Ren Zhengfei, the CEO and founder of Huawei Technologies has stated that the company has to scale back on its enterprise businesses and focus more on its strategic areas.
According to a GlobalTimes report, the senior official of the Chinese tech giant stated this to the staff through a recent internal email. This indicates that the company might further adjust its strategies to better face the challenges and competition. Ren said that “Because we are a company with limited power, we must do well and fine-tune the projects we are going to do. We must seize opportunities in the areas where we can, focus our energies, and do a good job in a down-to-earth manner. Only then can we truly find a better solution than others.”
The founder also discussed the company’s cloud computing businesses and even said that the company must learn from the likes of Amazon and Microsoft. As per the founder, Huawei must use its 30 years’ worth of network experience as a unique advantage in the cloud computing market and stand out in the industry. Although, he further added that “But Huawei can’t take the same path as Alibaba and Amazon, since we don’t have ‘endless money’ from the US stock market like them.”

According to Jiang Junmu, chief writer at C114.com, “Huawei’s enterprise is still limited in size and faces barriers to develop on a bigger scale, the points Ren mentioned are also some attempts the firm is going to make to try to break through the bottleneck.” Furthermore, Ren said that Huawei is currently discussing on “how to seize the opportunity of digitalization of government and enterprises, how to achieve better development in both, and how to achieve the world’s leading position.”
In other words, the founder believes that the company must “go all out” to build a large application ecosystem like Amazon to grow its Huawei Cloud business. It also has to downscale on its enterprise businesses and focus more on strengthening its software and application ecosystems that would be more beneficial to the brand at the moment.
