Tokyo, September 16, 2015
Fujitsu Limited today announced that it has reached an agreement with Domo, Inc. to leverage Domo's business management platform in delivering new services and value to Fujitsu's customers.
Domo offers the world's first business management platform. It provides a real-time overview of a business by aggregating all internal and external data into one location and enabling each user to have a personalized view of the data that is most important to the way they run their business.
Through this relationship, Fujitsu will integrate its services and knowhow into the Domo platform and provide it to the Japanese market. Domo already has a strong track record, signing more than a thousand US customers.
Furthermore, Fujitsu will support customers' business innovation by connecting the Domo platform to its customers' existing systems. Fujitsu will also provide new dashboards that integrate Fujitsu services, including its Data Curation Service(1) , and offer support for deployment and operations.
Recently, in accordance with the globalization of the competitive environment and the maturation of the Japanese domestic market, many companies have been exploring their options for reforming or innovating, increasing the importance of rapid strategy planning and implementation. In order to speed up strategic planning, companies have been increasing their internal and external data usage; however, as each department has an independently optimized IT environment, issues have arisen, such as the time consumed by data collection and analysis and the mismatch between what is optimal for a department and what is optimal for the company as a whole.
As a solution to these issues, there is a need for a platform that can aggregate internal and external data into one place, enabling visualization of the indicators needed for management decisions, and thereby making real-time decision-making possible.
