Fujitsu study confirms digital transformation is driving unstoppable shifts in retail

Fujitsu logo

News facts:

  • Survey highlights the increasing strategic importance of digital transformation and enabling technologies for the retail sector.
  • Retail finance departments lead transformation, followed by sales, customer service and frontline retail operations.
  • As retailing moves more online, online-to-offline customer experience remains critical for future success.

Digital transformation (DX) in the retail sector is accepted as essential and is now unstoppable, according to a new global study released by Fujitsu. More than two-thirds of retailers in nine countries, including Australia, see DX as essential to retail technology, and only seven per cent disagree. (1)

With online and physical shopping experiences moving closer together, results from the research by DataDriven for Fujitsu confirm that most DX is now well underway at most retailers. Finance departments are leading the way, with a mature implementation in place or well underway for 63 per cent of respondents. Sales (62 per cent), customer service (59 per cent) and frontline retail operations (also 59 per cent) are close behind.

Conway Kosi, vice president, sales, customer service management, and marketing, Oceania, Fujitsu, said, “COVID-19 has created a unique challenge for retailers around the world, particularly those who have a reliance on a physical retail presence.. Retailers with digital capabilities have been the ones who were most capable of pivoting to offer new products and services during this time. Fujitsu has been working closely with some of Australia’s largest retailers to help drive their digital transformation through this period of disruption.

“The changes in the retail industry will likely remain in place well into the future, and it’s encouraging to see that retailers around the world have recognised this shift and are working to future-proof their businesses. The strong adoption of digital transformation by finance teams just demonstrates its incredible power to affect the bottom line. This survey illuminates the deep changes in the retail industry, which are mostly an acceleration of the trends that were already in motion.”

Online and physical retail continue to move closer

DX is underpinning strategic shifts in retail identified in the global study. These include:

  • Retailers are increasingly introducing online sales. More than one-third (34 per cent) now offer most of their products and services online, a trend accelerated by the global COVID-19 crisis.
  • Many retailers are operating a hybrid online and physical model which relies on initiatives such as ‘buy online, pick-up in-store’ (BOPIS), with almost two-thirds (64 per cent) of retailers agreeing that online and physical retail continue to move closer together.
  • Opening up the availability of retail data to buyers, such as current inventory levels of product, is increasing with almost seven in 10 retailers (69 per cent) also seeing this as a positive move for vendors.

Further impacts of DX on retailers include:

  • Cost reduction, most prominently in logistics, warehousing and transportation, noted by 21 per cent of respondents. Other areas where DX is reducing costs are in finance (20 per cent), maintenance (20 per cent), operations (19 per cent), ICT (18 per cent) and retail operations (18 per cent).
  • In customer service, 29 per cent of respondents report an improvement. Other customer-facing areas to show improvement are call centre (19 per cent), marketing (16 per cent) and workplace innovation (16 per cent).

Public cloud is outpacing private and hybrid cloud

In terms of DX technology choices, cloud is an increasing important component of ICT processing in retail. Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) is the most popular application source (32 per cent). But significant numbers of retailers are sticking with in-house processing (24 per cent) or off-the-shelf enterprise applications (18 per cent).

Despite the massive attention given to cloud computing over the last decade, very few retailers believe it is overhyped. If anything, they say it is not being given the attention it deserves. Cloud skeptics are mainly the retailers who have retained most of their processing in-house.

AI has a big future in retail and the Internet of Things will be important but not just yet

Artificial intelligence (AI) is increasingly important in retail, with more than two-thirds of respondents (69 per cent) regarding it as an opportunity and only a slightly smaller number (66 per cent) believing it will improve quality of life and help create new jobs. Although technologies associated with the Internet of Things (IoT) have many applications in retail, adoption is still slow, although 69 per cent believe the technology will eventually revolutionise retail.

