Together, these solutions provide small businesses with an efficient way to scan paper checks into QuickBooks 2010 so they can skip the bank lines and start depositing checks electronically.

The Fujitsu ScanSnap S300 gives customers a cost-effective, flexible check scanning solution designed to work with Intuit Check Solution for QuickBooks.

Paperless deposits, or Remote Deposit Capture (RDC), became possible with the Check Clearing for the 21st Century Act – known as Check 21 – in 2004.

Fujitsu Reports Fiscal 2009 Second-Quarter Financial Results

Fujitsu Reports Fiscal 2009 Second-Quarter Financial Results
– Profitability improves dramatically from first quarter –
(Source: Fujitsu)

Fujitsu, a leading provider of IT-based business solutions for the global marketplace,  reported consolidated net income of 72.4 billion yen (US$804 million) for the second quarter (July 1 – September 30, 2009) of fiscal 2009.

Net income increased 68.1 billion yen compared with the second quarter of fiscal 2008 due primarily to a gain on the sale of investment securities. Second-quarter operating income totaled 18.9 billion yen (US$210 million), representing a decline of 13.8 billion yen from a year ago, but a significant improvement from the operating loss of 37.1 billion yen in the first quarter of fiscal 2009.

Quarterly net sales totaled 1,142.3 billion yen (US$12,692 million), a decline of 10.5% compared to the same period last year and an increase of 9.4% from the first quarter of 2009.

The profitability of the core Technology Solutions business, comprising IT services and system platforms, rebounded strongly in the second quarter compared with the first quarter, while losses in the Device Solutions business narrowed sharply thanks to a rebound in demand for logic LSI products and aggressive business reform measures. In the Ubiquitous Product Solutions business, despite an increase in mobile phone sales in Japan, second-quarter revenue declined both versus the same period last year and the first quarter of 2009.

On a geographic basis, second-quarter profitability in and outside Japan declined compared with the same period last year, but improved in each region compared with the first quarter. In Japan, in particular, operating income rebounded from an operating loss of 12.3 billion yen in the first quarter to an operating profit of 33.3 billion yen.

For the first half of fiscal 2009 (April 1 – September 30, 2009), the company posted net sales of 2,186.6 billion yen (US$24,296 million), a decline of 10.9% compared with the same period in fiscal 2008, an operating loss of 18.2 billion yen (US$202 million), which marked a 16.7-billion-yen improvement over the target but a deterioration compared with operating income of 38.5 billion in the first half of last year. Net income totaled 43.2 billion yen (US$480 million), an improvement of 28.2 billion yen over the target and 38.6 billion yen over last year.

“For the first half of the year, we beat our earnings target despite a very challenging business environment,” said Michiyoshi Mazuka, president of Fujitsu Limited. “I’m confident that the resiliency of our core businesses and our dedication to lean, customer-centric management will enable us to meet our targets for the full year.”

Business Segment Results

Second-quarter net sales in the Technology Solutions segment, which includes the System Platforms and Services sub-segments, totaled 754.1 billion yen (US$8,379 million), declining 8.8% compared to the same period in fiscal 2008. Sales in Japan decreased by 14.1% due to lower solutions sales in the financial services, manufacturing and distribution sectors. Sales outside Japan declined 6% after adjusting to negate exchange rate fluctuations and the impact of the conversion of Fujitsu Siemens Computers into a consolidated subsidiary (subsequently renamed Fujitsu Technology Solutions (Holding) B.V.). Operating income for the segment was 37.6 billion yen (US$418 million), a deterioration of 11.4 billion yen over the same period last year, due to the sales decline and special charges. Compared with the first quarter, segment sales increased 12.9% and operating income rebounded from the loss of 15.3 billion yen.

Net sales in the Ubiquitous Product Solutions segment were 235.8 billion yen (US$2,620 million), a decrease of 5.5% from the same period in fiscal 2008. Sales in Japan fell by 14.2%, while sales outside Japan declined 28% on an adjusted basis. Although mobile phone sales in Japan increased, intensified price competition and weaker corporate demand led to a decline in PC sales worldwide. HDD sales also declined worldwide. The segment posted operating loss of 3.5 billion yen (US$39 million), a deterioration from the loss of 1.0 billion yen a year ago as well as the first-quarter profit.

