Fujitsu Strengthens its Solutions Business Structure

Will reorganize and integrate its regional systems engineering companies

Fujitsu Limited

Tokyo, December 19, 2011

Fujitsu has announced that it will reorganize and integrate its regional systems engineering (SE) companies—the backbone of Fujitsu's solutions and systems integration business—as part of the Fujitsu Group's strategy of going on offense with structural reforms. Starting April 2012, it will create a new regional SE structure with a focus on the regions of eastern Japan, western Japan, and Kyushu.

The new companies for eastern Japan and western Japan, which will form the core of the new structure, are expected to achieve sales in the 100 billion yen range.

As a result of this reorganization and integration, the management resources and expertise that are currently dispersed across various regional SE companies will be consolidated within the Fujitsu Group in a way that leads to more effective use of resources and greater efficiencies in development investments. As the Fujitsu Group strengthens its cloud and other services businesses, and accelerates its globalization, this reorganization will bolster Fujitsu's competitiveness to expand its regional business in Japan, and will create an SE framework that can contribute even further to the development of Fujitsu Group customers.

Background and Objectives of the Reorganization and Consolidation

To quickly respond to changes in the market in recent years, such as globalization and the shift toward cloud computing, the Fujitsu Group positioned going on offense with structural reforms as one of its medium-term growth drivers. In its solutions business, it has implemented a variety of structural reforms, such as transforming its structure for the private-sector medium-sized business market, promoting its industrialized IT infrastructure(1) approach, and improving development efficiencies at its Numazu Software Development Cloud Center, which has implemented a cloud-based software development environment.

As part of these efforts, in its Group SE Division, which supports its Solutions Business, the Fujitsu Group endeavors to develop solutions that can be delivered as services, such as cloud services, and to make the development process more efficient by employing shared technologies. As a further step toward strengthening its overall solutions business, effective April 2012 the Fujitsu Group will reorganize and consolidate its regional SE companies into the new regional SE framework outlined below.
