Deloitte, a leading consulting firm both at home and abroad, offers consulting services and suggestions on reform and transformation to traditional enterprises by leveraging its rich industry experience, application capabilities of cloud technology, as well as the leading Ali Cloud platform. Cloud computing service is a major area provided by Deloitte Consulting's technology team to various large and medium-sized enterprises in 2016.