Empowering retailers to design their future transformation

Fujitsu believes in empowering customers to design their future transformation to ensure they can best address strategic priorities and maximise shareholder experience. Fujitsu’s co-creating program offers retailers the opportunity to harness the power of purpose-driven collaboration, and leverage Fujitsu’s human-centric experience design (HXD) to derive greater business value through better-informed DX-related investments and decisions. Fast-paced, highly-focused co-creation sessions, led by trained Fujitsu HXD practitioners, give retailers the time, space, and empowerment to shape their transformation, mapped against a clear future business purpose. Offered virtually, these sessions span timezones, with customers contributing the commitment of time, diversity of participants and a transformation-driven mindset.

‘Gadi’ achieves Australia’s highest ranking in the Global 500 Supercomputer index

Fujitsu logo

News facts:

  • Australia’s fastest supercomputer, designed and commissioned by Fujitsu for the National Computational Infrastructure (NCI), has been ranked 25 in the world in the latest Global 500 Supercomputer index.
  • The supercomputer has ranked 25 in the global TOP500 list, which is most powerful supercomputer in the Southern Hemisphere and 8 times more powerful than the National Computational Infrastructure’s (NCI) previous supercomputer, also supplied by Fujitsu in 2012.
  • The supercomputer will help solve some of the most complex and pressing challenges facing the world and time has already been allocated to new research projects focused on COVID-19 as well as climate modelling, renewable energy and astrophysics.
  • The machine was named ‘Gadi’, which means ‘to search for’ in the language of the Ngunnawal, the traditional owners of the Canberra region.
  • The supercomputer was purpose-built for the NCI from technology sourced from Fujitsu and other vendors.

Fujitsu has announced that Gadi, Australia’s fastest supercomputer, has achieved a ranking of 25 in the TOP500 project worldwide supercomputer ranking, which is published twice yearly. This was announced at the International Supercomputing Conference, which was hosted as a virtual event for the first time.

Gadi, which has been operational since January this year, is playing a key role in the advancement of Australian research, with computing time already allocated to recipients of research grants for projects including drug design, drug discovery and vaccine development in relation to the COVID-19 pandemic. Research projects focused on climate modelling, renewable energy and astrophysics have also been allocated an additional 180 million units of compute time, which is equivalent to one computer doing constant calculations for 20,000 years.

The supercomputer, housed at The Australian National University (ANU) in Canberra and operated by the National Computational Infrastructure (NCI), represents a successful collaboration between NCI, Fujitsu and its vendors. The high-end computing expertise of Fujitsu and its vendors complements the rich portfolio of research carried out by universities, government agencies and industry.

Gadi provides a transformative collaborative platform to advance the outcomes and ambition of Australian research. The new machine is currently operating 8 times more powerfully than the previous supercomputer, which was also provided by Fujitsu. This means Australian researchers will continue to have access to world-class, high-end computing services to power their work.

NCI operates as a formal collaboration between ANU, CSIRO, Geoscience Australia, and the Bureau of Meteorology, whose researchers will use Gadi to search for answers to the most important questions facing Australia and the world.

Mike Foster, CEO, Fujitsu Australia and New Zealand, said, “We are proud that Gadi has achieved this impressive result in the TOP500, and that Fujitsu is continuing to play a role in the advancement of Australian research. This project is a true collaboration between Fujitsu, NCI and the many other organisations that made this leading-edge development possible.

“Following on from the success of its predecessor, Gadi is shaping up to be another important milestone in the relationship between Fujitsu and the NCI. Australia leads the world in many research areas and it is encouraging that this project has been made possible with Australian government funding under the National Collaborative Research Infrastructure Strategy (NCRIS). Fujitsu looks forward to seeing the positive outcomes that will be made possible by Gadi.”

Fujitsu’s relationship with the ANU and NCI dates back more than 30 years to the 1980s when Fujitsu provided one of the university’s first supercomputers. Although one of Australia’s most powerful computers at the time, in today’s terms it had the processing power of an early iPad. Gadi is tens of millions of times faster than that computer.

