The SAP-Huawei relationship goes from strength to strength. Each year our two companies work together to deliver greater value to customers of all sizes and in all industries around the world. In this article, we will examine SAP’s new messaging focused on Live Business, provide an overview of the SAP-Huawei relationship, discuss some of the many SAP-Huawei customer successes and brainstorm about the future of the SAP-Huawei relationship.
Over the past five years, SAP has built strong solutions based on our revolutionary in-memory technology called SAP HANA. Our aim is to enable our customers on their digital transformation roadmaps. This means we are helping them transition from vulnerable traditional businesses into nimble organizations capable of competing in the fast-moving, digital economy.
SAP’s vision of a Live Business is one that predicts the future instead of reporting the past. It means an organization with totally agile business processes — connecting every employee and asset to a single, intelligent digital core system — one that can anticipate, simulate, and innovate new opportunities on the fly.
What this means in practice is enabling businesses to rapidly respond to unexpected shifts in consumer demand, new competitive threats and other potentially disruptive events including things outside their normal span of focus, such as natural disasters that might affect their business.
With an innovative digital core like SAP S/4HANA, a business can be fully connected to its customers, suppliers, and employees. Live Business is more than a new advertising slogan. Live Business represents SAP’s vision of a seamless digital business that enables our customers to sense, respond, learn, adapt, and predict to create value in the moment.
The exciting aspect about this when talking about our partnership with Huawei, is that SAP’s vision of Live Business is very much in concert with Huawei’s vision of a Better Connected World. Together we are transforming organizations into digital businesses.
Huawei is one of SAP’s global technology partners. Our strategic relationship has been successful and fruitful for both organizations and, most importantly, for our joint customers. The SAP and Huawei partnership has brought about many innovative solutions with new hardware choices offering higher reliability and better price/performance.
The exciting aspect of this is SAP and Huawei are also highly compatible and complementary to each other, with SAP as a provider of enterprise applications and Huawei as a provider of IT infrastructure. Our end-to-end solutions, focused on Industry 4.0, IoT, Big Data, and cloud computing, help accelerate our customers’ digital transformation across multiple vertical industries.
