”We appreciate Fujitsu's sophisticated services and excellent service descriptions. Fujitsu has been able to produce clear-cut guidelines, as well as monitoring and reporting procedures. They form a solid basis on which to develop the services further. Besides, we know exactly what we're paying for," lists CIO Kari Kujanen of the Ministry of Justice.

On reviewing the offers, the decisive factors were service levels and economic efficiency.

"Also the life cycle approach and continuity were more accentuated in our decision-making than before. We aim at flexible IT services and high availability throughout their life cycle," says COO Juhani Paavilainen of the ICT-Service Center of Ministry of Justice.

There are in excess of 10,000 IT users at 380 locations in the judicial administration sector. These people work at municipal courts, prisons, legal aid offices, execution offices and prosecutor's offices.
