As more Japanese companies head overseas, there is a growing need for business application among these overseas subsidiaries.
More specifically, the head office in Japan want centralized control of management information, the same level of IT governance at overseas sites, and improved operations and efficiency at overseas subsidiaries.
At the same time, businesses are concerned about remaining flexible when dealing with establishing a new business, expanding an existing business, and buying a company, or when downsizing or exiting a market.
Other big issues include the management of IT resources overseas and having sufficient resources. One of the solutions for dealing with this situation quickly and efficiently is the use of the increasingly popular SaaS in the cloud as a core system.
IIIJ Group and B-EN-G have begun to work more closely together to deliver jointly developed enterprise-class solutions to overseas subsidiaries. The most recent effort is A.S.I.A. GP SaaS on IIJ GIO, which is based on the G-BASS ERP Lite service that IIJ Global has been delivering as a cloud-version of A.S.I.A.