In addition to the ranking of Gadi as the fastest supercomputer in Australia, Fugaku, the supercomputer jointly developed by Fujitsu and RIKEN, has been ranked #1 in the global TOP500 list. Fujitsu was also well represented in the TOP500 supercomputing index with 13 Fujitsu machines included in the ranking this year.

Professor Sean Smith, Director of NCI Australia, said “Gadi represents a milestone for Australian research. We are pleased to continue our long-standing relationship with Fujitsu and its network to offer Australian researchers world-class computing resources to take us into the next decade.”

The other organisations working with Fujitsu in creating Gadi include:

  • Lenovo
  • Intel
  • NVIDIA
  • NetApp
  • DDN (Lustre)
  • Altair
  • APC by Schneider Electric.

Gadi uses both Fujitsu and Lenovo innovative direct liquid cooling technologies with warm water, allowing for high-density computing. The system features Fujitsu PRIMERGY CX2570 M5 servers. Click here to watch the timelapse video of the Gadi installation.

‘Plan now or be left behind’ – Research links workforce transformation to strategic performance

Fujitsu logo

News facts:

  • There is a clear link between workforce transformation and an organisation’s strategic performance, according to an Economist Intelligence Unit survey sponsored by Fujitsu.
  • Workforce transformation is about improving the employee experience and untethering productive work from physical locations.
  • Before COVID-19, innovative organisations were letting employees work alone or in squads from any location while still being able to collaborate and innovate seamlessly and securely.
  • The workforce of the future will be made up of people in various locations with their own or company-issued devices, all requiring immediate and reliable access to company data and applications.
  • To accommodate this securely, organisations will need to proactively transform their underlying technology.
  • Fujitsu recommends that organisations plan their workforce transformation now so they don’t get left behind.

A research survey published by the Economist Intelligence Unit and sponsored by Fujitsu confirms that there is a clear link between workforce transformation and strategic performance. Before COVID-19 forced most knowledge workers out of their offices and into their homes, workforce transformation was already untethering professionals from prescribed office spaces and locations and letting them be productive from anywhere in the world. The ability to work from home means staff can continue to be productive even while the COVID-19 pandemic response requires people to practice social distancing and avoid non-essential travel.

The ability for staff to work from anywhere allows companies to take advantage of the market’s best talent regardless of where people reside, bringing together teams from all over the world to collaborate and innovate. However, individuals working alone or in squads require consistent and secure access to company data and applications without risking the organisation’s valuable intellectual property and information becoming vulnerable or exposed.

This creates a significant challenge for organisations still relying on legacy systems to deliver the employee experience. The need for organisations to become more resilient and scalable due to rapid market changes means that workforce transformation—the process of enabling employees to be productive from anywhere and at any time without compromising security—is one of the most important priorities for modern businesses.

There is a clear link between organisations that successfully transform their workforce and those that over-deliver on their strategic objectives, according to the survey of 200 executives across 8 countries including Australia.

Ramy Ibrahim, Head of Portfolio, Digital Workplace Services for Fujitsu Australia and New Zealand, said, “The workforce of the future was already becoming a reality in many organisations. Technology is a key enabler for this, from providing optimised physical working environments to creating new ways for employees to securely collaborate. Providing consumer-grade experience at enterprise grade security will be key to a successful workforce transformation. This process is currently rapidly occurring in many leading businesses.”

In most organisations, the CEO or CIO takes responsibility for workforce transformation, according to the study. The most common measures undertaken in support of workforce transformation are new technology adoption (56 per cent) and skills training (54 per cent). Many (39 per cent) are also looking to design or improve the employee experience. Tactical measures such as changing human resources policies or re-designing organisational structures are employed less frequently.

Hallmarks of the modern workforce include less reliance on people for mundane, repetitive tasks that can be automated, and increased expectation for humans to handle tasks that require higher-order thinking and creative problem-solving. This creates an environment where people are more fulfilled in their work and know that their contribution is meaningful.

