Brazil’s digital economy and transformation was the focus of the Huawei Cloud Summit Brazil, held in Sao Paulo. The event brought together government officials, experts, customers and partners to explore technological innovations and digital solutions from local enterprises.
The event highlighted Huawei’s 25-year commitment to the country, typified by its ‘In Brazil, For Brazil' stance. Derrick Sun, CEO of Huawei Brazil, added that Huawei strives to become an important partner for Brazil's digitalisation and green and low-carbon development.
Huawei Cloud has been delivering high quality, low latency services in Brazil since 2019, with more than 80 Huawei Cloud services released. There has been significant growth in carriers, ISV, e-commerce, logistics, and fintech, making Huawei the fastest-growing cloud in Brazil.
Mark Chen, President of Huawei Cloud Global Solution Sales, said cutting-edge innovation and industry expertise enabled the company to provide the cloud foundation for an intelligent world and provide better technologies, practices, and services.
Better technologies from Huawei Cloud
Technical innovation has long been the focus of Huawei Cloud, with more than 240 cloud services and 100,000 APIs launched.
As the only founding member of the Cloud Native Computing Foundation (CNCF) from Asia, Huawei Cloud continuously delivers cutting-edge cloud native services along with comprehensive products and solutions from Infrastructure as a Service, Technology as a Service, to Expertise as a Service.
At this Summit, Huawei Cloud showcased its latest achievements in cloud native, AI, data governance, databases, and digital content production.
These included Pangu Models 3.0 – leveraging AI for a wide range of industries including finance, manufacturing, mining, meteorology, and railway. In meteorology, the Pangu weather model is the first AI model to have surpassed state-of-the-art numerical weather prediction (NWP) methods. Predicting the trajectory of a typhoon for the next 10 days used to take 5 hours – Pangu can achieve that in just 10 seconds.
Huawei Cloud also delivers DataArts, a one-stop data governance pipeline to convert huge volumes of distorted data into high-quality data for better decision-making. Creditas, a major fintech in Brazil, leverages DataArts to maximise the value of financial data and evaluate loan requests from customers.
GaussDB, an ultra-distributed, ultra-scalable cloud database has been widely applied in sectors like banking, insurance, securities, and energy. MV Sistemas, the largest medical information company in Brazil, seamlessly migrated its data from on-premises databases to GaussDB to efficiently process and analyse complex data at scale. This migration allowed MV Sistemas to intelligently manage their data while ensuring cost-effectiveness.
MetaStudio is Huawei Cloud's one-stop digital content production pipeline. Utilising the Pangu virtual human model, MetaStudio can produce virtual humans in just three minutes.
Better practices with Huawei Cloud
Huawei Cloud has established 84 availability zones (AZs) in 30 regions and serves over three million customers in more than 170 countries and regions.
Huawei Cloud is extending its digital transformation expertise into Brazil, with Yang Hua, President of Huawei Cloud Brazil, sharing insights on innovation at the Summit.
He introduced five industry-specific solutions – e-commerce, media, finance, digital government, and carrier – which aim to expedite the digital transformation journey of Brazilian enterprises.
For e-commerce companies, Huawei Cloud is able to enhance consumer analysis and search precision by 10%, speed-up page loading by 30%, double the resource elasticity, and ensure smooth live streaming with low-bit HD technologies.
When it comes to the media industry, Huawei Cloud is improving content productivity, enhancing user experience, and fostering innovation. During the 2022 FIFA World Cup, for example, Huawei Cloud Low Latency Live (LLL) reduced live latency from 3 seconds to 800 milliseconds.
Huawei Cloud has also successfully accelerated the completion of a digital banking project from several months to just a few days. On top of that, DataArts helps banks to combat fraud and manage risks associated with the pre-loan, in-loan, and post-loan processes. Banks can also use Huawei Cloud virtual humans for product introduction, customer services, training, and enablement.
In the government services field, Huawei Cloud eases the build of e-government clouds and unifies resource construction, application development, and data management.
Huawei Cloud helps carriers go digital, improve efficiency, accelerate innovation, and increase revenue.
