Large companies are aware of increasing energy costs and they do their best to reduce energy consumption. But on 4th December 2012 the new Energy Efficiency Guideline became effective which increases pressure on every EU member state and on more than 42.000 companies.
This is where an energy management system can help. It provides companies with reports about all kinds of energy consumption and makes them comparable by using conversions to common energy, GHG and monetary measurement units.
Fujitsu has been offering a system like this in Japan for more than 10 years. We will start to offer our new European SaaS Eco Track® from a German data center in the Fujitsu Global Cloud as of 1st April 2013. Auditors can be granted guest access to have a look at planned and implemented actions. Employees can also be made aware of their company’s environmental performance.
Take a look at the interview with Dr. Bernd Kosch from CeBIT 2013 where he has provided a lot of information about using energy management systems.

Big Data is much more than bigger storage, of course. But how can I grasp the real meaning. To find out more, I interviewed Gernot Fels, Principal Product Marketing Manager at Fujitsu who described Big Data as follows: “The objective is to predict things that will happen in the future, to take the right decisions, and to initiate the respective actions which will hopefully help to improve operations, reduce costs and minimize risks.” And the reason is to generate value for business, i.e. to gain real competitive advantages.
We all remember the days when everybody was talking about Business Intelligence (BI). And Big Data looks a little bit like BI but it’s not the same. “Nowadays, we are talking about large data volumes of various data types in the TB to PB range, all coming from versatile data sources – DB, IT logs, web logs, social media, video and audio, let alone the multitude of sensors that are installed everywhere. This data is continuously generated and needs to be analyzed at high speed in real-time.”
Big Data is not just a server, storage, middleware, network and (in-memory) database but also an end-to-end services approach which is delivered, for example by Fujitsu. A Big Data project first needs an assessment, followed by a solution design, implementation and integration, operation and maintenance. Big Data services can be obtained from the Cloud.

Mobility means being able to work anywhere, thus increasing end-user productivity and flexibility as well as contributing to a company’s competitiveness. This was general knowledge when the first notebooks were introduced decades ago.
In the meantime we are experiencing an explosion of mobile devices – notebooks, tablets and smartphones – all in a variety of formats. Various devices are used depending on the specific scenario. Analysts say that each individual could be using 3 to 4 devices every day; a figure that is expected to increase even further in the future. Applications and data must be available to the user on a continuous basis and everywhere in order to ensure maximum end-user productivity and flexibility.
Today’s flexible working models (and an increase in the significance of an employee’s work/life balance) show that the boundaries between work and private life are not carved in stone. Using the same device for work and in private use is practical and easy for the user. The digital natives are using an increasing number of private devices for professional purposes as well and this is mostly beyond the control of IT departments and the existing internal company IT infrastructures.
Virtual Client Computing enables flexible access to business applications and data from any device. It helps you overcome the challenges associated with consumer technology regarding manageability and security. It is thus mandatory for flexible and efficient employees and workplaces (e.g. for Bring Your Own Device concepts).
Fujitsu offers complete and optimal “Virtual Client Computing” solutions from a single source, thus reducing the time associated with their introduction as well as the risks and costs – irrespective of the workplace strategy and the operating concepts and technologies best suited for certain goals. As far as using future mobile systems is concerned, Fujitsu has a very wide range of workplace systems (devices, solutions and services) which are ideally suited for work and private life. Companies that use a change in their infrastructure as an opportunity to modify their procurement strategy and operating concepts can rely on Fujitsu Managed Workplace Services including Virtual Client Services.
Our Managed Mobile Service helps customers manage their mobile devices.
Fujitsu’s solutions for Virtual Client Computing, Fujitsu Managed Workplace including Virtual Client Services, Fujitsu Managed Mobile and Fujitsu’s attractive mobile devices are on show at Fujitsu’s CeBIT exhibition areas in hall 2 and hall 7. You’ve got until 9th March to pay us a visit!
Just 2 days but so much has happened – how can we put it all in one single blog text?
The highlights in Hall 2 are without doubt the waterproof tablet STYLISTIC M702 and the new LIFEBOOK E Line. Our PRIMERGY CX420 server and the corresponding DataCenter solutions have also attracted many customers to our stand. We were given a great overview of activities by our colleague Marc Albert in his video tour.
Our security solutions presented in Hall 7 in the Public Sector Parc were of great interest and the highlight is certainly the Palm Secure authentication solution. Another popular topic is SecDocs – a solution covering trustworthy archives with documents that can be used as evidence in court. Hall 2 is where Fujitsu – together with TDS – are presenting innovative solutions for SAP-HANA at the SAP stand.
And then of course our colleagues have been everywhere – for example in the CIO House, at the CeBIT Global Conference and much much more besides. We can’t wait to find out what will be happening in the next two days.
