Fujitsu, Oracle collaborate to speed up digital transformation for Caribbean customers

Friday, August 10, 2018

Fujitsu Caribbean Limited last week announced an expansion of its cloud offerings under a strengthened collaboration with Oracle Corporation.

The joint effort will enable the rapid build out of multiple cloud environments and high- quality multi-cloud operations, Fujitsu said in a news release reporting on the launch in event in Trinidad.

According to the company, the “strategic alliance provides robust cloud offering to customers in the Caribbean to support digital transformation”.

It will also allow Fujitsu to directly provide Oracle Cloud Services to customers as part of any hybrid IT or modernisation project.

“Under the agreement, Fujitsu will deliver Oracle Cloud @ Customer to public and private sector companies from it's data centre in Trinidad, enabling enterprises to accelerate cloud transformation and leverage multi-cloud solutions,” the company explained.

“Many of our customers do not have the internal expertise needed, or the scale and agility to move quickly to adopt cloud and leverage all of the new digital capabilities available today,” the release quotes Fujitsu Caribbean President and CEO Mervyn Eyre.

“We have a unique opportunity to solve this problem for our customers by helping them navigate the complexities of migrating to the cloud and provide solutions that will help accelerate their digital transformation. Oracle Cloud @ Customer will help customers quickly migrate workloads to the cloud, modernise their legacy systems, derive better value from current investments and allow them to rapidly provide new services,” Eyre added.

“For most customers, the key to delivering digital transformation is the increased ability and speed of innovation that come from orchestrated hyperscale cloud; digital-native apps; and strategic on-premises capabilities driven by security, compliance or massively tailored business software,” he said.

“Fujitsu is positioning itself at the fulcrum of this growth nexus, with a significantly enhanced, transformative cloud-powered cloud service portfolio, underpinned by deepened relationships with the leading hyperscale cloud service providers. We are also adding development and operational capabilities that address customers' increasingly complex estates as a key part of a leading multi-cloud portfolio of enablement services,” Eyre said.

Amit Kanda, vice-president of product management at Oracle Corporation, explained that in order to maximise the benefits of cloud computing, organisations need secure, reliable and high-performing cloud solutions

“For over three decades, Oracle and Fujitsu have worked together combining their shared expertise to create innovative solutions, enabling customers to scale their organisations and achieve a competitive advantage. Oracle's new strategic alliance with Fujitsu will allow companies in the Caribbean to drive digital transformation and spur business growth. It will enable customers to achieve standardisation, modernisation, and provide a pathway to accelerate the delivery of new services,” the release quotes Kanda.
