Release of an Application Programming Interface (API) for the iKAZUCHI licensing agreement management system - Enabling automation of the opening process of cloud services -

Daiwabo Information System Co., Ltd.
AXLBIT, Inc.

Daiwabo Information System Co., Ltd. (hereafter referred to as DIS: Head Office: Chuo-ku, Osaka; President: Yoshihiro Nogami) announces that it will formulate the “Open Service Automation Standard,” an application programming interface (API) that automates the opening process of cloud services available on “iKAZUCHI,” the licensing agreement management system operated by DIS dealers, jointly with AXLBIT, Inc. (hereafter referred to as AXLBIT: Head Office: Shinagawa-ku, Tokyo; President: Akihiro Hasegawa), and release it on May 16, 2017.

The release will allow cloud service providers to offer their services to end users through as many as 19,000 DIS dealers across the country, by linking their cloud service systems to iKAZUCHI. At the same time, they will be able to considerably reduce the operations involved in the renewable subscription procedure, to achieve speedy service provision to end users.

Prior to the release of the Open Service Automation Standard API, DIS partner Cybozu, Inc. announced its intention to establish a linkage with iKAZUCHI with the help of the API, and will begin offering a linkage of its cybozu.com cloud service, which includes its Cybozu Office groupware.

On “iKAZUCHI”

iKAZUCHI is a software licensing agreement management system, including cloud service, designed for DIS dealers. It allows them to reduce the man-hours required for order placement for diversifying subscription-type cloud services, and to unify the management of contracts of continuous stock business, such as monthly and yearly charges, and contractors. It also satisfies the requirements for complicated cloud charging systems such as pay-as-you-go charging. It began handling Microsoft CSP (Cloud Solution Provider) products in August 2016, and is planned to establish linkage with more than 10 service providers by March 2018.

Keita Kuriyama, Executive Officer & General Manager-Sales Cybozu, Inc.

We sincerely welcome the system linkage between iKAZUCHI and our cloud service system, with the help of the Open Service Automation Standard API.
Complicated operations like monthly charging often pose an obstacle to sales of cloud services through partner companies. The linkage achieved by this agreement makes it possible to provide services promptly and smoothly to customers across the country who wish to introduce information technology. We will continue our efforts to contribute to innovation in the pursuit of an efficient business environment and work-style for our customers, by expanding and increasing our partnerships.
