Story: Agri-cloud, food supply chain, intelligent societyThis is all about understanding how Fujitsu can help clients get a complete handle on the supply and demand sideof things, and working with them to influence demand and price-setting, all of which is enabled by cloud. We bring in Fujitsu IP and other offerings that make up the “agri-pack” (e.g., hog growers, meat packing, grocery packing, store scanners, etc.)There’s visibility to the entire chain.
Employees are virtual and mobile now more than ever. Even if they work on a campus, they still move from building to building and city to city – some country to country. Being able to extend critical decision support systems, processes, workflows and core enterprise systems functionality to a myriad of devices is quickly becoming the go-to vehicle for improving and redefining productivity. What if we could provide the ability to review and approve critical items such as payroll, time and expenses, purchase orders for goods and services, stock levels for major stores and shipping routes and volumes for a region from virtually any mobile device, anywhere, anytime?What if we could provide this and more...in seconds…providing fast and efficient delivery of only the most pertinent information…giving people back precious time to spend growing their business. What if?

What would it mean if we could make all of that happen?What would it look like?Open up for discussion:Ask individual participants what would it do for their business? Not sure you’ll be able to do this with the number of people attending…Segue into Fujitsu Americaoverview: Let’s get into what Fujitsu is doing to make these “what if’s” a reality.

We are enjoying a heightened sense of collaboration across our business … the cross pollination of resources to contribute and make a positive difference on key strategic elements … We are also experiencing the shifts and changes, bumps and bruises of a complicated economic condition – more aggressive pricing considerations – Enterprises toeing the water – only to pull it back in at a later date – well into pursuit … And the ebb and flow of a multi billion $$ business – clients that love you – clients that don’t. Big wins and disappointing losses. FOCUS on cost management, focus on margin expansion …

The Lifecycle of Innovation … begins at the core, built on our aim to “Shape tomorrow with our clients” … extends through our innovation and investments in IP …The lifecycle that encompasses this core could start with our efforts to “Engage” … Prototypes, R&D Roadmaps, Forums (like this one) and partnerships … that create conversations and enrich dialogues that help us frame and apply our thinking to and with our customers … This leads to direct delivery of value to our customers, through the solutions we enable, up and down the stack – hardware, software, services and the like …Which manifests itself in Fujitsu’s vision … Human centric – intelligent society … the way in which our solutions support this overall aim of betterment of people, betterment of the planet … Which in turn feeds our perspectives … and guides our thinking on where technology is heading , how it impacts the individual, business and society … which then engages the world and the cycle continues, all the while feeding and feeding off the core of our business …

According to Gartner’s view of Enterprise Mobility there will be a 30% growth of mobile deployments per year through 2012.This will lead to an explosion in terms of enterprise applications for all lines of business.That said, mobility and the consumerization of mobile devices today has become a veritable nightmare for IT organizations. Developers are going around CIOs and targeting department heads and business users to deploy, creating operational risks, poor governance, and the missed opportunity to leverage enterprise systems for greater efficiency and productivity.We are focusing on offering Mobile Enterprise Application Platforms (MEAP):Applications can be built once and deployed to any device (value here is that many apps have to be developed repeatedly to suit different devices).They can be built very quickly (usually in 3-6 weeks).With this speed and repeatability, IT can keep up with business demands AND drive standards in security, data models, accessibility and industry and regulatory guidelines. And we can also manage and support all of these devices – and fix them – through a central command center.
Novus is a health and Nutritional Research company focusing on animal products. As part of their business, Novus manages the bidding and sale of methionine, an amino acid that aids in the health and well being of animals. The entire bid management process was handled by field salespeople through CRM, e-mail and Excel spreadsheets, which made the entire process very complicated, clumsy and slow. This led to lost revenue in many cases and poor use of Novus sales and support resources.Novus asked Fujitsu to help design and implement a Methionine Bid application using Sybase Unwired Platform, which could be hosted in the Fujitsu cloud. The application features Bidding history and Current Activity that can be used as a strategic advantage to “zero in” quickly on a competitive bid that meets the goals of the business unit and its customers. This informs decision making at all levels including availability, demand, price-setting, etc., generating invaluable information that drives a more efficient, profitable business.The entire project was completed in a period of two months and is currently being rolled out to the entire sales force. This project led Novus to go full throttle on their mobility vision, which generated a new Mobile Sales Implementation project for Fujitsu. As part of this project Fujitsu will deploy sales functionalities (leads, opportunities,etc.) on iPad, iPhone and a host of Android Devices.
