The three-day Huawei Connect 2016 trade show in Shanghai was all about digitalization. In numerous presentations and keynote speeches, industry experts from around the world shed light on the future potential of the cloud, big data, the Internet of Things and the like. Deutsche Telekom, whose Open Telekom Cloud has catapulted Europe into the age of digitization, also participated in the event.
Europe is trailing behind in digital transformation
Together with its partner, the Chinese tech company Huawei, Deutsche Telekom presented numerous innovations at the Huawei Connect congress in Shanghai – and clearly outlined the path to a digital future. The core topic that encompasses almost all promising innovations is the cloud.
Anette Bronder, head of T-Systems’ Digital Division, openly admitted right at the beginning of her presentation: “Europe has overslept the first phase of digitization!” While this is true at least in comparison to the United States and some Asian countries, the Europeans are catching up fast! Developed jointly by Deutsche Telekom and Huawei, the Open Telekom Cloud is the main driving force behind the ongoing digital transformation.
The Open Telekom Cloud is gaining ground
In addition to being used by the major research institution CERN for storing and evaluating their data, the Open Telekom Cloud has also found its way into the day-to-day working lives of many companies. Transparent pricing, ease of use, flexibility, security and scalable resources make the Open Telekom Cloud an attractive solution for small and large companies alike. With the Open Telekom Cloud, Deutsche Telekom offers its customers a fast and convenient way to the cloud. It is no surprise that Bronder describes the company’s two-year reorientation towards cloud products as one of the largest transformations in the company’s history – a commitment that will pay off. Deutsche Telekom is already one of the top players in the public cloud and is planning to constantly improve and expand its the range of cloud services in the future.
The cloud as a stepping stone for the IoT
From connected cars to smart refrigerators, the Internet of Things (IoT) is set to change the world in the next few years. Bronder clearly stated that Deutsche Telekom is ready for this development. The cloud serves as a stepping stone for IoT innovations – and Deutsche Telekom and its partner will focus on this market in the years to come.
