pure technology group is attending ‘Huawei Connect 2017’ in Shanghai this week, accompanying customers to the global conference and a tour of the R&D Centre in Shenzhen before stopping off in Hong Kong. 

Huawei Connect is an annual event attracting over 20,000 ICT industry leaders and experts gathered from over 150 countries and regions to jointly explore the direction of technology.  The theme of this year's event is ‘Grow with the Cloud’, focusing on the practical implementation of Huawei's cloud strategy. 


Guo Ping, Huawei's Rotating CEO, kicked off the event with a keynote entitled ‘Grow with the Cloud: Enabling an Intelligent World’ and made the following statement:


“The cloud is a cornerstone of the intelligent world,” he said in his keynote, adding: “Clouds around the world will begin to converge – becoming more and more centralised. In the future, we predict there will be five major clouds in the world. Huawei will work with our partners to build one of those five clouds.”


Competing with AWS, Azure, Google and IBM, Huawei will build a cloud network based on its own public clouds as well as develop a global cloud alliance with its key telco partners, such as Deutsche Telekom, Telefonica and Orange.

pure technology’s Group Procurement Manager, Terrence Kerrigan (pictured) will provide more information on the Huawei updates as they become available and he’ll be available at PT17 to answer any queries.
