Fujitsu Adds Nimsoft to Its Global Cloud Platform

Cloud-Based Monitoring and Service Desk Solutions to Help Global ICT Leader Better Serve Both Enterprise and ISV Clients

Fujitsu Australia Limited

Sydney, April 11, 2012

Fujitsu and Nimsoft today announced a global partnership under which Fujitsu has incorporated innovative Nimsoft IT management-as-a-service monitoring and service desk solutions into its Fujitsu Global Cloud Portfolio.

The Fujitsu ITMaaS offering is initially available in Australia and New Zealand and is to be rolled out across other global regions in the coming months.

Fujitsu has architected Nimsoft Monitor* and Nimsoft Service Desk* into its portfolio to be delivered from the Fujitsu Global Cloud Platform (FGCP). This complements its rapidly growing catalogue of SaaS applications and Fujitsu’s expertise in IT service management. Fujitsu customers will be able to access functionally rich, easy-to-implement ITMaaS capabilities that can be universally applied to their private, public and hybrid cloud environments—as well as to their conventional IT infrastructure.

The addition of the Nimsoft solutions also makes FGCP an even more compelling option for Fujitsu ISV customers, who are using it as a strategic delivery platform for their own SaaS offering.

“The Nimsoft feature set and delivery model are extremely attractive to both enterprise customers and ISVs looking to control costs, reduce complexity and adaptively meet constantly changing management requirements,” said Mark Frost, General Manager, Nimsoft Solutions Group. “The adoption of our technology by a global powerhouse like Fujitsu is a very strong confirmation of our market leadership.”

With comprehensive, flexible, and easily configurable Nimsoft ITMaaS solutions, Fujitsu can deliver differentiated, revenue-generating cloud services to an increasingly wider range of enterprise, mid-market and ISV customers worldwide.

“Fujitsu continues to work with leading organisations to help our customers take advantage of and implement the best cloud-based solutions,” said Cameron McNaught, Senior Vice President of the Fujitsu Cloud, Global Business Group. “The Fujitsu ITMaaS solution combines Nimsoft technology with Fujitsu cloud infrastructure, strong service management experience, and integration skills to deliver a compelling proposition to companies seeking agile solutions to their IT management challenges.”

“IT Management as a Service gives organisations more flexible alternatives to traditional IT management software,” said Dennis Callaghan, senior enterprise software analyst at 451 Research. “This is important for two reasons. As workloads move into the cloud, the IT management tools can move with them. IT Management as a Service also insulates organisations from additional upgrade and maintenance headaches. Why have IT management software that adds to your IT management overhead?”

The Fujitsu Global Cloud Platform delivers Infrastructure-as-a-Service (IaaS)—including virtual ICT infrastructure, such as servers and storage—over a network from Fujitsu data centres. Available in Japan, Australia, the USA, Germany, the UK and Singapore FGCP provides enterprise customers and ISVs with reliable, cost-efficient on-demand access to configurable ICT resources.
