BlueMeme Group and folium jointly launch DX human resource development program

Accelerate the transformation of non-IT personnel into DX personnel

BlueMeme Inc. and its wholly owned subsidiary OpenModels Inc. have formed a business alliance with folium K.K. to jointly launch a DX human resource development program.

In September 2021, the Japanese government launched the “Digital Agency” to promote digital transformation (DX) of local governments under national leadership. However, DX does not appear to be progressing as well as desired. There are common issues such as a lack of DX personnel in local governments and companies, a lack of knowledge on human resource development, and an absence of business improvement methods. There are also problems that are difficult for individuals to solve, such as low wages due to skill shortages and high learning costs associated with skill shifts.

BlueMeme and its subsidiary, OpenModels (“BlueMeme Group”), solve these issues by helping municipalities, businesses, and citizens increase their digital literacy. In order to promote DX, creative destruction, BlueMeme Group offers a human resource development curriculum that utilizes its knowledge of large-scale agile development and in-house development support using low-code technologies.

For example, BlueMeme offers the “Urasoe City Regional DX Human Resource Development Course” in Urasoe City, Okinawa Prefecture, to train non-IT personnel to become DX personnel. This course is designed for businesses and citizens in the city to learn the basics of DX and application development with no development experience, utilizing no-code and low-code. In addition, BlueMeme offers DX human resource development training for Urasoe City employees and small and medium-sized businesses in Okinawa Prefecture.

BlueMeme Group launches a business alliance with folium to promote such DX human resource development business.
