News /NTT DATA Delivers End-to-End AI Capabilities with New Data Partners, Dataiku and Snowflake

PLANO, Texas – Sept 17, 2020 – NTT DATA Services, a digital business and IT services leader, announced today the addition of two new data partners, Dataiku and Snowflake, the cloud data platform, to its robust partner ecosystem. Together the companies will accelerate their clients’ digital transformation journeys and establish a trusted data foundation to operationalize and scale Artificial Intelligence (AI). In addition, NTT DATA and Snowflake announced a capital and business alliance to accelerate to expand Snowflake business in Japan and overseas.

In 2019, NTT DATA shared AI guidelines as part of its AI Center of Excellence program and launched Nucleus, an intelligent enterprise platform with AI and automation engines that helps clients create smarter digital solutions.

“Welcoming Dataiku and Snowflake into our ecosystem enables NTT DATA to achieve a broader end-to-end AI strategy to support our clients,” said Greg Betz, Senior Vice President, Data, Intelligence and Automation, NTT DATA Services. “Our clients across industries will benefit from Dataiku’s and Snowflake’s capabilities that make data and AI accessible and actionable in order to deliver rapid business results.”

In a recent study by NTT DATA, 79 percent of responding executives say they recognize the value of data but are hampered by data silos and poor leadership. And, only 10 percent reported that they are very effective at using data to adopt new business models and enter new markets.

Through these partnerships, NTT DATA will accelerate time to value for solutions that:

  • Consolidate enterprise data on a scalable fully managed, cloud-agnostic platform
  • Enable instant and fully secure data sharing at scale inside and outside the organization
  • Realize significant cost savings with fully elastic compute provisioned by workloads
  • Disseminate AI capabilities to a wider range of business users
  • Train citizen data scientists to leverage outputs of advanced analytics
  • Operationalize AI by automating machine learning workflow

“As strategies around sustainable AI evolve - both for companies as well as governments and regulators worldwide - the need for centralized tools that make organizations more agile in their use of data is growing as well,” said Michael Hortatsos, VP of Partnerships, Dataiku. “This partnership supports Dataiku’s vision to democratize Enterprise AI, helping more organizations build foundational AI for the future.”

“Today’s enterprises need to derive more value from their data and it’s important to provide a diverse ecosystem where organizations can connect, collaborate and get results from their data as well as third-party data,” said Kevin Miller, Vice President Global System Integrator Partners, Snowflake. “Snowflake’s cloud data platform helps organizations of all sizes make quicker business decisions at a lower cost in support of these top-line initiatives. Our partnership with NTT DATA helps joint customers accelerate their digital transformation journeys.”
