The company launched in 2012 with Bodhi and Friends, the award-winning 3D animated television series produced by an international creative team from the United States, Japan and China. Bodhi and Friends engages young children in a world of adventure, amazing inventions and magical powers. As Bodhi and his friends work together to protect their home from evil invaders, an underlying moral theme and positive values are woven into each episode.

CIT has produced 108 episodes of Bodhi and Friends to date, with another season currently in production. The series is a hit in China, airing on over 120 prime channels and portals. It has been honored with numerous awards in China. CIT is seeking distribution partners for both broadcast and licensing in all global markets.

CIT is also developing the online, multi-platform interactive English Learning Platform (ELP), an innovative cross-platform 3D multimedia experience. ELP is designed to help children 3-12 learn critical English phonics, vocabulary, grammar, listening skills and native English, as it aims to instill a genuine love of language.

Developed by an international team of prestigious educators, ELP is based on the eight multiple intelligence right brain/left brain learning domains, aligned to the Cambridge Young Learners ExaminationTM. Students learn to listen and speak through hearing authentic, native English-speaking children with diverse accents speaking and singing modern music, composed and recorded by professionals from around the world. The content, all of which originates in China, includes more than 680 expert created 3D online animated lessons, interactive content, songs and games. This horizontal integration of a range of types of content, makes ELP unique in the Chinese market.

CIT CEO and Founder Poman Lo has established Bodhi Love Foundation to support significant charity initiatives, especially relating to the health and education needs of underprivileged children.

In collaboration with nongovernmental organizations, Poman is lining up strategic alliances with the most influential industry partners to recruit children as ambassadors to champion every child’s right to play. Moreover, to support the Next Generation Education Foundation, Poman launched a large-scale campaign distributing 200,000 coin banks to children in schools across China. Children are encouraged to save and donate pocket money to the less fortunate.

CIT is part of a prominent international group based in Hong Kong that spans multiple industries – hospitality, technology, properties and investments. The management team is headed by Poman Lo, an entrepreneurial executive, with a track record of successfully developing companies. Poman is Vice Chairman of Century City International Holdings Ltd., a group of five public companies in Hong Kong. In addition, she is Managing Director of Regal Hotels, the largest hotel group in Hong Kong.

Poman was awarded a scholarship to attend Duke University when she was fifteen years old and graduated from Duke four years later with a BA in Psychology. She is a native of Hong Kong.

For far too long technology teams have lived in siloes. Not only physical siloes, but cultural siloes pushed by competing objectives. This includes informational siloes where business users require one set of data and tech teams require different data. DevOps intends to bridge these gaps to make tech driven operations more aligned and efficient.
IoT is at the core or many Digital Transformation initiatives with the goal of re-inventing a company's business model. We all agree that collecting relevant IoT data will result in massive amounts of data needing to be stored. However, with the rapid development of IoT devices and ongoing business model transformation, we are not able to predict the volume and growth of IoT data. And with the lack of IoT history, traditional methods of IT and infrastructure planning based on the past do not app...
For organizations that have amassed large sums of software complexity, taking a microservices approach is the first step toward DevOps and continuous improvement / development. Integrating system-level analysis with microservices makes it easier to change and add functionality to applications at any time without the increase of risk. Before you start big transformation projects or a cloud migration, make sure these changes won’t take down your entire organization.
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...
Organizations planning enterprise data center consolidation and modernization projects are faced with a challenging, costly reality. Requirements to deploy modern, cloud-native applications simultaneously with traditional client/server applications are almost impossible to achieve with hardware-centric enterprise infrastructure. Compute and network infrastructure are fast moving down a software-defined path, but storage has been a laggard. Until now.
Without a clear strategy for cost control and an architecture designed with cloud services in mind, costs and operational performance can quickly get out of control. To avoid multiple architectural redesigns requires extensive thought and planning. Boundary (now part of BMC) launched a new public-facing multi-tenant high resolution monitoring service on Amazon AWS two years ago, facing challenges and learning best practices in the early days of the new service.
Digital Transformation is much more than a buzzword. The radical shift to digital mechanisms for almost every process is evident across all industries and verticals. This is often especially true in financial services, where the legacy environment is many times unable to keep up with the rapidly shifting demands of the consumer. The constant pressure to provide complete, omnichannel delivery of customer-facing solutions to meet both regulatory and customer demands is putting enormous pressure on...
