Fujitsu Australia signs formal agreement with Device42

News Facts:

  • Fujitsu Australia and Device42 have formalised a closer business relationship after five years of collaboration.
  • This arrangement will provide Fujitsu Australia and its customers with access to Device42’s discovery of infrastructure and application dependency mapping for cloud migrations, data centre consolidations, and configuration management database (CMDB) population across hybrid IT enterprises.
  • Device42 significantly reduces the time required to modernise data centres and migrate to the cloud. It delivers rapid time to value by clearly showing the current state of IT, mitigating potential cybersecurity risks and reducing the impact of shadow IT.

Sydney, March 23, 2021 - Fujitsu Australia today announced it has signed a formal agreement with software company Device42, which provides a comprehensive, automatic discovery solution for infrastructure and applications within hybrid IT environments.

Through this relationship, Fujitsu Australia and Device42 will provide discovery and dependency mapping for cloud migrations, data centre consolidations, and configuration management database (CMDB) population. Fujitsu is one of Device42’s top five global system integrators (GSI).

Fujitsu and Device42 are working together to position the unique advantages of using discovery and service mapping to accelerate Amazon Web Services (AWS) and other migrations. Fujitsu and Device42 have collaborated successfully for more than five years on many different customer projects worldwide. This latest agreement solidifies this relationship.

Device42 offers agentless discovery, with agent-based options also available. It collects data that allow organisations to review all the infrastructure on their network, including end-point devices, and map dependencies together with the interconnection between software applications, including cloud-based apps. This helps organisations with complex IT environments to rapidly identify their accurate and detailed current state. This significantly speeds time to value in any IT transformation project by showing which applications map to specific business services and tracking progress as change occurs.

Fujitsu Australia and Device42 can help enterprises efficiently conduct infrastructure and application modernisation projects, including cloud migration, as well as their daily management of hybrid IT, while mitigating audit, compliance and cybersecurity risks.

Silke Barlow, Head of Platform Sales, Oceania, Fujitsu, said, “What organisations can’t see can hurt them. There are many companies that may not have complete visibility about what is in their IT environment. The Fujitsu and Device42 relationship gives organisations the surety of having complete visibility of all infrastructure and applications on their network, as well as how these components interact with each other. This speeds up the time to value for IT transformation while mitigating the impact of shadow IT.

“The Device42 agreement complements Fujitsu’s technology ecosystem because it will help Fujitsu deliver highly integrated solutions for clients, starting from the infrastructure map provided through Device42.”

Garrett Long, Senior Vice President of Ecosystem, Device42, said, “It has been a pleasure working with Fujitsu on a number of successful opportunities during the past several years. Device42 sees significant opportunity for the businesses’ joint capabilities to accelerate IT transformation, enhance lifecycle service management and do so in a secure, compliant manner. Fujitsu has been a fantastic organisation to work with and Device42 is excited to extend the relationship further.”

Silke Barlow said, “Because organisations automatically get a map of all of their applications and software infrastructure, there is no guesswork. The Device42 platform identifies all infrastructure and software applications across the enterprise. It is the perfect solution for complex hybrid IT environments.”
