Huawei is showcasing its ‘platform + ecosystem’ portfolio of innovations at GITEX Technology Week 2017, designed to equip Middle East organisations for the next big step on the road to digital transformation.
Under the theme ‘Leading New ICT, the Road to Digital Transformation’ Huawei’s booth Z-D20 in Za’abeel Hall will demonstrate not only the power of global technology platforms through the latest IOT, cloud, SDN and Big Data innovations, but also the digital ecosystem of collaboration through path-breaking business and technology alliances, and the latest co-created solutions from OpenLab Dubai.
Governments in the region have embraced the digital transformation through their national agendas and organisations are reinventing their business models through digital strategies. All-cloud, or the full ‘cloudification’ of networks, operations systems, and services, is the most effective enabler to bring the digital vision into reality.
“As the Digital Age enters a new era driven by the evolution of the cloud, the Middle East is approaching a new milestone with Cloud 2.0. At Huawei, we make it our priority to ensure that organisations in the region are equipped for the next wave of digitalisation. As a gathering of the Middle East’s ICT government and enterprise ICT leaders, GITEX is an ideal platform to showcase our latest business-driven ICT infrastructure that empowers organisations to deliver value across a range of vertical sectors that are most relevant to the Middle East,” said Alaa ElShimy, managing director and vice president, Enterprise Business, Huawei Middle East.
At GITEX Technology Week 2017, visitors will experience Huawei’s transformative platforms and solutions for various verticals including public safety and e-Government, transportation, digital banking, and smart utilities. Some highlights will include cutting-edge new product launches, new solutions and new partnerships in collaboration with industry-leading partners.
Huawei will also host Middle East Innovation Day with the theme ‘Exploration, Lights the Way Forward’, on Day 1 of GITEX at Sheikh Maktoum Hall, Zone B of Dubai World Trade Center. Part of a global series, the event will feature keynote sessions and a panel discussion by renowned ICT experts, scholars, and policymakers to envision how digital transformation will shape the future of enterprises in the Middle East and the role that governments and policy makers play in the future of ICT.
The third annual Huawei Certified Internetwork Expert (HCIE) Panel Discussion and Award Ceremony will take place on Day 3 of GITEX to discuss the importance of ICT talent development in the changing landscape and honour outstanding talent performers in the HCIE programme.
