Fujitsu – whose exclusive partner for the commercialization of solutions in Italy is FINIX Technology Solutions – improves the realization of digital transformation (DX) projects thanks to the second generation of the PRIMEFELEX solution for converged and hyperconverged infrastructures for VMware, Microsoft, Nutanix and SAP environments.
Currently, many DX projects fail to produce the desired results due to incorrect implementation, insufficient speed of implementation or the presence of too many providers (which end up complicating the single solution). Fujitsu’s new PRIMEFLEX offering supports companies and data architects in their DX projects, reducing the risk of failure with end-to-end data-driven services, ready-to-use platforms and all the services required for implementation.
The new second generation PRIMEFLEX solution reduces the complexity of data-driven transformation projects by adding as standard the infrastructure implementation and support services to complement the main pre-configured and pre-tested PRIMEFLEX offering. Having a standardized pricing and ordering model reduces the doubts customers have when it comes to integrating their hybrid cloud platforms. Furthermore, the second generation of PRIMEFLEX reduces operational risks, guarantees a more resilient infrastructure than do-it-yourself approaches, and improves the experience throughout the life cycle by extending the life of the IT infrastructure.
To further increase business agility and forecasting ability, Fujitsu also offers pay-as-you-go services through FUJITSU uSCALE, a simple and comprehensive program where customers can use, scale and run PRIMEFLEX platforms completely as a service – including constant management of results.
The new standardized package is designed for customers who want to avoid all the worries that arise in setting up, installing, implementing and maintaining an infrastructure with a do-it-yourself approach. The solution also eliminates the “ping-pong” between suppliers and customers in defining who is responsible for implementing a support, should it prove necessary. For customers who have the staff and skills necessary to implement and maintain their data architecture, Fujitsu also offers the new PRIMEFLEX Essentials delivery option, containing the pre-configured and pre-tested core technology stack, without the services of infrastructure implementation and support.
“Through the new Fujitsu PRIMEFLEX range, a guaranteed price is added to the standardized package for companies that are committed to modernizing their IT infrastructures,” explains Olivier Delachapelle, Head of Product Line Management Europe at Fujitsu.: “Ordering infrastructure just got too complicated. Fujitsu is committed to solving the real challenges faced by its customers and understands how they need certainty when it comes to implementation, support – and, of course, pricing – in order to complete their digital transformation projects. On the contrary, the current ways of ordering these infrastructures go in just the opposite direction, leaving the customer with the feeling of ending up in the cloud without being able to exercise any control over costs ”.
“The second generation of PRIMEFLEX,” continues Delachapelle, “builds on the peace of mind that PRIMEFLEX already offers, taking it to new heights with standardized implementation and support services that are available with a single order number and price. The result is complete predictability of life cycle costs and no surprises when the cloud bill arrives ”.The Fujitsu PRIMEFLEX range is immediately ready for implementation the moment it is delivered. The design, deployment, and lifecycle management of a hybrid data architecture can currently be error-prone – time-consuming and costly – posing numerous risks to businesses. Unlike Fujitsu, other vendors offer services whose cost is calculated on an individual basis. Such a quote can take days and often contain errors due to the exclusion of essential services, thus leading to an unclear picture in terms of budget. New standardized Infrastructure Support Services significantly reduce operational downtime.
