Oracle, Fujitsu to drive enterprise-grade cloud services in Japan

Cloud applications platform provider Oracle Corporation, Oracle Corporation Japan and Fujitsu have collaborated to form a new strategic alliance for delivering enterprise-grade cloud services to customers in Japan and subsidiaries around the world. The partnership plans to help organizations in Japan shift workloads to Oracle’s Cloud Application and Platform services such as Database Cloud Service and Human Capital Management (HCM) Cloud – that will be powered by Fujitsu’s datacenters in Japan. Under the new strategic alliance, Fujitsu will work to drive sales of cloud offerings to companies in Japan and subsidiaries around the world. “We at Fujitsu support the digital transformation of our customers, and aim to contribute to optimized customer systems and business growth with the roll out of our Digital Business Platform MetaArc,” said Shingo Kagawa, SEVP, Head of Digital Services Business and CTO, Fujitsu Limited.
In particular, we offer the core cloud service on MetaArc, K5, which addresses systems of engagement and systems of record. Oracle is a leader in Japan’s database market segment and possesses strong capabilities in the SoR domain. Now, as we look to strengthen MetaArc and K5, taking part in this strategic alliance with Oracle will work to meet the cloud needs of our customers.
The three entities are of the opinion, that in order to take advantage of cloud computing; to speed innovation, reduce costs and drive business growth, organizations need IT partners that can deliver the performance, security and management capabilities that are demanded by enterprise workloads. Hence, bringing Oracle Cloud Application and Platform services to Fujitsu Cloud Service K5 will provide a high-performance cloud environment to meet the IT and business needs of customers. “In order to realize the full business potential of cloud computing, organizations need secure, reliable and high-performing cloud solutions,” said Edward Screven, Chief Corporate Architect, Oracle.
For over three decades, Oracle and Fujitsu have worked together using our combined R&D, product depth and global reach to create innovative solutions enabling customers to scale their organizations and achieve a competitive advantage. Oracle’s new strategic alliance with Fujitsu will allow companies in Japan to take advantage of an integrated cloud offering to support their transition to the cloud.
Fujitsu plans to install the Oracle Cloud services in its datacenters in Japan and connect them to its K5 service in order to deliver enterprise-grade cloud services. The first Oracle Cloud Application that will be offered to Fujitsu customers under the joint offering is Oracle HCM Cloud. As part of the agreement, Fujitsu will implement HCM Cloud to gain unprecedented insight into its workforce throughout the company’s worldwide network of offices. Hiroshige Sugihara, President and CEO, Oracle Corporation Japan, said:
We strongly believe this cloud alliance will support Japanese companies to drive digital transformation. This will be a gateway for customers to achieve standardization, modernization, and globalization. This initiative will differentiate us from other cloud providers by emphasizing real enterprise cloud solutions, while offering Japanese companies access to best of breed technology in the new Cloud era
Last week, Oracle took its SPARC platform to the cloud to enable organizations easily move enterprise workloads to the cloud. Built on the new SPARC S7 microprocessor, the latest SPARC platform was presented with enterprise-class functionalities for security, new cloud services, engineered systems and servers.
