This study analyzes the results of the Japan enterprise application (EA) and business analytics (BA) Solution User Needs Survey conducted in January 2015. The markets covered in this survey are enterprise applications (enterprise resource management [ERM], manufacturing, supply cahin management [SCM], and customer relationship management [CRM]) market and business analytics (business intelligence [BI], data warehouse [DWH], and other analytics) market. The survey explored the estimated business performance in FY15, prioritized management issues, each system implementation status and its background.
"Supporting small start-up by providing short-term implementation industry-specific solutions using cloud that are in line with mid-to-long term efforts is a service required by Japan companies in this current situation. Moreover, implementing data platforms that accumulate raw data generated by all systems will lay the groundwork for future large-scale system integration for companies who are fully committed to business analytics and data consolidation from all sort of systems," says Yoko Motai, software and security market analyst, IDC Japan.
