Global IC services provider Fujitsu has held a two-day series on June 13 & 14 of commemorative activities in Kuala Lumpur to mark the end of its year-long 75th anniversary celebration in Malaysia. The company announced that it is on target to achieve at least 40 per cent of sales outside Japan.

"Fujitsu Malaysia's Transformation Programme is in line with the Group's One Fujitsu - Business Strategy to achieve at least 40 per cent of sales outside Japan via more creation of global standardised IT solutions," said Fujitsu Malaysia president Charles Lew. "The Transformation Programme at the company will see clearer definition of five of its vertical business lines that are broadly segregated into platform products (servers, storage, and scanners); infrastructure integration services; network services; applications services and managed/outsourcing services."

Lew said Fujitsu Malaysia has also strengthened its teams to support the industry verticals of public service/government, telecommunication, healthcare, education, enterprise, oil & gas and financial services. "Also, the cloud strategy is a very important part of Fujitsu Malaysia's accelerated growth under its Transformation Programme which is already underway."

"The company is also rolling out Fujitsu Cloud Offerings for ASEAN, that is aligned with Fujitsu Malaysia's support for the country's Economic Transformation Programme (ETP), announced by the Malaysian government late last year," he said, adding that enterprise customers could now benefit from three specific offerings - the Fujitsu Global Cloud Platform, SAP Infrastructure-as-a-Service (IaaS), and Cloud Professional Services.

Lew said that in its 75 years of establishment, Fujitsu spearheaded innovative breakthroughs in IT and telecommunication activities - from its early days of telephone switching in the 1930s, to the 'parallel computing' generation of the 1970s, and up to the more recent biometric (palm vein) authentication technology and introducing the world's first 3D Desktop PC.

The Fujitsu Group aims to generate US$17 billion in revenue from its global cloud services business by March 2016; and projects that 30 per cent of its ICT revenues will be cloud-related by fiscal year 2015. Fujitsu reported global revenue of 4.5 trillion yen (US$55 billion) for its fiscal year that ended 31 March 2010.

"Fujitsu aims to help our customers gauge the level of IT transformation that they require, adopt the best technologies and ICT models that enable them to achieve rapid internal IT transformation in their businesses," Fujitsu Australia and New Zealand chief technology officer, Craig Baty. "This means that we will continue to understand the respective local market conditions and needs to invest in emerging IT trends which matter to our customers."
