High Value Business Benefits

With the new offering, NTT DATA addresses the growing need for enterprises to speedily federate and consolidate data across entities, countries and business units to achieve business efficiency and competitive advantage. The solution optimizes data federation across multiple disparate platforms and applications – including legacy systems, database sources, and cloud and mobile platforms – to provide organizations with timely, integrated and high quality data.

Customers deploying the NTT DATA solution can expect to achieve:

  • Reduced system integration and data integration costs,
  • Increased flexibility and scalability in meeting changing business and IT requirements,
  • Enhanced data governance, security and compliance.

Comprehensive Data Integration Features

Key data integration features of the solution, derived from the Informatica Platform, include:

  • Universal data access – Enables access to disparate system environments/data formats such as legacy systems, business applications, data bases, cloud services, character code, and structured/unstructured/semi-structured data.
  • Right time data delivery – Data integration latency can be adjusted based on specific requirements, and includes real-time, near real-time and batch mode.
  • Ensured data quality and security – Data quality can be increased and maintained based on data cleansing and name sorting methods, as well as through data profiling to understand data condition, context and quality. Data security and privacy can be greatly strengthened by masking sensitive data to protect confidentiality.
  • Visibility into data flows and location – By leveraging metadata and visualization techniques, customers have visibility into what types of data are stored, where they are located and how data flows.
  • Faster, lower cost development – Rapid time-to-market for integration projects is enabled by codeless, GUI-based development; native connectivity through out-of-the-box connectors; and extensive reuse of development assets to maximize developer productivity and ensure data integration quality.
