The agreement gives Japan-based NTT Data a new resource to help customers with growing data assets. NTT Data will incorporate GoodData’s analytics platform into its Industrial internet-of-things (IIoT) platform, which the companies say is popular among Japanese manufacturers.
“There is no better partner for helping to develop and extend the factory of the future than NTT Data,” GoodData CEO and co-founder Roman Stanek said. “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.”
NTT Data joins Brazilian company TOTVS S.A. as the two international IT services partners reselling GoodData’s platform. Kazumasa Taninaka, the head of NTT Data’s AI and IoT division, described the platform as the premier offering to handle the gigantic amounts of data in industrial IoT.
“The ability to quickly analyze 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,” Taninaka said. “We only enter strategic business and technology alliances with the best of the best, and we’re excited to enter this one.”

Stanek said manufacturing is transforming in dramatic fashion through a trend known as Industry 4.0.
“The fourth industrial revolution connects autonomous supply chains, factories and business networks with real-time data serving as the foundation of this development. VARs and MSPs will continue to focus on this market segment as more strategic partnerships showcase a wide range of successful use cases involving the industrial internet of things,” he said.
