"There is interest, but it is slow to mature," said Marc Silvester, corporate technology officer at Fujitsu Services. Fujitsu was in the first band of partners with KPMG, Accenture and Conchango to receive training in .net from Microsoft under its "accelerator" programme, announced in February.
Silvester believes that the key to success for .net is successful adoption of Web services. That, he said, would take time because "it is a radical change in the way that applications are developed".
The .net team at Fujitsu Services will be expanded as the market grows.
