At the recently concluded APAC Partner Summit 2021 held virtually by Huawei Cloud, the Chinese cloud service provider decided to share the formula behind its global success with its key stakeholders and celebrating some of its most outstanding partners in digital transformation.
Speaking at the event, Zeng Xingyun, President of Huawei Cloud’s APAC Ecosystem, said that the company’s two-pronged technology and customer-focused strategy has placed the brand among the top five cloud Infrastructure-as-a-Service (IaaS) providers globally, and within the top four in Asia-Pacific’s emerging markets.
“We have invested more than RMB720 billion (US$113 billion) in infrastructure upgrading and R&D development over the past decade to provide the best services for our users,” Zeng said. “In Asia-Pacific, with our 20 representative offices and agencies, over 9,000 employees, 10,000 certified service engineers and experts ensure our customer’s success and ours as one of the leading cloud service providers globally.”
Huawei Cloud has been supporting industrial digital transformations with its platform and ecosystem, focusing on government institutions, financial services industry, logistics and energy, and even media organisations.
“We are using our technology to empower our partners and enable them to achieve more, digitally,” Nicole Lu, Vice-President of Huawei Cloud APAC Ecosystem, added. She cited examples such as its government institution partners have helped enact Covid-19 policies, smart city projects, and AI-assisted healthcare programmes.
In the logistics sector, Huawei Cloud’s partners have been utilising the company’s technology to automate warehouses and optimise transport and distribution operations.
At the summit, Huawei Cloud also announced the expansion of its partner network through several new collaborations, including one with Horangi, a Singapore-based Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) cybersecurity company. This partnership enables the delivery of turnkey cloud security solutions on Huawei Cloud powered by Warden, Horangi’s Cloud Security Posture Management application.
Warden’s infrastructure security rules, delivery of identity and access management best practices, and threat detection capabilities can improve the cyber-risk posture of organisations on Huawei Cloud.
Another partnership Huawei Cloud established was with Cloudwise, where the latter’s Digital Operational Central Platform is delivered in the SaaS model on Huawei Cloud. Under the partnership, both companies aim to drive and offer best practices leveraging big data, AI (artificial intelligence) and IoT (Internet of Things) technology, and provide multi-dimensional viewpoints for enterprises.
