- Everis, which is now part of NTT DATA, will use its expertise in data governance to provide Cadent Gas, the UK’s largest gas distribution network, with Informatica’s new data quality software.
- This collaboration will enhance the quality of asset data and insight generation, whilst also optimising the company's overall data management capabilities.
Everis, an NTT DATA company and a world leader in digital, data, and technology services, has announced a new agreement that will see it provide the UK's largest gas distribution network, Cadent Gas, with data quality tools from Informatica, an NTT DATA Alliance Partner. The agreement will enhance the quality of Cadent Gas' asset data and provide insights into its business operations.
Cadent Gas currently manages huge volumes of historic data, so the initial focus of this project will be to look at asset data to improve its quality and enhance the insights generated. This agreement is the first project between Everis and Cadent Gas, and reaffirms NTT DATA’s capabilities as a trusted partner in Energy Data Management, a key area of focus for energy regulator Ofgem.
The improved quality of asset data and insights will help Cadent Gas to better manage its operations, reduce costs, and improve decision-making processes. These improved data management capabilities will also allow it to better monitor risks, including environmental challenges associated with operating a gas distribution network.
Eduardo Fernandez, Head of Gas, Power & Water at NTT DATA UK&I, commented: “Cadent Gas serves 11 million homes and businesses, making it the largest gas distributor in the UK. Energy data management is a core area where OFGEM has asked energy licence holders to increase digitalisation and investment, and our partnership with Cadent Gas will help it to meet the regulator’s aims. By delivering quality improvements to asset data, energy suppliers can drive better management of the gas network and positively contribute to their Journey to Zero targets in the UK.”
Marta Czerep, Head of Data Management and Data Science, at Cadent Gas, said: “We are very pleased to be working with NTT DATA on the modernisation of our data. Cadent wishes to improve our data capabilities and modernise our business to support the wider Net Zero aspiration. We are looking forward to working with NTT DATA and benefitting from its capabilities to future-proof our business with the latest technology for data management.”
