What does the public utility cloud can bring to us? Zhang Haijun answered this question from the view of natural gas industry in his speech "Internet + smart gas cloud solution".
“Currently, there are four major problems in the gas industry: low engagement caused by the high cost of informatization, low operation efficiency of “pipe + end”, decreased gross profit and low customer satisfaction. Goldcard ESlink dissected all these problems professionally, and to push the integration of computing cloud, big data and IoT into the all aspects of natural gas operation.
