Insights & Opinions

  • What Happens When the Lights Go Out?

    The people of Japan discovered how to cope with severe power outages the hard way, because of the earthquake and tsunami of March 2011. Fujitsu’s award-winning role in responding to the crisis, and the part we are playing in designing and building new generation and distribution infrastructure, have timely lessons for UK energy providers.

  • Taking the Sting Out of Public Sector Cuts by Stopping Fraud and Error

    The austerity measures sweeping through the UK’s public sector present a challenging paradox to departments and authorities at all levels of government: the only way cuts will be successfully implemented without severely downgrading services is by doing “better for less”.

  • The “Post-PC Era”: What is the Future of the Desktop?

    Our faithful friend the desktop PC may well be undergoing significant change right now but has such change not been an essential part of its whole existence? A few people may question whether the desktop can survive at all in a world of iPads and smartphones but most recognise its importance. It all comes down to a question of relevance.

  • Survival of the Fittest: Meeting the Challenge of Innovation in a Risk-Averse Environment

  • Seeing Through the Fog of Cloud Services

    The continued confusion around key aspects of cloud services is holding many organisations back from embracing the new model. This is particularly frustrating for many, as IT organisations – like other business functions – are under intense pressure to identify approaches that will simultaneously lower costs and improve agility and productivity.

  • Outcome-Based Agreements: From Pain to Mutual Gain

    More than ever, organisations need to squeeze all the value they can from their investments in IT systems and services. And, for CIO’s under pressure to cut costs, it must be tempting to squeeze at least some of those savings from their suppliers.
