of course sam is his generation's master of all US links free download from journal issue 6 -paper by sam daley-harris: what's needed now are social innovations as is Monica hers www.singforhope.org
2 simplest way to introduce my interests is to say back in 1972 dad at The Economist and I saw hundreds of youth sharing knowhow around an early digital network- http://normanmacrae.ning.com the rest of my dad's life was spent debating in The Economist what he called Entrepreneurial Revolution and its application to 7 major markets that he believed would most determine whether the net generation would become
the most productive and sustainable
or go the way orwell predicted
as cambridge graduated mathematicians, one thing that dad and I know about system design is the most unlikely impact of "death of distance technology" of the early 21st century is some in between state of these two extremes- as per our 1984 book on the net generation - the next decade is deadlined to determine where our species goes. So http://wholeplanet.tv making sure that millions of youth interact that choice is beyond urgent- and only open education seems left as the way ahead to scale that
dad died in 2010 but wherever my family can, we host parties around the world so practical or journalistic connections can be made between youth and yunus and dad's views of how to celebrate million times more collaboration technology in what youth spend their lifetimes on -estelle's video of party at The Economist boardroom - combined pro-youth economics leaflet written with yunus
-friends who joined in this party included Jeff Devlin whose main global consultancy is on health, and my brother in law chris granville who was for long a senior accountant at BUPA - also we were joined by one of dad's great friends was sir keith peters who revolutionised cambridge university's approach to healthcare and has been a former head of the royal academy for medicine ;
so health service is one of 7 application areas I try and maintain maps of people who want health to be designed around the future of youth's needs and real millennium goal investment- today what could be more vital than getting the curriculum of the most affordable and accessible healthcare up so that millions of yunus can interact around this before the opposite curriculum dominates virtual channels as it already does physical academia?
we can go further and say that after yunus first 15 years of experimenting with mobile , he saw that the only way that future generations will all get affordable healthcare is if nurses become the most trusted grassroots and information networkers -and to some extent nursing, nutrition, healthy exercise becomes a secondary curriculum sufficiently that wizard technologists build apps around these connections
given that yunus longest running supporters out of scotland have ensured that grameen already sustains the most economical nursing training curriculum for real - it would be a tragic watse iof such curriculum isnt a lead area of MOOCyunus and what content is first edited in healthcare into www.khanacademy.org and coursera
when one surveys who could help yunus open source a knowhow curriculum -of any of the practices he has devoted his life to - one ends up with a different map from which agents maximise fund raising and their own power around representing him
here is part of my my map of whose collaborations can most help yunus free nursing and emedical and nutrition curriculum - of course I am delighted to be informed of gaps in my knowledge
1 on the ground -out of grameen in mirpur, sultan (kalyan) and parfitt (nursing) are heroic practitioners
2 for 7 years now mostofa (a young bangladeshi villager) has been arranging interviews for me - 21 with yunus and 11 bangladesh visits so its always worth checking local news from him
3 when it comes to youth wizards of technology in bangladesh , shafqat who used to work for grameen solutions but now owns his own tech consulrancy is well placed- especially as he is helping larry brilliant and skoll bring an ilab to dhaka; it was actually larry brilliant who did such a great job in codifying what the aravind microfranchise involved so that it was as easy as possible tor sultan to replicate it from india to bangladesh
4 naila used to head grameen solutions but is now over in dc region both because her family needed her hear and the conflicts in bangladesh make it unsafe ; she has her own teleconsulting business that people like vidar depend on when they need new audiences (eg the film to catch dollar); she is also mobilising events where several thounsand people converge in maryland to get free healthchecks for a day -s e eg www.women4empowerment.org whose biggest events are hosted in same communities that john hopkins serves (probaly the main coursera curriculum provider on health)
5 tania has also take a timeout in the dc region i live in - previously being chief of staff for sir fazle abed- when one maps grassroots education and healthcare in bangladesh while funding channels of brac and grameen may be separate knowledge flows should never be siloised if holistic health service to the rural poor is the future goal
6 taddy blecher in south africa knows more about who;s who of free education than anyone I know- he started free university movements around mandela and google africa about 14 years ago --- I am sure he loves any connections with health knowhow
7 back in australia kim mediates youth futures in ways that parallel my work

Catherine Ashton, Baroness Ashton of Upholland, PC (born 20 March 1956) is a British Labour politician who in 2009 became the High Representative of the Union for Foreign Affairs and Security Policy for the European Union. Under the Treaty of Lisbon, this post is combined with the post of Vice-President of the European Commission.
