San Francisco, April 7th, 2021 – ForePaaS and the Mitsubishi Research Institute, Inc. (MRI), today announced their partnership to deliver cloud-native data intensive solutions in Japan. By leveraging the strengths of both companies, ForePaaS and MRI will provide a one-stop-shop to help customers achieve their data-driven management strategies – from strategic planning to innovative solution designs and full cloud deployment.
As part of the alliance, ForePaaS will localize its platform for the Japanese market. MRI will enable its customers to deploy the ForePaaS Platform on the Japanese regional cloud and provide full support.
The ForePaaS Platform is multi-cloud all-in-one Platform-as-a-Service for Big Data Analytics (BDA) and Artificial Intelligence (AI). It automates all the functions along the data-life cycle and AI pipeline, including data collection, data storage, AI modeling, application development, security measures, resource management, user and team management, operation and maintenance. The ForePaaS Platform provides an intuitive visual interface and enables teams to closely collaborate together on their data projects. This allows for much shorter implementation cycles than other solutions, lower project costs, and accelerated data utilization.
MRI works closely with its clients in Japan – helping them define their data-driven objectives, formulate problem-solving digital transformation (DX) strategies, execute data utilization plans, and build the resulting environments and final applications.
