Huawei Mobile Services (HMS) announces the opening of DIGIX Lab in Singapore located at Changi Business Park. The lab is a space for developers to meet and get hands-on experience on the full range of HMS developer resources.
The DIGIX Lab services can also be accessed online, allowing developers across the region to make use of the resources virtually.
1+8+N Seamless AI Life
Under Huawei’s “1+8+N” Seamless AI Life strategy, the smartphone serves as One (1) centre, and Huawei’s ecosystem partners connect across Eight (8) supporting Huawei devices to create a fully-connected IoT environment consisting of Endless (N) services.
HMS supports this strategy by bridging innovative mobile apps and IoT products through Huawei’s hardware and software capabilities. Together with Huawei’s AI-powered system and cloud computing solution, it ultimately establishes an all-scenario AI living for Huawei end users.
Complementing the DIGIX Lab, Huawei also announced that it will continue to work closely with partners to bring more local in-demand apps onboard HUAWEI AppGallery to elevate its mobile ecosystem in Singapore.
Grab is the latest addition since end Jan 2021, following other top Singapore apps such as TraceTogether, ComfortDelGro, DBS, POSB, UOB, Channel NewsAsia (CNA), The Straits Times, Singtel’s Dash, and Lianhe Zaobao for smartphones. Government e-services app SingPass will soon be available in the early half of this year.
Huawei Mobile Services Ecosystem
In 2021, HMS will introduce three developer community programmes in APAC:
- Huawei Student Developers
- Huawei Developer Group
- Huawei Developer Experts
A wider range of Huawei Developer Trainings and HUAWEI Developer Certifications will also be put in place, equipping regional tech talents and enthusiasts with the necessary tools to excel in the mobile development industry.
In Singapore, Huawei will partner SkillsFuture Singapore (SSG) and provide online training courses as well as certificates for local tech talents to learn android app development and master HMS Core capabilities. Huawei is also in talks with Singapore Gaming Association (SGGA) to form a strategic partnership in developing the local mobile gaming industry.
Additionally, HMS has recently launched HUAWEI Developers app, an official open platform for Huawei developers to manage their apps’ backend system. The app also provides access to the latest developer activities and where users can receive event notifications on the go.
Moving forward, HMS will continue its investment in the technological capabilities and provide localised operational support to developers to foster mobile innovation in an evolving landscape.
