IVE (Lee Wai Lee)
Cloud Innovation Centre

The Centre is established in IVE (Lee Wai Lee) which is located at Tseung Kwan O to promote innovative cloud computing and big data applications for various industries. The Centre is serving a platform for students to practice different aspects of cloud computing, via the infusion of cloud computing technology. These include Software-as-a-Service (SaaS), Platform-as-a-Service (PaaS) and Infrastructure-as-a-Service (IaaS) cloud computing paradigms across different domain i.e. Web and Apps. The Centre is mainly to support students who are studying HD in Cloud and Data Centre Administration in IVE (Lee Wai Lee) and it also conducts applied research in the areas of innovative cloud and big data applications.

About HD in Cloud and Data Centre Administraion

In the fourth coming years, the demands in cloud computing and data center specialists increase rapidly, because of the IT world is moving towards Cloud technology. In view of this, the Hong Kong Institute of Vocational Education (IVE) will offer a new Higher Diploma programme "Cloud and Data Centre Administration". The programme aims to provide cutting-edge training on Cloud and Data center technologies. IVE will works closely with the Industry to maintain high standard of relevant personnel requirements from Cloud Computing. The programme aims to equip students with the necessary practical knowledge and skills in cloud and data center administration, with emphasis on network design and implementation, cloud applications development, and virtualized systems and data centers administration. Cloud computing is a new trend of IT technology, and most large IT applications will be hosted in cloud systems. Graduates can apply their knowledge and skills in the administration of cloud and data centers, as well as in the support of various commercial cloud applications and cloud services.

Hong Kong IT Job Advertisement Data Mining Report (香港IT工招聘廣告數據挖掘報告)

This Project is conducted by Mr. Cyrus Wong, Data Scientist of Cloud Innovation Centre, IVE (Lee Wai Lee).

This report aims to help IT practitioners, students and teachers to understand the manpower need of IT industry in Hong Kong. Students always want to know the essential technical knowledge and skills in finding a job. e.g. PHP or ASP.NET? Android or iOS? The methodologies of Data Science have been adopted in this project to investigate the keywords and extract the hidden information from 192,000 IT job advertisements. The results of this project will help you make a better decision on your further study and career development.


Please use Google Chrome in Window or Safari in Mac (Enable WebGL) to read this report! And, you can learn how to read the result and get the explanation from Youtube Clip.

The Proof of concept for the Technologies Behind the Report:
Fast Automatic Distributed Parallel Order iPhone 5 - Cloudera Hadoop Cluster


  1. IT Job Skill Index (IT工作技能指數) - Grouped Version OR Full List Version

    Keyword Count summary and Simple correlation analysis with Higher Diploma. More Detailed Analysis for a Keyword:
    Trendency (趨勢分析) Prediction Tree (預測樹)
    Social Network Terms Analysis (社交網絡用語分析) Geochart (區域圖)
  2. Keyword Density Visualization (關鍵字密度視覺化)
  3. Interactive IT Term Matrix Social Network (互動IT關鍵字矩陣社交網絡圖)
    Analysis the keyword relations with Social Network Analysis Technique. Communities (Groups) are extracted.

    Analytic Analogy(分析技術類推) -
    1. Each keyword is a "person", which is represented by node, and node size reflects the occurrence frequency.
    2. Job Advertisement is an "event",
    3. "Keywords appear in a Job Advertisement" implies "People join a unique event".
    4. People always join event together, which implies they may be "friend" or have "relation", which is reflected by edge.
    Develop with Gephi, and add-on from Oxford Internet Institute - Sigmajs Exporter.
  4. Keyword Correlation Analysis (IT工作關鍵字相關性分析) (Big/WebGL) (Grouped Version)
    Relationship between each pair of Keyword, and interactive 3D Plot.
  5. IT Job Skill Cube (IT工作技術立方) - Principal Components Analysis (主成分分析) (Big/WebGL) (Grouped Version)
    Transform variable with principal components, and interactive 3D Plot to explore their relation.
  6. Job Advertisement Cluster Analysis (IT工作集群分析)
    Cluster Analysis over Keywords
  7. Codebook (關鍵字碼簿)
    It defines the group, keyword,and list of Synonym, which is related to IT industry.

    You can submit new keywords that you are interested in, and it will be included in the next report! Online form!.
