Executive Opinion

Bloomberg Intelligence analyst Vey-Sern Ling said of the cloud division, said, "The key focus in the medium term is to gain scale, in customers, infrastructure and product offerings. Profitability is not a near-term focus. The amount they are spending over three years should be just about equivalent to the revenue they generate, keeping the segment at a near-break-even level as it has been for the past few quarters."

In a Bloomberg report President of the Alibaba Cloud Intelligence division, Jeff Zhang, said, "By increasing our investment on cloud infrastructure and fundamental technologies, we hope to continue providing world-class, trusted computing resources to help businesses speed up the recovery process, and offer cloud-based intelligent solutions to support their digital transformation in the post-pandemic world."
