Australia’s biggest tech talent solution provider Alibaba has signed up to work with Amazon in building a cloud based talent solution.
The Australian tech giant’s latest partnership with Amazon will see the two companies work together to create a cloud talent solution for Australian IT talent.
“We are excited to be working with the world’s largest cloud service provider and are looking forward to working with you in the coming years,” Alibaba CEO Dan Zhou said in a statement.
“This partnership will create a platform that enables Australian talent to achieve greater productivity, engagement, and growth.”
Alibaba, which has more than 1,500,000 employees, has been one of the most aggressive investors in the tech industry in recent years, making acquisitions including Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn and WhatsApp.
Alibaba is a major investor in Amazon, which it has partnered with on a number of projects in the past.
“Amazon is one of a number that we are seeing in the next few years that we see as the platform of choice for companies to develop a cloud solution for their employees and customers,” Alibaba Chief Technology Officer Tony Chen said.
“Alibaba is looking to work together with Amazon on a global cloud solution that provides employees and business customers with more control over their time, and more access to the cloud to work from wherever they are.”
Alibaba also announced plans for a new Australian employee portal, Alibaba.com, which will be launched in the second half of 2018.
The portal will provide users with a portal to share their job details, as well as search for the best local job opportunities, and offer job boards and other information to help employers and employees navigate their careers.
“The Alibaba portal will help companies and employees alike understand where their potential is, and provide them with information and tools that will help them build a career in the cloud,” Alibaba said.
The Alibaba portal is expected to launch in the first quarter of 2019.
Alibaba will also partner with Amazon, as part of its Cloud Computing, AI and Big Data platform, to create cloud solutions for the Australian market.
