The Fujitsu World Tour arrives in Johannesburg next week, focusing on digital co-creation.
Now in its 10th year, the Fujitsu World Tour is visiting 22 countries on six continents, highlighting how Fujitsu is partnering with customers to co-create the digital future.
Around the world, organisations are grappling with the reality of digital disruption. “This disruption is driving sweeping changes across business landscapes in every market segment, leading to new challenges that all organisations simply have to address with their digital agenda for the future,” says Steven Kramer, organiser of the South African leg of the Fujitsu World Tour.
“As a consequence, enterprises and government departments alike are recognising that underlying IT infrastructure and processes must become highly adaptable, mobile, secure and scalable.”
The Fujitsu World Tour shows users how Fujitsu is tackling these challenges. “We’ll be demonstrating innovative, holistic solutions that encompass and enhance existing technologies and investments,” Kramer says.
These solutions are grouped into themes that address industry megatrends like cybersecurity, artificial intelligence (IoT) and the Internet of Things (IoT).
The themes for this year’s event are:
* Enabling Digital – A modernised digital ecosystem can deliver true business value. Fujitsu delivers an end-to-end digital modernisation approach, integrating the back office with front office customer experience. This enables organisations to achieve end-to-end digital transformation of their business processes with confidence, faster and with less risk.
* Digital Co-Creation – Co-creation means bringing together unconnected areas of expertise to find the insights and ideas to drive digital transformation forward, taking an open attitude to what the best outcomes can be.
* Mobilising the Enterprise – Fujitsu’s Digital Workplace brings together next generation workplace services, client computing devices, service desk and technical support services.
* Infrastructure for the Digital World – Digital transformation will significantly increase the amount of data which must be transferred, processed and stored. Enterprise IT must become highly adaptable and massively scalable. Fujitsu provides the right choice of new technologies and approaches, such as software-defined, converged and hyperconverged IT based on a portfolio of server, storage, integrated systems, as well as technologies sourced from market-leading partners.
* Cybersecurity – How can organisations prepare for and respond to any security issues and implement robust security controls to comply with regulations and to protect data? The Fujitsu World Tour will address a wide range of IT security challenges through live demonstrations. Leading security partners will also be on hand.
* Hyperconnected Business – A hyperconnected business brings together people, information and things to fundamentally change the way an organisation operates, to act faster and change for the better.
The Fujitsu World Tour will include four elements:
* High-level keynotes from Fujitsu executives, customers, partners, futurists and industry experts;
* Breakout sessions with industry experts;
* One-on-one expert talks that drill into individual business topics and challenges; and
* An exhibition area where Fujitsu and its partners will present their latest products, solutions and services.
The Fujitsu World Tour will be held on 31 August at The Forum in Bryanston.
