Huawei Technologies and Accenture are expanding a strategic alliance to offer cloud service in China and Southeast Asia, the companies announced Thursday. Together the companies will offer solutions for communications service providers (CSPs) and Enterprise Private Clouds.
The companies will leverage Accenture’s IaaS offering with Huawei’s private cloud infrastructure to offer private cloud solutions to a range of industries. They will also offer CSPs business support system and systems integration services to support functions like billing and customer care.
“In an era where the physical and digital worlds are increasingly converging, no enterprise is able to address all customer needs alone. Enterprises need to collaborate openly and integrate their resources and capabilities to help customers succeed,” said Mr. Eric Xu, Rotating CEO of Huawei. “Our collaboration with Accenture will further augment Huawei’s business in the enterprise ICT market, enabling us to build on our diverse product portfolio to offer our enterprise and carrier customers even more innovative software and services solutions that support them in boosting efficiency and driving revenue growth.”
The alliance builds on a partnership established in 2010, when Huawei and Accenture began offering joint business support software services to telecommunications companies.
Since announcing a target of $10 billion in enterprise revenue by 2017, Huawei has been expanding its enterprise services reach. The Chinese company began a partnership with Infosys in September to provide enterprise cloud and big data services.
Huawei remains focussed on expanding its service and customer base in China and emerging markets, as it faces significant barriers to some lucrative developed markets due to security concerns.
