Fujitsu Europe

Munich/Orlando, January 28, 2020 – Fujitsu was today named global ‘Partner of the Year’ – the highest distinction possible - by Citrix Systems, Inc. It was also declared Citrix ‘Global Systems Integrator (GSI) of the Year’ for the EMEA (Europe, Middle East and Africa) region.
The announcements were made in Orlando at Citrix Summit, Citrix’s annual partner conference and fiscal year ‘kick-off’. Accepting the award for Fujitsu, Megumi Shimazu, Corporate Executive Officer and EVP, Head of Digital Infrastructure Services Business Group, donated the US $20,000 prize money to charities combating the Australian bush fire disaster, including the Red Cross. Citrix has pledged to match this donation, raising the total amount raised to US $40,000.
Citrix selected Fujitsu as Partner of the Year based on a sequence of highly successful joint engagements and customer wins, especially in Asia-Pacific, Japan and Europe. It also spotlighted Fujitsu Oceania in the award citation as one of the first customers for Citrix® Workspace™ with intelligent capabilities, which Fujitsu is leveraging to transform the employee experience for its own teams as well as those of its customers. Further evidence of the tight partnership bond between the companies was evidenced by the recent integration between Citrix Workspace and Fujitsu’s RunMyProcess Digital Suite. With this integration, companies can make workers more efficient and productive by organizing and automating task engagement as line-of-business transactions in an intelligent and actionable way.
