Huawei sees 85% of enterprise apps becoming cloud-based

Ken Hu unveils Huawei’s Cloud strategy at Huawei Connect 2016 event

HUAWEI PREDICTS that by 2025 all enterprise IT solutions will be “cloudified”, and more than 85 per cent of enterprise applications will be cloud-based.

Every company will integrate its core business with the cloud, and will be on the look-out for cloud solutions that best suit them, Ken Hu, Huawei’s rotating chief executive officer, said during the “Huawei Connect 2016” event in Shanghai last week. “Cloud is changing everything,” he said. “We view change as a process of rebirth. For any business in the Cloud 2.0 era, change brings hope. And through action, we can create the future.”

Enterprises that were born in the cloud led the development of the first cloud era, disrupting industries around the world, he said, adding that he believed the next 10 years would be the era of Cloud 2.0, marking the rise of countless industry clouds.

China’s largest telecommunications company held “Huawei Connect 2016” from August 31 to September 2 under the theme of “Shape the Cloud”, with the aim of exploring cloud-era trends and how different industries can achieve digital transformation by developing cloud technology and contributing to the cloud ecosystem.

This forms part of Huawei’s plan to jump into the information and communications technology industry, apart from the telecoms industry.
