l focus on the profile of Huawei Company, counterparty debates, as well as other news making technological management issues such as outsourcing, alliances and so on.
Huawei is a Chinese company that specializes in the technological, software and electronics industry. It is a company that is about two decades old which started as a distributor of Telcom equipment in the late 1980’s. By the early90’s it had not only been incorporated into the private companies club but also had been able to incent the CDMA and UTMS technologies that are currently being used in the wireless internet connectivity through hardware such as modems (Huawei, 2011). One can state that based on the happenings in and out of the company, the management was focusing on the setting of the base in the Chinese market. By the beginning of the new millennium, it was clear that the company was setting its foot in the global market with an estimated report of about 128 million US dollars in that year alone. In a couple of years thereafter the company expanded to other high-levels markets such as the European, African and the American markets through amalgamations, partnerships and other business arrangements with domestic companies.
One aspect of innovation that the company has employed in the global success is through the collaborations with local specialists of countries or regions that it has interest in. This guarantees customized services and product s for those particular markets hence ensuring that there is not only profits increase but also value addition according to Kan, (2011). Some of the continental companies that the firm has collaborated with include, Motorola, IBM, Intel and Microsoft which specialize in the manufacturing of computer hardware and software. Huawei has also collaborated with other electronic companies such as NEC and Phillips to form management alliances. Although this is a good step into globalization, there are concerns which are going to be addressed later.
