As a Cloud integration services provider, and a transformer of on-premise to Cloud-based environments, Clark said that is where Fujitsu adds value. Not only is the existing relationship between the two companies mature, Clark also describes Fujitsu as one of Citrix’s “most strategic SI partners in the world.” “Fujitsu’s workplace anywhere vision is aligned with Citrix’s, and they have bought into the notion of Cloud and mobility”.
