Fujitsu, AWS partner with a focus on enterprise digital transformation
Japanese ICT company Fujitsu announced a strategic collaboration agreement with Amazon Web Services (AWS), to accelerate the digital transformation of the mobility industry.
The Japanese firm said that this collaboration will enable Fujitsu to expand its business for companies in the mobility industry including automobile manufacturers, insurance providers, and logistics companies.
“Enterprises in the mobility space currently face a once in a century paradigm shift. They increasingly require the right digital tools to move from business models based primarily on vehicle delivery to models that provide value through mobility services utilizing vehicle data and offer new value through innovation based on CASE (Connected, Autonomous, Shared, Electric) technologies, which is expected to enable all people to travel safely and comfortably to where they want to go, and to reduce the burden on the environment,” Fujitsu said in a release.
To help accelerate this transition, Fujitsu and AWS will collaborate to develop fully managed mobility solutions, offered by Fujitsu through AWS Marketplace. This will see Fujitsu combining its digital twin and security solutions for the mobility industry with AWS’s cloud services.
Fujitsu said it will work with the AWS professional services team to help companies in the mobility industry develop and operate new systems, as well as modernize their existing systems. Fujitsu will also boost its own system development capabilities by certifying an additional 750 engineers on AWS.
Under the terms of the agreement, Fujitsu is collaborating with AWS to develop fully managed solutions centered on Fujitsu’s technologies, including the in-vehicle camera image analysis platform, Fujitsu Future Mobility Accelerator Digital Twin Analyzer, the stream data processing platform Fujitsu Future Mobility Accelerator Digital Twin Utilizer, the integrated infrastructure to support the utilization of mobility data Fujitsu Future Mobility Accelerator Digital Twin Collector, and the management center for vehicle security Vehicle-Security Operation Center (V-SOC) to help data utilization and service development for connected cars.
These solutions will not only be available directly from Fujitsu, but will also be available through the AWS Marketplace in Japan in October 2021, and globally including in Europe and North America at a future date.
Fujitsu will collaborate with AWS to help companies in the mobility industry use AWS services to develop, operate, and modernize systems for mission-critical business and mobility services. Fujitsu will initially provide this assistance in Japan from June 2021, and will subsequently roll out in global markets including in Europe and North America, the company siad.
“The rapid evolution of technology in the mobility industry can challenge companies to keep pace. Our work with Fujitsu will enable customers such as OEMs, fleet managers, and logistics companies to make better use of their data and innovate agilely and cost-effectively in the cloud,” said Bill Foy, director of worldwide automotive at AWS. “In addition, by training and certifying hundreds more of its engineers on AWS, Fujitsu is set to play a leading role in mobility managed services for years to come and help its customers continuously increase their capabilities, insights, and agility.”
