  • Development of the Global Vocational Education and Training Industry in 2022

    From the macro perspective, the development of the vocational education and training market is closely related to the local economic structure and development level. The change of the global economic structure and the adjustment of the industrial structure constitute the underlying logic of the development of vocational education and education. Support and investment from governments and institutions and the empowerment by information technology continuously promote industry development.

    As the fact that vocational education and general education are equally important is widely recognized, vocational education and training will shoulder the heavy responsibility of talent supply that meet the needs of China's economic structural transformation, and will play an important role in social services such as housekeeping, healthcare, transportation, emergency response, and strategic emerging industries such as energy and environmental protection, aerospace and AI.

    Vocational education training enterprises play a critical role in the industrial ecology, and a linking role in industrial standardization. They are responsible for practical cooperation in the integration of industry and education and the cooperation between schools and enterprises. They are pioneers in the development and exploration of advanced education models and resources.

    Value Chain of the Vocational Education and Training Market

    The value chain of the vocational education and training market is a complex ecology composed of multiple participants. In this system, a closed loop of vocational education recruitment or training might be done by the combination and collaboration of multiple entities, which means the information transmission paths in the ecology are diversified. However, rich transmission paths might lead to potential risks such as information distortion. With the constant development of the market and the accumulation of information, the importance of digital platforms for vocational education and training becomes increasingly prominent. Only by connecting all the main bodies in the ecology and integrating all ecological information through digital platforms can the whole ecology coexist harmoniously and operate smoothly.

    Ecology of the Global Vocational Education and Training Industry

    Size of the Global Vocational Education and Training Market

    The size of vocational education and training has been rising globally. However, the size and growth momentum of different countries and regions vary according to macro policies, economic development levels, changes in labor supply and demand, and informatization degree. Although the Covid-19 pandemic, political turmoil in many countries, and extreme natural disasters have negative impacts on the global economy, the market size is expected to exceed 800 billion yuan by 2026, thanks to the positive macro background of global vocational education development.

    Overview of Vocational Education in Different Regions 

    Vocational education involves all walks of life. Its development degree is closely related to a country's population structure, economic structure and industry development. The development of vocational education in Europe and the United States is relatively mature. Thanks to years of development and iterative evolution, There are relatively complete vocational education systems and education models. However, in Asia, Africa and Latin America, vocational education is still in its infancy. These regions are actively exploring vocational education systems that meet their own talent development needs.

    Trends and Outlook of the Vocational Education and Training Industry in China 

    China has 200 million skilled workers, among whom 50 million are highly skilled talents. The jobs/applications ratio of skilled talents has been over 1.5 for a long time. According to National Development and Reform Commission, the proportion of skilled talents in China has been growing and is now nearly 30%. However, it is low considering the huge workforce, and it is much lower than that in manufacturing powerhouses such as Germany and Japan. The shortage of high-quality labor might become more severe in the future. On the other hand, the imbalance of vocational and general education in China's higher education system results in a falling employment rate of undergraduates. Chinese families will still prefer academic general education in the near future. However, in the long run, driven by the supply and demand of the job market, vocational education that emphasizes professional skills will attract more and more attention. The problem of imbalance between talent supply and demand can only be solved by healthy diversion of vocational education and general education.

    Trends and Outlook of the Vocational Education Industry in China 

    The ecology of vocational education includes diverse subjects and covers various industries and industry chains. In the traditional point-to-point industrial ecology, the efficiency of information transfer between the subjects is low, which is prone to disadvantages such as information asymmetry. With the improvement of the platform-based industrial ecology of vocational education, information barriers will be broken down, and fast exchange and circulation of information in the ecology will be realized, which will greatly improve the efficiency of information and resource allocation across the industry, and lay a solid foundation for the digital construction of talents. Such a huge and changing ecology need digital platforms to be stable, easy to use, highly compatible and have sustainable revenue. Therefore, the combination of industry training and employment service platforms based on SaaS will probably become the most promising business model for digital platforms.

  • 2022 Development of Data and AI Integration in China

    Traditional data warehouse and the separation of data lake and data warehouse make data and AI integration and enterprises’ agile decision-making difficult. Since data silos still exist, decision-making is not based on full data. The circulation of data results in high costs, long cycle and lack of timeliness. Based on separated storage, cache and computing, data lake, data warehouse and AI data unify metadata management, which can achieve the best result in data volume, cost, efficiency and agility。

    Open-source model contributes a lot to the ecology of data and AI. However, this doesn't mean all companies need to build their own data and intelligence platforms through open-source products. In fact, most companies focus on their core businesses and choose commercial data and intelligence platforms that have stable performance, data-intelligence integration, end-to-end automation and intelligence and do not need operation or maintenance. Enterprises that are more flexible and open have lower IT talent replenishment costs.

