SEOUL, November 1 (Korea Bizwire) – As the Fair Trade Commission steps up pressure on conglomerates to reduce reliance on intra-group IT services transactions, their IT service subsidiaries are looking for ways to survive through income diversification.
Samsung SDS Co., an IT services unit of the Samsung group, revealed on a conference call last week that its growth strategy is to expand its outside business into cloud computing and logistics.
Particularly in the area of IT services, the company plans to expand its external customer base focused on cloud computing and next-generation enterprise resource planning (ERP) activities.
In addition, the company is stepping up efforts to secure unaffiliated logistics customers by launching the “Cello Square 4.0” digital logistics platform targeting SMEs and mid-sized businesses.
LG CNS Co. is also striving to expand its external business in cloud computing and smart logistics, while trying to diversify its revenue through new businesses such as My Data.
Prior to this decision, it strengthened its cloud business by launching the integrated cloud operating service “CloudXper ProOps” which covers infrastructure, application system and security.
Through this service, the company can apply a variety of new information technologies such as custom hybrid, multicloud, artificial intelligence and big data, as well as cloud spending optimization.
SK C&C Co. is also committed to expanding its cloud-based digital platform strategy, aimed at strengthening its digital transformation business through cooperation with global companies.
In collaboration with consulting firm Kearney Korea LLC, the company developed a solution to diagnose the client’s level of digital transformation.
In addition, to promote the digital transformation of companies, it also plans to provide all-in-one support covering architecture design and the implementation of platforms and solutions.
