Huawei Technologies (Malaysia) Sdn Bhd (Huawei Malaysia) has entered into a strategic partnership agreement recently with Axiata Enterprise, the B2B unit of Axiata Group Berhad (“Axiata”).
The partnership will enable both companies to collaborate strategically in offering enterprise products and solutions as well as IT/Cloud services to jointly help enterprises succeed in digital transformation.
In line with the agreement, both companies will engage in in-depth collaborations to explore, develop and market solutions for enterprises specifically within Axiata’s footprint across ASEAN and South Asia including Bangladesh, Sri Lanka and Nepal.
The partnership agreement was signed by Chief Executive Officer of Axiata Enterprise, Dr Gopi Kurup and Managing Director of Huawei for Axiata Key Account, Mr. Ken Zhao.
Dr Gopi said, “We are excited to be partnering Huawei, a global provider of information and communications technology infrastructure products and solutions. This collaboration is expected to unlock business synergies with joint Go To Market Enterprise and Cloud solutions and services to our B2B clients as we support them on their digital transformation efforts”.
“The advent of 5G technology, coupled with Cloud & AI are opening up new horizons in driving next-level digitalisation for rapidly evolving enterprises. As we jointly develop solutions that will benefit clients across our regional footprint, this partnership also presents us the opportunity to optimise core competencies in the long run,” Dr Gopi said.
Managing Director of Huawei for Axiata Key Account, Mr Ken Zhao said: “This collaboration is based on our already strong long-term partnership foothold with Axiata, by not only being involved in the conventional business but also by participating in the growth of Axiata’s Enterprise business.”
“Huawei is committed to building an open and collaborative ecosystem of shared success. Leveraging Axiata’s extensive market presence across ASEAN and South Asia we aim to provide customers with the best options that meet the needs of diverse markets.”
“Axiata Enterprise and its participating companies are important players in Huawei’s ecosystem and key to practicing the guiding principle of BDII (Business-driven ICT Infrastructure). This is also the strategic principle that Huawei follows in providing ICT products and solutions over the long term,” Zhao said, adding that this will also help to equip Enterprises to cope with rapid changes in the business environment.
