Huawei has attended the CEBIT Preview 2018 in Hannover, Germany. With a new format, CEBIT 2018 will deliver an international business festival for innovation and digitization featuring new themes, new activities, and a new look and feel.
Visitors will experience multiple digital technologies including AI, IoT, humanoid robots, service robots, autonomous systems, Big Data analytics, cloud, security, and VR. During the event, Huawei will share how it is working with global partners and customers to enable the “symphony of digital transformation”, where all digital technologies work in harmony to drive business success. Huawei plans to reveal innovative ICT solutions based on cloud, AI, Big Data, IoT, and SDN designed to advance businesses, technologies, and ecosystems.
In the future, all businesses will be digital enterprises. Faced with increasing digital disruption and rising customer expectations, traditional enterprises and economies are now the driving force behind digital transformation. In this era, enterprises cannot rely on one technology, instead they need to converge innovative technologies (such as IoT, cloud computing, Big Data, and AI) and traditional industry knowledge and skills to achieve their business goals. This requires a digital platform to drive efficient digital transformation and achieve convergent and integrated innovation.
At CEBIT 2018, Huawei Enterprise Business Group will demonstrate cloud-pipe-device technologies and product innovations, as well as digital platforms and a new ecosystem that powers these technologies and innovations. Huawei will reveal its plans to partner with enterprises and enable them to achieve digital transformation, bringing digital to every organization for a fully connected, intelligent world.
Pablo Cui, Managing Director of Huawei Germany Enterprise Business, said that future competition will not be limited to companies. “Only those who can provide customers with a more powerful and complete ecosystem will succeed in the future. Huawei cooperates with ecosystem partners to drive win-win strategies, create an open, digital platform that powers digital transformation, and innovate with customers and partners through local OpenLabs in Munich and Paris. In 2017, Huawei served more leading customers in the global industry than ever before, promoted the growth of ICT in Europe, and helped European customers achieve greater business success. This year, Huawei will work with global partners such as SAP, Honeywell, Accenture, Hexagon, Arrow Electronics, ABB, and ICBC to release and demonstrate the latest solutions.”
