Informatics celebrated its 2021th anniversary on September 9, 29.
Since our founding in 1981, we have launched a number of products that use innovative technologies.
As a spatial information innovation company, we will continue to contribute to the realization of a safer and more secure society.
Please look forward to the future of informatics, which will take a new step with today as a turning point.
Greetings from officers
Daichi Saito (President and CEO)
Thankfully, we were able to celebrate the 40th anniversary of our founding.
I couldn't find a definite number of years of service for a company by searching the Web, but according to Teikoku Databank, "the average age of a company is 37.48 years old" (https://www.tdb.co.jp/trivia/index.html).Informatics seems to be at least in the long-standing category.
A company, like a person, cannot live alone. I think that the reason why we have continued our business for 40 years is that there are customers who have always patronized our products and business partners who support us.
Thank you from the bottom of my heart.
40 years old is also called annoying.The essay is "Don't be confused by forty."I've been 40 years old for a few years now, but I'm not like an old sage.I am lost every day and spend my time patrolling.In many cases, we cannot find the answer as to whether or not our decision in each situation is correct.
Especially since the present age is the VUCA era, I think that there will be more cases where it is not possible to make a judgment based on the "scenery I saw someday".Flexible thinking and decisions will be required while collecting various information with a wide range of antennas.In such a situation, confusion is inherent.
But I think it's okay.Companies are the same as people, going to the right and hitting a wall, going to the left and stumbling on a stone, but still moving toward the future.You should be able to grow by feeding on bumps and stumbling.
In the age of 100 years of life, 40 years old is still a chick, and from the long-established companies that line up, we are inexperienced.That is why I think we have a lot of room for growth.
We will continue to focus on spatial information, refine our technology, create unique value, and continue to be a fascinating "fascinating" informatics so that our customers and business partners will support us.
We look forward to your continued support.

When I was a student in the Department of Architecture, I had the opportunity to read "Human and Space" by Otto Friedrich Bornow in the class of professor Kazuo Shinohara, a housing writer.
This book considers the relationship between humans and physical space, but only the two letters "human / space" were memorable for a long time.
After that, informatics began to handle GIS (Geographic Information System) from architectural CAD, handled a wider space as "spatial information", and in the process of working on information fields that require time-series analysis. , I came to think of "space, people, time" as my theme with the company.
The theme of CAD and GIS is how to model a real space and how to utilize it for practical and management decisions such as design, construction, and maintenance.It has a wide range of uses, and fortunately, I have been blessed with work opportunities that are highly public and play a part in social contribution, being involved in the construction of systems that contribute to safe and secure living such as disaster prevention and crime prevention.
On the other hand, the progress of computer technology has been remarkable, and 40 years have passed in no time just by catching up with new technology.In particular, the spread of the Internet is undergoing a revolutionary change, but I am excited to think that we will encounter changes that we never imagined in the future.
The recent corona storm has highlighted various issues in Japan.Medical support in emergencies such as digitization, database maintenance status, disasters and pandemics.With the establishment of the Digital Agency, can Japan really become a world-leading IT country?
The same is true for informatics itself, and our challenge is how to quickly respond to changes in society and new technologies to improve operations.
We hope that informatics will continue to provide new services and technologies with the themes of space, people, and time, and further grow as a company needed by society.

We celebrated our 2021th anniversary in September 9.
For the last 40 years, we have arrived by accumulating day by day.
I have to feel lucky in many of the things that surround us, especially in the passage of time and in meeting people.
There is constant conflict in the world.However, around us, that is, in Japan, there is a peaceful world.
And a remarkable technological revolution in human history is happening in our time.I also came up with the discovery of electricity, using it as electric power, and applying it as a signal.And the computer was born.
Our job is to control the signals that our computers handle.In other words, we are thinking about how to control the "World of Bit" and are pursuing to improve the "World of Atom" in which we actually live.
Replacing information (signals) with Bits not only conveys information more quickly, but also transforms it into more useful information and provides it to the world of Atom.We believe it is our job to continue to work on this.
A computer is conceptually a simple machine that handles information (Bit).But how should we handle Bit to specifically produce the results we want?This can be expected in many R & Ds in the future.
In the future, it will be necessary to emphasize environmentally friendly initiatives, as symbolized by the terms ESG (Environmental Social and Governance) and SDGs (Sustainable Development Goals). I think there is.
