- The modern organisation needs ever more flexibility to stay ahead. It is essential you have the agility to respond more effectively to greater demands and emerging opportunities.
- Technology is the enabler of the change that’s required. But to get there, it must overcome the constraints dictated by resources and budgets. Not to mention the inflexible way your technology infrastructure has inevitably evolved.
- User expectations are rising all the time. They want an enhanced experience that makes working painless and seamless. They want to use their own devices, work in new ways and in different places. And that’s equally good for your business.
- A more productive workforce, getting more out of a working day. Working in homes, in trains and ultimately in square footage that you’re not paying for. But only as long as issues of security, governance and compliance have been resolved.
- As specialists in enterprise integration we realise that the challenge posed to you by the changing world can’t simply be solved by a few clever apps, a new device, or a vague notion of anywhere working.
- It’s a fundamental question of infrastructure…about how you shape that infrastructure…about how you access it. Indeed, it’s about how you make your communications and applications work with the kind of agility that could change the way your organisation operates.
- The Fujitsu Unified Workspace has the answer to all these questions and more. And the experience for you is simplicity itself
- Fujitsu Unified Workspace enables you to reshape your organisation by providing a single point of access to your applications, data and communications via a secure virtualised environment.
- At anytime, from anywhere, on any device. It’s a new and simplified alternative to traditional approaches to desktop and communication services provision. It makes it possible for you to deliver all the computing and communications capabilities your end-users need in a trusted and secure enterprise-class virtualised environment.
- The result? You can maximise the potential of the very latest technology – within a fully integrated, seamless and unified experience.
- Our model will help you to cut your costs significantly. But Unified Workspace is about much more than that. It’s about transforming your IT to stay ahead of the changing needs of your organisation – not to mention the changing culture.

- Organisations today are rapidly moving towards ‘as a service’ type models for more and more aspects of their infrastructure.
- These models are attractive because they need no capital expenditure upfront, and offer pay-as-you-go structures delivered via secure and reliable cloud-based services.
- This means that technology refreshes are no longer about replacing old kit with faster and slicker machines,but about creating agile, on-demand platforms that ensures your business is ready for change. In the end user space, the timing couldn’t really be any better…
Approaching your refresh :
The recent global economic crisis saw a large number of organisations delaying investments, cancelling IT projects and extending the life of their existing assets. A large number of PC systems in the enterprise world are now out of warranty,and costing companies more to maintain than to replace with new models.
- Beyond the immediate need for the refresh itself, there are wider cultural and business issues to take into account that make the argument for a new approach even more compelling.Technology refreshes of all kinds need to be considered in light of the drive towards a new, vibrant approach to flexibility in the work place. What’s more, these rapidly evolving changes in today’s corporate environment mean that ITdepartments are facing more challenges in end user management than ever before.
- The old approach to refresh will fail to meet these challenges In the recent past, IT departments have looked to manage these issues by reducing complexity through the standardisation of hardware and software.This helped reduce costs in managing physical PCs, while also cutting labour costs when deploying new operating systems and applications.
Your next step :
Many organisations now need to make choices about how they are going to tackle technology refresh issues. We think the time is right to look at how well the old “one-size-fits-all” approach meets both the long-term needs of the users, and the flexibility that organisations need going forward.
For many, the answer will be that they can no longer concentrate on standardising their hardware and software, but must also think about standardising the policies and processes that support new ways of working. IT departments need to look for new ways of managing and supporting the increasing diversity they are faced with, while still managing the associated costs.
The Fujitsu approach
- « Many are considering either the traditional upgrade path to physical desktops, or using desktop virtualisation to give them an opportunity to develop their systems in a completely different way which provides more flexibility for end users and the readiness to make more use of cloud computing if and when they need it. »
Roy Illsley Senior Analyst, Ovum.
