Tokyo — August 9, 2023 — Asteria Corporation (Japan listed, Security Code: 3853) announced today that the number of ASTERIA Warp (hereinafter “Warp”) users, which has led the domestic enterprise data integration software (EAI/ESB) market for the 16th consecutive year*1, has exceeded 10,000 on August 1st, 2023.
The first shipment of Warp began in June 2002 as middleware that allows data from internal and external systems to be linked with no code. Due to its ability to facilitate system and data integration entirely without coding, Warp has been adopted by a number of businesses across various industries, and has maintained its position as the market leader in the domestic enterprise data integration software (EAI/ESB) for the 16th consecutive year.
Companies and organizations are pushing forward with their digital transformation (DX) plans, aiming to comply with new regulations such as the revised electronic books preservation act and the planned implementation of an invoice system, as well as to address workforce shortages and other problems seen across a wide range of industries. This situation highlights the urgent need to integrate and leverage data within their business.
Warp allows even non-engineers to easily integrate data, because it can be handled without ever writing a single line of code. It can connect to over 100 types of sources and destinations, ranging from internal systems to business applications like Excel and cloud services such as Salesforce, kintone, and Box, and offers templates that enable smooth and flexible integration. Thanks to these features, Warp has retained top market share for many years, while increasing the number of companies that adopted the product.
In 2022*2, Warp tapped into the Integration Platform as a Service (iPaaS)*3 market, catering to the growing demand for integrating and leveraging data in multi-cloud environments involving both on-premise*4 and cloud services. With its robust network of sales partners also expanding steadily, Warp user number surpassed 10,000 on August 1, 2023.
Asteria will continue to promote Warp’s ability to integrate with various data sources to a wide range of industries, including SMBs*5. Leveraging its no-code advantage, Asteria aims to contribute to solving societal challenges, such as the shortage of IT professionals, and help companies accelerate their digital transformation initiatives.
