Huawei Mobile Services announced and will offer direct access to state-of-the-art hardware and AI
At the first ever UK and Ireland Huawei Developer Conference, the company revealed a bold new strategy to connect with the biggest businesses across the region to offer a brand new solution to enable them to access and grow their user base and build new revenue streams.
Huawei Mobile Services, which the company claimed is set to become the third largest mobile ecosystem globally, already has four million users in the UK alone, 600 million mobile active users across more than 170 countries, including 68 million in Europe, and will provide businesses with the opportunity to access multiple markets, including remote access to the Chinese market.
The Huawei Developer Conference was attended by some of the most prominent and influential businesses including 18 media companies, nine banks and 12 high street retailers, all learning about the possibilities offered by Huawei Mobile Services, including direct access to state-of-the-art hardware and artificial intelligence (AI) technology.
The launch of 24 Huawei Mobile Services Core Kits was also announced, providing businesses and developers with access to open developer kits in order that they might have an exceptional user experience when developing and then integrating their apps into the Huawei AppGallery.
To support the strategy, the Huawei Developer Programme also announced a dedicated £20 million investment plan to help promote UK and Irish developers working with Huawei Mobile Services and intending to join the Huawei AppGallery.
The investment is part of a wider global plan, presented by Richard Yu, CEO of Huawei’s Consumer Business Group, in Munich last September, which provides a total investment of $3 billion. Huawei UK and Ireland is immediately offering the chance to claim a £20,000 financial incentive for any app uploaded to the Huawei AppGallery by the 31 of January 2020.
All of these tools will allow businesses to create the next generation of apps, seamlessly integrate them into the Huawei AppGallery, and ultimately prepare for the fast-approaching, fully connected future.
Anson Zhang, managing director of Huawei UK’s consumer business group commented: “Today’s announcement concerning our Huawei Mobile Services offering, highlights our ongoing commitment and support for UK and Irish businesses and developers. In recent years we have grown significantly and owe our success to the consumers and partners who have chosen and believed in us. As a sign of that support and commitment to the UK and Irish market, we have announced our £20 million investment plan to recognise and incentivise our partners; so that jointly we can build an outstanding ecosystem together. Ultimately, we envision an all-scenario intelligent consumer experience for the future of Huawei Mobile Services and will provide businesses and developers with the opportunity to reach new audiences, expand and monetise, as they prepare for the fully connected world.”
