Fujitsu: SOA and XBRL Solution
Fujitsu adapts to a changing environment
with a move to Extensible Business Reporting Language (XBRL)
Fujitsu is a leading provider of ICT-based business solutions for the global marketplace. With approximately 170,000 employees supporting customers in 70 countries, Fujitsu combines a worldwide corps of systems and services experts with highly reliable computing and communications products and advanced microelectronics to deliver added value to customers.
The project was to revamp internal IT systems to make global operations more efficient in order to speed up management decisions and improve financial governance, creating an integrated financial reporting platform from a complex hierarchy of systems that span the globe.
The solution used SOA to allow the various business units to keep their existing back-office systems and processes, while using XBRL to automate and reduce errors. A centralised Business Activity Recorder was developed for data control and audit trails.
