Nippon Chemi-con Chooses JustSystems and IBM for XML-based Global Information Visualization Solution.

Global Electronic Components Manufacturer Deploys xfy and DB2 9 pureXML to Optimize Inventory Management for 180,000 Daily Orders

PALO ALTO, Calif. -- JustSystems, Inc., a leading global enterprise software company, today announced that Nippon Chemi-con Corporation, a multi-national electronic components manufacturer based in Tokyo, has chosen a joint software solution from IBM and JustSystems to optimize inventory redistribution in its global operations.

Nippon Chemi-con sought a global information management system to visualize capacity at each of its production sites. The company processes in excess of 180,000 orders per day, yet each production site had its own separate platforms for order entry and inventory management. This lack of visibility led to wasted inventory. The company wanted a new platform that would support large transaction volumes, offer an intuitive user interface, and allow ease of customization.

Using the xfy Enterprise Solution for IBM DB2[R], the company will now be able to load balance production sites. Each order manager will have the ability to connect to a dashboard right from their desktop and see which production site matches an order best. This empowers the organization to meet delivery promises and optimize inventory across sites.

The XML-based application platform has been tested and validated to work on hardware supported by IBM DB2 data server software for Linux, Unix, Windows, or DB2 for z/OS. This validation means lower development costs for integrating with DB2 software, further enhancing the value of customers' investments in the xfy platform.

"Nippon Chemi-con continually seeks ways to optimize its operations based on the changing business environment," said Michelle De Hertogh, VP Business Development, JustSystems. "The company's selection of the xfy Enterprise Solution for IBM DB2 further validates the business value--in particular the rapid deployment capabilities -- of the innovative solutions IBM and JustSystems have created through our strategic partnership. By choosing open standards based on XML, Nippon Chemi-con has gained tremendous agility to adapt to future needs."

"We seize opportunities to use technology that enhances the development and delivery of our products," said Noritaka Suzuki, project manager, Information System Department, Nippon Chemi-con. "The xfy Enterprise Solution for IBM DB2 gives us the ability to reuse data at the client side, and it is easy to customize. Changes can easily be made right from the prototype screen. This should prove to be a powerful resource for us as we continue to hone our production environment in the global economy. Plus the easy-to-use interface has received a very positive reception from our users."

"IBM and JustSystems clients are benefiting from our complementary, industry-leading XML-based solutions that increase the availability and reliability of information and drive important business results," said Bernie Spang, director IBM data servers. "By delivering these capabilities we're removing barriers to using information as a strategic business asset and enabling clients like Nippon Chemi-con to improve their decision-making, responsiveness, and ability to pursue new business opportunities."
