Wang Wenjing | CEO of Yonyou Network Technology Co., Ltd.
The global Internet is expanding from consumer based to enterprise based. Internet Application of Enterprise and organization is growing as a newly important strategic area in the wave of the Internet development. Therefore, the enterprise information also enters a new developing stage.
The development of enterprise information is changing from the computerized stage to the overall enterprise information stage, then, to the current Internet stage. The computerized level is changed from departmental level to enterprise level, then to social level correspondingly. Office Automation is a symbol of computerization stage. The information stage mainly focuses on process optimization, like ERP. In the Internet stage, the core value proposition turns into commercial innovations. Meanwhile, the corresponding service market scale is rapidly developing. If we say computerized stage is a ten billions market, then information stage is a hundred billions market and Internet stage a trillion market.
Qingdao Redcollar is developed from local clothing company to the well-known company in China. It is famous for changing the business modal by utilizing the Internet and allows a massive customization through big-data platform. It is one of the traditional enterprises which is transformed to Enterprise Internet in China.
Any business or any service innovation should be established based on customer value. What is the value that Enterprise Internet brings to the Enterprise? It brings a brand new innovation of enterprise business and management model, which is also a revolution for the enterprise operation model.
The model is shown in the following four aspects:
First of all, the enterprise business model transforms from product and manufacturer oriented to customer oriented. Turning into customer driven is a revolution for the enterprise operation model.
Secondly, the enterprise operation changes from process driven to data driven. Process is still important, but the data is becoming more critical. The operation and development of the enterprise is driven by data.
Thirdly, for the operation, the original business model is a passive operation. However, enterprise will gradually transform into real time operation due to Internet application. The idea of real-time enterprise has been raised out more than a decade ago, but this dream could only be actually realized until today.
Last but not least, the original enterprise internal operation is top-down organization driven approach, which is now transformed into employee driven approach. In Internet enterprises, employee based grass-root organization becomes more and more important. It becomes more and more prominent as the driving role for enterprise development.
Of course, these changes occur in Internet enterprises and e-commerce enterprises first. But such kind of change is originated from network enterprises are rapidly expanding to every walk of life in traditional enterprises. The previous mentioned Redcollar is only one of the cases. More traditional enterprises are in the process of this change. Nearly every executives among all industries, whether they are CEO, CIO or CFO, the most important hot issue known is the Enterprise Internet. Whether to realize Enterprise Internet is not the critical issue, the key question is how to realize the interconnection.
The Internet has become the driving power of China’s enterprise innovation, and it is also one of the important strategic focus for enterprise transition and upgrade, which is an important transformation path for realizing China’s economic development. In the foreseeable future, the Internet is no longer the web’s patent. Regardless of the industries and company scale, , every enterprise will become the Internet enterprise, and then a data-driven enterprise.

The strategy map of Yonyou is 3 + 1, “1” stands for public service platform, “3” indicates that two types and three key businesses are provided by the public service platform. Two kinds mean the enterprise operational management services and financial services.

Enterprise software, Enterprise Internet services and Internet Finance is the key to promote Yonyou business development strategy. Seamless connection, data sharing and business collaboration would be realized through software, Internet services, Internet finance.
The Enterprise Internet services are constructed under new computing architecture. Computing architecture is not only a technical architecture, what’s more important, it is on behalf of providing new value for the enterprise customer services based on the new technology. This architecture is to achieve user-centered, data driven and social computing application architecture.
There are two platforms to realize this architecture. Yonyou provides two products. One is a hybrid cloud platform named iUAP, which is a private cloud designed for large and medium-sized enterprises and governmental organizations and combined with public cloud. iUAP platform is an open platform developed for Enterprise Internet services based on the experience gained from developing large-scale enterprise organization computing platform and new technical structure.
