Expanding B2B2X Businesses

Last updated : October 31, 2016

Make Good Use of "2020" and the Government's "Vitalization of Local Economies" Initiative as Opportunities to Accelerate the Migration to B2B2X

Targeting sustained growth in domestic businesses, we will create high-value-added services and accelerate the transition to the new B2B2X business model through collaboration with companies in other fields and with municipalities.
In preparation for the Tokyo 2020 Olympic and Paralympic Games*, we will advance collaboration with partner companies.
We will also work to support "vitalization of local economies" initiatives. In these ways, we will aim to open up new markets and create services that will become the standard of the next generation.

  • *NTT, NTT East, NTT West, NTT Communications, and NTT DOCOMO are Gold Partners (Telecommunications Services) for the Tokyo 2020 Olympic and Paralympic Games.

Conclusion of Cooperation on "Smart Stadium" Project

In July 2016, NTT Group, the J.League, and DAZN (live sports streaming service provided by Perform Group) concluded a cooperation on the Smart Stadium project, a groundbreaking initiative to promote the advancement of ICT (Information and Communication Technology) in J.League stadiums and club hometowns. Beginning with the home grounds of J1 League clubs, the Smart Stadium project will seek to establish Wi-Fi access and information services in stadiums throughout Japan. From internet access to new enjoyable content and services, the ICT initiative will extend the fan experience from the stadium to nearby communities in exciting ways. Clubs and players will be provided with innovative ways to cultivate new fans through this initiative, in turn establishing deeper connections with their local regions.

Participating in the Sapporo City ICT Utilization Platform Study Panel

In July 2016, aiming to build an advanced model for newgeneration ICT community development, NTT joined the Sapporo City ICT Utilization Platform Study Panel, which was established by Sapporo City.
As a member of the study panel, through the provision of know-how related to advanced ICT, NTT will work to support the creation of new businesses by local companies, the realization of highly convenient lifestyles, and the enhancement of services for residents. We will take steps in preparation for the 2017 Sapporo Asian Winter Games (opening in February 2017), for which NTT East and NTT DOCOMO are Gold Partners. In the Sports / Tourism ICT Promotion Subcommittee, we will consider how to further establish the Sapporo brand in Asia and around the world. To that end, we will examine the establishment and testing of a framework for the total enjoyment of tourism in Sapporo City before, during, and after this event through the utilization of advanced ICT.
