Yellowbrick Data Expands into the Japanese Market Through its Partnership with the Nippon Information and Communication Corporation

Yellowbrick Data, a provider of distributed data cloud architecture for data warehousing, is forming a strategic partnership with Nippon Information and Communication Corporation (NI+C), advancing Yellowbrick’s global expansion strategy to offer the cloud experience across private and public deployments or at the edge for mission-critical applications in Japanese markets.

"Yellowbrick continues to win and serve large companies in financial services, hedge funds, and insurance,” said Allen Holmes, vice president of business development and partner alliances. “By partnering with NI+C, we not only expand our global footprint, we also further diversify our reach across industries in this key region. Yellowbrick’s hybrid cloud approach and NI+C’s enviable reputation as a communications provider represent a powerful combination to meet the needs of local enterprises and help Japanese organizations fully realize the value of their data.”

Yellowbrick’s distributed data cloud architecture offers on-demand elastic cloud architecture, eliminates concentration risk, and mitigates the often-unforeseen risks from vendor lock-in, according to the vendor.

Yellowbrick does this through the adoption of open source, open standards compatibility with both traditional on-premises and modern cloud-based ecosystems and by separating data storage from processing to increase deployment options.

Enterprises like NI+C that serve the telecommunications, transportation, and banking industries in Japan rely heavily on the Yellowbrick Data Warehouse to power critical business outcomes, facilitate data sharing and replication, and maximize the flexibility of multi-tenant billing, according to the vendor.

“Nippon Information and Communication Corporation is very pleased to partner with Yellowbrick in Japan to provide our customers with a new technology option for data fabric deployment,” said Takeshi Naito, executive officer and general manager of value integration headquarters at NI+C. “As many companies strive to become more data-driven, the Yellowbrick platform, a true hybrid DWH, is a great technology that can meet both on-premises and cloud requirements. With this contract, we expect to be able to meet more needs through the collaboration of the engineers of both companies, along with our deep industry and business knowledge and experience.”
