Cao Yiming, VP of Huawei Digital Service Product Line, launching the Digital inCloud Program 2015-2016 at Huawei's Innovation and Transformation Summit 2015
At its recently-concluded 2015 Innovation and Transformation Summit held in Bali, Huawei launched its 2015-2016 Digital inCloud Programme, which aims to connect global carriers and partners to build a digital ecosystem.
According to the Chinese telco, the solution will help to facilitate the ease of distribution and trade between consumer, carriers and partners of digital products and services. This facilitation will be achieved through improved content aggregation, and better management of local and global digital content.
The new programme will include the Digital inCloud Telecom Capability Cloud Service. Acting as a bridge between telecom carriers and partners, Digital inCloud aggregates global carriers' telecom capabilities, providing a "one-stop service" to partners. At the same time, it also provides a new channel for carriers to realise the telecom capability monetisation.
In 2016, Huawei said that this service will complete the capability aggregation of more than 300 carriers globally.
Additionally, the Digital inCloud programme also includes Global Service Innovation Cloud (GSIC), which provides a business innovation and incubation environment based on telecom capability. Through GSIC, partners will be able to better achieve innovation, commercial launch and monetisation of telecom enterprise businesses.
"This is very much focused on B2B (business-to-business). Most of our businesses, and even most of our partners, are only focused on the individual service," said Cao Yiming, Vice President, Digital Service Product Line, Huawei. "I believe B2B is booming, and everyone will start to shift their focus towards this."
Lastly, Huawei also announced an enhanced version of its inTouch programme with the inTouch Partner Service 2.0. To further improve the service for partners, this version includes updates of several core capabilities, such as signing, service launching, distribution, settlement and service quality management.
"In our Digital inCloud Programme, we are very confident that Huawei will put more energy and more resources in the digital cloud to aggregate more partners, as well as to service the partner and operator side," said Cao.
He added that Huawei plans to aggregate over 4000 partners, with 35K+ digital services for over 80 carriers in 2016. This is a marked increase from the aggregation of over 2000 partners, and the provision of 200K+ digital services for nearly 60 carriers in 2015.
At the summit, the Huawei South Pacific region also launched Digital Transformation Standard Operating Procedure (SOP), which provides the Speed TTM, Smart Management, and Secure Operation standard operating processes for carriers and partners.
The DT SOP will accelerate the digital service transformation of carriers in the South Pacific region and help them build a carrier-centric digital service value chain asnd ecosystem, to help partners aggregated by inTouch realise fast monetisation. It will also help provide digital services such as colour video, music, game and social networking to achieve a win-win business pattern.
