[Shanghai, China, October 10, 2018] During HUAWEICONNECT 2018, Xu Guoyu, general manager of Industry Enablement Platform, Huawei Enterprise BG, detailed Huawei’s experience in urban digital transformation.
Urban digital transformation aims at building comprehensive smart cities, which is a long-term and constantly evolving process. Current digital city construction, driven by technology, makes it hard to promote the comprehensive and sustainable development of cities. This is due to difficulties in data sharing, little interconnection between systems, and the lack of innovative applications, all of which have greatly hindered the digital transformation of cities.