Net sales in the Device Solutions segment totaled 137.2 billion yen (US$1,524 million), a decrease of 23.2% compared to the second quarter of fiscal 2008. Sales of logic LSI devices rebounded strongly from the first quarter, but remained significantly lower compared to a year ago. The segment posted an operating loss of 1.6 billion yen (US$18 million), an improvement of 0.9 billion yen from last year’s second quarter.

Sun Microsystems and Fujitsu Boost SPARC Enterprise Servers with New SPARC64 Processors

Sun Microsystems and Fujitsu Boost SPARC Enterprise Servers with New SPARC64 Processors: Enhanced Server Line with Faster SPARC64 Processors Sets Four New World Records, Delivers Best Investment Protection on the Market

Sun Microsystems, Inc. (NASDAQ: JAVA) and Fujitsu (TSE:6702)  announced new quad-core SPARC64 VII processors and an enhanced memory controller for the SPARC Enterprise server line. The faster SPARC64 VII processors deliver up to 25 percent better performance than the previous generation and with new memory access enhancements, the updated SPARC Enterprise systems have delivered outstanding performance on key enterprise benchmarks. These results further prove the updated SPARC Enterprise servers with the Solaris Operating System (OS) are ideal platforms for consolidation and mission-critical enterprise applications including large-scale databases, BIDW, ERP and human capital management (HCM). The new processors are the second in-box upgrade delivered for this product family and are available as an option for seamless upgrades in existing SPARC Enterprise servers.

Running at 2.88GHz for the SPARC Enterprise M9000 and M8000 servers and 2.53GHz for SPARC Enterprise M5000 and M4000 servers, the new processors provide increased single-thread and overall system performance, while the enhanced memory controller in the SPARC Enterprise M8000 and M9000 servers improves throughput under memory-intensive workloads.

“Our SPARC Enterprise servers with the Solaris OS offer a compelling combination of mainframe class performance and reliability as well as virtualization and consolidation capabilities in an open system,” said John Fowler, executive vice president, Systems Group, Sun Microsystems. “The update we’re announcing today makes it possible for customers to increase the performance of mission-critical enterprise applications while capitalizing on existing infrastructure investments with upgrades at half the cost of IBM.”

“The enhanced SPARC64 VII processors deliver world class performance. By upgrading to these new processors, customers can grow their business performance without sacrificing existing IT infrastructure investments,” said Noriyuki Toyoki, corporate vice president of Fujitsu. “With new processors and excellent virtualization features built into SPARC Enterprise servers, we are confident customers will achieve dramatic increases in IT resource efficiency. They will also significantly extend the life of their server investment.”

With the addition of the new quad-core SPARC64 VII processors, Sun and Fujitsu continue to increase the compute capacity of their SPARC Enterprise servers while extending long-term investment protection. The updated systems stand out from the competition with more than 15 years of binary compatibility and the “mix-and-match” SPARC64 processor architecture as well as virtualization via Dynamic Domains and Solaris Containers. The SPARC Enterprise servers are also the only systems on the market with the ability to mix SPARC64 VI and VII processors in a single domain, enabling customers dynamically add processing resources — without downtime and without requiring other hardware changes. Additionally, the integration of Oracle Database with Solaris 10’s dynamic memory management enables an Oracle database running on these SPARC Enterprise servers to use the additional memory on-the-fly without service interruption.

More information on the SPARC Enterprise server line is available at http://sun.com/sparcenterprise and http://www.fujitsu.com/sparcenterprise/ 

SPARC Enterprise Servers Outperform the Competition

Two-tier SAP SD Standard Application Benchmark –The SPARC Enterprise M9000 server (32 processors, 128 cores, 256 threads), delivered a new world record result on the two-tier SAP Sales and Distribution (SD) Standard Application Benchmark with 17,430 SAP SD Benchmark users for all systems running the SAP enhancement package 4 for the SAP ERP 6.0 application (Unicode)(1). This achievement complements the SPARC Enterprise M9000 server’s standing world record result on the two-tier SAP SD Standard Application Benchmark with SAP ERP 6.0 and is the first published Unicode result on an enterprise-class system(2). Competitors, including IBM, have not published two-tier SAP SD Unicode benchmark results on their enterprise-class systems, making the SPARC Enterprise M9000 server, Oracle Database and Solaris 10 OS used in the new benchmark an extremely attractive solution for customers seeking unparalleled scalability and unmatched application performance.

