Hon. Frederick Ngobi Gume, the State Minister for Cooperatives noted that, Huawei Cloud is timely since it has come at a time when the government is in the digitalization process.

“I have realized that Huawei Cloud will reduce on the production cost of goods and services because business owners will subscribe and only be pay for what they have used.”

Kin Kariisa , the CEO of Next Media Group noted that Huawei Cloud technology has helped them a lot in the media industry through storing their large files at a cheaper rate.

“Without Cloud technology, streaming solutions like Afro mobile cannot be possible because it would require us to establish large server rooms (rooms to store data), like from Next Media Park up to here at Sheraton.”

The launch the Cloud program was announced during the Huawei Cloud Enterprise Innovation and SME Summit which was held under a theme “Building SMEs to innovate and grow”
