NTT DATA announced an end-to-end sustainability solution that utilizes digital twin technology to optimize energy consumption and reduce carbon emissions. The solution, which was developed with e-Magic, utilizes Microsoft Azure Digital Twins and provides organizations with the ability to model the real world and connect enterprise and IoT data at the edge to their digital twins in the cloud.
Tanvir Khan, Chief Digital Officer, NTT DATA Services said “This solution delivers value to clients in the short term with the ability to integrate large, connected ecosystems. The collaboration between e-Magic, NTT DATA, and Microsoft allows us to create long-term sustainability roadmaps to take our clients to carbon net-zero emissions while also reducing costs, creating new products and services, and improving operational efficiency, employee experience, and the overall brand. We see this as giving them a competitive advantage.”
NTT DATA’s solution begins with a foundation of measuring energy consumption to deliver real-time visibility in a consistent and reliable manner. By integrating meters, sensors, systems, devices, ERP, and more into a single view, clients will be able to see their impact in near real-time, track their energy performance, and leverage insights to reduce their carbon footprint.
Once a client has the ability to view their energy usage patterns, the next step is understanding how efficiently assets and equipment are performing in their environment. Analytical insights powered by the digital twins and historical data allow for fault detection and diagnosis of operational equipment, which can identify issues that waste energy, prevent maintenance, minimize equipment downtime and prolong the life of an asset.
“This solves the issue of data silos that create blind spots which prevent organizations from seeing if their systems are not running efficiently or sustainably,” said Tony Harris, President & CEO, e-Magic. “The data has been there, but there hasn’t been a solution that allows for measurement across the value stream within an enterprise. But the successful co-innovation from NTT DATA and e-Magic has yielded a solution that will benefit business operations and our environment.”
