    Must-Read IT Blog

    Fujitsu RunMyProcess  is a Platform as a Service (PaaS) solution that allows you to build, integrate & run workflow-based applications. I think it’s pretty great, but I work for RunMyProcess so that’s a given.


    Luckily, James Elkington (Systems Manager at I HEART Studios) seems to agree. In this video, he explains how the business simply couldn’t operate without RunMyProcess.




    Last week, I was incredibly pleased to find out that Fujitsu RunMyProcess has been named the finalist in the“PaaS Solution of the Year” category at the 2014 Storage Virtualisation Cloud awards. Our nomination is supported by our successes with both I HEART Studios (UK) and RATP (France).


    The SVC awards are voted for by the public and recognize the best companies, products, projects and services operating in the cloud, virtualization and storage sectors.


    It would be great if you could help us receive the award by submitting your vote for Fujitsu RunMyProcess at SVC: www.svcawards.com/voting.php (PaaS Solutions of the Year category).


    The public vote closes on November 9 and we’re looking forward to seeing how we do when the winners are announced on November 27, 2014.


    Many thanks in advance.

    New VMware VMmark 2.5 benchmarks demonstrate Fujitsu’s virtualization and efficiency pre-eminence with new world records in two categories: Performance with Server Power and for Performance with Server and Storage Power. VMware VMmark 2.5 allows the measurement of power usage while running the full application and infrastructure workloads across a multi-host cluster by providing the already established “Performance only” as well as the new “Performance with Server Power” and “Performance with Server and Storage Power” test types. Within both measurements the PRIMERGY RX2540 M1 delivered outstanding result. Also in the „Performance only“ measurement of the VMmark 2.5 benchmark, the PRIMERGY RX2540 M1 showcased world-class proficiency in performing common platform-level workloads such as live migration of virtual machines, cloning and deploying virtual machines, and automatic virtual machine load balancing across the data center for customers’ virtualization needs.


    The results achieved with the PRIMERGY RX2540 M1 underline once more the top-class performance in VMmark benchmarks achieved with previous PRIMERGY systems in former times: beside its virtualization power they provide market leading efficiency. In numbers the results show a brilliant score of 25.2305@22Tiles for Performance with Server Power and 20.8067@22Tiles for Performance with Server and Storage Power, outperforming the second best by 42% and 63%, respectively.


    • Most efficient virtualization platform in “Performance with Server Power” on VMmark 2.5 benchmark
    • Most efficient virtualization platform in “Performance with Server and Storage Power” on VMmark 2.5 benchmark
    • Most powerful two-socket virtualization platform with matched-pair configuration in “Performance Only” on VMmark 2.5 benchmark






    Fujitsu’s comprehensive line-up of Integrated Systems help IT organization to make immediate progress in focusing on end-user needs in moving towards the data center becoming more business centric. Therefore we offer a broad portfolio of services and tools, as well as reference architectures and ready-to-run solutions such as Fujitsu vShape or Fujitsu Integrated System Appliance for VMware EVO: RAIL to help customers shrink project times and keep costs down.

    On September 1st, FUJITSU and HYVE, an innovation company, collaboratively launched an international idea contest, which aims to explore new fields of application for Fujitsu’s PalmSecureTM technology with a special interest in a match-on-device system


    I am using this channel to give you some information about the contest itself, its development and the technology behind PalmSecureTM.


    What is the contest about?


    PalmSecure™ is a highly reliable biometric authentication system based on palm vein pattern recognition technology. It features industry-leading authentication accuracy with extremely low false acceptance/rejection rates. The palm vein scan is easy to use and offers robust functionality – hand size, skin condition, color or minor injuries do not affect it. It combines the security of a bodily characteristic covered by the skin (and therefore highly secure against fraud) with the convenience of touchless and hygienic operation.The sensor detects the pattern of the flowing blood in the palm of your hand with infrared light. This pattern is extremely unique and therefore palm vein recognition accuracy is much more reliable than other biometric technologies. Compared to a fingerprint sensor, PalmSecure™ has a false acceptance rate which is more than 100 times lower.




    We decided to contact the HYVE AG, experts in the field of open innovation, to profit from their simple, yet successful business model: the “wisdom of the crowd”! A lot of great ideas of the past were not the product of a single brain, rather the result of a dynamic interaction between many, everybody contributing their own thoughts.Consumers are involved in the innovation process not only as “passive recipient of benefits” but rather as “active co-designer”. We want to use that “wisdom of the crowd” at the FUJITSU PalmSecure™ Innovation Contest in order to find answers to the following questions:



    1) What are the application areas for a match-on-device system with Fujitsu PalmSecure™ technology?


    2) Which use cases can you imagine in fields such as government, finance, enterprise, automotive, retail, energy, industry 4.0 or others for this technology?


    3) How can the device appear in the different usage scenarios?


    4) Where can the Fujitsu PalmSecure™ sensor technology be applied in general?


    The statistics of the contest support our decision:


    Despite the fact that the contest is barely 4 weeks old we already reached impressive numbers; 221 ideas, 307 comments and more than 238 registered members clearly demonstrate a tremendous interest in the topic. Currently people from over 84 different nations visited the website and got to know the technology causing the visitor’s brand awareness to grow rapidly. These impressive statistics can only be reached because of a good community management and – most importantly- because of an active participation of the contest’s experts. The group of Experts consists of 9 Fujitsu employees in leading positions who use their specific know-how to evaluate and comment on the user’s ideas in order to encourage and motivate them to optimize their postings and to inspire the community.


    Since I am one of the Experts it would be my particular pleasure to welcome you to the community because I am sure that you can come up with a lot of creative and innovative ideas, supporting us and Fujitsu in shaping the future!
