Huawei Accelerates Cloud Transformation to Digitize Industry

By Ken Briodagh September 02, 2016

Huawei at a recent event outlined its success with digital transformation and discussed the theme of Accelerating carriers’ cloud transformation and enabling the digitization of vertical industries.

Zou Zhilei, President of Huawei's Carrier Business, said that the IT industry has gone through a wave of network-centered transformation, another one of horizontal application-centered transformation, and now a third wave is beginning centered on vertical industry ecosystems: The Internet and cloud computing particularly. This wave, he said, will last for the next two to three decades.

In this third transformation, telecom carriers will act as the agents of change by using their strengths to help customers integrate fragmented networks and processes. By restructuring their business processes and network operations, he advised, carriers will enable digital transformation of industries, and earn spillover benefits from increased productivity.

The opportunities for success are particularly clear in the areas of cloud services, Internet of Things, and video.

“Cloud is the driver and the transformer for whole industries,” said Thomas Aschenbrenner, director, cloud sales & marketing, Deutsche Telekom. “Deutsche Telekom and Huawei continue to innovate together, to deliver high quality cloud services to enterprises through our Open Telekom Cloud.”

Wang Jingzhong, CEO of China Mobile Anyang, said that China Mobile and Huawei have delivered government cloud, enterprise cloud, public service cloud, and IoT cloud, and as a result have created a smart, connected city with streamlined governance, excellent resident services, and a buoyant business environment.

Huawei is following the strategic principle of “Make It Possible” so it is aiming to take the lead in developing a solution cloud, experience cloud, and knowledge cloud for carriers.

“China Telecom and Huawei have jointly developed the brand-new eCloud 3.0, which integrates cloud and network, and offers secure, customized cloud services,” said Wu Xiangdong, President, China Telecom Cloud Computing. “It can support the development of the industrial Internet, and drive industry informatization.”
