About the Fujitsu Hybrid IT Service
Customers are facing many challenges with the recent acceleration of DX and their mission-critical systems shifting to the cloud. Such challenges include the complex and highly demanding construction and operation of various IT infrastructures such as cloud and on-premise environments, the optimal placement of business systems and applications in accordance with service and security levels, as well as the ongoing optimal investment in IT assets and services.
Fujitsu Hybrid IT Service is a portfolio of solutions that combine services and technologies related to the cloud, data center, network, security, systems operation and maintenance, that Fujitsu has provided to its customers for many years. The Service will now be available in new delivery models such as prefixes and subscriptions. As a high-quality IT infrastructure supporting customers' businesses, Fujitsu Hybrid IT Service will bolster its service capabilities, including mission-critical systems, in an integrated manner, reducing operational load and related costs.
By creating a hybrid IT environment optimized for customers' businesses and offering operation services, the new solution can reduce the operational burden on IT systems by 20-30%, lower the total cost of ownership by 20~30%, and shorten the delivery time by 30-40%.

This will offer a set of services including assessment, consulting, migration, construction, and operation, which are necessary for customers to migrate their existing systems to the optimal hybrid IT environment. Based on its extensive experience and know-how, Fujitsu will take in account the customer's current situation and purpose as it offers services such as non-disruptive cloud migration.

A new management portal will be implemented to integrated control, visualize, and automate the construction and operation of different IT infrastructures such as multi-cloud and on-premise environments.

Prefix service (New: planned to be available in Q2, 2020)
