Augmented reality (AR), which shows actual information, such as images, by superimposing ICT information, such as pictures and letters, is already being used in, for example, the entertainment industry or marketing.
Here at Fujitsu Forum we are demonstrating how AR is used to carry out business by sharing information with office staff members, displaying work instructions superimposed on actual articles, visualizing the task histories and matters exchanged by people in charge, and completing tasks in the field by entering information. Fujitsu supports customers in changing their work styles based on the technical knowledge that we have accumulated via practical work both inside and outside the company and by using smart devices and AR to do business.
First held in 1993 Fujitsu Forum Tokyo is Fujitsu’s largest private customer event. In 2014 Fujitsu Forum will be celebrating 21 years and in this time the event has expanded globally and now hosts forums in Europe (Germany) and China.
Fujitsu Forum Tokyo will be held between 14th-16th May 2014 at the Tokyo International Forum in Japan. We expect 12,000 IT decision-makers and experts from around the world to attend and it will feature a variety of seminars and demonstrations for new initiatives across all industries in which ICT is used.
So whether you’re attending our event in Tokyo in person or following it online, here are all the necessary tools

The German Data Center Award was hard-fought once again. Many companies submitted their most innovative ideas to gain attention and success. Fujitsu participated in the competition and – hope you remember our success in 2013 with Fujitsu Energy Management in the Data Center – was shortlisted amongst the finalists in 2014!
Fujitsu participated with “Fujitsu Data Center Management & Automation – Automated Contingency Manual” in the data center software category and came in closely after GORDIS GmbH and VMware.
This rank in the German Data Center Award rewards our ideas and efforts in the field of Data Center Management & Automation.
Want to know more about our submission to the competition? Data Center contingency manuals are required by the ITIL standard and describe processes that have to be followed and executed in emergency cases. The goal is to recover business continuity as fast as possible. In many data centers contingency manuals are printed issues. With our automation solution the processes necessary to counter emergency cases can be automated across operating system and department boundaries and in cases of emergency the processes run automatically and support the emergency managers.
Automated emergency processes avoid manual errors and increase process quality, the guarantee the adherence to escalation procedures and ensure documentation of all activities – and most importantly they accelerate human/machine interaction and allow operating data centers more efficiently, securely and at lower cost.
We have developed the “Fujitsu Data Center Management & Automation – Automated Contingency Manual” together with our partners CA Technologies and TDS for usage in heterogeneous data centers. Our solution offers the integration of operations management with sensor and measurement technologies for buildings and systems. It takes into account the current status of the IT infrastructure and process landscape while flexibly allowing stepwise enhancements to innovative automation concepts.

CeBIT 2014 has opened its doors for experts and companies from all over the world and I would like to tell you briefly what has happened so far and tell you about the “hits” on the Fujitsu Stand which you should not miss.
A lot of attention before the official CeBIT start was given to our new mobile devices which visitors, journalists and bloggers have been trying out.
The Fujitsu LIFEBOOK U904 Ultrabook™ with 4G/LTE is certainly one of these mobile highlights. The thinnest Business Ultrabook in the 14“ category has been nominated as a “CeBIT Highlight Product“ and is the world’s first Ultrabook which has integrated non-contact, biometric security technology as an option: the Fujitsu Palm Vein Sensor. If you want to learn more about the LIFEBOOK U904, please follow our “Insider blog” here
Olaf Leis (Lower-Saxony State Minister for the Economy, Employment and Transport) visited us at our CeBIT stand in hall 7 on Monday evening – and the focus of his visit was our Palm Secure technology. He took a good look at the “Secure Gate“ which manages really secure access. Authentication of a person’s identity is via the non-contact recognition of the unique vein pattern in an individual’s hand.
Today the Intel Innovation Award for a new concept in data center technology was awarded. Jens-Peter Seick, Senior Vice President of the Fujitsu Product Development Group received the prize on our behalf.
And there are lots of new features for Fujitsu vShape!
The proven vShape reference architecture from Fujitsu integrates now NetApp Clustered Data ONTAP. The virtualization platform vShape is based on Fujitsu x86 PRIMERGY servers, switches from Brocade as well as NetApp Storage systems. It offers companies a shared scale-out infrastructure which is more flexible and is ideally suited to handle the almost unlimited growth in a company’s data volume.

That is just some of the highlights on our CeBIT stand. If you want to see more, you have until Friday – we look forward to seeing you in Hall 7, A28.
At Fujitsu Forum we are introducing, together with the Fraunhofer Gesellschaft, an “Intelligent Desk”. Fraunhofer is Europe’s largest application-oriented research organization with a strong focus on people’s needs, e.g. health, security, communication, energy and the environment.
This Intelligent Desk acts as the front-end device for a wide range of End User Services and shows the latest technology used in ergonomic and efficient working. It covers state-of-the-art illumination concepts as well as current ergonomic furniture technology. The Intelligent Desk integrates Fujitsu’s IT know-how and demonstrates our UC&C solutions live. You can see that the workplace of the future is almost cable-free. Touch functions and gesture control are also fully integrated together with digital import options for analog documents so that they can be processed further.
We invite all visitors to experience the future of workplaces first hand at the Democenter (Innovation area). We have prepared some interesting showcases, where we would like to invite you to join us on a journey to a Reshaped Workplace.
