Managing a gradual migration to digital systems
In many cases, the operation of an overly complicated legacy system depends on the expertise of a limited number of professionals. The key to migrating these systems efficiently to digital systems involves a process of automatically identifying parts that can be digitalized, involving the analysis of the existing system source code and operational monitoring. In this way, digital systems can be developed that have minimal impact on existing systems, paving the way for new functionality such as AI to be added externally.
Another important consideration is that digital systems with new functions are not deployed as on-premises single environment systems, but rather as distributed and mixed environment systems that include other companies' clouds. To this end, Fujitsu Laboratories is researching technologies designed to reduce the burden of development and operation, for example supporting system management in a multi-cloud environment and identifying new methods to address operational problems.
In essence, Fujitsu Laboratories is researching and developing a new total system engineering technology approach that supports a gradual and seamless transition to digital systems.