Ramy Ibrahim said, “Organisations will need to decide what aspects of work can be automated and what this means for their workforce. Shifting tasks to automated systems could mean that staff members need to be trained in new areas. Or, the business may want to reconsider its mix of part-time and full-time workers. The most important skills workers can possess in a transformed workforce are the ability to collaborate, innovate and creatively solve problems. It is important to note that a primary driver of workforce transformation is creating a positive working environment, which in turn leads to the creation of a better customer experience.”

The study revealed that the biggest changes were happening in organisations with knowledge workers (41 per cent versus 29 per cent), and 79 per cent of organisations said their workforce transformation would accelerate in the next three years. Only 22 per cent of respondents in Australia and New Zealand said they had already transformed their workforce extensively, while 58 per cent said they had done so ‘somewhat’. COVID-19 may well become known for significantly accelerating this workforce transformation in Australia and New Zealand.

However, there are potential costs and unwanted side effects of workforce transformation. Three-quarters of survey respondents cited one-off costs and increased employment overheads as negative consequences of workforce transformation. Increased staff turnover was also encountered by 70 per cent of firms.

Resistance to change was a common barrier to workforce transformation for 38 per cent of respondents, followed by a lack of understanding of what constitutes the ideal workforce according to 35 per cent of Australians surveyed. This suggests a failure to think strategically about what transformation requires from the staff and how to communicate to employees the benefit to them of being part of the future workforce.

Once the immediate threat of COVID-19 has passed, and to reduce future risks, organisations may find themselves looking to create a new type of workforce. There are four ways organisations can mitigate issues associated with workforce transformation:

1. Let strategy inform the makeup of the workforce. Overarching strategic goals must drive decisions around skills needs and training, the use of temporary labour, or where staff should be located.

2. Develop and articulate a clear vision. Workforce decisions can’t be made at a department level; they must be made with the entire workforce in mind. The organisation-wide vision should be communicated clearly to gain staff buy-in.

3. Understand where digital and workforce transformation do not overlap. Digital and workforce transformation should be closely aligned but digital transformation should be seen as an enabler of workforce transformation, not its determinant. It’s essential to leverage non-digital factors to support workforce transformation.

4. Minimise the inevitable costs. Workplace transformation will incur costs in skills development and upgrading technology infrastructure, among others. However, it’s essential where possible to ensure that changes don’t unduly increase complexity or damage employee morale.

Ramy Ibrahim said, “With so much change happening right now, it’s essential for Australian organisations to work proactively to streamline their workforce transformation. They need to put the right tools in place that facilitate collaboration, communication, and connectedness while maintaining strong security. The focus must be on supporting a different type of workplace characterised by geographically dispersed team members, a mix of employee-owned and company-provided devices, and an ongoing need for collaboration. And, it’s essential to underpin all of this with comprehensive security solutions that keep data safe without impeding access or the ability to do business.”

Fujitsu introduces the fi-800R, the compact and versatile scanner for the front office

Fujitsu logo

News facts:

  • Fujitsu has released the fi-800R, a dramatically compact A4 versatile image scanner for front office use.
  • Designed for limited workspaces like reception desks and service counters, this new model is now available in Australia and New Zealand.
  • Equipped with a dual path mechanism, the compact device offers two ways of scanning: return scan, perfect for scanning passports and ID cards; and U-turn scan, suitable for continuous scanning.
  • The new model offers faster and more reliable hassle-free scanning, including automatic skew correction, which prevents documents from jamming or a part of a scanned image from missing.

Fujitsu has announced the release of the fi-800R in Australia and New Zealand. The fi-800R is a dramatically compact A4 versatile image scanner for front office use in the fi Series line-up. (1)

To meet increasing demands for scanning small documents, Fujitsu has developed the fi-800R, the new compact A4 compatible scanner to assist both booklet scanning and continuous ADF document scanning. (2) The device also comes with the scanner’s world-first technology that corrects skewed documents one at a time as well as software that checks document orientation and sorts documents for simplified pre-scanning operation. (3) These powerful yet simple operations reduce operator workload and assist reception operations, helping users provide better customer service.

