Cumulocity customers will be able to create IoT solutions that leverage NTT Com’s cloud and network infrastructure services
Cumulocity has joined forces with NTT Communications Corporation (NTT Com), the information and communication technology (ICT) solutions and international communications business within NTT, to deliver Internet of Things (IoT) solutions in Japan.
The Japanese IoT market has been rapidly expanding due to an increasing amount of collaboration between operations, dramatic development of technology, improvements in standardisation and a supportive ecosystem.
Analysts predict that the IoT revolution will create an explosive growth of semiconductor chips used to improve the efficiencies of various industries. Japan, as one of the region’s largest manufacturers, is first in line to realise the two-sided benefits.
The combined offering enables NTT Com’s customers to benefit from: rapid machine, sensor and device integration and data collection; real-time analytics for condition monitoring, predictive maintenance and supply chain automation; comprehensive device management and remote control; vertical application configurable real-time dashboards; and enterprise IT integration micro-services.
Both companies will consider further development towards NTT Com’s 140 global data centres.
“NTT Com has a massive global reach and considerable connectivity, storage and processing assets which are all essential enablers for all organisations as they move along their digitisation journey,” said Bernd Gross, CEO, Cumulocity.
“In NTT Com, we have found a very strong strategic partner extremely well placed to exploit the substantial opportunities for IoT in the Japanese and global market.”
The NTT Com IoT offering will be expanded with the Cumulocity IoT application enablement platform. The partnership allows NTT Com to leverage Cumulocity’s IoT platform and focus on local market requirements through the development of customer plug-ins, vertical applications, complementary IT system integration and local operations and support.
In addition, Cumulocity customers will be able to create IoT solutions in Japan and APAC that leverage NTT Com’s cloud and network infrastructure services.
“With all organisations in all economies digitising, there is a need to connect the once remote operational assets to internal business processes to improve service levels, reduce costs, increase revenues and operate with new business models,” added Atsuko Oka, vice president, head of IoT office, corporate planning, NTT Com.
“IoT is key to this, and NTT Com’s global, reliable and secure connectivity, data centres and application platforms are essential to IoT.”
