New peer-to-peer communications features introduced with My Ecosystem Connect empower Fujitsu SELECT partners to identify, contact and engage with solutions providers and peers within the framework of the Partner Ecosystem Platform. The latest enhancements deliver a curated shortlist of regional experts and enable channel and non-reselling partners to start interacting directly or via a discussion forum.
By pooling complementary skills, knowledge and resources, partners can collectively access more extensive opportunities without investing heavily in expanding their skillsets. The Fujitsu SELECT Ecosystem Platform enables partners to identify collaborators with complementary expertise and makes it easy to start working together immediately. Partners simply need to search, for example, for a capability such as machine learning expertise or an IoT service. The pre-validated options presented also enable direct connections to one or more of the providers. Collaborations start with a single click – without having to leave the platform.
Fernanda Catarino, Head of Channel, Alliances and Ecosystem, Europe at Fujitsu said, “channel partners today find themselves working in a so-called ‘frenemy’ economy. Companies they once considered as competitors are now also potential collaborators. We aim to empower our ecosystem to generate new business value by bringing together new combinations of their superpowers. The latest evolution of the Ecosystem Platform makes it easy not only to find a perfect match but also to start collaborating immediately.”
The Ecosystem platform now also features communities focused on the strategic areas of SAP, Hybrid Cloud, Workplace and Data-Driven Transformation, where partners can discuss their latest business challenges, share opinions, or ask for input.
