Fujitsu to Reorganize Nifty Corporation. Executed through an absorption-type company split and effective April 1, 2017, the result will be the reorganization of Nifty as a cloud-focused company for enterprises, and a consumer ISP company.
To effectively utilize the expertise and assets that Nifty has developed, while further raising corporate value, the consumer business company will be transferred to Nojima Corporation on April 1, 2017.
1. Enterprise business focused on cloud business
Having rolled out the FUJITSU Digital Business Platform MetaArc, its digital business platform to support the digital transformations of its customers, Fujitsu seeks to optimize customer systems and contribute to their business. By combining Fujitsu's cloud business expertise and customer platform with the expertise and performance of the Nifty Cloud developed by Nifty, the companies will further enhance their cloud business platforms. Specifically, with regard to Nifty Cloud, which is achieving significant sales growth, Fujitsu will work to continue to leverage such characteristics to quickly deliver agile services to customers, adding it to the FUJITSU Cloud Service K5 lineup of Fujitsu cloud services. This will work to enhance its ability to meet customer cloud usage needs. Aiming to further strengthen its MetaArc and K5 offerings, Fujitsu will work closely with the cloud business company to meet the cloud needs of its customers.
