Vendor Analysis Summary for NTT DATAOverview
NTT DATA Communications Systems Corporation was spun off as a separate company from NTT Corporation in 1988, subsequently changing its name to NTT DATA Corporation in 1996. NTT Corporation retains a 54% shareholding in NTT DATA and NTT DATA works jointly with other companies in the NTT Group to deliver services to clients.
NTT DATA's acquisition of Dell Services for $3.06bn closed on 2, November 2016. The two companies had broadly complementary offerings and heritage, with NTT DATA bringing the application experience which Dell Services lacks, and Dell Services expanding NTT DATA’s infrastructure services capability. Dell Services also provided NTT DATA with a broader footprint in the North American market.
Dell Services integrated with NTT DATA’s North American subsidiary, NTT DATA, Inc., which NelsonHall estimates currently accounts for ~26% of NTT DATA's revenues. With the absorption of Dell Services, the newly created organization is now called NTT DATA Services.
In 2012, NTT DATA acquired U.K. based RMA Consulting to expand its U.K. and European based design capabilities. The acquisition brought in ~30 employees in web design and user experience consulting.
In 2013, NTT DATA acquired everis, an IT service consultancy based in Spain. While primarily focused on application services and consulting, everis provided a foundation for NTT DATA to build its southern European UX experience consulting capabilities. In January 2018, everis launched a dedicated design studio called Chazz.
