Data management will change Japan!
- Data-centric business approach (DOBA) for successful DX -

In 1990, Japan ranked first in the global competitiveness rankings published annually by the Swiss IMD, but since then, Japan's international competitiveness has continued to decline, falling to 35th place in 2023. Among various factors, I think the main reason was that the information systems, which were rapidly developing in other countries during this period, were not fully utilized in Japan. The country is now called an "IT underdeveloped country," and the reality is that there are many systems that are hindering its ability to respond to change. The Japan Information Systems Users Association (JUAS) established a system advancement project six years ago. After various discussions and research, we compiled a book titled ``Data Management Will Change Japan!'' that describes the ideal information systems and management that will help Japan regain its strength, and the methodology to get there.
