Sydney, August 30, 2012

Fujitsu announces today it has signed a 5-year IT infrastructure and applications services outsourcing agreement with Perpetual Limited (ASX: PPT). The strategic partnership allows Perpetual to leverage Fujitsu’s proven best practices to modernise its IT infrastructure and applications as well as enable a number of service and capability improvements as part of its business-wide Transformation 2015 Strategy.

Following a formal evaluation of its existing information technology arrangements, Perpetual called for proposals to comprehensively transform its IT infrastructure, including networks, desktop, and applications. From this competitive process, Fujitsu was selected as the IT vendor to add substantial value to Perpetual's business.

Mike Foster, Chief Executive Officer of Fujitsu Australia and New Zealand said: “We are looking forward to working with Perpetual as part of its Transformation 2015 Strategy. This engagement is significant for us and is testament to Fujitsu’s proven capability to deliver economies of scale based on best practice processes. Fujitsu’s reputation for solid infrastructure and applications management aligns with Perpetual’s requirement for the reliable delivery of critical services.”

According to Jens Butler, Principal Analyst for IT Services at OVUM, this deal highlights the growing trend for longer term inclusive deals with a single supplier. He says “...Enterprises increasingly demand control and stability especially where risk mitigation and regulatory compliance are of critical importance. Fujitsu’s local reputation for solid infrastructure and applications management capabilities evidently resonates with this increasing requirement for the reliable delivery of multiple services”.

The context of the Transformation 2015 Strategy is contained in Perpetual Limited 2012 Financial Results announcement.
