Huawei: Shaping Smarter, Greener Finance Together

SINGAPORE, July 21, 2022 /PRNewswire/ — July 20, the three-day Huawei Intelligent Finance Summit 2022 officially begins at Sands Expo and Convention Centre. Under the theme of “Shaping Smarter, Greener Finance”, the summit is bringing together financial industry leading figures, KOLs, academic experts, and innovative practitioners from more than 30 countries around the world to discuss the future development of the financial industry, exploring how to build smarter and greener finance together.

Huawei proposed three core elements for gaining competitiveness in the financial industry, upon the arrival of the super digitalization era

With the fully connected intelligent world on its way, both the economy and society are transforming towards two major trends of digitalization and sustainable development. In face of changing financial service scenarios and business models in the digital era, the financial industry is met with a growing demand for rapid business innovation and ultimate customer experience, which further speeds up its pace of transformation. To cope with the complex and dynamic nature of digital transformation, it is necessary for the financial industry to rebuild its core competitiveness amidst the digital era in order to realize the vision of intelligent finance.

“Better connections, stronger intelligence, and more scenarios are the key to building competitiveness of digital finance,” Ryan Ding, President of the Huawei Enterprise BG, pointed out, “Following the concept of co-creation, sharing, and win-win, we are working with our customers and partners in finding a way towards Shaping Smarter, Greener Finance, Creating New Value Together.”

Huawei announced three strategic initiatives, advancing the digitalization of the financial industry in the new era.

Jason Cao, CEO of Huawei Global Digital Finance said in his speech, “Technology, especially the connection and intelligence, continues to drive the development of the financial industry. In 2022, we have officially entered into the ZFLOPS era for AI computing power. With the development of AI, we will embrace super-personalization. By 2025, more than 100 billion physical connections will lead to financial services for ‘things’. In the future, smart contract will enable intelligent decision-making possible everywhere. New service and product models will emerge one after another. However, end-to-end user experience, real-time processing of massive data, and O&M and management of more complex networks and multi clouds will all become challenges for the financial industry. We are facing opportunities as well as challenges. ”

Jason Cao, CEO of Huawei Global Digital Finance

To build smarter and greener finance based on better connections, stronger intelligence, and more scenarios, Huawei announced three strategic initiatives for the financial sector during the summit.

  1. Smarter: smarter customer engagement solutions to improve digital experience; data and intelligent converged platform to build real-time data capabilities; hybrid multi-cloud architecture to make cross-cloud management easier and services more agile.
  2. Greener: autonomous digital infrastructure to help financial institutions achieve high efficiency, availability, and performance and facilitate collaboration of multi-technology, heterogeneous technology, and hybrid multi-cloud.
  3. Together: Build a global ecosystem cooperation platform and put forward three upgraded initiatives for the Financial Partner Go Global Program 2.0 (FPGGP): develop more solution partners; expand FPGGP to global consulting and service partners; develop local sales and service partners for providing FPGGP solutions locally.

Working with global clients and partners, shaping smarter and greener finance

During the summit, Huawei and DBS announced the establishment of the Innovation Showcase at DBS Newton Green.

Huawei also signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) with OCBC Bank to bolster the bank’s digital transformation in Southeast Asia and the Greater Bay Area in three key initiatives: Green Branch and Buildings with Smart IoT; Data Science and Artificial Intelligence (AI) Innovation and Cloud Adoption Acceleration.

Meanwhile, Huawei released the Digital Banking 2.0 Solution leveraging Temenos open platform. The solution supports the quick launch of digital banks and helps larger banks accelerate their modernization in the cloud. This greatly improves the rollout efficiency and customer satisfaction.

In the coming days, Huawei will sign a number of cooperation agreements with several financial institutions, and unveil a wide variety of products and solutions jointly created with partners, covering various business scenarios.

La Reach Alliance de l’Université de Toronto étend son réseau en s’associant à des établissements universitaires en Afrique, en Asie et en Australie

— L’initiative mondiale rassemble des chercheurs et des praticiens de toutes les disciplines et du monde entier pour accélérer la réalisation des objectifs de développement durable des Nations unies —

TORONTO, 20 juillet 2022/PRNewswire/ — La Reach Alliance annonce des partenariats avec quatre universités de premier plan, dont l’Université de Cape Town (Afrique du Sud), l’Université Ashesi (Ghana), l’Université de gestion de Singapour (Singapour) et l’Université de Melbourne (Australie). L’Alliance passe ainsi de quatre à huit grandes universités mondiales, les premiers partenaires étant l’Université de Toronto (Canada), le Tecnológico de Monterrey (Mexique), l’University College London (Royaume-Uni) et l’Université d’Oxford (Royaume-Uni).

