Huawei has launched a $1 billion initiative that aims to support developers, the company announced Monday.
Over the next five years, the company hopes the plan will help it facilitate the creation of new apps and solutions and create business partnerships with participating developers.
“The aim is to help developers create innovative services and rapidly respond to customers’ business needs, said Huawei’s Executive Director and President of Products and Solutions Ryan Ding. “Over the next five years, Huawei will invest US$1 billion to implement its Developer Enablement Plan, build a developer enablement platform, and jointly innovate with developers.”
According to a Huawei release, the plan will consist of five initiatives, including a fund to offer equipment, funds and expertise to participants to develop solutions; development support that will include an open platform and remote labs for participants; talent training to equip developers with new skills in research and development, sales and delivery; a developer marketing fund to support the building of solution ecosystems, marketing and sales incentives; and Huawei certification to verify the development capabilities and solutions of participating developers.
Among the resources provided to participants will be technologies like cloud computing, Big Data, IoT, mobile broadband, SDN and BYOD, as well as a dedicated developer-centric platform called eSDK which will be based on the LEADS concept, the company said.
