Huawei has launched its new CloudApp Platform to help users quickly develop new apps and integrate them onto the platform using application program interfaces (APIs).
The platform is based on Huawei’s newly announced All-Cloud Network architecture, which is comprised of three features: ubiquitous connections, which connects data and applications in campus, branch, and Internet of Things (IoT) scenarios; an open cloud platform providing open APIs for interconnections with network devices and apps; and a social technology industry application, which provides big data analytics for applications and services to be shared between enterprises and users.
The Huawei CloupApp Platform can be installed on mobile devices. By integrating with system partners and application partners, the platform provides unified scheduling and integration of various applications and data.
For example, one of the first use cases that Huawei is highlighting with this release focuses on the education industry. It has rolled out multiple apps for the platform around education including school management, student resource management, and online behavior management.
Some of the capabilities include maps that can be used to check the distribution of people in schools in different areas, stats on students entering and leaving the school, and current and past attendances of individual students. Additionally, policies can be implemented to separate the roles of students, teachers, and visitors.
In the future, Huawei expects to expand the number of uses cases of its CloudApp platform to expand into areas like campus networks, enterprise branches, data centers, and IoT. Huawei is teaming with industry partners to build more mobile apps in the education, sales, and finance industries.
