Fujitsu has announced that it was recognised as a leader in the Gartner Magic Quadrant for Data Centre Outsourcing (DCO) and Infrastructure Utility Services (IUS), Europe for the fourth year in a row.
According to Gartner, to attain the coveted leadership status in a Magic Quadrant, a vendor must “execute well against its current vision and be well positioned for tomorrow.” Fujitsu’s vision is one of a Human Centric Intelligent Society, where social and business innovation is driven by the intelligent use of information and communication technology. Fujitsu’s Managed Infrastructure Services, including Cloud and Data Centre technologies, form the foundation of making this vision a reality.
Conway Kosi, Head of Managed Infrastructure Services EMEIA, Fujitsu, said, “We appreciate Gartner’s confirmation of Fujitsu’s leadership position for the fourth successive year which reflects our focus on enabling digital transformation and Hybrid IT management. Our Data Centre and Infrastructure Services not only support critical business operations for our customers but they also play a key role in enabling growth through balancing the benefits of robust and fast IT. We believe that Gartner also recognises Fujitsu’s ongoing investment in enhancing our Digital Business Platform MetaArc as one of the factors that helped secure our position as a Leader in the new Magic Quadrant.”
Fujitsu highlighted that MetaArc is designed to enable enterprises to digitalise with confidence by taking advantage of key digital capabilities such as Big Data, enterprise mobility and the Internet of Things. It also helps businesses achieve the critical balance of embracing a Hybrid IT environment; leveraging the possibilities offered by cloud-based digital solutions to drive innovation while maintaining and modernising traditional, robust systems that underpin their business operations.
Fujitsu Cloud Service K5, which is a key component of MetaArc, was also evaluated by Gartner.
