Comments from Seigo Sugimoto, corporate vice president, chief digital officer and general manager of ICT Strategy Division:
Fujifilm is accelerating DX initiatives in the medical systems business and in other business categories including life sciences and electronic materials. We adopt the perspective of group-wide optimization, building the data foundation shared across the group, and establishing a business operations platform under a cross-functional project which standardizes issues of different divisions. Fujifilm will continue to strongly promote Products and Services DX, Operations DX and Human Resources DX with the aim of enhancing innovative technologies and creating new value, thus actualizing sustainable innovation across the group.
Fujifilm Group’s DX initiatives
Fujifilm Group’s “DX Vision”
Fujifilm's relentless pursuit of a better world is entrenched in the Company's commitment to a more sustainable, healthier, and safer future. We are well prepared for taking on the greatest challenges of our time through the use of advanced and digital technology, valuable and innovative products and services, and from the connected contributions of every business, every team, and every individual at Fujifilm.
The Fujifilm Group is actively promoting DX, as seen in the internal launch of the Strategic ICT Promotion Project in 2014, for the purpose of achieving corporate transformation with the use of AI and IoT.
In 2021, the Fujifilm Group has set out its “DX Vision,” clarifying what the Group aims to achieve through DX. The Vision has three pillars, namely “Products and Services DX” for assisting customers’ DX acceleration by applying robotics and AI technologies to products and services, “Operations DX” that involves the use of software, etc. to fundamentally transform work processes and dramatically boost productivity, and “Human Resources DX” for promoting the development of DX human resources and optimizing personnel assignments with a data-driven approach. Fujifilm will move forward to fulfill the Vision by reinforcing the DX foundation, which is built with flexible and robust IT infrastructures supporting those three pillars.
In addition, Fujifilm has established the DX Strategy Council chaired by the CEO, as the highest-decision-making body on group-wide DX promotion in order to carry out the All-Fujifilm DX Promotion Program across the group. DX activities tend to suffer the pitfall of becoming caught out in division-specific optimization for product development and work process improvement. The DX initiatives such as transforming the supply chain and streamlining work processes will be orchestrated as DX activities of the group-wide scale.
The Fujifilm Group has also drawn up the DX Roadmap, setting out the path for further DX promotion to achieve the goal of establishing even a greater number of products and services as the foundation that supports a sustainable society by fiscal year 2030. The Fujifilm Group will embrace DX to continuously optimize value of products in order to maximize the customer outcomes. Furthermore, it will broaden the scope that its products and services influence to the entire society, and establish them as part of the foundation that supports society, thereby continuing to contribute to solving social issues.
Fujifilm will continue to create innovative products and services through DX, and continuously enhance the value that customers gain through these products and services in an effort to contribute to the establishment of a sustainable society.
