Blair called the deal "a significant and very welcome development in Anglo-Japanese trading relations."
The new agreement, announced Wednesday, means that Fujitsu will be able to deploy Dialog's InfoSort software in its products and services, while incorporating Dialog's online services into solutions for its customers worldwide.
Fujitsu plans to develop develop Japanese versions of both the InfoSort indexing and categorisation software and Dialog's knowledge management solution, LiveIntranet.
"For the past 18 months, we have been in negotiation with Fujitsu to conclude this landmark agreement which endorses the support received from those investors who have shared our vision since that time."
Dialog stands to gain substantial revenues as a result of the agreement, receiving royalties for licenses, services and support, plus further royalties for sales of online services and InfoSort sales.
By midday Wednesday, Dialog's shares had risen over ten percent on the news.
