Alibaba recently launched an initiative that it says will help companies of all sizes, across a wide array of industries, embrace digital transformation.

The program, dubbed A100, marks another step by Hangzhou-based Alibaba Group to expand its footprint beyond new retail, and represents the latest shift to enterprise-facing tech, which recently has been gaining momentum in China.

A100 will be powered by Alibaba Business Operating System, a term used by the company to refer to its amalgamation of technology services, including online marketplaces like Taobao and Tmall, payment tool Alipay, logistics Cainiao, cloud computing Alibaba Cloud, and productivity tool DingTalk.
