Japan’s Rakuten forays into India’s B2B tech segment, the Bengaluru-based technology hub for Japan’s Rakuten Group, is foraying for the first time in India with its products in B2B technology, and has launched its new ‘Code to Customer’ Observability platform – Rakuten Sixth Sense.
We have selected India as the first launch market as the region has always been a hub of exceptional engineering talent and a mature market that offers exciting opportunities for growth as Indian enterprises drive significant changes in their existing IT environments to support their growing customer needs. Also, we have a large R&D center in Bengaluru, which allows us to innovate and support our local customers more efficiently,”.
Rakuten India, is the largest among Rakuten’s 9 technology hubs outside Japan, has been an important tech hub for developing solutions for Rakuten’s global ecosystem of more than 70 diverse businesses since 2014.

The launch of Japan’s Rakuten forays into India’s B2B tech segment is the culmination of that experience, intelligence and learning. Rakuten SixthSense is launching in India and will gradually be rolled out to other global regions.
