Mazda Motor Europe (MME) has selected Fujitsu for a multi-million-dollar deal to transform its business operations in Europe towards a Connected Company. The carmaker chose Fujitsu to deliver faster time-to-market and optimize costs while moving to a state-of-the-art public cloud infrastructure. In a five-year contract, Fujitsu will drive forward the modernization and automation of Mazda Europe’s business-critical operations at 28 locations in 23 European markets as it moves to a public cloud infrastructure.

In a competitive tender, Fujitsu convinced MME of the additional business agility that would be possible by making a move to the cloud, away from its current on-premises infrastructure. Fujitsu will implement a cloud-first solution, leveraging its deep knowledge and experience with AWS and Oracle Cloud.

Fujitsu to provide Mazda with Cloud, AIOps, DevOps, FinOps and Security services
Fujitsu is MME’s long-term partner for infrastructure modernization and automation. In the five-year contract, Fujitsu will move Mazda from its existing on-premises-based IT infrastructure to a new model which has its foundations in the public cloud. On top of that, Fujitsu is implementing state-of-the-art security and FinOps operations.

The strategic investment unlocks DevOps capabilities for Mazda, enabling greater future business agility based on a combined AWS and Oracle Cloud infrastructure. By combining AIOps, DevOps and FinOps, Mazda IT Operations is enabled to intelligently orchestrate infrastructure, applications and services across hybrid cloud ecosystems – aligning with business goals, responding to rapidly changing consumer needs on-demand, and optimizing both cloud consumption spend and overall total cost of ownership.

Alex Janssens, VP Information Technologies, Parts Supply & Logistics, CIO at MME, comments: “For Mazda Motor Europe, the compelling business case put forward by Fujitsu underlined the benefits we could gain by going further with our digital transformation plans. Fujitsu’s deep expertise in implementing a hyperscale-based cloud service and management platform convinced us to move away from on-premises infrastructure. As well as enabling greater agility, the AWS and Oracle Cloud infrastructure, enhanced by an automation-first approach, which will also help to keep costs under control.”

Paul Patterson, CEO Europe Region at Fujitsu, comments: “With a clear and long-term focus on our customers, I am delighted to extend our business engagement with Mazda. This endorses our approach and capabilities in partnering with customers to co-create best-in-class digital transformation, at scale. On top of that, the strength of Fujitsu’s relationships with both AWS and Oracle underlines our unrivalled ability to execute large-scale, business-critical engagements. Our visionary, transformational approach was enough to convince Mazda that Fujitsu continues to be its best partner for its future growth.”
