As Japan is facing a hyper-aged society, Personal Health Records (PHRs), which patients collect and manage their own healthcare information, is currently attracting attention. NEC is advancing R&D to collect "symptom data," "drug adherence data" and "continuously monitored blood pressure data" by directly and objectively accessing the source which are hard to gather sufficiently. With this technology, NEC will contribute to a reduction in the wasteful medical expenses caused by forgetting to take medicines, to the new drug development earlier with quality improvement of clinical trials, and to support higher accurate diagnoses and better medical care.

The optimization of spare parts inventories is an issue that is commonly found in the manufacturing industry. NEC Fielding, who are the subsidiary of the NEC Group and manage the maintenance business, also have similar concerns, because traditional statistical techniques have had limited accuracy in predicting the future demand for repair parts. The company therefore has decided to adopt NEC's big data analysis technology "heterogeneous mixture learning." This has enabled them to forecast demands with high accuracy. They have thereby succeeding in reducing by about 20% the inventory of the high-rotation parts that occupy a large share of the spare parts shipments. As the stockout risk is also estimated, this approach has allowed the company to challenge a more thorough optimization of the inventory. This paper describes the spare parts demand forecasting procedures performed at NEC Fielding by using the heterogeneous mixture learning engine and includes discussion of its resulting effects.

Enhancement of security measures has become a serious issue in the management of enterprises and organizations. On the other hand, sophisticated attacks, expansion of IT usage and the increasing complexity of countermeasures have made it extremely difficult to decide on the "level of security measures to be taken now". The security assessment proposed in this paper envisages current status from the three viewpoints of; the policy & control level, the communications status and the operational system. Based on results, a plan is proposed for security measure investments. This strategy provides enterprises and organizations with the source data for management decisions on the "timing and the amount of management resources (human, things and money) to be spent on security measures.

The needs for cloud computing is not seen merely from the viewpoint of leveling the operating costs simply by its introduction. It recently targets a greater contribution to customers' businesses such as improving the value of their businesses and works, increasing productivity, etc. To achieve such targets, NEC must not merely provide its own corporate services. What is important now is to build multi-cloud environments optimally by combining on-premise and private cloud environments with the public cloud environments such as Amazon.com Inc. and SalesForce.com, Inc. in order to optimize the situation of each customer. This paper discusses the multi-cloud utilization method that can contribute to customers' businesses, and the key points and technologies of systems and data migrations.

IoT - the Internet of Things - is "the next big thing" and it's already here. Revolving around the incorporation of sensors in physical objects or "things", or sensing the event or changes of environment. And then using cloud-based applications to analyze and leverage the data collected by those sensors in real time to create new values, IoT is rapidly accelerating worldwide As a major player in communications and database technologies, NEC is well positioned to capitalize on this trend and promote its development. The company has developed and reorganized its core technologies and system technologies to create the foundation for a powerful new IoT platform. These systems are already having an impact in the healthcare feld, which has conventionally been difficult to turn into a service, as well as in the physical distribution industry, which is involved in the transportation of goods. To this point, the biggest impact by far has been in the M2M market where mechanisms to quickly configure systems by more efficiently using existing infrastructures and networks are now beginning to be deployed.

The advancement of digitalization and the image quality improvement of surveillance cameras has expanded use of the computer analyses of camera images for various applications, such as for monitoring and personal authentication. NEC possesses image analysis technologies that feature the top performance worldwide∗1∗2 in the fields of both subject and individual identifications. The company is aiming at a systematic arrangement of its image analysis technology for use in a wide range of applications. These will include; a face recognition solution that identifes ndividuals from their face images for use in offering hospitality to VIPs, etc., a behavior detection solution that detects human behaviors for use in crime prevention, etc., and an object identification solution that can be used to collect retail inventory information or to check the parts assembly situations of manufacturers, etc.

Business environments vary continuously and are becoming more and more complicated. While a mechanism that can deal with environmental change is required, IoT (Internet of Things) is expected to be capable of creating new values by solving various issues. To implement the world of IoT, the embedding technology connecting the real world and IoT is of increasing importance. This paper introduces system solutions for achieving effective IoT that can deal with the constraints effected by various utilization environments, etc. This is done by implementing functions such as sensors, data communication and data processing.

NEC's approach to value chain innovation involving safer, more secure and more comfortable living through value chain innovation, is discussed. It is necessary to tackle Value Chain Innovation that creates new value by connecting people, goods and processes in the supply chain that links manufacturing, logistics, and retail and services. Value Chain Innovation is contributing to production planning optimization, inventory replenishment and inventory management through shared understanding of the status of sales and inventory in the supply chain and demand forecasting in the manufacturing sector.

Targeted threats represent today's greatest challenge to information security and have become increasingly prevaent in Japan since 2011. As cyber threats become ever more sophisticated and advanced, their perpetrators have begun to direct their attacks at a wider range of targets including government and municipal offces, universities, and public organizations, as well as enterprises. In this paper, we focus on the damage that can be wrought by targeted attack email - one of the most common techniques used to launch a cyber attack - and discuss how to dentify and protect against these threats.
