Tomorrow Fujitsu Siemens Computers will become Fujitsu Technology Services, as Fujitsu completes its buyout of Siemens' 50 per cent share of FSC. FTS becomes Fujitsu's global storage competence centre. FTS is responsible for selling and supporting Fujitsu IT products and services in Europe, the Middle East and India, and Africa …
Now ladies and gentlemen, we see why the Fujitsu pay freeze happened. Its not the economy, its the restructuring!
Honesty it appears, is never the best policy!.
Long Live Fujitsu Siemens !
Great update. Now we know what to call the new things Thanks Chris.
Process heavy Siemens acted as a terrific counterbalance to process light Fujitsu in the early days of FSC and its a bit sad to see the passing of the partnership joint venture. Long Live FSC!
There has been terrifically incompetent top leadership within FSC from the start but i am hopeful with Kai Flore and with the newly named arrangement.
Siemens provided and provides absolutely superb site technical support across many countries for FSC especially to meet the heavy demands of top tier Enterprise Customers and others before FSC brought in Siemens ITS.
Now Fujitsu are going it alone . . . and they have never really mastered global reach.
Fujitsu face multitudinous problems across the whole business and only time will tell how successful their current strategies and actions will be.
They are often not moving fast nor proactively enough in my view.
Hiving off disk drives to Toshiba shows the weakness in storage technology.
Storage has never been an FSC and now FTS strength.
Hence EMC and NetApp as partners.
Scale does not always confer quality and although FTS and storage solution center are big there are problems running global technology from Europe rather than the US or Asia Pacific.
Good news for existing FSC customers though it may be supposed.
Eternus product for the GS21 Fuji Mainframe is Fuji's own but is nothing compared with market leading EMC DX and Hitachi's USP V and possibly even IBM DS.
Now they are using Eternus as an extend and embrace brand.
In an already highly competitive and consolidating storage supply base.
Fujitsu Sun tie up
If Sun goes to IBM or another then this may weaken both Fuji's server and storage market
Tolyo Freeze Out
Now I thought it was Fujitsu Services who set a pay freeze and this article is all about Fujitsu Siemens Computers becoming Fujitsu Technology Solutions. Of course, we all know that the only thing common to those three entities is the name Fujitsu and some corporate management-sans in Tokyo, yes?
