A year after globally launching the FUJITSU Cloud Initiative, Fujitsu is strengthening its commitment to unlocking the business-innovation, cost-efficiency and agility benefits of cloud for its customers around the world. In doing so, Fujitsu is well on its way to building one of the broadest portfolios of IaaS, PaaS, SaaS and Cloud Integration Services. Having commited to a two-year investment of approx. 2 billion US$ in business innovation, social innovation and strengthening global delivery capabilities, Fujitsu has been busy bringing to market new offerings, deepening its deployments, and growing its customer base.
According to research by analyst firm Frost & Sullivan1, the global cloud computing market is expected to reach approximately US$86 billion in 2016 from an estimated US$36 billion in 2013, and is expanding at a compound annual growth rate of 33.4 percent. While PaaS continues to grow and SaaS remains the most popular cloud service offering with users, IaaS is expected to grow at 40 percent per annum for the 2013-2016 period.
Fujitsu supports its customers wherever they are on their cloud journey, with a strategic focus on broadening its cloud protfiolio, making it easy to adopt cloud alongside traditional, non-cloud systems and manage these consistently in a hybrid IT environment. The company has continued to build on a solid foundation of delivering robust and innovative ICT solutions and services: This has now harmonized as Fujitsu continues to invest in its cloud portfolio to provide on a global basis offerings that have been developed and successfully deployed in different regions around the world.2
Cameron McNaught. Executive Vice President, Solutions, Global Delivery, Fujitsu
”Fujitsu has a vision of a Human Centric Intelligent Society, one where social and business innovation is driven by the intelligent use of information and communication technologies. We see cloud as the natural platform for delivering these new types of applications, which is reflected in both the increase we are seeing in cloud adoption and how it is becoming a standard part of IT service delivery models for many CIOs today. We also recognize that no single cloud service provider can meet all customer needs, so we are continuing to invest in our cloud integration services.”
Alexander Michael, Director of Consulting, ICT, Frost & Sullivan
“Fujitsu has established itself in the global cloud computing market with its diverse portfolio and attractive cloud offerings, in spite of the high competition. Fujitsu’s Cloud Initiative is redefining the cloud landscape – it allows for management of cloud and non-cloud services and is available on-premise or on the cloud. Fujitsu’s solutions leverage the company’s existing 25 cloud centers and 32 platforms, well-trained support services, innovation expertise and market leadership in cloud services. Given an end-to-end cloud services portfolio and unique value propositions, enterprises should definitely consider Fujitsu when evaluating cloud service providers. Fujitsu can be your partner throughout your cloud journey from adopting public cloud solutions to moving to a complex IT environment – underscored by its deep integration capabilities.”
