Cloud services of one kind or another are already widely used. And the idea of an in-house 'app store' offering self-service access to applications, services and data has taken root during the last year or two.
The Fujitsu Cloud Integration Platform has been developed to ride both of these trends.
The idea is to make it easier for IT organisations to offer a curated range of cloud services alongside those delivered in-house, with a consistent set of management tools and a single user portal.
The Platform can be run on-premises, in the cloud, or as a managed service.
Fujitsu also offers consulting and managed services to help organisations select and use the most appropriate cloud services.
"It is clear from regular discussions with our customers they not only want, but need, a 'single 'pane of glass' to integrate, aggregate and manage their growing portfolio of cloud services, regardless of whether they are deployed by an IT department, or sourced from the cloud and procured by their business units," said Fujitsu executive vice president for solutions Cameron McNaught.
"Fujitsu Cloud Integration Platform not only delivers on this growing requirement, but provides a platform for the future.
"It will allow CIOs and their teams to become cloud enablers, supporting the adoption of cloud services and managing them in a simple, consistent and compliant way."
A limited number of early adopters are being accepted for Fujitsu Cloud Integration Platform.
Pricing and general availability have yet to be announced.