Her political career began in 1999 when she was created a Life Peer (Baroness Ashton of Upholland) by the Labour Government. Under this government she became the Parliamentary Under-Secretary of State in the Department for Education and Skills in 2001 and subsequently in the Department for Constitutional Affairs and Ministry of Justice in 2004. She became a Privy Councillor (PC) in May 2006.
Catherine Ashton was appointed Leader of the House of Lords and Lord President of the Queen's Privy Council in Gordon Brown’s first Cabinet in June 2007. As well as Leader of the Lords, she held responsibility in the House of Lords for equalities issues, and she was instrumental in steering the EU's Treaty of Lisbon through the UK's upper chamber. In 2008, she succeeded Peter Mandelson as Commissioner for Trade in the European Commission.
In December 2009, she became the first person to take on the role of High Representative of the Union for Foreign Affairs and Security Policy that was created by the Treaty of Lisbon. As High Representative, Baroness Ashton serves as the EU's foreign policy chief.

Catherine Ashton was born in Upholland, Lancashire on 20 March 1956. She comes from a working class family, with a background in coal mining going back generations. She attended Upholland Grammar School in Billinge Higher End, Lancashire, then Wigan Mining and Technical College inWigan. Ashton graduated with a BSc in Sociology in 1977 from Bedford College, London (now part of Royal Holloway, University of London). She was the first person in her family to attend University.
Early career in the United Kingdom
Between 1977 and 1983 Ashton worked for the Campaign for Nuclear Disarmament (CND) as an administrator and in 1982 was elected as its national treasurer and subsequently as one of its vice-chairs. From 1979 to 1981 she was Business Manager of The Coverdale Organisation, a management consultancy. As of 1983 she worked for the Central Council for Education and Training in Social Work. From 1983 to 1989 she was Director of Business in the Community working with business to tackle inequality, and established the Employers' Forum on Disability, Opportunity Now, and the Windsor Fellowship. For most of the 1990s, she worked as a freelance policy adviser. She chaired the Health Authority inHertfordshire from 1998 to 2001, and her children's school governing body, and became a Vice President of the National Council for One Parent Families.
She was made a Labour life peer as Baroness Ashton of Upholland in 1999, under Prime Minister Tony Blair. In June 2001 she was appointedParliamentary Under-Secretary of State in the Department for Education and Skills. In 2002 she was appointed minister for Sure Start in the same department. In September 2004, she was appointed Parliamentary Under-Secretary in the Department for Constitutional Affairs, with responsibilities including the National Archives and the Public Guardianship Office. Ashton was sworn of the Privy Council in 2006, and became Parliamentary Under-Secretary of State at the new Ministry of Justice in May 2007.
In 2005 she was voted "Minister of the Year" by The House Magazine and "Peer of the Year" by Channel 4. In 2006 she won the "Politician of the Year" award at the annual Stonewall Awards, awarded to those that have made a positive impact on the lives of British LGBT people.
On 28 June 2007 the new Prime Minister, Gordon Brown, appointed her to the Cabinet as Leader of the House of Lords and Lord President of the Council. As Leader of the House, she was responsible for passing the Lisbon Treaty through the House of Lords.
EU Trade Commissioner
On 3 October 2008, she was nominated to replace Peter Mandelson as the UK's European Commissioner in Brussels. European Commissioners may not engage in any other occupation during their term of office, whether gainful or not so, in order to take up her position, she used the procedural device previously used in 1984 by Lord Cockfield and took a leave of absence from the House of Lords on 14 October 2008, retaining her peerage but not her seat.
