"Fujitsu is pleased to be recognized in the 2010 Supply & Demand Chain Executive 100, which comes on the heels of record-setting growth in the manufacturing sector. Mid-market organizations that shed resources during the market downturn are looking to rebuild using partners like Fujitsu as a way to gain more agility and reduce time to value. This is not "good old fashioned outsourcing," but rather a new model based on a clear value statement and a structure that turns the partner into an extension of the IT organization. We are excited to be taking this model directly to the mid-market."
