Mark Phillips, Head of Multi-Cloud at Fujitsu EMEIA, comments: “Only approximately a quarter of European ICT is currently in the cloud – mostly comprising the applications and processes that you could argue were the low hanging fruits for digitalisation. The next phase will be more challenging, as it impacts on organisations’ mission critical systems, and these carry far more risk and complexity. In preparation, we’ve invested a great deal of effort into ensuring that we have all the digital infrastructure components, the ecosystem of partners, and the unrivalled multi-cloud know-how that businesses need to succeed. Our approach is to work together with customers, combining leading technologies with our own expert capabilities, to co-create transformational solutions to real business challenges.”
Effectively managing multi-cloud environments remains the key to truly effective digital transformation, as confirmed by a recent Fujitsu study3. Fujitsu’s Multi-Cloud and Service Orchestration aggregates disparate services, providing a single, seamless solution for managing multiple platforms, technologies, and suppliers to deliver enterprise-wide visibility of customers’ entire hybrid cloud estates.
