Alibaba (NYSE:BABA) usually attracts attention to its enormous e-commerce business, its financial business, or even its long-term bets like autonomous cars and ride-hailing industry investments. However, its very successful cloud business receives less attention than the other segments while it presents the most impressive YoY growth. As shown in the chart below, all of Alibaba's revenue streams are growing at phenomenal rates; however, when the core business, both in China and internationally, maintained a relatively steady double-digit YoY growth rate, the company's cloud business increased its growth rate and reached an amazing 175% in the last quarter.

CEO Perspective: Are You Ready for the Cloud

Article | March 31, 2020

It may be obvious, but I have to say the cloud -- particularly a cloud data analytics stack. It is the only way for companies to efficiently and effectively combine data from all the myriad sources and analyze it together. Cloud data warehouses (CDWs) are experiencing incredible traction, and I believe we will continue to see a sharp trajectory for them and the various technologies associated with them, from the pipeline funneling all the data into the CDW to the cloud analytics and business intelligence (BI) software that enables you to access and analyze the data in real-time (like Sigma, the company I lead).CDWs have taken off for a number of reasons: scalability, flexibility, lower costs, and connectivity, which are benefits presented by most cloud technologies. Furthermore, by storing all data in one place, organizations don't have to deal with the complexity of searching various discrete business systems and data stores to locate the relevant data.
