CEBIT - Fujitsu-Siemens, EMC promise more integration

Fujitsu-Siemens and EMC will more tightly integrate their products to improve customer satisfaction

Fujitsu-Siemens Computers and EMC have agreed to extend a long-standing partnership by more closely integrating their respective products in a bid to improve customer satisfaction, according to the companies' top executives.

The agreement will give Fujitsu-Siemens' customers flexibility and choice in storage infrastructure, the CEO of Fujitsu-Siemens, Bernd Bischoff, said during Cebit in Hanover, Germany. "Customers can rely on one company providing a more diverse set of services across the whole IT stack," he said.

Under the terms of the agreement, Fujitsu-Siemens will integrate storage and management technologies from EMC with its own FlexFrame, BladeFrame and Primergy servers. The two companies will also develop a set of products for SAP customers based on the FlexFrame server. A similar initiative will develop a set of products based on the BladeFrame server for companies running Microsoft software, such as SQL Server and Exchange 2007.

These products will be offered alongside consulting services from Fujitsu-Siemens IT Professional Services group, which has been certified as an EMC authorised services network partner.

By integrating EMC and Fujitsu-Siemens' products, the companies hoped to improve end-user satisfaction, chairman, president and CEO of EMC, Joe Tucci, said.

"That's what it's really all about," he said.
