Accident Detection Mechanism

At present, an increase in the number of automobile accidents involving elderly drivers, road rage, and reckless driving has become a social issue in Japan. Also, with the popularization of connected cars and self-driving cars soon to become a reality, the automobile business environment is undergoing drastic changes.

At SCSK, we developed an accident detection algorithm utilizing our unique solution ,the SCSK Neural Network (SNN) toolkit, and further enhanced accident detection within the Telematics*1 Damage Service System, a new accident response service offered by Aioi Nissay Dowa Insurance using its cutting-edge technology as a pioneer of the industry.

The Telematics Damage Service System revolutionizes the style of communication from the conventional passive communication, where insured customers have to contact their insurance company upon an accident, to active communication, where the insurance company reaches out to customers upon detecting a large impact based on various digital data received from the vehicle and devices. We aim to provide peace of mind to clients by achieving prompt and more appropriate handling of accidents.

The SCSK Group will work with clients and partners in creating new businesses and services that society needs, which will help to develop a future society with greater affluence and comfort.

In response to the COVID-19 pandemic, nations around the world enacted a number of countermeasures to stop the spread of the virus including lockdowns and public health orders to avoid going out, causing major changes in our way of life.

Countless companies quickly introduced telework programs and systems in order to prevent employee infections while sustaining their business operations amidst this unprecedented situation.

Meanwhile, the workload placed on data centers, communication lines and network security devices increased due to the accelerated migration of operating systems and data once housed internally to the cloud, causing reduced operational efficiency of employees. Additionally, various issues materialized, including security threats posed by the spread of mobile devices and sheer breadth of devices in use along with finding ways to control these risks.

In such an environment, there has been growing interest in zero trust architecture because of its high affinity with cloud services that allows employees to work at any time, from anywhere and with peace of mind.

A zero trust architecture is based on the assumption of not trusting any source and only allowing users and devices with appropriate authentication to access approved applications or data. SCSK uses Secure Access Service Edge (SASE) solutions, a framework for providing network and security services based on zero trust architecture in a seamless manner on the cloud. This reduces network load and quickly provides a stable and secure network environment to clients with various working styles.

At SCSK, we provide the most optimal SASE solutions based on our wealth of knowledge, track record and trusted technological prowess; thereby supporting the corporate activities of clients and contributing to a safe and secure society.

2. Filtering (BankSavior® Filter): a function that collates with multiple lists at once, including anti-social forces, targets of economic sanctions, government affiliates of each country, and politically exposed persons (PEPs).

3. Customer risk assessment (BankSavior® ScoreBoard): a function that centrally manages customer information and conducts an anti-money laundering (AML) risk assessment for each customer based on their attributes and transaction information.

The risk assessment computed by BankSavior ® ScoreBoard is automatically relayed to the BankSavior® Monitor to be utilized in monitoring.

With social security and pension plans facing various challenges due to Japan’s aging population, there is growing importance of personal asset formation among individuals in order to sustain an active role in the era of the 100-year life. Amidst this, more and more employees working at companies want to design a life plan including retirement based on detailed money simulations and receive optimized support during life events because it is difficult to accurately grasp how much income they will have before and after retirement and how much they will spend depending on their life plan. There is also a growing demand among companies to provide an employee benefits program that enables their people to lead a good life, including asset formation support.

SCSK offers Asset Formation Lounge Efukuri as a service in response to these two distinct needs.

Efukuri supports asset formation closely in tune with future life plans. It uses life plan simulations based on personnel system, retirement benefits and pension plan to visualize a person’s income and spending in detail, and provide useful financial knowledge that helps to increase financial literacy.

Based on the results of life plan simulations and detailed records of service, Efukuri recommends various external services tailored to an individual’s own preferences, including nursing care, healthcare, childcare, education, and ceremonial occasions such as marriage. This makes it possible to support various life events in a timely and comprehensive manner. In addition to these services, Efukuri centrally manages scattered benefits information and company rules for different life events to provide services related to employee benefits in a one-stop fashion.

Summary of the Financial Brokerage Platforms (Japanese TAMP)

While Japan’s social security system is faced with various challenges due to the declining birthrate and aging population, as exemplified by the issue of retiring with less than ¥20 million, it is becoming more important to have one's own asset design in place in preparation for the era of the 100-year-life. In Japan, over half of household financial assets are in cash and deposits, and as such, it is crucial to promote the switch from savings to asset formation in order to grow assets over the medium to long-term. To do so, the existence of IFAs who support individual asset formation from a position that is independent of financial institutions is becoming more important.

As IFAs are able to purchase and sell various financial products independent of financial institutions, they excel at making proposals tailored to each client’s perspective. On the other hand, there is a lack of solutions that enable comprehensive management of various financial assets for individuals, as well as difficulty to streamline collaboration with multiple financial institutions.

In order to address these challenges, SCSK provides the Financial Brokerage Platform (Japanese version of TAMP) that supports the business of financial brokers. The platform strives to support IFAs to provide services in a more sophisticated and efficient way through its CRM-based solution capable of managing individual financial asset data, and API solution that connects IFAs to financial institutions.

Through our TAMP business, we aim to contribute to a more active society by supporting the promotion of turning savings into assets and contributing to the ample asset design for the era of the 100-year-life.
