On June 23, the “Nanjing Huawei Cloud and Computing City Summit 2020” was successfully held in Nanjing as a major event in Innovation Week 2020.
Zhang Jinghua, a member of the Standing Committee of the Jiangsu Province Party Committee and Secretary of the Nanjing Municipal Party Committee, said Huawei hosted the first summit this year in Nanjing City. The launch of major science and technology projects globally has expanded their influence during Nanjing Innovation Week, providing strong support for Nanjing to deepen open cooperation and innovation and to accumulate global innovation resources. Lu Yong, Senior Vice President of Huawei and Regional President of China, said that cities should enter the era of urban innovation 2.0, where application innovation and core innovation go hand in hand. Huawei will fully support the development of core innovation in Nanjing and assist Nanjing in its innovation strategy.
During the meeting, the joint innovation strategy between Jiangsu and Huawei was completely modernized. The Jiangsu Province Department of Industry and Information Technology and Huawei officials signed a framework cooperation agreement for the construction of new infrastructure, and the Beilian Guoxin Computing Platform developed by Kunpeng (Powered by Kunpeng) was officially launched. At the same time, to keep the technology “warm”, Huawei launched the “Yunze Plan” in Jiangsu to support the sustainable development of small and medium enterprises.
Nanjing has taken the lead to enter the stage of urban innovation 2.0
From ancient capital of humanity to famous city of innovation, since Nanjing launched the “121” innovation-based development strategy in 2018, a first-class innovation ecosystem has been built with three major aspects: core resources, learn from the experience of others and apply it, and industrial design. “Nanjing attaches great importance to innovation and understands it very well.” In his speech, Zhang Jinghua said: “We have proposed building an innovative city with global influence and carried out a series of reforms and explorations in four major areas: higher-level design, industrial structure, innovation and basic research.”
Zhang Jinghua mentioned that Nanjing will always support the development of Huawei business in Nanjing, will continue to support the promotion and application of innovative products, support Huawei industrial chain and supply chain construction, build various cooperation platforms and promote local enterprises and affiliate enterprises to actively integrate into Huawei’s green chain, thus paving the way for the era of the digital economy.
Chi Yu, Deputy Director of the Jiangsu Province Industry and Information Technology Department, said: “Over the next three years, the Jiangsu Province Party Committee and the Provincial Government will invest 200 billion Yuan in the construction of new infrastructure, will promote and build industrial internet platforms and 5G+ industrial internet, develop advanced production clusters such as the Internet of Things and strengthen investment in cloud computing, and accelerate the implementation of collaborative innovation in the industrial chain and its strong renewal, promoting Jiangsu’s high-quality industries in Jiangsu from an average to high level in the value chain. ”
Lu Yong gave a keynote speech entitled “Common innovation – the cornerstone of urban development through new technologies,” in which he stressed that the foundation shapes the superstructure and application-oriented innovation 1.0 can no longer meet the current needs of urban development. Cities need to increase investment in core innovations and move into the era of urban innovation 2.0, where application innovation and core innovation go hand in hand. Take advantage of the opportunities brought by new infrastructures, make full use of new technologies such as 5G, cloud computing, artificial intelligence and use resources, mobilize the innovation enthusiasm of scientific research institutes, universities, government leadership institutions and leading enterprises, improve the capacity for basic innovation of the whole city and accelerate digitization and urban intelligence.
Lu Yong discussed many joint achievements of Huawei and Nanjing on basic innovation and industrial development. He said that in 2020, Huawei will fully improve its joint innovation strategy with Jiangsu and Nanjing and will fully support Nanjing to take the lead in the era of urban innovation 2.0.
At the Summit, the Jiangsu Province Industry and Information Technology Department officially signed a framework cooperation agreement with Huawei on the construction of new infrastructure, accelerating the implementation of new infrastructure projects in the field of 5G, smart city, vehicle internet and industrial Internet in Jiangsu.
The official launch of the Beilian Guoxin Computing Platform developed by Kunpeng (powered by Kunpeng) will encourage Jiangsu to build its own computing brand and provide the computing power needed for the new Jiangsu infrastructure.
Wotu Huawei Seminar (Nanjing) also officially started, exporting Huawei’s capabilities and resources to Jiangsu enterprises, helping enterprises by implementing digital transformation and innovation, while promoting innovation and industrial development.
Hong Fangming, President of Huawei Cloud China, stressed in his speech entitled “Global Innovation, Accelerating Smart Modernization of Government Institutions and Businesses” that the transformation and modernization of government and enterprises is an extremely complex systemic project. “Agility, innovation, security and collaboration” are often encountered in such processes. All aspects are involved, from the base technology to the application. Huawei itself is a huge manufacturer, with extensive technical experience and rich experience in government and business services. As the fastest growing cloud in the world, Huawei Cloud supports three deployment scenarios through a cloud infrastructure base, three platforms that enable the digital transformation of the industry, and four scenario-oriented services. There are four properties for government customers and enterprises, namely, full cloud-edge scenario, smart upgrading, data and green collaboration to accelerate the smart modernization of government institutions and enterprises in Jiangsu and promote innovation and urban development.
He also said that Huawei Cloud is the best partner for smart modernization of government and business.
The right time for smart government and business updating
During the meeting, Nie Yongjun, Director of the Science and Technology Innovation Bureau in Nanjing’s New Jiangbei District, shared how to build a “twin digital city” in Nanjing’s New Jiangbei District and businesses will truly feel what optimal and efficient services mean, enabling the entire Jiangbei District to become the smartest city, enabling green participants and partners to achieve better development.
Lu Zaigui, Director of the Industrial Transformation and Modernization Division of the Jiangsu Province Department of Industry and Information Technology (Auto Bureau), shared with the public the construction route of the pilot area nationwide for vehicle networks in Jiangsu. He noted that Jiangsu is relying on Jiangsu Mobile, Huawei and other enterprises to create a technical framework in a single center with three platforms as a global leader, setting a number of important domestic and international standards in many areas, such as coordination of road vehicles and intelligent transportation, providing strong support for the development of the automotive network industry.
Cloud for Good allows the tech to get “warm”
To promote the rapid implementation of “application innovation + basic innovation”, accelerate the construction of new infrastructure and support the healthy development of small and medium enterprises, Hong Fangming, Huawei Cloud China President Zhang Chunlei, Huawei Jiangsu CEO Lu Wei, General Manager of Huawei Jiangsu for Government Institutions and Enterprises, and Wang Zhen, General Manager of Huawei Jiangsu Cloud and Business Computing, and other leaders jointly launched the Jiangsu Action “Yunze Plan”.
The new infrastructure will strongly boost urban innovation 2.0. Lu Yong stressed: that “the road is being built in the era of urban innovation 2.0, with an equal focus on both basic innovation and application innovation, and Huawei will work with Jiangsu to promote progress through innovation, for accelerate smart modernization of government institutions and businesses and lay the foundation stone for urban development through new technologies.”
We innovate Jiangsu!
