China's Huawei Technologies said on Thursday it was replacing internal software management systems it once sourced from US vendors with its own in-house version, hailing the move as a victory over US restrictions that once threatened its survival, Economic Times reports.

Huawei held an internal ceremony to celebrate the switch to its own 'MetaERP' (enterprise resource planning system) in Dongguan, south China on Thursday, attended by the Huawei's rotating Chairperson Meng Wanzhou, the daughter of the company's founder Ren Zhengfei, the news site adds, citing a report by Reuters.

ERP software is used by companies to manage key business operations ranging from accounting to supply chain management, the article explains. According to the article, the new software provides a potential new business line for the company which has been expanding into areas in a bid to survive under US pressure.
