Indonesia Tencent Cloud, a division of global technology Tencent, announced a partnership with TribunNews, an Indonesian news outlet, in association with multi-cloud specialist Hi Cloud. Through this partnership, TribunX Super App users will be able to enjoy a new and improved news experience.

With the help of Tencent Cloud’s cloud technology, the TribunX Super App aims to become the go-to place for digital news consumption. The TribunX Super App offers a seamless and comprehensive experience to its users. This is accomplished by combining the renowned news reporting of TribunNews with the cooperative efforts of Tribun Network’s other partners, namely Tribun Jual Beli, an e-commerce platform that specialises in second-hand goods, and Tribun Video, its video news platform. 

The extensive platform combines a variety of services with the most recent news updates. These services include live video reporting, video-on-demand (VOD), ticket purchasing options, and TribunMe, a social networking feature. Real-time worldwide news is also provided. This feature enables users to interact and establish connections with figures in Indonesia. 

The TribunX Super App has joined the growing trend of super applications, which are becoming more and more popular in Asia. Similar to a brick-built house, a super app consists of one large program made up of smaller applications known as mini-apps. It is up to the users to install and remove these components based on their needs. 

Once used to describe Tencent’s WeChat app, a mega app serves as a one-stop shop for all everyday needs. It offers a wide range of services on a single platform, including food and grocery delivery, e-commerce, ride-hailing, digital payments, social media interaction, financial services, and more. 

TribunX offers a user-friendly experience by leveraging Tencent Cloud’s cloud video processing technologies. By utilising technologies like Live Transcoding, Adaptive Bitrate, and Real-Time Messaging Protocol (RTMP), people may experience high-quality audio-visual content regardless of their device or network conditions. 

Moreover, the integration of Digital Rights Management (DRM) offers an extra security measure, enhancing the super app’s standing as a secure platform. The Global Content Delivery Network (CDN) of Tencent Cloud further enhances the super app’s user experience by ensuring access to TribunX’s content across multiple countries. 

TribunX has implemented a mobile-first approach, giving migration, administration, stability, security, and affordability first priority, with the support of Tencent Cloud. Tencent Cloud solutions, such as the Tencent Online Video Platform (TOVP), Tencent Cloud Object Storage (COS), and Tencent Cloud Database (DB), allow users to access and enjoy a content library on Tribun, along with additional features like multi-screen support, live streaming, video-on-demand (VOD), and interactive video functionalities. 

Speaking about the partnership, Jimmy Chen, vice president of Tencent Cloud International and managing director of Southeast Asia, expressed, “We are thrilled to be collaborating with Tribun on this transformative project that consolidates the news experience all over Indonesia. Our cloud computing solutions, coupled with Tribun’s commitment to hyperlocal news and user-centric services, have resulted in an innovative super app that sets new standards in the news media industry. We look forward to the results and benefits of this groundbreaking project that keeps Indonesians up-to-date in news consumption in the digital era.” 

Meanwhile, Dahlan Dahi, CEO of Tribun Network, said, “The partnership between Tribun and Tencent Cloud signifies a new era in news delivery, as we go full throttle in our digital transformation journey. By leveraging Tencent Cloud’s expertise in cloud computing and its cutting-edge media solutions, we have created a super app that not only addresses the needs of our users but also provides a seamless and personalised news and media experience for a variety of other services.”
