On the first APAC Huawei Developer Day (AHDD) held in Singapore, Huawei shared its vision of building an open ecosystem. The ecosystem was shown together with over 150 industry partners in the APAC region. Huawei’s open ecosystem is a scenario where devices connect seamless using its own technologies like Huawei Mobile service, Huawei devices, 5G networks, and AI-powered apps.
With their strong growth in the global market (being the second-largest smartphone vendor in World), Huawei consumer group sees a significant rise in their PC, smart audio and wearable business.
“It is timely for us to introduce the HUAWEI Ecosystem as we have now evolved to a mature phase after 30 years in the industry. The HUAWEI Ecosystem is rooted in Huawei Mobile Services and aligned with our ‘1+8+N’ strategy. It helps our partners to expedite the digital innovation by integrating their businesses onto our platform.” said Zhang Ping’an, President, Huawei Consumer Cloud Service.
HUAWEI Ecosystem’s ‘1+8+N’ approach that links one smartphone to eight supported devices and endless IoT services.
Under the ‘1+8+N’ strategy, the smartphone serves as One (1) center, and HUAWEI’s Ecosystem partners connect across Eight (8) supporting devices to create a fully-connected IoT environment consisting of Endless (N) services.
“In the HUAWEI Ecosystem, Huawei Mobile Services is the coordination and management center between devices, apps, and end-users that maximizes user experience. Together with HUAWEI’s 5G network, AI-powered system and cloud computing solution, we strive to establish a seamless AI living for all,” continued Zhang Ping’an.
Huawei Mobile Services continues to grow strong in the global markets.
The HUAWEI Ecosystem is set to continue strengthening Huawei Mobile Services’ footprint in the global markets. It serves more than 570 million global users in over 170 countries to date. As of 2019 Q3, HMS has achieved 390 million global monthly active users on HUAWEI AppGallery, with more than 180 billion total app downloads within a year since it started the global service in 2018.
Currently, there are also over 1.07 million global developers registered with HMS, with more than 50,000 apps already integrated into HMS Core, which helps to create a version of an app that is compatible with all HUAWEI devices.
In APAC markets, HMS currently provides a variety of services such as HUAWEI ID, Mobile Cloud, HUAWEI AppGallery, Themes, HUAWEI Music and HUAWEI Assistant.
“To keep up the momentum, plans are already in place to provide more comprehensive services for the partners. More resources will be opened to the APAC markets, to help app developers and content providers to distribute their services globally,” said Zhang Ping’an.
Some of the HMS’ services available in APAC markets are:
Huawei Mobile Services (HMS) today held its first APAC HUAWEI Developer Day (AHDD) in Singapore, together with over 150 of its industry partners from all over the APAC region.
To facilitate the growth of its smart ecosystem, HMS has opened up its chipset-device-cloud abilities to global developers via the HUAWEI Developer website. This platform grants developers full access to developer services including HMS Core, HMS Capabilities, and HMS Connect.
“HUAWEI’s Chipset-Device-Cloud synergy combines the software and hardware integration tools for developers to efficiently connect their services into our ecosystem. the HMS consists of all-scenario capabilities to support an app from development and testing to promotion and monetization. In our ecosystem, the developer only needs to integrate their app once, then distribute the service across HUAWEI smart devices and meet the global users. We hope developers could focus on innovation and accelerate the app development process by leveraging on our open capabilities,” said Zhang Ping’an.
HMS Core is a collection of software development frameworks that enable developers to create a version of the app that is compatible with HUAWEI devices. These kits shorten the app development process at a lower cost.
As announced during the event, a total of 24 HMS Core kits, 55 services, and 997 APIs will be available in APAC markets by 2020. Among the new HMS Core services are Map Kit, Location Kit, Awareness Kit, Scan Kit, Quick App and more, in response to various development scenarios.
HMS Core also covers value-added functions for user expansion and service monetization. For example, the newly-opened Analytics Kit could generate key data insights into a particular app. From there, the app owner can formulate their application optimization. Covering 150 countries in 40 languages, HUAWEI Map Kit supports real-time road condition monitoring and easy customization of the map.
HUAWEI Ability Gallery, a unified platform for integrating and distributing services, aggregates traffics across platforms leveraging on the AI-powered distribution system. Once integrated into HUAWEI Ability Gallery, the service can be distributed through multiple touchpoints on HUAWEI devices such as HUAWEI Assistant, HUAWEI Browser, HUAWEI HiVoice.
At present, more than 5,000 third-party services have connected to HUAWEI Ability Gallery in the China market, covering 117 apps in 14 categories. This feature will be launched globally in December 2019.
As announced earlier, a total of USD 1 billion has been invested in the HUAWEI Shining-Star Program to support mobile app developers all around the world. Shining-Star Program will provide training, innovation supports, and marketing resources to apps and services relating to AI, AR/VR, and IoT. Developers who are eligible for the programme will receive incentive supports for development innovation, user growth, marketing, and other aspects.
HUAWEI Developer Day (HDD) will be held in different cities across the region. The HDD covers technical workshops, tech-trend analysis, case studies and the latest industry insights to empower developers with HUAWEI’s open capabilities.
Additionally, the DigiX Lab in Singapore is scheduled to be launched in early 2020. This laboratory is equipped with HMS Core, AR, VR, AI, CameraKit, HUAWEI Ability Gallery and other open capabilities for mobile app developers to test their services remotely.
There are also student incubation programs such as DigiX Geek Contest, AI internship and campus ambassador to be rolled out under the Shining-Star initiative. The company aims to encourage innovation among young developers to continuously develop the HUAWEI Ecosystem.
“Huawei Mobile Services is committed to strengthening our partnerships with the industry players to build a fully-connected future. We will continue to foster and support the innovation of mobile app developers and bring high-quality content to our users,” said Zhang Ping’an.
