A huge amount of focus was placed on helping Fujitsu's customers accelerate towards digital transformation at the company's World Tour 2016.
The ICT company also revealed further expansion of its Cloud Service K5 and plans of a new local delivery centre for New Zealand and Australia.
In order to ensure its customers are embracing digital transformation, Fujitsu have developed Digital Business Platform MetArc – providing customers with a comprehensive set of tools that allow them to take advantage of key digital capabilities such as Big Data, Enterprise Mobility and the Internet of Things (IoT).
According to Fujitsu, MetArc is designed to enable customers to digitalise with confidence, delivering hybrid IT landscapes that bring together hugely valuable data.
Fujitsu also announced plans to make a further investment to add data residency to its Cloud Service K5. This will encompass a 2017 deployment of the K5 Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS) and Platform as a Service (PaaS) in a local Fujitsu data centre.
The company claims these actions will create a high performance, enterprise-grade, fully resilient and secure platform service to meet the needs of customers in New Zealand and Australia.
Mike Foster, CEO, Fujitsu Australia and New Zealand says that using the cloud is no longer a competitive advantage in its own right.
“Australian organisations need to look beyond their existing infrastructure and adopt more agile IT systems if they wish to keep ahead of the game. We are seeing a disruptive, start-up mentality emerging throughout the business world. Organisations looking to maintain their relevance will increasingly face a need for rapid system development and overhaul,” says Forster.
“Our Digital Business Platform MetaArc engages a complete ecosystem of partners to allow customers to digitalise their business with confidence and take advantage of key digital capabilities in order to stay ahead of the competition – both local and global.”
