Following on from the recent announcement from Fujitsu to expand its collaboration with strategic cloud providers Microsoft® and VMware®, the company announced partnership enhancements with SAP® and Oracle® to deliver accelerated, more effective digital transformation to its customers. Fujitsu is strengthening its multi-cloud integration and operations services to address the growing industry-wide cloud skills gap, underpinning its position as a leading global systems integrator.
These enhancements address the growing demand from customers for third-party orchestration of complex IT estates by leveraging the company's ecosystem partners and outstanding industry knowhow. With a extensive choice of cloud providers spanning multiple hyperscale services and platforms, Fujitsu is providing a comprehensive line-up of integration and operations services for organizations with hybrid IT and multi-cloud environments.
Enabling enterprises to accelerate cloud transformation and leverage multi-cloud solutions
With this approach Fujitsu enables enterprises to accelerate their cloud migration and deploy higher-quality operations rapidly. Fujitsu empowers customers to deploy best-of-breed services and solutions that meet specific performance and functionality requirements, instead of being forced into a one-size-fits-all solution, based on other integrators often favoring a single preferred cloud platform approach.
Key strategic multi-cloud partnerships with leading global enterprise cloud platform, services and application providers will start with Microsoft, VMware, SAP and Oracle, and Fujitsu will expand the lineup going forward. These new investments and partnerships remove the skills, experience and technology barriers facing enterprises on their digital transformation journeys, giving customers the confidence to embark on truly transformative, multi-cloud digital projects.
Dixie Erwin, Head of Digital Technology Services at Fujitsu America, Inc., said, "The days of 'one size fits all' cloud are over. Fujitsu is empowering businesses to achieve their goals faster by eliminating the burdensome task of moving to cloud. With an enhanced strategy that provides end-to-end, multi-cloud and Hybrid IT services from world-class hyperscale cloud and application partners, Fujitsu offers clients extensive choice so they can select a cloud solution that is right for their business and workloads, freeing them to focus on growth, unhindered by limitations in IT capability. And with vast investments in people and skills, Fujitsu brings in hard-to-find talent to do the job."
Fujitsu is training approximately 10,000 people globally in multi-cloud certifications to address industry-wide skills shortage
To supports its customers in removing the biggest barrier for enterprises to succeed with digital transformation, Fujitsu is making significant investments in people and skills and training globally approximately 10,000 customer-facing employees to ensure its customers have access to highly skilled personnel with the latest skills, agile methodologies and relevant certifications to leverage leading cloud platforms.
New SAP on Azure offering highlights Fujitsu's global capabilities managing Microsoft cloud
A new offering, SAP on Microsoft Azure® from Fujitsu, leverages the Fujitsu end-to-end hybrid IT capabilities and global partnerships with both Microsoft and SAP. This new customer-centric solution underlines the company's commitment to helping enterprises take SAP into the cloud, transform applications towards SAP S4/HANA® and augment the existing functionality of SAP software and processes to provide a competitive advantage. SAP on Azure from Fujitsu builds on a long-standing and deep relationship between Fujitsu and Microsoft that includes running dedicated Microsoft Azure service delivery teams both locally and globally for the last seven years.
Working together, Fujitsu and Microsoft have developed new services that combine the SAP on Azure platform with SAP knowledge and business transformation experience from Fujitsu. Available immediately as a managed service, SAP on Azure from Fujitsu is designed to help customers to discover, migrate and manage SAP in the cloud.

Managed Oracle Cloud services provide additional flexibility for Oracle workloads
