and itelligence,
today announced its companies will receive recognition for two awards at
the SAP
Global Partner Summit
on May 6 and the SAP
® conference, May 7-9, in Orlando, Florida, held in
conjunction with the Americas’ SAP Users’ Group (ASUG) Annual
Conference. In addition, NTT companies will make four official theatre
presentations, two ASUG presentations, and 21 booth presentations at
booth #421 during SAP SAPPHIRE NOW®.

The SAP Innovation Awards team selected itelligence, NTT DATA’s SAP
specialist, as one of its 2019
Process Innovator Award winners
for an application of SAP technology
that automated the detection of invasive species using drone images. By
exploiting new technologies such as drones, image recognition, detection
using neural networks, and deep learning, the itelligence team was able
to detect the highly toxic and invasive species, Giant Hogweed, at rates
better and much faster than those possible with human resources. The
team’s flexible data processing platform used the Hadoop stack to
process unstructured data with machine learning algorithms, and SAP HANA
as the database and application platform. The itelligence solution not
only speeds up detection of the toxic plant, but also streamlines the
obligatory removal process.

SAP also named itelligence the winner of a 2019 SAP Pinnacle Award: SAP
Global Platinum Reseller of the Year
. These awards honor a highly
select group of SAP partners worldwide for their commitment to value
creation, exponential growth and simplification. Of SAP’s 18,000
partners, NTT’s itelligence was one of only 30 partners worldwide to
achieve winner status this year. SAP will formally recognize the
Pinnacle Award winners at the Global Partner Summit on May 6.

NTT companies will share their SAP domain knowledge and expertise across
four different sessions held throughout this event. Leaders from four
