China's Leading Business School Advances Bold Strategy for Global Integration with International Business

BEIJING, Dec. 18, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Dean Xiang Bing of Cheung Kong Graduate School of Business (CKGSB) has discussed the school's strategy for global expansion impacting markets in Europe, the U.S. and Asia following the school's 10th anniversary in Beijing. Leaders at the school were joined by China's business elite and key influencers from around the world in November. 

A key aspect of the school's global strategy is partnerships with elite business schools in Europe, the US, Asia and high-growth emerging markets to provide executive-level educational programs. These will be driven by overseas branches already open in Hong Kong, London and New York and planned for next year in Tokyo and Singapore. Insights into the China market and the global implications of China's transformations made through robust primary research will inform executive curricula and provide unique perspectives.

CKGSB's China Business Conditions Index (CBCI) is one example of the school's powerful primary research capabilities. It maps business confidence through direct interviews and surveys of over 200 Chinese business leaders in major public and private sectors.

Renowned for robust analytics and insights into business dynamics by a world-class faculty, CKGSB has become equally recognized for its highly influential alumni network. Combined, the network's members, including 2,500 CEOs and Chairmen, are responsible for $1 trillion USD in annual revenue and represent one fifth of China's most valuable brands.

CKGSB's Dean, Dr. Xiang Bing said "Currently more than half of our Executive MBA enrollees are CEOs or Chairmen and our alumni network includes many of China's most successful business leaders. We are leveraging our position as the preferred choice of China's top business leaders to build a new global platform that will impact overseas markets through China-informed education and training for global C-suite executives. The goal is to equip national and international heads with what they need for their distinctive business operations to succeed in and in relation to China."

The school has assembled a European Advisory Board composed of leadership from key sectors to guide the school's strategy and extend its global reach. The Advisory Board includes Sir Tom Hunter, Founder, West Coast Capital; Sir Victor Blank, Trade Ambassador, UK Trade and Investment; Malcolm Sweeting, Senior Partner, Clifford Chance; Dr. Ralf Speth, CEO, Jaguar Land Rover; and Dr. Karl-Ulrich Kohler, CEO, Tata Steel Europe, among others. Similar advisory bodies will be assembled for other priority markets.

Commenting on the impact of CKGSB's unique China insights for Western markets, Malcolm Sweeting stated that, "[CKGSB] gives us a view on globalization through a China lens...it is valuable for our senior management to listen to the views of experts at the CKGSB [which] gives us perspective to make very important decisions around our business."

Today we can collect lots and lots of performance data. We build beautiful dashboards and even have fancy query languages to access and transform the data. Still performance data is a secret language only a couple of people understand. The more business becomes digital the more stakeholders are interested in this data including how it relates to business. Some of these people have never used a monitoring tool before. They have a question on their mind like “How is my application doing” but no id...
Join us at Cloud Expo June 6-8 to find out how to securely connect your cloud app to any cloud or on-premises data source – without complex firewall changes. More users are demanding access to on-premises data from their cloud applications. It’s no longer a “nice-to-have” but an important differentiator that drives competitive advantages. It’s the new “must have” in the hybrid era. Users want capabilities that give them a unified view of the data to get closer to customers and grow business. The...
The current age of digital transformation means that IT organizations must adapt their toolset to cover all digital experiences, beyond just the end users’. Today’s businesses can no longer focus solely on the digital interactions they manage with employees or customers; they must now contend with non-traditional factors. Whether it's the power of brand to make or break a company, the need to monitor across all locations 24/7, or the ability to proactively resolve issues, companies must adapt to...
IoT solutions exploit operational data generated by Internet-connected smart “things” for the purpose of gaining operational insight and producing “better outcomes” (for example, create new business models, eliminate unscheduled maintenance, etc.). The explosive proliferation of IoT solutions will result in an exponential growth in the volume of IoT data, precipitating significant Information Governance issues: who owns the IoT data, what are the rights/duties of IoT solutions adopters towards t...
It is ironic, but perhaps not unexpected, that many organizations who want the benefits of using an Agile approach to deliver software use a waterfall approach to adopting Agile practices: they form plans, they set milestones, and they measure progress by how many teams they have engaged. Old habits die hard, but like most waterfall software projects, most waterfall-style Agile adoption efforts fail to produce the results desired. The problem is that to get the results they want, they have to ch...
With the introduction of IoT and Smart Living in every aspect of our lives, one question has become relevant: What are the security implications? To answer this, first we have to look and explore the security models of the technologies that IoT is founded upon.

The material was delivered interac...
Wooed by the promise of faster innovation, lower TCO, and greater agility, businesses of every shape and size have embraced the cloud at every layer of the IT stack – from apps to file sharing to infrastructure. The typical organization currently uses more than a dozen sanctioned cloud apps and will shift more than half of all workloads to the cloud by 2018. Such cloud investments have delivered measurable benefits. But they’ve also resulted in some unintended side-effects: complexity and risk. ...
The taxi industry never saw Uber coming. Startups are a threat to incumbents like never before, and a major enabler for startups is that they are instantly “cloud ready.” If innovation moves at the pace of IT, then your company is in trouble.

In his session at 20th Cloud Expo, Don Browning, VP of Cloud Architecture at Turner, posited that disruption is inevitable for comp...
In 2014, Amazon announced a new form of compute called Lambda. We didn't know it at the time, but this represented a fundamental shift in what we expect from cloud computing. Now, all of the major cloud computing vendors want to take part in this disruptive technology.

While DevOps most critically and famously fosters collaboration, communication, and integration through cultural change, culture is more of an output than an input. In order to actively drive cultural evolution, organizations must make substantial organizational and process changes, and adopt new technologies, to encourage a DevOps culture.

When growing capacity and power in the data center, the architectural trade-offs between server scale-up vs. scale-out continue to be debated. Both approaches are valid: scale-out adds multiple, smaller servers running in a distributed computing model, while scale-up adds fewer, more powerful servers that are capable of running larger workloads. It’s worth noting that there are additional, unique advantages that scale-up architectures offer. One big advantage is large memory and compute capacity...
Cloud applications are seeing a deluge of requests to support the exploding advanced analytics market. “Open analytics” is the emerging strategy to deliver that data through an open data access layer, in the cloud, to be directly consumed by external analytics tools and popular programming languages. An increasing number of data engineers and data scientists use a variety of platforms and advanced analytics languages such as SAS, R, Python and Java, as well as frameworks such as Hadoop and Spark...