Her appointment as Trade Commissioner was scrutinised by the European Parliament. She was criticised by Daniel Hannan, a British Conservative MEP, saying that she had "no background in trade issues at a time when the EU is engaged in critical negotiations with Canada, Korea and the WTO". However, following her public confirmation hearing by the Trade Committee of theEuropean Parliament, Ashton was approved by the Parliament on 22 October 2008 with 538 to 40 votes, and 63 abstentions.
In May 2009 after twenty years of disputes she represented the EU leading to an end of the beef war with US, 
In October 2009 as Trade Commissioner she concluded what was described by some commentators as ‘the most important trade agreement ever negotiated between the European Union and a third country’ Ashton led the EU delegation in an agreement that removed virtually all tariffs between the two economies.  
In November 2009 she represented the EU to end the twenty year old ‘banana wars’. "After so many twists and turns, these complicated and politically contentious disputes can finally be put to bed," said Pascal Lamy head of the World Trade Organisation, "It has taken so long that quite a few people who worked on the cases, both in the secretariat and in member governments have retired long ago”.

On 19 November 2009, Ashton was appointed the EU's first High Representative of the Union for Foreign Affairs and Security Policy. Her appointment was agreed by a summit of 27 European Union leaders in Brussels. After actively pushing for former British Prime Minister Tony Blairto become President of the European Council, Gordon Brown eventually relented on the condition that the High Representative position was awarded to a Briton.
Baroness Ashton receives a salary package of £328,000, which is larger than the salaries of UK Prime Minister David Cameron, French PresidentFrançois Hollande, or US President Barack Obama. However, it is lower than the salary of the President of the European Commission.
Ashton's position also presides over several European institutions, including the European Union Institute for Security Studies as the Chair of its Board.
Controversy surrounding appointment
Ashton's relative obscurity caused considerable comment in the media with The Guardian newspaper reporting that her appointment as High Representative had received a 'cautious welcome as EU foreign minister from international relations experts'. The Economist described her as being a virtual unknown with paltry political experience, having no foreign-policy background and having never been elected to anything. The magazine did however credit her with having piloted the Lisbon Treaty through the House of Lords, having handled the European Commission's trade portfolio without falling out with her colleagues, and being suited to consensus-building.
On the one hand, critics say she is likely to be out of her depth, never having been elected to any office. For example, on her appointment, the associate editor of The Spectator, and former editor of BBC Radio 4's Today programme, Rod Liddle, wrote: "Never elected by anyone, anywhere, totally unqualified for almost every job she has done, she has risen to her current position presumably through a combination of down-the-line Stalinist political correctness and the fact that she has the charisma of a caravan site on the Isle of Sheppey." According to The Guardian, an anonymous Whitehall source remarked: "Cathy just got lucky...The appointment of her and Herman Van Rompuy [as European Council president] was a complete disgrace. They are no more than garden gnomes." On the other hand, Shami Chakrabarti, the director of a pressure group called Liberty, who became friends with Ashton when she was a minister at the Department of Constitutional Affairs, said her critics were wrong: "People underestimate Cathy at their peril. She is not a great big bruiser. She is a persuader and a charmer. That is the secret of her success." Her friend, Ian McCartney, MP, said on her appointment: "She is a Wigan girl who has really made good... She is supportive of working people and has never forgotten her roots."The morning after her appointment, Ashton told BBC Radio 4's Today programme: "Over the next few months and years I aim to show that I am the best person for the job. I hope that my particular set of skills will show that in the end I am the best choice."
Responsibilities as High Representative
Further information: High Representative of the Union for Foreign Affairs and Security Policy
As High Representative of the Union for Foreign Affairs and Security Policy, a post that was combined with Vice-President of the European Commission, Ashton was elected by the Heads of State and Government of the 27 European Union countries at a summit in Brussels.
Besides representing the EU at international forums and coordinating the Common Foreign and Security Policy and the Common Security and Defence Policy, the High Representative also:
As Vice-President of the European Commission, she participates in the weekly meeting of the European Commission.

