Digital technologies, like the internet and the smartphone, are advancing fast. They have become indispensable to business and our everyday lives. It is not only people but now things, information, processes are increasingly connected to networks, creating new value. It is important for enterprises to harness digital technologies to create innovation and produce competitive advantage.
Digital technology continues to grow, permeating every facet of today's world. In such a climate, the competitiveness of businesses are all linked and, more than ever, businesses have the opportunity to generate positive outcomes for society as a whole. We must consider creating social value and corporate growth as one and the same goal.
A mounting number of issues threaten the sustainability of our society. Inadequacy of food and energy, urbanization, natural disasters, economic inequality—these are all global issues. We believe that digital technology is essential to solve these issues.
There are some concerns that the further progress of technology might cause some disadvantages for people - like losing jobs. But we believe that real nature of technology is a natural extension of human beings, making life better for everybody. We want to be the company that helps makes this happen, and that is the reason why FUJITSU is working to realize a Human Centric Intelligent Society with our customers and partners. We are developing all of our technologies and services with this goal in mind.
Q1. FUJITSU’s DNA and how has been shaped it the history
Since it was founded back in 1923, FUJITSU has been innovating information and communication technologies (ICT) with a unique spirit: a spirit that is responsive, ambitious, genuine and caters to those who request its services and products.
what we offer at FUJITSU nowadays does not end with computers. As an ICT company, we aim to offer total ICT solutions that help to realize dreams and answer to the challenges of our customers using all of our hardware, software and services developed over the years. Our solutions are built on the fact that our roots are in technology. This technology, in turn, is built on our methodology and backed by our experience and our challenging spirit.
Q2. What role FUJITSU plays in the society?
A new world is emerging. It is a world of connectivity. People and the things around us are, all linked together, sharing information. The World Economic Fair calls it a hyperconnected World and it will have a huge impact on the future. More connectivity means more collaboration. It means vanishing boundaries. It means changes to the way business work and how society creates value. It also means risk and uncertainty. It means future will be different.
At the heart of a hyperconnected World is a new generation of the internet. You may have heard of the Internet of Things (IoT). The digital world will connect your car, air conditioner, washing machine, refrigerator, microwave oven, or even your light bulbs. In 2013, there are around 10 billion devices connected to the internet. These numbers will likely reach 50 billion or more by 2020.
What then is the key to succeed in a hyperconnected world? To FUJITSU, the answer is simple: people. Organizations will look to their people for the innovative new ways to engage with their people for the innovative new ways to engage with their customers and deliver value for business and society. We are experiencing a shift to a new human centric paradigm – A Human Centric Intelligent Society.
We believe that the human centric ICT can help create a more intelligent society, a better place for human beings and a better place to conduct our business. It is a sustainable world where we can live and prosper. Human centric ICT is a style of technology that empowers people. It is designed and built to meet our needs. It harnesses information to create knowledge that we can use anywhere, anytime. It enables innovation. It creates value. It is the fusion of advanced technologies encompassing cloud, mobility, Big Data, social, the Internet of Things and more.
A Human Centric Intelligent Society has two key characteristics. One is that intelligent ICT is embedded into every aspect of business and society. However, just making the world a smarter place is not enough. A second characteristic is that the creativity of people is harnessed and directed towards positive social outcomes and greater sustainability.
FUJITSU is working to realize a Human Centric Intelligent Society and this mission underpins all of our business activities. This is a long journey, but we are already taking steps along it.
Q3. What FUJITSU expects for the future employees
What FUJITSU is expecting to find in you is “inquisitiveness”. We think it includes both the eagerness to take on the unknown challenges that lie ahead at every step, and the consistency of delivering each responsibility by envisioning its meaning. This inquisitiveness is what we value as our DNA- “down to earth” or “dorokusai” – and what keeps us pursuing innovation in the ICT field.
This inquisitiveness can be developed through every scene of your school days. We believe every challenge like research and extracurricular activities, of course participating in ACF, will undoubtedly turn into valuable assets for your future and may turn into an engine to that could bring you to the global field of FUJITSU. We believe that all your experience and knowledge you accumulated in school days will turn into the solid base to play an active part in society.
Moreover, after joining FUJITSU, there will be a vast amount of opportunities for every employee to further enrich their skills and their expertise in the ICT field and not only. This is related to our working style. We work hard as one of the team member and aim at producing the best results as a team. It is sometimes said to be a unique company culture from world-wide view. However, thanks to this culture, we can experience not only your major-based work, but also other various work widely. Also, we can motivate each other and keep growing up together.
It is up to every employee to find its own career path, as our employee training program is based on the “learn by doing” working style, where everybody gets to be assigned to different projects within the department. Also, as our Corporate Philosophy states, “we respect diversity and support individual growth”, we value our employees, and we continuously challenge ourselves to assure the best working and learning environment for everyone, regardless of gender, country of origin or educational background.
Q4. Message for the young talents of ASEAN Career Fair with Japan in Singapore
ICT Solutions, our main business offering, are the collective knowledge and know-how that FUJITSU has gained over the 80 years of existence by solving various business challenges of our customers. Being an ICT Solutions provider requires continuous efforts of adding new values to the existing solutions through leveraging our experience and know-how rather than merely providing existing products as solutions. In the Japanese market with its high demand standard on services, FUJITSU has achieved the top share and built up considerable know-how and leading edge technologies.
We are aiming to expand our global market share and deliver these solutions at a world-wide level, more than we ever did before. To achieve this, we need talents - regardless of the country of origin - who can bring their values and work towards these goals with us.
We believe those who will join “ASEAN Career Fair with Japan in Singapore” are eager to play an active part in shaping a better tomorrow for the society we live in, and that is why we have decided to join this fair.
During this fair we would like you to feel our DNA, the broadness and essence of our business and to find the matching point between you and FUJITSU. We have prepared various internship positions and direct recruiting opportunities for those interested and eager to take the challenge to work in Japan.
We are looking forward to meeting you in Singapore on February 11th, 2017!
