On May 27th, Craig Modesitt, CEO and founder of ENFOS, spoke at the 2018 Big Data Conference in Guiyang to address how the power of data analytics can vastly improve environmental liability management. Yan Chen, Mayor of Guiyang, personally invited Mr. Modesitt to speak with the purpose of educating Chinese officials, IT field elites and Guiyang citizens on the strategic management of their current environmental liability landscape. The ultimate goal is to fulfill the ‘Green Dream’ of Xi Jingping, the president of China, through practical collaboration and the sharing of knowledge.

During this trip, ENFOS was also invited by the district government to attend the Guiyang High Tech District Development Meeting’s private signing ceremony to sign the Strategic Collaboration Framework Contract to officially mark the beginning of the collaboration.
Following a previous meeting on March 23rd where Mayor Chen pledged to support the implementation of the ENFOS software solution, ENFOS partnered with Hunan Kylin, a Chinese company that is known for developing operating systems for Chinese military use. The two parties together proposed the Strategic Collaboration Framework Contract (SCFC) to the district governors.
The collaboration between Hunan Kylin and ENFOS is designed to build an integrated environmental big data management solution that truly fits the needs of the Chinese market. The SCFC was approved on the May 14th.

Mayor Chen said that he’d put his full support behind making ENFOS a flagship solution for Guiyang, solidifying the two parties as leaders of China’s eco-environmental risk and responsibility management solutions.