Is head of the European External Action Service
Responsible for the European Union Special Representatives
President of the Foreign Affairs Council
President of the European Defence Agency
Chair of the board of the European Union Institute for Security Studies
During her term in office she and her team have given priority to a number of European and global issues. These include:
Participation in the Quartet negotiations on the Middle East Peace Process
Leading European negotiations with Iran over its controversial Nuclear programme
Responding to the Arab Spring with a new European Neighbourhood Policy (May 2011), to provide funding and market access to North Africa
Supporting democratic forces in Libya by opening an EU office in Benghazi in May 2011 and supporting the National Transitional Council

In May 2012 as EU High Representative and working with EU Special Representative Alexander Rondos, she headed Operation Atalanta – an EU military action off the coast of Somalia, which curtailed piracy.
On 24th April 2013, she played a major role in brokering a deal between Serbia and Kosovo which normalised their ties. This followed her mediation of 10 rounds of talks between Serbia's Prime Minister Ivica Dacic and Hashim Thaci, Prime Minister of Kosovo.[
Ashton (far right) with the rest of the Quartet on the Middle East (2010)
Ashton faced questions in the European Parliament over her role as national treasurer in the Campaign for Nuclear Disarmament in the 1980s, amid claims by its opponents that it may have had financial links to the Soviet Union. The eurosceptic United Kingdom Independence Party has written to Jose Manuel Barroso, the European Commission President, asking him to investigate whether Ashton was party to payments that he alleged were made to CND from the Soviet regime in Moscow. Ashton’s office refused to discuss CND’s funding in detail. It merely said that she “left CND in 1983 and had no involvement after that”.
French journalist Agnès Poirier has criticized her for the fact that she cannot speak any foreign languages.
In February 2010, it emerged that Ashton had been heavily criticised within the EU community for a number of actions, including her failure to visitHaiti in the wake of the earthquake and her lack of leadership abilities during ministerial meetings and policy briefings. Senior officials within her team complained that she speaks only in "generalities". She was also criticised for a lack of commitment to the job, allegedly switching off her phone after 8 pm every day. Ashton came under further criticism, including explicit criticism from national defence ministers Hervé Morin, Carme Chacón, Jack de Vries, and EU minister Pierre Lellouche, for her failure to attend the European Defence Summit in Majorca.
In February 2011, Baroness Ashton received the lowest grade in a survey rating the performance of European Commissioners. The survey, carried out by lobbying and PR company Burson-Marsteller, asked 324 Brussels policy-makers to rate the European Commissioners with a grade A to E (A being the highest). Lady Ashton, a commission vice-president as well as the EU's high representative for foreign affairs, scored an E for her performance. She was the only Commissioner to receive a grade below D.
In March 2012, Ashton was criticised by several newspapers for comparing the shooting of Jewish children in Toulouse with the situation in Gaza. Ashton said to Palestinian youths at a UNRWA event, “When we think of what happened in Toulouse today, when we remember what happened in Norway a year ago, when we know what is happening in Syria, when we see what is happening in Gaza and Sderot and in different parts of the world – we remember young people and children who lose their lives.” After she was misquoted in the press as having not mentionedSderot, Israeli ministers denounced her for equating the murder of three children and a rabbi in the shooting attack with the situation in Gaza. Her spokesman stated that her remark had been “grossly distorted” and that she had also referenced Israeli victims in Sderot, but this fact had been incorrectly omitted from the original transcript.
In September 2012, the Daily Telegraph criticised her European Commission attendance record, reporting that Baroness Ashton had been completely absent from 21 out of 32 weekly meetings held so far that year.
Responses to criticism
Ashton has argued that much of the criticism she faces is a result of the "latent sexism" within the EU community. She has also told the press that the lack of resources provided to her, such as not having her own plane, is holding her back in her work.
European External Action Service (EEAS) Secretary General Pierre Vimont defended Ashton from criticism, stating that her work in opening the EEAA office in Benghazi, Libya has boosted the EEAS's popularity in Libya. He also supported her work on Syria and has asked her to stand for a second term. Polish Minister for European and Economic Affairs Mikolaj Dowgielewicz has also stated that criticism against Ashton is "a lot of hot air" and that "she has an impossible job to do and she is doing it well. At the end of her time in office, people will be more positive about what she has done. She will leave a real legacy."
Honours, awards and assessment
In February 2013 she was assessed as one of the 100 most powerful women in the United Kingdom by Woman's Hour on BBC Radio 4.
