CITIC Telecom CPC global ICT solutions
The Netherlands, October 31, 2018: CITIC Telecom International CPC Limited (“CITIC Telecom CPC”), a wholly-owned subsidiary of CITIC Telecom International Holdings Limited (SEHK:1883) and leading online education provider TutorABC have announced their collaborative Edtech project won twin awards for real-world application of visionary Artificial Intelligence and Big Data technologies.
TutorABC’s revolutionary Dynamic Course Generation System (DCGS) generates personalised educational curriculum according to individual student interests and capabilities. DCGS integrates Artificial Intelligence and big data analytics with CITIC Telecom CPC’s cloud computing and network connectivity technologies to achieve transformative interactive learning capabilities.
CITIC Telecom CPC nominated this breakthrough project to the “IDC Digital Transformation Awards 2018,” resulting in TutorABC’s DCGS becoming the only non-banking industry entry to win the “Information Visionary” award in the Taiwan competition, and receiving the ‘Asia/Pacific Information Visionary of the Year’ accolade in the Asia Pacific competition.
Remarking on what differentiated DCGS, IDC judges said the system “can modify one’s way of teaching to suit the special requirements of each class or case” and this is what made TutorABC stand out from other award entries.
Stephen Ho, CEO of CITIC Telecom CPC emphasised, “We congratulate TutorABC and its team on winning ‘Asia/Pacific Information Visionary of the Year’ at the Regional IDC Digital Transformation Awards 2018. The award reaffirms TutorABC as a truly innovative organization with a strong leadership position in the e-education industry. We are proud to have partnered with such a valuable, successful visionary leader over the past 10 years. Certainly, we look forward to continuing support client transformation and business growth together with a vast portfolio of technology solutions, innovative services and professional support.”
TutorABC introduced and patented DCGS in 2006, bringing students an unprecedented online learning experience and positively impacting the English tutoring market. The innovative DCGS platform is integrated with CITIC Telecom CPC’s global ICT services, particularly its networking and cloud computing technologies.
Winning of these awards is strong testament to TutorABC’s innovation as an online learning leader, highlighting its CITIC Telecom CPC collaboration.
Arthur Shen, COO of TutorABC, said: “CITIC Telecom CPC is instrumental to our success with DCGS. We are delighted to continue to collaborate and leverage CITIC Telecom CPC’s exceptional industry knowledge, global real-time technical support team, and various world-class capabilities in networking, cloud infrastructure, high computing power and data centers, all enabling DCGS’s smooth and speedy global deployment.”
In addition to TutorABC winning the IDC awards, CITIC Telecom CPC was in turn acknowledged as ’Best Cloud Services Provider’ in the ’Readers’ Choice Product Excellence Awards 2018’ organised by NetworkWorld Asia.
“We are very proud to again win the NetworkWorld Asia award,” said Daniel Kwong, Chief Technology and Innovation Officer at CITIC Telecom CPC. “It is inspiring both our companies are recognised by the industry, and CITIC Telecom CPC is thrilled to work with TutorABC. In a market with limited IT talent, budget and time, enterprises should seek technology partners with adequate ICT experience and capability to support business transformation and expansion across multiple markets. We are committed to delivering top-notch networking and cloud solutions our customers can confidently depend on for both their innovative projects and day-to-day operations.”
“TutorABC’s recognition at the IDC Digital Transformation Awards 2018, and our winning of the Best Cloud Services Provider award, are real-world validation of CITIC Telecom CPC’s core values,” Ho concluded.
