Masashi Ohno, Sales Industry Leader at Tata Consultancy Services Japan, commented, “Japan's academic sector, most notably tertiary institutions, are today experiencing drastic changes, stemming from intensifying competition due to the nation’s declining birth rate, advancements in IT, and ever expanding managerial requirements. Many of these organizations also face the burgeoning costs and labor of maintaining independently developed IT systems or extensively customized packaged software, which lack the freedom and flexibility for timely modernization.”
