Today we welcome NTT DATA Services, formerly Dell Services, into the NTT DATA family. This game-changing milestone ensures NTT DATA and our clients will remain a step ahead of the challenges we face today and in the future. We live for days like this!

And it comes at a time when our clients need a new breed of partner the most. Markets everywhere are facing disruptive forces that are defining new rules and introducing new possibilities. It’s an environment full of unprecedented changes, challenges and boundless opportunities – and it’s not for the faint of heart.  

NTT DATA has always been plugged into this current of global change. And now, as a combined company, we back our dedication to client success with an even stronger set of credentials – seasoned leadership, deeper expertise and more proven solutions to help our clients compete and grow in this digitally dynamic world.

Our remarkable evolution has led us to a place of distinction as a top 10 global business and technology services provider. We blend business and IT expertise with decades of industry know-how to help our clients modernize business and technology.  And as our two great businesses come together, we extend our ability to deliver local expertise through an impressive global team.

We’re also an organization that’s always looking ahead. We invest $1.8 billion annually in R&D with more than 6,000 research professionals and R&D facilities worldwide. Our complementary portfolios and investments will accelerate NTT DATA’s innovation in key areas like digital, cloud, analytics and automation. You can count on us to continue to foster new ideas that are rooted in our heritage of innovation and deep experience in technology and business.

Perhaps most importantly, we’re a company that lives to make a difference for our clients. Whether it’s project work, a digital transformation, an outsourcing engagement, or something in between, we focus our energy and passion on delivering the insights, solutions and outcomes that matter most.

None of this would be possible without our talented employees and leaders around the globe.  I’d like to introduce the leadership team that will take effect April 1, 2017 to join me in driving continued innovation with an unwavering dedication to client success. Directly reporting to me will be:
