Faster responses to changing business needs and being more cost effective at the same time is a challenge for many organizations.
To help our customers focus more on innovation, Fujitsu will work to reduce the operation and maintenance costs of their existing ICT assets and build a platform for growth through the modernization of these assets. It enables customers to divert their investments from operations and maintenance to innovation and growth.
The Application Value Assessment (AVA) is a strategic consulting assignment, and it's the first step towards your Application/Legacy Modernization project.
