Fujitsu to Boost Cloud Computing Service

Interview of Jiji Press Service (English News) with Mr. Masami Yamamoto, Corporate Senior President of Fujitsu Ldt.
(PresseBox) (Tokyo, ) Fujitsu Ltd. hopes to increase sales in cloud computing business in Japan to one trillion yen in fiscal 2015, its president said Tuesday. The company had 38 billion yen in sales from the Internet-based software and solution service in Japan in fiscal 2010 that ended in March. The company also hopes to achieve 300 billion yen in sales from the service overseas in fiscal 2015, Fujitsu President Masami Yamamoto said in an interview.

Fujitsu intends to invest in technology and software that help clients to extract useful information from an enormous amount of data on agriculture, medicine and other areas, Yamamoto said. Amazon.com Inc., International Business Machines Corp. and other U.S. companies lead cloud computing. Against such rivals, Fujitsu's strength is in highly stable services almost free of system breakdowns, Yamamoto said. Fujitsu will make further efforts to offer clients sophisticated services, he said. Yamamoto said his company plans to raise the ratio of smartphones in its handset business to 60 pct in fiscal 2012 from 40 pct at present.

Fujitsu plans to sell handsets that run on Google Inc.'s Android and Microsoft Corp.'s Windows Phone software and are built for the Japanese market in the United States and Europe, he said.
