SUNNYVALE, Calif. -- Fujitsu America begins operations April 1, 2009, led by President and CEO Farhat Ali. The new business unit of Fujitsu Limited consolidates the application services of Fujitsu Consulting, the system platforms of Fujitsu Computer Systems Corporation, and the retailing solutions of Fujitsu Transaction Solutions Inc. under a unified corporate structure designed to expand offerings and provide North American clients a single resource for all their computing technology and IT services needs.
The introduction of Fujitsu America creates an agile, local organization that leverages more than 70 years of technology innovation -- including 32,000 patents -- and the fourth largest global IT services firm to deliver to North American clients true end-to-end IT solutions.
The move consolidates the company's IT strengths under one structure. Clients will benefit from a simplified engagement model with improved accountability and greater access to the complete suite of integrated Fujitsu offerings. This also will improve responsiveness to global clients who look to Fujitsu to support their North American operations.
The consolidation -- together with investment in new infrastructure-based capabilities -- enables Fujitsu America to present full-spectrum IT offerings and to focus on new-business development in outsourcing and managed services. In addition, the company will work with clients and partners in key strategies and developments such as cloud computing, plus other important new growth sectors that offer clients more choices, better service and affordable solutions.
Fujitsu America will be one of the top IT companies in North America, strengthening the Fujitsu brand and enhancing market presence.
