Fujitsu, the multinational information technology equipment and services company, announced on Tuesday that it has joined the SAP Regional Strategic Services Partner (RSSP) initiative. The initiative was established by SAP Asia Pacific Japan (APJ) to support digital transformation (DX) across the Asia Pacific region. By joining the RSSP, Fujitsu aims to offer comprehensive support to customers with multinational presence in the region for modernisation and cloud migration of core systems.
Through close collaboration with SAP, Fujitsu will be able to develop SAP-enabled solutions that are adapted to the local business practices and legal systems of each country, delivering DX solutions to customers across the APJ region. Fujitsu will also help customers migrate to cloud infrastructures by adopting solutions such as RISE with SAP.
Participation in the SAP RSSP initiative represents a crucial milestone for Fujitsu as part of its vision for “Business Applications” to support more sustainable business transformation under Fujitsu Uvance, Fujitsu’s portfolio of global solutions to realise a sustainable world.
Fujitsu, which has a long track record in the manufacturing and retail sectors, will support customers through this initiative by driving digital transformation of their businesses through modernisation of core systems, including the digitalisation of management and business processes.
Based on SAP solutions, Fujitsu will support customers’ end-to-end digital transformation by combining its consulting know-how for building business systems and cloud implementation with its portfolio of digital solutions. Fujitsu will also develop new industry solutions such as “Fujitsu Application for SAP Solutions” for the manufacturing industry and “Fujitsu Profit Protection” for the retail industry, both of which can be integrated with “SAP® Business Technology Platform (BTP)”.
Together with SAP, Fujitsu aims to deliver new solutions that address the different business practices and legal systems of each region and country in the Asia Pacific region and add high value to customers’ businesses.
Paul Marriott, President, SAP Asia Pacific Japan, expressed delight at Fujitsu’s decision to join the initiative, stating that closer collaboration and innovation with partners is critical to ensure they continue to meet the needs of their customers and support them on their cloud transformation journeys. Fujitsu’s experience implementing RISE with SAP for its own digital transformation demonstrates its commitment to its own and SAP’s customers’ growth, scaling from Japan through the rest of the region.
Shunsuke Onishi, SEVP, Head of Global Customer Success, Fujitsu, expressed enthusiasm for the partnership, stating that together with SAP, Fujitsu has been focusing on providing customers with recommendations to extract maximum value from combining technology and applications. Through the RSSP initiative, they will contribute to the creation of a flexible and scalable foundation to meet the diverse needs of their customers, providing best practice recommendations to customers who work beyond national and regional boundaries.
