Fujitsu recognised with top Oracle User Group awards

October 22, 2008

Fujitsu Services, one of Europe’s leading IT services companies, was a winner at the recent Oracle User Group Partner of the Year Awards. Fujitsu, who has been an Oracle implementation partner for 15 years and has over 2,000 global Oracle professionals, picked up the award for the UK Oracle User Group (UKOUG) Public Sector Partner of the Year and was runner up in the UKOUG Shared Services Partner of the Year and the UKOUG Middleware Partner of the Year categories.

The award winners were voted for by the Oracle community and recognise Partners that the community believe has best supported Oracle users throughout the past 12 months. These inaugural awards recognise and reward the value that Partners bring to Oracle users.

Ronan Miles, chairman of the UKOUG comments, “Formally recognising the value that Oracle Partners bring to the Oracle eco-system throughout the UK and Ireland has been an objective of mine for some time now. With over 1,000 customer votes cast, the winners of the first ever Partner of the Year Awards should feel very proud that their customers have chosen to publicly recognise the value they deliver.”

Petri Imberg, director, Application Services, Fujitsu Services: “Fujitsu values its partnership with Oracle very highly. We are seeing extremely successful results with clients where we have implemented Oracle solutions and Oracle is a healthy component of our application services offering.”

At Reading Borough Council who has invested in Oracle’s Hyperion Planning Plus to meet local government requirements for devolved budgeting and central planning, Fujitsu Services implemented the software as part of a managed service. Julie Cave, finance systems manager at Reading Borough Council was with Fujitsu at the awards ceremony: “Oracle Hyperion Planning Plus generates substantial time savings at every stage of the budgeting process and enables us to deliver timely, accurate medium and long-term budget forecasts without the need for additional resources and without changing our existing processes or organisational structure.”

Andy Seferta, head of European Oracle practice, Fujitsu Services: “We pride ourselves in working with our customers through long-term relationships and are thrilled that these awards provide recognition of our customer successes as we continue to grow our Oracle business in Fujitsu.”
