Tasked with hosting and managing the entire European Infrastructure of Bridgestone – migrating IT systems from Hewlett Packard to new UK centralized facilities, Fujitsu soon realized this was a perilous exercise. Changing the strategic perspective of this from ‘server’ to ‘system’ enabled a new focus and paved the way to deal with business prioritization, interdependencies between systems, migration risks, business risks and planification of migration batches and testing - while maintaining business continuity.
