Fujitsu has been named a leader by Gartner in its latest Magic Quadrant for Data Center Outsourcing and Hybrid Infrastructure Managed Services, Europe.[1] This represents the eighth consecutive year that Fujitsu has achieved this position.

Fujitsu’s Multi-Cloud & Hybrid IT portfolio, synonymous with its “Your Multi-Cloud” approach, enables customers to become highly connected, intelligent and transformed through a combination of infrastructure, applications and service transformation. Fujitsu believes that its repeat placement by Gartner as a leader in the Magic Quadrant for Data Center Outsourcing and Hybrid Infrastructure Managed Services, Europe validates this portfolio and approach – particularly in addressing common challenges faced by organisations as they look to harness the power of cloud to migrate, modernise and innovate rapidly.

Gartner evaluates European service providers’ ability to execute, which Fujitsu believes highlights its combination of decades of experience managing critical on-premises architectures, wide-ranging expertise in multiple clouds and a portfolio of global strategic partnerships. The Magic Quadrant evaluation also explores “completeness of vision”. Fujitsu feels its positioning in this area not only indicates its focus on addressing unique and emergent customer needs through a co-creative approach, but also its investment in innovative and disruptive services, such as robotic process automation, IOT and blockchain, to deliver rapid results.

Increased focus on rapidly evolving customer requirements

Fujitsu continues to increase its focus on addressing the rapid evolution of customer requirements – with a shift from enhancing efficiency to the desire for major transformation. Publicly available customer testimonials praise Fujitsu’s commitment to customer experience and partnership, and its expertise and flexibility. Customers also score Fujitsu highly for its focus on secure hosting, migration support and data centre reliability.

Over the past 12 months, multiple significant customer cloud projects implemented by Fujitsu include the introduction of a cloud-driven global digital workplace and managed infrastructure services framework for the technology group Wärtsilä,an entirely new infrastructure for Finnish pension provider Keva to accelerate and manage DevOps for new business-critical applications on Microsoft Azure, and a project with Rice Exchange to leverage the cloud and emerging technologies to implement the world’s first global blockchain-based rice trading platform. Delivered by Fujitsu, these large enterprises have successfully harnessed the power of the cloud to become connected and therefore more efficient; more intelligent, resulting in greater competitiveness through enhanced services; and transformed, with the ability to disrupt global market sectors, through accelerated innovation.

Sanjeev Kamboj, Head of Multi-Cloud at Fujitsu North West Europe, comments: “I believe this latest recognition by Gartner that Fujitsu is a leader for Data Center Outsourcing and Hybrid Infrastructure Managed Services in Europe reflects how we continue to proactively evolve and develop our multi-cloud service and solution offerings to anticipate customers’ rapidly evolving needs. Many businesses demand business transformation and expect results fast, but struggle with the complexity of making it happen.

“Fujitsu’s ability to deliver an accelerated time-to-results and enable customers to overcome challenges across areas such as cloud migration, service integration and applications modernisation has been critical for our customers,” continues Kamboj. “During the COVID era, we have seen a greater than usual need to flex and respond to unpredictable market change. We approach every customer project collaboratively, with solutions that reflect not only a customer’s multi-cloud maturity, but also the most suitable platforms for their needs. As a result, our customers have complete confidence that their multi-cloud or hybrid approach is the best possible fit to achieve their business objectives.”
