The Shanghai Expo Center is hosting the Huawei Cloud Congress 2013, where the global information and communications (ICT) giant is launching its new “Fusion” strategy for the information technology (IT) world. Huawei has a large number of prestigious industry partners, such as SAP, Seagate (News - Alert) and Intel, among others; the event is themed “Make IT Simple, Make Business Agile.”
The company’s deputy chairman, Eric Xu, described the IT industry as “an open industry,” noting that “Huawei (News - Alert) has a very clear strategic roadmap.” Huawei, he says, will “focus on developing and offering future-oriented cloud data center solutions and products, including servers, storage, data center networks, cloud operating systems as well as cloud management platforms.”

Xu added, “Meanwhile, Huawei is committed to conducting open and close collaborations with partners across multiple industries, jointly offering innovative, competitive and differentiated ICT products and solutions to global enterprises, helping customers realize informationization."
Huawei’s “Fusion” strategy will allow the company to work closer with its partners to create more real solutions for customers to improve business effectiveness. It will blend various internet technologies that include: storage, computing, visualization, and data center technologies. This blending will create the groundwork for an open platform that will allow for system integration, deployment, management, operations and maintenance by third-party systems. There are many benefits of the “Fusion” strategy, but the primary benefit will be that it will simplify IT deployment and start-up time for businesses.
The president of Huawei’s IT product line supported Xu’s statements, describing IT as “an area of strategic growth” for the company. He called Huawei’s innovation in the area one of “unwavering commitment to technology innovation,” noting that the company currents has a team of more than 10,000 experts in IT R&D facilities. The “Fusion” strategy demonstrates Huawei’s commitment to the principles, proving that the company gives its core values and mission more than just lip service.
