Fujitsu Overview

FujitsuFujitsu manufactures computer products ranging from individual components through to a variety of mobile computing and PC products, server and large mainframes. Its 172,438 employees give it a global presence, although almost two-thirds of its revenue still comes from Japan.

The company started off as the spun-off telecommunications unit of a larger company, Fuji Electric. It released its first mainframes in the 1960s and gradually acquired more mainframe businesses in to the shape of ICL and Amdahl over the subsequent decades. The company had a long standing relationship with Siemens, giving it a first presence in the German market, where it maintains strong ties.

Fujitsu recently restructured and is embarking on a broad plan to integrate its businesses and boost the percentage of revenue that comes from outside of the core Japanese market. It is launching a global initiative to develop and promote a cloud computing presence, which is hoped to boost its presence in markets including Asia-Pacific and North America, where it has been under represented.
