The Epidemic Pushes China抯 Digital Economy Into the Fast Lane
After the outbreak of the Covid-19 pandemic, in countries endowed with better digital infrastructure, the demand for medical digitization has exploded, and the digital industry hence witnessed rapid development. Office automation software, for example, acquired many more users than usual. Within two months after its launch, Tencent Meeting抯 daily active accounts have exceeded 10 million.
In an interview with a Caijing reporter, Tang Daosheng, President of Tencent Cloud, said that he believes that online working and online study were originally intended to respond to the epidemic, but they will not disappear immediately.

Chinese SaaS Software Developers Need to do More than Copy Competitors
This round of the epidemic has brought several companies success. In addition to China抯 online collaboration software, which has quickly succeeded, two other companies, Zoom and Slack, have also become popular. Since the outbreak of the pandemic, the market value of these two companies has risen by nearly 50 billion US dollars. The success of these two SaaS software companies make their Chinese counterparts envious. However, China抯 enterprise service market environment is quite different from that of the United States, and it is impossible to imitate the success model of American companies. The author believes that regardless of the size of a company, it should decisively embrace the enterprise collaboration platform. This not only helps the person in charge of the enterprise to improve the overall efficiency of the company, but also helps to improve the work efficiency and sense of belonging of the employees.
Being too anxious to become a platform company is the key reason why many SaaS software developers cannot achieve the market success they aspired to. It抯 like a product that doesn抰 have popularity, but its producer is still thinking about how to make money.
