Fujitsu rolls out global cloud strategyJuly 15 - 10am
Fujitsu has unveiled a new global cloud strategy, set to “strengthen every aspect of its end-to-end portfolio of services and solutions for cloud.”
Leveraging its international presence, the company has also introduced the concept of Cloud Integration, new offerings, and harmonised naming conventions.
Most business leaders agree that the cloud can help them address many challenges, while it is also seen as a catalyst for business transformation, particularly in the era of social, mobile, and big data explosion.
However, according to Fujitsu, 59% of decision makers believe that decisions about cloud adoption are more complex and difficult in their company, based on their unique mix of corporate culture, organisational structures, geographic presence, infrastructure, processes, and other factors.
“Fujitsu has long recognised that cloud is complex,” says Cameron McNaught, EVP, Solutions, International Business, Fujitsu.
“Organisations must balance short and long-term objectives for cloud implementation to address their own unique mix of requirements.
“Fujitsu continues to work hard to maintain its growing reputation as a trusted cloud partner. Our focus has always been to offer the broadest choice of cloud services.
“Our newly launched Cloud Integration Services enable our clients to leverage multiple cloud environments in a coherent way, allowing them to more quickly and easily to innovate and modernise their ICT systems.”
“Do it yourself”
When it comes to cloud deployment, the majority of cloud decision makers reject the ‘do it yourself’ approach, instead preferring to utilise the resources and expertise of a trusted cloud partner, McNaught says.
But according to the research, 78% of decision makers want a provider to take end-to-end responsibility for part or all of their cloud implementation, while 74% prefer cloud providers with experience in hardware and software solutions, and strong integration, consulting and managed services skills.
McNaught says Fujitsu recognises that cloud is intrinsically complex – one size does not fit all – and the FUJITSU Cloud Initiative offers business and IT leaders the choice and integration services that they are asking for.
The new Cloud Integration concept combines consulting expertise and managed services to enable organizations to choose the right cloud options for them.
It then is capable of integrating multiple cloud environments with their legacy systems, to deliver a seamless service to their customers and users.
