The Fujitsu Business-Centric Data Center Tweet
The way ICT creates value is fundamentally changing.
First came the world of the mainframe computer, which simply affected our levels of productivity. That gave way to the world of the client-server Internet and business process transformation. But these approaches no longer meet requirements.
In a new human centric world that is characterized by cloud, mobile, Big Data and social media, we need ICT that will deliver innovation and real business results.
This is the aim of the Fujitsu Business-Centric Data Center.
A Human Centric Intelligent Society Tweet
ICT at our fingertips has the power to create knowledge and proactively help us make the best decisions.
Think about driving. It is now possible to combine various sources of information - from a car’s GPS location data to roadside sensors, public data feeds and even social networks. All this information has the potential to provide you with a much richer driving experience. One that is based on your individual needs and preferences as well as real-time data, such as traffic hot spots, the best parking spaces or where and when to refuel. In other words, this information has the power to support you in your journey, almost without you having to think.
This era of human centric ICT, together with our company values and the wider social challenges we all face, has led us to the Fujitsu vision: a Human Centric Intelligent Society.

The Business-Centric Data Center: Backbone of the Human Centric Intelligent Society Tweet
The backbone of the Human Centric Intelligent Society is the Business-Centric Data Center – offering a way to link up sources of information, analyze data and provide results in a timely, efficient and cost-effective manner.
But with competing pressures to move to the cloud, be more mobile, go social and do more with Big Data, there is never going to be a “one-size-fits-all” approach that works.
This is the true value of the Business-Centric Data Center: a way to align your business requirements with the latest trends and suitable technologies to create a solution that is tailor-made to meet your organization’s requirements.
The Development of the Business-Centric Data Center Tweet
Why do we need a new approach?
The old IT centric approach to the data center meant focusing solely on technology by answering four simple questions:
- Which server class?
- What kind of storage?
- Which OS/hypervisor?
- Which brand?
But in a more demanding world, we should now be asking business centric questions instead:
- What is the business challenge?
- What application do we need to address such challenges?
- What is our deployment scenario?
- How can ICT be optimized?
Business requirements should determine the technologies you use, not the other way around. Fujitsu understands the power of a tailored, business centric approach to ICT – one that will stimulate growth, deliver operational results, optimize costs and reduce risk throughout your enterprise.
At a time when organizations face many challenges and opportunities, our Business-Centric Data Center offers a way to deliver innovation as well as efficiency and performance.

Delivering a better data center Tweet
Getting the right ICT
In the past, application-oriented ICT infrastructures consisted of silos which meant that the accompanying business processes were fragmented and not aligned very efficiently. The situation improved with the advent of virtualization which pooled and automated available resources. The virtualization era culminated in the cloud which gave companies new levels of flexibility and transparency.
But in the new world of human centric ICT, the expectation is that all business processes should run smoothly and offer the platform to innovate. This is the aim of the Business-Centric Data Center, namely to leverage the advantages of the application and virtualization-oriented approaches, while aligning trends and technologies to actual business priorities.
Aligning trends and technologies
The CIO has a tough job with three different roles to play:
1. Change agent,
2. Efficiency driver and
3. Service creator.
They must also make sure that the data center is agile, efficient, scalable, consolidated, secure and innovative. And they must consider trends, such as cloud, big data, mobile and social media.
To address each of these trends in turn means selecting from countless technologies - from integrated solutions to automation tools, high-performance computing, in-memory databases and many more. It is quite a challenge. And the difficulty lies is matching the right trend and the right technology to the right business priority.
Meeting business priorities
The key task for a Business-Centric Data Center is to underpin business results, such as enterprise growth, optimized costs or reduced risks. The data center must therefore:
- Deliver optimized business solutions
- Improve IT management, governance and organization
- Reduce IT costs
- Build a flexible IT infrastructure
- Enhance the use of information and analytics
All of which means you need to make the right choices for your ICT infrastructure.
Tailoring the approach
Organizational success improves when your business requirements, trends and technology are all aligned. This alignment is the Business-Centric Data Center.
