Fujitsu confirms its commitment to partnership approach and joins Cloud Industry Forum

Global IT Service Provider is the latest member to join the Cloud Industry Forum

The Cloud Industry Forum (CIF) has today announced that one of the largest global IT Services providers, Fujitsu, has in the UK, become the latest company to join the industry body’s growing membership roster.

Since 2009, the Cloud Industry Forum has endeavoured to help businesses seek clarity and direction through their research programmes and market insights.  CIF remains a not-for-profit organisation that aims to improve standards and educate the digital industry. It provides transparency via a Code of Practice, which helps endorse the credibility of providers, helping businesses determine the core information necessary to enable them to adopt services with confidence.

Fujitsu  is both a global technology provider and large global service provider, and so is  perfectly placed to help both service providers and end customers get the very best from cloud technology and digitally transform with connected technology services, focused on Artificial Intelligence, the Internet of Things, and Cloud - all underpinned by Security.

Through its service provider program, Fujitsu is committed to working in partnership with both existing UK based cloud service providers, as well as reselling partners who want help accelerating their transition to cloud services. This commitment is facilitated by Fujitsu’s EMEA wide ecosystem approach, which brings together expertise from Fujitsu, cloud providers, managed service providers (MSPs), application service providers (ASPs), co-location providers and more to co-create innovative new offerings for customer of all sizes.

Leigh Schvartz, Head of Cloud and MSP Offerings at Fujitsu UK is focused on growing Fujitsu’s UK service provider ecosystem and commented; “We are delighted to be working with the Cloud Industry Forum, who will help us take our service provider program and ecosystem approach to more companies providing cloud services in the UK. The vast majority of end customers expect their service providers to act as service integrators, integrating together their own and third party services to deliver a business outcome. Fujitsu can empower cloud providers to deliver on this, through our own expertise, as well as our rapidly growing ecosystem of providers” 

Commenting on the announcement, Alex Hilton, CEO of Cloud Industry Forum said, “Fujitsu is a long established and well-known business.  In an environment where trust is the imperative, they have the brand, capability and presence to further accelerate – their partner ecosystem is fundamental to this scale.”
