KDDI and KDDI Digital Divergence will hold 15.3% and 34.8% of FLYWHEELs shares, respectively, with FLYWHEEL becoming a consolidated subsidiary of KDDI by April 3, 2023.

Through this partnership, the three companies will promote corporate DX by utilizing data, promote inter-corporate data collaboration by safely and securely connecting corporate data, and aim to support solving social issues and improving customer experience value, while striving for industrial transformation.

Using customer data and aus big data, Conata enables reproducing a companys business as a digital twin, simulating business activities against it, and then reflecting the results of this simulation onto real-world business activities.

Background and objectives of this partnership As digitalization advances across society, companies are required to create new value and transform their businesses using data and digital technology in response to changes in the business environment. On the other hand, many companies face challenges with data utilization, such as data shortages, not knowing how to utilize data, and difficulty in continuously utilizing data for business success. Furthermore, due to the protection of personal information, there is a situation where the collaboration between internal and external data has not progressed, resulting in lack of efficiency and activation in industries and society as a whole.

KDDI Group KDDI is promoting the improvement of customer experience value through utilizing big data solutions, such as providing the KDDI Location Analyzer tool for analyzing location information and establishing a company that specializes in conducting pedestrian flow analysis. Also, under the Satellite Growth Strategy, KDDI has established KDDI Digital Divergence to strengthen digital technology and software development through collaboration with various group companies that have the necessary capabilities for promoting DX and partnerships with external companies. Through this partnership, the KDDI Group will further promote the use of corporate data, connect society not only through communication but also through data, and promote the solution of social issues and DX for companies.

The management team and engineers, who have experience in global-level data utilization at major U.S. tech companies, use their experience and technical capabilities to realize data linkage and system implementation according to customer needs in a short period of time. By smoothly and quickly implementing the PDCA cycle of data utilization, they accompany customers in utilizing their data.