The SAP SD Standard Application Benchmark represents the critical tasks performed in real-world ERP business environments and demonstrates the performance of systems running order- and invoice-processing workloads. This result highlights the SPARC Enterprise M9000 server’s performance leadership at the high-end of the two-tier SAP SD Standard Application Benchmark and underscores the optimal performance of SAP ERP running on SPARC64 systems with the Solaris OS regardless of the encoding methodology used in the application.

SPEC CPU2006 — The SPARC Enterprise M9000 server, equipped with 64 SPARC64 VII 2.88 GHz processors, posted the best single system UNIX result on the SPECint_rate_base2006 benchmark, beating the best published IBM POWER6 UNIX result by 32 percent. SPEC CPU2006 is a CPU-intensive benchmark suite, stressing a system’s processor, memory subsystem and compiler with two sets of benchmarks — one set measures integer-intensive performance and the other set measures compute-intensive floating point performance. Running the Solaris 10 OS and Sun Studio 12 Update 1 software, the new top-of-the-line SPARC Enterprise M9000 server also holds the single system UNIX record on the SPECfp_rate_base2006 benchmark and outscored the top-of-the-line 5.0GHz POWER6-based IBM Power 595 server(3).

Oracle PeopleSoft Enterprise Payroll 9.0 — The SPARC Enterprise M4000 server, equipped with four SPARC 64 VII 2.53 GHz processors, achieved world record performance on this popular HCM application benchmark. The PeopleSoft Enterprise 9.0 Payroll (North America) benchmark represents typical OLTP workloads for a large organization processing employee payroll. The application calculates gross to net earnings, deductions and taxes, and is fully integrated with other Oracle PeopleSoft Enterprise products, allowing for coordination of a wide range of salary, reward, and expense payments. The SPARC Enterprise M4000 server processed 250,000 employee payroll checks using Oracle Database 11g running on the Solaris 10 OS.

Fujitsu Unveils glovia G2 ERP System for Production Management

Fujitsu Unveils glovia G2 ERP System for Production Management
Fujitsu and Glovia International, Inc. (GII) announced the launch of glovia G2, the next-generation production management ERP for the manufacturing industry, available today worldwide.

The product combines functionality compliant with international standards and Japanese manufacturing know-how, enabling the quick deployment and integration of production management systems globally. The software makes production conditions visible by individually tracking the production, sales, and inventory status of each business site in a timely manner.

These capabilities help customers respond quickly to changes in international market conditions at each layer of their organization—managerial, administrative, and production—and develop plans for global strategic production.

Background
In recent times, a pressing need has emerged among manufacturers to be able to monitor and respond quickly to changes in global demand, as well as to unify the management of production at multiple locations around the world. Companies are facing the challenges of ensuring compliance with global business regulations at each of these locations, in addition to consolidating disparate administrative systems, improving their IT investments via services integration, and gaining control over IT systems.

Fujitsu and GII have joined forces to address these demands with glovia G2, which makes information visible and supports productivity within companies.

Fujitsu Awards and Reviews

Fujitsu Siemens Computers develops the touchscreen ESPRIMO MA Tablet PC for the healthcare sector

Fujitsu have announced a mobile medical companion, the touchscreen ESPRIMO MA Tablet PC. The ESPRIMO MA is fanless and can be completely sanitized for use in sterile environments. Functions such as integrated high-speed 3G/UMTS and WLAN enable digitally-archived patient data to be accessed anywhere, at anytime bringing a “paperless” hospital one step closer. A dual SmartCard reader ensures maximum security for sensitive patient data. The ESPRIMO MA not only integrates seamlessly into the “Dynamic Infrastructures” service offered by Fujitsu Siemens Computers, but can also be easily integrated into the existing hospital IT infrastructure, such as a systems management system. The ESPRIMO MA will be available in the second quarter of 2009.

fujitsu esprimo ma 11

One of the major trends in hospitals is replacing hard-copy paper documentation with online digital documentation. The reason is obvious: efficient processes are crucial to the success of clinics and hospitals as commercial constraints on healthcare increase. Legally, doctors must maintain comprehensive treatment and medication records; but fewer employees are available overall for an increasing number of patients. The flood of data can no longer be managed using normal paper procedures. About 80% of archived paper documents are already in need of revision. A sophisticated IT infrastructure is needed to ensure that doctors have time to focus on patients, rather than administrative work.

