In addition, HUAWEI CLOUD has established more than 40 industrial Internet innovation centers to help 17,000 manufacturing companies with digital transformation.
EvenZeng, a senior analyst at Gartner, believes that many enterprises will now choose a cloud platform as a strategic supplier. They develop their own architecture on the public cloud based on the strategic supplier’s architecture and native environment. In the future, 50% of enterprise applications will be deployed on On a limited number of public cloud platforms, or deployed on the distributed cloud of cloud providers, the current penetration rate of distributed cloud in China is not as high as in Europe and the United States, and there is still a lot of room for development.
In 2022, China’s cloud service providers will continue to increase. In addition to Amazon Cloud, Huawei Cloud, Alibaba Cloud, and Tencent Cloud, JD.com, Inspur, Kingsoft, Ping An, and the three major operators have all entered the market, and the market competition will become more intense. After more than ten years Development, cloud computing has sunk into various applications. In addition to strengthening technology accumulation and service innovation, manufacturers can truly grasp customer needs, whose cloud platform ecology can solve customer pain points, and who can master the development leadership in the next stage. right.
