Fujitsu Malaysia Celebrates Transformational Growth of More Than 50 Per Cent

Fujitsu, the leading global IT services provider in Asia, marks the end of its year-long 75th anniversary celebration in Malaysia with a 2-day long (13-14th June) series of commemoration activities in the country’s capital.

The celebrations that started mid of last year, contemplated the organization’s long history of successes in spearheading major Japanese technological innovations that impacted global IT developments since the company’s inception in 1935.

In its 75 years of establishment, Fujitsu spearheaded notable 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.

Today, Fujitsu is Asia’s largest IT service-provider (and the world's third-largest), reporting a global revenue of 4.5 trillion yen (USD55 billion) for its fiscal year that ended March 31, 2010.

Fujitsu Malaysia’s Transformation Programme

Charles Lew (pic first from left), President of Fujitsu Malaysia, shares that 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.

“The Transformation Programme at the company will see clearer definition of five (5) of its vertical business lines that are broadly segregated into: a) Platform Products (servers, storage, and scanners) b) Infrastructure Integration Services c) Network Services d) Applications Services and e) Managed/Outsourcing services.”

He says that 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 – earmarked as the local sectors that are closely correlated to the recent cloud services trend within the region.

“Also, the Cloud Strategy is a very important part of Fujitsu Malaysia’s accelerated growth under its Transformation Programme which is already underway,” he adds, referring to the Fujitsu Cloud Offerings that is being rolled out for ASEAN, that is time-aligned with Fujitsu Malaysia’s support for the country’s Economic Transformation Program (ETP).

Overall Performance, Fujitsu’s Direction Ahead

For FY2010 ending 31st March, Fujitsu reported a surge of 40.5 per cent in operating income, to 132.5 billion yen (~USD1.6 billion). This is attributed to some outstanding achievements that marked the company’s strong bounce back from the recession periods of 2008-2009 when the global IT market suffered from overall soft growth.

The Fujitsu Group aims to generate USD17 billion in revenue from its global cloud services business by March 2016; and projects that 30 per cent of its ICT revenues to be cloud-related by FY2015.

Craig Baty (pic first from right), Chief Technology Officer of Fujitsu Australia and New Zealand says that the Fujitsu 75th Anniversary Celebrations reiterates the strong and proven heritage of Japanese technologies that will empower customers to achieve their business objectives through its new Fujitsu brand commitment of shaping tomorrow with you.

“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.”

“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,” he ends.
