Sorry, the world is not always good. We need data protection and for this we need access protection, identity recognition and so on. Many security measures are necessary, but this is not always amusing for the user. The requirement alone to remember many pins and passwords is a pain. One way to solve this dilemma is the solution that OpenLimit SignCubes presented at the CeBIT 2013. The OpenLimit solution truedentity uses a single backend for enabling trustworthy, secure and provable electronic processes. The frontend technologies range from secure to highly secure and from software-protected to hardware-protected identities. An example is the Palm Secure devices from Fujitsu, which measure and analyzes a person’s vein structure in a contact-free manner.
Many interesting solutions are thus possible, which Fujitsu realizes based on the software development competence of OpenLimit and its own consultants and know-how.
An example of a big customer project realized by OpenLimit and Fujitsu is the implementation of the long-term, evidentiary-value preserving solution “Fujitsu SecDocs powered by OpenLimit” for the Federal Labor Department in Germany.
Have a look at the interview with Marc Gurov, which he gave at CeBIT 2013 in Hannover:
Year on year, Experton Group publishes the Cloud Vendor Benchmark and ranks with it the key players in the German cloud market. Last week, the German analyst published its 4th edition of the independent annual benchmark study, and Fujitsu remains one of the key players.
A rigorous process:
During a three-month research process (which concluded at CeBIT 2013) over 500 providers were examined and at the end 133 providers were classified as relevant. These were then analyzed and evaluated in 14 categories. Fujitsu was ranked as a leader in six categories, including all variations of Infrastructure as a Service and our ability to deliver cloud services for the midmarket and SMBs, better known as the “Mittelstand” – the backbone of Germany’s economic strength.
Validating the Fujitsu Cloud:
“The global delivery capabilities of Fujitsu is one of the most important cornerstones in the fight for corporate customers,” says Experton. “By continually expanding its public cloud IaaS offerings and accompanying enabling measures for customers and partners, Fujitsu belongs again in 2013 to the leading IaaS providers for corporate customers. Experton Group believes that Fujitsu will continue to pursue its cloud strategy and will continue to invest, providing enterprise customers an appropriate safeguard in their cloud investments for the coming 2-5 years.”
Daring a short view into the near future:
Experton predicts cloud spending in Germany for the current year to be 4.61 Billion Euro, about 5% of the country’s total business IT spend. Just to put it into perspective: this makes cloud about four times bigger than the mainframe business (IT’s proud wunderkind where entry systems start at about a million Euros). The German cloud market is expected to be about 10 Billion Euro in 2015. Experton claims “cloud is now for the masses, shifting away from the early-adopters and entering into the IT-mainstream”… but we at Fujitsu have always been saying this…

The only thing what IT users need is a working IT department which delivers high quality services. But this is not as easy as it seems to be. Employees have to show more and more flexibility and action. They shall use ERP and CRM on the road and get their needed information on the fly. And the kind of collaboration is also changing, Unified and Instant Messaging are coming up, and the consciousness for Social Networking and Conferencing systems is growing. All of it can be realized only if the IT department has the know-how and the resources to deliver new and more services. In this case, Managed Services can help. End users can benefit from Fujitsu’s special offering. This includes not only the elements of a modern Collaboration but also of the operation of a standard IT workplace consisting of a PC, printer and software.
The Managed Services can be delivered on-premise using customers’ or Fujitsu’s hard- and software. But it is also possible to use the needed datacenter resources as a Cloud Service – either Private or Public Cloud.

Yes it’s true. Cloud stores are important, they gather together many different kinds of as-a-service offerings. Thanks to these stores small software vendors are able to find their way into big companies. Fujitsu knows that this works due to its own store called Fujitsu Cloud Store. But this is only one side of the coin. On the other side is the requirement at the IT department to manage the whole IT operation – without interruption. Fortunately IT managers get help of Fujitsu‘s Cloud Store Enterprise Edition. Now they can introduce an own cloud store in the company which has one surface for all different IT services of the company.
See what Dr. Wolfgang Ries, Chief Marketing Officer of Fujitsu Enabling Software Technology GmbH, a Fujitsu subsidiary, says in his interview on CeBIT 2013. The heart of this solution is the management software which Fujitsu has been using since November 2011 in its own Cloud Store.
Have a look into the video interview with Dr. Wolfgang Ries
The motor of Fujitsu‘s Cloud Store Enterprise Edition is the so-called Service Catalog Manager, have a look into the data sheet (http://www.fujitsu.com/downloads/SYSWLK/pdf/ds-ctmg-v15-ww-en.pdf ) or into some slides (http://www.fujitsu.com/downloads/SYSWLK/pdf/ps-ctmg-v15-intro-ww-en.pdf ).
