Fujitsu does appear to be on a bad run at the moment. The IT services firm lost its £300m plus desktop services deal with the Department of Work and pensions recently as well as a big deal with Thomson Reuters.
Both these deals were said to have problems with the supplier transitioning services from the incumbent, HP in the DWP’s case and an in-house operation at Thomson Reuters.
The Press & Journal, a Scottish publication, has written an article about it.
