The other day, I had the opportunity to listen to Mr. Nakanishi, Chairman of Nippon Keidanren at the Foreign Correspondents’ Association 20 About a minute Society 5.0. It was a place to talk about it and hold a question-and-answer session. The first thing that impressed me was Mr. Nakanishi’s ability to respond in English rather than the content.

Stratus’ fiscal year begins in March. Right now, from December last year to this month, we are in the process of making final adjustments to our FY20 business plan, that is, our sales targets and budgets. Although the planning process of Japanese subsidiaries of foreign-affiliated companies differs depending on the history of each company and the position of the Japanese corporation in the world, I feel that there are many things in common in that they basically draw up plans aimed at sales growth and profit margin improvement over time.

Last week, I went on a business trip to the United States, Meetings to share and discuss business conditions are held regularly on a quarterly basis. In addition to that, December is also a forum to discuss the budget of the plan for the next fiscal year and major measures. Boston in December is often below zero, and it’s very cold, but when it comes to the budget for the next fiscal year, the debate will be even more intense than in a typical quarter.
I am writing this blog at Boston’s Logan Airport. Yesterday I went to see a Red Sox baseball game for the first time in more than 10 years. A Taiwanese manager who grew up in Japan and is a staff member at Stratus HQ booked a great seat at Fenway Park.
Last week, I emailed the head of EMEA Stratus with “Congratulations!” EMEA is a generic term for Europe, the Middle East, and the African region, and the representative of Stratus lives in Paris, France.
More than 35 years of experience with non-disruptive solutions. A column is written by the president of Stratus Technology Japan Branch. Part 6 is about artificial intelligence.
My business trip to the U.S. headquarters in March was a typical in-house business meeting, so it was a monotonous day. 4 days to the head office and 5 nights including transfer between hotel and airport. I was heading from my hotel to the airport on Friday morning.

What I Felt After a Business Trip to the U.S. Head Office ~ Challenge to Analog Life @NY ~Japan Stratus Technology President’s Blog vol.3
The week of December 4 we participated in a quarterly business review at our headquarters in Massachusetts, USA.

Watching the movie “Dream (“Hidden Figures”) reminded me of Community College in the United States ~Japan Stratus Technology President’s Blog vol.2
Last week, I watched a movie called “Dream” and the original title “Hidden Figures.” “Moonlight,” which won this year’s Academy Award for Best Picture. and “La La Land” to the end. It seems to have earned more money at the box office in the United States than “La La Land”.
