JD.com Improving Cloud Computing Technologies December 6, 2018

Cloud Native Computing Foundation (CNCF) specializes in open source software to improve cloud computing possibilities. At the KubeCon and CloudNativeCon conference held in November this year, they awarded JD.com (China’s top eCommerce company), also known by many as Jingdong Mall;  the “Top End User Award”v. As Jingdong heavily uses CNCF products and has worked closely with the foundation to improve those products, this close partnership exemplified how two companies can create something greater than one alone.

 

With over a trillion images in their product database, providing customers with a top quality experience requires vast amounts of processing power at ever greater speeds. Consequently, Jingdong has partnered with CNCF to use Kubernetes, and currently they have one of the largest Kubernetes clusters worldwide.

 

This makes sense as they are one of the largest retailers in the world. In order to stay ahead of competition and to continuously improve a customer experience, Jingdong perpetually seeks new technology advancements, especially ones that contribute to big data and AI technologies. One way they have achieved this, has been their close partnership with CNCF, and in April, they became a platinum end user.

 

This new designation was in recognition of all the work that Jingdong has done in partnership with CNCF. Jingdong has worked on projects such as Vitess, Prometheus, and Kubernetes as well as other projects, in an effort to improve the code. As a customer, Jingdong has benefited directly from working on these projects, especially the Vitess cluster management project. Vitess allows Jingdong to maintain resource flexibility while reducing maintenance and operation costs, which is good for the company’s bottom line. Go Here for related Information.

 

These mutual beneficial collaborations made Jingdong the obvious choice for the “Top End User Award”. And in the ever changing IT industry, Jingdong Mall and CNCF will continue this mutually beneficial partnership and continue to innovate and improve their technology.

The lab development venture was announced in Beijing during its launching event.

 

From the information collected, the lab called “Urban Smart Logistics Institute”, will concentrate on providing solutions to stability and efficiency problems that are substantial obstacles blocking the blockchain application in the broader area. The lab will use its resources in exploring new areas in which the technology can be applied including the multi-layer joint research forces into essential research protocols, decentralized security in applications, privacy protection and many more.

 

The established research lab will be headed by three experienced professionals from the three parties who are Dr. Jian Pei, the head of JD Big Data and Smart Supply Chains, Dr. Qiang Tang from Ying Wu College of Computing Assistant Professor, and Dr. Zhenfeng Zhang who is the senior deputy engineer at ISCAS.

Beijing, Shanghai, And Rural China: JD.com Delivery Under 20 Hours According To CEO Richard Liu Qiangdong November 13, 2018

 

Richard Liu needed money to pay for medical care for his sick grandmother, coming from a poor family. He didn’t have the money to travel abroad either like most other kids at the venerable Renmin University. He got a four-square meter store selling computer accessories and got good at it so that there were twelve stores. SARS came along, and he didn’t want his staff to be hit because “talking face to face was high risk”. So, he closed the 12 shops, at noodles, and stayed at home. Why not sell online? he thought with his managers.

After comparing the figures, Richard Liu Qiangdong realized that online sales made more sense because it was a better experience for his customers all around. Amazon was not very well known at the time. He had only heard of DangDang at the time: it was number one at the time in China.

Richard Liu Qiangdong grew his company rapidly by not selling counterfeit products and services, so he wanted “new rules” for the market that was more of a white hat experience. Proper receipts and everything. They expanded into mobile phones, and every year they added new products. Today, the company has a market of around 30 billion USD. 160,000 employees currently work for JD.com, and in 2017 they added 30,000 workers.

The biggest market value amongst online Chinese stores is TenCent, then Baidu, then JD.com. “As an ecommerce provider, we want to be number one. We have finance, logistics, and it takes time to be number one.” JD delivers around the world: “New York, London, Paris”, et cetera.

This year the global delivery is not as good as it is in China, where it would only take on average 6 hours. 57% of goods will be delivered within 6 hours, and 97% will be delivered within 20 hours. Not just Beijing and Shanghai, but in rural areas this applies as well.” View Additional Info Here.

The Beginning of Alex Pall of The ChainSmokers November 9, 2018

Many of us have sung along to the tunes of “Closer”, “Don’t Let Me Down”, “Something Just Like This”, and “Roses”. The power duo behind the beats, The Chainsmokers, are an electronic dance music (EDM) group. Rising in popularity, their songs have climbed the charts.

In an article, “Closer” in collaboration with Halsey had just released. In it, The Chainsmokers wanted a voice fused with their crafted beats. As many of us know, EDM normally focuses on the beats produced by the DJ and not so much on vocals. The Chainsmokers wanted to evolve from that and create their own brand of EDM. The Chainsmokers, a duo consisting of Alex Pall and Andrew Taggart were asked in an interview on how they met. To summarize, they were introduced by their manager, who coincidentally shared the same one. Once they met, it was like a rocket taking off. There was no turning back. Alex Pall, initially DJing as a hobby, started his journey DJing around New York City. DJing was a side hustle for Alex Pall at the time, however, in the interview, he indicated it wasn’t just about that. He said that he was “really passionate” about DJing. Meanwhile, while in Maine, Andrew Taggart was in college. He stated that he was into electronic music before it really took off in the mainstream. His interest peaked and started producing his own work. He released a few of his work and took part in a couple shows. This quickly inspired him to pursue DJing even further. Once Alex and Andrew met, they began working together immediately. A few years later, the duo became The Chainsmokers. The interview goes on to ask various questions about their chemistry and constructing “strong identities as artists”.

The Chainsmokers later reveal that the songs they produce are personal, that it was about their lives. They go on to describe what it was like collaborating with Halsey and the pressures they feel in performing for their audience. They wanted to give their audience a grand performance and to deliver the best experience possible to them. They felt compelled to evolve their performance each time.

Richard Liu Qiangdong: A Business Of Honor October 18, 2018

 

There was a recent video interview published on Weforum.org with Richard Liu Qiangdong titled “An Insight, an Idea with Richard Liu”.

Richard Liu spoke with Mr. Rubenstein about some of the success he has experience with JD online. JD is short for Jingdong Mall. This business was originally founded in 1998 and features of the combined name of Richard Liu and his then-girlfriend. In 2003 the SARS virus hit China and forced Richard Liu to move his business online. He explains to Mr. Rubenstein that he made this decision because he wanted to protect his workforce and increases revenue. In 2004, JD.com went live. The brand-new Internet retailer began selling computer parts and phone accessories. It was a time of substantial growth for the company.

 

One of the biggest problems that Liu Quiangdong discusses with his interviewer about the online retail market when he started was the consistency of product quality and presentation. It seemed to be a sort of no man’s land when it came to the rulebook. Richard Liu wanted to find a way to set ground rules for the industry. It had become a tense situation for customers and retailers alike. Customers do not feel as though they could trust the retail giants that were providing them with their products. Many of the big brands were being counterfeited and presented as originals. It was a time of great concern. Get More Information Here.

 

JD.com has grown substantially over the years. At the beginning of the interview, Mr. Rubenstein talks about the fact that it is considered to be one of the biggest retailers in China. The company has done so well that it is now worth over $50 billion dollars. This means that the company is one of the biggest retailers in China at this time. Richard Liu has displayed a tremendous amount of pride and honor when conducting his business. JD.com is important to him when he presents himself to the world. He tells his interviewer that he wants JD.com to be representative of how he thinks that business should be conducted. He even expresses interests in moving his enterprise to a worldwide option. The next step in Liu Quiangdong’s plan for success is coming up soon in the future.
