​Huawei hones in on agile Kiwi businesses

Huawei firmly establishes its presence in the New Zealand market.

Huawei has firmly established its presence in the New Zealand market, with the tech giant holding its first Cloud Conference in Auckland, sharing the vendor’s vision for the future of the Cloud.

During the inaugural Kiwi event, Huawei urged local businesses to become “dynamic and adaptable”, with the evolution of Cloud services set to be “swift”.

“The industry is now in the world of ‘Cloud 2.0’ which had seen the shift from simple virtualisation to software-defined solutions and increased automation,” says Ronald Raffensperger, CTO of IT Product Line, Huawei.

“But the next stage of evolution would be to ‘Cloud 3.0’ which would herald “Cloud Native” applications, and another significant change in how we are able to do business.”

Raffensperger says Huawei is working to build the future of Cloud services by fostering an “open ecosystem” which would enable rapid development, expand the potential talent pool, and increase industry scalability.

Huawei Cloud Conference has become a major annual event for the IT industry in China, but this was the first opportunity for New Zealand IT industry figures to attend in Auckland, with the benefit of local industry insights.

For many attendees the event also served as an introduction to Huawei’s IT business, which has launched in New Zealand following the success of the Carrier Network, Enterprise, and Consumer business groups.

Huawei South Pacific Director for Data Centre Solutions Leo Li says the technology world is entering an era of convergence, with Huawei’s mission statement simple - “Make IT Simple, Make Business Agile”.

“Today, Huawei has a team of over 10,000 technical experts in specialised IT R&D facilities around the world,” Li says.

“Huawei continues to openly invest in and work with partners to provide innovative, differentiated, and leading IT solutions for customers worldwide.

“The products and solutions we showcase today are all based on our commitment to simplify traditional IT infrastructure, improve business agility, and create value for businesses.”

Speakers included a range of Huawei experts from China and the Asia Pacific region, and from industry partners IDC, CommVault, and 2degrees.
