The world is evolving thanks to the technological enhancement that is engulfing the world. The technological train has since left the station, those not on board risk never catching up and forever being left behind with no prospects of catching up.
There are efforts by many countries around the world to accelerate the digitization of various sectors, both within and without governments, mostly through the escalation of the convergence of both physical and digital worlds.
Many developing countries across the globe, Kenya included, are striving to install and embrace new technologies in the ICT sector in an effort to create new ecosystems and generally making ICT a cornerstone of industrial digitalization.
Kenya, for instance, has the Ministry of ICT that has been on the forefront of laying down infrastructure aimed at placing the country on the global map through digital literacy and transformation.
The effort to transform a country digitally cannot be left at the disposal of the government alone. In fact, in many developed countries, independent ICT service providers are attributed to playing key roles in revolutionizing sectors when it comes to ICT.
The use of ICT Giants
Global ICT giants in ICT infrastructure provision such as Huawei, in line with their open, cooperative, and win-win principles are teaming up partners and developers to explore the road to digital transformation and create business success for customers by maximizing their robust ICT capabilities.
According to Gartner’s Magic Quadrants, Huawei’s storage products remain in the Leaders quadrant while their hyper-converged infrastructure product FusionCube moved to the Challengers quadrant.
According to reports released by IDC, the HUAWEI CLOUD Government Cloud Solution and HUAWEI CLOUD FusionInsight Big Data Solution ranked first in overall performance in the Chinese market. At the same time, the HUAWEI CLOUD FusionAccess Desktop Solution was China’s bestseller.
Kenya is also set to receive a boost in her effort to widen and leverage the ICT infrastructure through the partnership between Huawei and Redington.