In addition to storage solutions, servers and a large number of managed services, Fujitsu Siemens Computers, the leading European IT infrastructure provider, also offers devices for clinics and healthcare facilities that tailored for the healthcare sector as part of its “Dynamic Infrastructures” service. The ESPRIMO MA is the latest addition to this offering.

This robust tablet PC, weighing only 1.3 kilos, is specially designed for the medical environment. It can be used at patients’ bedsides, in the examination room or even on the move – for example in an emergency – making an important contribution toward medical process optimization. Instead of noting patient data on paper and later transferring that data to a PC, nursing staff can archive information digitally on-site. This saves nurses time and gives doctors access to patient data immediately from wherever they are, allowing them to immediately compare the condition of the patient with earlier findings, for instance. The ESPRIMO MA follows trend toward digitalization of data, successfully integrating it into a mobile concept. The ESPRIMO MA already meets all GEMATIK requirements regarding future mobile use of the electronic healthcare card for general practitioners and emergency services.

There are three features that give the ESPRIMO MA a unique position in the market:

Sterility can be extremely important in a hospital setting. Thanks to its fanless and completely sterilizable housing, the ESPRIMO MA is the only product on the market that can also be used in sterile environments, including operating rooms.

Data protection and data security are also of great significance in the medical sector. A dual SmartCard reader turns the ESPRIMO MA into FortKnox with regard to sensitive patient data.

Integrated high-speed 3G/UMTS and WLAN allow doctors and hospital staff to connect to their system at all times and from any location. With this connection, they can call up or enter data, ensuring diagnostic reliability and optimal patient care. Furthermore, data can also be updated using a barcode and RFID reader, making sure that no additional time is needed for data and system maintenance.

To integrate the ESPRIMO MA into clinics and hospitals, Fujitsu Siemens Computers, and its partner Intel, are working closely with various manufacturers of clinic software systems to ensure full compatibility between various software programs and the Intel Mobile Clinical Assistant platform that the ESPRIMO MA is based on. The ESPRIMO MA can already be seamlessly integrated into an existing IT infrastructure, for example, a system management system. This is due to the high product flexibility of the ESPRIMO MA. It is available as a thin or fat client, depending on requirements.

“Many modern clinics have already recognized that a specialist mobility strategy is increasingly important to process efficiency and patient well-being. As a result, demand for mobile PCs in the healthcare sector is skyrocketing drastically,” said Armin Kumpf, Senior Director Business Mobile at Fujitsu Siemens Computers. “Our new ESPRIMO MA offers this important market a product that has been developed specifically for the industry’s requirements; one which more than meets the exacting and unique demands of a clinic environment and which paves the way for the effective use of mobile applications within the IT infrastructure used by hospitals and in surgeries.”

The ESPRMO MA is due to be available in the second quarter 2009. Final pricing is not yet available, but should be that of a high configuration business notebook.

Fujitsu Siemens Computers introduces the latest Stylistic ST6012 Slate Tablet PC

Fujitsu Siemens Computers have launched its latest tablet PC at VISIT 2008 on November 12th/13th in Augsburg. The STYLISTIC ST6012 weighs only 1.6 kilograms and features state-of-the-art technology. Equipped with Intel® Centrino® 2 processor technology and integrated high-speed 3G/UMTS, it offers even better processor performance than its predecessor, as well as a long battery life of up to nine hours. Its 12.1-inch, anti-glare display and the easy-to-use pen make it a perfect companion for users who need ultra-flexibility, either indoors or outdoors, in sales, insurance, healthcare, surveying, or other on-the-go professions. The STYLISTIC ST6012 is available immediately at prices starting at €2000 plus VAT.

stylistic slate tablet pc

The new STYLISTIC ST6012 offers all the benefits and performance data of a very well equipped slate, as well as unique working mobility with a special pen and tablet that is just like working with paper and pen. The optionally integrated high-speed 3G/UMTS ensures that data is available anytime, anywhere and that the data can be updated and compared. Its robust housing and ShockSensor also ensure maximum data security on the hard disk.

The tablet PC’s easy handling and high-level flexibility has become an important tool for professionals ranging from the surveyor and supermarket manager or market researcher right through to hospital staff or independent assessors. The latter can also use the integrated ConfCamera to photograph any damage that has occurred.

