Digital transformation of small and medium enterprises (SMEs) is accelerating worldwide. Currently, there are about 220,000 small medium enterprises (SMEs) in Singapore. Of these, only two-thirds of businesses have survived for more than two years and less than half have made it beyond the five-year mark. SMEs are constantly challenged with liquidity constraints, operational efficiency, minimising cost and are competing with the technological prowess of larger corporations. Given the technological disruptions in the advent of 5G and AI, the SMEs need to be more efficiency and technologically savvy to adapt and grow.

So how can SMEs benefit from cloud computing?

O&M cost savings: In-house specialists will no longer be required to install or update software, manage servers or perform backups. The operation and management functions can be fully operated by cloud providers.

Application consolidation: Potential to consolidate separate application needs into one cloud computing service.

Efficient development: Huawei DevCloud provides a one-stop cloud R&D platform that includes project management, test management, code hosting, code checking, compilation & building, deployment, release warehouse, and pipeline functions. DevCloud allows SMEs to focus on the important application aspects that will bring value to the company and clients.

Maximise resource utilisation: Huawei’s IaaS platform provides flexible computing resources that are scalable in accordance to SMEs’ needs to maximise utilisation of digital resources.

Access to latest AI technologies: Investing in high performance computers is not a priority as Huawei Cloud AI allows SMEs to capitalise on shared resources, where companies will only be billed based on resources used.

In addition to being scalable and cost-effective, cloud computing also supports the availability of data and services on demand. With Huawei Cloud, SMEs will have access to 140 industry solutions across all sectors.

To help more SMEs benefit from cutting-edge, cloud-based technologies, HUAWEI CLOUD, a global player in cloud and AI, will be launching its Year-End Sales Carnival, from November 5 to December 10, 2020.
