Huawei’s negotiations for selling x86 server business progressing smoothly
At the Huawei Connect 2021 event, the rotating chairman Eric Xu hints about selling its x86 server business. New reports on this matter reveal that the negotiation progress is going smoothly.
According to Bloomberg News, it’s getting more difficult for Huawei to secure its x86 server business from the giants like Intel Corp after imposing a ban by the US. Thereby, the firm hastened the selling process.
The reports further informed that various potential buyers from the government and the private division appeared in recent months. However, the Chinese firm plans to contract a conglomerate with at least one government-backed buyer to sell its x86 server business.
Yet, there isn’t any information about the trading price for the x86 server division, but it’ll be billions for sure. Furthermore, other Chinese enterprises such as Henan Information, Huaqin Technology, and a state-owned enterprise in Zhengzhou are likely to be the next sharers.
Still, it’s unclear whether the companies are bidding separately or as part of the same consortium. Besides, Huawei has declined to comment on this matter, but its server business is certainly facing hardship. Although it isn’t willing to give up the server market, there is no way it can produce Intel architecture-based chips.
Last year, the US administration blacklisted Huawei and cuts its supply chains. Afterward, it becomes difficult for US-based firms such as Intel and AMD to supply their products to Huawei. However, Huawei’s MateBook series rely on AMD and Intel chips but the server field is unknown.
Later in April 2021, this Shenzhen-based company also introduced its FusionServer Pro V6 intelligent servers working on third-generation Intel Xeon Scalable processors. Despite this action, the company presently isn’t able to bring chips like Intel to support its high-end MateBooks.
On this matter, the media also previous reports about the tenses business relations between Huawei and Intel which was later rumored to be getting better. Anyway, the fact is Huawei’s chip production business has a long way to cover.
UFIDA reacts to Huawei MetaERP management system
Last week, Huawei Founder, Ren Zhengfei revealed that Huawei has developed its own MetaERP management system. On this, a leading Chinese EPR company, UFIDA reacted to Huawei MetaERP.
UFIDA said that the market has over-interpreted the MetaERP from Huawei. From an industry perspective, it will take at least three to five years for ERP products to mature.
From the perspective of the current competitive landscape, Huawei’s own products are mostly used internally by the company. Whether they can be replicated and promoted in batches in the future has a lot to do with it. There could be some factors that may affect the entire scenario.
UFIDA said that Huawei’s self-developed ERP has little impact because ERP is not a simple tool software. However, it involves a whole set of links such as the design process, experience extraction, and implementation delivery.
Whether it is a Chinese or foreign ERP company, it takes decades of development to form a certain market size. Huawei is not the first company in China to enter ERP, which fully demonstrates the market value of ERP.
Previously, Ren Zhengfei revealed in his speech that in April this year, Huawei’s MetaERP will take an oath, completely using its own operating system, database, compiler, and language to make its own management system MetaERP software.
MetaERP has also experienced the actual application test of various departments of the company around the world and passed the annual settlement test of the company’s general ledger use.
Many design tools are also released to the public on Huawei Cloud, gradually overcoming the embarrassment of supply interruption.
We don’t know much about UFIDA’s viewports but developing a management tool that’s helpful to Huawei itself is an important task to deliver. As the company doesn’t need to rely on other companies to give this service and save money. Huawei has not announced the commercial use of such software for third-party businesses.
Don’t worry guys, Huawei is not taking your work.
