Tell us about Fujitsu’s 20-year history of working on the island with Sigma.

Sigma CEO Robert Sillars.

Robert Sillars, CEO, Sigma, replies:

‘IN RECENT weeks you have heard from Duncan Tait of global technology company Fujitsu as he has outlined his vision for a digital future for the island of Guernsey. This week, we would like to share a more local perspective on technology from a company that has been supporting businesses for more than 80 years locally – Sigma.

‘Sigma is very proud of its heritage, and many local businesses will recognise our brand – but some may not realise that we have been working in partnership with Fujitsu on the island for more than 20 years.

‘Our partnership is underpinned by trust and complementary values; Sigma brings a strong local presence, people and resources, to which Fujitsu adds its global scale and expertise, along with leading-edge technologies. We have a shared culture of responsible business, which is borne out by Fujitsu’s recent commitment to making a donation to the St Peter Port Christmas Lights Charity, allowing Le Bordage to participate in this year’s Christmas Festival for the first time in 15 years.

‘Fujitsu and Sigma understand the culture and uniqueness of Guernsey and in future we want to create robust ICT that will serve as a platform for future growth, enabling Guernsey to drive public service reform and economic development – in the interests of creating a sustainable and digital future for the island.

‘Over the last 12 months through an ever-deepening relationship with Sigma, Fujitsu has increased its commitment to Guernsey, providing innovation and access to world class solutions to both the private and public sectors.

‘As a global company, Fujitsu wants to bring the best technologies to Guernsey, from our experience of implementing them around the world. We believe this will allow Guernsey to unlock a world of opportunity – today, tomorrow and beyond. We look forward to finding out what the next 20 years will bring.’
