shift to enterprise

What is EMERGE?


A deep dive into emerging China tech trends

Emerge was born when we saw that there is an enormous information gap about emergent technology trends in China. We want to empower our community of entrepreneurs and professionals by helping them understand China through expert analysis and insight. Our online content is already recognized as the best out there. Now it’s time to bring that offline.

Why now?

We want to empower our community of entrepreneurs and professionals by helping them understand China through expert analysis and insight. Our online content is already recognized by many as the best out there, hence it’s about time we bring it on with a deep dive, meaningful, content-focused tech live conference, and not just any China tech 101 event that we're all too busy to waste time attending.

 

Here’s what we’re focused on in 2019:

  • Artificial intelligence: Can ethical AI actually exist in China?
  • Blockchain: Without crypto, who’s making the money?
  • How digital marketing is changing and how brands are trying to keep up
  • How will China’s slowing economy affect the tech industry?
  • China tech landscape’s shift from consumer-focused to enterprise-focused
  • Corporate innovation: How can large companies take advantage of China speed?
  • Telling China stories to Southeast Asia and India

5.23 Emerge Shanghai | The 2B Shift

 

China’s tech space was built on the back of growing affluence and the “consumption upgrade” of China’s increasingly connected population. However, as the giants have expanded and niche’s fill up, the number of new opportunities for growth in the consumer space is quickly dwindling.

Ecosystem Alibaba, Tencent, and Bytedance are now eyeing the enterprise space in hopes of creating and taking advantage of the immature market.

Surprising to realize, but much of the growth in the tech space had nothing to do with applying technology to business operations. Instead, companies were able to hire more people and wring extra productivity from them. Propelled by rising wages and increasing demand for work-life balance from their employees, China’s small and medium enterprises find themselves actually needing technology in their business.

At Emerge, our 2B Shift panel will explore the forces creating the new blue enterprise ocean as well as the opportunities for enterprise-facing companies. Our panel of experts and industry players will be exploring these key areas:

  • Why is the shift to enterprise happening now?
  • Why hasn’t China produced an SAP or Oracle?
  • How seriously are China’s BAT taking the shift to enterprise?
  • Are we seeing any actual deployment of enterprise services?
