On May 19, the Asia-Pacific Digital Innovation Congress 2022 opened in Singapore. Huawei, together with the ASEAN Foundation, worked with customers, experts, scholars, and analysts to discuss new scenarios and directions for digital economy and industry innovation. At the “cloud service” industry forum, Jacqueline Shi, President of Global Marketing and Sales Service of HUAWEI CLOUD, delivered a keynote speech.
In 2021, HUAWEI CLOUD released its latest strategy, “Dive into digital with Everything as a Service.” “Everything” includes Huawei’s vision and understanding of the industry. In the past, when we talked about cloud services, the most people know about IaaS, PaaS, and SaaS. Most of the time, they were presented from the perspective of a technology provider. Digital transformation in many industries, however, requires not only technologies and resources, but also experience, services, ideas, and everything that can be shared.
Over the past 30 years, Huawei has earned extensive trust from customers and partners in the carrier and enterprise markets by adhering to the principles of “good service, good quality, quick response to customer requirements, technological innovation to create customer value, and win-win cooperation with ecosystem partners.” Embedded with same values and business strategy, HUAWEI CLOUD continues to create trustworthy and innovative cloud services to realize our commitment of “in Asia-Pacific, for Asia-Pacific.”
In his speech, Zeng Xingyun, President of HUAWEI CLOUD Asia-Pacific, reviewed HUAWEI CLOUD’s rapid growth in 2021 and its advantages in localized services in the Asia-Pacific market.
Zeng pointed out that, “There are six strategies of Huawei CLOUD in Asia-Pacific. In terms of industry strategy, we focus on “Infrastructure as a Service, Technology as a Service, and win-win with ecosystem partners” to continuously improve the core competitiveness of Huawei Cloud. In terms of market strategy, we focus on ‘Dive into digital transformation, accelerate cloud native and business innovation, and build the best 2B services’ to continuously create value for customers.”
