Fujitsu is “Best in Cloud,” according to the German IT trade journal “Computerwoche” as it handed over the trophy for “Cloud Enabling Software”– one of seven trophies in the publication’s new “Best in Cloud” awards. Selling software solutions from the cloud offers lucrative opportunities for business in a market that is growing strongly. However, enabling independent software vendors (ISVs) to achieve these profits requires just the kind of “cloud-compliant” Cloud Enabling Software as that for which Fujitsu won the award.
Partnering with Fujitsu to achieve this win was Kendox AG, whose software implementation was used as a sample project. Based on the Business Enablement Services from Fujitsu, our software partner Kendox was able to develop a second route to market in a very short time and acquire new customers. In doing so, Kendox could introduce its product “Diperia – digital personnel files” into the cloud. A particular advantage of the solution is that the end customer can keep all personnel-relevant documents in a highly-available and secure environment in a simple, reliable and cost-effective way.
At a gala awards ceremony held in the Capitol Theater in Offenbach, the best five candidates in the seven different categories had the opportunity to briefly present their projects and compete for votes from a jury and specialist audience of their peers. On confirmation that Fujitsu’s entry is the best, Fujitsu’s Hans-Dieter Becker (Fujitsu Technology Solutions) and Thomas Gronbach (Fujitsu Enabling Software Technology GmbH), as well as Manfred Terzer from Kendox, were presented with the “Best in Cloud” trophy.
In the words of Fujitsu Technology Solutions’ Marcel Schneider: “Achieving the ‘Best in Cloud’-Award 2011 is an important indicator for us that with our range of cloud offerings we have our finger right on the pulse of the market – and that Fujitsu is taking a lead here. And it shows that Cloud Computing has long since ceased to be hype, but that we are already in the implementation phase with our customers.”
