With digitization taking hold globally across society and business, traditional telecom operators have seeing profits drop, and now face the challenge of cutting costs and increasing revenue. Compared with leading Internet companies, operators have few advantages in operational and business innovation efficiencies. The key factor for this disparity is that leading Internet companies have broken data islands and built data assets as the core of a unified big data cloud platform, providing on-demand big data service to both internal and external operations for companies, which improves the internal operational efficiency and accelerates business innovation.
Compared with emerging Internet companies, telecom operators face greater challenges to build big data service capabilities, for example: 1) more complex organization structure, 2) a larger number of heterogeneous data centers, and 3) existing multi-vendor data analysis tools.
Relying on the global layout of R&D investment and years of experience in the telecom industry, Huawei developed an innovative big data PaaS platform based on the lightweight open source PaaS architecture for operators. For example, for a large operator, Huawei provides enterprise-level big data service capabilities that helps operators: double their resource utilization rate, reduce the cross-department data sharing period from months to hours, and shorten big data application TTM (Time to Market) from three to six months to a matter of weeks.
The summit awarded Huawei the “Most Innovative Big Data Cloud Platform Award” to praise the company’s continuous innovation in helping operators build big data capability. Huawei will continue to help operators establish enterprise-level big data cloud platforms on: cross-heterogeneous data center resource unified management and schedule, multi-tenant mechanism adapting to operators’ organization, various big data tools as cloud service, collaborative data asset catalog , and Tenant-oriented unified O&M to build a big data ecosystems, which help operators achieve digital operations.
