New mainstream enterprise models come with all high-demand functions required to satisfy the needs of global customers
Tokyo, June 17, 2014 - (JCN Newswire) - Fujitsu today announced the simultaneous worldwide release of two new models in its FUJITSU PC LIFEBOOK E Series of laptops. Both of these models are uniformly designed for global enterprise customers and come equipped with the latest Windows 8.1 Pro operating system. Worldwide sales of the models begin today.
Within the LIFEBOOK E Series, these uniformly designed laptops for the enterprise are positioned as mainstream models loaded with all the basic functions in high demand by Fujitsu's global enterprise customers. With a port replicator and other accessories that can be used with other models in the E Series, Fujitsu delivers greater convenience for on-the-go use within offices.
Main Features of the New Products
1. Uniform design
The two models are the E554/J and the E544/J, which have a 15.6" LCD screen, and a 14.0" LCD screen, respectively. Apart from different screen sizes, these two laptops have a common design that enables shared use of not only internal components such as mainboard and BIOS, but also accessories that include port replicators, batteries, AC adapters, and multi-bay options(1) where peripheral units can be interchanged depending upon intended use. In offices with unassigned seating, shared accessories means that separate items need not be purchased for every computer, contributing to reduced ICT costs. The user manuals developed by PC operations managers and other items can be shared, so without increasing administrative costs, it becomes possible to flexibility choose the tool that best suits the business needs at any given time.
Furthermore, the same port replicator can be used with the high-end models in the E Series, namely the E754/H, the E744/H, and the E734/H, so that even when additional laptops are deployed, the existing port replicators can be used.
2. Improved usability
The models are equipped with the latest 4th-Generation Intel Core i5 Processor, delivering high-speed system processing while conserving power. In addition, they support the latest wireless LAN standard, IEEE 802.11ac(2), making it easy to download even heavy, high-volume data. These models were designed in consideration of ease of use, being equipped with multi-bay slots that enable the simple interchange of peripheral units in line with applications, as well as other features such as the common positioning of each interface across all E Series models. Moreover, for the E554/J, a serial port(3) is available as an option, enabling customers to connect their existing peripheral devices.
3. Support for an array of security functions
As options, the models can be custom-equipped with encrypted hard disk drives or encrypted solid state drives, fingerprint sensors, smartcard slots, and security chips, meeting the security needs of companies.
4. Ideal for deployment by global companies
These models offer a full lineup of the basic functions that are in high demand among Fujitsu's global enterprise customers, and all five models in the E Series can share optional accessories. By offering the same specifications worldwide, Fujitsu can support the procurement and deployment of laptops for customers doing business globally.
(1) Multi-bay option
Available for use are standard-equipped weight savers, custom-made DVD-ROM, and super multi-drive.
(2) Latest wireless LAN standard, IEEE 802.11ac
The maximum communication speed of this standard is up to 6.9Gbps, more than 11 times the speed of IEEE 802.11n, and it utilizes just the 5GHz band instead of the 2.4GHz band, which tends to get congested with IEEE802.11g and Bluetooth.
(3) Serial Port
A connection standard for connecting peripheral devices to PCs. This port can be used to connect a wide variety of peripheral devices, from communication devices such as analogue modems and ISDN terminal adapters, to PDAs to synchronize data, certain types of printers and plotters, and mouse devices.

IoT is at the core or many Digital Transformation initiatives with the goal of re-inventing a company's business model. We all agree that collecting relevant IoT data will result in massive amounts of data needing to be stored. However, with the rapid development of IoT devices and ongoing business model transformation, we are not able to predict the volume and growth of IoT data. And with the lack of IoT history, traditional methods of IT and infrastructure planning based on the past do not app...

When you focus on a journey from up-close, you look at your own technical and cultural history and how you changed it for the benefit of the customer. This was our starting point: too many integration issues, 13 SWP days and very long cycles. It was evident that in this fast-paced industry we could no longer afford this reality. We needed something that would take us beyond reducing the development lifecycles, CI and Agile methodologies. We made a fundamental difference, even changed our culture...

All organizations that did not originate this moment have a pre-existing culture as well as legacy technology and processes that can be more or less amenable to DevOps implementation. That organizational culture is influenced by the personalities and management styles of Executive Management, the wider culture in which the organization is situated, and the personalities of key team members at all levels of the organization. This culture and entrenched interests usually throw a wrench in the work...
