I would like to offer greetings to everyone as we embark on a new year.
In 2018, CTC drew up a Medium-Term Management Plan dubbed "Opening New Horizons." Under the new plan covering the three years from fiscal 2018 to fiscal 2020, CTC aims at furthering its growth. In the four Horizons of "business reforms," "strong point enhancement," "development of new fields" and "business foundation buildups," the CTC Group will work to achieve Group-wide growth through to fiscal 2020. Already, the fruits of our efforts are becoming apparent in our recurring businesses and IoT business, whilst new initiatives in agile development, open innovation and global business are also now underway.
In 2019, 5G (the fifth generation of cellular mobile communications) will finally become a reality, and new technologies, such as diversification of payment methods, will bring about changes in our everyday lives. CTC plans to further strengthen business in its specialist area of IT Infrastructure & Network. Focusing on impending changes in areas such as cloud solutions – now in a process of hybridization, AI – a core technology of the future, and security solutions – an area of growing demand, we will keep on running and strive to realize our Medium-Term Management Plan.
Meanwhile, as exemplified by the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) adopted by UN member states in 2015, there are many social challenges that need to be addressed, not least eradication of poverty, respect for human rights, gender equality, and action on climate change.
The CTC Group defines its mission as "Leveraging IT's potential to change future for the Global Good." Such as supporting use of renewable energy, conserving energy use of computers which consume a great deal of electricity, and reducing food loss, CTC will contribute to realize a sustainable society thorough its main work.
