We have assembled a program that will be attractive to anyone interested in ICT strategy and innovation leadership in their organisation. Globally Fujitsu spends over US$2 billion in research and development each year and we are proud to be able to showcase some highlights of this innovation at the Sydney event. We have also been able to secure some of Fujitsu’s acknowledged thought leaders who will bring us up to date with not only what is coming, but also how it is being implemented today.”
