Huawei—a leading global ICT solutions provider—has kicked off a nation-wide Cloud Innovation Road Show collaborating with representatives from the government and private sector to preview how organizations in Qatar can benefit through new advancements in IT “cloud” technology over the coming five years. Many of the world’s most advanced IT cloud products and solutions will be showcased this week during a Huawei Cloud Innovation Road Show which has kicked off in Doha.

“Societies across the globe are entering into a new era of in-depth integration of the digital and physical worlds, changing the way that organizations deliver on-demand services to the public,” says Mr. Fu Liangzhu, General Manager of Huawei Qatar. “In building a better connected Qatar, it is Huawei’s aim to help make IT simple and make business more agile. We pledge to help governments, corporates and telcos to better understand the challenges they face, the market needs, and position their Cloud offerings to monetize huge amounts of digital information for extending their competitive advantage.”

One of the highlights of the Huawei road show will be a Huawei Demo Truck which gives visitors the opportunity to experience firsthand the latest innovations in data center solutions, virtual servers & desktops, plus a wide range of vertical industry solutions. That will include access to a fully-functional Huawei data center container operating in a live environment inside the demo truck. As part of the campaign, Huawei’s Cloud Innovation Forum will also offer guidance on how new cloud-based IT solutions can be applied in various enterprise environments, particularly in fields of oil & gas, healthcare, education, and banking & finance.

With much more data being generated today in Qatar compared with 10 years ago, participants recognize that much of the technology deployed previously wasn’t designed to cope with the size and variety of data types that exists today. Furthermore, deciding how to process this data and sort out what is valuable and what is not remains a key challenge for many organizations; one that this forum will look to address in helping governments and enterprises to make more informed business decisions.

Huawei is currently one of the leading pioneers within Qatar’s technology sector providing the most comprehensive IT portfolio in the industry to customers in the telecom, enterprise, and consumer space.  This includes Smart City solutions leveraging innovations in e-LTE broadband, as well as a tailored Smart Stadium Solution which uses high-density WiFi for connecting people at events like the 2022 FIFA World Cup.
