Alibaba’s cloud computing service unit, Aliyun, has teamed up with SAP and Accenture to provide services to the Enterprise market, the Shanghai Daily reports.

It has also built industry solutions in some sectors, including Internet of Things and online video streaming.

If I read the story correctly, the alliance is primarily aimed at the Chinese domestic market.

"It aims to can help both domestic companies to expand their overseas presence as well as establish local teams to boost revenues from foreign firms," according to the article.

Although its starting in China, Aliyun claims global presence, and its always possible the geographic scope of the partnership could expand.

Alibaba has been making huge investments in building a smarter cloud, with the aim of ultimately competing against Amazon Web Services.

Update: More info on partnership from Alibaba-owned South China Morning Post . Not clear what the specifics are behind the alliance agreement.
