Business Challenges
  • A Multi-Cloud Architecture Needed for Medium- and Large-Sized Enterprises to Enable Complex and Diverse Services

    • Core services and data of enterprises are often deployed on-premises to ensure information security.

    • Enterprises proactively embrace public clouds to support their global business expansion, flexible resource scaling, and technology innovation.

    • A simple, effective method is needed to enable interconnection between core resources of legacy businesses and cloud-native applications on the public cloud.

  • Information Silos Resulting from Application and Service Deployment in Different Scenarios

    • Too many single-purpose applications create information silos, inhibiting data exchange and capability reuse between applications.

    • Point-to-point integration through highly-coupled interfaces prevents reuse of existing integration capabilities and resources, wasting resources and complicating O&M.

    • As economic globalization deepens, responsibilities of enterprises and their partners are more clearly defined, and isolated service systems hinder cross-domain collaborative innovation.

  • Difficulties in Transmitting Production OT Data to IT Systems or Big Data Platforms

    • Various industrial devices and data protocols are used. Most industrial standards are outdated, and their interfaces are not open.

    • Industrial experts cannot analyze and optimize manufacturing processes manually, hindering enterprises from bridging the gap between the physical and digital worlds.

    • Enterprises wish to establish connections between everything in their transition towards digital and smart manufacturing.

  • A New IT Architecture Required to Be Compatible with Legacy and Cloud-Native Applications

    • Legacy applications are centered on stability and processes, making it difficult to quickly respond to business requirements and hard to achieve short TTM.

    • Cloud-native applications fulfill service innovation requirements, but cannot substitute for core legacy applications in daily operations.

    • A new IT architecture is required to integrate core legacy applications with cloud-native applications, facilitating business stability and leveraging emerging technologies.

ROMA Connect – A Road to Digital Transformation of Enterprises

ROMA Connect connects enterprises from multiple dimensions to provide an open industry ecosystem.

Application Scenarios
  • Legacy and Cloud-Native Application Connection

  • Cross-Region and Cross-Cloud Business Integration

  • IT-OT Integration

  • Multi-Scenario Application and Heterogeneous Data Lake

Legacy and Cloud-Native Application Connection

Collaboration Between Legacy and Cloud Native Applications

In the Cloud 2.0 era, enterprises need to make full use of the innovative technologies provided by public cloud services. However, these innovative technologies cannot replace the existing core systems of enterprises within a short period of time. Enterprises urgently need a way to connect new and old applications, break the time and space limits of application development, and build an enterprise IT architecture that can evolve smoothly.

Advantages

Application Collaboration in the Hybrid Cloud

In contrast with traditional hybrid cloud solutions, ROMA Connect focuses on data and application interconnection, achieving collaboration between enterprise core assets and innovative applications in multiple regions and clouds.

Non-intrusive Reconstruction

ROMA Connect provides 30+ heterogeneous data sources and the Any to API capability to implement service-oriented transformation of legacy systems in an efficient and lightweight manner.

Core Asset and Experience Accumulation

ROMA Site can be deployed at any location and managed by ROMA Connect in a unified manner. The new and old application status, capability list, and integration relationship can be clearly displayed on the ROMA Connect console.

Cross-Region and Cross-Cloud Business Integration

IT Challenges of Corporate Groups

Corporate groups are distributed across different regions, which makes it difficult for them to share information. The multi-cloud strategy creates data silos between clouds, and service collaboration between partners poses challenges to network isolation and security. ROMA Connect and BCS enable multi-cloud data exchange to be trusted, monitored, and traceable.

Advantages

Cross-Regional Integration

Distributed message integration eliminates regional boundaries to achieve reliable business integration and information sharing.

Cross-Cloud Integration

Core services, such as SaaS, e-commerce, and mobile services can be seamlessly interconnected across clouds.

Cross-Network Integration

ROMA Site and ROMA Connect enable secure cross-network interconnection with partners' service systems, streamlining upstream and downstream sales, supply chains, and services.

Breaking Information Silos

Information silos in branches and subsidiaries are eliminated to achieve information sharing.

IT-OT Integration

IT-OT Integration

The combination of technological innovation and industry experience significantly changes industrial production and pushes enterprises to improve integration and competitiveness. IT-OT Integration has become a top priority in enterprise digitalization for success in the modern economy.

Advantages

Connecting the Physical and Digital Worlds Through Device Digitalization

Physical devices and digital assets are easily, securely, and stably associated.

Application and Data Integration Across the Cloud, On-Premises, and Partners

Production information can be easily aggregated into proprietary or third-party application systems, facilitating data collection and analysis and data-based action guiding.

Data Sharing and Visualized Data Management

Device data and supply, production, and sales data can be aggregated to a unified data platform through ROMA Connect, improving production security, predictability, and sustainability.

Multi-Scenario Application and Heterogeneous Data Lake

Data Integration, Exchange, Sharing, and Openness

Cloud and on-premises applications are isolated from each other, and their data is scattered across different systems. Data is difficult to synchronize and aggregate to maximize its value.

Advantages

Edge Computing Capability

ROMA Site can be deployed at any location to connect to ROMA Connect in the cloud. When data is collected, the security boundaries of enterprises are not violated.

Convergence of Various Heterogeneous Data Sources in Multiple Regions

ROMA Site can be deployed on either user IDCs or third-party public clouds to collect data from multiple service systems (such as ERP, IoT platform, and Internet HD maps) and heterogeneous data sources (such as MySQL, MongoDB, and RESTful API) in different regions.

Simple and Efficient Openness

ROMA Connect can directly open up various data tables as RESTful APIs for service systems to call. In contrast with traditional big data platforms, the data openness capability of ROMA Connect allows services to directly use data in the data lake.

Functions

Product Architecture

ROMA Connect provides comprehensive integration capabilities, such as the ABCDE integration base, to accumulate enterprise digital assets and drive digital transformation for enterprises.

Integration Asset Market

The integration asset market is an ecosystem community built on ROMA Connect. It allows release, subscription, and deployment of integrated assets, including applications, connectors, APIs, and service flows. It provides a secure, open environment for system integrators (SIs), industry SaaS providers, solution integrators, enterprises, and individual developers to share and transact, helping them enter the market and achieve profits by deploying each other's capabilities. HUAWEI CLOUD ROMA Connect joins hands with partners to accelerate digital and intelligent transformation of enterprises.

Success Stories
Fuzhou Digital China Exhibition Hall
The IOC and exhibition hall needed to be constructed synchronously. The project time frame was short, and the delivery pressure was heavy. HUAWEI CLOUD ROMA reduced the interconnection workload by 70% and shortened the project period to only one month.
