The reseller agreement builds on the customer success with NTT DOCOMO to help more organizations deliver AI-ready data and accelerate digital transformation

Nusantaranews,REDWOOD CITY, Calif., May 22, 2024 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Alation, Inc., the data intelligence company, today announced the expansion of its global operations in Japan. Alation partnered with NTT DATA, a global digital business and IT services leader, to resell Alation and help more Japanese organizations find, understand, and trust their data. This builds on growing adoption by customers in the region, such as NTT DOCOMO, the leading wireless voice and data communications provider. Now, more organizations can leverage Alation to deliver AI-ready data enterprise-wide and accelerate digital transformations.

According to IDC, by 2028, 80% of CIOs in Japanese organizations will adopt AI, automation, and analytics to expedite digital transformation, focusing on cloud-first strategiesi. This shift is prompting increased investments in modernizing technology stacks, which allow users to leverage data to improve products, services, and business models. However, valuable data often remains in silos, restricting access and trust in data spread across the business. Alation centralizes metadata from disparate sources into a single platform that facilitates the discovery, description, governance, and management of data assets and products, including BI reports and AI models. This enables data and AI/ML engineers, data scientists, and business analysts to easily find, understand, and trust these resources. Alation accelerates the execution of data and AI initiatives, boosting the realization of business value and reinforcing a data culture at scale.

The new reseller agreement with NTT DATA will fuel the adoption of the Alation Data Intelligence Platform, providing seamless and governed data access across organizations. This partnership will extend data intelligence to more Japanese enterprises, facilitating informed decision-making that drives innovation and improves business outcomes. NTT DOCOMO is one of more than 550 organizations, including 40% of Fortune 100 companies, that rely on Alation to unlock data potential and cultivate a strong data culture. Using Alation, NTT DOCOMO has significantly improved self-service analytics, achieving a 30% reduction in data analysts’ workloads. This has sped up decision-making and strengthened digital transformation efforts.

“Alation is a critical partner in addressing Japanese organizations’ surging demand for data intelligence,” said Kazumasa Taninaka, Head of Design and Technology Sector at NTT DATA. “This partnership is poised to break down the barriers of data silos, equipping Japanese organizations with the essential tools for enhanced, data-driven decision-making. We trust the Alation Data Intelligence Platform enables and improves collaboration of data access and visualization of values in data by enterprise users. Together, we are enabling more organizations to leverage data for reliable AI and decision-making, fostering smarter analysis, decisions, and strategic judgments. This collaboration not only accelerates digital transformation but also ensures organizations are AI-ready and remain competitive in a fast-evolving landscape.”
