SCSK was created in October 2011 through the merger of Sumisho Computer Systems Corporation and CSK Corporation. Since the merger, we have worked to enhance and extend our earnings platform-our foundation for growth-by consolidating and integrating organizational units, streamlining operations, and improving operational quality. Thanks to these efforts, we have, by and large, achieved the goals set out in the previous Medium-Term Management Plan. Meanwhile, the first year of the new Medium-Term Management Plan, which ends in March 2020, has gotten off to a smooth start and a path to dynamic growth is beginning to emerge. Finally, we have received high praise from a broad spectrum of interested parties for our “Reforms in the Ways of Working”-an important undertaking that seeks to create “a company able to provide employees with an enjoyable and rewarding workplace.”
Under the new management team, we will shift our efforts to implementation of the three strategies outlined below, all of which were set forth in the new Medium-Term Management Plan. At the same time, we will maintain our existing operating base and endeavor to promote further integration and accelerated growth.
1．Transforming into a service-oriented business
We will become a company that is capable of meeting the needs of our customers over the long term, and we will do this by providing them with high-value-added services that leverage on our company’s intellectual capital and IT assets.
2．Promoting strategic business driven by changing times
With regard to growth industries and sectors in which we can make the most of our inherent strengths, we will promote strategic businesses while paying close attention to the future outlook and growth potential of these sectors. In this way we will contribute to further development of Japan’s growth industries.
3．Pursuing the second stage of global expansion
In terms of strategic businesses that help Japan-based companies move into overseas markets, we will create new and strengthen existing support frameworks in local markets and thereby contribute to the global expansion of our customers’ businesses.
Expanding on the “Reforms in the Way of Working” implemented to date, we will proactively pursue further reforms based on the concept of “healthy management” and strive to firmly establish ourselves as a “company that provides employees with an enjoyable and rewarding workplace.”
We will do our utmost to ensure the enhancement of our customers' corporate values. To this end, we ask for your continued cooperation and support.
Tooru Tanihara, President