She lives in London with her husband, Peter Kellner, the President of online polling organisation, YouGov. She has two children, and three stepchildren.

statistician worked on 2 things at Price Waterhouse Coopers in 1990s - healthcare entrepreneurship and tryng to return common sense to EU. The week after your talk the japan ambassador and sir fazle celebrated my fathers ideas in dhaka. So there is a connecting logic in my madness ... Mark (ex mckinseys and inspired by yunus) is only person i know of wanting to develop a youth investment bank for Egypt. I dont know if his austrian backers would agree with above paradigm . However Shafqat links in bangladesh's most wizard youth open technologists and is discussing with larry brilliant and jeff skoll whether dhaka can be 2nd asian city to hub the risk prevention ILAB. Over next 4 weeks if sir fazle is happy with my open plan, I wil try and massively search mit students as well as re-offer to the 2 retiring students ceos of the mit100k that at least one of them needs go see sir fazle. Naila runs telecentres and used to be one of the international trailblazers of grameenphone in days when yunus had control over its culture -the vilage phone movement that my dad's great friend george soros was yunus original investor in along with the quadir family who are helping sir fazle design billion youth cashless banking ( the last way for borderless youth to escape macroeconomic death by currency wars and political zero sum gaming). Peter Ryan understands african village curriculum of microcredit better than anyone except sir fazle and my friend Ingrid Munro in Kenya who doesnt use email
window of opporunity - right now on any subject million youth need to online linkin first course on courera will viralise; by next year all the big university partnerships (and gates top-down billions) will be in death spiral of expensive pr trying to claim they are number 1 in each subject millions of youth need- so if bottom up collaborative people do not now make 2013 year of mooc then I expect orwell and einstein were right at least in europe and usa the fastest collasping economies youth have ever been trapped in (which in top down system terme is exactly why and what keynes wrote his general theory to prevent). There is only one american economist who even begins to understand how being the world's reserve currency and ecologically least sustainable nation are a diabolical reversal of everything that adam smith and declaration of independence meant by freedom
Zasheem edits journal of social business with adam smith scholars out of glssgow university, was first to dream up free nursing collegs. Glasgow is also sir fazle alma mater and the future capital sir tom hunter comes from - he who funded the startup of clinton global
matthew and I first wrote death by branding pr up for The Ecoonomist in 1994 - it would be good if we could write up life by branding unique purpose (which mackey's nurition curriculum friends call conscous capitalism by 2014!) .IF 1990s global-racing acountants properly modelled godwill as multi-win knowledge economy modeling then we would not be drowning in the greatest maths mistake ever committed.

Sunita Gandhi is the most connected person in her father's and the world's largest school at Lucknow http://www.cmseducation.org/ - we became good friends 10 years ago once I had dimly remembered soething dad and I first learnt in 1972 that only education entrepreneurs can be first to save youth when a single generation needs to innovate 10 times more syncchrinised (open) knowhow than history has yet produced. Her family are friends with India's former president Kalam (and chief scientist) authored the book India 2020 which demanded youth tear up all unsustainable curricula before 2020. India's current prime minister was at cambridge a few years after dad - his economics thesis how to design a world so that economics stopped comounding underclasses neith inside a nation nor by externalising onto neighbouring nations. I dont quite know why Manmoham Singh whose economics liberated india seems to have forgotten his own thesis when it comes to whether bangladesh will be spun into civil war or not as elections make it unsafe to visit after summer. http://www.considerbangladesh.com/

you, I spent the time off catching up and staying abreast with the latest developments and changes in the Internet. Today, I would like to share with you my thoughts over the holiday, along with some of the key points from our management discussion a few days ago.
What is Alibaba’s strategy?
In our opinion, we are now progressing from the conventional Information Technology (IT) era, to the new Data Technology (DT) era where the prime focus is on leveraging productivity. This is not just an upgrade of technology, but a major paradigm shift.
Our goal for the next 10 years: to establish a DT infrastructure for commercial development in China.
