Determined to tackle the inefficiencies and escalating costs involved in developing and operating their business systems, Yokohama City decided to construct a standardized, open information sharing platform, and totally rebuild their health and social welfare system. Tasked with rebuilding the health and social welfare system, NEC implemented WebOTX Batch Server, an NEC solution that could operate on an open framework and that resolved the problems inherent in executing large-volume batch processing based on Java. With the new system, Yokohama City was able to execute batch processing of large amounts of data, including more than 300,000 monthly child benefit payments, stably and efficiently.
Nagasaki City's old mission-critical business process system based on general-purpose machines could no longer cope with increasingly heavy operating loads. Looking to upgrade to a new open system, Nagasaki City turned to NEC to implement a new mission-critical business process system centered on a shared platform utilizing de-facto standard open technologies. Focusing on total optimization, NEC succeeded in building a shared platform system that met the client's requirements of fairness, transparency and is scalable, helping them achieve their goals of improved efficiency, reduced procurement and operating costs, and better citizen services.
