Cumulocity targets Japanese markets through agreement with NTT Com

NTT’s offering will use Cumulocity; IoT application enablement platform

German internet of things (IoT) software platform provider Cumulocity, has signed a partnership with Japanese company NTT Communications Corporation (NTT Com) to deliver IoT solutions in Japan.

The two firms said that the combined offering will enable 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 also said that they will consider further development towards NTT Com’s 140 global data centers.

Under the terms of the new deal, the NTT Com IoT offering will be expanded with the Cumulocity IoT Application Enablement Platform. In addition, Cumulocity customers will be able to create IoT solutions in Japan and Asia-Pacific markets that leverage NTT Com’s cloud and network infrastructure services.

“With all organizations in all economies digitizing, 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,” Atsuko Oka, VP and head of IoT office, corporate planning, at NTT Com, said. “IoT is key to this, and NTT Com’s global, reliable and secure connectivity, data centers and application platforms are essential to IoT.”

“NTT Com has a massive global reach and considerable connectivity, storage and processing assets which are all essential enablers for all organizations as they move along their digitization journey. 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,” Cumulocity’s CEO Bernd Gross, said.

NTT Com is a global provider of ICT solutions fully owned by the NTT Group. NTT Com has subsidiaries and offices in over 120 cities, networks in 196 countries and over 140 data centers. In August 2015 NTT Com announced the establishment of its IoT office to help customers expand their business.  

Cumulocity has its headquarters in Düsseldorf, Germany, with engineering facilities in Germany, Poland and Portugal.