Another example from the sales sector: tobacco sales employees regularly visit their points of sale, such as cigar shop, petrol station and kiosk, and take new orders directly. At the same time, they analyze the competition, check rival brands and find out about marketing campaigns and promotions. Thanks to the easy and flexible use of a tablet PC, such data can be entered directly on-site and synchronized with the central database wherever the salesperson happens to be. The data is collected in real time in the system ready for immediate processing. The STYLISTIC ST6012 is the ideal choice for such applications. However, should it be used on a desk, a docking station and keyboard transform it into a fully-fledged desktop alternative.

Another advantage is the digital signature, made possible by automatic handwriting recognition and additional special software. This is important in a sales or insurance environment, for example, where customers have to acknowledge receipt or sign contracts directly.

Fujitsu Siemens Computers has extended its Infrastructure Products & Services portfolio to include the STYLISTIC ST6012, a robust and powerful device that fits optimally into solutions for vertical markets and branches, such as healthcare, banking and insurance, retail & mobile sales or the building industry.

Fujitsu Siemens Computers is one of the world’s leading providers in this product segment; customers benefit from the company’s 17 years of experience in developing and manufacturing tablet PCs. The new STYLISTIC ST6012 seamlessly follows on from numerous generations of tablet PCs from Fujitsu Siemens Computers.

Fujitsu Siemens Computers launches the new "LIFEBOOK P8020" mobile notebook

Fujitsu Siemens Computers have announced the latest addition to its LIFEBOOK series at VISIT 2008 on November 12th/13th, 2008 in Augsburg. Thanks to its 12.1-inch display and weighing only 1.3 kilos, the LIFEBOOK P8020 is ultra-compact and is one of the stars in the family. Like its big brothers and sisters, it also is now based on the latest Intel mobility platform. Other technical highlights include unrestricted connectivity thanks to the built-in high-speed 3G/UMTS module, top-quality security equipment such as a fingerprint sensor, SmartCard controller and TPM module, as well as amazing energy efficiency. The latter is due to its ultra-low voltage processor, which has been specially developed for small systems: it uses very little power and is thus the ideal component for high level mobility. At VISIT 2008, the LIFEBOOK P8020 can be seen as a wonder of connectivity and part of a mobility solution. As a result, it is a major component in Infrastructure Products & Services and is a significant part in the “Dynamic Infrastructures” service offered by Fujitsu Siemens Computers. The device is available in the market.

fujitsu-lifebook-p8020_laptop

The new LIFEBOOK P8020 is a stylish, high-performance companion in everyday business life. It is ideal either as desktop alternative plus port replicator or – thanks to an integrated optical disk drive – as a fully-fledged mobile workplace. Thanks to state-of-the-art Intel® Centrino® 2 processor technology, the computing performance leaves nothing to be desired. High energy efficiency levels – due to built-in energy-saving functions such as the EcoButton – mean that the device can run without a power source for the whole working day.

The elegant piano style makes the LIFEBOOK P8020 look good as well. However, in contrast to its predecessor P8010, it is now all in black with the palm rest matching the rest of the housing instead of being anthracite in color.

Wireless communication is the main requirement within the business environment. With this in mind, Fujitsu Siemens Computers equipped the LIFEBOOK P8020 – and its entire range of notebooks – with WLAN and Bluetooth, as well as including the option of built-in high-speed 3G/UMTS. You can access your data easily anywhere even if there isn’t a hotspot nearby. A camera integrated into the notebook enables you to chat easily through video with your colleagues.

The second main requirement in the business environment is data security. The LIFEBOOK P8020 gains valuable points here as well. A SmartCard controller, the option of a TPM module and an integrated fingerprint sensor turn the notebook into a FortKnox for company data. The stable magnesium cover, the spill-proof keyboard and the ShockSensor reliably protect the hard disk against any physical damage.

Yet another highlight: the four application buttons that ensure the user has access to decisive system settings and applications at the push of a button. The EcoButton switches off unwanted functions in order to save energy and increase battery life when on the move. The MobilityCenter button guides the user directly to the mobile settings, and the LaunchCenter button jumps to the configuration profile. Last but not least, the LockWorkstation button enables you to shutdown the system in a matter of seconds, providing additional security for data and hardware that is essential when travelling.

This range of functions in such a compact form makes the LIFEBOOK P8020 the ideal partner for frequent-traveler business people, such as sales representatives, consultants or media and advertising freelancers, for whom the notebook has the same status as their mobile telephone: indispensable. An optional 64 GB SSD completes the attractive offering.
