Meguro Ward adopts “ASTERIA Warp” and breaks away from vendor lock-in. Linking the internal information system “intra-mart” with many administrative systems without code
*Enables flexible selection of business systems and quick response to legal revisions and trends*
Asteria Co., Ltd. (Head office: Shibuya-ku, Tokyo, President and CEO: Yoichiro Hirano, Stock code: 3853, hereafter
ASTERIA) has maintained the No. 1 share*1 in the domestic software market for enterprise data integration (EAI/ESB) products for 17 years.
Warp” (Asteria Warp, hereinafter Warp) is a city located in Meguro Ward, Tokyo (Ward Mayor: Eiji Aoki, hereinafter referred to as Warp). We are pleased to announce that it has been introduced as a
collaboration platform for the internal information systems of Meguro Ward).
* ■ “ASTERIA Warp” introduction background and future initiatives * Meguro Ward will be implementing the “Meguro Ward DX” in 2024. We are promoting initiatives such as improving the efficiency of staff in charge of administrative procedures through the use of digital technology. In addition, when reviewing the system configuration within the ward office to promote DX, we found that the current internal information system that integratedly manages financial and personnel and labor information was developed through contract development by a single vendor, so we found that the system structure was so-called vendor-locked. Due to various restrictions, we were unable to select the optimal system or tool for each task.

Therefore, Meguro City has started considering the introduction of a new system to break away from vendor lock-in. We adopted the enterprise low-code platform “intra-mart(R)” provided by NTT Data Intramart as an internal information system platform that can integrate and manage various business systems. Furthermore, we decided to use Warp as a platform for linking with individual business systems because it allows easy and flexible linkage with over 100 types of connection destinations and templates. Focus Systems Co., Ltd. (Shinagawa-ku, Tokyo, CEO: Mori) is Warp’s sales partner and Intramart’s BPM partner.
We started operation with development and implementation support from Keiichi). System configuration image
As a result, we have created a system operating environment that is not dependent on specific products or vendors, and have made it possible to introduce optimal business systems that respond to legal revisions and rapidly changing system trends. Additionally, Warp’s feature of no-code linkage with various systems allows for speedy introduction of new systems and low-cost system renovations. After introducing a new internal information system, Meguro Ward was able to digitize its workflow by introducing a new paperless financial management system, which had been difficult to adopt individually, and a document management system. We plan to continue working to improve the convenience of administrative services by continuing to promote DX.
* ■Future Warp business development*
The Warp series has steadily expanded its business, with the number of companies currently using it exceeding 10,000. We have maintained the No. 1 share in the enterprise data collaboration market (EAI/ESB) for 17 consecutive years. We are also receiving a growing number of new inquiries, including the promotion of DX to improve operational efficiency in a wide range of industries, and the need for
collaboration in response to laws and regulations such as the invoice system and the revised Electronic Bookkeeping Act.
Asteria will continue to expand sales of collaboration functions with diverse data sources to various industries, leverage the features of no-code, support data utilization to solve social issues such as resolving the shortage of IT human resources, and improve operational efficiency. We will contribute to the promotion of automation, etc.
