The Fujitsu Forum 2015 will be held May 14-15 at the Tokyo International Forum in Japan and theme of this year’s Fujitsu Forum will be Human Centric Innovation in Action.
By working with customers to build new ecosystems and realize innovation, we seek to create a prosperous future where people can live their lives in comfort and security. Fujitsu Forum 2015 will introduce new and effective ways to use ICT, including examples of Fujitsu’s own internal deployments. With rapid advances in digitalization and evolving technologies, the world is becoming ever more closely connected. In addition to enhancing people’s lives and making them more convenient, this trend is bringing significant changes to business and the management environment, presenting new opportunities for companies to grow beyond the bounds of traditional frameworks.
On the other hand, there are also numerous challenges that threaten society’s sustainability, such as issues related to food and energy supplies, urbanization, natural disasters, and economic disparity. In an effort to overcome these challenges, Fujitsu is leveraging the power of ICT.
This year marks Fujitsu’s 80th anniversary and Fujitsu Forum 2015 will highlight its accelerated drive to create innovation in a new era with the theme – Human Centric Innovation in Action. Fujitsu Forum 2015 will feature a variety of seminars and exhibits to demonstrate new ways of using ICT, including with regard to IoT, Big Data, mobile and other digital technologies.

Congratulations to Posta Srbije
Posta Srbije was founded in 1990. Today, the organization provides the largest infrastructure and logistics network in Serbia, with around 15,000 employees. Pošta Srbije was one of the first Fujitsu customers in Serbia and is currently using more than 200 active PRIMERGY servers which are driving its IT operations and business. The PRIMERGY 561 systems, for which Posta Srbije receives this award, were bought in 1996 and used as application servers for more than 10 years. Since then, they are still being used to format and prepare SCSI disk drives.
An expert jury, including Dr. Joseph Reger (CTO) and Rubert Lehner (SVP Sales Germany) met on November 3rd, thus ending the seven-week PalmSecure Innovation Contest which saw a lot of community building, submitted ideas, extensive international participation and a great deal of intensive work.
PalmSecure™ technology was enthusiastically welcomed by 380 innovative minds who contributed ideas on how to use PalmSecure and the coming ID Match system. These ideas covered a wide range of application areas where PalmSecure can improve safety and security in people’s lives, thus contributing to Fujitsu’s vision of a human centric intelligent society.
It was a difficult task to choose the best three ideas for the prizes: a Fujitsu LIFEBOOK U904 with PalmSecure sensor (first prize), a Fujitsu LIFEBOOK U574 (second prize) and a Fujitsu STYLISTIC M702 tablet computer (third prize). The range of ideas was so good that the jury even decided to award two third prizes.
The winners and the ideas are:
1st prize for Shmuel Goldfisher (Israel), integrate PalmSecure into a smart watch
2nd prize for Katherine Rushton (UK), use PalmSecure for proven parcel delivery to the correct recipient
3rd prize goes to : Suvrajit Saha (Germany), use PalmSecure to reduce train ticket fraud and also
Tizu Tiberiu (Romania), use PalmSecure to monitor drivers in fleet management
A successful workplace IT strategy is all about people. Generation Y and BYOD drive a new understanding of workplace IT, one that puts the user at the center and embraces individuality. Progressive companies realize that this new thinking boosts both productivity and employee satisfaction.
In the breakout session “The human-centric workplace” on November 20 / 12:00 p.m. my colleagues Christian and Markus as well as Jeffrey Shomper from Microsoft will prove that Fujitsu’s client computing devices are designed with the user in mind, delivering technology that empowers users to achieve their full potential.
