Fujitsu, Oracle join forces to drive cloud computing
The partnership sees Oracle cloud application and platform services to be powered by Fujitsu's data centres in Japan
Fujitsu Limited, Oracle Corporation, and Oracle Corporation Japan have announced they have formed a strategic alliance to deliver enterprise-grade, cloud services to customers in Japan and worldwide.
Cloud computing aims to speed innovation, reduce costs and drive business growth, therefore organisations rely on IT partners that can deliver performance, security and management capabilities. The alliance aims to help organisations in Japan by moving enterprise workloads to the cloud.
As part of the plan, Oracle cloud application and platform services, such as Oracle Database cloud service and Oracle Human Capital Management (HCM) cloud, will be powered by Fujitsu's data centres in Japan.
By bringing Oracle cloud application and platform services to Fujitsu cloud service K5, Fujitsu and Oracle will provide a high-performance cloud environment to meet the IT and business needs of customers. Specifically, Fujitsu will install the Oracle cloud services in its data centres 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 Oracle HCM cloud to gain unprecedented insight into its workforce throughout the company's worldwide network of offices.
Shingo Kagawa, SEVP, head of digital services business and CTO, Fujitsu, said: "In order to realise the full business potential of cloud computing, organisations need secure, reliable and high-performing cloud solutions. 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 organisations 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."
The combination of these solutions, including Oracle Database cloud service, Oracle HCM cloud, and K5, will enable Fujitsu and Oracle to deliver mission critical systems over a cloud environment within Fujitsu's data centres while maintaining the high levels of performance and reliability that had previously been achieved in on-premise environments.
