Huawei in the pre-MWC conference, London, 2017 showed itself to be visionary in its thinking and planning. With the evolution of the ICT space and the increased uptake of technologies such as the cloud, analytics, mobility and automation – Huawei has captured the linkage across these areas and planned for it with the launch of its cloud suite as the lynchpin to enable digital transformation.

 Reshaping B2B through Cloud, to support telco’s ride the new wave of growth was one of the key themes discussed by Mr. Wang, Global Marketing and Solution Sales President at Huawei. This theme was well articulated through the cloud presentation that broke down the Huawei all cloud offering across its three pillars viz. technology abstraction, automation and distributed architecture by Mr. Libin Dai, Solution Marketing Department Director, Carrier Network Business Group. The key zone of opportunity across the 7 cloud products from a telco standpoint was bolstered by the 50 percent potential cost saving and 30 percent revenue increase that telco’s could garner through value added services.

Huawei in the summit - from a cloud, video and IOT standpoint has highlighted the importance of the cloud in its strategy. Be it a smart home, increased video uptake or connected cars the cloud stack will form the base. What makes this stack more exciting is the level of collaboration and community that Huawei has strived to build in so that they are solutioning, transforming and cloudifying with the changing needs of the populace.

To highlight this, in the context of the MENA – the cloud suite has been launched at the right time. With more than 50 percent of enterprises, mired by legacy systems or looking to reduce their CAPEX and OPEX with the thrust for digital transformation the potential is massive. Saudi Arabia with the launch of the cloud and the renewed focus on telco’s to support the proliferation of its uptake both at the enterprise and SME level will be the largest opportunity. This also speaks to the National transformation plan and the KSA Vision 2030 where the country looks to move to a new era of digital transformation.
