With the global internet economy growing, Huawei wants to put up an infrastructure that will help it grow alongside. The company is launching its first Tech Day in Manila on Thursday with 1Gbps wifi access and blockchain-powered gaming as a major focus of the event.
On November 11, Huawei Philippines hosted Tech Day 2021, with the goal of learning how forward-thinking businesses are using breakthrough ICT technologies to build digital infrastructures for the intelligent future.
While the pandemic has put a halt to the epidemic, results vary from firm to company, industry to industry, and nation to country. Going digital is one of the keys to thriving. COVID-19, according to McKinsey, has accelerated digital transformation by seven years worldwide and ten years in Asia Pacific. Resilience has become a crucial development strategy for firms in the face of an increasingly complicated business environment, and digital technology is the key to establishing this resilience.
We will address three major shifts as digital transformation enters a new phase. First and foremost, digital transformation will become an integral part of office operations. Second, the whole process will be done digitally. Third, more businesses will profit from digital technology. This new phase of digital transformation, which includes sensing, connectivity, storage, and computing, as well as foundational technologies and software ecosystems, will create new requirements and challenges for the digital infrastructure, according to DICT’s national digital transformation strategy. We intend to discuss the Digital Infrastructures that are Powering a Digital Philippines in depth with our customers and partners.
During his lecture, Todd Liu, Director of Huawei Philippines’ Enterprise Business Department, remarked,
Early this September, Huawei released the Intelligent World 2030 report, which provides insights into ICT technology and application trends over the next decade, as well as explanations of how ICT technologies can solve critical problems and challenges in human development, as well as what new opportunities they can bring to organizations and individuals. According to Huawei’s research, worldwide connections will reach 200 billion by 2030, and yearly data created will rise by 23 times, surpassing one yottabyte for the first time.
Huawei will continue to develop with partners for digital transformation journeys in a future where everything is sensed, connected, and intelligent. Many high-profile individuals were asked to speak at the event to support this. Dennis Omila, CIO of UnionBank of the Philippines, was among those who said,
By re-imagining and re-engineering consumer touchpoints, Union Bank of the Philippines has challenged conventional banking channels. We have chosen to partner with Huawei to build a new generation innovation campus network system based on the SDN technical architecture, deploying Huawei CloudEngine data switches and Huawei iMaster NCE intelligent network management and control system to implement intelligent network deployment, elastic scaling, and agile service rollout.
Dr. John Romagna, Luen Thai Holdings Limited’s Executive Vice President for Systems and Information Technology, said that
Luen Thai is undergoing a major industrial revolution 4.0 transformation of our information technology (IT) system, which includes not only digitalization and artificial intelligence (AI), but also a complete transformation of our multi-function, multi-location, and multi-business group’s financial backbone. We are pleased to have picked HUAWEI to accompany us on this cloud trip.
As the Philippines recovers economically, this exchange of ideas will be very beneficial to societal development, particularly in terms of digital transformation and the digital economy, and will help companies become more adaptable in an uncertain era.
To date, Huawei has partnered with 267 Fortune Global 500 organizations to advance digital transformation. Huawei is dedicated to becoming the chosen partner for digital transformation for all sectors in the Philippines, with over 20 years of engagement.
