On July 26, Michael was also invited to the Partner Summit, sharing Deloitte's analysis of digital transformations by SOEs and how Deloitte helps enterprises realize digital transformations.

According to Michael, Deloitte has been working with The State-owned Assets Supervision and Administration Commission (SASAC) for years on benchmarking state-owned enterprises against globally leading organizations. In 2019, Deloitte published Benchmark World-Class Enterprises, a book in which it defined world-class enterprises and their 10 core competence elements.

Michael put forward three suggestions for large SOEs looking at digital transformations: 1) analyze the challenges and priorities of digital transformation based on industry positioning; 2) understand that the three investment domains of SOE digital transformations include the enhancement of customer experience, digital platform establishment and data acquisition / processing / analytics; 3) realize cloud will play a crucial role in enterprise digital transformations.

At the end of his address, on behalf of Deloitte, he proposed comprehensive cooperation with Alibaba Cloud as well as other ecosystem partners to fully exploit market opportunities and reach mutually beneficial results.
