ASPIRATION

Innovate digital products & services to improve the quality of lives and promote businesses in Thailand

Digital technologies are emerging at a rapid pace and have changed the way the world works. Global telecom operators are faced with ongoing market disruption and structural change, threatening their revenue streams from traditional services. On the flip side, it is a compelling opportunity for AIS to leverage digital innovations as a growth engine to enhance our competitive edge and create value for our customers and society at large. AIS commits to deliver innovated products and services to serve new waves of customer demands, such as in relation to the smart city, smart logistics, and healthcare, to improve the quality of Thai lives and create added value for the economy and society with a smaller environmental footprint.

HOW WE ADDRESS THE ISSUE

We set to become a sustainable innovation leader by building an Innovation System that can enhance the adaptability of AIS. We target to have more than 1,000 active partners, with a product and/or service launched in the market on AIS Partner Platform by 2021 that will benefit for both consumers and business in Thailand.

To do so, AIS has set a strategy to manage innovation efficiently among internal and external parties, AIS Open Innovation Framework, which covers four key areas as follows:
