[Hanover, Germany, March 6, 2012]: Huawei, a leading global information and communications technology (ICT) solutions provider, along with its partners, today showcased a wide range of integrated ICT solutions that meet the specific needs of different industries, demonstrating how Huawei's capabilities are able to help global organizations tap on opportunities presented by the changing trends in today's ICT era at CeBIT, one of the largest technology trade shows.
At the keynote presentation on the first day of CeBIT, John Roese, Senior Vice President of Huawei's North America R&D, shared with over 400 enterprise CIOs and IT experts the new reality for enterprises brought about by the "consumerization of IT", and the paradigm shift required to address it. Compared to the continuous innovations in the device and internet industries which have resulted in the rapid growth and development of the consumer market, the enterprise technology market has lagged behind in innovation.
Enterprises need to respond to new challenges brought about by the "consumerization of IT", and can no longer ignore new technologies that are being introduced into the enterprise space. With the convergence of communications, enterprise and consumer technologies, enterprise organizations need to fully leverage innovative ICT technologies to better address challenges and manage their business so as to enhance competitiveness.
"Huawei's comprehensive capabilities and experience in communications technology, enterprise and consumer industries places us in a unique position to help our enterprise customers succeed in today's era of ICT convergence. Based on customer-centric innovations, Huawei's solutions help enterprise customers accelerate the shift in the evolution and development of ICT," said Roese.
Bringing to life its vision of "A Better Way" for enterprises, Huawei, along with 12 of its solution partners, will be showcasing its comprehensive portfolio of integrated ICT products and solutions at CeBIT. This includes capabilities in cloud computing, data centers, network solutions, and unified communications and collaboration that help enterprise organizations improve business operations and achieve competitiveness in today's changing ICT landscape. Additionally, sector-specific ICT solutions will also be showcased for industries including government and public sector, electricity, transportation, finance, energy and large enterprises. Huawei's container data centre will also be situated outside the Huawei exhibition hall to showcase mobile data center capabilities.
In addition to showcasing its products and solutions, Huawei will conduct a series of open speeches and technical symposiums at its booth throughout the week-long CeBIT event.
