Fujitsu to Strengthen Organization for Network Business

Fujitsu Limited

Tokyo, May 22, 2015

Fujitsu today announced that it will strengthen the organization of its network business in order to make further advances in network virtualization, provide global, general-purpose products that take maximum advantage of advanced technologies, and achieve an expansion of its services business.

Background and Future Direction

The market environment for the network business is undergoing a major transformation as competition intensifies with entrants from industries beyond the industry's conventional boundaries, and as the industry's business model continues to transition from a focus on hardware to a focus on services, in the context of advancing network virtualization technologies. In this environment, there is a desire for the provision of comprehensive services, including operational and business-support services as well as integration services.

To address these changes in the market environment, Fujitsu is changing its business organization, which had been organized by product, to a new structure organized by function, in order to increase the speed of further advances in network virtualization, the provision of global, general-purpose products that take maximum advantage of advanced technologies, and the creation of new services that meet the wide variety of needs of network users for the emerging IoT(1) era. This reorganization will integrate the technologies and expertise Fujitsu has cultivated to date, thereby improving productivity and capital expenditure efficiency, to benefit customers and enhance Fujitsu's global competitiveness.
