Platform and Ecosystem, Two Driving Forces on the Road to Digital Transformation
Huawei’s enterprise business is based on a deep understanding of industry digital transformation, and the company unveiled its “Platform + Ecosystem” strategy at the tradeshow.
Yan Lida, President of Huawei Enterprise Business Group, said: “Huawei’s business positioning is focused on being the best partner to enable a digital society, intelligent social development, and industry digital transformation. We propose a ‘platform + ecosystem’ strategy which is based on large investments in new technologies, such as cloud computing, Internet of Things (IoT), Big Data, mobile broadband and SDN, to create an open, flexible, secure and agile ICT infrastructure platform. By building a win-win ecosystem and collaborating extensively with partners we are helping customers achieve success in digital transformation.”
At the CeBIT Global Conferences CEO Keynote, Diana Yuan, President of Marketing and Solutions Sales Department, Huawei Enterprise Business Group, said: “Our ‘Platform’ emphasizes cloud-pipe-device synergy, while our ‘Ecosystem’ is customer-centric and focuses on creating a mutually beneficial environment for sustainable development. Huawei implements the ‘Platform + Ecosystem’ strategy and works closely with customers and partners to help them embrace the digital era by leveraging the solid and rich experiences and capabilities gained from our own digital transformation.”
At CeBIT 2017, Huawei is launching the Global OpenLab Program to promote implementation of the “Platform + Ecosystem” strategy. This Program will bring together leading business partners to build capabilities to innovate industry-specific solutions, providing the building blocks of an ICT ecosystem that powers the future smart society. Huawei plans to set up a further 15 OpenLabs in the following three years, with a total investment of USD 200 million. By the end of 2019, there will be a total of 20 OpenLabs worldwide.
