Fujitsu and Oracle Team Up to Drive Cloud Computing in Japan

Oracle and Fujitsu have agreed to form a new strategic alliance to deliver enterprise-grade cloud services to customers in Japan and their subsidiaries around the world. To help organizations in Japan confidently move enterprise workloads to the cloud, Oracle Cloud Application and Platform services – such as Oracle Database Cloud Service and Oracle Human Capital Management (HCM) Cloud – will be powered by Fujitsu’s data centers in Japan.

Fujitsu will install the Oracle Cloud services in its datacenters in Japan and connect them to its K5 service in order to deliver enterprise-grade cloud services. The first Oracle Cloud Application that will be offered to Fujitsu customers under the joint offering is Oracle HCM Cloud.

Under the new strategic alliance, Fujitsu will work to drive sales of these cloud offerings to companies in Japan and their subsidiaries around the world. As part of the agreement, Fujitsu will also implement Oracle HCM Cloud to gain insight into its workforce throughout the company’s worldwide network of offices.

Oracle is a leader in Japan’s database market segment and possesses strong capabilities in the SoR domain. Now, as we look to strengthen MetaArc and K5, taking part in this strategic alliance with Oracle will work to meet the cloud needs of our customers.”

Since entering into a database OEM contract in 1989, the two companies have been providing customers with optimized solutions. Currently, as an Oracle Partner Network (OPN) Diamond level partner, Fujitsu is also providing systems integration services worldwide.

“We strongly believe this cloud alliance will support Japanese companies to drive digital transformation,” said Hiroshige Sugihara, President and CEO, Oracle Corporation Japan. “This will be a gateway for customers to achieve standardization, modernization, and globalization. This initiative will differentiate us from other cloud providers by emphasizing real enterprise cloud solutions, while offering Japanese companies access to best of breed technology in the new Cloud era.”
