Huawei Enterprise’s Digital Platform Builds the Foundation of the Digital World
Digital transformation is a phenomena that started long ago, and still has a long way to go. During their transformation journeys, enterprises hope to systematically improve service and operational efficiency in changing times; fundamentally overcome the challenges of how to integrate data to achieving business synergy and agile innovation; and realize new business models and value propositions.
Yan Lida, President of Huawei Enterprise Business Group, said: “In this era, the digital transformation of enterprises, the economy, and the whole society has brought enormous opportunities and challenges to various industries. Huawei deems that digitalization can be achieved only when the digital world and the physical world are fully integrated. Based on this understanding and our more than ten years of digital transformation experience, we are launching Huawei Digital Platform for the enterprise market in response to customer needs. It is the only platform that can horizontally integrate new ICT including cloud, AI, IoT, Big Data, converged communication, video and GIS, as well as vertically connect devices, edge, network and cloud. It is integrated, intelligent and inheritable. From enterprises, to SMEs, to start-ups, Huawei Digital Platform can enable companies to become more powerful and reach new heights, as well as take advantage of agile innovation.