Since we adopted an “open data platform” strategy five years ago, we invested heavily on the “Cloud” (cloud computing and big data). From our observation today, even though the mobile “App” market is lucrative and promising, we should still continue to invest in the “Cloud”. The cloud platform (comprising “Cloud” + “App”) will be the key to the future of mobile internet. Although we are somewhat falling behind on the “App” aspect now, the good news is that the vibrant “App” market is still in its early stage.
This year, we will strike out from “Cloud” to “App” – with our might and determination, not circumstances.
How should Alibaba proceed in this mobile internet age?
Mobile commerce will be the most important aspect in mobile internet.
We have the largest merchandize, user, and transaction database in the world; the largest payment platform and credit system in the world; and the most secure and fastest cloud computing platform in the world… all these resources – we must learn to share them, and how to share them properly. Thus to develop an efficient and cost-effective commercial infrastructure, and enable more people to participants in the development of this new paradigm founded on Big Data.
We must move along with our hundreds of millions of customers to Data Technology (DT).
How? “Cloud” leads “App”, and “Cloud” enriches “App”. Create value out of data and enhance user experience. Speed up the development of the mobile commerce ecosystem.
And now each of you should know what your role is in this big picture.
What values should we hold on to?
Customer first. That’s everyone’s duty.
Be vigilant and cautious.
Cost conscious in spite of good financial health.
Dear all, Alibaba was never a follower of hot trends. Of the 15 years since we established, we gave up messaging, portal, games… we focused but only on e-commerce. For 15 years we strived and worked hard, bringing e-commerce from niche to mainstream, and now being part of our daily lives and a hot trend in its own right. We are proud – not because how much we have shipped or earned over a year, but because we have kindled the hopes of millions of entrepreneurs and innovators. We have created more than 15 million direct or indirect employment opportunities, and became a major tax payer in the country. We are honored to witness and take part in the economic reform and development of our nation.
Today, our management and operation efficiency is highly enhanced as we rely on our own cloud computing platform, which also supports almost 10 million e-commerce enterprises and countless number of mobile developers. Our cloud platform is seeing more businesses from others sectors such as financial, medical, administration, transportation, meteorology, large storage and content delivery. Cloud platform – we know it from the inside-out.
Concerning mobile internet, I do have my apprehensions. My anxieties, however, are not triggered by Tencent’s successful “Red Packet” campaign, or our ability to identify new entry points into the market, or whether or not we can come up with a few killer apps. My worries are, we could easily lose our directions in the comfort and satisfaction of self-assurance, or being too mindful of competition. As such, we might lose sight of what we are best at, what we should do in the next 3 years, how many traditional enterprises are waiting to embrace mobile commerce, and how many new commercial frontiers are out there waiting for our discovery. We might just forget we need to keep climbing to our goals each and every day.
It’s only when we understand what we have, what we need, what to give up, then we won’t lose our directions.
Competition is omnipresent in the commercial world – there’s always someone out there who can do a better job than us, or there’s always surprise or shock brought by innovation and technology… nonetheless, we commit ourselves to do better than our competitors in positively driving the economy – because this is our reward and opportunity.
From this very moment on there’s much that we need to accomplish. Let me remind you all, we shall strictly commit to our “Customer First” principle. Each of you will soon feel the difference we are making for 2014.
2014 is the year of “Cloud” + “App”, and Alibaba is “ALL-IN” with mobile-commerce. Each of you please be vigilant and stay on guard, so that your teammates can confidently trust their backs with you. We are on the same boat, and this boat today is more than just the 25,000 of us…
Change and revolution will inevitably bring about pain and discomfort to each of us. But in 10 years, China’s commercial landscape shall become more transparent, open, trustworthy, and prosperous – because of our hard work today.
Your pain and discomfort shall be the trophy of your commitment!
Jack Ma - Executive Chairman of Alibaba Group
29 Feb 2014
Aug 19, 2014 | 02:36 PM
The city of the future may look a little like this: you swipe your phone to buy a ticket when boarding a bus that runs on a schedule derived from data about passenger loads. When you get to your destination, your phone pushes you offers for restaurants, hotels, and shops nearby while you pay for everything on the go with only your smartphone.
