Qualtrics (Nasdaq: XM), the leader and creator of the Experience Management (XM) category, today announced it will open a new data center in Japan. The company is scaling its operations in the country in response to growing demand for the Qualtrics Experience Management (XM) Platform from businesses and governments looking to design and deliver incredible customer, employee, brand and product experiences.

Organizations in Japan are choosing Qualtrics to help them find new customers and strengthen relationships with existing ones, as well as attract, retain, and develop the best talent.
