Tokyo, April 26, 2012 — Fujitsu today announced the release of Value Added Application Assets Management Service, an add-on service that dramatically enhances application maintenance efficiency. This is accomplished by entrusting existing business applications to Fujitsu when using the APM Modernization Services for Cloud, which facilitates the migration of customers' business systems to the cloud.
The new service offers operational processes and tools for the efficient maintenance of application assets. In addition, it also provides analyses of entrusted application assets and sends regular reports to customers. At the same time, it adds an application maintenance platform in order to ensure applications are maintained at their optimal conditions.
As a result of using the new service, customers will always be able to ascertain the status and value of their existing application assets. When used in combination with Fujitsu's already available streamlining service, it is also possible to make optimal use of business applications and respond to moment-to-moment changes in business conditions through measures such as organizing massive numbers of business applications and determining whether it is necessary to continue using or to rebuild applications.
Amid a rapidly changing business environment, customers are demanding the ability to properly take advantage of business applications that respond to these changes. In addition, due to a heightened awareness of the danger posed by natural disasters, there is a great need for implementing disaster prevention measures.
On the other hand, managing massive numbers of business applications can be challenging, and more customers than ever before have expressed needs such as the following:
To address these needs, Fujitsu is releasing Value Added Application Assets Management Service to enable customers to entrust Fujitsu with business application assets from their existing systems. The new service has been developed based on the know-how accumulated by Fujitsu through its experience in service delivery with APM Modernization Services for Cloud.
Together with offering application maintenance processes and tools, Fujitsu also provides a manual outlining the procedures to put them into practice, allowing customers to begin using them immediately upon deploying the service. The application maintenance processes have been developed based on Fujitsu's experience in on-site maintenance, together with ITIL best practices. The process flow is practical, enabling customers to smoothly transition from their current operation and maintenance environments.
Using an asset analysis service already available from Fujitsu, the new service provides detailed monthly analysis reports on customers' application assets. Customers can use these reports as help in formulating short-, medium- and long-term plans for the continued use of business applications and for determining whether rebuilding is required, etc. This allows for optimal, waste-free use of existing application assets that respond to business conditions from moment-to-moment.
Using Fujitsu's time-tested FGCP/S5(1) cloud environment, the service provides customers with tools that have actually been employed in the on-site maintenance of business systems. Because the service is run from a secure data center, it also answers the needs of customers who are looking to use the service for emergency backup.