    Rising Data Volume andUnstructured Data Proportion 

    Global datavolume is surging at an annual growth rate of over 59%. 80% of the data areunstructured or semi-structured. The amount of data in China is rising at ahigher rate. Object storage-based data lakes are increasingly common thanks tothe rising data volume and proportion of non-structured data. Unifiedmanagement, query, and use of data are the new challenges.

    Development of AI Needs Large Amount of Accurate Data

    Whenenterprises deploy AI applications, the effect of AI applications dependslargely on the quality of data resources. To promote high-quality AIapplications, targeted data governance is the primary link. The traditionaldata governance systems built by the enterprises mostly focus on theoptimization of structured data governance. AI applications' high requirementsfor data can hardly be met in the dimensions of data quality, data fieldrichness, data distribution and real-time data. Enterprisesneed to carry out secondary data governance for artificial intelligenceapplications.

    Pain Point: Data Warehouse, Data Lake and AI Data Form New Data Silos

    Data analysis and AI analysis have developed for manyyears. There are many specialized data systems for different tasks. The datawarehouse systems process structured data, but the scale is small; Big datasystems handle massive amounts of data and unstructured data; AI systemsgenerally store data locally. These proprietary systems have shortcomings. Someof them form new data silos. Some need to migrate data to develop differentbusinesses, which consumes time, storage and network resources. What's worse,there is a risk of data inconsistencies. It is also It is relatively difficultto drill down and trace the data when abnormal data is found. They can hardlymeet the needs of agile data analysis in a rapidly changing market environment.

    Strategy 2: Unifymetadata to a central node

    Unify the data warehouse, data lake, AI datadirectory, data permission, transaction consistency, multi-version managementand other capabilities to a central node, and rely on this node to access data,therefore, data use wouldn't be constrained by isolated systems. Thisdistributed storage and unified management Master-Slave architecture aresimilar to Mapreduce in thecomputing field. This approach can break down data silos and allow the same setof data to be freely shared among multiple engines. Different users have thesame permissions and Consistent transaction control regardless of the tool theyuse to access data. It can also avoid the waste of resources caused by datamigration. Any link can see the full amount of data within its authority. Allmodels are based on a single source of truth ( raw data) to avoidinconsistencies in results caused by different teams' different data analysis.Once an anomaly is found, it can be easily drilled down and backtracked.

    Huawei Cloud DataArts+ModelArts

    Huawei Cloudcombines big data and AI through the integration of DataArts and ModelArts. It unifiesmetadata so that data can be used for multiple purposes, break down data silos,and avoid data migration. The separation of storage, cache and memory considersstorage, cost and computing performance. The combination of DataQps and MLOps different departments of the enterprise to use datain a way they prefer. Low code, no code and AI4Data make the whole processautomated and intelligent.

    HUAWEI Cloud DataArts+ModelArts

    Huawei Cloudhas advantages in software and hardware integration, industrial practiceexperience, and open source ecology. In the area of software and hardwareintegration, Huawei Cloud is good at the underlying technologies of computing,storage and network. For example, Huawei has an obvious advantage in the numberof patent applications for RDMA, one of the key technologies of memory pooling.In the aspect of industrial practice experience, Huawei Cloud has adhered tothe principle of everything as a service and has accumulated a lot of practicalexperience in the areas of the Internet and government and enterprises. It usesthe experience to improve its products. In terms of open-source ecology, HuaweiCloud contributes a lot to Hadoop and Spark communities. Thus, HUAWEI CLOUD hasa deeper understanding of security, stability, and other aspects of theseopen-source products. DataArts has bettercompatibility with the mainstream versions of these open source products.

    Industry Map

    Competitive Elements

    HR digitalservice providers need to improve their competitiveness in the increasinglyfierce market competition. Besides firm value judgment and insights intoindustries, a deep understanding of business, flexible products and services,and good user experience are also important. The key to success is using goodtools to provide the right customers with products and services that have widecoverage, good business fit and resiliency. With good products and services,service providers also need to attach a lot of importance to their marketingcapabilities.

    Development Pain Points

    The coredevelopment pain point of HR digital service providers is in the aspect ofindustrial logic, centering around digitalization understanding and cognition.In terms of the top-level design, Party A and Party B often have differentcognitions of business scenarios. Therefore, the products or services might notsuit the application scenarios. In terms of underlying cognition, digitalservice providers need to focus on improving products and services. Instead,many party B players focus on marketing and promotion and fall into ahomogeneous competition. For digital service providers, the premise of buildingproducts or services is improving business standardization. However, theoverall standardization level of the HR industry in China is low. To achievesound development, relevant companies need a top-down logical reshaping fromtop-level design to underlying cognition. They also need to work with multipleparties to build an industry standard system.

    Concept: Integration

    HR isincreasingly closer to businesses. The concepts that the job of HR should startfrom understanding business and business demand, and that HR management shouldalso involve the business department are more and more widely accepted byenterprises.
