Fujitsu Services teams up with SFB Strategic partnership for end-to-end banking solutions

July 30, 2008

Fujitsu Services AG (Switzerland) and SFB services4banks AG have formed a strategic partnership, creating an integrated service offering that will benefit customers.

This move enables both companies to systematically pursue their growth strategies in the banking sector. While SFB services4banks AG provides conventional application and modular business services, Fujitsu Services AG, as a member of a leading international IT group, offers the full range of data-center services.

The two companies have extensive experience and long-standing customer relationships in their respective core business areas. “Now, we can combine our skills to deliver more, and better quality, services,” states Christoph Höinghaus, COO of Fujitsu Services AG (Switzerland). “And that’s of significant benefit to our customers.”

“Thanks to this strategic partnership and a joint workforce of around 100 employees, we can support banks and other financial institutions across the entire outsourcing value chain, and across three sites,” says Peter Kaszuba, CEO of SFB services4banks AG. When it comes to disaster recovery, for example, Fujitsu can provide the infrastructure while services4banks performs application-management.
