As Enterprise Digital Transformation Accelerates, Fortune Global 500 Companies Become the Trendsetters

According to Diana Yuan, President of Marketing and Solution Sales Department of Huawei’s Enterprise business group, Fortune Global 500 companies become the trendsetters.

Why are Fortune Global 500 companies choosing Huawei to help complete their digital transformation and how they are undergoing the transition?

There are 4 ways Huawei has been able to differentiate from other ICT vendors.

  • SAP: Huawei and SAP have formed a long-term global technology partnership to improve the SAP HANA platform for enterprise customers. The platform is currently in use by thousands of customers worldwide.
  • Honeywell: Huawei worked with Honeywell to build a smart building — Australia’s Brisbane Skytower . The Skytower is also a model of smart buildings created through the cooperation between Huawei and Honeywell. Huawei and Honeywell worked together to create this smart building solution. It is based on Huawei’s edge computing IoT platform and combines Honeywell’s smart building management system, fully integrating ICT platform capabilities with industry experience. This allows for the complex and diverse devices in a building to connect and work among themselves. Using 10 million-level IoT terminal cloud management reduces operations and management costs by 60% and power consumption by 50%.
  • China Everbright Bank (CEB): China Everbright Bank chose Huawei FusionCube to Build a Converged Architecture Resource Pool. This solution allows CEB to greatly reduce the scale of branch IT infrastructures, comprehensively improve resource delivery efficiency, and build standard procedures for resource delivery.
  • Thailand’s Provincial Electric Power Company: Huawei’s Unified Transmission Solution assists PEA’s services to evolve towards IP.
  • Dubai International Airport: Huawei partners with Dubai Airports to build a prefabricated modular data center with Tier III certificates from the Uptime Institute for both design and construction. The data center can ensure an availability of 99.98% and an annual downtime within 1.6 hours. The data center provides a stable cornerstone of a Smart Airport.
  • DHL: DHL Supply Chain and Huawei are developing a range of supply chain solutions for customers using industrial-grade Internet of Things (IoT) hardware and infrastructure. They collaborate on innovation projects focusing on cellular-based Internet of Things technology, which can connect large volumes of devices across long distances with minimal power consumption. The greater connectivity will deliver a more integrated logistics value chain by providing critical data and visibility into warehousing operations, freight transportation, and last-mile delivery.
  • Schindler: Huawei helps Schindler ahead in the software-defined elevator. Based on Huawei’s IoT and edge computing, it enables remote monitoring, real-time analysis, and predictive maintenance for elevators, which reduces downtime and ensures a superior passenger experience.
  • Dongfeng Motor: Huawei customizes the Desktop Cloud Solution for Dongfeng Communication, improving its incident response speed, trouble-shooting efficiency, and customer satisfaction.
  • France TF1: Huawei’s media cloud enables TF1 to provide HD video streams for clients. The whole process requires no advanced client devices or powerful, HPN-based back-office support abilities.
  • OFO: Based on NB-IoT technology, ofo developed an IoT smart lock that lowers power consumption, enables wide coverage and heavy connections, and slashes system resource delays at low cost.
Huawei Enterprise Business Group’s capabilities are steadily growing and helping customers gain a competitive advantage and achieve business success through digital transformation.
Let’s take a closer look at each of these components and technologies in Huawei’s full-stack ICT infrastructure. This infrastructure features Cloud-Pipe-Device collaboration. By utilizing these new ICT technologies, vertical solution partners can easy build and innovate their solutions in this open platform. It transforms public safety, electric power, the finance industry and more.

What’s Next?

Last year, I wrote about the 3 Phases of ICT Transformation. We are currently in the third phase, which is all about vertical industries. Within the next decade, traditional industries will enter a critical point of digital transformation.
