Huawei and its partners will exhibit innovative ICT products and solutions at CeBIT 2017 in Germany, March 20 to 24, 2017. Products and solutions will include Cloud Computing, Big Data, the Internet of Things, and Software-Defined Networking (SDN). Huawei also will share best practices for smart cities, finance, smart grids, transportation, and manufacturing. And we look forward to discussing the digital transformation of your company and exploring the advantages of a healthy ICT ecosystem.
Huawei believes that enterprisesʼ ICT systems should shift from a siloed architecture to one that features cloud-pipe-device synergy. Huawei is committed to building cloud-pipe-device systems on a platform with enhanced resiliency, flexibility, and security. Such a platform will enable all of us to create a sustainable ecosystem.
Four methods of ecosystem construction
Huawei, a leading global ICT solutions provider, stands ready to collaborate with developers and partners of different industries. We want to share our ICT capabilities, explore innovation in various sectors, and build more diversified, open digital ecosystems with infinite opportunities.
There are four ways to build open ecosystems:
1. Build industry alliances to guide industry direction and grow the industry together.
2. Build business alliances to contribute to customersʼ business success. For example, we have formed strategic alliances with SAP and other partners to deliver more competitive solutions.
3. Build developer platforms to attract more players who can invigorate the industry through innovation. Huawei provides Open Labs and RemoteLab worldwide that enable developers to connect to real devices for remote commissioning.
4. Build open-source communities to drive wider collaboration.
Developer Enablement Plan
To help grow the value of its Developer Ecosystem, in 2015 Huawei invested USD $300 million for a Developer Enablement Plan. The goal was to build open enablement and global marketing platforms for developer partners with investments of USD $200 million for the enablement platform, and USD $100 million for the marketing platform. Huawei aims to enlist 1 million developers by 2020.
Huawei will invest USD $1 billion for this plan over the next several years. The plan will include an Innovation Fund, Development Support, Expert Training, a Marketing Fund, and Huawei Certification.
The open enablement platform, called HUAWEI DEVELOPER ZONE, works with a concept we call LEADS: L = Lab-as-a-Service, E = End-to-End support, A = Agile Development tools, D = Dedicated service, and S = Social platform for communication.
With the enablement platform, partners can easily invoke Huawei open APIs and develop industrial solutions and applications with higher efficiency and lower costs.
By the end of 2016, the Huawei Developer Zone had opened up the capabilities of 14 product fields, and attracted more than 30,000 registered developers.
Partners’ success stories
In the many solutions developed based on Huawei ICT capabilities, the following partners achieved innovative breakthroughs and successes.
Yusys: The Chinese Fintech company Yusys Technologies works with financial services enterprises to help banks build agile, innovative, financial clouds. Yusys uses the heat component of its financial cloud to orchestrate 30 interfaces, such as OpenStack VM management and alarm monitoring, into application deployment, resource auto-scaling, and resource management. As a result, users can deploy bank IT applications with just one click of a computer mouse.
Traditional banks were faced with problems such as a long development times to introduce a new services, plus complex lifecycle management. In addition, auto-scaling was not supported. However, the Yusys financial cloud has solved these problems, ensuring quick response and better customer experience.
GE: Security accidents in elevators not only draw the close attention of government regulators, but also frighten users. GE and Huawei have worked together to develop an elevator predictability maintenance solution, which has been applied by the worldʼs top elevator manufacturers. This benefits the operators and users of millions of elevators.
The GE Predix Machine, an operating system for the Industrial Internet, runs on Huaweiʼs IoT gateway open platform. It invokes the northbound APIs of Huaweiʼs Agile Controller to obtain all the parameters from elevator sensors, performs real-time surveillance, then transmits elevator information to the Predix cloud platform for predictable maintenance. People can detect potential elevator risks proactively, shortening the length of service interruptions by 90 percent.
Infosys: Traditional Wi-Fi services cannot meet an audienceʼs demand for an ultimate match-watching and consumer experience. Nor can they meet the stadium operatorsʼ needs for digital operations. A stadium requires a fully-connected Wi-Fi network with innovative services that can connect mobile terminals, Apps, stadium stores, games, and cameras.
Infosys, however, constructs a location-based entertainment experience platform by invoking Huaweiʼs Wi-Fi location capabilities, including Wi-Fi App certification, precise marketing, ticket booking, seat selection, and in-stadium navigation. After matches, Huawei/Infosys Wi-Fi makes possible video playback and social sharing. The innovative and customized services enhance fansʼ experience and can help the stadium operator increase revenue by over 10 times. This solution is currently being used in United States university venues and other locations.
At CeBIT 2017, Huawei will focus on three themes: Business, technology, and ecosystems, and will share its digital transformation experience in government and finance and in industries such as transportation, smart grids, and manufacturing. In addition, we will discuss innovations in Cloud Computing, Big Data, the Internet of Things, and SDN. We will also introduce Huawei Developer Zone, our ecosystem concepts, and the open enablement platform.
Come visit us at CeBIT, where we can discuss your new, sustainable ecosystem.
