SUNNYVALE, CA -- (MARKET WIRE) -- April 18, 2006 --Fujitsu today unveiled its strategy for growth in North America and for solidifying its position as one of the world's leading strategic solutions providers for the enterprise. At the first-ever "Media Day" at the Silicon Valley campus of Fujitsu Computer Systems -- the Japanese company's North American subsidiary -- Fujitsu discussed a three-pronged strategy for organic growth, strategic acquisitions, and the role that Fujitsu Computer Systems will play in delivering solutions to the "next generation enterprise."

"As the strategic solutions provider for the next-generation enterprise, Fujitsu's goal is to deliver market specific solutions comprised of state-of-the-art hardware, scalable software and comprehensive services to our customers," said Toshio Morohoshi, President and CEO at Fujitsu Computer Systems and Corporate Executive Officer of Fujitsu Ltd. "These solutions will drive us to $10 billion dollars in revenue in North America by 2010, while offering unprecedented technology innovation, choice and reliability -- the hallmarks of Fujitsu's rich 70-year heritage."

"Media Day: The Next-Generation Enterprise" was held at Fujitsu's TRIOLE Integration Center in Sunnyvale, a state-of-the-art facility for solutions integration and assurance. At the event, company executives discussed the TRIOLE® strategy, which provides customers with hardware, software, solutions and services that optimize the IT infrastructure and improve business agility. TRIOLE is based on three core strategies: virtualization, automation and integration. Fujitsu has applied these principles to design and deliver highly adaptive IT solutions with the highest levels of compatibility and consistency. The result enables customers to increase efficiency, enhance agility, and improve continuity -- now and into the future.

Fujitsu also discussed a number of developments that support the "next-generation enterprise." Fujitsu is committed to providing enterprises with all the components they need -- e.g., service-oriented architecture, infrastructure, mobility -- as they shift from static to highly dynamic IT architectures. Among other news, Fujitsu discussed the following:

-- An agreement by Fujitsu, BMC Software, HP and IBM to create a new interoperability specification designed to enable customers to federate and access information from their complex, multi-vendor IT infrastructures.
