Japanese multinational conglomerate Fujitsu has announced its decision to form an  “absorption-type merger” of its public cloud business aimed at optimizing its services and promoting transparency.

As part of these efforts, Fujitsu has decided to absorb and merge FJCT, which has been engaged in public cloud business (NIFCLOUD and FJcloud-V) and to promote the swift implementation of the latest technologies in cloud services and further increase transparency, security and reliability.

The company is planning to do this by combining FJCT’s advanced development technology in cloud services with its service delivery capabilities for enterprises. 

Fujitsu’s cloud services in Japan feature a range of offerings such as Infrastructure-as-a-Service (IaaS), Platform-as-a-Service (PaaS), hosting services, email-as-a-service and backend operations for mobile applications. 

With this merger, Fujitsu plans to enhance the stability and quality of its cloud services, which serve as a platform underpinning its customers’ digital transformation efforts and align with the Business Model and Portfolio Strategy the company set forth in its medium-term management plan announced in May 2023.

With Fujitsu’s purpose revolving around making the world more sustainable by building trust in society through innovation, this step can help the company further contribute to the realization of a more sustainable society by delivering platforms that support services to enrich people’s lives.

The news was announced alongside Fujitsu’s financial release for the fiscal year ended March 31, 2023, which saw the company reach consolidated revenues of 3.7tn yen (US$28bn) reinforcing its position as the top digital services company in Japan by market share.

In September, Fujitsu also launched a new offering to support sustainable enterprise transformation as Japan’s first premium supplier for RISE with SAP.

As part of this announcement, Fujitsu said that it will develop and launch a comprehensive cloud ERP solution that supports sustainable transformation of enterprises, making it the first SAP partner from Japan to offer business transformation, technical managed services and infrastructure in connection with RISE with SAP.
