HarmonyOS Connect Partner Summit, Huawei officially announced the HarmonyOS Connect brand upgrade plan to help partners make good products, sell good products, and operate good products.
“HarmonyOS is a smart terminal operating system developed by Huawei for the era of Internet of Everything. It provides a unified language for the intelligence, interconnection, and collaboration of different devices.” said Yang Haisong, vice president of Huawei’s consumer business AI and smart full-scenario business unit. To bring consumers a simple, smooth, continuous, safe and reliable full-scene interactive experience, we have fully upgraded the two major brands of’HUAWEI HiLink’ and’Powered by HarmonyOS’ to’HarmonyOS Connect’ for 1+8+N ecological partners Hardware products have achieved technical certification and brand integration, and HarmonyOS capabilities are used as the base of the full-scenario smart ecology, so that HarmonyOS Connect products can naturally become part of the HarmonyOS hyper terminal, bringing consumers a new cross-terminal experience.”
Yang Haisong said, “Doing a good product, selling a good product, and operating a good product” is the new value that the newly upgraded HarmonyOS Connect brings to partners.
The first is to make a good product and join the HarmonyOS Connect ecosystem. The smart hardware products of partners can be based on HarmonyOS to achieve minimal distribution network, universal card, minimal interaction, hardware mutual assistance and other capabilities . Users can connect their smart devices to the Internet at the touch of a mobile phone, and they can be controlled at any time without installing an App. This effectively solves the problem of low utilization of device smart features and realizes fast and low-cost connection to users.
Not only that, based on HarmonyOS, devices separated from each other between cooperating brand manufacturers can combine the software and hardware capabilities of different devices according to the different needs of consumers and different scenarios, and merge them into “super terminals” to achieve differentiated competition . For example, in the home scene, an air conditioner based on HarmonyOS is linked with a smart watch to form a super terminal, which automatically adjusts the temperature and wind speed according to your heart rate data during exercise.
At the same time, the newly upgraded full life cycle solutions and service platform help partners to develop quickly and at low cost, shortening the development cycle from the original 56 days to 7 days. The new HarmonyOS Connect technology certification platform allows partners to obtain technical certification certificates for ecological products as soon as one week, speeding up the product launch time.
The second is to sell good products. Huawei will open up the whole scene through more than 60,000 offline retail and service outlets, online Huawei mall (Vmall) and Huawei’s official flagship store and other self-owned retail locations, as well as more than 15,000 tripartite sales channels. Multi-path sales channels provide comprehensive traffic support to partners and help partners sell good products . According to Yang Haisong, there are currently many HarmonyOS Connect ecological products that have achieved a double harvest of sales and reputation through the Huawei sales system. Take Midea’s steaming and grilling oven as an example. It reached the public test target on the first day of the Vmall public test, with a 100% favorable rate.
For its third operating product, Huawei will fully drive the activity of partner products through high-frequency and just-needed equipment scene linkage and intelligent distribution of HarmonyOS atomic services, and provide end-to-end service platform one-stop operation services to help partners High-efficiency operations. At the same time, Huawei will open its operating system and provide a data operating platform to visualize the effects of partner products and services, and bring better user conversion efficiency.
The HarmonyOS Connect brand upgrade plan was officially launched on May 18, and the brand switching will be completed on August 18. Eligible hardware vendors, solution vendors, and channel vendors can apply to join to jointly build the HarmonyOS Connect ecosystem. Not only that, Huawei has also created an exclusive E2E cooperative business online service platform for partners. The platform provides one-stop service capabilities from registration, development/certification, and market planning to help partners complete product launches efficiently and at low cost.