Fondée à la Munk School of Global Affairs & Public Policy de l’Université de Toronto, en partenariat avec le Mastercard Center for Inclusive Growth , la Reach Alliance est une initiative mondiale de recherche et de leadership qui étudie comment les interventions essentielles atteignent les personnes les plus difficiles à atteindre. L’Alliance s’associe ensuite à des organisations intersectorielles pour traduire en actions concrètes les résultats de la recherche.

« Le travail de la Reach Alliance ne peut être réalisé qu’en renforçant les partenariats internationaux pour atteindre une portée mondiale », déclare Marin MacLeod, directeur exécutif de la Reach Alliance.

Le professeur Mamokgethi Phakeng, vice-chancelier de l’université du Cap, commente : « La Reach Alliance est un concept brillant qui s’aligne étroitement sur la mission de l’université : veiller à ce que notre recherche réponde aux besoins des communautés les plus marginalisées d’Afrique, à ce qu’elle ait un impact réel et à ce que nous formions les leaders de demain qui s’engagent pour la justice sociale. »

Sentiments partagés par le recteur de l’université d’Ashesi, le professeur Angela Owusu-Ansah : « L’engagement des étudiants dans la recherche sur les expériences vécues par les groupes marginalisés est susceptible d’amplifier la pensée éthique, entrepreneuriale et critique des étudiants, leur souci des autres et le courage d’agir pour le changement. »

L’extension aux universités d’Afrique, d’Asie et d’Australie permettra d’élargir la portée et la profondeur de la recherche Reach, d’améliorer l’expérience des étudiants chercheurs et des professeurs et d’accélérer la production de connaissances exploitables sur certains des problèmes de développement les plus complexes au monde.

« La Reach Alliance permet à un réseau mondial d’universités partenaires de collaborer à la recherche et de développer des solutions interdisciplinaires », déclare le professeur Elvin Lim, doyen du College of Integrative Studies de la Singapore Management University. « Grâce à la recherche des étudiants et au mentorat des professeurs tirés de l’Alliance, nous visons à approfondir notre engagement avec la ville et à créer un impact significatif pour les communautés du monde entier. »

Le professeur Adrian Little, Pro Vice-Chancelier (International) de l’Université de Melbourne, souligne que la mission sociale de l’université est une raison essentielle pour rejoindre l’Alliance : « En nous engageant dans la Reach Alliance, nous pouvons nous attaquer à des problèmes en Australie et dans la région Asie-Pacifique au sens large, en collaboration avec un groupe exceptionnel d’universités partenaires. »

À ce jour, la Reach Alliance a publié 30  études de cas  couvrant 20 pays. Les résultats de la recherche ont permis d’informer les praticiens et les décideurs politiques, d’accélérer la réalisation des objectifs de développement durable et de former la prochaine génération de leaders mondiaux. Les résultats de la Reach Alliance ont été  publiés  dans des publications de premier plan, telles que The Lancet, Stanford Social Innovation Review et le Bulletin de l’OMS.

« Nous sommes ravis d’accueillir ces universités de premier plan au sein de l’Alliance et de bénéficier de leurs perspectives uniques et diverses. Leurs professeurs et leurs étudiants contribueront énormément à notre réseau mondial d’experts sur la manière d’atteindre les personnes les plus difficiles à atteindre », déclare MacLeod.

TORONTO, July 20, 2022 /PRNewswire/ — The Reach Alliance announces partnerships with four leading universities, including the University of Cape Town (South Africa), Ashesi University (Ghana), Singapore Management University (Singapore) and the University of Melbourne (Australia).

Sentiments shared by Ashesi University’s Provost, Professor Angela Owusu-Ansah, “engaging students in research of the lived experiences of marginalized groups is likely to amplify students’ ethical, entrepreneurial, and critical thinking; their concern for others and the courage to act for change.”

Scaling to universities in Africa, Asia and Australia will expand the scope and depth of Reach research, enhance the student researcher and faculty experience and accelerate production of actionable insights about some of the world’s most complex development issues.

“The Reach Alliance enables a global network of partner universities to collaborate on research and develop interdisciplinary solutions”, says Professor Elvin Lim, Dean, College of Integrative Studies, Singapore Management University. “Through student research and faculty mentorship drawn from the Alliance, we aim to deepen our engagement with the city and to create meaningful impact for communities around the world.”

Professor Adrian Little, Pro Vice Chancellor (International), University of Melbourne highlights the university’s social mission as a key reason for joining the Alliance, “by engaging with the Reach Alliance, we can tackle problems within Australia and in the wider Asia-Pacific region in collaboration with an outstanding group of university partners.”
