For Fourth Year in Succession, Fujitsu Named by Gartner as a Leader in Magic Quadrant for Data Center Outsourcing and Infrastructure Utility Services in Europe

Fujitsu UK & Ireland

London, July 13, 2016

Fujitsu has been recognised as a leader in the Gartner Magic Quadrant for Data Center Outsourcing (DCO) and Infrastructure Utility Services (IUS), Europe for the fourth successive year.

To attain the coveted leadership status in a Magic Quadrant, according to Gartner, a vendor must “execute well against its current vision and be well positioned for tomorrow.” Fujitsu’s vision is one of a Human Centric Intelligent Society, where social and business innovation is driven by the intelligent use of information and communication technology. Fujitsu's Managed Infrastructure Services, including Cloud and Data Center technologies, form the foundation of making this vision a reality.

Conway Kosi, Head of Managed Infrastructure Services EMEIA at Fujitsu, says: “We appreciate Gartner’s confirmation of Fujitsu’s leadership position for the fourth successive year which reflects our focus on enabling digital transformation and Hybrid IT management. Our Data Center and Infrastructure Services not only support critical business operations for our customers but they also play a key role in enabling growth through balancing the benefits of robust and fast IT. We believe that Gartner also recognises Fujitsu’s ongoing investment in enhancing our Digital business Platform MetaArc as one of the factors that helped secure our position as a Leader in the new Magic Quadrant.”

Fujitsu’s MetaArc is designed to enable enterprises to digitalise with confidence by taking advantage of key digital capabilities such as Big Data, enterprise mobility and the Internet of Things. It also helps businesses achieve the critical balance of embracing a Hybrid IT environment; leveraging the possibilities offered by cloud-based digital solutions to drive innovation while maintaining and modernising traditional, robust systems that underpin their business operations.

Fujitsu Cloud Service K5, which is a key component of MetaArc, was also evaluated by Gartner. The K5 cloud platform enables customers to extract the maximum possible value out existing investment in IT infrastructure while transitioning to digital solutions. K5 combines Fujitsu’s extensive knowledge of developing cloud solutions and services with open source technologies – resulting in the most open, compatible and agile enterprise cloud platform available in the market today.
