Taiwan Province of China : ACER unveils cloud service centre

June 2, 2014

As the struggling Taiwanese computer maker looks to turn around its fortunes by moving away from the low-margin hardware business, Acer has announced its cloud service centre.

69-year-old Chairman and company founder, Stan Shih, disclosed additional details about its software service programme known as 'Build Your Own Cloud' (BYOC), which he launched late last year after returning to the top of the company to introduce a series of reforms.

He said : "I'm not saying we don't want hardware any more, it's still crucial, but in the future, Acer will set its sights on both hardware and software services."

He noted Acer's need to move away from the conventional business model with which it had once become the world's number two personal computer maker, as stiff rivalry from competitors like Apple in recent years had caused fortunes to slide.

He added : "We need a new mindset. Me-too is not my style."
