The 7th annual flagship event for the global ICT industry, Huawei Connect 2022, began yesterday in Bangkok, Thailand. The theme of this year’s event is “Unleash Digital”, gathering over 10,000 ICT industry leaders, experts, and partners from around the world to explore how to more effectively unleash digital productivity, promote the digital economy, and build up stronger digital ecosystems.
At the event, Huawei shared the steps it’s taking to advance digital development across a wide range of industries and released 15+ innovative cloud services for the global market. Kicking off the event, Ken Hu, Huawei’s Rotating Chairman, delivered a keynote outlining three ways the ICT ecosystem can help break through common barriers in digital transformation:
- Boost digital infrastructure, including more robust connectivity and stronger, more diverse computing resources.
- Help organizations go beyond simple cloud adoption and truly make the most of cloud, focusing on advanced technology services that drive leapfrog development.
- Build out local digital ecosystems, including partner development, strengthening the digital talent pool, and providing more support for SMEs.
Jacqueline Shi, President of Huawei Cloud’s Global Marketing and Sales Service, said that Huawei Cloud would launch more than 15 innovations globally, covering cloud native, AI development, data governance, digital content, software development, and MacroVerse aPaaS.
At the event, Ken Hu also spoke about how the First Affiliated Hospital of the Medical School at Xi’an Jiaotong University used AI to expedite pharmaceutical R&D and new drug discovery. The three-day conference in Bangkok is the first stop on HUAWEI CONNECT’s global tour in 2022. For the first time in the Middle East, Huawei will introduce its HUAWEI CONNECT global event to Dubai. The 2nd stop of Huawei Connect 2022 will be running in parallel with GITEX GLOBAL 2022 on October 11th and 12th at Madinat Jumeirah.