This virtually cashless city where algorithms crunch data to predict your preferences is already becoming reality in Hangzhou, China, where a tie-up between e-payments provider Alipay; AliCloud, the networking and data arm of e-commerce giant Alibaba Group; and the district government has led to the creation of a “big data” zone, where consumers can shop without their wallets at 400 retails and entertainment outlets.
Jack Ma, Alibaba Group’s founder and executive chairman, predicted that in five years information technology will shift into an era where the big, life-changing advances will originate from big data and cloud computing industries. AliCloud, responsible for developing data technologies already in use by hundreds of thousands of China’s small businesses, is positioned to benefit from this shift by making big-data analysis accessible and useful to all companies, not just giant corporations.
Last month, AliCloud rolled out a platform that seeks to make it easier and cheaper for any company in China to crunch data using its propriety algorithms. The platform, called an Open Data Processing Service or ODPS for short, was previously only available to Taobao Marketplace and Tmall.com merchants. Companies only need to pay a fee of a few hundred Renminbi each month to use the platform.
ODPS works a bit like an electrical adaptor--companies plug their data into the platform and then key in the parameters they want to analyze. Using ODPS’s cloud computing power and algorithms, they can then extract valuable nuggets of information to use in their businesses.
For example, an apparel company on Tmall can input their historical sales data into ODPS and then select search parameters. “Our algorithms will be able to scan and predict things like future sales, or which products will sell well in the next season,” said Tang Zinan, the AliCloud ODPS product manager.
ODPS’s secret sauce is its sheer computing power. It has the ability to process in six hours 100 petabtyes of data, equivalent about 100 million high-definition movies. Allowing companies to tap this power without heavy capital spending on IT infrastructure is game-changing for smaller companies, Tang said.
AliCloud’s President Ben Wang announced on Tuesday, a plan to build a comprehensive cloud eco-system in China by recruiting thousands of industry partners and experts, in order to wean Chinese companies off the traditional methods of data processing, which require high infrastructure and software costs.
“The high capital costs involved in building data centers or hiring data engineers is not a problem for large companies, but it is not possible for small companies to achieve this,” Tang said. “ODPS allows small companies to be on the same footing as large companies when it comes to the ability to analyze data. We are essentially leveling the playing field for everyone.”
Currently, the main users of the ODPS platform are retailers and advertisers on Taobao Marketplace, Tmall.com, and Internet marketing service Alimama, who use it predict consumer trends, detect popular keywords and in other ways to give their businesses an edge.
ODPS is also used by Alibaba’s related companies such as Small and Micro Financial Services Company (SMFSC) and some Chinese insurance companies to assess creditworthiness. For example, the small business enterprise loan unit formerly known as Ali-Loan has been using ODPS to examine the loan applications of thousands of small online businesses, Tang said. By analyzing an applicant’s store transaction data, logistics data and store rating, the loan team is able to see if the applicant is eligible for a loan and what the loan cap should be.
Even Alibaba’s scannable drug technology, which aims to make every package of pharmaceutical drug sold in China traceable electronically, has its underlying technology routed through ODPS.
From loans to pharmaceuticals, Alibaba is placing big bets on big data and cloud technology. But the company’s strategy is not just focused on analysis, but also on storage of data and the creation of synergies between various government institutions, banks and hospitals, to create personalized and more intuitive services for users.
Technology consultancy IDC estimates that cloud spending will jump by 25 percent in 2014 to over $100 billion while spending on big data technologies and services will grow by 30 percent to more than $14 billion as the demand for big data analytics continues to rise.
The commercial district in Hangzhou is the latest addition to the ever expanding service scope of Alipay Wallet, Alipay’s mobile application. Alipay Wallet has been expanding its offline-to-offline functions and integrating it with back-end big data technology to give users a seamless experience. In June, Alipay Wallet started teaming up with hospitals across China to let patients book doctor appointments, receive test results and make hospital bill payments through their mobile phones. Alipay is also working with more Chinese city governments to widen the use of near field communication technology for passenger payments in subways and buses.
“Big data is such a hot trend that every industry hopes to be one driven by data,” Tang said. “ODPS can be that underlying platform to enable business.”.
