By combining Palantir's powerful platforms and success across industries with Fujitsu's information and communication technology (ICT) capabilities and extensive experience supporting customers in their DX journeys, the partners will enable Japanese customers to achieve transformational outcomes against their core missions. Fujitsu's experience working with all branches of the Japanese government and commercial institutions will provide the partners with an added layer of regional expertise. "I am confident that our partnership with Palantir will offer customers in Japan the chance to accelerate their digital transformation journeys, while simultaneously strengthening our own DX initiatives within Fujitsu," commented Takahito Tokita, CEO and CDXO of Fujitsu Limited.
"We face a rapidly changing and increasingly uncertain world. With Palantir's extensive track record in solving complex challenges and our own robust customer base and wide-ranging industry expertise, we will offer solutions that embody Fujitsu's purpose-driven mission and endeavor together to deliver new value to our customers in Japan."
As the leading Japanese ICT company, Fujitsu recognizes the power of Palantir's technology and is deploying it internally to transform its operations, and propel its own success. In the future, Fujitsu will continue to strive to resolve customers' management issues, while deploying a data platform service that contributes to the achievement of Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) by tackling a variety of social challenges relating to smart cities and disaster prevention and mitigation. Fujitsu's partnership with Palantir Japan demonstrates its ongoing commitment to leveraging world-class technology while promoting sustainable DX for its customers.
"Since the establishment of Palantir Japan in November 2019, we have been working on supporting digital transformation of Japanese companies and society through the best of Silicon Valley technology," said Koichi Narasaki, CEO of the company. "Our role of promoting digital transformation through Palantir software platforms has become even greater through the global COVID-19 pandemic, and it is with pleasure that we welcome Fujitsu as our Flagship Technology Partner in this critical time. Palantir Japan aims to promote our cutting-edge technology by cooperating with partners like Fujitsu to accelerate digital transformation for the most important institutions and in Japanese society as a whole."
