Key Features of L-series and BI Apps

L-series

  1. 1Made in Asia

    L-series was developed in Asia based on local requirements from over 50 companies in APAC region.

  2. 2User-friendly GUI

    Simple and easy-to-use GUI with a support tool using a lot of autocomplete to help local staffs enter data easily, etc.

  3. 3Flexibility

    Simple design but module-based, giving a higher level of independence which allows flexible customization based on customer needs.

BI Apps

  1. 1Analytics templates for verticals

    The templates was developed using NTT DATA’s in depth global expertise in Business Analytics, which has more than 3,000 professionals across the globe with extensive know-hows. It includes management dashboards and analysis reports that align with specific industries/operations for verticals realizing much quicker time to deploy than ever.

    This also solves a problem that many clients tend to face with Business Analytics, saying, “I cannot clearly imagine how to make best use of it, so haven’t seen its benefits yet”.

  2. 2Use of “QlikView” leveraging high-performance in-memory associative technology

    NTT DATA’s BI Apps will be built on QlikView, a data analytics platform based on in-memory “associative technology” providing high-speed processing.

Future plans

NTT DATA keeps promoting a strategy to bring simplified solutions developed in emerging countries such as L-series into both emerging and developed countries including Japan at a reasonable price (“Reverse Innovation Strategy”). Also, we plan to develop BI Apps furthermore and to make it applicable to other platforms to offer our global Business Analytics services more widely.
