Since then, while expanding the scope of our business that include Internet Disclosure, Inc., a provider of timely disclosure information search services; Zeal Corporation, a BI system deployment support company; and Fierte Corporation, a financial closing operations outsourcing company, we have been involved in the development of management information systems to enhance corporate value, while accumulating know-how through our own practice of creating corporate value through group management.

There is a widespread belief in the public and private sectors that in order to put the Japanese economy on a growth trajectory, companies must not simply become more efficient through digitization, but must also undertake a digital transformation that aims to transform their business models through the use of data and digital technology. On the other hand, in order to continue sustainable development while addressing global issues such as global warming and economic disparity, corporate managers are now expected to engage in close dialogue not only with shareholders but also with customers, employees, and local communities, and to consider the balance among economy, society, and environment. Recent moves to reform governance and strengthen ESG disclosure strongly support these needs. For companies, this means that in order to increase corporate value, it is now necessary to organize a variety of information, including financial and non-financial information, and make efforts to utilize this information in management decisions. Spreading Accountability," which is the mission of our group, is precisely the "Management DX" that changes company management through information technology, and we believe that our existence value and the needs of the times are beginning to match.
