THE ROAD TO AUTOMOTIVE DIGITAL TRANSFORMATION
With its global system of partners, Huawei provides advice and guidance to the auto industry across much of its value chain. In the business IT area, research, development and production benefit from agile solutions in the cloud computing, computer-aided engineering (CAE) and high-performance computing (HPC) fields. In the car IT field, Huawei helps automakers and their partners develop new market opportunities that result from growing digitization and the on-demand economy.
