Tata Consultancy Services Japan has begun the deployment of a new communication infrastructure service called ASTEPLUG CI for Japanese conglomerate Mitsubishi Corporation and is concurrently providing the service to Mitsubishi Corporation group companies. ASTEPLUG CI is designed to facilitate internal communication and sharing of intra-group information on a consolidated management platform. This service enables a common communication infrastructure across the group companies, achieving a uniform security level. It allows companies to share information in a more flexible manner and promote collaboration among group companies, contributing to corporate efforts to globalize and enhance governance.
ASTEPLUG CI utilizes a hybrid cloud configuration based on Microsoft Office products and offers services to support email, information sharing infrastructure, real-time communications and account management. The combination of public and private environment enables a framework with high availability during planned outage for system maintenance, version upgrades and unplanned incident outages. Password management is performed exclusively on a proprietary authentication infrastructure, accommodating the respective password policies of each group company. Other security features includes multi-layered anti-virus checks and access control via predefined networks.
