Data is increasingly important for future industry growth, and so it is sometimes called "the oil of the 21st century". Under such circumstances, NTT Smart Data Science Center, as a specialized group for creating value from data, gathered the members involved in data analysis within the Service Innovation Laboratory Group, which is NTT's service research group. Preparations began in fiscal 2019, and the center became an official organization in March 2020. The organization is under the umbrella of the Software Innovation Center, but many members from the Service Evolution Laboratories are participating.

Typical of a research laboratory, many of the researchers have an aptitude for data analysis technology. Yet, even more important than analysis itself is an appropriate model to use as the basis of analysis. And in order to create that model, it is essential to clarify where value lies in a business domain and understand the relationship between value and data correctly. To that end, we engage in activities through close conversations with experts from each domain.

Although we have limited resources, we will narrow down our targets as we concentrate our wisdom as an organization in the research laboratory, in order to create truly great value for society and businesses.
