GoodData, the cloud BI and analytics solutions provider, has entered into an agreement with NTT DATA, one of the world’s largest IT services companies.
Through the deal, NTT DATA secured the opportunity to resell GoodData’s analytics platform that will help NTT DATA’s customers around the globe better leverage their increasingly vast data assets. In addition, GoodData’s analytics platform will power NTT DATA’s iQuattro® Industrial Internet-of-Things (IIoT) platform being deployed by leading Japanese manufacturers to run smart factories, develop smart supply chains and dominate the 21st Century factory floor.
By being selected to partner with NTT DATA, GoodData receives a “seal of excellence” from an industry leader and takes a giant leap forward with expanding its reseller program.
“GoodData’s analytics platform provides the best solution for handling the massive amount of data produced by the industrial IoT,” said Kazumasa Taninaka, Head of AI & IoT Division of Business Solutions Sector of NTT DATA. “The ability to quickly analyse data produced by industrial machines and factory workers is instrumental to the success of the IoT and is becoming the backbone of the 21st-century factory floor. We only enter strategic business and technology alliances with the best of the best, and we’re excited to enter this one.”
Manufacturing 4.0, or Industry 4.0, is one of the fastest-growing segments of the data analytics market. By gaining precise visibility into the minute-by-minute performance of every machine, factory line and facility, NTT DATA customers can redesign production capabilities to improve everything from quality assurance to forecasting to machine maintenance and production.
NTT DATA is the second international IT services partner to resell GoodData products. GoodData launched its reseller program last year with a strategic partnership with Brazilian software company TOTVS S.A. The global market demand for GoodData’s innovative solutions continues to rise as companies across all industries demand greater insights and value from growing data assets.
“There is no better partner for helping to develop and extend the factory of the future than NTT DATA,” said Roman Stanek, CEO & Co-Founder of GoodData. “Japan has long been at the forefront of manufacturing innovation and excellence, and together we’ll create solutions that enable companies to fully capitalize on the IoT, data analytics and other advanced technologies.”
As a global leader in IT services, NTT DATA will work closely with GoodData to digitally transform the manufacturing industry using iQuattro® analytics. By combining sensor data with such things as a process, quality and production data, managers and floor workers will be more able to improve production, identify and correct machine errors and hone forecasting.
