Tech in Asia - Connecting Asia's startup ecosystem

Nguyen Trieu Khang's insight:
Very nice infographic to give an idea on the startup dynamic in Singapore, its strengths and the challenges. As a whole, I think that as Singapore's geographical territory is just comparable to a big city in other countries, Singaporean startups should consider a bigger playground right from the start, like ASEAN and not limiting themselves to Singapore. Is ASEAN flexible enough to enable a Singaporean startup to start with minimum constraints (shipping taxes, etc...) and rules just like at home ? On this I am not sure but this is something Singapore could really focus on to back its startups if this is not the case.

Tech in Asia - Connecting Asia's startup ecosystem | Digital Tech & Innovation | Scoop.it
Nguyen Trieu Khang's insight:

Hong Kong is still a small place for startup industry, although rising fast. Both Hong Kong and Singapore share some challenges they have to overcome if they don't want to be left behind: investors there are quite risk adverse, much more than in Silicon Valley, probably because of many of them coming from the banking sector. And being a tech / dev there is seen as low cast, everyone wants to be a manager... When tech / dev are the stars in Silicon Valley.

The Real Reason Companies Are Spending Less on Tech

The Real Reason Companies Are Spending Less on Tech | Digital Tech & Innovation | Scoop.it
It’s getting cheaper.
Nguyen Trieu Khang's insight:
IT is indeed cheaper but it's also thanks to IT innovations (cloud pay per use model, continuous delivery...). That's why you can create more value with your IT with the same investment today than 10 years ago. That's also why startups with very little cashflow can launch and have progressive IT investments aligned with their growth. But for bigger installed companies having legacy systems, not investing more in IT for their digital transformation may put them at risk in front of new comers taking the best of new IT innovations without having a legacy to manage.

Nguyen Trieu Khang's insight:

In the USA, it is widely accepted that companies may fund schools and universities. With this huge amount spent on public schools, Microsoft contributes to this tradition of private sector helping the community and at the same time, ensures that kids get to know its products as future consumers.

 

With such giants backing up the public system, the USA have a chance to stay ahead in the digital race.

Le positionnement unique de l'application chinoise, à la convergence de la messagerie et de l'e-commerce, pourrait lui permettre d'envahir les Etats-Unis et l'Europe.
Nguyen Trieu Khang's insight:

1 monétisation par utilisateur 7 fois plus forte que WhatsApp. 1 positionnement m-commerce quasi natif dans l'application WeChat qui risque de bousculer beaucoup d'acteurs du e-commerce européens et américains si elle se diffuse sur ces marchés en inversant la logique entre commerce et réseau social.

Are Mercedes and Audi underestimating the threat that Tesla can represent?  Beware of rising competitors powered by strong technologies, little legacy and hence strong agility... Established brand and reputation are not enough.

​Low code development is coming: Welcome to the future | ZDNet

​Low code development is coming: Welcome to the future | ZDNet | Digital Tech & Innovation | Scoop.it
Cloud components. Software as infrastructure. Silicon Valley's enterprise software companies are changing the way we think about and build applications.
Nguyen Trieu Khang's insight:
Very interesting article that underlines one of the reason why we see this digital acceleration everywhere: "low code development" is not used as a way to look down on the skills ro develop applications, but rather a new approach to build applications: make the most of all existing APIs services (maps, storage, mail service, etc...) avalaible on the clouds to avoid re-developing these services for your customers, and focus on your core business and user experience. In a much shorter time than before, startups can deliver this way very comprehensive products.

According to the article, there's no real bubble as fintech newcomers are profitable, so this may not be just a hype. And that's why traditional banks may really be concerned about these competitors.

Nguyen Trieu Khang's insight:
100% digital banks such as INGdirect achieved to grow at a fast rate but still haven't outpaced brick and mortars banks which have gone also online since then. Physical presence may be an important factor, however the lack (or feeling of lack) of simplicity for a customer to change bank is still the primary reason why customer base in banking is so stable.
