The AI-enabled platform has provided a wide array of AI and DX solutions for over 500 companies, including more than half of the 100 largest Japanese companies in terms of market capitalization and actually impacted numerous projects.

Against this backdrop, ExaWizards and CyberAgent agreed to start a business tie-up for developing DX solutions and service growth using AI. The combination of ExaWizards’ high AI technology and service development capabilities that have supported many companies in AI implementation and DX promotion and CyberAgent’s capabilities to improve operations in keeping with changes in circumstances that have supported many companies in solving their issues and promoting business growth will powerfully assist companies in solving their issues and maximizing their customer value.
