Huawei invests in Middle East’s cloud computing market

Over the next three years, Huawei will deploy US$15 million in investments that will benefit more than 100 small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) in developing their cloud capabilities.

‘The Huawei Cloud Oasis Program will thus provide truly unique and rewarding offerings to local businesses, while safeguarding the region’s digital future through extensive training opportunities in the cloud arena,’ said Eric Wan, vice president of Cloud Marketing, Ecosystem and Partner Development at Huawei Middle East.

Around US$7.6 million will be allocated for partner development, more than US$2.5 million will be put behind credits and other cloud resources, and more than US$4.5 million in marketing support.

The programme was announced at a virtual event last week where Huawei brought together key industry players to explore collaboration in building a high-tech ecosystem.
