Huawei and Software AG to deliver complete Internet of Things Solutions
Hanover, Germany, Tuesday, March 21, 2017
Huawei, a leading global information and communications technology solution provider, has announced a new partnership with Software AG (Frankfurt TecDAX: SOW) to support the increasing demand of companies for a complete one-stop shop Internet of Things solution. The partnership will deliver the hardware and software needed to provide a cloud-based IoT (Internet of Things) platform and the streaming analytic capabilities at the edge of the IoT that will allow for maximum speed and flexibility in operational and strategic decisions and responses.
As the Internet of Things increasingly impacts every enterprise and the entire global economy, more and more industrial enterprises understand that the new business opportunities are too vast; the challenges from new competitors too unpredictable and new customer expectations are too high for any enterprise to sit still.
To enable enterprises to take full control of their business strategies in a rapidly changing world and make those strategies flexible enough to react to the demands of digitalization when and where they need to, Huawei and Software AG are bringing together their core IoT competencies.
Huawei’s hardware and software offerings for Cloud and Edge computing, Huawei’s Open IoT Platform and Network Infrastructure capabilities combined with Software AG’s streaming analytics, hybrid enterprise integration and predictive analytics will result in an unparalleled offering for customers to adopt and deploy a full IoT infrastructure from the cloud to the edge of the Internet of Things.
“The Internet of Things, whether through Smart Industries, Smart Cities, Smart Energy or Connected Cars will impact society and the global economy on a massive scale. It will be truly game-changing for every enterprise”, stated Eric Duffaut, Chief Customer Officer, Software AG. “The power and breadth of Huawei’s Cloud and IoT platforms combined with the software based intelligence and integration capabilities of Software AG’s Digital Business Platform will allow any enterprise to harness the IoT and develop global, innovative digital product or services”.
“With Software AG’s capabilities and solutions, we are able to maximize the value of IoT and make it accessible to our customers wherever required. It fits seamlessly into our vision”, says Vincent Pang, President of Huawei Western Europe. “This cooperation continues to reflect our ongoing commitment to building cloud ecosystems with partners, and helping our European customers achieve greater business success.”
The partnership between Huawei and Software AG will have an initial focus on Europe. In the spirit of a modern partner ecosystem both companies are keen in broadening and completing the offerings via additional partners who can add specific industry, integration and technology expertise.
