TOKYO: Fujitsu and Box, a content management services provider, announce signing a non-binding memorandum of understanding on the context to form a strategic partnership to develop integrated solutions in the field of content management.
With this partnership Box and Fujitsu aim to develop customer relationship management (CRM), enterprise content management (ECM) and industrial specific solutions for the retail, manufacturing and public sectors. These services will leverage Fujitsu’s advanced technology features in security, mobile devices, network capability, palm vein authentication and integrate them with Box’s services.
The partnership will include Fujitsu deploying Box into its global integrated communications platform and adding an approximate of 160,000 Fujitsu employees worldwide. This would enable secure information distribution and consolidated content management between both companies. Additionally it would also curb storage expansion expenses that incur with increasing volumes of data.
Fujitsu also aims to integrate Box into FUJITSU Digital Business Platform MetaArc for Japanese customers and provide data storage services. The collaboration also intends to take the partnership between Fujitsu and Box to a global level that includes a joint investment in Asia.
"Fujitsu's objective is to bring Digital Transformation to life by creating a secure, user-friendly, and simple environment where people can thrive. Our collaboration with Box will be a big step towards making this vision a reality. This partnership will help us to provide our customers with new business opportunities by harnessing cloud-computing technologies. It fits perfectly with our strategy, and it will contribute significantly to the future of ICT,” says Hiroyuki Sakai, Corporate Executive Officer, EVP, Head of Global Marketing, Fujitsu Limited.
