TOKYO – Fujitsu has announced a comprehensive update to bolster its modernization services offerings, boldly reimagining its approach for customers’ existing information systems to realize their digital transformation (DX). Fujitsu will work with customers to visualize their current assets including business processes, data, applications, and IT infrastructure to design the ideal DX platform, while providing guidance in streamlining and modernizing systems.
To launch this effort, Fujitsu is establishing a new center of excellence (CoE), the Modernization Knowledge Center, which will serve as a focal point for technical information and expertise essential for modernization. This center will begin offering support for customers in the Japan market from September 2022, with global service support to follow.
With this move, Fujitsu demonstrates its commitment to delivering an optimal experience for customers with a comprehensive suite of modernization services, encompassing robust specialist support, bolstered by leading-edge technologies to help guide customers on their modernization journeys with confidence and peace of mind.
Resilience and agility in information systems for an unpredictable era
As companies continue to grapple with an increasingly challenging and unpredictable world, the pressure to adapt to changes with agility and resilience grows more intense along with the need to preserve business competitiveness and achieve sustainable management. Traditionally, information systems have been built for the public and financial sectors and for the separate operations that comprise a company’s business activities, like production, distribution, sales, and accounting. In many cases, the lack of uniformity in techniques for building systems and data structures means that migration to modern systems can become time consuming, costly, and disruptive to businesses.
Fujitsu has been working with customers to modernize legacy systems to overcome the “2025 Cliff” revealed by Japan’s Ministry of Economy, Trade and Industry’s DX Report.
Fujitsu announced end of life and end of maintenance dates for mainframe and UNIX servers (1) as part of its Hybrid IT roadmap in February 2022. To guide its mainframe and UNIX server customers as they navigate the modernization of their systems, Fujitsu draws on end-to-end specialist expertise as well as its world-class technological capabilities in key areas including Computing, Networks, AI, Data & Security, and Converging Technologies to deliver robust, comprehensive modernization services.
Fujitsu anticipates that 3,000 customers globally will use its Modernization Services, with 35,000 people engaged with delivering these capabilities, drawing from resources including Fujitsu’s network of Global Delivery Centers by fiscal 2025.
