back to article Fujitsu gets ready to eat its own dogfood as company-wide digital transformation project kicks off

Japanese computing veteran Fujitsu is embarking on a company-wide digital transformation, including a particularly complex-sounding piece of work to standardise operations using a single system for business processes, data, and IT. The company gave a little insight into the planning at a management meeting back in August, when …

    "customers' best partner in digital transformation,

    This means that customers will need to change how they deal with Fujitsu to fit in with the new SAP \w ERP system.

    Suppliers will be similarly afflicted.

      Look at the bright side

      At least Capita is not in charge, so Fujitsu just might have a chance.

        But Fujitsu are involved, that means they undercut Capita to like they do for UK Government projects and will soon have someone who was working in the canteen as their chief engineer overseeing this, and no doubt recommending they use those Windows 2008r2 server licences up to save even more money on the project.

    Bad data

    Blame it on bad data. This seemed to work in at least one organisation. New guy in charge quickly got rid of the old crew, extended the deadline by a year because why not, and when things did not work out as promised blamed it on "bad data" and hinted that this was all the fault of the old crew. New guy praised himself for getting rid of those idiots, conveniently ignoring issues raised by the old crew about data conversion.

    Just asking .... for more than a friend.

    Fujitsu has none of its own cloud services in Europe but resells services for Microsoft and AWS.

    Is that omission an oversight for present correction with future home-grown services ready for live in product placements?

    Such would render Fujitsu with active skin in European Cloud Sectors. Better supplied services = automatic leading drivers. Now that is an extremely attractive challenge to any able bodied soul/entrepreneurial entity, which executed well, surely rewards exceptionally well, ... and quite rightly so too, which must always make a really pleasant change from all of the many usually unsavoury and unusually unsatisfactory norms rewarded and paraded in media ... and which attract so much rapt attention consistently delivering the disappointment accompanying unrequited ardour.

    Does Project Fujitra embrace leading activities in the European Cloud Sectors?

    Bravo, Nippon. Yoku yatta/よく やった :-)

    I don't suppose it'll be a recycled Horizon.

    "eat its own dogfood"

    Hope for the best, expect the worst.

    The effort should be called the Corporate Resource Actualization Project, since dogs like to eat their dogfood again after it's passed through their system once.

    Hope that they've put aside some dosh...

    ... for compensating the poor employees who'll get jailed for fraud because 'Fujitsu computer says so'.

    Also it's quite refreshing that they're saying upfront that they expect to make a dog's breakfast of it all.

    So that's K9 then. A dog.

    If you haven't heard of K5 don't worry, nobody else did either.

    First step....

    Build a statue of the CDXO in front of Global HQ. Engrave it with "It seemed like a good idea at the time".

      Engrave it with "It seemed like a good idea at the time". .... spold

      All the greatest ideas start out so, and have always started out so since long before even time began.

      In Cyber Realm does Capitalism Engage with Imagination that Offers an AI EMPowered Virtual Reality Production/AI Project for Mass Multi Media Platforms Presentation/Practical Eventful Realisation. ‽

      Well, .... do you know ...... is Capitalism Engaged to Imagination or Transfixed and Terrified in the Knowledge of just some of the Almighty Abilities Available with Heavenly Facilities Suitably Bedevilled with Almost Perfect Temptations ? There are those to know with views to know are currently actively realised. And Quality Control there, in the Need to Know Field of Views, is an AWEsome Task to Satisfy to Excess for the Guarantee of Assured Success.

      Who/What Spins your Worldly Views? Who/What Pictures IT for you to view and imagine to be real elsewhere whenever it is reported, recorded and pictured for all to see what can be easily magically presented by Media for your Enjoinment and Joyment/Engagement and Employment/Fuller Virtual Utilisation.

      If you want the pictures changed ...... switch to other channels presenting alternate facts delivering down to Earth, the totally different realities available to Earth from AI Systems for SMARTR Spaces. ..... which is running and one of the programs available for visualisation with further future intelligence input and support wonderfully supplied .... to practically none but the Very Best of Class in Almighty Applications.

      As you can imagine, is that some Heavenly Task Bedevilled with Almost Perfect Temptations . To profess that such would/could not be addictive, is surely misinformative to the nth degree ..... and reveals one as an imposter to the holders submitting to surrender to a sublime recognition of the possible, and therefore probable and not impossible fact that is so is ....... by Almighty IntelAIgent Design.

      There's a lot to play with there, and ponder on. Gonna chill for a while. Bis später, pet/mate/volk.

    Because a transformation in Fujitsu means job cuts and outsourcing.
