Software development business

[Strength of products/technologies]
Comprehensive technical skills are essential for getting the most from open-source software at a practical level. These include fully comprehending source code written in many different languages and constructing software that is modified or developed separately using appropriate architecture design. We have gained plenty of development experience in platform middleware and network-based systems since our inception. This includes the world’s first BREW (registered trademark) XML/SOAP middleware, which we developed jointly with KDDI and We have accumulated advanced technology and skills in open-source software. This is how we can handle requests for ground-up development of brand-new high-performance middleware, including database systems, search engines, and communications protocols.

[Representative's message]
Our fields of expertise are middleware and infrastructure solutions, which tend to have some of the most stringent performance and quality demands among all software technologies. Engineers in these software fields must have top-class development skills. These skills are in demand in the product and base technology development processes of major corporations. All our engineers aspire to take on challenging technology development projects and apply their technical skills and past experience. We are dedicated to improving our technical competencies to win recognition for our company, and our local Sapporo region, from major domestic Japanese and international corporations as an R&D firm.

[Company structure for market development/overseas expansion]
We have taken on multiple software development contracts. These are primarily technology development and R&D projects for major corporations. We have carried out projects ranging in scale from several man-months to 50 man-months. We are eyeing overseas expansion, and we have full-time engineers from Europe and China (with a PhD from Kobe University) who carry out development projects.
