April 2017 reception at the Mitsui Club to celebrate Synergy Research’s 20th anniversary.
In 2018 we entered our 21st year as a going concern. At the reception held in 2017 to celebrate our 20th anniversary, there was a large turnout.
From here on I plan to take a closer look at the conventional approach for investing in business systems and would like to consider ways in which this could be made more profitable.System development projects often fail, and this has given rise to a host of issues that must be addressed. I believe that the ultimate cause for many of these failures is that individual system development projects are evaluated solely from a cost-management perspective. If system development is seen as something that can bring significant returns, sufficient funding will naturally be provided for that endeavor and all necessary measures will be taken to ensure that a project does not come to grief. More than anything, the ensuing profits will open the door to new high-growth opportunities in the software industry, and companies like the so-called GAFA (Google, Apple, Facebook, Amazon) certainly won’t be the last to experience success in the IT field.
