower the real economy to improve efficiency .
On April 20, 2020, the National Development and Reform Commission proposed in its press conference that new infrastructure is guided by new development concepts, driven by technological innovation, based on information networks, and provides digital transformation for high-quality development needs. , Intelligent upgrade, integrated innovation and other service infrastructure systems. It can be seen from this that technological innovation as a driving force not only injects momentum into business value changes, but also provides strong basic support.
If we only focus our attention on the construction and participation of these seven new infrastructure sectors, we will undoubtedly limit the value of the new infrastructure.
As a cloud computing brand, Tencent Cloud uses its cloud computing, big data, artificial intelligence and other technologies to provide solutions that can be used for reference in terms of enterprise services that reflect commercial value.
For example, in the field of industrial Internet, Foxconn has cooperated with Tencent Cloud to complete the work from IT infrastructure to platform construction, ecological construction and operation in a short construction period. Relying on decades of manufacturing knowledge and experience accumulation, Foxconn has launched a series of industrial applications based on the unified development and billing of microservice architecture, and has become an internationally leading industrial Internet platform operator with high hopes in the industry.
Empowered by the new infrastructure technology, the company has obtained a new path of value creation and expanded the scope of market services. This is an extension of the new infrastructure to boost the commercial value.
In addition, Tencent also created AlphaGo in the field of composite testing with COMAC. The defects of the previous composite material testing process are similar to patients doing B-ultrasound. For example, the composite material testing of an aircraft tail requires several hours of collaborative work by several teachers, and it costs hundreds of thousands of yuan to produce a large number of comparative testing samples. However, through Tencent’s AI artificial intelligence can assist the detection system, the entire detection process only takes a few minutes for an ordinary detection person, and the detection sample is also reduced to only 2 yuan. At the same time, with the aid of AI, it can also detect some subtle defects that the human eye cannot find from the ultrasound image, which increases the overall defect detection rate to 99%.
It can be said that by applying new infrastructure technology internally to enable a variety of scenarios, companies have reduced costs in content, improved product operation efficiency, and created unprecedented new business value. At present, such examples are numerous.
“The difference between the new infrastructure and the traditional infrastructure is that it is closely integrated with the development and application of digital information technology, and exerts its strength at the high-tech end to support the development of the digital economy and the overall national economy.” Jia Kang, a researcher at the China Academy of Fiscal Sciences, told the media. The new infrastructure is cut from the construction of economic development conditions, forming an effective supply capacity composed of related hardware and software, supporting the combination of many innovative mechanisms and the application of scientific and technological achievements, opening a broad space for commercial value, and better satisfying the people’s better life. Need.
The second mine: integration and development to create value
A very important feature of the new infrastructure is digitalization. The central government’s efforts to accelerate the deployment of new infrastructure such as 5G networks and big data all reflect the characteristics of the digital economy.
During the epidemic, digital technologies such as cloud computing, artificial intelligence, and big data played an active role in the integration and development of medical services, scientific research, and online education. For example, XFLYTEK has jointly developed with Anhui Provincial Data Resources Administration and relied on the platform of “Anhui General Affairs Office” to control population mobility nodes in a timely manner. While making predictions and research judgments, it organized and developed the “Anhui Health Code” service to Resumption of production and escort.
In addition, Tencent also uses digital solutions such as small programs to help enterprises to resume work online. In order to help solve the problem that the employees of the enterprise cannot return to work normally, and the stage of the company’s manpower shortage, the Hunan Provincial Government and Tencent have cooperated deeply. After the small program R&D was launched, it was popular among the employers and laborers in the province. Ten thousand users applied for jobs online, achieved 4.38 million page views of small programs, 724 registered companies, provided 180,000 jobs, and received 15,708 user resumes.
Data is a core element that connects people’s lives. For example, the arrival of the cloud era such as “cloud signing”, “cloud interview” and “cloud training” has enabled commercial value to find a new type of change, not only to allow consumers to form a This new consumption habit has also constantly forced brands to embark on the exploration of commercial value.
Since the use of Tencent Meetings, it has met the surge in demand for online meetings and remote offices among users across the country. Starting from January 29, 2020, the Tencent meeting is undergoing resource expansion every day. The average daily expansion of cloud hosts is close to 15,000 units. In total, the expansion of more than 100,000 cloud hosts in 8 days involves more than 1 million cores of computing resources.
Not only that, the comprehensive promotion of health codes has also helped the government to manage the epidemic period, covering a total of 900 million people, becoming the health code with the most service users and the fastest growth rate. As for online hospitals, cloud education, and remote services in the financial sector and video tellers, they have all become products of the digital economy era, making the connotation of business value constantly changing to help companies continue to develop.
