At this summit, Huawei shared its digital transformation practices in energy, transportation, finance, education, and enterprise services, and further discussed how creating a digital ecosystem can continuously create value for customers and promote industry development and ecosystem construction to achieve a successful outcome for all.
In the energy sector, Robin Lu, Executive Vice President of Global Energy Business Unit, Huawei Enterprise BG, said that Energy transformation and digital transformation are clear trends and directions. The core purpose of digitalization is to unleash the power of data to boost productivity. In the future, the energy industry will achieve sustainable and high-quality development along the path of "one goal, two transformations, three facilitations, and four directions”. That is, with the goal of net zero carbon emissions, it will help global enterprises to realize energy transformation and digital transformation, promote the energy industry and enterprises of various countries to achieve the "net zero" goal through “two transformations”, build an ecological cooperation circle on a global scale, and promote cooperation, including green, low-carbon, technological innovation, efficiency and effectiveness, and international cooperation.
In the transportation sector, Andy Bien, Chief Digital Officer, Global Aviation, Global Transportation Business Unit, Huawei Enterprise BG, said that:”We have seen an accelerated interest in digital transformation in the aviation industry to cope with the devastating impact of the pandemic. Health and safety, financial and environmental sustainability, and heightened passenger expectations will drive this change. The use of wireless, cloud and machine intelligence, delivered via a secured and reliable digital infrastructure can address these new demands for sustainable aviation. An opportunity awaits as the industry readies for recovery in 2021.”
In the financial sector, Liu Yuanxin, Chief Industry Expert, Global Financial Services Business Unit, Huawei Enterprise BG, stressed that with the changing demand of customers and the market, banks must realize that digitalization has become a necessity. Key movements towards this digital transformation include: building an edge-terminal-cloud collaboration system; capitalizing the value of data and algorithms; and establishing a new financial intelligence service model featuring cloud-based training and edge-terminal reasoning.
In the field of education, Edwin Diender, Chief Digital Transformation Officer of Global Government Business Unit, Huawei Enterprise BG, pointed out that ICT is swiftly transforming teaching and learning. Education is life-long and ever-more personalized. With new digital models emerging across the board — in classrooms, research labs, and administrative offices, there is access to knowledge anytime, anywhere. The future of intelligent and digital education has arrived.”
In the service field, Hank Stokbroekx, Vice President, Enterprise Services, Huawei Enterprise BG, said in his speech that Digital Transformation means leveraging technology to optimize business outcomes and customer experience. This is an ongoing process that will play out over many years. And because the technology tends to be both complex and of critical importance, the operational processes need to be highly automated to facilitate services that can predict and preempt problems.
