To help electric power companies in South Africa accelerate their digital transformation, Huawei and T-systems South Africa launched the Electric Power Industry Cloud solution offering on-demand cloud services at the Summit.
As an extension of the Open Telekom Cloud, this solution provides pay-as-you-use industrial applications to greatly lower the thresholds of enterprises’ deployment of digital services.

The joint Electric Power Industry Cloud solution will bring a new innovative experience to the local electric power market and help customers solve challenges often faced during the deployment of new digital services, such as insufficient investment and lack of skills and ICT infrastructure. Moreover, this solution can free customers from worrying about business cases and enable customers to use affordable digital services.“
