Under the epidemic, the new economy represented by the digital economy quickly fills up its seats to provide protection for everyone’s needs in life. “Cloud Office”, “Cloud Fitness”, “Cloud Concert”, “Cloud Recording”, “Cloud Release”…a business format about “cloud” became standard, which even detonated the term “cloud economy”. Although some people do not understand this concept very well, they have actually participated in it.
There is currently no uniform definition of “cloud economy” in academic circles. Some scholars define “cloud economy” as the economy of cloud computing and cloud services. Joe Weinman, the author of “Cloud Economics-Enterprise Cloud Computing Strategy and Layout”, explained that “cloud economics” is not an esoteric economic theory. The mathematical model is a vivid summary of the technological revolution, the core concept of “flexible cloud computing can effectively enhance the business value of enterprises”. The “cloud economy” we are talking about today mainly defines the business trend of enterprises and society under the massive application of cloud computing.
Since the country put forward the “Internet +” action plan in 2015, “Internet +” has been widely integrated into all walks of life, and the continuous innovation and integration of online scenes and offline scenes has promoted retail, finance, culture and entertainment, medical care, government affairs and other fields The rapid development and the “Internet +” that incorporates artificial intelligence technology is a technology cluster application. From pure software intelligence in the past to hard and soft intelligence today, it has changed people’s daily life and the overall industrial structure. Promoting the consumption upgrade of the market has also played a positive role and has become one of the signs leading the innovation and development of enterprises and society. In this special period of epidemic prevention and control, people rely on online work and life. It is generally believed that this is another rapid development trend in the Internet industry after SARS, which may provide more opportunities for entrepreneurship and employment, or even form new ones. The economic outlet of China-“Cloud Economy”.
Whether it is facial recognition and body temperature measurement equipment, or online check-in and attendance systems, all walks of life are launching various “cloud”-related products. When the market is advancing by leaps and bounds, we should maintain a rational mindset and be cautious and objective about the “cloud economy”. The popularity of the “cloud economy” during this period is mainly affected by the isolation of people at home during special periods, but the most fundamental driving factor is the rapid development of my country’s Internet and logistics industries in recent years. After the epidemic is over, it is a question mark whether the “cloud economy” can continue to be prosperous after being separated from the consumption environment of everyone’s home. In a short period of time, its impact on economic development and entrepreneurship and employment is still limited.
However, it should be noted that during this epidemic, consumers at home took the initiative to apply various “cloud economy” products, which I believe has provided a lot of support for the development of the “cloud economy” industry. The epidemic brings short-term pressure, but also brings opportunities for changes in the industry structure. Take “Cloud Classroom” as an example. The “Suspension of Classes without Suspension” this time is a test of online education. Some pain points such as poor self-control of students in online education have been exposed, and it is believed that the promotion of solving these pain points will become ” The next focus of “wisdom education”. In addition, the formulation and improvement of the “cloud economy” development policy will bring benefits to the better promotion of the development of the “cloud economy” in the future.
After this epidemic, we must not only see the reasons behind the “cloud economy”, but also find new “outlets” from the aspects of economic and social development and lifestyle changes. The government, enterprises and other diversified entities should increase integration and innovation mechanisms to truly endow this new economic form with more vitality and impetus.
