OVERVIEW
Royal Philips wanted to launch its cloud-based healthcare solution HealthSuite Digital Platform in China to deliver services to help cope with challenges related to urbanization and population growth. Philips wanted to achieve this goal by combining mobile, cloud computing and big data technologies.

To bring this platform and product to market, Philips required cloud computing and local technical service capabilities in China, in addition to a flexible IT infrastructure that could handle user requests.
Royal Philips
Alibaba Cloud subsequently entered into an agreement to provide IT infrastructure services for Philips HealthSuite Digital Platform in China. Philips utilizes Alibaba Cloud Elastic Compute Service (ECS), Object Storage Service (OSS), ApsaraDB for RDS, and other security services and wireless communication infrastructure to deliver services to its customers.

Mature (technology has been on the market for >5 years)
OPERATIONAL IMPACT
Alibaba Cloud's services has enabled Philips to quickly roll out its healthcare services and focus on providing quality service to its customers, instead of spending time and resources building and installing an IT infrastructure to serve customers.
The Alibaba Cloud Pay-As-You-Go model for elasticity makes it a cost-effective solution.
Philips' new smart air purifier(a flagship offering to be launched on the HealthSuite Platform) is also deployed on Alibaba Cloud’s cloud service and supports 2G, 3G, 4G, and Wi-Fi networks to deliver real-time connectivity.
