Fujitsu has been an insular company, with a market centred in Japan. Does it have what it takes to reinvent itself as a well-represented global player, with cloud computing at its heart?
Fujitsu manufactures computer products ranging from individual components through to a variety of mobile computing and PC products, servers and large mainframes. Its 172,438 employees give it a global presence, although almost two-thirds of its revenue still comes from Japan.
Fujitsu adopted a new strategic model following the end of the joint venture with Siemens in 2009 in which Japan and Europe will serve as bases for global expansion. Cloud computing promises to be a key part of Fujitsu's market expansion. The company has announced plans to build datacentres in the US expressly to bolster its activities in this area, and is also building a datacentre to begin cloud computing operations in China.
This special nine-page report from Computer Weekly analyses the challenges facing Fujitsu, its financial performance, the services it offers, its place in the IT market and its future strategy. Packed with graphs and diagrams, the report is essential reading for any organisation working with, or thinking of working with, Fujitsu.
