API platform Apigee will support Fujitsu’s IT move to the cloud for its 162,000 employees in more than 100 countries.Apigee is delivering the API platform to support Fujitsu’s initiative in which it is moving its internal IT infrastructure of 640 systems and 13,000 servers into the cloud within the next five years.
This IT transformation is designed to increase efficiency and lower costs, and to allow Fujitsu to take advantage of new opportunities in big data and the Internet of Things (IoT). Fujitsu plans to apply the lessons it is learning from its own transformation to the products and services it offers customers.
The Apigee API platform enables organisations like Fujitsu to share data and services as Tango Matsumoto, Chief Technology and Information Officer at Fujitsu explains the platform will speed the the move to the cloud from on premise. “Apigee is an important part of that transformation. Not only are they providing a platform for agile development of new applications, but Apigee also has the capabilities to support Internet-of-Things (IoT) devices and systems, as well as predictive analytics.
Adding “Fujitsu relies on Apigee’s strength in exposing data and backend system capabilities with modern APIs in a secure manner to developers. This will help enterprises to operate both Systems of Record (SoR) and Systems of Engagement (SoE) under rapidly changing business environments.”
