Duncan Tait, SEVP and Head of EMEIA and Americas region at Fujitsu, says: “Digital disruption is changing our world. New digital technologies and services based on the cloud, big data, mobile services and the Internet of Things are turning market dynamics on their heads and creating entirely new customer requirements. Fujitsu is responding by partnering with our customers to co-create a new digital world. At Fujitsu Forum we will provide powerful demonstrations of how this co-creation approach is enabling Fujitsu customers to take advantage of disruptive market forces to gain a true competitive advantage. With digitalization driving sweeping change across all elements of business, the Fujitsu approach of co-creation is enabling our customers to maximize their possibilities and push through boundaries.”
As part of its strategic focus on enabling customers to drive digital transformation, Fujitsu is making the following announcements at Fujitsu Forum:
- New Fujitsu survey confirms that digital disruption is the new norm: More than half of business leaders (52%) say that digital disruption means their organizations will not exist in their current forms by 2021, per a global study commissioned by Fujitsu. While almost all (98%) said their organization has already been impacted and will continue to be impacted by digital disruption, 92% recognized their business needs to evolve to thrive in a digital world and 75% believe their sector will fundamentally change in the next five years.
- Continued momentum in the rollout of Fujitsu Cloud Service K5, a key element of Fujitsu’s cloud enablement and digital transformation strategy. Fujitsu is continuing the rollout of its K5 PaaS public and private sector cloud services, giving customers a wider choice of regions and local data residency to meet legislative requirements for the management of sensitive information as they take advantage of new Fast IT and cloud technologies.
- New Cloud IoT Platform: The Fujitsu Cloud IoT Platform, underpinned by the Cloud Service K5, simplifies and accelerates the design, delivery and management of robust, high performance IoT-based enterprise solutions. It eliminates the complexity of traditional IoT deployments, and makes business intelligence data from multiple sources easily accessible for integration into all business areas and mainstream business processes.
- Creation of a new Cybersecurity business in EMEIA: Fujitsu is launching a Cybersecurity business in Europe, Middle East, India and Africa (EMEIA) region – helping businesses to strengthen their resilience against cyberattack as part of a new, globally-integrated security offering. Fujitsu is aiming to protect customer assets and underpin business continuity through providing continuous system monitoring to strengthen resilience against any form of online threat or attack.
- An increased focus on Fujitsu Artificial Intelligence (AI) Solutions, such as a new healthcare solution designed to improve clinical decision-making, following a successful field trial with San Carlos Clinical Hospital in Madrid. This solution, developed on the back of in-depth research into applying advanced data analytics for healthcare applications, deploys Fujitsu Laboratories’ state of the art anonymization technologies and Fujitsu’s data analytics technologies, tailored to meet the specific needs of the local Spanish healthcare sector. The technology will form the basis of a new Health Application Programming Interface (API), to be deployed in the Fujitsu cloud or delivered locally in a private cluster or cloud.
