We are confident that the agile mindset we have cultivated with the support of our Fujitsu and Red Hat coaches will give us the breakthrough we need to accelerate our efforts in supply chain management.”

Background

As the latest milestone in a collaboration between Fujitsu and Red Hat, first announced in March 2022, Fujitsu will launch its agile consulting services, which leverage the consulting expertise and engineering resources of Red Hat’s Open Innovation Labs to further develop its DX business.

Since its launch in 2016, Red Hat Open Innovation Labs has offered customers access to DX consulting services that drive innovative change in the areas of corporate culture, organization, processes, and technology.

The two companies have set up an organically optimal system according to the target area and the characteristics of customers and are working to expand the market.

Panasonic Connect develops, manufactures, markets, and provides professional services for equipment and software for the supply chain, public services, consumer infrastructure, and entertainment sectors globally. Successful customer use cases include the development of key parts of the software business as a joint solution with Blue Yonder. At the beginning of development, Panasonic Connect was promoting agile development on its own. However, as the expansion of the scope of development required Panasonic Connect to run multiple teams on its own, it decided to adopt Fujitsu’s agile consulting services on the strength of its offering with Red Hat.
