Huawei will make up to $1 billion available to support developers under its new Development Enabler Plan, which is focused on building an open ICT developer ecosystem.
At the vendor's first Huawei Developers Congress (HDC), the company announced it will make the investment to implement its new plan over the next five years.
As part of the process, Huawei plans to build a developer enabler platform and forge business partnerships with its developers.
The platform will be called eSDK, and will be designed to help developers accelerate technological information. It will be based around the LEADS concept - Lab-as-a-Service, end-to-end, agile, dedicated and social.
Developers contribute to Huawei's ecosystem in technology areas including cloud computing, big data, the IoT, mobile broadband, SDN and BYOD, commented Huawei president of products and solutions Ryan Ding.
“Huawei has focused on ICT infrastructure, opened up its innovative and leading ICT solutions to developers, and built an open environment and enablement platform for the carrier and enterprise markets,” he said.
During the event Huawei shared details of previous success stories with developer partners, such as those designing open cloud services based on the company's Enterprise Cloud. The company also signed co-operation agreements with partners such as Microsoft and Richfit.
