The new Fujitsu Integration Centre for Windows 2000 is making it easier for business to get on the Internet.

Fujitsu and Microsoft in New Zealand have partnered in the launch of a Fujitsu Integration Centre for Windows 2000. The Centre combines networked hardware and software to facilitate the design, building and testing of solutions that deliver customers' e-services needs.

The Integration Centre has been developed in response to customer demand for solutions designed to meet their specific e-services needs - well tested, secure and ready-to-roll, with no surprises!

Fujitsu uses the Integration Centre to show its customers a selection of multivendor products and service offerings relating to electronic business, security, platform technology and systems management.

Businesses often really struggle with integration - translating their business needs into their actual physical networks. We'll be using the Centre to help our customers understand integration issues, to assist with their planning and to deliver the next generation of integration services today.

Geoff Lawrie, Managing Director of Microsoft New Zealand, said "Our work with Fujitsu in creating the Centre for excellence demonstrates how local customers can benefit from strong global partnerships."

Customers can see a variety of products and design options demonstrated and prototyped to show how they would work in their environments. This leads into detailed solution planning, creative design and integration into their current IT infrastructure. The solution is tested, usually piloted, and then deployed throughout the customer's organisation.

'Microsoft is always looking for innovative and practical ways to provide customers with leading edge solutions through its products and partnerships,' Geoff Lawrie said.

The Centre is set up with equipment from leading vendors, including network hardware from Cisco, Proxim wireless hardware from MPA, Wyse Winterm terminals, Citrix thin client solutions and the full range of Microsoft operating systems. Also represented are Compaq, Hewlett Packard, IBM and Dell, and a range of application software vendors.