- At Fujitsu, we understand the adoption issues around desktop virtualisation just as well as we do the end-to-end requirements for traditional ‘classic’ end user services. We have taken a journey to the new world of ‘as a service’ models, and acknowledge that they could truly transform the way that organisations think about desktop services in the future. However, we understand that many organisations have evaluated Desktop Virtualisation but have largely found it only applicable to a small proportion of their end users.
- Our solution has been proven to deliver a much wider and faster adoption – an approach that is able to transform the whole estate in a way that is scalable and really drives business value. The key is to recognise that ‘one size does not fit all’ and that exploiting any combination of these approaches should be considered as part of a broader solution to delivering a cost-effective, higher quality and more agile service. A balance must be struck between the business demands for control, and users’ demands for flexibility. That’s why our approach – based on our extensive experience in delivering tailored desktop services – meets both the needs of individual organisations, and their people.
- Assessment – our process begins with a comprehensive and knowledgeable assessment of your organisation’s technology, applications and user environments. We also use a comprehensive ROI model developed through real experiences in client engagements – to identify both long-term and ‘quick win’ cost savings.
- Profiling – the assessment data we capture is then used to create a set of user role mappings across the organisation, where application types as well as data and service access needs are mapped. The result is a set of build models which we use to create common, standardised technology roles that reduce operational cost, and provide commonality across many users.
- User engagement – we recognise the human side of any implementation, and use the profile data to provide a positive user experience through relevant user training and support.
- Planning – Fujitsu then creates comprehensive, informed delivery plans that enable us to realise cost savings in a short time frame – and at minimal risk to your organisation.

Customers can also rest assured that the Fujitsu portfolio is capable of handling any kind of end user service and includes every aspect of the desktop lifecycle – from procuring and managing thick and thin clients, delivering hosted applications and virtual desktops, providing managed print services, desk-side support and Service Desk services, to the responsible disposal or redeployment of technology at end-of-life.
Si l’utilisation du Cloud pour des environnements de production SAP Hana apparaît encore prématurée pour SAP, la solution est déjà attractive pour la mise en place d’environnement de test (Proof of Concept) ou de développement.
- Depuis 2012, une solution Cloud de SAP Hana est proposée par Amazon Web Services pour des accès limités et de petites envergures. Difficile de démontrer avec plus de pertinence les accointances de la base de données en mémoire de SAP avec l’informatique en nuage. De son côté, SAP lui-même, commence à proposer des variantes Cloud de Hana et vient de rejoindre les projets OpenStack (IaaS) et Cloud Foundry (PaaS).
- Si une approche Cloud de SAP Hana en production permet sur le papier de réduire les temps de déploiement, de lisser les coûts dans le temps et de transférer l’investissement en Opex, elle reste à ce jour peu employée par les entreprises. En cause : les risques que courent les données hébergées sur des sites distants qui ne sont pas sous le contrôle de leur propriétaire. Sans oublier les difficultés d’intégration avec les ressources locales du SI de l’entreprise utilisatrice.
Le Cloud pour les tests
- Au printemps dernier, Fujitsu a conclu un accord de partenariat avec oXya, spécialiste français de l’infogérance SAP qui héberge les environnements de plus de 200 clients de l’éditeur d’outre Rhin. Fujitsu-oXya propose une plateforme Cloud en PaaS pour réaliser un PoC (Proof of Concept) Hana.
- Sans impacter les infrastructures cibles, cette offre permet, sur une durée de trois mois, de mettre en place un environnement Hana entièrement sécurisé que les utilisateurs font évoluer et paramètrent à leur rythme afin d’évaluer ses potentiels.
- Cette prise en compte par Fujitsu des versions en nuage de Hana lui permet, d’une part, d’apporter à ses clients des prestations de PoC qui se distinguent par leur vitesse de mise en place et leur rapport prestations/prix et, d’autre part, de développer son expertise sur ce type d’environnements afin d’apprécier la pertinence de leur adoption en production. Situés en France, un des pays européens avec l’Allemagne ou la législation est la plus stricte en matière de protection des données, les Datacenters de Oxya lui permettent de répondre aux attentes de ses clients en la matière.
