BearingPoint today announced that NTT Group, Japan’s largest provider of fixed and mobile telecommunications services, one of the world’s top five telecoms provider and one of Japan’s five largest companies by market value, has chosen BearingPoint//Beyond’s Infonova Digital Business Platform to modernize, simplify and unify its business support systems to better serve its customers, increase operational efficiency and grow new revenue.
The move is part of NTT Group’s wider strategy to bring its customers additional value through 5G and new services that are better tailored to individual customer needs and designed to support its customers in their digital transformation, by using B2B2x models and providing a rich set of value-added ICT services including IoT and AI.
The Infonova Digital Business Platform will accelerate NTT Group’s digital transformation by enhancing NTT’s ability to experiment, innovate, utilize new technologies, introduce new business models and services as well as improving its agility and efficiency, automating processes and integrating ecosystem partners.
NTT COMWARE CORPORATION, NTT Group’s wholly owned system integration provider will implement, operate and manage what will be termed the New IT Program, which will run the BearingPoint//Beyond platform as a global cloud native SaaS solution. NTT COMWARE intends to use the platform across NTT’s Japanese subsidiaries. This approach enables each NTT subsidiary to act as a separate, independent tenant on the BearingPoint//Beyond platform with the ability to add its own ecosystem partners, add sales channels and bring enterprise customers onto the platform as tenants, all within a fully frictionless and automated B2B2x model for maximum efficiency and to transact globally.
The BearingPoint//Beyond platform will provide service management, CRM and contract management, catalog and order management, fulfilment and partner orchestration. It will also support the monetization of existing and future B2C, B2B, SMB, Wholesale and B2B2x requirements as well as dynamic new industry marketplaces. NTT Group will also use the platform to manage its product and service configuration process, including offers and bundles.
