Huawei turns attention to South African enterprise ISPs

Huawei turns attention to South African enterprise ISPs

For the first time in South Africa, Huawei has introduced its ICT solutions for ISPs looking to support local enterprises.

At the iWeek conference in Durban this week, the multinational ICT company said it believes ISPs are required to go beyond providing connectivity alone in an increasingly competitive business environment where they also need to offer managed services, managed user applications and soon, services around the Internet of Things (IoT).

Charlin Zhao, ISP Solutions Director for the Huawei Enterprise Business Group says the company is committed to partnering with ISPs in South Africa to help enterprises achieve their goals of digital upgrade with agility and intelligence at the core.

"Huawei recognises the challenges brought by the internet industry and we firmly believe that comprehensive cloudification is the most effective method and technical support that is currently available for enterprises to achieve digital transformation. The Huawei ISP solutions portfolio is not a one product compromise, but an end-to-end solution for ISPs in the cloud era."

Zhao emphasises that the impact of cloud computing, Big Data, IoT and mobility on industries is ever increasing.

"Changes in business models, enterprise IT architecture, and the industry ecosystem are inevitable."

To help address the challenges faced by ISPs, Huawei says it has developed a new ICT architecture that features Cloud-Pipe-Device collaborated solutions to support new business innovation and commercial models.

Highlighted solutions include cloud data centres, Data Centre Interconnections (DCI), enterprise leased lines, network access and cloud Wi-Fi, to enable a new cloud and network services ecosystem for ISPs.

Swaziland Financial Intelligence Unit relies on SAP Business One Published on 14 December 2017

After becoming fully operational earlier this year, the Swaziland Financial Intelligence Unit (SFIU) was faced with the challenge of limited infrastructure and resources to capture and manage its data. Not only was the manual input required time consuming, but the propensity for human error was leading to a lack of reliable data. Having researched and reviewed the top ten technology infrastructure solutions used both locally and internationally, the decision was unanimous to move ahead with SAP Business One, from 4most, as solution of choice.
