Lenovo's smartphone business continues to gain new ground globally with the Motorola brand as it challenges industry convention and defines a new era of mobile innovation. Over the last year, Motorola has launched significant new products, including moto z3, the first 5G enabled smartphone when paired with the new 5G moto mod, and continues to ramp up its branding efforts worldwide.
We remain committed to our vision of being the most trusted data center partner for our customers' digital transformation. Ranked #1 in customer satisfaction and x86 reliability, Lenovo's data center portfolio spans servers, storage, converged and hyperconverged, networking, hyperscale, software and services. Fueled by continued investments in people and technology, we recently introduced the most comprehensive data center portfolio in our history, including the new ThinkSystem and ThinkAgile.
As part of our innovation focus, this business group aims at developing new technologies through global technology incubation and investments, strengthens the strategy of Smart Internet and "AI + Industry", focuses investing in the five key technological directions of Smart Internet value chain: IoT + Edge Computing + Cloud + Big Data + Artificial Intelligence, and drives it to integrate deeply with vertical industries and Lenovo ecosystems.