Peter Uher, head of portfolio for Fujitsu Products, said, “As the smallest image scanner in its class, the fi-800R is simply easy to operate and the ideal scanner for limited workspaces like reception desks and service counters. (4) We are seeing an increase in demand for small document scanning due to the digitalisation and automation of processes across a number of industries to improve the efficiency of operations over the counter. For example, identification documents such as passports can be digitised easily to streamline processes relating to financial transactions, as well as health and immigration matters.”

Key features

Versatile scanning with space-saving design and stress-free usability
The fi-800R is the smallest scanner in its class and is designed to fit in any limited space. Equipped with a dual path mechanism, the device comes with return scan, perfect for scanning passports and ID cards, and U-turn scan, suitable for continuous scanning. The scanner automatically switches to the appropriate path depending on the location that documents are loaded so that users can complete scanning a mixed batch of documents at once without any interruptions to switch the paths on the scanner or profile settings in the software.

Return scan for passports and ID cards
The return scan functionality lets users scan documents of up to five mm thick from complete start to finish in front of the scanner. Designed for reception use, the device easily scans identification documents such as thick plastic cards or passports, as well as folded documents, all without carrier sheet use. Documents are ejected from where they were originally scanned in, letting users scan and retrieve documents efficiently.

U-turn scan for fast continuous scanning with an A5-size footprint
Equipped with automatic document feeder (ADF), the fi-800R scans A4-size documents continuously at a high speed of 40 ppm/80 ipm (colour, 200 dpi/300 dpi). With this scanning method, U-turn scan, documents are placed in from the top of the device and eject again from the top. The stacker starts extending as scanning is initiated and returns to its initial state once scanning is completed with automatic stacking technology, so that users can start loading subsequent batches easily. These features facilitate the scanner’s space-saving design, and let users to scan, organise and retrieve documents while multi-tasking with the other hand.

Fast, reliable, and hassle-free scanning for a better customer experience
The fi-800R has new feeding mechanisms that ensure steady scanning, eliminating the need to rescan documents. The automatic skew correction, which corrects skewed documents one by one, prevents documents from jamming or a part of a scanned image from being missed, even when documents are roughly set. The active separation structure, another new mechanism, prevents multi-feed errors by applying an adjusted optimal amount of pressure to separate documents, according to the thickness or condition of a document to be scanned. Even when the scanner is used at a reception desk or service counter where swift operation is required, it ensures steady scanning and supports smooth workflow without keeping customers waiting.

Advanced software improves workflow before and after scanning
The functions of PaperStream IP and PaperStream Capture, scanner driver and capture software for fi Series respectively, have been further enhanced to improve operators’ overall productivity, by reducing the number of operations before and after scanning. For passport scanning, information such as passport number, name and nationality, which is contained at MRZ area of the passport, can be extracted by PaperStream Capture to make entry of customer information efficient. (5)

The front side detection function automatically determines front and back side to organise scanned images in the correct order based on the photo of a face on a passport or ID card, so that users do not have to check whether or not documents are scanned in facing upward. (6) With the automatic profile selection function, which automatically determines the best profile for a document based on pre-registered formats of specific documents, users can produce the best scanned images without sorting documents beforehand or performing multiple scans with multiple application formats.

List price
A$1,099 (ex GST)

New Research Collaboration Takes Aim at Brain Aneurysms with Artificial Intelligence

Fujitsu

News facts:

  • An Australian initiative between Fujitsu, GE Healthcare, Macquarie University, and Macquarie Medical Imaging leveraging artificial intelligence (AI) to detect brain aneurysms faster and more efficiently.
  • Solution will help overcome the significant challenge to rapidly and accurately detect and monitor brain aneurysms, with often very limited time to review each case.
  • Brain aneurysms are present in at least 2 per cent of adults globally.
  • The project has received AU$2.1M in funding from the Department of Industry, Innovation and Science.

