Despite significant investments in technology and innovation, many medium and large businesses continue to rely on manual processes, fragmented enterprise data and siloed applications to manage their daily operations. Achieving continuity across an ever-expanding portfolio of applications and end user touchpoints is no small undertaking, especially when trying to manage new web technologies alongside aging core infrastructure.
NTT DATA business process platform, Intra-mart, provides one common platform delivered for process orchestration and data management, allowing businesses to connect their systems, people and process. Equipped with a suite of workflow and integration tools, Intra-mart helps automate, data-driven system processes across your enterprise application portfolio, helping you to get more out of your existing enterprise technology and data.
Intra-mart is a business integration platform that connects with enterprise and web applications for the management of business decisions, workflow and data processing across the enterprise. An earlier innovator in its field, intra-mart featured in Gartner’s “Cool Vendors in Application and Integration Platforms” as early as 2011.
The system is now the leading BPM platform in Japan and is used by over 7,000 companies and 200 partners in Japan and APAC. A crucial advantage of the platform is its visual programming language and low-code configuration – which enables business processes and system architecture to be re-engineered and with relative ease, efficiency and cost. Intra-mart has been adapted to various industries from insurance and financial services, to manufacturing and retail.
The rapid growth of web technology has accelerated disruption, increased customer expectations and brought about a constant state of change. Rigid applications and siloed organisational data are no match for the ‘anywhere, anytime’ demands of the modern consumer.
Drivers of change:
Proliferation of new media, devices and applications deployed over the web
Multiple channels to manage and engage customers and stakeholders
Complex integration and data aggregation requirements of mixed application portfolios including on-premise, SaaS, SOA or legacy applications

Workflow and business rules management is particularly helpful for organisations faced with high volume, repetitive and standardised processes. By systemising such processes businesses have achieved significant cost savings, faster service delivery and improved error rates.
