Fujitsu Cited as a Strong Performer by Independent Research Firm in Global IT Infrastructure Outsourcing Report, Q1 2011

Fujitsu America Inc.

SUNNYVALE, CA -- (Marketwire), April 04, 2011

Fujitsu was among the select companies that Forrester Research, Inc. invited to participate in its March 2011 The Forrester WaveTM: Global IT Infrastructure Outsourcing, Q1 2011 report. In this evaluation, Fujitsu was cited as a Strong Performer in IT Infrastructure Outsourcing. 

Forrester conducted vendor evaluations for 19 participating suppliers and interviewed 86 client references for the 36-criteria report on global IT infrastructure management vendors. Organisations are divided into four categories -- Leader, Strong Performer, Contender and Risky Bet -- and also rated by market presence. 

In its report Forrester commented that Fujitsu has a "solid overall market presence, as well as strong capabilities in consulting." In addition the report also stated that, "its offering is also characterised by a strong global delivery model and solid distribution of its client base." 

One of the key overall trends which Forrester observed within this report was the importance of Cloud-based infrastructure services. The report states that, "Cloud services like infrastructure-as-a-service are among the most discussed services in the market, but most of the current activity entails private cloud solutions dedicated for single clients." Furthermore, Cloud strategies provide "leapfrog opportunities" for IT infrastructure management suppliers. 

Barry Carter, Executive Vice President, Infrastructure Services at Fujitsu America, says, "There's no doubt that the IT outsourcing infrastructure market is a competitive but exciting place to be at the moment. Forrester cites a forecasted 7.1% growth of the IT infrastructure operations market in 2011 and I am confident that Cloud will play a major part in that. Cloud is genuinely coming to fruition this year and the importance we feel which Forrester also places on Cloud infrastructure services in this report is most welcome. This is a great area of focus for Fujitsu and globally we are investing $1.2 billion into Cloud services." 

The report makes specific reference to Fujitsu's Cloud capabilities, stating that it has, "...a promising position regarding infrastructure-as-a-service offerings... [and] strength across a wide range of service categories including desktop, deskside, help desk, and data centre management, among others." 

Carter continues, "We believe our placing within the Strong Performers category is testament to the investment and strategic direction of the company. The IT infrastructure outsourcing market is wide open and there is space for innovative, dynamic companies to achieve significant growth."