 

Sydney, AustraliaFujitsu Australia, GE Healthcare, Macquarie University and Macquarie Medical Imaging today announced a new research collaboration to improve brain aneurysm diagnoses. The project is focused on developing a solution that leverages artificial intelligence (AI) to detect and monitor brain aneurysms on scans faster and more efficiently.

The project has already received a Cooperative Research Centres Projects (CRC-P) grant of AU$2.1M from the Department of Industry, Innovation and Science.

Brain aneurysms are a common disorder caused by a weakness in the wall of a brain artery. Aneurysms are present in between two and eight per cent of adults (1), with multiple aneurysms in more than 10 per cent of these people (1). Rupture of an aneurysm causes brain haemorrhage in 85 per cent of cases (2), leading to death in 30-40 per cent of people and 20 per cent permanent disability in those who survive (3).

Fujitsu will lead the initiative and leverage its AI and digital solutions capability through its dedicated innovation team in Australia. GE Healthcare will contribute through its leading medical imaging technology. Macquarie University and Macquarie Medical Imaging will provide clinical expertise for the development and testing of the technology. Initially the project will focus on refining the technology with a view to creating a fully commercialised solution that will be distributed initially through radiology practices in Australia and eventually on a worldwide basis.

Mike Foster, Chief Executive Officer of Fujitsu Australia and New Zealand, said: “We are pleased to be part of this important ‘co-creation’ initative that leverages the strengths of each of our partners, as well as Fujitsu’s experience in AI to have a positive impact on peoples’ lives. AI in particular has the capability to make our daily lives more comfortable and contribute to solving difficult problems such as detecting serious medical issues early and allowing more timely treatment intervention. This is an excellent demonstration of Fujitsu’s commitment to creating human-centric innovation together with our customers and partners to build a trusted future where everyone can feel safe.”

Matt Tucker, President and CEO GE Healthcare Australia & New Zealand, comments, “As the consequences of brain aneurysm rupture are often fatal, effective and expedient detection is crucial. Unfortunately screening and monitoring takes time and specialist expertise not afforded by every radiology practice. The application of AI can give doctors better insights more quickly and produce fewer variable results. We are proud to be part of this program that will transform brain aneurysm diagnosis and improve patient outcomes.”

Professor Patrick McNeil, Deputy Vice Chancellor Medicine and Health and Executive Dean, Faculty of Medicine and Health Sciences, Macquarie University, said, “This is an excellent example of the MQ Health model of “Heal, Learn and Discover” in action with industry. Macquarie University, with its own hospital and clinical expertise is well placed to actively contribute to the development of applied medical innovations and welcomes the opportunity to work with leading information technology, healthcare and diagnostic companies such as Fujitsu, GE Healthcare and Macquarie Medical Imaging.”

Professor John Magnussen, Diagnostic and Interventional Radiologist at Macquarie Medical Imaging, said, “This is an amazing opportunity to be able to address the problem of the rapid and accurate diagnosis of brain aneurysms. Even in ideal circumstances, detecting brain aneurysms is time and expertise intensive and missed aneurysms can have terrible outcomes. By creating an AI assistant to automatically flag potential aneurysms and allow for accurate follow-up, we can make a huge difference to patient care.”

As a part of the project, Fujitsu will apply AI methods to images of the brain generated by GE’s Revolution CT scanner, and use a specifically-trained algorithm to look for abnormalities and aneurysms.

Outcomes from this project are anticipated to include the development and validation of an AI algorithm capable of highlighting blood vessels within the circle of Willis, an arterial ring sited at the base of the brain, that may have one or more aneurysms. This technology will also allow the tracking of identified aneurysms over time, providing radiologists with a valuable diagnostic support tool and patients with greater peace of mind that known aneurysms are being effectively monitored over the long term.

A second element to the project will include a planning tool for surgical (stent) intervention. This tool will use fluid dynamic modelling to predict the risk of aneurysm rupture.
