DX Promotion Set-up
Under the Company President’s leadership, DNP has built a system under the control of the Chief Digital Officer (CDO), and is strongly promoting Company-wide DX initiatives. The executives in charge of digital data, IT and cyber-security are deepening cooperation with the CDO, and are promoting DX-related measures effectively, and in a format with enhanced security.
In addition, head office and each business divisions are strengthening cooperation to promote DX while building a system to energize a variety of activities. By cutting across organizations on a Group-wide basis, we are boosting our comprehensive strengths, and accelerating the provision of new value. This has been achieved by integrating departments with strengths in the creation of tangible value, manufacturing for example, or with those that are strong in the creation of intangible value that enhances digital-related services and the experience-based value for consumers.
DNP is promoting efforts to combine our proprietary strengths in Printing and Information (P&I) and deepen cooperation with a variety of partners to resolve social issues. At the same time, we are promoting efforts to create new value that meets the expectations of people. In particular, at this point in time, we are endeavouring to realize a sustainable and better society, and more comfortable lives for people. We aim to achieve this by building DX-driven new business models in various DNP business areas centered on Data Distribution-related, IoT and Next-Generation Communications-related, Mobility-related and Environment-related businesses that we have established as focus business areas.
