The ETA will also enable Fujitsu to further bolster its "Global Strategic Partner Academy"(2) program launched in 2021 by offering global Group employees original RiseUp with ServiceNow learning contents and supporting each employee's training and upskilling in alignment with individual career development plans.
This initiative represents an important part of Fujitsu's vision for "Business Applications" to support more sustainable business transformation under Fujitsu Uvance, Fujitsu's portfolio of global solutions to realize a sustainable world.
