Strengthening the Group's business base in the growth markets of the ASEAN region Providing global IT services and the latest solutions
As Japanese companies globalize at an accelerating rate, demands from clients to make use of IT environments with the same quality and functionality as their domestic systems at their overseas business locations are increasing. Given this state of affairs, CTC regards global expansion as an important business theme, and is driving new business in overseas markets by utilizing its extensive track record of large-scale system building in Japan, and know-how obtained through the provision of various (primarily data center based) cloud services.
In the ASEAN region, a high level of growth is anticipated in the IT market in particular, and numerous Japanese-based firms-primarily centered around the manufacturing industry-are now expanding their operations there. In July 2012, CTC invested in Thai IT enterprise Netband Consulting Co., Ltd. From the end of fiscal 2012, CTC also acquired IT enterprises in Malaysia and Singapore and made them CTC Group subsidiaries. Through initiatives such as these, we have worked to build an organizational structure that can cater to the needs of customers in the region.
Moving forward, we will deploy the high-level technological capabilities and IT service quality that we have developed in Japan to these three firms in Malaysia, Singapore and Thailand; and expand these businesses to regionally and locally-based, Japanese-run firms using the integrated, total capabilities of the CTC Group.
