Pivotal’s major clients include China Railway Corp. (CRC), the world’s largest rail operator. It said it helped CRC improve and optimize its notoriously inefficient ticket-booking app.
Like CRC, businesses in the traditional industries, including finance and manufacturing, are increasingly willing to pay for software and related services, just like those in the U.S., said Lei Feng, Pivotal Software’s China chief.
In an interview with Caixin, Feng said the company sees the growing demand from traditional businesses to adapt to the fast-changing internet era, where big data is critical. This has offered cloud providers huge opportunities.