In recent years, my country’s digital economy has developed rapidly. In 2018, my country’s digital economy totaled 31.3 trillion yuan, accounting for 34.8% of GDP. Among them, the industry’s digital scale was 24.88 trillion yuan, accounting for 79.5% of the digital economy. Even though the development is so rapid, according to Li Yongjian’s observation, there are still some deficiencies in the application of digital technology in China. For example, SMEs still have relatively large deficiencies in digitalization. This is the practical reason why the new infrastructure can be put forward, and it is also the integrated development of the new infrastructure. Where to create value.
“Our field research shows that there are still large gaps in infrastructure related to digitalization of SMEs, such as artificial intelligence, industrial Internet, and Internet of Things. From the perspective of big data centers, less than 10% of enterprise data is stored and developed. With less than 2% of utilization, the role of data as a new factor of production in the digital economy era has not been fully utilized.” Li Yongjian said that the demand for new infrastructure such as 5G, artificial intelligence, industrial Internet, Internet of Things, and big data centers is still At the rising stage, this requires companies to continuously improve themselves, integrate new infrastructure technologies, and integrate technology with their own development as soon as possible, strive to be consistent with the direction of the digital economy era, and give full play to the advantages of the new infrastructure in the integration of industry and technology development in all walks of life .
The third mine: platform economic expansion value
Currently, governments at all levels have asked local platform companies to actively undertake the tasks of new infrastructure, but how should local platform companies undertake the new infrastructure? How will the new infrastructure empower new brands? How does the platform economy need to make full use of the new infrastructure and the competitive market for mutual benefit?
“The seven areas of the new infrastructure, including 5G base station construction, UHV, intercity high-speed railway and urban rail transit, and new energy vehicle charging piles, must be strong brands, all of which are leading brands.” Qingdao Creative Ideas Institute Think Tank Lei Ming, an expert and a professor at the School of Business Administration of South China University of Technology, told “China Famous Brand” that the business model is one of the main standards to reflect the change in business value. The traditional infrastructure construction is relatively simple, but the new infrastructure will have a new development form. Under certain circumstances, a company’s products are used for new infrastructure, and it will endorse its brand to strengthen its future competitiveness.
During the epidemic, the new infrastructure was regarded as an important force for steady growth. According to preliminary estimates, the total scale of new infrastructure investment will exceed 40 trillion yuan, and the investment scale that has been determined to be implemented in 2020 will reach 1.1 trillion yuan. In addition to the unified deployment of the central government, various regions are also rushing to deploy new infrastructure in advance, and many regions will use the new infrastructure as an important driving force for regional industrial development in key projects in 2020. In this context, as one of the main application scenarios, the construction of smart cities will also be on the agenda. These technical requirements also provide opportunities and dividends for the platform economy to participate in the new infrastructure.
The platform economy is different from the traditional platform companies, which is where its current commercial value lies. The current platform companies have not only changed their business from traditional infrastructure to the seven major areas, but also have made new changes in business thinking and technical thinking.
The analysis of new infrastructure investment in the four major urban agglomerations including Beijing-Tianjin-Hebei, the Yangtze River Delta, the Guangdong-Hong Kong-Macao Greater Bay Area, and the Chengdu-Chongqing Shuangcheng Economic Circle revealed that these urban agglomerations have taken advantage of their own industries as an entry point to gradually promote smart cities Construction, for example, Zhengzhou Airport, China’s first national airport economic zone, focuses on the three major areas of government, people and enterprises, and promotes the development of smart city brands around the platform support and data operation business lines.
In addition to developing local advantageous industries and reaching cooperation with relevant government departments, the platform economy is also industry-oriented to realize the implementation of smart high-speed, smart rail transit and other infrastructure. For example, the construction of a new infrastructure smart city based on the development of advantageous industries in Guangzhou, with transportation as the starting point, integrates advantageous industries such as automobiles and rail transit, and establishes smart city investment and operation companies, which are represented by Internet of Vehicles and Internet of Things. Platform economy brand building.
“In the era of new infrastructure, the platform economy will assume the role of the main action integrator. Based on the Internet and mobile terminals, it can better integrate its own advantages to expand business and explore new brand business values.” Lei Ming said that the platform economy is in the future You can rely on platforms and data to import smart city development dividends, you can also develop city services to obtain cash flow, and you can rely on platforms to achieve diversified income by creating new infrastructure.
