Fujitsu Extends TRIOLE Strategy for IT Optimization to Global Market

Platform-integration expertise to be shared worldwide

Fujitsu Limited

Tokyo, May 25, 2004

Fujitsu Limited today announced the global expansion of its TRIOLE™ strategy for the optimized design, development and deployment of highly reliable and adaptive business-critical IT infrastructure in heterogeneous environments. Fujitsu group companies and affiliates in EMEA, North America and Asia-Pacific will introduce innovative products, solutions and services based on the TRIOLE strategy to enterprise customers in those regions, enabling them to significantly increase business efficiency, agility and continuity.

TRIOLE, which Fujitsu first introduced and has been developing in Japan, is based on real-life customer experiences and three core technological areas in which it has leading-edge expertise: integration, virtualization and automation. Virtualization separates applications and data from dedicated systems; automation refers to the autonomic self-healing and adaptation of IT infrastructure to meet changing business needs; and integration is the fast, low-cost and low-risk implementation of those technologies across the full IT infrastructure spectrum, including server, storage, network and middleware elements. Fujitsu has applied these core concepts to develop pre-verified templates, called Platform-integration Templates (or Pi Templates) that serve as functional building blocks to speed the construction of highly reliable open-system installations.

Now, as part of the worldwide rollout of TRIOLE, Fujitsu's overseas group companies and affiliates will utilize these Pi Templates and convert the expertise and insights gained from their IT systems work into new Pi Templates, enabling that expertise to be shared and employed throughout the organization. Toward this end, Fujitsu will this year establish Pi Centers – where the templates will be developed, tested and verified - in overseas locations to complement and work closely with its Pi Center in Numazu, Japan, which began operations in June 2003.

"These moves will enable us to leverage our comprehensive platform-integration expertise across all major regional markets,"said Genichi Mitsuhama, general manager of Fujitsu Limited's TRIOLE Business Development Division. "Mobilizing Fujitsu's global resources around TRIOLE will help our customers optimize their IT infrastructures in ways that will accelerate responsiveness to market changes and meet the most pressing management challenges."

"A major advantage of the TRIOLE strategy is that Fujitsu bears the cost of Quality Assurance (QA)," said Vernon Turner, group vice president for IDC. "Removing QA costs and complexity off the customer floor significantly reduces risk for customers and allows them to implement stable and reliable systems via a shared knowledge base."

Since June 2003, when Fujitsu introduced a series of major enhancements to its TRIOLE strategy and launched its Pi Template activities in Japan, it has undertaken various initiatives aimed at strengthening and giving concrete shape to the strategy. These have included:

Core Product Enhancements
Fujitsu has added autonomic control and service-oriented integration features to its flagship Systemwalker and Interstage software products, developed the new IPCOM S Series of network controllers that provide optimized networking environments for IT systems, and enhanced the speed, capacity and reliability of its servers and storage system products.

Platform-Integration Initiatives
Fujitsu has continued the development and application of Pi Templates in customers' IT systems. As a result of these efforts, the company has now generated 27 basic templates and 33 combination templates whose reliability and interoperability characteristics have been verified. In the second half of FY 2003, Pi Templates were applied in approximately 40% of Fujitsu's systems development jobs in Japan (including both planned applications and new proposals based on insights from the templates), primarily for large-scale systems.

Building on this base, Fujitsu will give further momentum to TRIOLE through the global expansion of the strategy in concert with continuing efforts to enhance TRIOLE-based technologies, solutions and services in Japan. Fujitsu's overseas group companies and affiliates will separately be announcing details regarding their TRIOLE-related activities and offerings.
