Fujitsu Accelerates Digital Transformation for the Enterprise with Enhanced Multi-Cloud Hybrid IT

News Facts:
  • Fujitsu accelerates customers’ digital transformation with powerful global multi-cloud, multi-partner approach to hybrid IT
  • Strategy positions Fujitsu as a top global systems integrator for delivering and managing complex multi-cloud hybrid IT environments
  • Expansive line-up of cloud services puts Fujitsu ahead of competitors by acknowledging and progressing enterprises’ multi-cloud approach
  • Fujitsu enables customers to overcome industry-wide skills shortage by retraining approximately 10,000 personnel globally to provide customer-facing support in Agile, DevOps and in achieving cloud-specific certification
Sydney, July 13, 2018 - Following on from Fujitsu’s recent announcement to expand its collaboration with strategic cloud providers Microsoft and VMware, the company today announced partnership enhancements with SAP to deliver accelerated, more effective digital transformation to its customers. Fujitsu is strengthening its multi-cloud integration and operations services to address the growing industry-wide cloud skills gap, underpinning its position as a leading global systems integrator.

These enhancements address the growing demand from customers for third-party orchestration of complex IT estates by leveraging the company’s ecosystem partners and outstanding industry knowhow. With an extensive choice of cloud providers spanning multiple hyperscale services and platforms, Fujitsu is providing a comprehensive line-up of integration and operations services for organizations with hybrid IT and multi-cloud environments.

Enabling enterprises to accelerate cloud transformation and leverage multi-cloud solutions

With this approach Fujitsu enables enterprises to accelerate their cloud migration and deploy higher-quality operations rapidly. Fujitsu empowers customers to deploy best-of-breed services and solutions that meet specific performance and functionality requirements, instead of being forced into a one-size-fits-all solution, based on other integrators often favoring a single preferred cloud platform approach.

Key strategic multi-cloud partnerships with leading global enterprise cloud platform, services and application providers will start with Microsoft, VMware, and SAP, and Fujitsu will expand the lineup going forward. These new investments and partnerships remove the skills, experience and technology barriers facing enterprises on their digital transformation journeys, giving customers the confidence to embark on truly transformative, multi-cloud digital projects.

Mike Foster, Chief Executive Officer Fujitsu Australia and New Zealand said: “As digital transformation drives change in our customers’ business, we will continue to focus on supporting their digital journey. Our approach is to provide the right cloud for each specific business need from options available for private cloud and public cloud. By leveraging our investments in Australian cloud and data centre infrastructure, combined with strategic global and local partnerships we are in an excellent position to provide our customers with the appropriate cloud platform for their needs.”

Fujitsu is training approximately 10,000 people globally in multi-cloud certifications to address industry-wide skills shortage

To supports its customers in removing the biggest barrier for enterprises to succeed with digital transformation, Fujitsu is making significant investments in people and skills and training globally approximately 10,000 customer-facing employees to ensure its customers have access to highly skilled personnel with the latest skills, agile methodologies and relevant certifications to leverage leading cloud platforms.

New SAP on Azure offering highlights Fujitsu’s global capabilities managing Microsoft cloud

A new offering, SAP on Azure from Fujitsu, leverages Fujitsu’s end-to-end hybrid IT capabilities and global partnerships with both Microsoft and SAP. This new customer-centric solution underlines Fujitsu’s commitment to helping enterprises take SAP into the cloud, transform applications towards SAP S4/HANA and augment the existing functionality of SAP software and processes to provide a competitive advantage. SAP on Azure from Fujitsu builds on a long-standing and deep relationship between Fujitsu and Microsoft that includes running dedicated Microsoft Azure service delivery teams both locally and globally for the last seven years.

Working together, Fujitsu and Microsoft have developed new services that combine the SAP on Azure platform with SAP knowledge and business transformation experience from Fujitsu. Available immediately as a managed service, SAP on Azure from Fujitsu is designed to help customers to discover, migrate and manage SAP in the cloud.
