NTT Com and AVEVA Launch Smart Factory Package to Enable Digital Transformation A cross Manufacturing Operations
SINGAPORE, October 16, 2018 — NTT Communications Corporation (NTT Com), the ICT solutions and international communications business within the NTT Group (TKO:9432), and AVEVA, a global leader in engineering and industrial software, announced today the launch of the Smart Factory Package in Singapore. The solution, powered by AVEVA’s leading industrial software Wonderware and the NTT Com cloud computing platform ‘Enterprise Cloud’, offers a highly effective and cost-efficient approach for manufacturers to embark on their digital transformation journeys to help streamline and simplify operations.
The manufacturing sector in Southeast Asia and globally is undergoing a period of disruption, with industry players looking to exploit advanced technologies to improve productivity and transform business processes. McKinsey1 recently reported that 96% of manufacturing companies in Southeast Asia believe digital transformation will create new business models, yet only 13% have begun their transformation journeys. Common obstacles of adoption include a lack of information, internal integration and talent.
By combining the industry leading Cloud platform offered by NTT Com and AVEVA’s expertise as an industrial and engineering software leader, the Smart Factory Package addresses these challenges by empowering Southeast Asian manufacturers to seamlessly kickstart their digital journeys in a cost-effective and scalable manner. The Smart Factory Package takes advantage of the Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) and combines pervasive network sensors, a scalable Cloud platform and advanced analytics capabilities to unlock the value of industrial data. Manufacturers can then leverage the industrial data for business intelligence or decision support, resulting in greater intelligence, efficiency and opportunity.
“The Internet of Things is a major force driving digital business strategies on a global scale. Manufacturers in Southeast Asia cannot risk failing to capture the plethora of opportunities made possible by this technology. The Smart Factory Package is a ready-to-go solution that allows manufacturers to start small and scale up as quickly as needed to help successfully navigate their digital transformation journeys. Partnering with AVEVA marks our continued commitment to meet growing customer demands for disruptive digital solutions, further strengthening our presence in the smart manufacturing market,” said Kiyoshi Matsumoto, Director Cloud and Managed Services, NTT Singapore Pte Ltd.
The launch of the Smart Factory Package is the next step by NTT Com to provide industry leading technology solutions for businesses of all sizes. Manufacturing customers, such as equipment manufacturers, have already reaped the benefits of the NTT Com Enterprise Cloud Computing platform through improved product reliability and reduced maintenance costs.
“The leading Cloud solution by NTT Com complements AVEVA’s asset and operations management software portfolio by offering manufacturers a robust suite of analytics, mobility and IIoT technologies, meeting the basic industry principles of simplicity, fast turnaround and cost control. The Smart Factory Package streamlines how manufacturers can monitor and control their current state of operations – either within a single plant or across the enterprise – with easily consumable and actionable intelligence. By removing information silos, it is possible to improve efficiency and profitability, while maximising return on capital
across the manufacturing value chain,” said Doug Warren, Vice President of Strategic Partnership, AVEVA.
