October 7, 2013 - Tokyo, Japan

Uchida Spectrum, Inc. (Headquarters: Chuo-ku, Tokyo, President and Chief Executive Officer: Kiyoshi “Mack” Machida, henceforth “Uchida Spectrum”) has, since 2004, been involved in the development and sales of “SMART/InSight®,” a business focused software handling Enterprise Information Management. “SMART/InSight” has so far mainly been used by major, domestic and international corporations in mission critical fields.
At this time we would like to announce that “SMART/InSight” which was the driving force behind one of Uchida Spectrum’s divisions has had its Development and Sales functions made independent through the spin-off and establishment of the new SMART INSIGHT CORPORATION.

In order to respond to this market, fulfill future product development needs, increase our global presence and consolidate a position in the global enterprise market a new company was established for this specialized business field.

On October 4th the new entity SMART INSIGHT CORPORATION was separated from Uchida Spectrum, Inc., inheriting all assets of the “SMART/InSight” business and will begin operations from October 21st.
