Taiwans Acer on Thursday unveiled its cloud service centre as the struggling computer maker seeks to revive its fortunes by diversifying away from the low-margin hardware business. Stan Shih, chairman and company founder, revealed further details about its software service programme called Build Your Own Cloud (BYOC), which he initiated late last year after returning to the helm of the company to launch a series of reforms. Im not saying we dont want hardware any more, its still crucial, but in the future, Acer will set its sights on both hardware and software services, the 69-year-old said at a press conference. He said Acer needed to get away from the traditional business model that had once made it the worlds number two personal computer maker, as stiff competition from rivals such as Apple in recent years had caused fortunes to slide.
