Underlining the importance of digital co-creation to customers, CEO of Fujitsu Malaysia, Chiharu Abe, said “We have been cultivating expertise in diverse operations together with our customers in a wide range of sectors throughout the world. By leveraging such experience and knowledge, we will continue to strive to develop and advance key technologies in the digital age, while also making digital transformation possible for our customers, and create new values through co-creation.”
“Having been in Malaysia for the last 21 years, Fujitsu Malaysia is best placed to leverage and take advantage of expertise and industry knowledge to benefit the local market, through digital co-creation activities. To this effect, we have been actively scouting and sowing the seeds of collaborations, by identifying and increasing our co-creation partners in the country and believe this will bring us growth in the market. We have also been conducting “Proof of Concept” (POC) for various customers in the country and the feedback has been positive.” he added.
The conference brought forth inspiring keynotes and business sessions for attendees that touched on current topics of interest such as Internet of Things (IoT), Artificial Intelligence (AI), Cyber security, as well as Cloud, and how by leveraging on the experience and knowledge of Fujitsu and its ecosystem partners, customers can embark on digital-based collaborations to create greater value that can accelerate business growth. Various digital co-creation initiatives around the region were also highlighted by some of the speakers to impress upon the attendees on the limitless possibilities open to them by embarking on such co-creation activities.
VP of Global Strategy and Digital Services, Fujitsu Limited, Craig Baty, said “Fujitsu’s brand promise has always been “Shaping tomorrow with you” – not for you, by you, to you ... but with you.

“Various cases around the world, at the San Carlos Hospital in Spain, Fujitsu and the hospital collaborated in utilising AI to revolutionise clinical decision-making, allowing for better quality of care and treatment for patients and the public. Smart factories deploying IoT is yet another digital collaboration between INESA Group in China and Fujitsu, which has seen customers experience production increases of up to 25%. In addition to giving full visibility of the factory to managers, they were able to better plan production and mitigate potential failures.” shared Baty.
