To address these powerful changes, Huawei launched a new marketing slogan defining its position for the enterprise market: "Leading New ICT, Building a Better Connected World".
Speaking at the CeBIT 2016 Global Conference, Mr. Yan Lida, President of Enterprise Business Group, Huawei, said: "As new ICT including Cloud Computing, Big Data, the Internet of Things (IoT), and Software-Defined Networking mature, a cloud-pipe-device integrated new ICT architecture is emerging to help enterprises accelerate digital transformation. Based on technology innovation, Huawei aspires to build a sustainable and win-win ecosystem by developing an open, flexible and elastic platform. In line with our Business Driven ICT Infrastructure (BDII) guiding principle and strategy of 'Focus' and 'Being Integrated', Huawei is committed to innovating jointly with partners to create value for governments and enterprises across industry sectors, helping them lead the new ICT age. Together we build a better connected world."
