    [Market outlook by Techno System Research]
    The EAI/ESB market is expected to grow to 16.99 billion yen in terms of sales value in 2021, up 3.4% from the previous year. The breakdown of this figure is: 14.79 billion yen in software license sales, down 2.5%, and 2.2 billion yen in SaaS sales, up 37.5%. The number of user companies which introduced public clouds and SaaS products is growing, and more users are signing up for SaaS for collaboration between cloud services. Users seeking inter-cloud collaboration tend to use SaaS, while users who connect between cloud and on-premise environments often use software licenses and subscriptions. The cloud shift of users is expected to accelerate in the future, and the EAI/ESB market is also expected to see more use of SaaS. However, while new systems will mainly be developed on the cloud, existing on-premise systems will not disappear. Rather, the need to link on-premise systems to the cloud is likely to increase, and software and SaaS will be used in order to meet different needs.

    [Commentary on ASTERIA Warp’s market share]
    In 2021, ASTERIA Warp held the largest market share in terms of shipment, at 48.1%, and ASTERIA Warp is increasing its share, driven by the trend of DX promotion among user companies. Strong sales of Core, the subscription version of ASTERIA Warp, is a driving force behind share expansion.

Asteria’s Warp has steadily expanded its business and continued to command the largest share in the enterprise data integration market (EAI/ESB) for 16 consecutive years, with the number of companies having installed the product exceeding 9,800. In addition to the need for data integration in line with the promotion of DX in a wide range of industries and the enforcement of the revised electronic books preservation act, demand for compliance with the invoice system is also expected to arise.
We will continue to expand sales of Warp’s functions for linking with various data sources to different industries, and by taking advantage of its no-code feature, we will support the use of data to solve social issues such as IT human resource shortages, and contribute to the promotion of business efficiency and automation.
*EAI/ESB stands for Enterprise Application Integration / Enterprise Service Bus, respectively.
