FUJITSU DAY 2012 to Exemplify Infusion of Technology in Business and Society

Leading Japanese IT giant to show case socially interactive robot prototype concept in Malaysia

Kuala Lumpur, October 01, 2012

Fujitsu, Asia’s No.1 ICT solutions provider, will be hosting the Fujitsu Day 2012 ASEAN Roadshow and exhibition in Malaysia to showcase the latest information technology advancements that will help organizations meet today’s business and social challenges.

The full day event will be held on 11th October 2012, at the Grand Dorsett Subang Hotel.

Fujitsu Day 2012 will take place in four countries across ASEAN – Indonesia, Malaysia, Thailand and Singapore – and has the central idea of providing these markets with Fujitsu’s vision of human-centric technologies via its ICT thought-leadership and insights into the latest solution innovations. Special focus will also be given to Fujitsu partnerships with alliances and local ICT players and how their solutions seek to achieve a common ICT vision to provide smart technologies for the betterment of society.

According to the President of Fujitsu Malaysia Charles Lew, the event is targeted at C-Level Executives, CIOs, CTOs, Heads of IT, IT/MIS/IS Managers & IT Administrators, Solution Architects, Project Managers and IT professionals.

Themed “Leveraging the “I” in IT, Fujitsu Day 2012 intends to explain that in the current era, the ‘I’ in ‘IT’ goes beyond an information play. “Malaysian organizations need to seriously look into managing the building blocks of IT – infrastructure and innovation - in order to best leverage information in today’s fast-changing, social and technological landscape,” says Lew.

Inspiring Presentations on Technology Innovations

Fujitsu Day 2012 will feature prominent speakers such as The Economist Corporate Network Director Justin Wood, who will share insights on how the evolving business landscape and the “consumerisation” of IT give rise to new challenges to Asia to innovate technology and potentially emerge as the leading region in the world for adopting and driving new technologies; and Chief Technology & Innovation Officer for Fujitsu Australia & New Zealand Craig Baty, who will present strategies on how leveraging new technologies enable CIOs to harness the three ‘I’s of Infrastructure, Innovation, and Information, to build competitive advantage and drives business growth.

In addition, Fujitsu’s regional Cloud Computing Senior Director, Richard Wern and Minoru Takeno, Head of Corporate Environmental Strategy Unit, Fujitsu Limited will talk about the Cloud Journey and the power of ICT for green growth respectively during the event.

Fujitsu Day 2012 will showcase how organizations can position themselves to operate in a ‘Human Centric Intelligent Society’, where advanced ICT is applied to support both daily economic and social activities.

Four Showcase Highlights

  • Introduction to the ‘Human-Centric Intelligent’ Society
Introduction to the ‘Human-Centric Intelligent’ Society | | | | | | The exhibition includes the introduction of a teddy bear that has been transformed into a ‘social robot’. It reads facial expressions, one of Fujitsu’s milestones in the area of developing human-centric technology and new ways of interacting with human beings. The teddy bear, a point of interest among elderly patients in nursing homes in Japan, comprehends and monitors the patients through face-to-face interaction. The data captured from the interaction is then uploaded into the cloud to alert physicians and staff to changes in the patients’ conditions.
  • Workplace of the Future In the workplace of the future, workers will no longer be tied to their desks or even their computing devices. Mobile broadband, cross-device computing and video conferencing mean that people can work anywhere, any place. Fujitsu Day 2012 will showcase a portfolio of end-user devices ranging from virtual computing infrastructures, workstations and scanners to mobile devices; including innovations such as palm-vein authentication, advanced theft protection, energy efficient capabilities and zero noise PCs - technologies that organizations can embrace and transition into providing employees with workplaces of tomorrow.
  • Business without Borders
Business without Borders Technology innovation makes technology itself less visible as business services become virtualized. Fujitsu will showcase one of the world’s strongest end-to-end cloud portfolios – the Fujitsu Cloud (formerly known as the Fujitsu Global Cloud Platform), which currently supports the demands of over 2,000 organizations worldwide via its service facilities located in Japan, the US, UK, Germany, Australia, and Singapore.
  • Real- Time Insights
Real- Time Insights The rise of “big data” is changing business economics. For the first time ever, new computing architecture such as high performance computers enable the processing of vast amounts of data types (presence, biometric, context, location, proximity, sustainability) from new sources such as the web, mobile, social media, sensors, smart meters, and consumer electronics. Fujitsu’s supercomputing capabilities brings society closer to fundamental questions related to the nature of life and the origin of the universe, as holding the potential answers to human sustainability.
