Cognite to Power Data Infrastructure of Smart Data Fusion

Capabilities of Cognite Data Fusion™ within data integration, scalability, and support for use cases that realize digital transformation key to NTT Comware’s decision.

Cognite, a global provider of Industrial DataOps software, today announced that NTT Comware, a global system integrator for telecommunications and other industries in the NTT Group, has adopted Cognite Data Fusion™, the leading Industrial DataOps platform, as a part of the data infrastructure of the smart maintenance solution Smart Data Fusion.

In Japan, the social infrastructure built during the period of rapid economic growth in the 20th century is aging rapidly. As skilled workers retire and the national birth rate continues to decline, many industrial companies face a shortage of on-site maintenance workers to keep these social infrastructures in operation. Smart maintenance using digital twins has become essential to achieve remote monitoring and to improve the efficiency and reduce costs associated with maintenance work.

Cognite Data Fusion™ integrates and contextualizes various forms of industrial data, including images and sensor data collected by drones and robots, enabling industrial companies to easily create digital twin environments.

NTT Comware develops and operates operational and business systems for telecommunications infrastructure for the NTT Group. NTT Comware also promotes and supports information and communications technology (ICT) utilization and digital transformation for other customers by using the know-how accumulated over decades of operation.

Smart Data Fusion, provided by NTT Comware, is a service that realizes digital transformation (DX) of facility management operations by integrating system information (IT), operational information (OT), 3D data, open data, and more into a digital twin space to analyze and use the data. Cognite Data Fusion™ was adopted as a part of this infrastructure because of its scalability and track record, including its ability to integrate diverse data and withstand increases in data volume. NTT Comware is the first system integrator in Japan to build and provide services using Cognite Data Fusion™.

”NTT Comware provides Smart Data Fusion to make social infrastructure more sustainable. To meet customers’ needs and develop the solution, we need a data infrastructure that has various data integration technologies and the scalability to withstand the growth in data volume. Cognite Data Fusion is the best solution to meet our requirements,” said Toshitaka Tanaka, General Manager, Business Incubation Department, Business Incubation Division, NTT Comware.

“Cognite has been contributing to DX in the industrial world by providing a platform that efficiently contextualizes various types of data generated in industry and supports data utilization. We are very pleased to be selected as the digital twin platform for NTT Comware’s new service, and to be able to expand its application to new fields such as smart energy, smart infrastructure, and smart cities. We will continue to support the promotion of DX in the industrial world and to make a real impact,” said Nori Tokusue, president of Cognite Japan.
