Huawei accelerates ME migration to the cloud
Introduces of several channel services policies and programs at GITEX 2017
Huawei is transforming its enterprise services strategy with the introduction of several channel services policies and programs at GITEX 2017.
First, Huawei will be transforming its cloud-based services to provide its Middle East customers with a comprehensive, one-stop experience with ROADS (Real-time, On-demand, All-online, DIY, Social). This new service helps customers during the entire process of their operations, from initial assessment to planning and design, migration, disaster recovery, security and optimization. The new service has been developed based on Huawei's experience building over 400 cloud data centres and over 100 cloud migration projects.
In support of this global digital service platform, Huawei is making significant investments to construct a cloud-based tools platform to deliver remote automated services. This offering of services and solutions is being developed by utilising Huawei's partner network, including relationships with regional companies such as the UAE's Enterprise Systems, Saudi Arabia's Gulf Applications, and the pan-GCC Redington Gulf.
Huawei boasts a broad services network, with more than 2,400 Certified Service Partners (CSPs) worldwide and more than 60 CSPs in Middle East. This GITEX, Huawei has introduced the service channel policies and present its successful cooperation with main CSPs in the region.
Huawei is also building labs where deployment methodologies can be verified and improved together with both customers and partners. Every industry scenario has its own unique characteristics, which is why Huawei is developing services that are tailored for specific vertical sectors. Through the utilisation of Huawei's new Smart Network Operation Service, customers will be enabled to build their intelligent O&M capabilities.
Lastly, Huawei is launching a cloud certification programme at GITEX 2017 in order to develop the cloud ecosystem's talent pool in the Middle East. This includes training and certifications that meet the needs of specific industries, with unique, tailored programs for each sector.
"Huawei is offering a cloud transformation service that helps our customers in the Middle East throughout the entire process, from initial assessment to planning and design, migration, disaster recovery, security and optimisation," said Alaa ElShimy, vice president and managing director, Huawei Enterprise Middle East. "This will ensure a smooth and seamless cloud transition, optimising time, efficiency, productivity and profitability in unimaginable ways."
