Bangalore, June 30, 2015 – Fujitsu today launches the new SELECT Global Innovation Award, created to recognize channel partners’ exceptional role in helping to put Human Centric Innovation in Action on behalf of customer organizations around the world. The first awards will be made at Fujitsu Forum in Munich in November 2015, and nominations are now invited at http://www.fujitsu.com/select-innovation. The ultimate winner will receive EURO 10,000 for Sales Development Funds to be used in joint marketing with Fujitsu, among other great benefits for each of the top three finalists.
In our radically changing world, underlying IT technologies can be optimized and used to help businesses to respond and grow – however, many enterprises are struggling to find the right path to digital transformation. Part of the Fujitsu’s roadmap for growth is enabling its 16,200 – and growing – SELECT Partner Program Members to better support enterprises’ innovative use of Fujitsu’s products, services and solutions.
Veerle Limbos, Vice President, Global Channel Business, Fujitsu says: “The SELECT Global Innovation Award is an important component in Fujitsu’s recognition of SELECT Registered Members and SELECT Experts. The finalists and an overall winner will exemplify what it means to be a trusted business advisor and provide true transformative value by putting Human Centric Innovation in Action.”
One winner and two finalists will be selected by a committee of expert judges consisting of Fujitsu executives. The criteria for the selection will be the impact of the project in creating a Human Centric Intelligent Society, the portfolio elements in alignment with the concepts set out in the Fujitsu Technology and Service Vision (i.e. integration, mobility, big data, security, cloud, integrated computing, and software-defined connected infrastructure solutions), the Channel partner level in the SELECT Partner Program and the areas of SELECT expertise. Customer examples of Human Centric Innovation in Action are also provided.
This new Award joins the Fujitsu SELECT Awards as another one in a wide range of benefits for Program members. Fujitsu’s SELECT Partner Program was relaunched in April 2015 to deliver unbeatable value to its growing international base of channel partners around the world, founded on three cornerstones:
