Innovation Never Stops –
Empowering the “Film +” Strategy with high performance ICT solution
December, 2016 (Beijing). China Enterprise ICT Solutions Limited (China Entercom) announced
the signing of a strategic cooperation agreement with Dadi Cinema Group (“Dadi”), a trendsetting
company in China’s cinema industry. China Entercom will provide Dadi with a comprehensive
network management solution including consultation, design, deployment and operations support.
Through optimization and upgrade of Dadi’s network infrastructure, network security, data center
and hi-speed network connections, the solution will effectively facilitate the implementation of
Dadi’s “Film +” strategy, designed to create an experiential cinema ecosystem that features multifaceted
operation. The revolutionary concept will usher in a new era for the film industry.
Innovation Never Stops – enhancing competitiveness, optimizing customer experience
Dadi has witnessed the development of the film industry in China and, over the last decade, has established itself as a flagship enterprise in the domestic cinema market. As of October 31, 2016, Dadi operates 334 cinemas with a total of 1,795 screens located in 158 cities in 28 provinces. The first company in China to introduce fully digital cinemas, Dadi is now rolling out its innovative Film+ strategy. As Dadi General Manager Ms. Xin Yu explains, “Film+ is focused on the cinema experience. Combined with in-depth management of film culture groups, we attempt to create an experiential cinema ecosystem that features innovative catering, retail sales, Internet and cultural experiences. China Entercom’s “Innovation Never Stops” philosophy is a perfect fit with our business strategy. We hope that teaming up with China Entercom will give us the benefits of its cutting-edge technology and informatization management capabilities to upgrade facilities to meet consumer demand, forge ahead with our Film + strategy, and make the Dadi brand more competitive.”
Innovation Never Stops – reliable operations that are secure and efficient
Moving ahead with the Film + strategy hinges on developing more online and digital cinema services. Core business areas such as ticketing and management systems must be secure and perform reliably. To keep up with Dadi’s explosively rapid growth in recent years, the company’s network systems ballooned in size, becoming increasingly complicated and fragile. “The cooperation with China Entercom will allow us to leverage its one-stop ICT solution to refurbish our company’s basic infrastructure, including systems, networks, security and service assurances. We will establish standardized operating procedures and management mechanisms in order to ensure unified management and operations, and to maintain continuity of our services.” said Mr. Shi Di Wang, Dadi’s Senior IT Director.
China Entercom is pledged to develop advanced infrastructure support solutions, including a complete end-to-end infrastructure solution and a state-of-the-art data center that will provide a stable and reliable operating environment for cinema business systems. Besides, its TrustCSI UTM will offer secure interconnectivity between cinemas and the core system, allowing Dadi to ensure efficient and stable performance of its cinema business systems across 100 cities in China. The advanced solutions provided by China Entercom not only support the Film + strategy decisionmaking process with real-time information and communications, but also offer customers a quality experience, both online and offline, when they are booking tickets, selecting seats, viewing movies and shopping for other items at Dadi.
China Entercom will provide managed services to Dadi. The company will rely on its extensive service coverage and one-stop operation capabilities to offer Dadi 24/7 operational support for all of its cinemas nationwide. China Entercom’s services include overall coordination, centralized management, rapid response and redeployments as needed. With China Entercom taking over a significant part of the day to day operational load, Dadi will be able to direct more resources to the optimization and upgrading of its IT business.
