Fujitsu and Oracle are forming a new alliance to deliver cloud services to customers in Japan and their international subsidiaries.

Under the alliance, Oracle's Cloud Application and Platform services - such as Oracle Database Cloud Service and Oracle Human Capital Management (HCM) Cloud - will be powered by Fujitsu's datacenters in Japan. Under the new strategic alliance, Fujitsu will work to drive sales of robust cloud offerings to companies in Japan and their subsidiaries around the world.

Fujitsu will install the Oracle Cloud services in its data centers in Japan and connect them to its K5 cloud service in order to deliver enterprise-grade cloud services.

The first Oracle application that will be offered to Fujitsu customers under the joint offering is Oracle HCM Cloud. As part of the agreement, Fujitsu will implement Oracle HCM Cloud to gain insight into its workforce throughout the company's worldwide network of offices.

The combination of these solutions including Oracle Database Cloud Service, Oracle HCM Cloud, and K5, will enable Fujitsu and Oracle to deliver mission critical systems over a cloud environment within Fujitsu's data centers while maintaining the high levels of performance and reliability that had previously been achieved in on-premise environments. 

"We at Fujitsu support the digital transformation of our customers, and aim to contribute to optimized customer systems and business growth with the roll out of our Digital Business Platform MetaArc," said Shingo Kagawa, SEVP, head of digital services business & CTO, Fujitsu Limited.

"In particular, we offer the core cloud service on MetaArc, K5, which addresses systems of engagement (SoE) and systems of record (SoR). Oracle is a leader in Japan's database market segment and possesses strong capabilities in the SoR domain. Now, as we look to strengthen MetaArc and K5, taking part in this strategic alliance with Oracle will work to meet the cloud needs of our customers."

"In order to realize the full business potential of cloud computing, organizations need secure, reliable and high-performing cloud solutions," said Edward Screven, Chief Corporate Architect, Oracle. 

"Oracle's new strategic alliance with Fujitsu will allow companies in Japan to take advantage of an integrated cloud offering to support their transition to the cloud.
