Microsoft and Fujitsu have signed a five-year agreement that will significantly contribute to the growth of the Fujitsu Uvance business, which develops sustainable solutions that are powered by Microsoft cloud technology for organisations across the manufacturing, retail, healthcare and public sector industries.

Uvance aims to quickly respond to rapid changes in the environment by providing sustainable solutions and encouraging environmentally friendly practices.

As part of the agreement, Microsoft has been named as a premier Cloud Partner for Fujitsu and will help to develop and bring to market Fujitsu Uvance solutions, including Fujitsu: Sustainable Manufacturing, Fujitsu: Consumer Experience, Fujitsu: Healthy Living, and Fujitsu: Trusted Society. All of these solutions will be built on Microsoft cloud technology to deliver more reliable, more secure and faster operations.

“Fujitsu is thrilled to embark on this strategic partnership with Microsoft, which represents an important step to realise Fujitsu’s corporate purpose – to make the world more sustainable by building trust in society through innovation,” said Takahito Tokita, president and CEO of Fujitsu. “Microsoft’s trusted cloud platform and advanced artificial intelligence capabilities uniquely position us to accelerate the global development and deployment of innovative offerings that draw on our own technologies like computing and AI, as well as our extensive expertise in several key industries. We look forward to further deepening this relationship to realise true ‘Sustainability Transformation’ in the months and years ahead.”

The partnership will also see Microsoft and Fujitsu deliver joint skilling initiatives to enable cloud sales and engineering training and certification for 28,000 Fujitsu employees over the next five years across regions in America, Asia, Europe and Japan.

“We have an opportunity to help organisations in every industry apply the latest innovations across the cloud and this new generation of AI to accelerate business growth and operate more sustainably,” said Satya Nadella, chairman and CEO of Microsoft. “We look forward to deepening our partnership and bringing together the end-to-end power of the Microsoft Cloud with Fujitsu’s industry expertise to help our mutual customers address business and societal challenges.”
