Fujitsu World Tour 2015: Technology and Service Innovation at a City Near You
Fujitsu takes to the road again with its popular Fujitsu World Tour roadshow, under the banner ‘Human Centric Innovation: Experience the Hyper-Connected World’. With more than 10,000 attendees expected across 19 locations in spring/summer 2015, Fujitsu World Tour gives delegates a unique opportunity to find out how Fujitsu helps organizations deploy leading-edge technologies and solutions for business benefit. The events are delivered by national and global experts who interact through presentations, workshops, demonstrations and face-to-face meetings.
Fujitsu World Tour 2015 showcases the latest trends in data center technology, mobility, cloud, big data, and social media and introduces Fujitsu’s new value chain of end-to-end services, solutions and products. The latest technological Innovations will be presented, such as iris authentication and the Haptic Sensory Tablet that provides sensory input when an on-screen image is touched, for example, depending on the slipperiness or roughness of the object. For the second year in succession, Fujitsu Laboratories, the global network of research facilities that forms the central pillar of the Fujitsu Group's R&D, will also join the roadshow in most locations, bringing demonstrations of future-facing solutions for human-centric innovation to customer’s doorsteps.
Each event is designed as a forum where customers can discuss business challenges, gain inspiration on the topic of Human Centric Innovation in a Hyper-Connected World and see demonstrations of practical solutions for their ICT headaches. As customers have commented on previous events: “Fujitsu World Tour is not only about product talk, but incorporates the vision, the values and the direction that Fujitsu and the world are heading.”
Fujitsu recognizes that across industries and countries, technology plays an increasingly crucial role in everyday life. With the World Tour, Fujitsu is aiming to empower its customers by demonstrating how to leverage the unprecedented amount of ICT power at their fingertips. Dr. Joseph Reger, Chief Technology Officer for the EMEIA region at Fujitsu, says: “Today's hyper-connected world is dramatically changing the way we live and work: Technology is embedded in every aspect of business and society, and almost everything can be networked, resulting in huge quantities of data. Fujitsu aims to empower people with the intelligence and information to embrace this transformation, with the help of ICT.”
The highlight of Fujitsu Laboratories’ participation is the Madrid event on June 9, 2015. This includes the annual Fujitsu Innovation Gathering, Fujitsu Laboratories’ main European event. The Fujitsu World Tour will be Fujitsu’s biggest-ever roadshow in Spain, and is targeted at CTOs, delegates from the government and the public sector, academia and research organizations, as well as the wider business community.
Dr Adel Rouz, Executive Vice President of Fujitsu Laboratories of Europe, commented: “Fujitsu Laboratories already actively cooperates with Spanish academic institutions, government organizations and businesses. This is an important opportunity to demonstrate how innovation can be applied to solve real-world problems, focusing particularly on the role played by Big Data in our evolving society, and how we can apply our analytics expertise to provide a safer and more secure environment. Fujitsu Laboratories has also launched the Fujitsu Linked Open Data Challenge for Spain 2015 – a competition to encourage new concepts and applications, with five awards to be announced at the event .”
