It’s hot on Tokyo’s streets but even hotter in the corporate boardroom as enterprise and media players begin to look deeper into how the mobile space is developing and what path to profits their strategies should follow. MoMo Tokyo is looking forward to a great 21 August event where we’ll host an in-bound media study tour, with some 40 delegates expected to join us at KDDI’s fabulous Designing Studio, in Harajuku. The presentations will focus on two key mobile areas: project management and building community services. Register now for what will undoubtedly be one of this month’s hottest events!
Meanwhile, a quick heads-up:
The 2nd annual NetTokyo event in July raised over JPY800,000 for charity! Our thanks to all who attended and supported this worthy cause. It’s an honour and a privilege for Mobile Monday Tokyo to be involved with the organisers bringing together Tokyo’s annual “network of networks” meeting. While we’re passing out congrats, the good folks at NaviBlog, who presented to MoMo Tokyo in May, also deserve a big pat on the back for making Red Herring Asia’s Top 100 list. Best of luck to them for the final showdown in Hong Kong at the end of August.

Neeraj Jhanji — Founder & CEO — ImaHima .PPT HERE
ImaHima, well known for their mobile-related community and instant-messaging projects in Japan, will introduce Atlassian’s award-winning issue-tracking application JIRA and the world-leading enterprise wiki application Confluence. ImaHima and Atlassian partnered to develop, market and support Japanese versions of JIRA and Confluence. JIRA, with over 3,000 customers spanning 55 countries, has established a reputation as the de facto issue tracking application for projects, and Confluence, with over 1,500 customers, is now the world’s most widely deployed commercial wiki. Confluence is a practical collaboration and knowledge management solution that combines the simplicity of a wiki with the powerful features enterprises demand.
Masato Uesu — Group Leader — KDDI DuoGate .PPT HERE
KDDI and Excite Japan introduced a new joint venture, DuoGate, in the spring of 2005. The portal offers a seemless suite of converged fixed-line and mobile services including mail, photos, music, gaming, GPS and — of course — Blogs. With over 80,000 active mobile bloggers signed-up for Duoblog since launch, they have captured an early lead in the user-generated community content space. The combination of KDDI’s expertise in mobile Internet services, and Excite’s PC-oriented business, architecture and operations expertise for portal sites has allowed both companies to integrate their strengths into a unique mobile and PC Internet offering — a task that has so far been difficult to achieve.
