Cloud Design, Build and Configuration

Shaping tomorrow with you

Fujitsu are looking for solutions to simplify and accelerate the design, build and configuration of their customer’s target environment.

Application Deadline - February 14th, 2021

Summary

Background

Fujitsu is one of the largest information and communication technology companies in the world and is looking for digital solutions to shape the future of society, together with their customers.

Fujitsu in Europe has a strategy to be recognised for active collaboration with startups. In Japan Fujitsu is highly regarded and is ranked fifth as a large company that actively collaborates with startups. [Nikkei, electronic edition, June 19, 2019] 

In Northern Western Europe Fujitsu’s Innovation Ecosystem framework for business and technology cooperation helps startups grow and increase engagement in fast-growing markets. 

To help our customers innovate, we are strengthening our ecosystem for Multi Cloud Services with the participation of customers, global partners, technology partners, Fujitsu’s own experts and IP, startups, and academia.  These trusted partner relationships bring in diverse thinking to benefit our customers delivering innovation through different skills and perspectives, complementing our own Fujitsu networks.

Challenge

Focusing on customers that require migration of their existing digital estate, we need to simplify and accelerate the design, build and configuration of the customer’s target environment.

With growth in the utilisation of ‘Infrastructure as Code’ as a means to build scalable and repeatable platforms, Fujitsu have already invested in developing our Springboard product, that utilises pre-built templates with guardrails in place to simplify and automate landing zone deployment.

Fujitsu are looking for a solution that can assist in the ‘prepare’ stage, which should review the customers’ existing environment, most commonly virtualised using VMware or Microsoft Hyper-V, either through the output from our assessment service or through an inbuilt discovery mechanism and produce an output that can be utilised to reproduce the environment through code e.g. YAML, JSON or ARM templates allowing the deployment into a new environment typically AWS, Azure, GCP or VMware on AWS while applying relevant guardrails and best practices.

In addition, Fujitsu would also like the new environment to be visualised and allow manipulation in order to support minor changes to the code prior to deployment.

Application Deadline: 14th February 2021
