Huawei Cloud: Empowering travel companies in the digital age

Huawei Cloud: Empowering Travel Companies in the Digital Age

In this interview, Matteo Conte, Senior Sales Manager Huawei Cloud, from Huawei Cloud discusses the unique challenges and opportunities travel companies face in the cloud era. We explore the biggest mistakes companies make, the evolving landscape of travel technology in Spain, and how Huawei Cloud is empowering businesses for success.

Q: What's the biggest cloud strategy mistake travel companies make?

A: Many lack a scalable and flexible architecture from the start. This leads to data silos and hinders agility. A cloud-native approach that enables automation and easy integration is crucial.

Q: What unique cloud needs to travel companies have?

A: Travel companies require exceptional data management – from reservations to real-time logistics – often with high seasonal workloads. Cloud solutions with high availability, geographic resilience, and dynamic cost optimization are essential.

Q: Do some travel companies still see technology as a cost center?

A: Yes, some view technology as a short-term cost, not a strategic investment. This overlooks long-term gains like cost optimization through automation, data-driven personalization, and innovation for new revenue streams.

Q: How can travel companies protect themselves from data breaches?

A: Robust security policies, compliance with GDPR, and data encryption are key. Zero-trust architecture and managed security solutions in the cloud further strengthen data protection.

Q: Why is Spain a leader in travel technology?

A: Spain's thriving tourism sector combined with its emerging tech ecosystem fosters innovation. Collaboration between startups, universities, and the public sector fuels the development of advanced travel tech solutions.

Q: How will Spain's travel technology scene evolve?

A: Spain is likely to solidify its leadership. Expect consistent adoption of AI, machine learning, and natural language processing to personalize travel experiences and optimize operations.

Q: Can you tell us about Huawei Cloud's work with Spanish travel companies?

A: We collaborate with a variety of travel companies – from startups to large tour operators – implementing secure, scalable cloud infrastructures that support everything from reservations to data analytics.

Q: What inspired Huawei Cloud's sponsorship of CON-X 2024?

A: Huawei Cloud is committed to promoting innovation across industries. By sponsoring CON-X 2024, we showcase how our cloud solutions empower travel companies for digital transformation and growth.
