Cumulocity, the leading Internet of Things (IoT) software platform provider, has entered a partnership with NTT Communications Corporation (NTT Com), the information and communication technology (ICT) solutions and international communications business within NTT to deliver IoT solutions in Japan.
The partnership leverages NTT Com’s global network, cloud and data centres with Cumulocity’s advanced IoT application enablement platform. 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.
The Japan IoT market has been growing rapidly in recent year due to an increasing amount of collaboration between operations, dramatic development of technology, improvements in standardisation and a supportive eco-system. 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 leverage the two-sided benefits.
