Fujitsu announces £276m investment in innovation

At the Fujitsu Forum in Munich, the Japanese powerhouse announces significant investment in its Global Delivery business

Fujitsu has today announced a €345m (£276m) investment in its Global Delivery capability over the next three years with the aim of bringing innovative new ICT services and solutions to market.

The announcement came at the Fujitsu Forum taking place in Munich this week and was part of a larger $2bn investment strategy. Since the Global Delivery offshoot of the business was established in April this year, Fujitsu has had some significant wins in helping organisations with their growth aspirations and the investment is expected to accelerate this innovation pipeline.

The Tokyo, Japan-based company unveiled its new PalmSecure ID Match solution, calling it a prime example of the ‘human-centric innovation’ coming from the continued investment. The authentication technology combines chip and pin authentication with an individual’s unique palm-vein scan to create a highly secure multi-factor security solution.

“By making a substantial investment in developing both our Global Delivery capability and innovative new services, we are focusing on positioning Fujitsu as the number one choice for organisations that are looking to transform their businesses,” said Hidenori Furuta, executive vice president of Global Delivery at Fujitsu.

“Our approach is services-focused, centred on the foundations of quality, collaboration and a dedication to understanding and serving our customers’ needs. Fujitsu’s aim is to help customers not just to adapt but to thrive as they enter the new era of digital transformation.”
