Co-creating a Guinness World Record at Fujitsu Forum
Every November, we bring our customers, partners and employees together for one of the largest IT events in Europe – Fujitsu Forum.
The event is all about co-creation. Working together with our customers to develop the technological solutions that fit their unique needs.
This year, we wanted to do something to bring this to life.
So we decided to invite some of our customers to help us achieve something incredible and help set a new Guinness World Record.
Last night at the BMW Welt Museum in Munich, we welcomed over 60 customers to join the attempt to set a new record for the largest animated tablet computer mosaic.
We’re absolutely delighted to say that with our customers’ help we were able to set the record, as verified by GUINNESS WORLD RECORDS adjudicators!
Speaking to Duncan Tait, Corporate Executive Officer, SEVP and Head of Americas and EMEIA at Fujitsu, he commented:
“Co-creating a digital future with our customers is fundamental to the way Fujitsu approaches business. We’ve highlighted this focus with the theme for this year’s Fujitsu Forum “Human Centric Innovation – Digital Co-creation” which for us means bringing together the latest digital technology and expertise to create new possibilities for business and society. Achieving this GUINNESS WORLD RECORDS title with our customers epitomises this approach. The final image stylised Japanese landscape highlights how each collaborator has something important to contribute, to create a whole that is greater than the sum of its parts.”
Anna Orford, GUINNESS WORLD RECORDS adjudicator, added:
“GUINNESS WORLD RECORDS are synonymous with extraordinary achievement. We research, measure, document and authorise the word’s superlatives. We also strive to maintain our high standards and have strict policies governing what makes a world record. We were on hand to monitor the attempt to create a new world record, the world’s largest digital mosaic, and we confirm that Fujitsu is now included among the ranks of current GUINNESS WORLD RECORDS title holders. Congratulations to all who participated in this successful attempt.”
It was an absolute pleasure to be part of this achievement, and we thank all our customers for helping us.
And of course, it wouldn’t have been possible without a huge amount of hard work from our amazing technology & events team – a very big well done to all!
