Huawei, as part of its enterprise service strategy, will invest $500 million in the next five years for the development of cloud-based professional services, a cloud platform and cloud ecosystem.
This will provide customers with end-to-end cloud transformation service solutions enabling them to build, use, and manage their cloud platforms effectively.
Huawei’s cloud services have already served over 18,000 customers in the past year. To date, 197 of the Fortune Global 500 companies and 45 of the top 100 enterprises have selected Huawei as their technology partner for digital transformation.
“Huawei is adopting a long term cloud transformation service strategy to support our enterprise customers in their journey to the cloud. Our services strategy centers on the concept of ‘Grow with the Cloud’ and becoming an industry cloud enabler,” said Sun Maolu, president of Technical Service Department for Huawei Enterprise Business Group.
Huawei’s enterprise services will focus on four key areas including cloud innovation, creating a digital platform, supporting smart operations and enabling businesses.
Huawei will increase its investment in the development of service solutions and Global Service Centers (GSC), as well as tools, platforms and verification labs for professional services. In the next five years, we will also focus on research and development of industry clouds, increasing its annual investment by more than 50 percent.
Huawei will provide a new certification scheme to train ICT architects, ICT developers and industry-specific ICT experts. By 2021, it is estimated that more than 150,000 cloud and industry-specific ICT professionals will have been certified by Huawei.
“As business continuity is critical during complex cloud migration, Huawei provides a sophisticated migration process with 4 stages and 17 steps, and professional migration tools developed in-house, which have helped more than 1,000 customers migrate their businesses to the cloud,” said Xu Jingbin, director of IT Technical Service Department for Huawei Enterprise Business Group.
Huawei has established an industry planning and design verification lab, a disaster recovery and migration lab, a safe city verification center, and a financial services verification center in Beijing, Shenzhen and Chengdu.
“Huawei invests heavily in the development of Intellectual Property through the establishment of R+D centers to accelerate innovation, differentiation and delivery of its services,” Leslie Rosenberg, IDC Research Director said.
