Fujitsu Europe

News facts:

  • Fujitsu has opened the nomination process for its 6th annual SELECT Innovation Awards
  • Awards recognize digital transformation projects that have delivered significant value to customers by combining Fujitsu’s product and services portfolio with channel partners’ unique capabilities
Munich, July 14, 2020 – To identify 2020’s most innovative Channel partners, Fujitsu is calling for entries for its 2020 SELECT Innovation Awards. In line with its expanded focus on the partner ecosystem, Fujitsu is casting its net wide – and accepting entries from a wider than ever selection of partners, including service providers, emerging technology specialists and SELECT Experts.

Over the last two years, the Fujitsu SELECT channel has evolved into a multi-faceted ecosystem. Today it encompasses not just traditional value-added resellers and trusted IT advisors, but also technology partners, service providers, partners with specializations in emerging technology fields and integration partners. As it focuses on a data-driven transformation strategy, Fujitsu actively promotes and encourages partner-to-partner collaborations that are emerging within this ecosystem, and anticipates a growing percentage of entries for collaborative projects for this year’s awards.

Each award submission will be reviewed by an expert panel who will score it on the transformative value of the project plus the creativity and innovation of the solution. Reflecting Fujitsu’s focus on enabling enterprises to take control of their data as the foundation of successful digital transformation, this year’s awards will particularly welcome entries relating to data-related projects that enable businesses to effectively unlock their full potential.

Fernanda Catarino, Head of Channel Europe at Fujitsu comments: “All around us, digital technology is transforming business, society and people’s everyday lives. At Fujitsu, the innovative use of technology to benefit our customers and society is in our DNA. But, today, the complexity of businesses’ requirements means that we rely increasingly on our ecosystem of extraordinary partners to help deliver digital transformations. And every year, we are proud to recognize and celebrate their achievements with the SELECT Innovation Awards. Now the awards are open, we’re calling on all partners to show us your very best work.”

Fujitsu will create a video case study of the shortlisted projects, featuring channel partners and their customers. The winner will receive USD 10,000 in sales development funds to be used for a joint marketing campaign with Fujitsu1.

To enter, partners should complete the nomination form2 for the project or projects that best illustrate the innovative ways they are leveraging Fujitsu technologies to create positive change. Only projects that are fully implemented by the date of submission are eligible. The deadline for entries is September 10, 2020 at midday Central European Summer Time (CEST).
